Blimey! it is already Monday 28 December.
Blimey it is already Monday 28 December, doesn’t time go by quickly, guess it always did, just there were times when it seemed so very slow.
This is when you are getting to understand how things work; this is when you did not know that every year the big events happen at the same time.
Like birthdays and Christmas and New Year and of course Easter and mid summer, and in Trinidad Divalli and other festivals.
And once you have experienced these events several times, you start to remember them and you start to create a schedule or map for your reference.
After awhile when you get older, you pretty much know when things will happen and time seems to speed up.
It of course just passes at the same speed as it always did and always will it is just my perception is different at 8 than it was at age 8.
It has been a bright, cold day today, according to the weather forecast it is set to get very much colder.
We could have snow and ice for the New Year, that is when we usually get it here and not before Christmas like this year.
In 1981, it was a very cold winter, my first here in Amsterdam; I could not work out how come there were so many people wearing mountaineering boots in such a flat country.
When it got cold I totally understood and quickly got a pair of stout climbing boots, which kept my feet warm.
It snowed before Christmas in 1981 and it stayed until end of February, so I really did need those stout walking boots.
Still need warm footgear just not mountaineering boots, with thick sole just ones with a thick lining.
Going to post this and enjoy watching the dogs lying peacefully in their beds and the sound of a few children playing outside.
It is 4.30 pm and it is still light which is lovely.
