Friday letters – the OMG it’s September edition!

Just how is it September already? I know I’ve said that practically every month this year, but seriously, how?! On Monday, my little brother turned 8 and it was 5 years since I started working at my current company. Five years! That’s longer than it took to complete my Bachelor’s degree! It’s also 8 years today since I moved to Germany “properly” rather than just for an exchange year (if you’re wondering how I know that so precisely, I checked the diary I kept back then ;-)). I can’t believe I’ve actually managed to stay in one place for this long without getting restless! Anyway, enough of my rambling… it’s Friday, so letters is probably what you’ve come here for. Here you are:

Friday letters

Dear September. I sincerely hope you pass by slower than you arrived. I’m not ready for it to officially be autumn yet! (Although according to the weather, autumn actually arrived about a month ago…)

Dear little brother. I hope you enjoyed your birthday and liked your present.

Dear German supermarkets. Displays of Lebkuchen and Spekulatius are not acceptable at this time! At least wait until the kids go back to school before you start trying to wish Christmas upon us!

Dear Taiwan. I hope I get to visit you again some day… a week just wasn’t enough time to explore! We didn’t even get to see all of what Taipei had to offer, not to mention the fact that we only made it half way down the country!

Dear bubble tea. I tried you because when in Rome (err, Taiwan) and all that, but I definitely don’t need to experience you again. So weird!

Dear work printer. I do not appreciate your decision to eat paper rather than printing on it! Half an hour to sort out a jam was not in the plan for my first week back at work. Let’s hope our IT guy can fix it, or I’ll be running up and down stairs every time I need to print until we’re able to purchase a new one…

Dear Facebook. Has it ever occurred to you that if I upload photos in a certain order it’s because I want them to be in that order? Stop changing them around!!

Happy weekend everyone! I hope you all have a great one, and that the weather where you are is better than here! (It’s supposed to improve at some point… I’ll believe it when it happens!)

Friday Letters: I just want to sleep!!

I have been exhausted all week. Exhausted I’m telling you! And I have no idea why. I’ve actually managed to get to bed at a reasonable-ish time every night this week (before 11 anyway). This never happens and is the reason I’m pretty much always tired. And now, the one week that I actually manage to get some sleep (mainly because I didn’t have the energy to do anything other than go to bed!) I’m even more tired than usual. What’s that all about?! Meh.
Anyway… letters time.

Dear weekend. Welcome back It seems like forever since I last saw you!

Dear little brother. Happy Birthday for Sunday. Seven years old already… unbelievable.

Dear Bierbörse (annual beer festival thing). I may be exhausted, but I’m still coming to visit you tonight.

Dear Karstadt. Loving your British Isles week! (And thank you K for telling me about it). I came in intending to only buy one or two little things, but that went right out the window when I discovered the Walkers crisps. Chicken flavour? Worcester Sauce flavour? Prawn Cocktail flavour? Get in my belly!!! (I *may* also have purchased Digestive Biscuits and Liquorice Allsorts… and be considering going back tomorrow for Cadburys chocolate and some tins of Spaghetti Loops…)

Dear coffee machine. Suddenly, I’m extremely glad I used some of my Bahn Bonus points to get you. Caffeine will definitely be needed before I go out!

Dear work. You keep switching between ridiculously quiet – to the point where I struggle to find anything to do –  and stupidly busy… as in loads of overtime busy. Could you maybe find a happy medium?

That’s all from me. I actually need to do some work now 😉 Have a wonderful weekend everybody!
