Well people, it’s Friday again and I was almost very late for work this morning! I always set my alarm for 5:45, take my pill then reset the alarm to 6 a.m. I did that as usual this morning, but for some reason the 6 a.m. alarm either didn’t go off or we both slept through it. I woke up at 6:55, checked the time then jumped out of bed in a panic. I have to leave at 7:20 to catch my train, and I actually did! I was showered, dressed, teeth brushed and bag packed in 25 minutes. Phew! Luckily today wasn’t a hair washing day 🙂 Now it’s lunch time, and also time for Friday letters.
Dear alarm. Why?? That is all.
Dear new work customer. Thank you for giving me something to translate this week that was actually interesting! I feel like I’ve mostly been translating the same things for months, so it made a nice change to learn somthing new.
Dear weather. You’ve been glorious all week, then this morning it was raining. Please bring back the sunshine for the weekend (and most especially for Sunday when my boyfriend’s choir are performing at an outdoor festival!)
Dear boyfriend. You’ve been working so hard again this week! So I’m planning on making you a surprise while you’re at your all-day choir practice on Saturday. (Don’t worry readers, Jan never reads my blog so he won’t know he has a surprise coming until he receives it).
Dear cross stitch. I can’t wait to have you up on the kitchen wall! Just need to iron on the interfacing and frame you now 🙂
Dear Scotland. I’m glad to see you’ve decided to stay with the UK. I just hope the politicians can now work something out that will make both sides happy – and also that if any Scots are upset about the outcome, they don’t decide to come rampaging into England. The area I’m from will literally be on the front line if that happens! Time to rebuild our castles? 😉 (Also, I do wonder whether many more people would have voted Yes if it hadn’t meant being stuck with Alex Salmond as their leader?)
That’s all. I need to eat and get back to work now. Have a great weekend everyone!
I’m linking up with Kate again for Daily Diaries.

I hate it when I wake up late! Well done for still getting out on time. 🙂 Have we seen another photo of the kitchen cross stitch since the one you posted when you had only just started it? Will there be a photo of the finished article?
No, I haven’t posted another photo of the part I was working on, but there will definitely be a photo of the finished article – all four parts. The one I showed you was the third little picture.
I love your style of article here. I’m visiting from Daily Diaries btw haha
I hate it when the alarm doesnt go off… it makes me move faster than I ever have before. Kudos to you for getting out on time!! X
Thanks for stopping by. Glad you liked the post.
I’m pleased I didn’t wake up any later or I would definitely have been taking the next train (and working longer this evening)!
I’d NEVER have made that train. I’m in awe.
Haha, thanks! I can be fast when I have to 🙂 (My step mum holds the record – bathed, hair washed, dressed, hair dried and out in 14 minutes – my dad’s army mates told her she had 15 minutes to get ready or they would carry her out in whatever state she was in).
No chance. I’d have been carried off, a smattering of lather barely concealing my …erm… modesty 😦
An outdoor choir festival sounds exciting! x
It’s not a choir festival, it’s a general festival that his chor is performing at 🙂 There’s other music too and – most importantly – food stalls!!
Oh wow, you definitely did a great job getting ready in 25 minutes! I am not sure if I could do it!
Your boyfriend doesn’t read your blog?!? I guess he knows what you do from day to day, but still. My husband reads and critiques mine: “Your posts are getting longer. I thought you were trying to shorten them.” 🙂 I always like your Friday letters. I hope the festival goes well and the weather stays pleasant!
He said he wants me to feel like it’s a “diary” of sorts and that I’m free to write anything on here without worrying that he might see it. He knows I’ve used my blog in the past to get relationship advice. He does have the URL though and I often tell him what I wrote about or read a funny comment out to him.
Its funny how you can still get ready on time even when you have way less time, i think it shows us how much time we waste ! I really like this style of writing its unique 🙂
Thanks, I’m glad you like the post!
I definitely waste time in the morning, but I’m not usually awake enough yet to get ready quickly!
I woke up late today as well – had 15 minutes to get out the door – and I did 🙂 Horrible feeling!
The weather is still nice here – I’ll send some sun to Karlsruhe! 🙂
Your morning sounds like a normal one for me. I do not do well with getting up early so I always find myself in a rush with less than 30 mins to get ready. It’s perfected now ;).
I’m also glad that Scotland said no but rather worried what will happen now! I do t want Wales to get some big ideas…. Wales cannot afford independence not matter what we say! Ooooo me being political and controversial! Erm moving on….
… Send your rain this way please! We need it! How amazing is it that you managed to get up and ready and catch your train despite the alarm not going off!? Hope all goes well with the surprise for Jan!
