This is what I'm up to as of March 6, 2017.

* Just entered my 10th month living in Amsterdam.

* Working online, full-time as a writer — mostly website copywriting.

* Looking for new clients and focussing my attention on Amsterdam eateries.

* Beginning to make some progress with my Dutch.

* Going to the cinema a lot (courtesy of Cineville) and writing reviews of everything I see.

​* Building up to writing the Guides. I'm nearly there, I feel it.

* Nurturing the love of my friendly neighbourhood parakeets.

* Going to the gym three times a week (in theory).

* Losing weight after popping it all back on again during the winter. 

* Looking for a soft-skinned, black-haired woman with a wicked sense of humour and maybe a child.

* Getting very excited about my first Spring in Amsterdam.
