Life in the time of Corona – Captains Log: Day 177

House hunting in the Netherlands is a very competitive sport! When a house is advertised you have to phone the same day, and to view it they arrange only a day or two for tut agents to show it to people. So you have to go on the appointed day, in your allocated time slot,Continue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captains Log: Day 177”

Life in the time of Corona – Captains Log: Day 176

I did spend the whole day thinking it must be Thursday, but it turns out it was still Tuesday. I guess it’s better than: This day. That day. Some day. The other day. My day had a couple of highlights however. It started off with a Google Photos memory of a video (weird, I know)Continue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captains Log: Day 176”

Life in the time of Corona – Captains Log: Day 175

Just another manic Monday… I wish it was Sunday… That’s my funday… Alas, just like the song by the Bangles, it wasn’t Sunday and I couldn’t stay in bed. My head was spinning so much that I clean forgot about my music lesson. At least Jeremy said I can make it up another day. BeContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captains Log: Day 175”

When I was a young adult I lived and worked in my home town, East London, in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Mixed in with all the exciting memories of that time, is the apple cake from the Coelocanth CafĂ© at the East London museum. Honestly, I don’t recall visiting the museum more than onceContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 174”

I just love weekends. This morning after a leisurely breakfast with a friend from work I had a chance to go shopping at my kind of candy store. I previously mentioned that I did a sewing course to learn the art of swimsuit making, and now I’m taking it a step further to learn theContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 173”

One weeks are a bit rough. I only had 4 days of working this week. But it feels like I had to complete 7 days of work in the last 4. Some days and weeks just seem to go that way, where every question I have gets answered with more questions. But then, when IContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 172”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 171

I love how technology has such a direct impact on the way we live. Just a few years ago we would do things so differently. Today I spent the whole day working from home, attending meetings, collaborating with colleagues, all through technology. For dinner I cooked a recipe that I’ve seen in a cooking show.Continue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 171”

The Wednesday evening training session isn’t in the gym, but outdoors in a lovely park near my house. I biked there, because I can, and as I was a bit early I did a few loop-di-loops around the park pathways. As it drew closer to the appointed time, I parked my bike near the usualContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 170”

Life in the time of Corona – Captains log: Day 169

1 September is spring day in South Africa, and in my mind I will always think of wearing civvies to school and wishing it was warmer.. The name at least was appropriate, as I had to spring into action. Seemingly the whole world and their dog was looking for me! That is what it feltContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captains log: Day 169”
