A Bit to Normal Life-Throwback Tuesday #59

a bit to normal life

Last week we did some things that looked like we are getting a bit to normal life again. We have to at some point don’t we? It was a bit of a weird week. I thought I would have a quiet one and in the end it wasn’t. I didn’t have a single appointment all week. So during the day I was busy with working out, blogging and cleaning. I cleaned and tidied the rest of the wardrobes. Put everything I wanted to sell on Vinted, I’ve already sold a lot again. Every time I wanted to read in the garden in the afternoon, I just sat for 5 minutes and then it started to rain.

A busy but good week

Gerben went into a hotel on Wednesday because he had a breakdown while on his way home. ( well, not Gerben had a breakdown of course, but a company he had to go to) To the other side of the country, of course. The Netherlands is not that big, but it was still a 2 hour drive. Thursday night I was just sitting on the couch after dinner, well, I kind of collapsed when Paul and Celina came over. (friends) Actually, we hadn’t spoken to them for far too long and it was very nice to have a chat and catch up. Gerben received a phone call about a malfunction at 3 am, so he had to go. When I got up I was still so tired, because of the broken night.

Meeting up with family-back to normal life

On Saturday we had lunch with my in-laws because of my father-in-law’s birthday and their 60th wedding anniversary. We hadn’t seen many of them for a year either. The weather was very lovely so we were able to sit outside. It was a very pleasant day and we had a delicious meal. And my in-laws loved it!

In the evening we went to friends and played Catan. That was also a year and a half ago that we played boardgames with them. I had so much fun that I didn’t even mind that I didn’t win a single game! ( next time I will catch up with that!!)On Sunday we first had a nice long breakfast, then worked out and actually didn’t do much else. Just took it easy a bit. Went nowhere. In the evening we ate at home and watched Cardinal. Are you having a bit to normal life again?

Have a nice week everyone!

    That sounds like a lovely week! You look GREAT in shorts. My husband travels all the time for work and can work odd hours too and I’m always amazed at how much it throws of my own sleep schedule.

      Indeed, even if he sleeps in a hotel, I just can’t sleep!

    I am glad you had a nice week! Not sure what the fall and winter will bring here so trying to enjoy the moments. I’ve been playing some forgotten boardgames with the boys lately and hopefully we will continue when they go back to school (tomorrow!).

    Apart from Gerben being called away for a breakdown – and the resulting broken night – it sounds like you had a lovely week. Meeting up with your in-laws and friends must be wonderful after all that time. A little slice of normal life indeed. Like you said, we have to make a return to some kind of normal at one point, even if it still feels weird at times.
    Loving the outfit you wore for your family day. Both that funky skirt and that crisp white blouse are absolutely gorgeous. xxx

    Sounds like a lovely week (mostly) Yes there is a sense of life returning to normal. Still not ready for large gatherings though.

    Happy birthday/anniversary to your inlaws! How lovely to see them again! You look fabulous in that pink mod skirt, Nancy – the big sleeves are so awesome.

      Yes it was a joyful day! Never heard of it! WE always say at the end of the evening, or actually early morning, next time we play Risk. But we always end up playing Cartan!

    You always post the tastiest food photos!! I am excited for an in person year at my kids school without any virtual planned, so that is def. a little more back to normal for us!! You look amazing in those shorts! My husband used to travel with his old job almost every other week and a lot of the time he’d leave at 4 a.m.! It did disrupt my sleep and week!

    First of all, I am loving your outfits in denim, Nancy! Those jeans are so cute on you and I really like you in denim shorts, too! I love when dragonflies come hovering around and butterflies always make me smile! I laughed about your “broken night” with Gerben’s emergency work call but only because I can relate…my last two nights have been broken by a dying battery in a smoke detector! It woke me two nights ago and I replaced the battery but the new battery must have been kind of old because it woke me again last night with its incessant dead battery chirping warning! Grrr. Cheers to unbroken nights in the future!
