Sadness and joy hand in hand

Goodmorning everybody!

It was a strange kind of weekend this one. Just on Friday there was shocking news on tv about our Royal Family. They are on a short winter holiday in Austria( as they do already for many years) but we were informed, that one of our Queen's sons had been in a skiing accident and still is in hospital.
I have a link for you where you an read the whole story.

We all hope and pray that he will come out of it without any consequences for his health. I can imagine that his mother, our Queen, and the whole family are having a terrible time.

And as so many times, grieve and joy go hand in hand.
This weekend were the world championships speed skating allround and our Dutch team did very well.
With the men even extremely well, cause we were on the 1st, (Sven Kramer), 2nd(Jan Blokhuijsen) and 3rd (Koen Verweij) place! And with the women we also have a Dutch world champion, Ireen Wüst!
Congratulations to all of them!
Here a picture of out two world champions
You can imagine, I didn;t do too much during this weekend, LOL.

So I should do some stuff around here today. But it also looks to be nice weather outside, so it might be a good idea to go outside for a little while. Oh, Jan did go to the market last Friday and brought home somme veggies and a lot of apples. So it might be a good idea to prepare the veggies for the freezer today.
And then there is also some laundry waiting for me to be ironed. Hmmm, if I really throw myself in to it, it wouldn;t take too much time to get that done.
Sun is shining at the moment into the room and oh wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, what a terrible sight is that! Why? Because now I see all the dust and mess on the wooden floor too well, LOL! So I suppose the vacuum cleaner has to be used too today. With all that in mind, I better start not too late with it all.
The freebie of today is "Eveline", a little kit that can be very versatile.
Have some fun with it and have a great day!
