Gosh! My life has been MAD lately allthough, thankfully, all in a good way....
Almost all of last week was spent in a 3 day meeting in Germany with my category collegues from around Europe. Great fun but also A LOT of hard work!
My collegue from Sweden made my Friday as she had brought two of my favourite Swedish goodies with her!! My favourite coffee and liqorice candy! (*singing* "Heaven! I'm in heaven....").
When I came home on Friday eve, I was soooooo tired that I fell almost instantly asleep (too tired to think in a creative way such as "maybe I can use my coffee delivery to get re-energized??").
Early Saturday, I flew to London on a one-day-trip as I had to meet someone there. Again, great fun - but really really exhausting (came back at 11pm)!
Was in the area of Covent garden which is quite new to me... Rushed up from the underground,
running away from all sneezing people, in a hurry to wash my hands, terrified with a head filled of hypochondriac-thoughts by the posters I had seen at the airport regarding the swine-flu
(Should I have worn one of those air-purifying masks?! Should I have gone at all? Didn't that man in a yellow hoodie look like he had a fever? He had a funny sneeze! ...and that lady with the checked skirt could hardly breathe as she was hiding her mouth & nose in a tissue all the way from Earls court?! I should buy hand-sanitizer! I feel weird.....is this a fever?!)!
Borrowed the ladies-room at a nearby restaurant, washed my hands 3 times and guess what I see 2 minutes later?? A BETSEY JOHNSON store!! OH MY! Am I lucky or what?! Especially since I'm going to a wedding on Saturday and had up until then, no clue what-so-ever what to wear.
45 minutes later, I came out of there with a BIG SMILE on my face and a pink shopping bag in my right hand. Inside it - a gorgeous new dress from my favourite dress-designer (what is the swine-flu again?).

Now I am finally back home, eating liqorice in my sofa, blogging again and desperately wondering how in Gods name I'm gonna be able to find matching shoes and bag for that dress?! Anyone? Suggestions?? Please see picture! I have 4 days left.....
Reflecting on some of the things that have happened to me lately, pondering on things like "Is life indeed a "Truman show"?" or "Where can I find a reasonably well working crystal ball"? or "Is there a meaning to all this or is this really just random?" Guess I will never know......
Something I really believe that has also been a very frequent thought is something that I read in my Facebook "Minekey" application: "Try and fail, but don't fail to try!"
I love that as a new theme for my life!
That's all for now.... Hope you are all having FUN and enjoying LIFE!
Linda - Lost in her thoughts again.....and desperately seeking for matching shoes!
