Personal Month overview October 2018
"We spend a lot of time enjoying nature with the three of us, we made a long walk in the woods with Leyla, went to the beach and last Sunday when it was freezing cold we walked on the dykes beside our house."
Personal month overview October, a month in which I did a lot, but also forgot to take a lot of pictures haha. But besides that I will still tell you everything about what my October month looked like.
You would almost forget about it, but the weather was really amazing at the beginning of this month. We started the first weekend of October with a personnel party on Friday night at this beautiful lake. The weather was amazing and we spend a lot of time outside. Next we did a fun workshop and ended with a lovely three course menu which I enjoyed very much. The portions were also perfectly fine for me and really delicious as well. Afterwards the dance floor was opened and it was a really nice evening, the only disadvantage was the fact that we had to drive home for 2 hours, so it lasted until 1.30 when I arrived in my bed. Jens had left for the weekend with a few friends and the next day I had to work again, even though it was Saturday. I had to assist children while they were making something, I really liked it but it was tough as well after such a short night. I was so happy when I could lay on the couch and night and I also had the Monday off, so we went to the beach with Leyla which was perfect.
Thursday night was my grandmothers birthday and because I was not going to the family day which we always organize for her birthday I decided to go on her real birthday. Eventually we had a really nice evening, because my cousin that lives in Finland for 2 years was also there with my uncle and also my sister was there so we really had a nice evening. The day after I went to visit my former babysitter, I very much liked seeing her again, but I was also a bit shocked. She has become quite old, forgets more and more and also becomes really deaf which makes it really difficult to have a conversation. She was really happy that I was there and eventually that is why I went to see her. On Saturday I went to a farmer who had hundreds of kilos of organic pumpkins that the supermarkets did not want to have because of some small spots on the peel, so he sold them for 50 cents per pumpkin. So I bought a lot of them and also cooked and baked a lot with them as well, I really love this pumpkins. And while I was nearby Middelburg I decided to take a moment for myself and went to my favorite coffee shop to have a latte macchiato.
On Sundays the weather was really beautiful, sometimes a bit more warm and other times a bit more cold, but all of them were sunny. We spend a lot of time enjoying nature with the three of us, we made a long walk in the woods with Leyla, went to the beach and last Sunday when it was freezing cold we walked on the dykes beside our house. I just love to enjoy nature that way.
Honestly those are my favorite kind of days, the days on which I have nothing planned, don't have to do anything and can just be at home. I had appointments last week on Monday evening and Tuesday evening and I honestly looked forward to being home in my jogging on Wednesday evening all Wednesday haha. Monday my parents and sister came for dinner as a goodbye dinner, because my sister left to Thailand 2 days later for 1 month. We both made a quiche and my parents took care of the starter, so we had a lovely dinner and had much fun together. Tuesday I had a lecture which I went to because of work and which was really interesting as well.
We are also improving our home again. There was a television table/closet against this wall which Jens had made himself, but somehow that one collapsed. And at that moment we diced that we barely watch television ever. At night I am always working on my blog, reading a book or listening to a podcast and Jens does the same. We are always working for ourselves or on ourselves. Of course we do watch movies every now and then, but we do that on our laptop on Netflix for example. And then the wall was empty for a few weeks already and I had already decided that I wanted to make a photo wall up there, but I had not yet started working on it. And when Jens decided to paint our bathroom, the tiles had a color which was at least 100 years old haha, I decided to start with the photo wall. Jens used tile paint by the way for the bath room which turned out really beautiful, also because it is white it looks a lot bigger. And I really hang all these myself and that was for the first time that I did something that handy all by myself haha. And I am actually quite proud of myself and it just looks so nice when you are sitting on the couch.
All by all it was a busy month again with a lot of fun things and also this upcoming month will be really busy. Yesterday I started a training for work which is heavy, I have to visit school twice and besides that study a lot. Next week I will be working one evening until 21.00 and one evening until 22.00, I will be helping my parents with moving to their new house and there are also some extra evenings for work this month. So again a busy month which will probably be over really soon and then it is December already. It really is unbelievable how fast the year went by.
