Ah Friday… you wonderful harbinger of the weekend! I’ve been having trouble falling asleep all week, so you’re even more welcome than you would have been anyway. To celebrate, let’s have some letters.
Dear Yankee Candle. That is not what a crackling wood fire smells like! Have you actually been near a fire lately?
Dear weather. I take it you are trying to convince me that it really is November and not May at the absolute latest, as my brain is still convinced it must be? I can think of no other explanation for this constant rain 😉
Dear baked potatoes. I will never cease to be amazed (and grateful) that something so simple is so good.
Dear blue tits. Hello! How nice to see you gracing the balcony again. I’m not sure where you disappear to over the summer, but I’m glad you’re back! (But please stop trying to eat my parsley!)
Dear Christmas. You are sneaking up way too fast and I really need to decide on gifts for my family before it’s too late…
That’s all for today. Happy Friday everyone… and happy weekend!
There’s nothing quite like the disappointment of feeling like it’s Friday only to remember that, actually, you still have another entire day to go before the weekend. Repeat every 2-3 hours and you have my day yesterday. But now, finally, it really is Friday. Hurrah! How about some letters?
Dear godson. So, you’re a big 5 years old already! Glad you liked your present (I gave you a marble run because I secretly want one for myself).
Dear weather. Umm, you know it’s supposed to be late summer, right? You’ll have plenty of time for your cold and wind and rain over the next few months so could you at least try to let us down gently please?
Dear rainbow I saw last night. You were beautiful – the biggest (width-wise) and brightest I have ever seen. It’s just a shame you had already disappeared by the time I ran inside and grabbed my camera.
Dear Christmas cross stitch. (Yes, I used the C-word. In September.). I really need to get a move on if I’m going to get all my cards finished in time! It’s less than three months until my sister’s wedding, and I’m hoping to take all the family cards with me when I go to England for that…
Dear scales. Well, at least the number you’re showing my now is back to my previous highest-ever weight from before the holiday completely threw everything out the window. You seem to have stalled again now though. Let’s see some downward movement next week, okay?
That’s all folks. Much love to all who are reading. Have a great weekend.
How is it Friday again people? This week has gone way too fast, again. I had another public holiday yesterday (the last one until October!) and I was hoping to get lots done, but I didn’t even manage half of it. *Sigh* Anyway, on with the letters.
Dear kettle. I’m sorry I have to boil you so many times before I actually get round to making a cup of tea. You can blame your being overworked on all my work, okay?
Dear parsley. It was very exciting to put some of you in my salad last night having grown you from a seed!
Dear WordPress. What happened to the media space upgrade option? Apparently the only way I can get more space for photos now is by purchasing a domain. I don’t want a domain, just more space!
Dear weather. I’m glad you’ve cooled down a little bit – over 30°C is just too much for me!
Right, that’s all for today. Lunch break over… back to work! Have a lovely weekend, everyone.
I know I keep saying this, but where is this year going?! We’re more than half way through June already! Unbelievable. At this rate it’s going to be December and I’m going to realise I’ve achieved nothing all year!
But enough about that… letters!
Dear weather. You have a week to improve ready for me to show my visitors around Basel!
Dear mam/brother. Speaking of which… one week til I see you! I’m looking forward to it 🙂
Dear new wardrobe. Can’t wait for you to finally arrive next week!
Dear scales. I’m still not impressed with the number you’re showing me, but at least now it’s moving in the right direction!
Dear cheese. Somebody posted an article on Facebook recently claiming you had been proven to be addictive. Not sure how scientific said article was but I can well believe it!
That’s it for today. I’m off to the shops to find something for tea. Happy Friday, everyone!
It will be a short Friday letters today because I have a big, difficult translation at the moment and I need to cut my lunch break short then work longer tonight to make sure it’s done in time. I do get a long weekend to make up for it though. Thank you Whit Monday 😀
Dear Eurovision. I’ve purposely avoided all your semi-finals and things so I have no idea what to expect tomorrow. I can’t wait to revel in your cheesiness!
Dear weather. How very kind of you to turn awful just in time for the long weekend. (In case you didn’t get it, yes that was sarcasm!)
Dear new chest of drawers. I’m so excited for you to arrive next week! Hurry up, Wednesday. (Although, on second thoughts, don’t hurry too much. I want t enjoy my long weekend.)
Dear bulgur wheat. How did it take me so long to discover you? Since moving to Switzerland you’ve become a staple in our household. A delicious, easy to cook staple.
Dear summer reading challenge. The category list comes out this Sunday you say? Ooooh!
Happy Friday everyone. I’m off to eat a quick lunch. Hope your weekend is fabulous!
It’s the last Friday of April today! How?! Why?! Surely it hasn’t really been an entire month since we flew back from New Zealand?!
This week has been looong. I spent all of Wednesday being convinced it was Friday. Clearly it was not! It really is now though, which means it’s time for some letters!
Dear postman. If you have something you want me to sign for, here’s how it works: you ring the bell, I answer, you speak! I am not coming down unless you tell me who you are and what you want!
Dear weather. Cycling between sleet and bright sunshine every half hour is just weird, even for April!
Dear godson. Your mammy keeps posting photos of you on Facebook and I’ve decided you’re getting far too big. It’s going to be ages before I can see you again so I’m going to need you to stop growing up now, okay?
Dear cross stitch. I have lots of ideas right now! I just wish I had the time to implement them.
Dear children’s books. I’m amassing quite a collection of you. Now all I need is a child to read you to… 😉
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have an amazing weekend.
I am so unbelievably ready for Friday this week! The last 2 days have been so busy – I did overtime on Wednesday and yesterday I worked for 6 and a half hours before I managed to take my break (which technically isn’t even allowed, but I had a deadline!) I did manage to get out during my lunch break on Tuesday and met up for coffee with someone I’ve been talking to on an expat’s forum – the first time I’ve tried to meet people in Switzerland without dragging Jan along for moral support! I managed not to say anything stupid and make a fool of myself, and she had her toddler with her, which provided a distraction for my awkward silences, so that’s positive. It’s so hard making friends when you’re incredibly awkward and scared of social situations! Anywaaay… letters.
(I need a new letterbox pictures! I’ve used the ones I have so many times.)
Dear weather. You were so nice yesterday when I was stuck inside. Now the rain has started that’s set to continue all weekend. Thanks for that!
Dear clothes. I promise you will have a wardrobe to go in very, very soon! We have a trip to a furniture shop planned… (Yes, dear readers, after almost a year in Switzerland my clothes are still mostly in boxes).
Dear dishwasher. The man who came to look at you the other day said you were 20 years old. You certainly don’t look it! After all that time I suppose I can’t be too mad that you’ve given up washing dishes. I just hope your replacement comes soon!
Dear squirrel. It was such a nice surprise seeing you in our garden the other day. I hope you come back and visit us again!
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have a great weekend!
