Today I just had the worst start to the day. I woke up at 6.30 am thinking I would lay in bed a couple of minutes more and figure out what I should wear for work. A minute later I must have fallen asleep because I abruptly woke up at 8.40 am, 20 minutes before my call time to work. Bare in mind it takes me about 30 minutes to drive to work. Jumping out of the bed in panic when I finally realized how much I overslept. Stressed out trying to contact my work I made my way to the bathroom and only managed to comb through my hair and put on some new clothes.
To say it mildly, it was a stressful day. I arrived 15 minutes late but my customer was taken good care of, but I stayed 15 minutes late until my break. I’ve been home a couple of hours now and gathered myself, spent time with my family and finally made dinner so I could eat a proper meal. The last couple of hours I’ve also been working on tomorrows video which will be up at 2 pm on my YouTube channel. Next on my shopping list is a new camera since my old Nikon doesn’t want to start. Right now I’m filming on my iPhone and trust me, I know the quality is bad.
I can only pray and hope for better days.
The weekend is upon us and even though I’ve had Friday feeling since Tuesday, I’m definitely going to enjoy this weekend. Tomorrow I’ll have a couple of hours to myself which hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy to the fullest. Hair appointment, coffee, running errands – well, running is the last thing I want to do on my day ‘off’.
Fresh flowers for the weekend is starting to become a priority even though I’ve been so lucky to get the last couple of flowers from my wonderful and loving mum. It does something with your mood when you wake up and see beautiful fresh colors shine throughout your living room.
My sons cousin also has his first birthday tomorrow so I have to get something for him. Even though I have no idea what that’s going to be.. I guess I have to brainstorm a little. And tomorrow evening we’ll be visiting him and his family.
Have a great weekend, hope it treats you well!
Finally. I can sit down, relax and just breathe. Since I am a perfectionist and would like to have everything done right away, I couldn’t stop myself until I was done with everything for our new arrival. Now things are sterilized, washed, cleaned, built and sewn. We got out last piece of the puzzle today and now the waiting can really begin.
5 things I’ll miss
Oh, how I have loved feeling does tiny feet kick or a hand stretch.
Actually having an excuse to eat whatever you like has been wonderful. And suddenly getting an urge for ice cream and not having to go to the store and buy it yourself will truly be something I’ll miss.
Free back rubs and help whenever you need is a plus cause carrying another human is going to get hard.
Amazing thick hair that I haven’t had since I was a teenager. Really not looking forward to lossing it all again but it has been lovely while it lasted.
Suddenly you’ll get this wonderful glow and even though you might not see it, others will. Always good to know that you don’t need a highlighter to shine.
It’s been two days since my fiasco with the car and it’s not going a 100% yet so I will take it to the repair shop tomorrow. Hopefully I will get home safely today. Nothing really exciting happening when you’re not going to work but I did finish filming another video which will go live on Monday at 12 p.m.
For the rest of day I’m going to relax, eat good food and enjoy the moment.
That didn’t take long before I skipped my ‘one post a day’. It seams as if I’ve got to much on my plate but I’m trying to balance it anyway. You know when you don’t want to make that second trip to the kitchen or car so you manage to balance everything. But one day you know you have to take two trips because you can’t balance it all. Yesterday was that kind of day. I had to much on my plate and I tripped.
To make it up I will post twice today. I always feel unbalanced when I’ve said I’m going to do something but don’t see it through.
I always say that every new day is a new beginning. A clean slate. A plank piece of white paper waiting to be filled with todays achievements and goals. So today my clean, white slate will be filled with laughter and smiles to the world. With love and commitment towards my job. I will make the best out of today because today is all I have.
On the 17th my work had their annual dinner party, where we all gather to be together outside work. This year the chefs planned it all in secret and we had no idea where we were going. Being told that our bus would leave at 5 p.m and it would take about 45 minutes to get there. After some toasts the bus brought us to Wallmans. A restaurant with dinner shows and a night club. We were served shrimps and noodles with a spicy sauce as appetizer, fish with sweet potato and pork with potato, carrots and a hot sauce for the main course, and panna cotta as dessert. In between courses there were songs and dances by the waiters. A night filled with a great show, fun, food, dance and lots of wonderful people.
With a couple of days off to recharge my batteries I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing.
Since Wednesday at 1 pm I had two, almost three days off. I didn’t make any plans because work had really torn me apart and I desperately needed a break. On Friday tough, after not taking one step outside since Wednesday, I drove to my mums house for a dinner with her and my youngest brother.
We all brought food and helped to prepare it and in between the cooking I cut my mums hair. Don’t know if I just got lucky but the chicken was amazing, my own receipt that I just have to share on the blog.
We ended the night with a couple of rounds playing Uno, and I couldn’t help but to think about Oma, her favorite game.
