Dear blogfriends, thank you very much for your kind birthday wishes! I still can't believe that it is already twenty years ago that my eldest daughter was born.....
As you can see on the pictures above our Christmas tree is finally decorated. You have to know that I have at least eight boxes of Christmas ornaments in our loft. More than enough to decorate not only one, but three trees with!
I finally chose silver, grey, very soft pink and white ornaments. I added the little angels and hearts I bought at the Christmas fair. I am very happy with the result. The tree looks simple but beautiful. What I am most happy about is that it is still standing upright. Hopefully it will stay this way till New Years day!
At the moment snow is falling down heavily. I think there must be at least ten centimetres of it outside. We just went for a walk to our garden. It was magical. I will show you the photos soon. Enjoy your Sunday!
Lieve groet, Madelief

It was such a lovely day today! When I woke up this morning, I could see from the light shining through the curtains, that there was snow outside. I was one of the first to go outside. Not only because of the snow, but mostly because I start work at a quarter past seven. What a beautiful, still world it was. So special to hear your own footsteps! Even in town you could hardly hear the noise of the trains and cars.
I took a break from work, to take some pictures when the sun was coming up. It was fabulous to see Schiedam waking up; the snow, the old houses and lanterns, the Christmas decorations. The pictures may be familiar to you, but with a layer of snow everything looks different. When this post is finished I will finally write my Christmas cards. I have been postponing it because it's such a huge job. I also have to make some preparations for the birthday of my eldest daughter. She will be twenty tomorrow! I wish you all a lovely evening!
