Bussing it!

It doesn’t happen often now a days, however today I’m taking the bus to work.

The Malmö police seem to be broke at the moment as they are raiding bikes without lights and handing out hefty fees, and my front light have been broken for a while. They probably need extra money so they can pay for the staff doing the passport controls when you arrive from Denmark.
Dropping of the bike, getting a coffee and then exiting the building, super efficient, only to see the bus leave.

So technically I’m not bussing it yet, I’m waiting for the next bus.

Hope you have a fabulous Wednesday ma peeps!

Life In General · When life sucks

One of my proudest moments…really

This morning I arrived home from a relaxing weekend in Denmark, and I should have realized that something would go wrong, the train ride home went without a hitch. I should have know!

As I was getting close to my building I started looking in my purse for my keys, and couldn’t find them, you know how it is; a purse full of crap (like 3d glasses for a grown-up and one pair for a child, receipts, and all sorts of other junk). As I’m standing infront of the front door, one of my neighbors was on her way out so she let me in, and I figured that I could just keep looking for the keys, my spare keys by the way, when I was inside in the warmth.

Apparently my staircase is being re-painted this week, so two painters had the pleasure of first seeing me turn my purse up-side-down, pouring the full contents on the floor. Not finding what was looking for, I did the same with my backpack – without luck! Thus, the keys, my spare keys, were no where to be found! Awesome start to the Monday morning.

I then proceed to try to call the buildings caretaker, since I’m pretty sure that he has a spare key of mine, he didn’t pick up the phone and the two painters, that was making quick progress up the stairs with the painting, informed me that the caretaker was on vacation in Sri Lanka for another week – no luck there and I was on my way to start looking for a locksmith.

That’s when I remembered that the company that provides me with a cleaning lady every other week has a copy of my key, so I proceeded to call them. It turns out that the cleaning lady comes in on Monday mornings to get all the keys for the weeks cleanings, and guess what! My apartment is being cleaned this week, so she had my key, she was also about an hour outside of the city not returning until this afternoon. However, as she is a bit closer than the caretaker, I figured that a key this afternoon would be better than no key – cleaning company promised to call when she had stopped by with the key.

Now what? I left Denmark at six in the morning to make sure that I made it in time for a nine o’clock meeting (at this point I had already called and informed my work about my complete lack of control of my house keys), and there was no way I was going to sit around outside my apartment until two (that was when the expected delivery of my key would take place) so I called my neighbor. She just happened to have a late day at work, so she could let me in so I could freshen up, leave my backpack and then bike of to work.

Now you think I’m one of those smart people that have my home key and my bike key on separate key chains, I don’t! It’s just that I have been running around with both my bike keys in my purse for about a month, brilliant!!!

It’s not the first time I lost keys, and probably wont be the last time…having a chip surgically inserted as well as a code lock on my door have been suggested! Now all I need is to have at least four copies made of the key I’m getting this afternoon, preferably as soon as possible. The only roadblock here might be that the only one that could write me a permission slip  to make  copies of my key is in Sri Lanka…

How has your Monday been this far?

Monday morning

Enjoying a way to early train this morning as I’m heading south from Gotham city. The new year has brought new time tables for my trains and my 8:25 train is no longer. So for me to be at work in a reasonable time I now have to take a 7:40 train! Crazy! It’s worth it to get Sunday evening on mummy’s couch.
It’s not that long since I arrived home from Gotham (last Saturday after almost a week and a half at home for Christmas and New years) however my sister had to squeeze out a child in the beginning of the year five years ago, so I had to go home again this weekend for birthday celebration.
It wasn’t that horrible since my present this year was a movie visit. Me and my adorable youngest niece (that has her aunty wrapped around her little finger (so does the adorable oldest niece as well)) had some time just the two of us watching The Good Dinosaur and eating loads of snacks.

She was also sweet enough to want to bring some home for her older sister. And I was forgiven for not bringing a present that she could open as there where others, her grandmothers and great grandmother).
Sunday brought Christmas present time, as me and my sister got a spa day for our mother and I got the same thing from my sister under the Christmas tree. We started with brunch;

Before hanging out in saunas with different aromas, the citrus tea sauna did wonders for my cold, different pools, a dark therapy room and then a light therapy room. An afternoon passes quickly at this place;

I really hope that we can do it again soon!
Now time for my train brekkie and a nap time before throwing me into what is looking to be a crazy day at work.
