The sun! The sun! After all the rain and cold, finally summer has arrived!!
This weekend I have spend as much time outdoors as possible, enjoying the sun. That’s why I haven’t been writing on my blog for the last couple of days. When you live in The Netherlands, you need to enjoy it while it lasts!!
Yesterday, I went to the zoo with my friends and their kids: Lynn, Alessandro, Adele and Giorgia. The weather was perfect, the animals lovely, the kids were having fun…what more can you want on a random Sunday morning! It was awesome.
Btw, Lynn is an American mum, married to an Italian dad and raising their two little girls in The Netherlands. Lynn has a blog (and website) about raising your children in a foreign country: Nomad Parents. If you too are raising children abroad, you should definitely check out her blog!
This afternoon I left work a bit early to do some shopping. I bought a nice little table for on my balcony. I’m actually sitting on my balcony writing this post on my laptop at my new table, yay! And since I have the evening sun on my balcony, I had to think of a way to shield me and my computer from the sun. I bought two wind/sun shields from Ikea and they are a perfect fit for my balcony. I love it! Now, I can sit on my balcony in the shade!
Did I mention that I love it already?!? I love it!! And so does Sam, my cat!
Fair enough, the fixing method (now just painters tape) needs some tweeking :). But imagine how awesome it will look when I put hooks in the wall to attach the shields to!!
Now, while finishing this post, I’m already daydreaming about the lovely summer evenings I will be spending on my balcony this week. Starting tonight! With a good book on my sofa on my balcony!!
