First, a couple of photos from the naturalisation ceremony that took place. I was incredibly stressed about the ceremony but I am happy to report that it was actually a fantastic experience – even fun!
So, having now become Dutch (at least on paper) I am faced with the small issue of this blog. The direction of this blog has been on my mind for many months now and going about as Dutch as I possibly can just puts more fuel on that particular fire. Whilst I mull this all over I intend to take a blogging hiatus, on this blog in any case (I will still be scribbling over on Happy Sensitive Kids) whilst I consider where to go from here.
I will still be popping up with articles (including one planned for Amsterdam Mamas on the naturalisation process I have just been through) and sharing the excitement of a Kick Starter campaign with you which begins next week for our upcoming book Knocked Up Abroad Again. I will remain fully active on the Expat Life Facebook page and on Twitter, sharing news and updates there. You can also catch up with me and my scribbles on http://www.amandavanmulligen.com.
So I’m not disappearing – I’m merely collecting my thoughts and deciding on the next move….. get in touch if you have a brilliant idea you’d like to share with me!
