We were up at the beach today and were slighty alarmend to see all this green foamy stuff on the shore. It looked like green foamy washing up liquid. Anyone know what it is and more importantly if it's harmful?

It is Mother's Day this weekend in Holland judging by all the flowers and presents in the shops, but do they celebrate Father's Day as well, if so, is it the same day as the UK.

Hi, I have to be in Holland for a week seminar in July with a view to moving here. I have 2 kids and was wondering if there are any summer holiday camps they could attend while I'm here. I beleive most Dutch kids speak some English but if it's Dutch speaking not a problem. Have a nice Day

We experienced our first Queen's Day today, my first impression was opening the front door and being over whelmed by the the number of flags that were hanging outside, in fact we were the only one's in the street who didn't have one out so they must know we are non dutchies? It was a really family day we especially enjoyed the morning and went up to the village to see the kids selling all their toys and games, this afternoon we went up to The Hague and had a few rides on the fair - quite a few drunk people but harmless, we felt very safe in fact. The weather could've been better. Just wanted to say that it was a really nice day, and another holiday tomorrow as well, what could be better! VB

Which other International are there in The Hague? The ISH where I want to send my children is full and I have heard so many bad things about the British School, in fact when we looked round the smaller one, a parent (I think it was) came out in tears saying 'what ever you do don't send your children there!' So not sure what's going on there. It seems like a bit of a limited choice.

As of 19th April there are flyers in varoius shops such as V&D, Albert Heijn offering discounts on entrance fees to many of the events happening on Queen's Day, in and around the Hague. It's a great day with a party atmosphere! Let's hope the sun shines this year!

Whilst doing a bit of research on Pregnancy i came across something that said we should be careful what skin products such as moisturisers to use when pregnant. I am using all the some products I did before I was pregnant, and am now panicking in case I have done some damage to the baby.

I need to renew my son's passport before June, do I have to do it from here in Holland? Does anyone have any idea how long it takes or can I take it and get it done at the Embassy in The Hague?

My next door neighbour is Dutch and their son seems to have been at University for ever, well at least 6 years, he must be about 27 now, how long do they study for? I think she said he was doing pharmacy studies.

I have swimming lessons in Wassenaar but they seem to be expensive and taking a long time. Anyone have any experience of other lessons locally?

Has anyone heard of a book called 'How to get your baby to sleep through the night'. I have read about it somewhere and wondered if I might be able to buy it here somewhere. I have a 5 month old and he was screaming for most of the night, I need some tips.
