It's always time for tea

Monkeys & Costume Parties | Loepsie’s Life

Happy Monday, my lovely readers! I can’t believe it’s Monday again. The weeks have just been flying by, November will be here before we know it, and I feel like there’s still so much I need to do before the move. It’s time to up my productivity! Luckily I have all of my content planned out for the weeks to come, I just have to film, edit and write everything and make sure it’s all scheduled. I’ve been trying to come up with a moving schedule today so that I know when to do what and to be sure I don’t forget anything. Any tips from experienced movers would be more than welcome! Anyways, let’s take a look at what I was up to last week through my photo diary πŸ™‚

My brother helped me make a model of our new apartment in SketchUp, including most of the furniture we’re planning to buy. Look how tiny it is, haha! It’s actually even smaller in real life, as we made the kitchen way too long in the model. It’s really nice have such a 3D model of the house though, and to be able to move furniture around digitally before we decide to purchase anything.

A Trip To The Efteling & A Bike Hostage | Loepsie’s Life

Hello to you, my lovely readers! I’m back again with another photo diary, showing you everything I was up to in the past week. This week has been a strange one, I have to say. Strange, but loads of fun. Let’s take a look!

Strange happening no. 1: when I got to Utrecht on my way home from dance class, I came to my bike which I’d parked at the central station, and found… Somebody else’s lock. On my bike. I asked the guard at the bike park what to do, and he advised me to come back next day with a saw (?!). He was fully prepared to help me get the lock off but he wasn’t allowed to supply the tools. The police apparently aren’t allowed to take a stranger’s lock off your bike either, as that would be considered damaging someone’s property. The guard said this happens quite a lot, sometimes people accidentally lock someone else’s bike in a hurry, thinking it’s theirs.

An Update From The HQ | Loepsie’s Life

Happy Monday, everybody! As I sat down to type up my photo diary of last week, I realised I had taken a grand total of three photos this week. Three. That’s not much to go on, haha! So instead of a photo diary, this week’s Loepsie’s Life is going to be a written update. With the solemn promise that I’ll do better next week πŸ™‚

I’ve been very preoccupied with several things this week. First and foremost, the move! November is coming closer, and with it Robbert’s and my move to Amsterdam. I didn’t really realise how much work is involved in moving, aside from the actual packing and unpacking. I let my landlady know I’ll be moving out in November. She asked whether I knew anybody who’d like to move into my studio, so I asked around and found a few people who were interested.Β Someone already came to look at the studio, and they were really pleased so I think they’ll be pursuing it.

Rain, Rain And More Rain | Loepsie’s Life

Happy Monday my lovely readers! I’m happy to report I’m finally feeling better and the sniffling has almost gone away. This past week I still suffered from the cold and was a bit drowsy, but I survived a pretty eventful week just fine. Eventful for me, that is, haha! You know me, I like things nice and quiet πŸ™‚
Let’s take a look at everything I was up to last week.

On Monday morning I headed to the vet to get some medicine for Penpingion, who’s been sneezing again. The ratties are doing great in general by the way, especially considering their age. They’re turning two in December already πŸ™‚ In case you were wondering by the way, yes, the rats are coming to Amsterdam with Robbert and me when we move!
