Tomorrow

Artignosc sur Verdon We’ll be on the road in less than 24 hours. Please excuse the recent lack of posts here. There’s been too much going on and too many nights when I went to bed a lot earlier than I usually do. Let’s hope it will all get better soon.

Counting the Days

In less than week (about four and a half days actually) we’ll be on out way to France. You have no idea how happy I will be once we’re in the car and on the road. Naturally there are lots of projects right now all of which have some sort of a deadline, so I’ll […]

Because Caitlin Said So…

Okay, so here there are… all the bento lunches I took the time to photograph so far. Click on the pictures for a detailed information on flickr. I’m both too lazy and too tired to type it up again. It doesn’t vary as much as I want it to, but now I always have healthy […]

I Want to Crawl into Bed and Put a Blanket Over My Head

The title says it all. Ever had one of these days which just really sucked? Mine lasts for about a week now. If our vacation wasn’t so close ahead I wouldn’t know what to do. Blame that for the lack of superhappy posts (or, in fact, any posts at all) lately. This job is trying […]

Yet. Just don’t. Trust me on this. (But they have little Hello Kitty mayonnaise cups.) Shut up. (Like […]

The Silver Lining

This week has been one of the worse ones so far. Somehow I just don’t like work right now, I’m constantly complaining, the weather changed from sunny and warm (well, hot actually) to gray, cold and wet, basically: It was just not my week. Andreas, Winnie and I kept bitching about mostly everything in emails […]

Fresh Farm Food

On Saturday we made something remotely resembling a round trip through the villages around our town. A co-worker had told me where to find farms selling their products in little shops, so we tried to find the ones she told me about and were more than successful. We stopped at three farms, offering meat, vegetables, […]

Explain This to Me, Please

I think I’d rather feel stupid than superior. At least when it comes to work. The explanation is very simple: If I feel stupid that probably means that I’m working along with people who know more than I do. If I feel superior that basically means that I’m working and dealing with stupid people. And […]
