Pfft that week was hard! It took 48 hours for painkillers to kick in to lessen the grip of the migraine this time – I’m still having a headache and feeling dizzy, but am definitely better than last week Friday. Thank you all for your kind wishes, they made me feel a lot better!! The weather here is difficult to live with. It’s not really hot, but humid and muggy – people dropping like flies… what a summer! But it’s nearly weekend (+ I got 7 more days to my extended deadline- yesssss) and Stephi has not only come up with challenging Photo-Friday questions (although she keeps saying that we moan every week and still come up with amazing ideas), but she also had a blog-redesign that looks super cool and came up with a sweet little logo for the Photo Friday:
Really makes me want to finally finish the re-design for our blog as well, hmm maybe we can get some work done over the weekend…?? My list is steadily growing with projects-to-do-over-the-weekend – but sewing and a bit of writing up still has priority – the sewing only because I want to wear new summer clothes, but can’t afford buying much this summer sale…: -) Anyway, back to question-time- hmm difficult…
1.) Die schönste Ansage diese Woche? The loveliest announcement this week? After horror-news-weeks filled with one sad piece of news after the other, leaving us feeling helpless, the best thing of this week was that there were no announcements at all:
2.) Wofür liebst du deinen Job? For what do you love your job? Since we work in two different jobs, G’s going to say something totally different to me… I love that I can work from home (or actually almost everywhere) – last week in bed with a cooling pad strapped to my head…
But I love that I have the freedom to sit anywhere and I have my work-out-of-the-house-days and sit-under-the-giant-lamp-in-the-coffee-shop-and-meet-up- with-G-for-a-good (and sometimes much needed)-rant-over-lunch-break-days.
3.) Was hast du zuletzt bestellt? What was your last order?
That was last Sunday, I ordered pancakes – I also hinted that I’d like to try out an adaptation of the saffron pancakes from the Green Kitchen Stories… sometimes this works 🙂
4.) Womit hast du nicht gerechnet? What didn’t you expect?
I’m generally surprised about a lot of things (politics at work, people being unfriendly or the tube not running – although that shouldn’t surprise me too much any more…) but the thing that no one of us really expected was this:
Snail alarm in the bedroom – and no, we’re not living on the ground floor in case you’re wondering! We did have snails in the kitchen in a previous house – J accidentally stepped on one once when she wanted something from the fridge late at night and screamed so high and loud that it would have made any soprano jealous 🙂 The handyman, who came to fix something else in the house some time later, said that it was normal. (Normal?!?) We had our kitchen on the ground floor, no concrete foundation (as it’s common in houses here) and wooden floorboards – result: the snails would creep in from underneath the house. I can’t tell you how quickly I insulated this kitchen – duck tape, silicone, wood filler, you name it, I used it! We have filed that story under ‘things you don’t expect when you live in Britain’
5.) Deine liebste Kombi momentan? Your favourite combination at the moment? A critical grey
And yes – I do wear cow heads on my feet too… 🙂 click here to see other Friday answers.
