Thats it......now exhale *whoooosh*
The trip to Zurich was an omen of things to come. Where to begin.....
My car had to be taken to the Audi garage while I was in Zurich, but thankfully one of the building workers took it in for me so I did not need to handle the Swiss-German garage speak - nightmares!
I never really did see the hotel room and absolutely nothing of Zurich aside from the office, hotel restaurant, Starbucks and as I said, to some extent my hotel room. Every day I was out of my room before 8 and standing in Starbucks to grab a Strawberries & Cream Frappachino....I had to walk past Starbucks which was connected to the hotel lobby so how could I resist? I then would spend the next 14 to 15 hours at the office. When I would leave about 10:30 / 11:00 to head to the hotel with a colleague who was also staying there where we would go to the restaurant with out PCs and continue working using the wireless connection. I would stumble into my hotel room at about 12:30 / 1 am where I would call the boyfriend to tell him good night and then promptly pass out to be rudely awoken at 7:00 to start it all over again.
The crocheting that I brought with me never saw the light of day....nor the hotel lights at night.
Friday ended at 6:00pm where I then sprinted for my car and began the 6 hour drive back to Brussels.
I was so tired by the time I made it home and utterly exhausted that I could not sleep. I kept waking up talking about work and thigns that I had hoped I had done etc.
Its over for a few days. I can only hope that the next rounds of submissions are easier and I can have some sanity at the end of October left!
I was able to do something crafty this weekend. I've been scrambling like mad to make some Christmas ornaments. The ones that I sent in August to my swap partner have gone MIA so I am making new ones to send. Here are the ones I made for her yesterday:
Are they not cute? My Grandmother made similar ornaments for our tree when we were young, except that they were made from felt, not crocheted.
Okay, more meetings - have a great day!
