... I am still alive...

... but I am waiting for the up moment to come back!

My weekend was horrible!!! as in fact my friday too!!!
And this week is up to no good!
Nothing seems to work fine, it is way too cold and wet, I cant run under such rain or freezing wind... I can't wait to come back to Amsterdam... at least when is cold like this there, I have someone to warm me up... here all I have is...

Ah! But I did find I bakery that has the most amazing chocolate donuts ever!!!

So, I am down, and work looks like sh*t... but I do have amazing hands!!! (by friday I got me a new hand cream) and some sweet to warm me up!
Who know... luck turned a week ago... it is time to turn back...

In meanwhile you can enjoy my view!

ups and downs

Ah... the ups and downs of a week!

Well, as some of you know, I am in Erlangen... came to spend a couple of weeks to work with the software group in here...
I've arrived last sunday evening and went straight to the hotel with a package of salad and a bottle of coke... even though the first thing I saw, once out of the train station, was a big mall, and some stores, it was sunday 6pm and most of everything was closed down.

The ride was fast (the taxi one, the train one was a total of 8hrs... Thank God the German trains are spacious!!! :-) )... and the hotel looks good!
Well, the hotel is close to a high way but it has good windows, I can't hear anything from inside the hotel... and even being in the middle of nowhere, it does have some basic needs close by, like a market, a pharmacy, one restaurant and bus stops!

By tuesday I started "running" in the mornings! And gave up coke! (yes... again... I need to make sure I will still fit in my dress by may!!!)
And since monday I've been able to get up at 7:15! (I need those 15min to lazy in bed convincing myself I do need to get up and "run")

And so, for my astonishment,  by thursday, I've notice that I am glowing! A health glow that I didn't know it was really truth! (hahahha)

Anyway... as it goes, ups and downs, ups and downs (is all ups and downs)... today is friday (I still got up at 7:15 and went "running") and I am in this middle of nowhere (Pieter can only come next weekend, but hecomes! :-D ) and it is raining and it is dark and grey and I do suffer from SAD, and I don't have my lights with me...

Even though I ran, I had my hot shower and a nice breakfast and work seems running smoothly... I am crying all over the place! and feeling like s**t! With horrible hands and nails...

It is all ups and downs, ups and downs...

But ok!
The working day should get to its end, soon, and nothing that a visitation to a mall, full of lights and nice food, won't solve it! (I hope... cause this weather came to stay!!! and is not even 13th yet!!! :-O )

Well well well...
So, a happy friday night to everyone... and I will try to make the best of it ;-)
