A visit to the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (less than 10 minutes walk from my house..so nice) is reopened after almost 8 years (!) of renovations. Beautiful building, exciting exhibitions. In the ground floor I got completely excited from the exhibition and the display about Dutch design. In one of the rooms were lots of hidden articles in big drawers full of wonderful, inspiring objects – jewellery, toys, graphic,furniture, textile, … In the Second floor, contemporary art- again- great exhibitions. All together it was worth waiting for. Take your time there -its big! and one warning: stay away from the restaurant/cafe (over priced,bad service).

Win admiration in five simple steps

Win the admiration of your child classmate mothers in five simple steps: 1.  Make an appointment in the weekend with your child classmate. Better with more than one child (in ordered to maximize the admiration factor). 2.  Make sure that it’s going to be the cloudiest, stormy, rainy day of the week, and you are at stuck at home with a few six years old girls and a baby. 3.  After pulling hairs, sit and read all mails you never look at on regular days. 4. Find the  golden newsletter, you normally don’t look at: cooking workshop for children with super title: “Yakki vegetables: carrot” (Getverderrie Groente: de Wortel)  taking place in a children book shop (!) in your neighborhood. 5. After all been finished, sit at home and enjoy the admiration of the (lovely) mothers…;-) and this three little mouses Romi made for dinner …:-)
