That’s right there’s a parade here just to show locally produced flowers in Rijnsburg. They even had some older cars to show too.
The the parade of the flowers floats started.
Yes that’s right, there’s Edina, Patsy, Saffron and mother. Absolutely Fabulous is really enjoyed here.
We loved this one.
I had to get a picture of Christopher in here somewhere.
Out started raining so we decided even though it wasn’t the end it seemed like a good time to leave.
It gently reminded me of the Rose Parade.
I’ve had this recipe for months I keep saying I’m going to make it.
So I decided that I would make it this week.
- 1 package yellow cake mix
- 2½ cups quick-cooking oats
- ¾ cups butter, melted
- 1 cup blackberry preserves or jam
- 1 Tbls water (optional)
Above are the ingredients that I used obviously I melted the butter.
Firstly I put the cake mix into the mixing bowl.
I then added the the oatmeal.
Then I added the butter and mixed it together.
I then pressed half the mix into the dish.
After adding the jam on top of the mix I then added the remaining mix to the top of the bars.
I cooked it for 24 minutes at about 180-200 degrees.
When cooked I cut them into squares.
After tasting them they were a bit sickly even for me.
Well I never thought I’d fall captive to something that all of my friends enthralled 18 years ago and I had no time or place for it. But it caught me.
Christopher got it on his phone first as he had a UK account through Apple but I had to wait for it to be released into Dutch Androids.
I know the day it was going to be he told me it was going to be ready in the evening that day. But me being me I decided to try and download it an hour later, so early afternoon I tried it. It worked.
We decided my Pokémon Go name would be LalaTibbs.
I thought give it ago. I walk a lot I thought it would make them more interesting.
I know not a normal place for a fish but does it need a normal place?
Yes I even gave it a go in my front room.
Throughout Leiden the places of interest. It’s fun knowing where some of them were which they had picked and it even showed me ones I didn’t know about.
I thought the one below was both cute and creepy.
My Weedle wanted to share my lunch too.
The one below is actually on the street where we live.
The bottom one is the last one I hatched from an egg. I was like ooooo I’m like a pokémummy lol.
We found out there was an exhibition on the beach of sand sculptures.
We decided when we got there we would go and take a little walk on the beach.
We were kind of expecting it to be hot like the week before but no we were wrong. Oh well.
Christopher needed new sunglasses so he went looking and I went down to the beach.
I even buried my feet in was having fun very quickly.
We then decided we should go the sea.
Then we went searching for the same sculptures, I decided to look online to find out where they were.
We had a great day out
I went to my favourite cheap shop as per usual to see what I could get. They usual have loads of craft stuff.
They had loads of crappy stuff with only dutch instructions. Of course I was like “Arrrggghhh ik spreek geen Nederlands” in English that means “I don’t speak dutch”
But this one had English instructions! I was like woohoo!
These are all of the parts for my blue bird.
I know that was a lot of photos but if I’d have talked about all of them it would have kind of been like “I did this blah, blah, blah” I know you don’t always need that, you could see the progress.
We wanted to go here 4 and half years ago with my parents but disaster struck when we got there the road had been washed away.
So in our visit back to Pasadena for Christopher for written purposes, we decided that we should do it on the way back from Palmdale. Yes it extended our journey from 1 and a half hours to 8 nearly 9 hours. Oh well.
WooHoo we were there.
I’ll warn me this is so many pictures and for a change not a lot of chatting.
My view from my little climb up.
A peek at Skull Rock. Yes I know that’s a rock out of Peter Pan.
If you can see it here’s a Dirt Devil. Kind of like a mini dust tornago.
There was a small tour of the Joshua Tree national park.
Yes that’s right, we were in Los Angeles county so we said we had to go Universal Studios to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
We were so excited.
When we got there we went straight to Hogsmead.
Here is the conductor for the Hogwarts Express.
We met the conductor from the Hogwarts Express.
My new Gryffindor t-shirt.
Then we did a little bit of photo opportunities.
I had to try a thing hat on. Come on its a hat
At 221b Baker Street.
Me and my new best friend Spongbob.
Us with Gru and a minion.
Then we were photobombed by a minion.
We eventually got the picture we wanted.
