About Me

Spread the love

Hi I’m Sam,

Welcome to my blog and thanks for joining me!

I love so many things in life including my family, having fun and life in general.  My motto is ‘you only live once so make it count!’.


I am British born but have a little bit of wanderlust within me.  I lived for a good number of years in Greece which is where I actually met my partner who happens to be Dutch.
We moved back to the UK, bought our first home together and settled for 12 years until we both started to feel the itch again.

My latest adventure actually started 5 years ago when we moved from the UK together our two adorable daughters (now 6 & 8) to the Netherlands.

My initial goals after relocating were to learn the language, try to get to grips with the way of life here and make friends.

I guess I am pretty much on track.  I now speak the language (although this is still work in progress), have made friends and am loving living here.


Why I Started The Blog

Now that I have finally started to find my feet and settle in I have turned my attention to what seems like a million different projects.

I love being creative and pride myself up on being savvy and making the Euros stretch as far as possible.

The blog was initially a way for me to keep all my hobbies and crazy projects in one place.

But once I started the blog I got the ‘blogging bug’ and it has opened up a whole new world for me.


I have discovered so many other fabulous blogs and people that now…


… the inspiration keeps flowing and the blog just keeps growing 🙂


In the blog, I would like to share my adventures, experiences, thoughts and tips with you.

Home Decor Inspiration, DIY Projects, Craft Tutorials, Recipes, Kids Activities, Family Fun With A Sprinkling of Dutch Style, Tips & Facts.
