Last week, Renee's Aussie friend turned 5. I meant to post already last week, but didn't get round to. Here's the card I made for Aden:

On Friday I went to Holland for the weekend to reunite with my Nike friends. It's very rare for all seven of us to be there at the same time as Jess and I both live abroad. When she sent us an email early January that she was in Holland for a week and whether I could be there too, I didn't hesitate. Of course we had to record this special occasion. Here's one of the many pictures we took:
As you can see we had a blast. On Saturday my mum and I went shopping in Utrecht, which was really nice. We were invited for dinner at my brother's house. Ingrid prepared a delicious lasagna dish. It was lovely to see everyone again.
I flew back yesterday morning, which was good timing, as snow hit the UK last night and left everything outside under a massive white blanket. This meant that all the schools were closed. We went for a walk around the estate and took some pictures. I did have to go out and get some milk. It took me an hour and a half to walk to the nearest shop that had milk in stock. The snow continued to fall during the day, which means that the schools will still be closed tomorrow.
Here's a little video of the snow using my new iLife'09:
Have a great Monday.
