3 random favorites. Three things you’re really liking, the quirkier the better!

This woman and her youtube lessons:

This book (post to follow):


And I’m just in general very appreciative of living where I do. Need to take the time to do that as well. Don’t underestimate the (stability of) slow-moving representative politics that’s not in the hands of one person….


3 things I did this week

This post is part of the Endless Blog Challenge.

3 things I did this week. Self-explanatory, surely?

  • Worked from home ( = better coffee, and no annoying questions):


  • Looked at two houses. I won’t post pictures, because I’m not crazy, but we’ll go back and see the second one – hopefully next week!
  • Rediscovered audiobooks on Storytel. I can like, read and play WoW at the same time?! Why have I not thought of this before?

I hate buses

So, today – just before rush hour – , someone jumped in front of a train at one of the bigger train stations in the country. Granted it is sad that someone is in a situation where that seems to be the best thing to do, but let’s also look at how this specific choice affects complete strangers. For 3,5 hours, there were no trains past Leiden station. Normally, that’s around 30 trains an hour? (Guessing, it might be more but is certainly not less.) 30 rush-hour-busy trains. Replacement buses you say? Wait, what country do you think we live in? That’s simply not possible on such short notice, and frankly, they’d just get stuck in traffic anyway.

This is not a post trying to get sympathy (I got home, didn’t I?). I just think you’d have to have angelic patience not to be just a bit pissed off.

In other news, were going to look at 2 houses tomorrow. Maybe a move is on the horizon? At least I won’t have train problems then.

I was telling myself I wouldn’t write this post because “no one cares”, but here it goes. Sorry! Work was crazy and then I got the flu. Back at work today, but now it’s year-end craziness until Friday, when I fly to Sweden for a week. Sorry little blog. I still like you, and I’ll be back, but I guess that’ll be in January.

Take care and try to enjoy the last weeks of this year everyone 🙂

4 things in my online cart

4 things in my online cart. I’m assuming that at any point in time, most of us have things lying about in online carts. Doesn’t have to be the same cart, a variation of carts will do!

But of course. The only one where I have that many items pending is by our friends at Paula’s Choice:

What can I say – I’m like “wantwantwant” until I see the total price, then I quickly close the tab. Maybe at some point!

Well, this was quite interesting. All my shares are from Instagram, and people that are in the public sphere (I’m not gonna share my friends’ baby pictures… which, YES, I click like on almost all of). I was also going to use the “embed” function of Insta, but it looks like crap. Obviously I’m doing something wrong. Lisa? 😛
