After we adopted our first cat, Em, we assumed we would stay a single-cat family. After all, Em had been classified by the animal shelter as a loner cat: she did not get along with other cats. But she changed when she started to trust us. Or rather: when she started to trust me, because she was already devoted to my guy. She enjoyed her life with us, but I felt like she was, well: lonely. We took a chance and decided to find her a friend. Continue reading “The cat who needed cats”
We, the humans in the household, met years ago through the power of the internet. It took us a couple of years to work out who would be moving where, because we were fed up with the long distance relationship thing. You see, I’m Dutch and he … well, he is British. He chose to move to The Netherlands for me. And though we have no problem, Brexit is pushing us to do something we never needed to think about.Continue reading “What Brexit means for us”
We have two cats and a dog, as you know. And like most cats, ours are happy to stay in and around the house. But our chihuahua is different: he is an adventurous spirit! He loved to travel and go to new places. So when we decided we needed some time away from work, the house, everything, we knew we had to take Chi along with us. Off to Cologne, a city in Germany!Continue reading “Taking the Dog to Cologne, Germany”
We have been playing a lot of games again lately. And one of our new, or rekindled, passions is Dungeons and Dragons. That is why my next update in the shop will probably be related to fantasy, dragons, elves and so on.Continue reading “Designs in progress: Dragons and elves”
Planning my day in the morning always gives me a good feeling about the time I have available. How to plan your day is something I was taught in school, believe it or not. Or at least: I learned how to plan my way through lessons and homework, even if it was not a subject I had to study for. Actually, side note: they totally should teach planning in secondary school at least. Learning how to spend your time and how to study, is a skill will help you. And I would not be writing this article if I didn’t have some ideas for you on how to make the most of your day. By planning well!

Keeping track of what you want to finish on a day can be very easy. Just make a to-do list, right? Then just do your chores and go to your appointments and you’re done and organised. But working and studying from home means: lots of distractions. I can find 100 things to do that are not on my to-do list, that I am sure I can make time for. In the evening is when I realise I haven’t made a dent in my actual to-do list. So I did the obvious thing and made an extra sheet for my planner. And it works so well for me, that I decided to share the free day planner sheet with you.
I was born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I still can get lost in the city centre, but I usually am able to find my favourite places. Amsterdam is not that big. You end up where you want to go if you circle around long enough. When you live in a city that is also a tourist attraction, you end up liking the places tourists rarely go to. So what are my favourite places in Amsterdam?
