Believe it or not, I am getting busy! Yes, I’m still loving every single minute of my freedom, but I try to do ‘useful stuff’ as well. Because as much as I wish this period could last forever, at some point I do need to start working again… The BIG question however is, what will I end up doing? To figure this out I am … Continue reading #Week 4
I am sure you all recognize this: full of good intentions of getting your daily dose of fruit and veg, you buy a whole lot of it during the weekend. By the end of the week you see those bananas you bought turning a little brown and although you tell yourself you’re going to eat them, a few days later they end up in the … Continue reading Mmmilkshake
What a great week this was. Neeliesnextbite went live and I very much enjoyed working on it. There were so many things to learn! I definitely was a bit of a website building idiot, so creating a blog forced me to suck up a lot of new information and put it into practice immediately. Wanting to push myself a little further outside my comfort zone I … Continue reading #Week 3

Funny enough, despite being super excited about the idea at the time, it took me … Continue reading #Week 2

Like a little kid on Christmas morning I simply couldn’t wait to get up and play with my latest toy. Luckily, my new best friend came with a little booklet full of healthy looking … Continue reading Popeye’s Potion
Lisette and I have been friends for more than 20 years (yep, I’m officially old). We met in school when we were innocent little 9 year olds, went on numerous holidays together and even when I moved to Paris we stayed in touch. Every time I go back to Holland we meet up and we generally spend an entire evening chatting about our ‘terrible’ boyfriends, … Continue reading Pizza!
My first week of liberty kind of felt like a holiday. I absolutely loved the freedom of it, the total lack of work-related stress, the idea of not having to do anything if I didn’t feel like it, but most of all I appreciated having – loads – of time. I finally had time to do stuff! So, I found myself roaming the streets of … Continue reading #Week 1
