It’s Friday again! Always a good day in my world, but even better this week because I took the day off to use up some overtime, and because my colleague and I agreed right at the beginning of the year that we would take two each of this year’s four bridge days (yesterday, was a holiday in my part of Germany – for All Saints Day). Here are this week’s Friday letters:
Dear four-day weekend. You have been fun so far. I’m really glad we still have 2 days to spend together.
Dear weather. Thank you for being terrible on Thursday, when we were staying in anyway, and brightening up today in time for our trip to Schwäbisch Hall.
Dear Schwäbisch Hall. You are pretty. I’m so glad I chose you as the next place to cross off on my list of 30 German towns before 30.
Dear boyfriend. Thank you for making such a supreme effort to come home at a reasonable time each night, and even calling/texting to let me know you’re leaving. I appreciate this more than you know. Also, thank you for driving to Schwäbisch Hall. To get their by train we would have had to change trains at least once (in Crailshaim, journey time 4 hours) and at most six times. SIX! By car it takes 1 hour 36 minutes (in theory). It’s a good job one of us can drive…
Dear sore throat. Please go away. I am invited to a birthday meal tomorrow night and I intend to go.
That’s all folks. Here’s a photo I took in Schwäbisch Hall. A proper post about our day trip will follow, too.
