So for the first time in my life I asked for help. Sounds very strange, but it is a thing. Look, I have sometimes asked if someone could help me with small things, but for something bigger …. no. Me and Gerben are of those types who can manage it all themselves.
Ask friends for help
I suddenly realize that when we moved house 5 years ago, we asked our friends to help with odd jobs. Because I can’t do that anymore. And since we had everything rebuilt in this house, and there was still enough left for Gerben, we asked our friends. I found it quite exciting to ask, we, and our friends, don’t ask each other for help easily. The majority of them are self employed and are very busy as it is. But everyone helped really well at the time, and that really shattered. We where very grateful. Btw, if we ask now, they all would help immediately! They are that sort of friends!
Ask the council for help!
But now I have asked the council for help. Firstly for household help. I certainly do what I can do myself. But Gerben does the heavier jobs such as the bathroom, washing the windows, mopping, etc. But Gerben also simply doesn’t have any time left and then I decided to apply for help from the municipality. And I have decided that I want a good wheelchair. I can walk a little bit, on a good day with no wind, and I want to be able to go somewhere and not always need someone to push me around. (haha, I don’t like to be pushed around!) Well, we now get household help two hours a week and I get a new wheelchair with support. A Smoove. I’m actually quite happy with it, I was allowed to try one for two weeks. So it isn’t always scary! It can also turn out very well. Learned another lesson!
What am I wearing
A pinstripe dress that Tessa made for me and a navy long cardigan with sneakers! Casual meets business or something like that. Or just a dress with a cardigan and sneakers. Haha. I wear a lot of blue I noticed! How did that happen. Well, I love this dress, especially the cuffs. Tessa is a Dutch fashion designer who makes customized clothing. She made me this one a few years ago. And she customized this one in 2018.
I am wearing some leopard print accessories with the dress. Also the earrings have a leopard print, a gift from Gerben for Christmas, but I don’t think it’s that visible for you!
Shop the ask for help look!
