A day in Hoorn

This week I visited the Dutch town of Hoorn with a group of colleagues, and we had so much fun. Hoorn is a historical town by the water with a rich history, and I had never been there before. 

There were cats...

... pretty buildings...

... and a museum...

... with loads of pretty stuff!

It was a great day, with lovely people, loads of laughter and good food.

Visiting an unknown local town is so much fun - I should do it more often! :)

Back In Business (kind of...)

To everyone who started following Nittybits on Facebook and Bloglovin': welcome! :) To everyone who left a comment or sent an e-mail: thank you! And to everyone who is still waiting for my reply: I'm so sorry...

Besides being crazy busy at work the past few months I had an operation about two weeks ago. Nothing serious: they removed my tonsils. But damn, it sure was painful!! Or actually: it is painful, because I'm still not fully recovered.

The upside to feeling so absolutely horrible for two weeks - I couldn't eat anything for 8 days and didn't talk for 12 - is the appreciation you feel for all the ordinary stuff you normally take for granted. Like chatting with people, eating without pain, having energy for blogging and photography, sitting in the sunshine, listening to music, dancing, singing.

Right after I came back from the hospital the weather significantly improved. I felt so bad I was missing out on the first real summer days of the year! So now that I'm starting to feel like myself again, I'm really bursting with energy to make up for lost time. Mentally that is, because physically I'm not completely there yet: I still feel extremely exhausted and talking is painful.

Thankfully I have something to look forward to: I'm heading off to the UK next week for a holiday, and I can't WAIT to enjoy the hell out of it :)

Hope you all are well, and enjoying life wherever you are in the world.
