Just another manic Monday. I have loads to do and too little time to do it! Be kind. Stay safe.
Marinus came to help me with the packing, and I am so thankful. It feels like the more things I pack in boxes, the more it looks like nothing is packed yet! He helped me create some order in the midst of the chaos and it is starting to look like I’m moving soon. BeContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 257”
In the summer it’s possible to go for a walk with your friends, keep your 1.5m distance, and enjoy the lovely weather. However, as things turn colder it also gets more grim. I met a work friend for coffee. We have a little tradition of trying out different bakeries in search of the best croissant,Continue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 256”
Today, for the first time in a long while, I made my deadline with a few hours to spare. It is an unusual feeling but a good one. Of course I still have many things to do, because when you focus to get stuff done, it’s unavoidable that some stuff will not get your attention.Continue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 255”
Today was a busy work day, but also good. I managed to get some tasks done, even ahead of schedule. I managed to talk to colleagues about work things and future things and life things. I even went for a walk over my lunch break to get some milk and saw a construction guy, withContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 254”
I saw a TV advert that looks like it was made in South Africa. A bit of the outdoor scene looks like the spot in Culemborg in Cape Town near my first job in that city, and even the actors looked more South African than Dutch. I didn’t have the sound on, but I imagineContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 253”
The Internet is amazing and a little bit scary. Over the last week I’ve been receiving reminders of pictures that I’ve taken around this time in the last few years. Be kind. Stay safe.
In todays guitar lesson I learnt to play the blues. I remember in one of my first lessons we also dabbled in it, but I’m happy to report that since that day a lot has improved. As with many things in life, the more you know the more you realise how much you don’t know.Continue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 251”
Part of the holiday season is gift giving and today we went shopping for Sinterklaas presents. Different people shared their lists of wishes and armed with this information we went to see what we can find. It is so lovely to see the lovely things in the shops, and to imagine how the receiver willContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 250”
I started packing and I can’t remember if I was ever this excited about moving. Possibly 10 years ago, when I was moving into my first “own” place. Although I have to admit my parents helped a lot with the logistics at the time. Aside from packing however, I also had to get a bitContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 249”
