The past weeks have been very busy. Many expected and unexpected things happened. I received good news and very bad news. Today, I thought I’d sum up what I’ve been up to these past weeks and months and let you know what’s on my mind.
In May, we found an apartment we wanted to buy. We succeeded eventually but it took us months of negotiating and renovating before we finally moved in last week. So here we are: in our new home! I’ve still not gotten around to put all my things away so there won’t be any photos for now. There’s still too much chaos in some rooms (well, in my office mostly).
We’re connected to the internet, too, so hopefully I’ll be able to resume blogging on a regular basis soon.
At first, we were very worried about how the dog would overcome the relocation. The last time we moved it took her days to accommodate to the new place. This time I started crocheting her a blanket while we still lived in the old apartment. I thought that maybe if she found something in the new home with my smell in it to lie on she would be more at ease. I have absolutely no idea if it worked that way, though.😉
I finished the blanket just in time and fortunately it was a success. Whether it was because of my “love and smell” or just “because it was there” I don’t know.^^
Overall, the dog likes the new place much better than the last one. I just regret that I had to leave the old cemetery behind. I haven’t found a place of such beauty in the new town yet.
And what’s next? Well, I’ll do a book review very soon – and a giveaway!🙂 What will the latter be about? Well, fashion and Halloween, of course!

Only a couple of days before we moved, I received very sad news. One of my co-workers comitted suicide on September, 21st. We are shocked. He was such a nice and fun person, a friend to all of us, and nobody suspected there could have been anything wrong. Farewell, D.G., we miss you.
I’ve tried to make sense of his death but I can’t. Nobody does. I still hear him laugh sometimes.
