I have been having súch a good time!!!! If I could make my blog any more shiny than it already is I would! It has been seriously freezing here for weeks! So all the ice rings are open, and the large pond in front of my house is frozen too.
The waterpipes in the stables have been frozen, so has the watertrough in the meadow, so now the horses will have to be given their water in buckets. You know, animals can’t talk, at least not with language, but they can make só very clear what they want!
The trough is empty,
so: no water,
I want water,
Do something about it!
Ah, excellent! Yummieeee!
So, as everybody’s skating, and I haven’t got any skates since long time…. I decided I would treat myself to a pair of new skates! And I got the perfect ones! Speedskates, as I like them best to skate on, but fairly low, because that’s easier, and I am pretty grotty at skating, and hardboots! Excellent for my ankle! They are sóóóó cool! So easy to skate with! And you don’t get such cold feet in them!
I love my new skates!
I had so much fun yesterday and today! Today two really nice ladies have put up a ”Koek en Zopie” stand, So nice! For a few cents they ”sold” hot chocolate, ”koek” peasoup (zopie), tea, and ”kwast”: hot lemony lemonade! I put ”sold” into inverted comma’s, because it was so cheap it must have cost them! 🙂
The secret is to dress up warmly! In many, many layers, topped of with a serious coat! And if you stop skating and get cold, you can have something warm to drink! Here you see me with my cup of ”kwast” 😀
