How did you get there?

Your mother teaches you almost everything, starts with birth. She feeds you and takes care of you, she also protect you. She is like a lion and takes care of her children. She learns you the start of life. When you go to school you learn more of the world around you. But your mother will always be there to look after you, and gives you advise if you ask her.

Give us a description of a typical day

I wake up around 7 o’clock, shower,  eat breakfast, wake up the kids to go to school or work. Make some sandwiches for work and make some sandwiches and drinks for the kids for school and work. Leave around 8.15am with car to work. Depends on where I work that day it takes me about 30 to 60 minutes to arrive.

I work at a Boots Pharmacy in the Netherlands, and help people to get the right medicine and take them on time, I work from 9am til 17.30pm and have a break of 30 minutes for lunch. after that I drive home and arrive between 6pm and 6.30pm. Sometimes my husband makes diner and sometimes I have to make it myself. After that I watch tv and clean up the kitchen. I have coffee around 8pm and watch some more tv and sit on the sofa. Sometimes I do some cleaning or ironing and I go to bed around 11.30pm.
