Beginning Afresh, For The Fourth Time

Sunday Dec 10th –

First Sunday preparations from in our own home and I’m pleased to say a little talk at the parents the night before, inspired Mike to re-step up to the plate of Sunday morning breakfast making πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ³


Something he had done for a month or two at the beginning of our marriage until he just…didn’t 😜

But his breakfast was good, the sunrise pretty from our kitchen window and the taxi service prompt πŸ˜‰


Mother and father were giving us a ride 😜
Are we with them too much post move?? I think not, β€˜β€˜tis only kind to break them of us easilyπŸ˜‰ Continue reading “Beginning Afresh, For The Fourth Time”

Who, What, When, Where, Why?

Wednesday March 1st –

We decided to go exploring for a little bit after we finished our morning coffee and mango.

There was a restaurant that had been catching Mike and my eye in Velp but we had yet to try it so Mom and I planned to end up there after some other walking and shop browsing.

Velp is about a 15 minute walk from the apartment and the sun was actually shining so that was a nice bonus β˜€οΈ

We meandered down a few streets, into a couple of shops and then to the little restaurant called ‘La Maison Du Velp ‘ we went.
It’s a tad daunting entering a busy little place, seeing no type of sign about seating and not knowing if anyone is telling you what to do or not because it would be said in Dutch πŸ™ˆ
We seen a waiter and asked if we should sit wherever and he said yes so we chose for the less crowded, upstairs.

Overlooking the diners below, we started off with drinks and I began the task of menu translating since they didn’t have any English ones 😬

Anything fishy (literally) was easily spotted and knocked off the choosing list.
After that it got a tad trickier but enough hopefully accurate guessing and narrowing down left us with two choices.

Perpetually Needing Naps

Tuesday Feb 7th –

We had gotten flowers the evening before at the grocery store and Zoe had arranged them for me.

They were my mornings view whilst sipping my ‘alone time’ coffee.

Once we were all up, the house got a little tidying and then a snack was made.

A cheesecake was prepared, dishes done and a small nap taken before baking the cheesecake thing so that the apartment would smell good for the first apartment viewing.

We left in anticipation of hearing what our first viewing would hold, but our time was passed pleasantly, enjoying cake, coffee and conversation with the grandparents 😊

Opa showed us a teensy tiny, little bitty Bible😳 Continue reading “Perpetually Needing Naps”

An Alarmingly Dull Day

Monday Nov 7th –



By Monday I thought my little bit of remaining head cold would be gone but instead it was back stronger πŸ™„

That was sad but a satisfying part of waking up was going to the kitchen and just pressing the button to start the coffee brewing because I prepared it all the night before πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Reading, writing, drawing and blogging, perfect ways to ease into a dreary morning.

Though said morning was interrupted by sirens?? Continue reading “An Alarmingly Dull Day”

Back To Real Life… Disco Dipped Style

Tuesday Sept 13th –

No rushed morning of getting ready, packing up and signing out of a hotel, it was a grand trip but it’s also much nicer to enjoy a morning in ‘kind of’ your own room.

Mike had work and unloading the car duty, I had Jemstory to start catching up on as well as unpacking.

Lunch was some quickly prepared and eaten fresh pasta we had brought back with us from Italy and then into Arnhem we went to take Savannah shopping.
