So we’ve been in the Netherlands for six months. That feels both like a really long time and no time at all! Looking back we seem to have achieved quite a bit, including:
Preschool – my son seems to have settled in well, and my daughter is registered for when she turns two.
School – they’re both registered for Nov 2015 & Jan 2018 respectively
Health system – we have registered/seen a doctor, dentist, dietician and health visitor equivalents, as well as successfully claiming on our health insurance
House – we own it and have got most things sorted. Still one or two boxes hiding and a list of things to do, but much less than has already been done
Now most of the initial setting up is done it’s time to start thinking a bit longer term about what we need/want to do. First step, planning holidays 🙂
