Byebye Sinterklaas, hello snow

Sunday, December 7th, 2008

Yesterday’s Sinterklaas celebration was one to remember, again! Everyone got a shitload of presents, some great and funny rhymes and enough sugar treats for the remainder of 2008. 😉

After a short night we had to get up to catch the plane back to Norway, taking all the presents and some of the vacation stuff that I couldn’t take last week…AND of course my new guitar + amplifier! Quite a lot to take, and I was lucky to receive my Flying Blue Gold Wing status last week, which allows me 30kg luggage instead of the standard 20kg. My handluggage still was way too much (trolley, guitar and laptop bag), I don’t know if it was the fact that the KLM-staff couldn’t see my tired face behind the bags, or they just thought I was too tall for economy; I got upgraded to business-class!! Thank you KLM!! 😉 Even though normally couldn’t care less on a short flight like AMS-OSL, the extra ‘hand luggage’ allowance in bizz came in handy this time.

Back home, I could pick up my favorite hobby; clearing the area in front of the house from 20cm snow. It wasn’t too bad this time; with the white snow, the blue skies and the sun outside…it surely was BE-AU-TI-FUL!
