• I could use some feedback

owen-and-sophia

Sometimes I think that everyone is crafting around the world, because of that endless amount of inspiring blogs. But in my daily reality, that’s not the case….

• I’m not that mobile right now

hospital

Last saturday I ruptured my achilles tendon during a tennis game. Yesterday I got surgery and now my leg has to stay in cast for 6 weeks. It was the first time I had to stay in the hospital and I was very afraid for the surgery and anaesthesia. But all the nice people of […]
