Hi there! You may have noticed I’ve been absent from the blogosphere this week. Or maybe thinking anyone would notice my absence is just wishful thinking? Yes, it’s definitely the latter. Nonetheless, I am going to tell you the reason for the absence that you didn’t even notice. I had to go to Frankfurt for a training course. It was all about banking/supervision, so not my favourite topic, but it ended up being quite interesting and (hopefully) useful. Obviously it was for work… I don’t go to finance seminars for fun! So I was away from Monday afternoon til late Wednesday evening then I had to spend yesterday evening tidying the flat, making the spare bed, etc. because we have visitors coming tomorrow – and Jan of course had no time to clean while I was away even though our friends are coming to see his choir concert! No, I am clearly not annoyed about this at all. Ahem. To be fair to him, he did also tidy last night, but if he’d done a bit on Tuesday and a bit on Wednesday we could have been finished by now. But enough talking about my boyfriend behind his back. On with the letters.
Dear tree by the balcony. I see your lovely yellow leaves already starting to turn brown. Stop it! There’ll be plenty of time for bare branches throughout the entire next four and a bit months!
Dear housework fairy. You seem to have got lost on the way to my place. If I put a candle in the window or something will you come and take over some of the cleaning?
Dear tea. Sorry I keep forgetting about you and making you really strong, then having to drink you lukewarm. It really isn’t fair, is it?
Dear weather. I would appreciate it if you could be nice for the weekend.
Right, that’s it. I’m feeling very uninspired today, but I didn’t want to completely ignore my blog so this measly collection of letters is the best I can do. Aahh… bring on the weekend. Only 8 hours to go…
