On Christmas Eve I travelled to Houten to my niece Heidi, daughter of Wim, where I would stay for a few days, or rather, till after New Year's Eve. Together we spent the evening with Wim and Gerrie watching 'All you need is Love'. I was warned to bring a box of tissues, but I managed alright. We finished the night with a very late supper. When we were young we would go to the midnight Service and then have breakfast before going to bed. The Service is a thing of the past, but the traditional meal is great.
That night I didn't have to sleep on an air mattress, as I was told before, but Heidi had bought a great bed for the spare bedroom, which looked grand and I slept well the whole week long.

On the way back to Houten we found a few of a series, but it was too windy and too cold to do much more than that.
