Since I’m still coughing and out of breath from the chest infection I got before Christmas, life has been quiet… kids have had friends over to play during the school holidays but they’ve also been farmed out to friends houses for play dates as well and as soon as they exit the door I’m back in bed catching a nap.
Changes in temperature kick off the coughing wholesale and I’ve been so tired that going out has not been an option.
I’ve been sleeping a lot and sitting as quietly as possible whist inhaling vast amount of drugs designed to help me kick this into submission.
I’ve been looking at some of last summers photos and discovered these in one of my photo folders.
My physiotherapist is a mine of information about local places in the neighbourhood of her practice and after telling me about this discovery, Himself and I went out for a small lunch one day after he’d picked me up from my physiotherapy session.
The place is called “de Opkikker” and is a combination premises in that it’s a café at the back and a gift shop at the front, an interesting concept that appears to be gaining in popularity in The Netherlands.
I order a hot chocolate and receive a mug of hot milk and the chocolate on the stick: you stick in the block of chocolate and it melts into the milk. yum! Himself goes for tea and soup, I opt for the tuna salad sandwich. None of the portions are particularly big and the selection on offer is somewhat limited but what there is is very tasty. Good for those watching their waistlines. I finish with a slice of cake… and after a relaxing hour we drive home.
These photos remind me that it would be nice to return here again once I’m well again, it will be a nice change after looking at the four walls of home constantly.
