Two weeks ago, on a saturday, me went to the Open House day of FC Utrecht. It was loads of fun! Berry bought a new playersshirt (one of the goalie) which is just as blue as my fur! So, when Berry is wearing a red jacket - what she normally does - and me is wearing my red shirt, then we are looking like twins! It is true.
What also was fun was that during the introductions of the players, me was allowed to sit on the business seats. And from there, me could see my seat at the opposite side of the stadium! It was nice to see everything like this! Me applauded loudly for our boys in red and me got a nice flag to wave around. It really was a nice day out.
The football season has started last week, unfortunately FC Utrecht lost from Willem II at the stadium of Willem II. Next saturday they will play in Utrecht, so, me is gonna have loads of fun... and cookies!

Cookie likes to talk about the next letter in the Dutch alfabet, which is the same letter in all western alfabets, but hey... the words are definitely different.
The next letter - obviously - is the letter D, of Dropjes (Liqourice, see previous post about Dutch Treats) ofcourse. Me like the black sweetsalty candy, but sometimes it can be stuck inside a tooth...
Another real Dutch word with a D is Dakpan (things you put on a roof, there actually aren't fryingpans, thats for sure). The roofs of old houses - but new ones in old styles too - are covered in the terracotta coloured pans. It looks lovely. In a storm, they can be blown away though...
D in Dutch also stands voor Dansen (dancing), Disco (a place you can loose a cookie), Dun gesneden (sliced thinly, were still talking about the Dutch) and last but not least Dag vers (daily fresh), something everybody loves.
Well, Cookie also loves the D of Dopen (dipping) which is very popular to do with cookies. For example you dip (doopt) them in milk... yum... Grown-ups like to dip their cookies also in tea or coffee. It is fun to watch: sometimes half of the cookie stays behind in the drink, because it became to soft! You should see them struggle to get the soft, wet cookie in their mouth, before it breaks of! Loads of fun.
Cookie likes to dip his chocolate chip cookies in milk... YUM!
