Late afternoon light in the palm house at Hortus Botanicus.
This thing was dropping off 1400 people in matching cagoules this afternoon after their Christmas cruise around the Iberian peninsula.
I got Victoria some work by @rosadeweerd from @dewerkwinkel for Christmas.
Today we took delivery of our new gold framed four poster bed made for us by the folks at @robuustamsterdam and it is looking super sharp in the guest room.

One of the gifts of free building is the combinations of colour and material that occur when neighbouring homes are strikingly different.
You could grow a lot of tomatoes in there.
This house reminds me of the house from that episode of Black Mirror with the terrifying killer robot dogs.

Taking a loop around Steigereiland-Noord.
The low frontages on Lisdoddelaan make the street feel really wide and the sky huge by Amsterdam standards.

Riding from Diemen to Ijburg over the Uyllanderbrug.
Every lounge needs a bit of seventies nan-glam lighting.
Pretty sure I had far fewer grey hairs than this before the baby was born.
Uncle Poot has taken to hanging out near the bedroom where his new housemate is sleeping.
Missed the memo on late 80s sportswear.
Queuing up with the cruise boat tourists for some chocolate cookies.
The neighbourhood swimming spot looking particularly tempting this morning.
Day one of parental leave with this babe.
After years of waiting for a Braun SK5 in good condition to appear on eBay, I finally found one.

For a good half hour on Wednesday night I was strongly considering popping to Tokyo for the weekend to escape the meteorological and culinary malaise of winter in Amsterdam.
Almere was not first in line when looks were being given out to Dutch towns.
Solid work, Amsterdam.
