Things have been a bit stalled in the home improvement department due to lots of little things going wrong, but not helped by the fact it's taking a week to get our car fixed. While a home improvement store is about half an hour walk away, I don't particularly fancy hauling lumber down the road. So we've done a few fun things instead!

"Let's rent a paddle boat" they said. "It will be fun" they said. Until your legs are so tired they feel like they will fall off, you've almost gotten hit by ten boats that are bigger than you and your boat is starting to fill with water. Aside from that, you should DEFINITELY rent a paddle boat in Amsterdam.

Remember me? I've been around a little on Instagram and even less so on Twitter, but not on this blog. I just haven't been able to bring myself to sit down at the computer and edit photos and blog when our house has been in shambles. We've been working pretty hard to finally put our stamp on it a year later, and we are also finally seeing results. Hooray! Never undergo major structural work while thinking you can paint/do anything anywhere else. The. dust. never. leaves.

I've been away from this little space for a bit because life has been in upheaval. I am not cut out for construction projects, I have been so stressed out! Organising builders, plumbers, and our amazing friend who is an electrician. I don't like living in a building site with a thick layer of dust covering everything in the kitchen meaning cooking is out of the question. I need a break!

I went to Germany! In case you didn't know. I left last Thursday and came back on Monday. I was there visiting family friends who happen to be living in the cutest German town, and happy accident, I was going to be there during Oktoberfest! So of course we went, but this time to the one in Stuttgart as it was close to where they live.
