Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 320

Some days are just harder than others. Today was such a day. I was feeling homesick all day. Its been over a year since I’ve seen my family and I miss them. I have made peace with the fact that I will be able to travel when it is time, but even so, I stillContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 320”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 336

Valentines day. When I was a kid, at school you could order something, a card or a rose or candy, to be delivered anonymously to your crush. I always thought what’s the point of anonymity? I still don’t know. Since then I’ve lived through a few valentines days and there has been some interesting experiences.Continue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 336”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 335

It continues to stay cold, but since no new snow is falling its all turning into ice! This is a bit scary when I am out for a walk with Rufus, but it is also quite cool (see what I did there) to see all the ponds and canals frozen over! The Dutch once againContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 335”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 329

The snow continued to fall today, making for some pretty impressive scenery. Canals are starting to freeze over, and I saw a couple of birds make a surprise landing on the ice… Rufus is settling in and seems to like stealing socks and slippers. I also bought my first tulips for the new year! IContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 329”

My name is on the door! It’s been a few years since I sold my first apartment. Since then a lot of water has run into the sea. I have lived in many cities and in different continents. I’ve traveled to some amazing places and done some things I never thought possible (hello surfing!) andContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 324”

If there’s one thing about a house, it’s that it’s always more work than you think. After receiving my beautiful new flooring, we took out some of the old stuff, only to notice that we need to replace the underfloor too! What with the lockdown and the click and collect policies for hardware stores, thisContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 320”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 318

Today my new family member arrived…. Welcome Rufus! After a bit of negotiation and all sorts of nail-biting action, he finally boarded the bus in Lithuania that would bring him home to me. The drivers were a couple of angels who were driving a van all the way to unite ex-rescue pets with their lovingContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 318”

Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 314

As of yesterday there is a curfew in place in the Netherlands. To be honest, aside from the fact that I have to think about ordering takeaways earlier, it doesn’t really affect me all that much. And perhaps the fact that I found the grocery shops much quieter at night, while the shelves are gettingContinue reading “Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 314”
