#19 2018 Just an ordinary Friday

I left you yesterday with my magical run, after that it was back to work like the diligent little worker I am. Then afterwards I met up with Mr Grumpy II for some yum, yum.

IMG_20180118_174102.jpgThen after a quick snack I met up with one of the colleagues for Pub quiz…where I had so much fun (and we did real good, the winners scored 25 and we had 22) that I totally forgot to take pictures.

Even though it didn’t end up being a late night, I still accidentally turned my alarm off this morning and did a rush to work (past 7/11 for coffee since I forgot to set the coffee maker last night). In the rush I also forgot all about smoothie and lunch so I had a good excuse for sushi lunch, not too shabby.

IMG_20180119_115207.jpgSince it’s Friday and I was sent a free gift in the coffee place app, why not another fancy coffee before heading back to the office to sit of the rest of the day?

I did a fairly short day today as my couch was calling my name, and that’s where I spent the evening. Feet up, watching crap TV while playing quality games. It’s what I call the perfect Friday eve, even when friends are trying to convince you to come out and eat dinner at your favourite burger place, the couch wins!

 

Running 2018

I feel better now

After dragging my running clothes back and forth to Germany without using them, it was nice that I got around to it today.

2018-01-18

It was a heavy run today, and of course it started raining about five minutes after I left the office.

Still it is better to have done it than not at all…yey me!

And this new set up with running during my lunch, eating lunch at home before hitting the shower and then back to work, is fantastic! I’m hoping that I will be able to keep it up.

#18 2018 No magic here

When the alarm went of at 7 am yesterday morning, I had one look out the window, changed the time for 8 and went back to bed. You could see through the window how cold it was outside, and my whole body was just screaming NOOOOOOOOOOO! And when the body says no, you have to listen.

The hotel I’m staying at wont let me book a room that includes breakfast anymore, so I did the cheap skate thing…leftovers from the flight down (I mean, I had brekkie in the lounge so can’t say I was hungry when on the plane…).

I was real tired all day long, and again the food portions at lunch doesn’t help as food coma hits before you even finish it.

The trip homeward was interesting, as when I was sitting at the airport waiting for my flight, my buddies from Las Palmas let me know that they were coming home for a bit and wondered if I had time to meet up. When I asked when they would arrive, they said: in about two hours. So we landed pretty much at the same time, yey for company on the train 🙂

Then I came home and sat down in front of the PC to give you an update, it just wouldn’t happen, my brain was total mush…so you got it now instead! Better late than never, right?

#17 2018 Too tired…

…to write a post tonight.

Germany 2018

Thunder and lightning

The train didn’t really get stuck this morning and I made it in good time to enjoy the lounge. It’s a pretty rare occurence so I really want to have the time to enjoy it. Breakfast anyone?

The flight left on time, arrived on time and I had perfect timing to the train on the other side, fantastic. And as I got of the train the sun was shining, imagine that all my Swedish peeps, remember what that feels like?

Then it went downhill from there, at least when it came to the weather. I hadn’t been in the office for long when the first thunderstorm hit, nice to be indoors when it happened and it made for pretty pictures.

Taking the morning flight mean that there’s not that long until it’s time for lunch, and for the life of me I can’t get over the German portions…I get overwhelmed every time.

According to the run schedule today is a run day, and I had every intention to go out for a run. I was a bit worried that I would be too tired after work, however after I checked in to my hotel the booty wanted to run, then I looked outside. I’m telling you that German winter rain is worse than Swedish winter rain as again it came with a proper thunderstorm.

As I got into my book, listening to the thunder and rain outside I was real happy that I didn’t give it a go.

To round of this already long day, I went out for a former colleague to this real nice greek place. Note to one self for future restaurant visits…remember to bring your wallet!

I’ve been back at the hotel long enough to finish yet another dirty book and should really try to get some sleep. I’m hoping that the weather will magically be better tomorrow morning, and with the help of even more magic, I will want to go for a morning run.

#16 2018 Early bird

Went for a big shop after work yesterday so now the fridge is full and there’s some real nice chili in the freezer.

That didn’t add to the joy of a super early morning.

Sitting on a train for a plane with my small coffee doing my best to not fall back asleep.

According to the app my flight is one minute delayed, as I really find that pushing it they better hope that there’s no additional delay!!

Wait, did I mention that I accidentally have FastTrack and lounge this morning, I guess a few extra minutes won’t hurt…

#15 2018 The trainjinx strikes again

Last night I was lulled into a false sense of security as the train left on time and the trip went real smooth, until…right outside of Lund which is about ten minutes out from home station. All of the sudden the train just stopped, and we ended up standing still for about half an hour before rolling again. Thus, a late arrival home with 35 minutes.

I have started counting the time spent due to delayed trains, it’s going to be interesting to see how much it actually adds up to. If you are reading this on a mobile device you can see the total at the end of the post, on a computer it’s on your top right hand side.

Delayed trains

This morning I had to get out of bed even if I easily could have slept another hour (always have some troubles sleeping when arriving home late on the train, adding on to the normal problems with falling asleep that I have) in order to walk to the police station and get myself a national ID card.

I will be travelling to Germany pretty much every other week this spring and I don’t want to have to remember my passport every time.

Before heading out the door I did, in my very sleepy state, remember the smoothie and coffee. I’m proud of myself for sticking with it…healthy and economical and all.
