Yesterday the alarm went off at:
Yes, on a Sunday! Why? Because I am married to a Rolling Stones fan, yesterday was the first concert in five years of the RS and of course DH had to be there in the O2 in London. So off they went, six crazy fans in a rented minivan thru the Chunnel. After the concert they will drive home the same way again, so hopefully by the time you read this post DH will have arrived back again from his 30 (or so) hours concert trip. Madness…. and they will be doing the same thing again this coming Thursday for the second RS concert!
DH’s picture from the O2 yesterday evening:
Of course Whopper can’t tell time so at 4.30 a.m. he refused to wait any longer for his walkies, but just when I stepped outside with Whopper I saw a young man making a quick departure from our drive way in the dark… with the huge amount of house burglaries in our neighbourhood (and an attempted burglary at our house during our summer holiday) he was up to no good I am sure…
This long Sunday gave me an opportunity to go downtown to a few shops (open every Sunday in The Hague), among others I always pop into:
It opened up last summer and I think it is the biggest store of this chain, 4 floors and a restaurant, I love it especially with the Christmas decorations.
To my surprise this well-known butcher (few doors from Riviera Maison) was open on Sunday too , if for sandwiches only:
I grew up with these and it is great that some things stay the same: the classic Dungelmann croquette (on a white bun, with mayonnaise for me, although most people have their croquettes with mustard), really the best croquettes!
My ‘diet’ went out the window, I had two of these!
The Sunday openings at Dungelmann are for a trial period for now until January, so if you are in The Hague on a Sunday (but also any other day), please go!
Back home Whopper spent most of his Sunday in this position, catching up on lost sleep:
For dinner, with DH away – he doen’t like this – I gave my old Magimix a workout and made lasagne for me and DD, I always use this recipe (click), with just one change, I put all the prosciutto in the lasagne, none on top:
Comfort food, great for such a blustery day, yesterday we had a typical November storm here on the coast.
The evening DD and I spent watching the first (double) instalment of the second series of Penoza , a Dutch tv-series I enjoyed a lot last year.
Just heard that DH is near the Dutch border, better take Whopper for a walk now and be ready with a cup of coffee to listen to his stories from last night.
Have a great week,
