Not too much to report about Jan. still walking very difficult which will be the case for longer time, I think.
But the would seems to be healing, although very slowly. He said he has less leaking from it, but still needs a proper bandage and such on it.
I will take a look at it today, as I have to help him a bit in changing it.
Yesterday we had our "Prinsesdag"again, which is the start of a new year in parliament.
Then the ministers present their plans for next year and on, our King reads the throne speach, a summary of the plans, and I pity him a bit, because he has no real influence on the content, but has to read it out loud, wether it is good or bad news.
Our queen Maxima had again a gorgeous outfir, and the weather was outstanding for the ride in the Golden Coach. This year it was celebrated the 200 years of excistance of Prinsjesdag. I have found some photos, for you with Maxima on it.
Then, with the reading of the tjrone speach, all ministers and members of parliament are in the Ridderzaal.
And it always fun to see what creations the women wear, specially their hats.
Found a summary of them for you to watch, a couple of them had good taste, but there are some who had no good advice, or simply didn´t take it LOL.
Here a selection, not only from ministers and memebers of parliament, but also other officials that were invited.
Have fun watching them!
Already I am looking forward to our dinner today. We are having mussels today, just simply cooked and there will be one or two sauces, and some french bread with herb and garlic butter. Yummie!!!
just have to out today to fetch me fresh french bread, oh and must not forget to buy the new tv program guide for the next two weeks.
Did just a little bit of work in the garden yesterday, had to cut away branches from the ivy, before they will overgrow all. Our dahlia´s still are blooming at the full, gosh, those bulbs were a good buy.
Jan gave one of the frogs in our pond a name yesterday, Napoleon, LOL!
Ever so nice, but I am not sure i will recognize him(or her) later again. All the frogs have a bit different look, but it is hard to keep them apart ROFL.
He also noticed the return of some great tits, they spotted the little feeder I have, now Jan cannot wait till he is well enough to finish the bigger feeder and then we can watch the birdies also from the room.
That´s all for today again
Have a wonderful day and stay safe!
