Someone was telling me about a present they’re making for their grandson. It’s quite complicated and involves making various animals from different parts of the world. He’d just finished a group of baby seals.
“Are you going to make a big seal to look after them?”
“No. The North pole is full!”
It was the Christmas party at work today.
3 ½ social interactions and a couple of plates of buffet food later and it’s time to curl up in a ball under the duvet.
I still feel the evening was a success, I just need to hide for a while and recharge :).
Today is my birthday.
I wanted to write a list of things I was going to do over the coming year as a kind of birthday post.
I am very naive.
I sat down last night and within a very short time I had a list of well over 31 things which all have to be done before Christmas.
Perhaps, if I get them all done, next year will be really relaxing. (And no. I’m not holding my breath on that one)
Hello people 🙂 I hope all your Christmases were fantastic, and wish you a brilliant last night of 2016, whatever you choose to do with it.
I’ve just got back to Berlin and am already at the second ‘party’ of the evening so I’m going to put my phone away and be marginally sociable…
I’ll leave you with a picture of a tree we drove past this morning:
Isn’t it pretty?!
The whole world was white for most of the way across Germany
My colleague made me an aeroplane for my birthday. He’s been away, so I received it yesterday.
He explained the technical aspects and showed me how it works.
Two days later I still haven’t managed to actually fly it..
..which he finds hilarious 🙂 Especially because, way back when, he was in exactly my position. He was given a similar aeroplane of his own for his 30th birthday. This is his kind of ‘revenge’. Apparently it took him ‘a week or two’ to learn. I’m hoping for inspiration and talent to strike earlier than that. Maybe on Thursday or Friday would be nice.
