Simpleology blogging course

I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology.  For a while, they're letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.
It covers:
  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.
I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.

Finally a HOT Summer!

Yesterday was the hottest day I have ever experienced in Amsterdam. It must have been around 38 degrees! Of course it was also the day we decided to move house! Murphy's law!
We did manage to enjoy the evening after all the stress of packing and walked across the Amstel to have dinner at a little Greek restaurant. It was sooo hot that we had to strip the baby down to his nappy and drape wet cloths over him to keep him cool. Hard to imagine that in another few months we will be huddled up in our furry things, surrounded by snow! I love Amsterdam in the Summer. I feel totally at home in these temperatures.

In a flash!

Life passes by in a flash! It seems that the older one gets, the quicker time passes.
When I was a child, it seemed like a year was FOREVER...
I look at my baby son who is almost 6 months old and I can't believe how fast he is growing and changing. It is wonderful but it also makes me sad to think that this special baby time will be over so quickly.
This is a picture taken yesterday, just before he knocked my Bloody Mary over us both! Of course it had to happen as we were both wearing white!

not so glamorous - moving house!

The next few months are going to be rather disruptive. We are in the process of moving house. Not directly into our new home, as we have to renovate first... I am surrounded by boxes and even though I am an expert mover - having done it about 20 times now, it is always disruptive. We will be living out of suitcases for the next few months as everything is going to storage.

On a brighter note - Amsterdam is gorgeous today. Sun is shining and I am wearing my gorgeous little black top that I bought on Queens Day from a fabulous stylist.
Amsterdam in the Summer is so gorgeous. This is such a special city and I am growing to love it.

The beginning of my blogging...

Finally, I have managed to start my blog!

There are so many things to write about - life: all the good, the bad, the serious and the not so serious stuff, so my blog is going to include everything that inspires me - the topics that touch my heart, but also the glamorous, the creative, the fabulous and the delicious little details that make life so delectable...
