Starting again

05 January 2023

The New Year has brought me a good cough, which I have been carrying around since the first of January.My holidays have passed without infamy or glory between the cough and the lousy weather.I am slowly retranslating all the posts on this blog, and I am reading. I mean: I’m...

#332 - The silver lining

05 October 2014

So yesterday, we celebrated by playing with some Lego Star Wars because a day here is long to spend.On my sixth day in the hospital, I have to say that I’m starting to pause; I know that I still have to be patient, but since I’m doing so well, I had...

09 January 2013
