Hip Hip Hooray!
My middle daughter and I celebrated our birthday last week. While my daughter is in the prime of her life and another year doesn't show, this is not the case with her mother :-) But.....as Shakespeare once said: 'With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come'. Mirth and laughter certainly play an important part in my life.
I made a blueberry cake for our party. It has a cheesecake topping, which is really delicious. The cake is fruity, moist and the combination between the topping and soured cake really good. It will look stunning on your tea table, especially when you decorate the cake with blue violets. If you are interested in the recipe,you can find it here.
Today is the start of celebratory week in Holland. Our queen Beatrix will abdicate in favour of her son Willem Alexander. Tuesday will be the day when it all happens. There will be flags and bunting around Holland. Street parties and flea markets in every town and village and lots of people dressed in our national colour, orange. My family and I will follow the ceremony on tv and go into town afterwards. Looking forward to it very much!
Wishing all my Dutch followers a sunny and joyful Kings Day. A big 'Thank you' and Hip Hip Hooray to our queen, for being just the way she is.
A Happy new week to you all.
