That was Scoop who wandered into the room and saw me at the computer.
When I explained that I was going to write a blog post, she asked what it was going to be about. I told her that I didn’t know (this is often the case when I start a blog post) (and sometimes when I finish one too) and asked for suggestions.
“Something about Christmas!” she replied, instantly.
Well, ok then. Her wish, my command and all that:
There’s Aalsmeer (just south of Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam) (literally translated “Eel Lake”) Brandweer (it’s Dutch for “Fire Station”, in case you hadn’t guessed) and their interpretation of the best Christmas song ever (don’t @ me).
Lovely. The best part being that they didn’t aurally torture us for more than 62 seconds.
Tomorrow: possibly more offspring-suggested blog topicary. Or possibly not.
