It’s only thursday but I want to do a throwback to summer 2013. It was a great one! Between work I got to spend time with my favourite people. These two pictures take me back to the exact place and feelings I had at that moment.
As much as I welcome change in my life some change isn’t good. This morning everybody at the office was invited to my bosses house for Christmas breakfast, like every other year. A few days before Christmas him and his wife invite us over and make us breakfast. And so they did this year as well. But we all found out it was the last year. My boss is gonna retire summer 2014. And I HATE it. I’ve been here for two years and three months and I’ve loved 99% of the time. Like every other job there are some hard times but the people here are great and we’ve worked thought it. On top of my boss retiring, three more people are leaving. Two are retiring and one is having a baby. That’s cool and I’m happy for her but I’m gonna miss her as well. Her and I are the two youngest here and we’ve bonded in the last few years since we’ve been here. We started on the same day.
Anyway, I wish them all the best but I’m gonna miss them as well. I don’t think working here is gonna be the same or as good as it is now, once they’re gone.
I love my job, but the question is how long will I be here??? Especially since four of my favourite people are leaving within the next six months…
As you are reading this I’m at a Christmas dinner with my co workers. And this is what I’m wearing. Originally I was gonna wear a red skirt with a black top and boots but I couldn’t find the skirt anywhere so I had to go with this, last-minute. I’m wearing my hair in a bun on the side and my makeup is very light. Got very many compliment on my makeup already!
So, I don’t really celebrate Christmas the way a christian does but I still put up a tree, decorate my house, and buy Christmas gifts for a few people. This year I’ve been super stressed about Christmas shopping. I don’t know what to get people and I’ve also not had time to go and look around the stores. Haven’t been shopping in a while. Well, a few weeks but for me that’s a long time. Finally today I’ve started to look around and found a few things…
This weekend I went back home for a birthday party. It was my old friends 30th birthday. By old I don’t mean she’s old because she’s 30 but because I’ve known her since I was 9, almost 20 years. We’ve been through a lot together but being there for the big moments means a lot. I was there for her 18th birthday. The day she got married, her babyshower. Yeah, all the big milestones in her life. And this weekend was no exception. Of course I was gonna be there. Almost died getting there but in the end it was all worth it. This weekend a huge storm hit and driving there and back wasn’t the easiest thing to do but I was super careful and after all, I’ve driven on Swedish roads for 10 years, I know how it is. All in all, a great weekend with family and friends, old and new!!!
I hate this, I really do. Being sick and not being able to do stuff kills me. LOL. Yesterday I made myself go to work. Sat here all day and tried my very best. Made it through the day. Picked up some food on the way home and after dinner I pulled out all my Christmas and New Years decorations and decorated my house. It was fun. Love the red lights. I’ll snap some pictures to show you. This morning I was at work by 7.20, that’s a good indication of me feeling much better. This weekend I’m supposed to go back to my hometown to hang out with friends and attend a birthday party for two 30-year-olds. BUT, there is a storm warning and I might just stay home. I do not want to be out on these Swedish roads during a storm, trust me!
