Living in The Netherlands

Wow, that is quite a big title for a blog post. But there are some things I like to share about living in The Netherlands. My guy, as you may know, is British. Having a partner that comes from a different country helped me to look at the country I am living in with new eyes. Almost. You know: things I take for granted are suddenly strange, because I can't really explain why it is normal for me! Eating very old cheese is normal. I love cheese that has ripened for 2 years! I also love cheese wi...

My dog is awesome

It's a pretty bold statement, but my dog is really awesome. When I was thinking about getting a puppy, we had many talks about what kind of dog we wanted and how we would raise him. We knew that there was a chance that owning a dog, with all the responsibilities that come with it, would be more work or harder or just not as fun as we thought. But after nearly two years I can only say: my dog - our dog - is just awesome. How did we get so lucky to have him? When you decide to get a dog, you ha...

How our dog and cats live together

Of course cats and dogs can get along! True, strange dogs don't trust cats they don't know. Cats are inclined to run away from loud dogs when they meet them outside. Our cats don't trust strange dogs, but will happily let our dog snuggle up to them. They are also happy with visiting dogs, as long as they are well-behaved in their eyes. How did we manage to make the cats accept our dog? Both our cats are rescue cats from a local shelter. We picked them up separately. First we got our girl, who...

Dragon clip art

Printable vacation planner pages to organise your trip

Freebie printable vacation planner
Going on vacation is fun! For us the best way to relax is to gather as much information as we can on the place we want to go to and then roughly plan what we want to do. We used to just use a notebook and write down restaurants we wanted to try out, or shops we wanted to visit and of course the main sights of the city we were going to see. This year we took a Happy Planner with printable vacation planner pages we designed ourselves. They're pretty focussed on what we expect to do on a vacation, ...
