Su 02-Dec-2012: Visiting Sinterklaas in Muiderslot residency

Su 02-Dec-2012. Today Danique, Sjoukje and Ton visited Sinterklaas in his national residency in Muiderslot (Muiden, NL). This 400 year old castle is where Sinterklaas stays this year with his Black Piets and all the presents he took with him on his steamboat from Spain. The castle was the stage of this years Sinterklaas movie.

We took the ferry from Ijburg (Amsterdam) to Muiden. When we arrived at the Muiderslot castle we met Sinterklaas and his black Piets and we got a half hour tour. The ferry then sailed us back to Ijburg. Of course today Danique was dressed for the occasion in a Piet suite.

Fr 30-Nov-2012: André Rieu in Ziggo Dome (Amsterdam)

Fr 30-Nov-2012: Tonight we went to the André Rieu concert in the Ziggo Dome (Amsterdam) with Henk and Yvonne. Our parents were also invited as the concert tickets were our gift for their 55th anniversary in June of this 2012. Unfortunately mom was not feeling well enough to join us, so she stayed home with dad. We had sold their tickets online on the day of the concert but we all have decided to go to the concert anyways.

P.S. Danique slept over at Femke’s house for the first time.

Allergy test results

Fr 03-Aug-2012 13.00: Ton went to his family doctor for an allergy test. For over 10 years he is suffering from allergy attacks. Recurring yearly, especially in the April/May time frame. All those years he has taken medication as a remedy like Claritin, Aerius and Zyrtec (all antihistamines). But the actual cause has never been diagnosed. His family doctor signed him up for today’s test to find out more about his allergy symptoms, which are sneeezing, runny nose, itchy and watery eyes and difficulty breathing. The test showed that these are more or less caused by grass or tree pollen, dust, dogs and cats. At least now we know where it comes from and a possible better treatment can be considered.
