To say the least, August has been a hectic and chaotic period for me this year. It all started in late July when I along with 14 colleagues were let go from my job due to cut backs. Living in a foreign city not speaking the language fluently made me slightly panic for an hour or two until I remembered that there are lots of opportunities in Amsterdam for an ambitious lady such as myself.
I was lucky as I was given two months notice, however, was able to find a job within one month.

My surgeon said that they used to remove them all but they no longer do so…..I believe that’s a good thing.
