Friday letters – back online!

Well, my silence didn’t last for long… did you really think it would with a computer scientist for a boyfriend? He had already ordered a new router before I even knew the old one was broken! The replacement is bigger and has lots of bright, multi-coloured lights. I pity the next person who has to sleep in our spare room…


Dear K. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you have a spectacularly fabulous day.

Dear hot water bottle. You are quite possibly my favourite Christmas present. How did I ever get to sleep in winter without you?

Dear fellow train passenger. I really did not appreciate choking on your aftershave first thing this morning! Smelling nice is good; smelling like you’ve bathed in the stuff less so!

Dear healthy eating. You will be going out the window later on… today is the day we eat raclette at work for lunch! (For those who don’t know, that means cheese. Lots and lots and lots of cheese!)

Dear 12 trips. I haven’t forgotten about you and I hope I’ll be making a few plans for the remaining months of the year soon!

Happy Friday everyone! Have a fabulous weekend.

Normal service can resume (tomorrow)

Just a quick post tonight because I am tired. I worked hard all day (translated over 2,000 words!) then came home and finished an essay, which I have just handed in. It’s now 20 past 10 (which isn’t really that late I know) and all I want to do is sleeeep… preferably until next week, but as that isn’t an option until 6:40 tomorrow morning will have to do.

But… I have internet! The men from Kabel-BW were here today and after about an hour and a half, during which we had to collect the keys to the cellar from my downstairs neighbour then head aaall the way back up the stairs to disturb my poor next-door neighbours (who were having tea at the time) to get into the loft (the entrance to which is in their flat) where the men spent ages trying different cables to see if any of them actually caused power to flow through the cable sockets in my flat… yes, it’s all very confusing. The nice men did eventually manage to get it sorted though, and they left me a modem and a telephone, so now I have a landline and, much more importantly, access to my lovely, lovely blog and to facebook and my email and all those things I have been missing sooo desperately.! I worship thee oh Kabel-BW, providers of the internet!

And now to bed. I shall write something more interesting tomorrow. After I catch up on all my favourite blogs. I have missed you all, my dear blogging friends, and I shall be round to see you as soon as I can. Promise!
