Just 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!

Have fun !
Thanks! I intend to 😀
I don’t even know where Karlsruhe is… irgendwo in der Mitte…?
Baden-Württemberg! We’re near Heidelberg, Strasbourg and the Schwarzwald.
Ah! Almost. I was only…. a few hundred miles out 😉
Have a nice break in Ireland
Have a great time!
Excellent use of ‘whereupon’! Hope you manage to get everything done.
Thanks. Nearly done now…
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.
Oh believe me, I am exhausted! I would love to go to bed right now, but there’s so much to doooo! (Imagine that as a long, drawn-out whine).
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!
Haha, ok. I shall do my best 😉
Ireland? So fun! How long will you be gone? And I bet it’s cooler there than in Karlsruhe!
Cooler as in temperature or awesome? 😉
The temperature will definitely be lower but the weather forecast for Dublin currently says no rain… I am keeping an exe on it.
Oh, and I forgot to say, we’ll be away for 2 weeks.
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!
Jane Austen of the 21st century 😀
The Irish people in Germany have been very nice… giving us discount vouchers and tips on where to go. Hopefully the ones who haven’t left will be just as friendly 😉
Here’s hoping! Normally the people who leave are the best ones 🙂
