2010 was the year where I
- left the UK to return to the Netherlands
(I haven’t regret it a single second, I am happy to be home again)
- bought my own place
(It needs a little bit of painting and I need to install a laminate floor in two rooms, but apart from that it is a great place with a nice view near a small river. I have the keys and will spent the next couple of weekends moving in.)
In 2011 I intend to:
- Rediscover my home country.
I feel like a tourist having been away for 15 years, and there are many places I have never seen in the Netherlands.
- Enjoy living in my new apartment
- Rebuilt a social life in the Netherlands
- Be happier in my job (I will start a new one the 1st of February)
- Get a little car so it will be easier to get around and go and see things
- Find happiness and peace of mind
- Blog a bit more
What are your plans for 2011?
I wish you all a fantastic, healthy, joyful and happy 2011!

Happy New Year to you, too! And good luck in your new home!
I didn’t have time to contemplate about my plans for 2011, although there are a couple of things in my life which I would like to change. Becoming more ‘easy going’ would be nice. With my family, at work, in general. Yes, thinking about it, this sounds like a plan.
But I won’t start today. We’ll be having a couple of people around tonight and I am running on adrenalin with all the preparations…
Happy New Year to you! Not being a “Twitterer,” I do miss your blogs, so hope that you find success with that resolution as well as the others. All the best in 2011 to you and your readers.
Happy New Year to you Ingrid! I received your Christmas card today and it made my day. I loved your design. Then I noticed you were in the Netherlands and I realised I have been rather out of touch. I’d enjoy seeing photos of your new apartment and the terrace. My mind travels to what sorts of things you will grow there. I have a few resolutions similar to the ones you’ve made. I stopped blogging and am going to start it again. And then there’s happiness and I would like to create a bit more of that. Oh and playing more music and knitting more shawls and mittens.
Your blog is always lovely, Ingrid. I’ll be back. Thinking of you, ox
Found your blog while doing a search for info on the film as I’d just finished watching it (picked it up at the library). I really like your writing style and you’ve got some lovely photos…I’m a photographer as well. I’m also a huge Bill Nighy fan. :)
Sounds like your 2011 is off to a lovely adventurous start and I hope it continues that way.
Ingrid – I’m glad you made the right decision and are being so positive. Hope 2011 is a great year for you but you’ll come back and say hello! in a Cafe in London sometime. Best wishes.
