Is it just me or has this been a looong day? I actually had a cup of coffee at work this morning. This is a rare occurence… I’m too lazy to put the coffee maker on. But there was a language lesson going on (we do language courses as well as translation) and someone had made coffee for the teacher, so I got a cup. Hurrah! It didn’t wake me up any though. I’m still incredibly tired. I would say an early night is in order, but the boyfriend said he would call tonight and he never calls before 10pm, ever.
After work I went shopping. I had to buy stuff for the meal I’m cooking for my floor tomorrow. Yesterday I went shopping for myself. I spent 9 euros and 90 cents. For my whole weeks shopping. Today I spent 13 euros, on shopping for one meal for my floor. And I didn’t even buy everything! I left the most expensive bits to Jan, not because I’m tight but because it’s much easier for him to get hold of fresh parsley and 1,000g of mince. Aldi don’t do fresh herbs. They barely even do dried herbs! Jan has access to shops where they do sell such things, and also has the added advantage of being able to ask for stuff in German (ok, I can ask for stuff in German too… I just don’t want to).
I decided on strawberries and cream for the dessert. It’s kind of typically English… at least I’ve never met any German who would think of putting cream on their strawberries (it’s all about yoghurt or icecream here) and it takes much less work than trifle or even the incredibly simple apple crumble. A winner all round I’d say.
And now, once again, it’s tea time and I have to decide what I’m going to eat all on my lonesome…
