New street

Our new office is a lot closer to the subway station than our old office. Just one block up. Perfect. This is the block towards my workplace and our office is situated on the top floor on the funny-looking building in the middle of this photo. 

We’ve been working hard all day – another 10-hrs shift – and we have come a long way. Starts to feel like we might actually be able to finish within not too long. Great. Still a lot left to do though. 

It is getting dark so early now. A bit of a rainy cloudy day which probably adds to the darkness. A few more weeks before we change over to winter time. 

Construction

Yesterday our new kitchen area was all empty, tidy and ready for final inspection. We brought a table in to have a place to sit down for lunch.

Today we got all the new furniture delivered so now this kitchen (and the rest of the premises) is completely filled with boxes and stuff that needs sorting. Puh.

Tonight my dad called and invited me to join him for a soccer game on Monday. Fun! Great start on next week!

Morning fogg

This morning my alarm went off at 05.30 and an hour later I was waiting for my bus at this foggy busstop. 

A very busy long day but everything has worked more or less according to plan. Another busy day awaits tomorrow. Then we will hand over the keys to our old office. Puh. 

My youngest made spagetti bolognese for us for dinner tonight. Delicious! He will manage well the day he moves out! After dinner we sat in the spa for a bit and now we’ve enjoyed a piece of his apple crumble while watching the last episode of the dragons. 

Apple crumble

A rainy Sunday – perfect for watching series on the TV after completing the round of chores.

Our youngest made us apple crumble for our afternoon tea. Turned out great. Served with some vanilla custard and hot tea. Mmm.

I’m making an Hungarian casserole called “Pörkölt” consisting of veal and paprika among other things. It’s supposed to be cooking for 4-6 hrs so all afternoon. Fingers crossed it will be worth the wait.

Me-time

A perfect start of the weekend. Me-time with massage to take care of my sore muscles and aching body. Just what I needed and I have another appointment booked in two weeks time to look forward too. Great. 
When I got back home the sky opened up and it was raining heavily for a while. My hubby made pancakes for lunch for us and now we’ve crashed in our corners to catch up on some of the series we are following. No shopping today due to my massage – saving that for tomorrow. Going to make a steak that I had in the freezer for dinner instead.  

Friday

Friday and this challenging week has come to an end. I would say we have completed everything we were supposed to and I feel contempt. Now a whole weekend to relax and regain energy. Tomorrow I have a massage to look forward to. Perfect!

I am quite sore today but not particularly bruised. Maybe it will come tomorrow. My right arm is hurting some – don’t know if it is from the fall or just all the lifting and carrying. We sat in our spa for a bit tonight – might help relax the muscles a bit. 

Love this sign with No-nonsense-coffee-guide. Especially the two bottom ones – Tea – Not coffee and Hot Chocolate – Still not coffee. Lol. 

Almost..

Puh what a day. Early start and worked late. But, so far so good. Everything is going as planned (more or less) and we have been really productive and busy bees sorting, throwing things away, organizing etc.

Had a minor accident on my way back home – guess I am a bit too tired, so I tripped and fell. Going to have a bruised knee and maybe a few other places. Oh well. People were very nice and ran to my assistance and to see I was ok. There is kindness in this world! I guess tomorrow will show if I bruised more than my ego..

Midweek already

Another day with hard work. Two more days of hard work this week with early starts and long hours.

Hubby is on a work-event this evening so I picked up a grilled chicken on my way home and me and the boys had a treat for dinner.

Now I’m catching up on some e-mails and other things. Going to crash early tonight. I am so very tired – my whole body aches and I am really giving this my all. Hopefully it will pay off with a smooth move and a great new office by this time next week.

Early start

We had an event at work this morning so I left an hour earlier than I usually do. A very busy day with packing and organizing but we are slowly but surely getting ready to move out. Unfortunately the new office is not ready for us yet so fingers crossed they will be able to complete within the next couple of days or we will have to work from home for a bit.

Made meatballs with pasta for dinner and now I’ve crashed in my corner almost ready for bed even though it is still early. Might continue watching “Cell 8” that we are currently watching on Viaplay. Quite good!

Sparkling color

Love the fall and all the gorgeous colors everywhere.

Our last week of packing has started and we’ve been really busy all day today. I’m going to work full time this week too so long day today even though it is Monday. Great start of the week and we got a lot done. 

So glad I made the lasagna yesterday so we could just heat up some dinner tonight. Tomorrow we have a morning-event at work so I need to get in an hour early. Need to hug the pillow a bit earlier tonight so I get my sleep.
