A bite to eat at the Schipol Airport

I visited Meppel and stayed with my Ex, Patricia (Trish is what I call her) over Xmas to spend some time with her and our children before I was to leave to go back to Australia.

I had lived in Meppel before with Trish and the kids, but this was 3 years ago when we first moved here and not as cold that time. This time I got to experience so much more.

 

Meppel is a nice small town, just a really good size, away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities bit with everything you would want. Lot’s of Dutch things to experience here, from the food to canals and even a couple of windmills.

 

Most of my time was spent with my daughters, but we got out and about a bit and enjoyed what there is to enjoy. I went ice skating with Reagan, which was great fun, it was my second time doing it, but the last time only lasted 5 minutes… so being out in the cold (minus 7 degrees Celsius) was amazing. There was frost and snow on the fake ice surface, enough so that every time we fell over we would get cold and wet. But that’s part of the fun in doing this with a 6 year old… it became a game to just fall over and laugh! I even got to walk on my first frozen pond, which felt really weird.


I had a couple of great visits from Dutch friends I made while in Scotland, thanks Jan Z and Tjakko for coming to visit me in Meppel. I hope they enjoyed the 5 minute tour of the city! Only joking there is more to see than that and Trish acted as tour guide


I also got the opportunity to meet up with a fellow TB friend, Karina (Koala) who came to visit and stay the night with us. It was great to meet you Karina, stay sweet!

Thanks Trish for everything! You are a wonderful person and I won't let you forget it!
