Parental visit to Me!

Published July 31, 2015 by theycallmemrstibbs

I know I’m a bit late with this my parents came to visit for 6 days on the 9th July. Christopher was at a conference for the first 2 days so it was all down to me to entertain them.

So i got the train very early to Schiphol Amsterdam airport to meet them.
I had enough time to go for a Vanilla Lemon frappecino from starbucks,  unhealthy I know but I needed it.
They arrived off of the plane a little early, but I had arrived from Leiden a bit early too.

When we had gotten the train from the airport we had to go to my house to have a cup of tea, then we decided that we would go to Dende for lunch.
After lunch we went on a walk up to the Burcht van Leiden
As you can see from the link is a tower in Leiden which I have been to before.
Whoops I thought I’d done a blog post on that but no. So I’ll take another trip to do one. 😳

Any way after the little walk they went back to their hotel and for this great “typical” dutch view

We decided to go for a walk to decide on what we would have for dinner we ended up going to a place where Christopher had previously advise me of. Grand Cafe Van Buuren

After this we realised that it was getting later in the afternoon so we walked back to my house as Christopher was coming home in a wee while. So we were relaxing and I got a message saying he was on the train back to Leiden from Schiphol airport. So I walked up to meet him.
When he arrived we went home and my parents went back to their hotel and we all got prepared to go out for dinner.
We went to mine Christopher’s favourite British bar The North End Pub

On the Saturday we decided we should go to the beach as it was a good day.image

On the Monday we decided we should go to the Hague.

Obviously I have done a previous blog post about the Hague.

That evening we went for a wander to decide where to eat. It took us a very long time and walk.
We found here.

On my last day in Leiden with my parents we decided we should try and take it a bit easier, due to medical reasons. So we went for a walk around Leiden for them to get gifts for everyone.
After our lots of walking I became very fatigued, so my parents went on a canal tour on their own. I went home to rest.
That evening we went to an Italian restaurant it was really nice.

On the Wednesday morning we got the train to Schiphol airport with my parents.

It was great having them come to stay with us.

    Living life with a chronic illness is definitely not easy. But I do my best to push through all the barriers this illness puts in front of me! In my heart and mind, I believe maintaining a positive outlook on all situations in life will carry us through to much better times! I hope you find the information that I provide both helpful and inspirational!
