Just a place for me to gather my thoughts

Two more days!

busybeeJust two more working days to get through before we go to Ireland… we fly Friday night, so I’ll be heading to the airport straight from work. And let me tell you I cannot wait. I am sooo in need of a holiday!

So, last night was quiz night. We didn’t win anything… the questions were hard this time. At least we thought so. The winning team managed to get 82 points, out of a possible 100! We weren’t the only ones to do badly… none of the usual suspects got a prize, which was quite cool actually. It’s nice to hear some new names being announced. And I now know that Karlsruhe is the 21st largest city in Germany.

Despite not winning a prize, it took us ages to leave! At one point I told my boyfriend “It’s quarter to one”, whereupon he promptly downed his whiskey (not quite was I was asking for…) but still continued chatting! It’s bad enough getting up at 6 a.m. on normal days, but after 4 hours sleep it’s just that bit more difficult. And at work today we had two hours of Excel training… I’m still not sure how I managed to stay awake!

No early night for me tonight either. Jan’s choir is practicing at our place tomorrow, which means I need to get pretty much all the packing done today. I will also be cleaning the kitchen and finishing translating his sister’s CV. Oh, and I also have some birthday cards to write. And we need to eat as well, of course, so add cooking to the agenda. Busy!!

That’s all from me today. Kind of a boring post today, but I did get to use the word “whereupon”, so it’s practically literature!

  1. I don’t even know where Karlsruhe is… irgendwo in der Mitte…?

  2. Excellent use of ‘whereupon’! Hope you manage to get everything done.

  3. Yay 2 more days! And wow, I would be exhausted if I were you. When I have to work the next day, I go to bed at like 10 lol.

  4. I expect a full report when you get back from Ireland – and then I will give YOU a full report when I get back from Ireland and we can compare notes and feel sad that we couldn’t be there at the same time! Hope you get everything done!

  5. Ireland? So fun! How long will you be gone? And I bet it’s cooler there than in Karlsruhe!

  6. You’re like a modern-day Jane Austen :) Have fun in Ireland! I hope the people are as friendly as I’m always claiming they are!
