In the past I used to make bento’s for myself and my boyfriend. I was a sinologist and it was just the two of us.
Since then, a lot has happened
Our first was born in 2009, a beautiful girl. Our second, also a girl, was born in 2011.
Since then I’m training to be a midwife. Being a midwife in the Netherlands is apparently somewhat different then being a midwife in other countries. I believe that the UK or New Zealand system is closest to ours. When I’m done
studying I’ll be guiding both pregnancies and births independently. Here women can choose to either have a home birth
or a hospital birth, we are thoroughly trained to do both, with four years of university training.
I love my future-job, cannot imagine myself ever doing something else.
first picture was taken at 4:30 in the morning, right before a caesarean section. Right is me daytime-ish
Besides midwifery and spending time with my girls there’s a lot of other things I like. For instance making bento’s and cooking all kinds of food!
I like experimenting in the kitchen, I love our garden with its fresh produce and all things we can make from that
Other things that I love include, masking tape.
I like knitting stuff, blankets, sweaters, cardigans, hats, all kinds of stuff. Find me on ravelry onder pleen.
that would be my neverending pile of yarn, pic is outdated though since I’ve bought new ones since.
I like sewing stuff, for the kids mostly, sometimes for me.
Meet my neverending pile of fabric <3 :’)
And I adore the things my girls make me
So that’s it for now.
Next time, How my experiment turned out, making gluten free bread in our rice cooker…
