…and again it took me quite some time to post an update on what’s happening in my life. Sorry about that, but I guess it just isn’t all that interesting.
Let’s start with the latest news which are also the biggest news:
Carola and I are enganged!!!
On the night before Christmas Eve I asked her to marry me and she said yes. We haven’t set a date yet, since it still is a bit complicated. In most of Germany it would be easy for us to get married, but not in Bavaria, nope. Here we would have to go to a notary. They are trying to change that now, but I am afraid that it might take some time.
I had originally planned to pop the question on December 22nd, but she was off work that day so I wouldn’t have had to time to prepare everything. It was no biggy though. I lit candles, spread rose petals on the floor and knelt down before her with “Das Beste” playing in the background. I was so nervous!! I had planned to say so much more, but in the end I just asked her, ’cause I couldn’t remember anything else….
I am so happy that she said yes. The woman that I love more than life itself. She is the best thing that could’ve ever happened to me and I hope that I will never lose her, she is my life.
It’s quite upsetting for me that I can’t see her every day. Since I didn’t write anything since March, it’s also news that Carola found a job in Augsburg and moved there the beginning of September. We see each other during the weekends, but it still is difficult for me. I really hope I’ll find a job down there very soon, so we can get a new flat together. At the moment I’m only living for our weekends together. Though now it’s not even weekends anymore since Carola started working shifts.
Other than that I don’t think anything else is new. Oh yes, wait. I’m going to be “step-aunt”. My step-brother just told me yesterday. Don’t know much yet, like when the baby is due, but I am excited about it. Was about time too. Because of the baby and also because of the whole finance problems right now (Andi works in finance) they are leaving London to come back to Germany.
My brother will be in Beijing for about a year, so I guess for now I missed my chance for a weekend in London 😉
Carola keeps complaining that I don’t write anything on my blog. Well, here’s to proving her wrong. 😉
Ok, ok, she is not wrong, but yeah, my inspiration to write isn’t very high.
So what’s new? Carola had a big fight with her flatmate and now she’s gonna move in with me in 2 weeks. She keeps warning me, but I’m looking forward to us living together. It’s nothing final though, since we don’t know what happens once she’s finished with her apprenticeship. Her final written exams are in May and her oral exams most likely by the end of June.
Inbetween we will travel to Paris. Again. 😉
First we will spend two days in Paris and then three more days in Disneyland. So looking forward to it. I’ve only seen Paris once, when I was a kid, so I don’t remember much.
After Paris we will go to DÃ¼sseldorf where my stepbrother is going to get married in what seems to be a very big, stylish wedding (invitation says “Women are welcome to wear hats”!!)
In October we will celebrate my 30th birthday in a small hotel in the Bavarian Forest. Relaxing, hiking, relaxing, doing stuff like that.
And how can we afford all this? Carola won the Disneytrip, we get discount on the hotel in Paris, got really cheap flights and also get discount on the hotel in the Bavarian Forest. Isn’t it nice to work in the travel business? 😉
My new place is really cosy, though not everything is finished yet. No kitchen sink yet, my stove isn’t connected yet, and my washing machine isn’t either. Two rooms still need to be fixed up. And actually I’m slacking off doing the bedroom right now. But sssssshhhh, don’t tell my girl! 😉
Oh well, I think I have written enough for now and might just get started with work.
In case you’re wondering why I’m home in the middle of the day…. our boss sent several people home early, since we don’t have enough work for everyone right now.
I keep telling myself that I’d write in here more often, but somehow I never do. And I don’t really write much in my LJ either, mainly random stuff, more serious posts are quite rare.
Well, I can guess I can write a bit about my new life, don’t you think?
Moving wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Living alone is quite nice actually. Though, admittedly, I’m not alone anymore. Just a few weeks ago I got these two sweethearts from a shelter. Max and Lilli are brother and sister and about 14 weeks old. They keep me very busy by running all around the flat like maniacs, but when they calm down they are so cute. The like to cuddle up on my stomach, and keep purring like crazy. Gotta love them!
My new flat is wonderful too, while you’re looking at pictures, you can take a look at the flat, too. Isn’t it nice? My personal favorites are the gallery in the living room and the walk-in closet in my bedroom. Lots of space for clothes and shoes. What more could a girl dream of? 😉
Work is great, too. They put me on a project just a few days after I started there and I’m so glad they did. I met some very nice people. The department I’m sitting in (mainly for projects) has very nice people, it was very easy for me to make friends. Just a little over a week ago I had a girls-only evening at my place with two of my colleagues. It was very fun and I’m sure we’ll do it again soon. Only bad thing about it was the headache I had the next morning. :p
I really thought I’d miss home lots more than I actually do. But then again, it was about time I moved out from home, don’t you think? 😉 It’s not like I had to leave many friends behind, I had grown apart from most of them anyway, by having led completely different lives. And well, the select few I’m still friends with, I will keep in close contact with them.
Don’t really know what else to write right now. There’s nothing more to tell. Well, of course there is, but that’s more private and will go into my Livejournal. :p
Had my last exam today, so now I’m a full blown travel agent. I should be really happy about it, but for some reason I’m not. I mean it’s great and all, but it also means goodbye. On Saturday I will be out of here. And I will leave behind some new friends that I will really miss. It’s quite sad. I will try to stay in contact with them, but you know how it goes. Contact will get rare and finally fade away…
