The friend book. #BEDM day 1

I have been planning to start writing and publishing blogs for some time now and I decided that this month would be the month. I thought it would be a good idea to join a blogging challenge to write every day in May and when I went on google to look for one, I found Blog Every Day in May from Elizabeth. I decided to join her and all the other bloggers in doing this challenge. So here is the first post of the month.

One of the things that all my girls have been interested in lately is the ‘friend book’.
This is a book with some kind of questionnaire where  answers need to be filled in by each friend.
They are very popular here in Holland. You can buy a lot of different ones in different styles and with different (but a bit similar) questionnaires.
Ixora and Yovannah got one at the end of last year and Nevaeh finally got one a few weeks ago.
I used to love them too when I was young. When I was living in Suriname, I did not have a real friend book yet as the ones you can buy here in Holland in the shop, but I used to have note books where I would make up the questionnaire myself.
They were always interesting because you would find out a lot of things about someone which you did not know. When I was a teenager I made my first one. I was moving from middle school to high school and thought it would be a nice way to remember my class mates by. It was very interesting and strange to find out that some guys seemed to like me more than they showed.
In another book I made years later, I thought it would be nice to add the question; ‘ what do you think about me ?” That also led to surprising things like finding out that a good male friend thought that I looked ‘sexy’ (?) Funny ! I helped Yovannah and Nevaeh to fill in the answers in Yovannahs friend book and learned that one wants to become a ballerina and the other a princess. So funny and cute !
But looking at the questions in Yovannahs friend book (I actually promised her that I will also write in her book at the end) made me think that it would be fun to answer them in a blog post.
Today when I decided to join the BEDM and as I looked at the topic for today, I remembered that I still had this post that I planned to write for a while.
So here are my answers to the questions in Yovannahs friend book.

Colour of my eyes:  brown
Colour of my hair:  dark brown
Length :  approximately 170 cm
Weight:  ???? I have no working scale at the moment, but probably more than I would like !?
What makes me special:  think, think, think….
I really love to worship God with all that is within me and I do this at least every week on Sunday and sometimes at home.
Hobbies:  Reading, singing, writing, fitness
Favourite film:  think, think….The Matrix (!?) (Surprising choice for me since I am a romantic comedy ‘chick flick’ kind of girl.
Favourite tv series:  Too many. To name a few; Switched at birth, Parenthood, Suburgatory, Felicity, Grey's Anatomy, Quantico
Favourite Book:  The bible, The wedding from Nicholas Cage, I love Christmas by Lindsey Kelke
What I love to eat the most:  Saouto soup (Surinamese-Indonesian soup) , the tastiest thing ever !!
Favourite animal :  dog
I’m good in:  encouraging people and writing ( I hope)
What I want to be:  business owner, Montessori teacher (currenlty qualified but not teaching), kids fashion designer, fulltime worker for God one day.
My favourite country for holiday:  Romania
Three things I would take to a desperate island:   My bible, a photo album with pics of loved ones and a hammock. (If people would be possible clearly it would be : Ix, Yov and Bea-Boo. It wouldn't be the same without them !) 
My dream wish:  To be a godly wife to a man of God one day and fulfill Gods plan for my life.

Yovannah just got her first friend book

So this was my first post for this month and I really hope that I can stick to my plan to write every day this month.  Some days I might use the topic of the day and some days not.
I hope you’ll be here to read a long and I hope to hear from you when you do.

Did you have a friend book when you were growing up ? I would love to hear from you.

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Nevaehs Summer Bucket list

Unfortunately, it seems that this year the Autumn weather has started earlier than last year. And so I finally wanted to write a blog post to share Nevaehs Summer Bucket list with you.
This Summer, we mostly stayed in the Netherlands. We only went to Germany to visit Moviepark Germany for two days. At the beginning of the break, the girls entertained themselves by playing games and watching youtube video’s on their tablets and laptop. This bothered me a bit, so one evening I called them all together to sit down and told them to make a bucketlist for the Summer. The first one to finish was allowed to have the last bit of ice cream. Nevaeh can already write a little bit but I told her that she could draw instead. So she made a bucketlist with 10 items on it. The actual bucket list got lost somewhere but we memorized what was on it and I’m glad to say that she has been able to do all the items on it.
So here is Nevaehs Summer Bucket List.
