A Peek in the Life

Of me!

Because it’s my blog and I can do whatever I want here. Even if that means filling a page with things that probably aren’t very interesting.  So.. what’s going on in my life you ask?

(You didn’t but that’s irrelevant because I’m going to write it down anyway).

Well.. I’ve been at my new job for three months now. I’d describe it as being a school nurse/ weight consultant for kids / mediator for kids & teens when their parents divorce or other crappy events disrupt their lives. I find it pretty meaningful and I really like working with them, so I made the right choice when I switched jobs.

My family and kids are also doing fine. I planned some cool trips: skiing in Germany in February, chasing the sun to Corfu (Greece) in May and Paris for my birthday in March.

Ah Paris. Always a good idea.

Good things, very good things.

I know 2018 is just on the way but I’m already proud that I didn’t succumb in eating and drinking all the December left-overs and stuck to my fitness regime (crossfit twice a week). I’m totally going to expand that regime and add running or swimming. Or not 🙂 .

On the creative front I’m not doing as much as I would’ve liked. I’ve two books I want to read this January: Hollow City and A Conjuring of Light but haven’t started yet. Mainly because I can’t stop watching Mad Men. I’m watching season 7, so the end I near.

Zero writing done so far.

Zero editing done so far.

But I did wrote this blogpost and started a Bullet Journal, so I’ll be fine.

 

And that’s about it for now.

Ciao

In which I Overuse Caps Lock and Repeat Myself

Two more days at work and then I AM FREE.

Yes I know, I have to get back to work eventually but for THIRTY days I AM FREE.

THIRTY FREE DAYS.

I imagine you’re wondering if it’s really necessary to use the caps lock this much but I can assure you: IT IS. Same goes for repeating myself.

Very necessary. (because thirty days).

Sunday we’re leaving for Bretagne and I fully intend to capture the surroundings on my Instagram account. Of course I’m also planning to read books (two of them being: Strange the Dreamer & A Gathering of Shadows) and I’m bringing my laptop and notebook for some writing.

But mostly I’m going to relax, ponder ridiculous story ideas and enjoy time with my family

(Read: try not to worry too much about the kids eating/drinking/sleeping enough and make sure they don’t get stung by creepy insects or jelly fish. I’m probably also going to apply gallons of sunscreen on them).

And after the French break, comes the Spanish one.

Because I’m also going to Fuerteventura for a week of reading books, pondering ideas, writing stuff. And to learn how to surf.

Not bringing the kids, just us.

I hope your summer is radiant like mine.
