An update....

Dearest readers,
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far? I'm back in Schaffhausen for the weekend and the weather here is amazing!! 28 degrees and full sunshine! Unfortunately, I did not spend this day by the Rhein, but instead had to do some shopping and also spend some quality time in the gym... I'm not sad about this though! In fact, I feel great! 

The first 6 working days are behind me! A mix of joy, confusion and excitement ;)) It is not easy to give a proper judgement after such a short time, but must say that my first impression is GREAT! The people are so friendly and everyone looks so peaceful.....not exactly what I'm used to ;) Hopefully, once I get to know my job better, I can feel as peaceful on the inside as they all look on the outside. 

I had completely forgotten what it is like to be a beginner and I keep battling in my head between "trying to find shortcuts to learn things faster a'la Matrix style" and "to just go with the flow and not be bothered by not knowing everything"...I know the latter is the sounder way.......but as you can hear, even after 32, I'm still learning ;))

Our new coffee maker from Spanish maker "Ascaso"
Currently, I'm:
Happy about: My new job, my new colleagues (who all seem so great and also a lot of fun) our new apartment, the new region in which we will be living and last but not least, about our new coffee machine from Ascaso (it's gorgeous!) ;))
Disappointed about: Myself a bit.... I need to learn that, at least sometimes, silence is golden! Ha ha ha! Can't go into too many details here unfortunately......
Looking forward to: Meeting the team in Milan (Italy) next week!! .....and right this minute, I'm also VERY MUCH looking forward to soon eating the thai-curry that Chris is cooking downstairs! He makes a killer thai-curry ;)) Am also looking forward to having brunch with Chris's family tomorrow morning.
Listening to: Lissie's Catching a Tiger album in the background. Still a favorite!
Hoping: Sincerely hoping that the fact that our new home is the next door neighbor of a cat shelter won't be a in terrifying cat meowing noises in the middle of the night =o/
Laptop bag "Audra" by Tory Burch
Wondering: What my niece looks like now!! I haven't seen her for months......she must have grown tremendously!
Thinking about: Buying myself a new laptop bag. I found one from Tory Burch called "Audra" that I'm loving but am not sure if I should go for it yet....... What do you think?
Planning: Ooooohhhh! Many fun things!! First of all, we are planning our moving out/farewell party in October. We will have a Nautical theme and I'm really excited about that! Am also planning a potential trip to the US with a friend (exactly when and where is still TBD). We should also soon finalize the plans of going home to Sweden before, during, or after Christmas.
Smiling about: Having signed Chris up to compete in a running competition on behalf of my new company ;))
Inspired by: The beauty of the is truly like a fairytale land.... Walking around in those surroundings make me feel so full of bliss and it also relaxes me...
Wishing: That the weekend was a little longer than just a couple of days..... It's not exactly joyful to spend the evenings during the week alone. Am really counting down the days!!
A new favorite from Betsey Johnson!!
Sad about: Not having had enough time to write "Thank you" notes to all my ex-colleagues who gave me some beautiful goodbye gifts and cards!! Also a bit "sad" about having had to spend over 4 hours in the car yesterday, driving back here. I ended up in the middle of the traffic jam..... 
Thankful for: All the positive, inspiring people in my life!!
Wanting: To buy this necklace from Betsey Johnson ASAP!! Gorgeous, no?!!
Feeling: Fabulous!! As if I'm BACK again!!!
