Ooops!

Apparently I have no more room for uploading pictures to the blog. This will without doubt cause a pause in the blogging while I figure out how to sort this without having to pay any Money…

Any good ideas?

Pre-100k-50k-bikerace

Yesterday mother dearest and I took the bus into the city to collect number tags.

We then dragged the bikes over to the brother-in-law so he could give them some love and care.
This morning my mother got her bike out.

We walked over to the boat stop.

And there I waved her and my sister off. Two weeks from now it’s time for our fifth 100k bike race. Today we where gonna do a 50k warm-up one. Instead I’m mostly sleeping on the couch with a sore throat, headache and a very, very annoying cough.

Totally feeling sorry for myself, and quite disappointed as I wanted to head out and feel the wind in my hair as well.

Food

Fish food next to the fish church

Gotham city is all about fish (kind off), so much there’s a church called Feske kyrkan (fish church). A visit is recommended if you you ever are in town.
Today I took time out from the home office for lunch with a friend, not in the fish church but right next to it.

What’s better then than eating fish?

Because my own bed is so uncomfortable

I arrived home at around nine pm last night after two intense days in Düsseldorf with work.

The body feels a bit weary and is not my best friend at the moment. My eardrum burst on the flight, I still have bladder problems (toilet every 20 mins everyone) and I have a cold that won’t go away.
Still, I’m back on a train towards Gotham city. I’m supposed to participate in a 50k bike session on Saturday, not sure my booty agrees. We’ll see how it goes. For now I’m waiting for the coffee and mini cupcakes to be put out so I can enjoy them togheter with the only woman’s mag I actually read.

Fingers crossed for a smooth train ride.

After Monday there is Tuesday…

One would think that after a Monday like this one would benefit from a quieter more relaxed Tuesday, but no! The alarm was set for 5:30 am so that I could pack and get ready for a 6:48 train (still think than anything before 8am is still night). Pretty impressed with myself for making it to the station with time to buy breakfast.

I feel like I’m pushing my luck with three train trips in one week, the trainjinx is bound to kick in and as this mornings ride went without a hitch I guess is the ride home tomorrow. However, when work calls you answer…or something like that.

After a busy day in the office, where I wasn’t allowed to take any pictures we headed to our hotel for check-in and found Fika in the lobby. If you don’t know what Fika is I suggest you Google it. I only took a picture of the first round…there was three in total.

After sitting around for a bit, enjoying the cakes we changed into our running gear for an afternoon run. Sadly enough I was the one insisting on going for a run because I missed out on a medal opportunity this evening.

Running is easier when there is a reward at the end, and today that reward was hot water in a beautiful view.

Then the great finale, dinner! The perfect way of ending a very, very, very long day! Fantastic dinner.

Tomorrow will also begin earlier than usual, however with a day like this I do not doubt that crashing will happen early and sleep will be deep. Peace out ma peeps!

Books · Life In General

I got mail!

A while back I fell for one of those Facebook things that goes around, this time there were books involved and I couldn’t help myself. With the hashtag Savetheculture there was offerings of free books.

Savetheculture

I manged to get three likes on this one (a bit surprised as I thought I had loads of book lovers on my FB friend list), and I think that two of them didn’t actually go through with it. Still it doesn’t matter as I pretty quickly received my first book;

Save the culture

And arriving home Monday night, a second delivery was waiting for me:

I sent my book straight away and with the arrival of the first book I see it as a success ( if you who reads this is my friend on Facebook and wanna play, just go in and like the post)!

Always look at the bright side of life

Monday, crazy Monday

Sometimes when I plan my life, I don’t think it through properly, like this Monday. Just the fact that I got up at 06:45 to catch the train home make it crazy as my alarm usually is set for 8:00 am. Then I for some reason keep thinking that the train will arrive on time, it’s very naive of me as SJ that run the trains suck at being on time. It also doesn’t help that I managed to lose the key for my bike sometime between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.

Lucky me the best neighbor on the planet became my hero once again as she let me borrow her bike so I could make a quick getaway when finally arriving home needing to be at my old job (still working there two days a week during the month of May) for a few hours. From there I then made my way to a meeting including a fantastic lunch.

After the meeting I then headed over to my new job, where I was supposed to meet with one of my colleagues. If Samsung phones didn’t have the worst battery time ever I would’ve known that he had changed the time for the meeting and there was no need for me to be there at all! Thanks Samsung!

After flying around the city all day I headed home as my new Mr Grumpy said he had the tools to sort out the lock of my bike…he didn’t! Nice to know that my new friends are very bad bike thief’s!

Even if the couch and the telly would’ve been nice at this point, I had managed even some more plans. A lecture, food and movie night with Lady T. The lecture was boring, the food was good and the movie I only managed to see thirty minutes of due to bladder problems (TMI?). It was still nice to catch up with her.
