gerberas

How to give your Gerberas a second lease on life!

I love gerberas. They're nice and simple. They're simply flowers on top of a stalk. Unlike roses who come with lots of leaves and even thorns! You can enjoy gerberas for a very long time. Here's how!

Because when they grow tired, you can take a pair of scissors to them and give them a second lease on life! This is not the end! All you need is: A pair of scissores An old small bottle. I always…

Cleaning the top of your kitchen cupboards + Life Hack!

At the start of a new year, after getting rid of the Christmas tree, I always get the urge to do some serious cleaning. You know, to start the new year fresh and with a clean slate. Literally. So I decided to tackle the top of my kitchen cupboards. Top of the kitchen cupboards The top of the kitchen cupboards is notorious for several reasons: It's hard to reach.

Mean Mom Syndrome | Momfever

Mean Mom Syndrome

When we moved to the countryside I finally gave in, and we got two cats. Four years later we even got a little dog. But for many years, I firmly put my foot down when it came to pets. In 2011 I wrote this post about it. Mean Mom Syndrome For years now, I've been denying my kids the joy of having their own pet. Even though I'm not an animal lover, there's no pet on earth I wish to subject to the care, or lack thereof, of my kids. Through the years the kids have resigned themselves to the fact…

New Year wishes: what should I wish for? | Momfever

New Year wishes: what should I wish for?

It's 2021! A whole new year lies ahead! So I started saying: 'Happy new year!' but then I stopped and thought: 'Wait a minute. That's not very realistic, is it. No one can be happy all the time.' Wouldn't it be better to wish for something that's kind of universal. That will help you get through the good times ánd through the hard times? And then I thought of Epictetus. So here's my new year wish for you! 'I hope you'll find serenity to accept the things you cannot change, the courage to…

secret of Santa Clause

The secret of Santa Clause

'Who's cheating who,' sang Charly McClain. That's exactly what I wondered when my 11 year old son told me he found out Santa Clause was just another case of the Tooth Fairy when he was 8. 'I just didn't tell you, because I wanted to get my presents,' he explained. So all that time we thought we were keeping the secret of Santa Clause from him, he was keeping his own secret... That's parenting for you That's parenting for you. More often than not, the joke's on you...

living room

Living room make-over: from Summer to Autumn in 3 steps

And now it's like this: Here's what I did to create this make-over! I didn't spend any money on this make-over and changed only 3 things: I removed the whitish Ruggable, and laid the red one out. I changed the curtains. I changed the yellow Ektorp cover and put the red one on the sofa. I love the way the whole room looks different, without doing all that much!

Fitbit Charge 3 strap

Me and my Fitbit Charge 3, we go hand in hand. I never go anywhere without it, if I can help it. I know it's stupid but I always feel my steps go to waste if I don't have my Fitbit strapped around my wrist. So you can imagine I was bummed out when the strap of my Fitbit Charge broke. At first I tried to fix it with an elastic hair band. Like this: But it didn't feel safe! I was worried I'ld lose my Fitbit.

Naughty daddy | Momfever

Naughty daddy

I was taking my son Piet for his swimming lessons for the umpteenth time, feeling numb with boredom, when he suddenly said: 'Daddy is very naughty!' 'Oh yeah?'

Now thát got my attention and I asked angrily: 'Whích words did daddy use?' And in my mind I was thinking of some choice words I would have to say to daddy…

Netflix versus Amazon Prime | Momfever

Netflix versus Amazon Prime

I've had a Netflix subscription for about 5 years now. I still think the whole concept of Netflix is a great invention. But after 5 years I was like this woman who's looking into her full closet thinking: 'There's nothing I want in there.' That was me and Netflix. Let's give Amazon Prime a try Which is why I decided to give Amazon a try. And for about 8 weeks things were good. But then little things about Amazon started to annoy me. Like the way they put the button to expand the screen way…
