The best laid plans…

At risk of boring you all to death, here are my plans for combining work and flat hunting this week, at least until we (hopefully!) get offered one of the places we’ve already looked at. Jan is in Munich for work, so I have to do it all on my own.

Monday: Start work at 7:30 (this didn’t happen… I got caught chatting to a colleague and it was 8 am by the time I actually started working – so I’ll have to have an extra short lunch break instead). Leave work at 4, catch a train to Baselย (pray for no delays!) and view a flat at 7 p.m. Arrive back in Karlsruhe at 10 p.m.

Tuesday: Start work at 8:30 a.m. (normal time), work til 6 p.m., then go straight to pub quiz from work.

Wednesday: Work from home from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. Afternoon off! Take train to Basel and view two flats in two different small towns just outside the city (one at 3 p.m., one at 5:30 p.m.). Possibly view a third flat in yet another small town between 6:30 and 7 p.m., if the person gets back to me.

Thursday: Work from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. I have no evening plans, so I’ll either work some more from home later or finally get round to doing the dishes that will have been waiting for me since Sunday!

Friday: (Current plan) Work from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (First normal working day of the week!). However, if somebody offers me an appointment after 6 p.m. on Friday, I’ll be doing the same as Monday – start work at 7:30 a.m., leave at 4 p.m. and catch a train to Basel.

As of now, I have no appointments for the weekend, but this may change if I find the time to phone people or if anyone else responds to my emails.

Things I will not be doing this week: eating, sleeping, finding time to breathe!

  1. Oh wow sounds hectic! If you’re moving because of Jan’s work could his work not help you relocate? Good luck with the flat hunting. I really hope you find something soon!

    1. I hope someone gets back to me soon too… I’m starting to panic! And all this relying on Deutsche Bahn isn’t helping. The train I planned to get today is delayed by 20 minutes, and the next one gets me in at 5 to 7. The appointment is at 7, and Google maps says it’s a 10 minute walk. If I sprint I might still be on time…

  2. Bahahaha! This sounds like my life. But… guess what? We FINALLY bought a home! I just posted about it last night. Huge weight lifted from my shoulders. Good luck to you Bev!

      1. Yep, I know all about NO time. I was home a sum total of 12 days in February, inclusive of weekends, thanks to my work/travel schedule. How I managed to buy a house during that time boggles even my mind.
