with a flash visit to Holland
to celebrate my stepmother's (who comes up with a better word please?) 90th birthday, and of course to see a few more family members and catch up with some friends. It was great to see them all and to find them all in good shape. Four days was quite enough to do all that and some shopping. I even enjoyed a lot of sunshine, but having the car windows frozen was a nearly forgotten experience which I didn't mind exchanging for the Spanish climate once more.
