Well, the Netherlands are in a lock down since last Tuesday. It was about time because the infections were much too high. Too bad they didn’t do it earlier than a week before Christmas. Super annoying that I finally had a appointment with my nail stylist last week after having canceled twice. So any idea what my nails look like? And this week I had a appointment with my hairdresser. Also even after having missed an appointment. Well, you will see from the pictures in the coming weeks, gray as a mouse! But January 21, I have an appointment!
Lock down is far more worse then a few missed appointments of course
Gosh, what a terrible year for many of the entrepreneurs. Not to mention the health issues. And it seems to be getting a lot worse with the mutations now being discovered everywhere. I would prefer not to leave my house with Gerben until sometime in March.
Despite the fact that I don’t work and nowhere have to go, so you would think that I am very bored, I am running out of time. Last week we had to arrange a lot for our new car. Insurance and delivery, etc., etc.
On Thursday I had two meetings, one of which failed. I was totally ready and waiting, and then it does not work. First someone would come to my house to attend the meeting together, so I bought cookies, because we don’t normally eat them, but because of the lock down she attended the meeting at her own house. I am now left with two packs of cookies! I have to eat them myself now …. I have a hard life, you understand that ….
New car….what a strange feeling
Saturday the car was delivered and our old one was taken. We loved our Merc, it was a great car, but after almost 12 years we wanted something else. When that was all done Gerben and I looked at each other and said: I don’t feel at all euphoric because there is an almost new car in the driveway. Normally you go to the showroom to pick up your car and drive back home completely exited. Now it was of course different. We felt a bit weird.
We immediately went for a ride of course and then the feeling of exitement came. Sunday we went for a bicycle ride because the weather was nice. Cold, but dry and the sun shone now and then. I came home so cold but it was worth it. Gerben had a breakdown service and was called when he wanted to start cooking. So he got a take away and then he went out and only came home in the middle of the night. He slept a few hours and when on again.
How is your part of the world. Is your country in lock down? I think the most part of Europe is now. Have a good week. Almost Christmas, so lets enjoy that!
Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
