Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred One

[These Titles Are Getting a Bit Long]

In case you didn’t notice yesterday – we’ve hit the one hundred days of lock down.

And then.


But first the news:

My complaints are all physical now which I TOTALLY LOVE cause for some reason physical complaints are so much EASIER than mental ones.
