I think I have been in the Netherlands for two months now. Sometimes I still think in English and use English words. Do I miss England? I guess I miss having an adventure. Me just going to Hastings for no reason at all. Just wanted to be out. By myself. I mean I could do that now too obviously. But let’s say the fatigue is still kicking in. Luckily, I finally know what is physically wrong with me and now I’ll take a few pills and hopefully it will all be over by Monday.
Hopefully, I’ll start feeling better rested and more joyful. I might actually have a different job this summer. We’ll see. I am looking forward to next weekend. I’ll be a weekend away with my date. That’s nice. This weekend I am seeing a childhood friend. He moved from Watford to Amsterdam. He’ll be living in the Netherlands for two years. I am curious to hear what he thinks of my city Zwollywoooood.
It’s nice weather. Next week it will be nearly 40 degrees Celsius. I’ll be hiding away somewhere in the shade. Possibly swimming. For now, the temperature is nice. My cat is hanging around. Trying to catch the sparrows. I bought food for the sparrows. Now I have several visiting my balcony. I enjoy taking care of plants, birds and my cat. My cat can be really cute. A neighbour is sending me pictures of him laying on her sofa.
I am starting to get used to my new situation. I am living with a new housemate. She brings her date around a lot. It’s like living with two new people. It’s starting to feel a little crowded. But so far she has been quite pleasant. And we’ll have plenty of time to get to know each other.
Dear Jos, if you are reading this. We miss you. Neighbour Yoeri misses you too. That’s to our previous neighbour Jos who is in Switzerland. I spend a lot of time on our huge roof terrace with Yoeri and he misses his old housemate Jos. Yoeri and I are taking care of the plants. We love it.
I am wondering if people actually still read this since I have been back for two months now. I can imagine people have lost interest. Being abroad sounds so exciting. I guess it was in a way. I experienced a lot of new things. Saw new places. I really liked going to a hostel by myself. I might do that again in the future. It was a lot of fun. I do miss the people I met there. I do stay in touch.
Wherever you are, I hope you are having a good time. Say hi to the butterflies and the bees and enjoy your day! Until next time! x
