A New Arrival

Our nearest neighbours, Herman and José are currently celebrating (and having sleepless nights) because José gave birth to their second child last Tuesday. Her name is Linde.

Yesterday, as is traditional around these parts, we, the neighbours, assembled to erect a stork in the garden to proclaim the arrival of a baby.


Because Linde is a girl, Martin added the princess dress to indicate the fact. He also decorated the entrance to the cattle barn…


The text reads Welkom, Linde, in de Buurt (Welcome, Linde, into the Neighbourhood).

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
