Hello my lovelies!
It’s so good to see you for our Weekend Coffee Share! I’ve still got a bit of a cough, but I am doing much better than I was last weekend!
So come in, make yourself comfy while I make us a nice hot cuppa of the tea or coffee of your choice.
What have you been up to this week?
Karneval has officially started here in Germany, and Thursday was Altweiber, a day of Women Power. The big parades will be on Monday, and we’ll close the office on Monday at noon so that we can escape the traffic of the parades. I wrote a whole blog entry explaining all about German Karneval for the lovely Solveig, so check out my guest post from this week!
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I didn’t get much done this week. I was still off sick on Monday and have been catching up on work since returning to the office on Tuesday. I didn’t get much studying done, but I have read quite a bit.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I’m still not 100%. I’m still not concentrating properly and I could crawl into bed now and be happy when I’m usually an insomniac. Because I was sick I skipped a few meals as I just wasn’t feeling like it, and I’d also cut out lots of sugar. So I’ve just bought some chocolate and ingredients for a proper dinner and I’m hoping it’ll help me feel better again.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that my 60 Books Challenge is going pretty well and I’ve started books 10 and 11 (one is an audio book). I recently finished Aristotle And Dante Discover the Secrets Of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz and I loved it. It’s the coming of age story of two Mexican-American boys, who go from being strangers to best friends and more. It’s very well written and very relatable as the problems they face are problems any teenager will have faced, no matter what their sexuality is.
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that I’ll be quite busy (but in a good way) next week. Can’t say more than that at the moment, though. I’m also hoping to join a gym again, but I’m still shopping around a bit.
Sorry it’s been a fairly boring week here. And I have way too much to do to celebrate Karneval – besides, we’ve had storm alerts and the parades might get cancelled on Monday. This is it from me, but I’m sure the other Weekend Coffee Sharers would love to see you too!
Thank you for having coffee with me. Same time, next week?
