Great Stuff Inside, Beginning With A Bouncing Start…

Following yesterday’s post about our summer visit Kazerne Scheveningen, (Scheveningen Fire Station), a beautiful building known locally as the “barracks Duinstaat Castle” due to it’s style of architecture.

The Kazerne (pronounced “car zer nuh”) started out life as a combined police station and fire station but’s it’s services have since been transferred: the police station to another location close by and the new fire station located right next door.

Himself and I have bought Little Mr and two of his neighbourhood friends to an Open Day so that they can have a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on. The Open Day is taking place in the current fire station, the large ladder appliance is outside, as are a few other things that are being set up, but it is a large bouncy castle located just inside one of the engine bays that captures the attention of the kids first. They play for a while before pausing for breath and starting to look around at the exhibits on display. There are motorcycles to sit on and engines to take a look at, certainly enough to keep kids happy…

p.s. Himself has been on the phone half of the day to the two companies who provide our phone and internet, they continue (as per the past 10 days) to blame each other. Finally Himself manages to get contact with someone in management and after some “I-am-now-a-seriously-unhappy-customer” chat, we got a promise that someone from tech support (again!!!) will ring us. This time they spend a further 45 minutes on the phone with Himself, having him crawling under desks to do stuff to the modem and general process of elimination until they eventually solved things. Yeeeeah …Fingers crossed!
