Janneke83(or Janneke) is a member in Netherlands . She has been a member for over 4 years (1680 days).
I'm a 31-year old girl from Hoogerheide (a small town in the south of the Netherlands, near the Belgium border). I'm married to Martijn (his grandmother is from Ukrain, Lviv) and living with him and my two cats: Gerrit en Suus. We are in the process of adopting two children from Slowakia. I work as a manager of a home care team. The elderly and the care of them had really stole my heart!
My work is very important to me, but I also try to spend as much time as possible with my family and friends. I practise yoga and like to go out to diner in a (Italian or Thai) restaurant. When out of money(but not only then), I like to cook for myself and my husband. In the rare time I sit on a couch or chair, I love to crochet :)
I am collecting cards with elderly people from all over the world. My office is becoming really lovely with them on the wall! Often, co-workers come and have a look at them, pick their favourite and get inspired.
I would like you to tell me something about the care for elderly in your country, how it is arranged, what could be inspiring for me?
And I also like
- food and/or drinks
- cats, big or small! my cats are B&W (one is tuxedo, black with white spots, the other one is off-white with rusty red and brown and black spots) and my mother collects cats & piano (together) cards...
- polar bears
- anything tupically Russian or from Ukrain
But really, really, anything is welcome (also ad and home made)! Only use the list as a guideline, as I like to have one myself!
Und Leute aus Deutschland: Ich bin sehr glücklich mit karten von der Sendung mit der Maus. Mein Vater ist eine groBer fan!
Sometimes I try to take off the stamps from a card, for the driver of the bus my grandmother -88- drives with a lot. His name is Faruk (a stamp-collector) and he is very nice to her, so (I think) he deserves it. If you think you have stamps that would make him happy, please send your card in an envelope. But please don't make too much effort of it!
(by the way, my grandmother got a card from him with christmas to thank for all the lovely stamps he received! so cute!)
You are all very welcome to join me on facebook! And finally: don't be bothered to write in English if you can do so in German, French, Russian, Finnish Spanish or anything in between! I loveeee to puzzle!
From Janneke with love...
