The last day of May is here, which means that it’ll only be one month before we’re already halfway through this year. Time really flies when you’re busy! So, what’s been keeping me busy? A lot of stuff, really, haha.
The first feedback from my proofreaders
I already received some feedback on my manuscript for Stempels last week. I’m going to process it later this week. It’s always amazing to see proofreaders put so much effort and time in helping me and it is greatly appreciated. I’m hoping that by the end of next month I can start sending out the polished version of the manuscript to publishers!
Time spent with friends is never wasted
Last weekend Bren went to visit our best friend Robin and they had big plans for the weekend. So did I, with Wouter and Niels, two of my best friends who I’ve known for over twenty years now. We had a lovely weekend playing video games, watching movies and sharing drinks 😉 It’s great that we’re finally reaching a point where we can do these things again, now that our country is slowly lifting more and more lockdown measures. On top of all that the weather was absolutely lovely, so we didn’t just stay indoors, we also went for a lovely walk.
The To-Dos are working nicely
Remember last week, when I said I wanted to help Bren get more grip on all the things she needed to do? Well the list has grown, but we’re already on list two by now and a lot of stuff has been done. I helped here where I could, of course. I just love seeing how something as simple as making a list can help to get a grip on everything that needs to be done. And by ticking all those things off the list you really get this feeling of accomplishment. Now I’m really hoping that we can keep the momentum going and create some space for relaxation as well, because we do both tend to take on too much stuff and end up feeling stressed. I know how to guard myself against that now, but we do both tend to be really busy with all of our work.
Tomorrow’s the start of a new month, so it’s also going to be a nice time to sit down and look at my year goals again and what I think is going all right and what needs more attention. I do feel like this has been a good year so far, though and I’d love to keep that up!
Have a great week!
