Finally… Friday. Seriously, I don´t think I ever needed it more. I have been having a huge cold for the last 10 days and my head is just exploding at the end of each day because it´s so full of snot. (Too much info, sorry) Having the bichin having some weird nights doesn´t help either, he falls asleep really easily (I am still in a complete amazement stage over how easy our new going to bed ritual is) but due to teething wakes up several times a night. Doesn´t really help to get rid of a cold!
Christmas dinner at work
We had our Christmas event at work this week and the theme was (ugly) Christmas sweaters. So fun! I didn´t really look forward to it since I was feeling pretty sick and on top of that dinners in Spain don´t start before 9 pm, and in the end, we had our main dish at 11 pm and after that still needed to start Secret Santa… Seriously, I didn´t know what to do with myself (apart from drinking a lot of wine hoping they would kill the germs).
Tomorrow the Dutch club in my city is organizing a “Sinterklaas” afternoon for the kids and I am going with the bichin. In my country Sinterklaas is for my kids way more important than Christmas, that´s when all the presents happen when you´re young. Children tend to believe in Sinterklaas and Santa is a much less known and used concept (as far as presents go). The story goes that Sinterklaas lives in Spain but comes to the Netherlands every year in November and stays for 3 weeks until his birthday on the 5th of December which is when at night he will leave presents at all houses. After that he travels back to Spain, so even for the kids still believing it makes total sense that he visits them tomorrow.
Speaking of reading, I need some reading material for this weekend and would love to read your latest posts.
