The day the world didn’t go BANG

Well the CERN experiment started today and it seems the world hasn’t ended after all. Either that or I’m a figment of my own imagination, typing on an imaginary keyboard. Somehow I think not…
The world couldn’t have ended today anyway. If the world’s going to end I’m sure it will choose a day when I have much more exciting plans than just going to work. Probably my wedding day. Just before I say the words “I do” the world will blow up, leaving me to die unmarried. At least that’s what would happen if I was a character in a book.

I’m really tired today and can’t be bothered to do anything. The dirty laundry is piling up again and threatening to take over my room, but before I can wash it I have to go into the cellar and get an appointment. If I’m lucky there’ll actually be one free before the end of this week. (Have I mentioned recently how much I hate living here? Just six and a half months til I can finally get my own flat!). The good news is that the boyfriend finally has a washing machine – his flat mate’s sister moved out of her flat and didn’t need the washing machine anymore, so her brother took it on. That means once I finally get to the bottom of the huge pile of washing I won’t have to wash all his clothes any more. Just the ones he leaves here whenever he comes over.

I also need to sort out my desk and find room on the bookcase for all sthe books that are just lying around. Quite frankly this room looks like a bomb’s hit it. It’s not entirely my fault though. There’s just so much stuff – and so little space. I’m sure when I first moved to Germany I actually had enough room for all my belongings. It’s amazing how much stuff can accumulate in two short years. And most of my stuff isn’t even here! I still have an entire room full of stuff at my dad’s house. Including most of my books. See why I need to get out of this place – it’s the only way I’ll ever get to have all my books with me! Without them I feel like a part of me’s missing.

Oh well, I’m off to make myself a nice cup of tea. Hopefully the caffeine will keep me awake until Jan gets here with whatever he’s decided we’re making for tea…
