Still having rather good weather, with temperatures around 19-20-21C, sometimes a bit cloudy, but almost no rain, just a few drops.
For the time of year still very nice.
This week on Tuesday we had the "Prinsjesdag"(Prince's day) again, which is the official opening parliamentary year Then the Budget papers are presented to the Members of parliament, and the King has his Kings's speech(mostly written For him, bu the ministers).
But it is always a special day here, with the ride of the King and Queen in normally the Golden Coach , but this year in the Glass-coach.
The Golden coach will be restaured, and it will take a few years, so now the had the ride in the other one Also a very beautiful coach.
Naturally everybody is curious about our queen Maxima's dress and this year she had again an awesome one.
Also funny to watch the members of parliament, and invited guests,specially the women, because it is kind of tradition, that they wear hats that day. Not everybody does this, but many do and well, some have great ones, other had no taste at all LOL.
We have a member of parliament, who is leader of the Party for the Animals(veryconcerned about animal welfare and nature )and she always has something special and often tries to make a statement with it. Her name is Marianne Thieme and this year she wanted to express, that there are still to little women in government and parliament and on important posts(government as well as business world).
Today the prime ministers will answer to several questions asked. So that are two long days in parliament.
You might say that it is going a tiny little bit better with our country again after that horrble world wide crisis, but still there are a lot of things that could do much better Economy isn;t real high yet, still we have a large unemployment figure, the health care is less and less, too may cuts in money and I am not convinced that it was a good move several years ago to make it commercial and give it to health insurances companies. We have to cope with too little payable houses or appartments, and many more things aren;t as well as they were or as they could be.
It will be interesting to see how people will vote next year. Just hope they will not vote out of misery to the extreem right party, because they have a lot of remarks that things aren;t good, but they don;t have any solutions neither. So this kind of party in government will not make our country better at all.
Okay, I will finish now, soon on tv will be the second day of parliament talks, most of it as I said the "answers"of our prime minister( and I am sure many of the leaders of the different parties will have more questions and remarks during his talk LOL), so sometimes it is even funny!
I have a kit for you today, named it Lovely Days.
Take care and have a wonderful day!
