So picture this if you can…I’m there in my kitchen taking a fresh batch of vanilla cupcakes out of the oven (I’ve become some what of a domesticated goddess as of late, I blame the Great British Bake Off) and I get an email notification that the lovely Miss Charlene Spillane has commented on my latest blog post nominating me for The Sisterhood Of The World Award. Two things came to my mind instantly 1) I was so pleased that she had read my post and liked it and 2) I was confused I’ve never heard of this Sisterhood-thing before but was intrigued.
I started my blog on August 1st 2014. I started it really for myself as a way to mark off milestones in my Dutch language and for an outlet to ramble on and on about all think Dutch. Charlene, i think, was my first ever follower and most definitely the first person to comment to me and wave a friendly hand. For anyone who hasn’t checked out her blog, why the hell not? She is currently living it up in Amsterdam (not jealous, no not one bit ;p) and self teaching Dutch too. I love reading everything she is getting up to and hope that the next time I am over in the land of Windmills and Cheese we can meet for coffee (well I don’t drink coffee but Dutch Chocomel, made with milk of course NOT water, is the best substitute).
