Playing Catch-ups!

I don’t mean to brag (warning; bragging ahead) but we have been busy! I have so many things I want to tell you which I haven’t had the time or energy to get around to! So instead of in depth posts about everything, I’m going to do one giant catch up post. And lucky you, you’re reading it right now!

First I shall finish off telling you how amazing Perth was! We went out to the desert (in the pouring, flooding, rain) and visited the Pinnacles! Would you like to know more?

Weekend Meditation

I’m sitting at my desk. It’s as good a place as any to be sitting, and begin this blog post. But I haven’t a clue what to write about. I’ve been reading this weekend’s Weekend Meditation over at the Kitchen, and ruminating on my own mediations for what the previous week has held, the up coming week has in store, and where I am at right now in my life.

It’s Summer. I’ve been busy revelling in it. Being outside. Just being in nature, which for me, in Amsterdam, means the park.

New Years Day

I still find it odd that fireworks are available for general public use.

Though at least in Amsterdam this year, they did much less damage than last year. The news supposed that the rain had kept things here quiet this year. Would you like to know more?


It is rather beautiful to awaken on a bright crisp Sunday morning and realise that there was significant snowfall the previous night.

It was a day for families to be out in Vondel Park, reveling in the rare sunshine to build snowmen,

and this guy (and all the others out running) to make me feel completely slack in my fitness routine!

It was a glorious day, and a wonderful start to the week after a fairly quiet and tame weekend.
