Biting cold

It's a long time ago I heard crackling and breaking sounds when it was freezing. But this evening I heard it.
It's so very cold that the snow disappears from the pavement without salt or anything else.
Dry freezing.

We're still dealing with a kind of flu.
Headaches and nausea are the main symptoms.
The cold is not a big help for those who have to go through it.

Just one week and it's Sinterklaas. That's the december presents event, like christmas presents. But here it's in the night of december 5 to 6.
We drew names and tried to motivate everyone to send their wishes by mail to the whole family.
Those who bought their secret things and managed to get it into the house before this cold weather are lucky.
The rest needs to go shopping tomorrow... and I am one of them. Wooho! Brrrr..

Sinterklaas won't be a huge event this year.
No money.
Just a cup of hot chocolate and a cookie and a small present.

I long back to the years we could buy the kids a lot of extra's.
Those were good years, with those great big eyes in those small faces.
Pure happiness.

Well, I'm happy to have children that appreciate what they get and don't grief about what they don't get.
