Sunday Post #35 – Everything went really fast

DSCN3049.JPGThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This way, I can tell you a little about my week and sum up what happened on the blog and everything else that I find interesting.

This week on the blog

Next week on the blog

  • Review: War of the Words by H. G. Wells
  • Bookshelf reorganization
  • Weekend in Cologne


Suddenly, everything went really fast. This Friday I got a call from the institution telling me they had all the papers they needed (i.e. the police check) and I could come sign my contract next week and start the 15th: that’s this Wednesday! All of a sudden I have a job! And can start immediately!

Luckily I can ease into it, because I already have my first holidays after two weeks. Due to the fact that vacation to Scotland was already booked.

On top of that, my boyfriend went really fast. Literally: he had a bike race. I stood just 100 meters from the start and didn’t even spot him flying by. There were too many other people doing the same thing. Right now, I’m in our hotel in Cologne, waiting for him to get back, using my time to write some blog post. Or at least, this one, and then some more reading. The weather isn’t very good and most shops are closed on Sundays, so there isn’t much use going into town. We already did that yesterday.

Of course, the only thing I wanted to buy: a bar of shampoo at Lush, was sold to me by a Dutch guy working in the store there. There is no getting away from your fellow Dutchmen.

Apart from that, I made a new plant pot, with an old plastic tub and a little bit of the curtains I had left from outside. Now, my tomato plant can grow a bit more.

That’s it for this week. I hope you all had a great week too! Happy reading!

Ps. that picture is from the hotel ‘library’; in the afternoon there’s even snacks there and coffee and tea, for when you just want to hang out!

    1. Haha yes, if I didn’t already have holidays planned it would be a while before I could officially take them, so I’m quite happy those days were set already.
