I slacked in keeping up the day to day journaling whilst on the trip, due to usually just wanting to go right to sleep, whenever bedtime finally came around 😅 And typically being too busy during the days, to post.
But in doing so, I now have no posts written up in advance and have to rely on photos to stoke the embers of memory, which saddens me because I know I have forgotten potentially interesting details. So from now on, it’s all just out of recollection and not from recent happenings.
Forgive me if the details are lacking 😉
The children were in school, so Judith had the morning to go out with us ☺️
We went to Coffee Brew Krefeld.
A modern/earthy little breakfast spot with tasty drinks and a menu filled with healthy, yet intriguing breakfast options.
Mike went for what was possibly their only non-healthy option 🤪
It sounded good to me too, but I didn’t want to just get two of the same dishes, so Judith and I went for smoothie bowl style dishes.
All of us got specialty drinks which were very tasty and the presentation of it all, made it all the more enjoyable 😉
From there, we headed into town to do some shopping.
Judith making it her mission to find me some clothing stores after our failed shopping in Arnhem 🤪
And she didn’t disappoint!
In the first store, C&A, she and Mike took off, loading their arms with clothing for me and then ushering me to the change room 🤪
I left with 5 skirts, one costing a whopping €2.99!😅
Redeeming the shopping aspect of the trip 😉👌🏻
I also ended up purchasing a slightly dressier winter coat from Vera Moda.
So then I decided the shopping excursion must end 🤪
Actually our time for being out before the kids got back home from school was up as well, so it was timely 😉
Mike made us all some poffertjes for an afternoon bite to eat, and once we’d enjoyed those and packed up, we began our journey back to Doesburg.
Not before some photos could be taken with each other though 😊
(Elaine had quickly changed into the same outfit as me when she’d gotten back from school, so it was no coincidence 😉)
Since Lake still wasn’t feeling 100%, we decided to stop in and see Oma at her pharmacy job for some advice 😉
It was also raining pretty good so we stuck around to give her a ride home from work, rather than have her bike home. The delay due to traffic jams, which we are so not accustomed to anymore, and then the little wait for Oma, put Lake over the edge as far as being in the car is concerned. Oma held ‘Luca’ in Lake’s view and that appeased him until we got back and it was Opa’s turn to help get him back into a happier frame of mind 😉
