5 days in the life of… (2)

Day 2: Friday July 18th, 2014

I was up bright and early. The weather forecast said that it was going to be a hot day, so I decided to go to the gym first thing. My goal is to go to the gym at least twice a week, sometimes I only manage to go once, sometimes I can squeeze a third time in. This week I was happy to meet my goal.

I usually leave my phone at home when I go to the gym, because I don’t have any use for it there. I took it with me this time, but decided to leave it in my locker. I just don’t feel comfortable taking photos at the gym. When I was done (after an hour of fitness), I found myself alone in the dressing room and I took a quick selfie in the mirror, just for you:

I rode my bike back home, made myself a cup of coffee and read up on the latest news about MH17:

I felt so sad, seeing the photos on the front pages of the Dutch papers that morning. I kept thinking about how most passengers (families!) on the plane were supposed go on vacation and how happy they must have felt going on that dreadful plane.

After a second coffee I did household chores on the ground floor:

I made myself lunch, ate it, took a shower, got dressed, put a load of laundry in the washing machine and went to work on a couple of blog posts:

One load of laundry down, two more to go:

Onto photographing pages that were previously published in Scrap365, snack time, checking e-mail, editing photos:

Dinner time is approaching. Harold is coming home. There is a napa cabbage in the fridge that needs to be used up, so I improvise some kind of stir fry. We eat in front of the TV, watching news about MH17:

Harold goes out to buy us ice cream. I make him a cup of coffee:

Cleaned the kitchen, watered the plants outside, put the last load of laundry in the machine, browsed the internet, worked on yesterdays ‘5days’ blog post whilst listening to 3FM on the radio and put the last load of laundry into the dryer before heading off to bed.

Today I nominate Sandra because she’s one of my most loyal blog readers. She’s a scrapbooker, a wonderful story teller and I love the clean and simple pages she makes about her kids!

See you tomorrow!
