Hello! I’m off work today (using up some holiday from last year that needs to be taken before the end of March) and we’re hopefully going to look at a flat or two in Basel this weekend. We’ve definitely got one to view tomorrow anyway. Exciting! I hope you’re all having a nice Friday and not working too hard 😉 Now for today’s letters.
Dear Deutsche Bahn. In the last two weeks, you’ve managed to pull straight into the station in the morning exactly twice. On every other day, we’ve been on time throughout the entire journey only to stop immediately before our detination because the section of track at our platform was still occupied by another train. This kind of thing should not be happening 3 days in a row! Sort it out! I’m tired of missing my tram to work and having to walk (and arrive later).
Dear guy eating a chocolate muffin on the train. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks cake is a suitable breakfast!
Dear flat advertisers. I wish you would just get back to me already! Also, automated replies saying “phone the current tenant” are annoying. Does nobody out there do e-mail? How am I supposed to find the time to make phone calls?!
Dear fellow bloggers. Sorry if I haven’t visited your blog recently. I’ve been trying to get round to everybody but life (or, more accurately, work) keeps getting in the way!
Dear readers. Thanks for all the congratulations yesterday.
Now here are some links.
Cecilia in the Rain recommended this blog and it’s amazing! basically, this person takes her favourite books and creates food based on them. If you like cooking, books, or both you must check this blog out!
Are any of my readers Doctor Who fans? How about Lego fans? Then this will interest you: Doctor Who is getting its own Lego set later this year.
I recently came across this news article and I’m fascinated by it! This woman – going by the name of Lori Erica Ruff – committed suicide in 2010. When her husband and his family were going through her stuff, they found out that she had stolen the identity of a dead baby then legally changed her name from the baby’s name to another. Nobody seems to know who she really is. It sounds like the start of a mystery/thriller, except it’s real life. What?!
Have a great weekend everyone! I’m off to try and track down some more flats to enquire about…

I am surprised by the Deutche Bann letter – I thought Germans were renowned for their efficiency and timekeeping. 🙂 Thanks for the heads up about the Doctor Who lego – I know a few people who might be excited by that!
That’s the stereotype. In reality they’re often 10-15 minutes late.
At least you won’t have that problem in Switzerland 😉 Maybe they don’t strike either! Congrats on the anniversary! AWWWWW 🙂
Lol, we’ll see. At least if they do strike I’ll be safe at home 😉
I think ‘must try harder’ should be in order then!
Good luck with the flat hunting in Basel!
Thank you.I have a feeling we’ll need it!
Good luck with the flat! That blog sounds pretty cool! I mean baked goods and books? I will check it out! Thank you!
Best of luck in searching for a place to live!
Ugh apartment hunting is the absolute worst, and people are shockingly unhelpful, even when it’s their job!!! Best of luck to you guys, I hope it works out soon!
Thank you. The one flat we viewed was nice and we now have 2 more appointments lined up. I hope we get it sorted soon!
That blog Cecilia recommends looks so great! Chocolate, as well as cake, is also appropriate.
That blog is fabulous! Such a great idea.
Cake is always acceptable!!
Good luck with the flat hunting! Yup I agree, cake/muffin is definetly an acceptable breakfast! Especially if accompanied by tea! Mmmm
urgh public transport… the bus we take home in the evenings is late, every single time, so much so that we leave to get it at the late time… It can’t be that hard to work this stuff out.
Hope the flat hunting went well!
