WRD: Week 14:2021 Plugging Along

It was busy this week at work and the weather was not great. Seeing a pattern here? Also I feel very confused looking back at the week but now I realise it’s because we were off on Monday for Easter. Most exciting thing this week? Ah, two things – I saw my new GP. She’s…

WRD: Week 13: 2021 Just Blurgh

Sorry all; I’m just feeling really sick of things again. I figured out that some of my feeling is indeed FOMO; people are either getting vaccinated and getting their own life back and making plans, or quite the opposite – acting like nothing is going on and keeping the rest of us in lockdown. Sigh.…

WRD: Week 11:2021 Running Down to “Vacation”

This was my last week at work before a week long “vacation”. Obviously that word gets quotes because I am not going anywhere! Here in The Netherlands we are still in partial lockdown with curfew.

WRD: Week 4:2021 – Bye Bye January

Mentally Exhausting Week This was not the best week ever. There are a couple of things going on that had me pretty upset this week. Not the end of the world kind of stuff, but just frustrating things that I have very little control over. The situation upsetting me the most is that I am…

WRD: Week 3:2021 What Blue Monday?

Usually there’s a lot about chatter about Blue Monday – traditionally the saddest day of the year, due to a combination of dark, cold days and nights, possibly being broke from the holidays, and – for many people – a time when resolutions made already feel like resolutions failed. This year I not only completely…
