Hello everyone. I am back again with Throwback Tuesday. Back to normal life! I started blogging again last week, after two weeks of vacation, but last Tuesday we of course had The Good Buy/Good -Bye Book! Do you like to participate next month? The theme is Camo! Read in the post how you can join us.
We had a wonderful holiday. Different, but very nice, very relaxed. Of course we missed England terribly, but what can you do about it? I have kept you informed on Instagram Stories.
A vacation in own country
The holiday started with my birthday on August 31st. Gerben and I went shopping in Den Bosch for a day. Actually I have only been in Zara. But it was quite successful. Shopping doesn’t really feel good, I must say. To many people. But we had a delicious lunch and went to the cathedral. To our surprise, it was beautiful. Nothing can beat the Welsh cathedral, but this one came close. And in the evening we ate sushi in Arnhem. A Great start!
We went to Friesland with friends for a few nights and spend a night at my sister and brother-in-law in Giethoorn. I give you the links to both places to get a impression. And we also barbequed a lot. Just the two of us. And it was not always nice warm, in the evening it cools down quite quickly, but a poncho helped! And a bottle of rose too!
But it’s time to get back to normal life
Anyway, normal life has started again and I had a busy week last week. Monday and Tuesday were full of blogging, reading and answering emails, etc. Wednesday morning I had the 6 minute walk test. That’s a test for the lung transplant list. You then have to walk as much as you can in 6 minutes.
Well I can tell you that after 2 minutes I already think, pfff I already am out of breath, and after 6 minutes I can almost get on a respirator! But the test was good, I walked 420 meters! As for a healthy person, my age weight and length, should walk 580.
On Wednesday afternoon I actually had an appointment in the hospital to have a blood sample taken and an ultrasound of the liver, my disease is actually a liver disease. But it still didn’t feel safe to go to the hospital so I postponed that again. Denise and I went cycling and had lunch. We cycled 53 kilometers (because Denise didn’t know the way, lol). Working out on Thursday, Tuesday and Monday too of course, and in the afternoon to the beautician.
Friday I had a appointment with the hairdresser and the nail stylist, so I was ready for the weekend! Gerben was in a hotel all week for his work and then I have to do a lot, for me, in the evening. Like sweeping the floor, cleaning the cat litter box, watering the hanging baskets. Those tasks are, above my own tasks, a bit to much.
So I was almost exhausted when he got home again. That was not back to normal life again. Let me tell you that, we try to avoid that Gerben stays in a hotel.
Saturday and Sunday we bbq ed again in the evening. That must have been almost the last time of the year. Because this week our weather will change. In any case, we enjoyed a very nice Indian summer. Also cycled a few hours on Sunday and worked out on Saturday. So I have been exercising all week. Is also a bit necessary after such a holiday! It’s really necessary to go back to normal life again!
Hope you enjoyed reading the back to normal life post and wishing you a great day!
Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
