April is always such a lovely month.
The sun starts shining, the blanket of clouds break up and there’s even days of a nearly perfect blue sky. Such a joy!
Oh, and have you seen the blossoming trees? So unbelievably beautiful! To me that’s the moment that Spring really starts.
And now I’m waiting for the tree in front of my window to grow it’s leaves. I’ve been wanting to see it evolve for the past two years now, but both times I happened to be on holiday exactly the week that it decided to give birth to those pretty new leaves.
With patience I’ve gone through April, but I really enjoyed the weather. Although the last weeks of April it got pretty cold here, it even snowed in some places. Bizarre!
Besides enjoying nature, I’ve also worked hard at my internship and on my webshop. Three new buntings are added: denim coloured bunting, ochre yellow coloured bunting and new baby girl bunting with three colours!
This was my April:
Hmm, March was a pretty effective month I think.
I especially focussed on the shop: all the item information and visuals have been updated, I have worked on marketing and today and Saturday two new banners will be added to the shop.
Besides that there was my internship that kept going, although I couldn’t do that many practical things for that.
And we had a festivity: my 29th birthday! This was during the Easter weekend, so it was a nice combination meeting family and friends and being grateful. A time to relax and fun, to re-energise and enjoy the little signs of Spring making it’s way here.
All together March was a good month and here’s some pictures that proof it. 🙂 (more…)
February, oh February. What have you done to me.
This month I started my final internship for my studies and that means working fulltime…
So my life has gone from one and a half month of no obligations, to quite busy from my point of view. Working all day and after that I have two nights a week filled with activities of the student society and when I get home I have a ferret to take care of.
It’s been a bit overwhelming last month, but I guess I’ll get used to it. Sometime…
And on top of that I got the flu during the last 9 days of the month… It’s not fair.
Anyways, it’s been a chaotic month so there hasn’t been much going on besides that. But what I can show you, I will. Among which is my newest hobby.
January was a month of transitioning.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll probably know: I moved back home to The Netherlands after having an amazing experience in Stockholm.
I came back in the middle of the month, so there were still two lovely weeks in Sweden left. I visited some museums, walked around the city and experienced real cold weather. The last week and a half it has been around -16 degrees Celcius. Brrrrr…
After saying goodbye to my friends from the church I visited, it was time to pack everything up and go back.
Coming home was so nice, seeing my family again and finally hugging Mexy after 5 months. But it took only half a day or so for everything to feel normal again. Soon it seemed to me like I just woke up from the best of dreams. But luckily I have my parents, sister and friend who can pinch me and tell that I really lived there.
I don’t really have pictures of when I got back, but these are the ones from my last days in Stockholm.
After looking back at 2015 last week, it’s now time for the diary of December.
December was the month of finishing my classes and handing in the final essay assignments. Quite some stress, but I’m glad to say that I finished it perfectly in time and I have passed all my classes! High Five & Happy Dance!
It was also a very fun month, because my Dutch friend Siglinde came to visit Stockholm for a few days and I went north to Lulea with my South-African friend Ancia. Both special and joyful events and I’ll show you all of it in pictures below.
