On Sunday night Lily went to “High Wine” with colleagues. It was a 4-course meal with different wines for each course. She really enjoyed herself (obviously!), it sounds like quite a giggle. One of the courses was a series of savoury macarons which she found disgusting!
Monday I cycled to meet my lovely Hyacinth for breakfast in Hema. It’s a very good value, IKEA style “7 items for €3” or something. I loved it. We had a good chat and then I went straight onto the BSF prayer meeting. That was great, and afterwards two of us spoke with a staff member of Xrds about getting the word out, BSF starts in September! 😀🙌✅
Currently we are expecting to hold it in someone’s home in Amsterdam, and on a Wednesday or Thursday morning. We’ll be confirmed next week.
Then I cycled home and I’d been out for 5 hours. Next a bus to Hoofddorp with Lily for some jeans. I hate clothes shopping! but finally she found some comfortable jeans to fit, and a cute little black &white retro outfit in Mango, a big collared blouse with a deep v / pinafore type dress to go over.

Two of the bushes in the front garden have labels and are rhododendrons, “wilgens ruby” which will look like this if I can care for them:
That would be lovely. Obviously they’ve been neglected and then we had a drought. So I will look up what to do to them.
There’s also a small holly.
We made cookies with a teaspoon of “speculaas spice” in. Mmmm!
