So, last night I managed to pull/hurt something in my neck while trying to retrieve a roll of wrapping paper from under the spare bed. I was reaching, then suddenly OUCH! Preparing for Christmas is quite literally a pain in the neck! I ended up going to bed with a hot water bottle to put on my neck and this morning I’m mostly better (I can turn my head again and also move my right arm without pain, which is useful for typing!). At least I managed to get one more box of prezzies ready for sending, so that’s what I’ll be doing after work tonight. Then tomorrow we’re off to the Christmas market at Burg Hohenzollern… for those that don’t speak German, that’s a Christmas market at a castle. So that should be fun. And now, letters.
Dear person on last night’s train. If you were in such a hurry to get a connection, you could have just asked me to let you leave the train first! Pushing really wasn’t necessary. And how do you know I wasn’t rushing for another train, too?
Dear Iceland. Sorry we can’t come and see you for New Year after all. One day, I hope!
Dear post office. Please don’t steal too much of my money tonight! I still have 3-4 packages to send after this one.
Dear boyfriend. Thanks for wrapping some gifts for me the other night. It was a nice surprise 🙂
Dear cards. Why do you take so long to make? I’m convinced stitching the pictures for you took less time than the transforming into actual cards part!
And now some links:
- This “birth annoucement retraction” from the parents of a transgender teen is the best thing EVER! Parenting… you’re doing it right.
- My friend K (who is occasionally mentioned on this blog) sent me this list of ways to jazz up your hot chocolate. Most of them are fairly simple, but I am an idiot so I need a list like this to inspire me to do something like add Nutella to my hot chocolate.
- Gatwick airport rated the best and worst airlines for delivering luggage to the baggage carousel on time. Good to know!
- Valkenburg in the Netherlands has a Christmas market in a cave! I NEED to go there!!
That be all folks. Have a lovely weekend!
