Astrid & Her Amazing "Le Quatorze Juillet"-Adventure
Then at the end of the day, Astrid grabbed her bag from underneath her desk (it is always ready!) and flew to Nice (France) where the weather is always nice. Astrid was pleasantly surprised by the amount of ice-cream shops and ice-cream flavours out there, among the flavours were:
· Sweetened chestnuts
And much more.
So Astrid immediately went on an icecream-diet of three scoops a day. Now Astrid is back in the UK and has some issues letting this diet go, especially since there, in the past, were hardly any beaches to be seen in Astrid’s area, the beaches are now everywhere to be seen and ice-cream and the beach just go hand in hand for Astrid like a groom and bride and Coleman’s mustard and dripping noses:
Astrid also celebrated her birthday and got about 20 pairs of socks from work. They had played Secret Santa at the office around X-Mas-time last year and Astrid who had never played this game before had, when pulling the strings, thrown in the phrase: “Hint: Astrid wants socks for X-Mas” and had then pulled herself and had bought herself a lovely collection of socks. Astrid’s extraordinary sock-supply now was the “revenge” of Astrid’s work colleagues.
In Nice they had also not forgotten about Astrid’s Quarter Century-Birthday. There was a parade during the day, parties on the street in the evening, and fire-works when it was really dark:

Now how many noisy games can you think of?
