August Wrap-up

August wrap-up

August was such a fun month and the weeks went so fast.. I started my new job! I’m now working in a secretarial role at a high school. I was very excited and a bit scared to start, because this job is so different from what I did before (I’m a social worker and I worked with teenagers with behavioral and psychiatric problems). I do like it, though!

Also the Boyfriend and I went to a Flogging Molly concert and we went on a beer tasting day-trip to Haarlem (we visited Uiltje and Jopen brewery-bars).

And.. I read some books!

Let’s take a look at the books I’ve read and bought in August!

July Wrap-up

July Wrap-up

July was a wonderful month. We’ve been to a Guns ‘n Roses concert and to a food truck festival. The concert was amazing and the food at the festival was delicious (I had sushi and Indonesian food). Also we have a new family member, Fancy the budgie! He is such a cute and happy little bird and he makes me smile every day.

Also July was the month of the heatwave.. I live in the south of the Netherlands and while I’m writing this post it’s 36 °C outside and it has been like this for over a week now. That’s just too hot to get things done and I’ve been taking things slow.

Let’s take a look at the books I’ve read and bought in July!

June Wrap-up

June was a great month and I did some really fun things. On June 8th I celebrated my birthday and a week later the Boyfriend & I went on a city trip to Prague. I’ve spend a lot of time outside this month, since the weather was amazing. Also I went shopping for a wedding dress and I’ve send out some job application letters.. Exciting!

Unfortunately I didn’t read as much as I had planned this month.. You can see what was on my June TBR here.

Juni was een geweldige maand en ik heb een aantal er leuke dingen gedaan. 8 Juni vierde ik mijn verjaardag en een week later ging ik met mijn vriend op vakantie in Praag. Ik ben deze maand veel buiten geweest, want het was ontzettend lekker weer. Ook ben ik gaan winkelen voor een trouwjurk en heb ik een aantal sollicitaties de deur uit gedaan.. Spannend!

Helaas heb ik deze maand niet zo veel gelezen als dat ik had gepland. Je kunt hier mijn TBR voor Juni vinden.

Let’s take a look at the books I’ve read and bought in June!

May was a month with a lot of sunny days and I was so happy our garden is finally ready. I spend a lot of time outside this month. I’ve read some amazing books, although I didn’t read as much as I did in April.

Mei was een maand met veel zonnige dagen en ik was zo blij dat onze tuin eindelijk klaar is. Ik heb veel tijd buiten doorgebracht. Hoewel ik niet zo veel boeken heb gelezen als in April, heb ik deze maand een aantal geweldige boeken gelezen.

Let’s take a look at the books I’ve read and bought in May!
