Shhh! You'll wake her - Make sure you just tiptoe out again... And shut that door... Can't a girl get her ugly-sleep around here?!
Normal Fhina service will be resumed as soon as she has taken her post-holiday nap-ette!
I just wanted to say that I've spent almost a fortnight struggling to read some (never all, I'm not a very techie person!) of your comments via my new mobile 'phone handset, having upgraded me contract before me hols; A 'phone which was furnished with Destructions, totally impossible to understand, I might add!
And, you need to have the eyesight of a bleeding hawk to be able to decipher the script on the tiny screen, and then you tap on the touch-screen to highlight what you sort of want to read and double-click through to, but it's never explained to you that this inevitably hardly ever works... I struggled, I did, but the bits that I managed to read, (and I promise to catch up later this weekend -- I pwomise!), made me feel your pulse, and love you madly, it did!
I missed you like crazy, even though we, as a relatively dysfunctional family, did have a wonderful couple of weeks around Amsterdam, taking in the many glories of the fabulous Netherlands... More laters...
...Did I tell you we had lovely weather apart from one slightly duller and cooler day?
...Did I highlight the crazy, clever, funny, friendly Dutch folk (not unlike Chairman Bill can be, when he's not being all billy-goat-gruff!), who guided us from trains to trams, from buses to waterways, and making us laugh all the way?
...Did I say that we'd been evacuated from our hotel following a bomb-threat, and that we were actually in the spa when the sirens rang out?! What a picture we made, all three of us, wet, disrobed and raggled!
...Did I tell you about the fact that a bridge we were just about to travel over by train on our way back from a day in Gouda, got hit by a ship, so we had to take a crazy, roundabout bus trip with all our fellow, suitably confused, Dutch commuters who, like us, didn't have a clue what was going on?
...Only in the Netherlands, does a Dutch barge ship hit a rail-bridge, mes bloggy Appelgebaks!
Thank you for telling me that you missed me, mes dahlinks! - I want you to know that last night, feeling the ravages of what felt to me like the end of a hurricane during our ferry crossing of the seas, that I began to think on all of you, (yes, even the lurkers - Come out, come out, wherever you are?!), and that y'all saw me through a Night of Keeping Watch just in case we were summonsed to the lifeboats...
Did you know I can be a little bit of a Drama Queen?
Did I tell you yet that I'm never, ever, getting on a ferry again?
Did you hear me say that I love you, and missed you like the Crazy Cat Lady that I am??!
Well I do; So there! Mwah! Mwah! Mwah! Gotcha!
