Today everything seems in a way much better. Our roof will be partly redone when the weather is fine.  And I feel much better coz I had some time at the farmers market for buying nice things and afterwards I took a long long afternoon nap.

Pure nightmare

These last days had a sort of nightmare quality to them.

Working in four days for the amount of one week meant more than 10 hours work each day.

On Tuesday my landlord told me that he gave the flat to someone else and I have to find a new sleeping place. Hey, I lived there since some months! He thought six weeks notice would be o.k., although we had an agreement that he calls me before he gives the flat away - well, he did not call - he just gave it away. I was calling other flats and everywhere I called they were rent out. Next day at work I was like a chicken - and just happy when I found a room. Well, it is part of a mental institution that gives rooms to travellers, too. I have not seen my room yet and I do not know how bad it will be, but, he, it's a place to sleep.

And I got a backdrop at work - finally the papers for the job came back - I did not get it. The one I was looking for now since last year.

Oh, I forgot, our roof leaks and our bathroom is a mess, too.

And yes, I am fully awake.

Today we had rain and rain and rain. No sunshine around.

I am still in a bit of grumpy mood. My sis alltimes gives me the feeling everything I do does not count, coz she does it better and works harder. You see, that is the outcome when your parents let you grow up compairing you alltimes with your sis. I could write a book about it. Well, would be not a nice book, sorry.

Than I saw today that we had water running down one wall. So it is not just one bathroom we have to rebuilt, we also have to do something about the roof. And so on and on. It does not come very handy that I am away during the week.

Now I am tired.

See you next weekend.

Today - Sunday?

Since yesterday it is raining. Never stopping never ending rain. My sis and her boyfriend stayed until dinner and just went last-minute to the open-air. And they left today after breakfast - so we have 2 kg asparagus to eat for lunch. And I can do the things I wanted to do - smile.

Today my sis will come for an overnightstay with her new boyfriend. They will arrive for lunch and visit an openair-event here in Hannover in the night. You know I have not the best relationship with my sis - so I am looking forward with mixed emotions.

Just back home

Just arrived some minutes ago at home.
Am tired. Feeling not so well.
Was a hard ride these four days.

Going a bit East

Today I will jump in a train to head out to Berlin - they said in the East there is sunshine. I will see if it's true. Here in Hannover we have rain.

Freitag, 17. Mai 2013


I am home. Yesterday I had a doc appointment so I decided to come down early yesterday and take the day off today. Having a lot of beautiful white flowers in our backyard now. So much is in flowers.

Friday is market day here in our quarter. I bought asparagus, apples, strawberries, chicken and more.
I started with the asparagus. The chicken is in the oven and will be the next to be eaten. Chicken with bread and garlic crust, yummi.

These days

These days we went to the Hunsrück area to celebrate a big birthday and on our way home we visited two other birthday-parties. All in three days. And as you can see spring has arrived with beautiful colours everywhere.On the last pic you see an old fabric complex where someone had sprayed "Je oller desto doller" on one wall.

Good bye procrastination - hello learning...

... I have to start to learn for my exams in September. And my, I am not good in learning. Everything is more important in the moment I should be learning - the dirty laundry, a new cake recipe....

Well, not so easy to get me going.

I still have no clue where I will work next year. All my job requests seem to come down at the moment.

Big letter - no we do not want you.
No answer - no we do not want you and we do not care.

Well, I know I will have work, and I quarrel on a high level. Outside there are so much people searching for jobs. Yes, I know. Still I hate it to be turned down.

Today - Hannover Marathon

Hildesheimer Strasse, Hannover, 5.5.2013

15. Hannoversche Pflanzentage

Since some years I try to attend this event each year: Two days in a row more than 100 exhibitors in our Stadtpark. An Eldorado for people to see, buy and enjoy plants. You see in the first pic the row before the entrance I guess 200 m long - I used the side entrance where the row was a bit shorter.

Today I went there because I needed some ferns and some fishes. Well, I know myself good so I decided just to take limited money with me. So much beauty. So much different plants. So special plants. I bought four ferns for my garden and six fishes for our basin. And some more plants as well - well, to be correct I only stopped to buy when I recognized I could mot carry more - that's me.

Usual the Stadtpark is in bloom, too. But this year it is still a bit behind its time so we just had some tulips and daffodils.

Today - 1st of May

Today we took a long walk in the hills one hour south of Hannover.
1st of May = holiday in Germany and my hubby walks each year with friends. Today I joined them although I do not like walking at all. Well, I took my camera with me and took these pics so it was a bit enjoyable for me, too.
