Life & blog update: June...was another month of contrast. So full of promise at the beginning of the month and then again everything changed. The highlight of June was most definitely our family visit to the ZOO in Zagreb. It was a proper day trip with our two kids and another family. I’ll blog about our ZOO visit. I just don’t know when. I
was am seriously considering to quit blogging for the time being. I just don’t feel inspired or motivated at all to blog. Furthermore, Covid-19 means that we probably won’t travel abroad this year at all. And I just find it so hard to write about our local adventures since this blog was primarily set up to share my London adventures and my travels around Europe. Of course, my blog has changed over the years and now you can find some Croatia posts too (not too many though).
My boy finally went back to the daycare after being at home for almost two months. His (and our) joy didn’t last long though because he got chickenpox! Then, my baby girl got it from him too which meant again that we couldn’t see our friends. However, just before the chickenpox situation we managed to attend two kids’ birthdays. We bought our son a kids’ scooter and he’s been riding it like a pro 🙂 My baby girl has two teeth now and she’s a fast crawler. She tried swimming in the sea for the first time in her life. Her 9 month check up was cancelled because of chickenpox. What else? We finally finished playing Charterstone game. It was my first legacy game. We had a very fun night out with friends. We went bowling and I did quite well (I was better than my husband!! 🙂 ). My best friend received some amazing news. I’m so happy that she’ll be closer to me (she has lived in China in the past few years). One of my friends gave birth to a baby girl. I don’t know when we’ll be able to see her and the baby considering the current corona virus situation here.
Corona virus situation in Croatia changed quickly after the borders were opened, as expected. From zero cases to almost a hundred new cases per day. It’s not just the free flow of people that changed our health situation but the general attitude too. People abandoned safety precautions too quickly, in my opinion. It seems there is no life after corona, but just life with corona for the foreseeable future. For how long? Nobody knows…
I’ll end on a positive note, I have read a book in June! And another one in July so far!
Published posts in June
Have a great July!
