I have had everything from a ten minutes bike ride to a 1 1/2 hours underground, train and busride. When it was over 1 1/2 hours I stayed during the week and went home over the weekend.
Now I am happy I just have to drive 40 minutes to work (one way) or more when the traffic is bad. I can use three different trains to get to work and that takes 20 minutes to 50 minutes and some walking. So I am on my way about two hours each day alltogether.
Today I drove to work. I decided to drive one day per week to work so that it feels normal to drive. I had my licence for years, but did not drive. When I started again I was really scared, I do not want to be so scared again.
Yesterday I had a bread for lunch and that was a good idea. It was after 3:00 pm before we got the first grilled sausages. To help my friend I had brought a salad to go with the bbq. And as a special treat my friend grilled some meat she shot herself last year - it was delicious.
Today I gave myself a special treat, too: I had fresh bread from our local baker, nice cheese and local grown tomatoes - so delicious - and do not forget - beer that was brewed in a little brewery some streets away.
Today we were invited to a barbeque in the countryside. My friend from university is celebrating her birthday. Good meal and nice chatter. Well, that was what I hoped for.
When she called to give me the time I shall arrive it was 1:30 pm - you know I am a bit crazy, I need my lunch at 12am. I can tell you by my gut if it is 12am. I allready thought about cancelling. Well, she is my oldest friend, but...
Some minutes ago I got the call that the barbeque will be delayed another hour. My friend had urgent things to do she had no control of. I asked if I can come on another date, but she consisted of today coz she allready bought everything for the barbeque.
I will go, but I thought about going before to our local steakhouse to fill myself coz it is allready 12am.
