When I was looking at pictures from Stockholm I found one of the building where I used to work before moving to Singapore. Three years of my life I spent there. Some of it good, some of it not so good. As with everything.

Sometimes I do miss it because I learnt a lot. And I had some really fab colleagues (not saying that my colleagues now are bad…they’re not). One in particular I miss. She was my partner in crime on many occasion. Most of them involving a glass of wine. Or three.


Fingers crossed I have time to meet her when I am home as I didn’t get to see her during my summer holidays. We have to relive old times.

Building to the left is where my office was - I sat by middle window on the top floor. Had one fantastic view from there!

We finally managed to get out of the office around 2am on Friday, or Saturday to be more correct, which was a blessing. Took me ages to fall asleep though and then I woke up early and couldn’t get back to sleep again which was pretty annoying. My plans of lying by the pool was spoilt as well as the weather decided to continue being in a bad mood, which resulted in one of the worst thunderstorms I’ve experienced here in Singapore on Saturday. Was kind of cozy though snuggling up in the sofa watching movies. Spent the entire weekend with mum, decided I totally needed to shut off from everything so didn’t even answer my phone or anything which was just sooo nice.

With the weather being as it was we ended up doing a bit of shopping as well, I had to see if I could find a dress for a wedding at the end of the month and to my big surprise I found the perfect one. Not easy trying to find something summery in October, not even in a country like Singapore. Happy, happy.

Apart from that, it was one of the most relaxed weekends I’ve had in a really long time so feel rather re-charged and ready to tackle this week. So far it has started pretty good, there are a few changes that needs to be done to the things we did on Friday but as we have the base in place it’s just a bit of tweaking and re-phrasing of stuff so the pace is less hectic. Fingers crossed I might add. Better safe than sorry you know.

Oh, yesterday was also an anniversary for me. It’s been three years since I moved to Singapore. Can’t believe it’s been that long. Time really do fly when you are having fun….

What a week!

It’s almost 01.30 and I’m still at work. Cannot really say this is my preferred way to spend a Friday night/evening. Desperation got us to open a bottle of wine so that helps a little bit. So does the music I decided to put on full blast to keep us awake. The end of the night is not fully in sight yet but keeping my fingers crossed that we do get out of here within the next hour or so. Wishful thinking maybe. Rather put in a few extra hours tonight though than having to come in working over the weekend, that would completely screw up my weekend – this is the first one where I have absolutely nothing planned so I was to spend it with mum whom I’ve neglected immensely. Hopefully I still can.

I’m just praying that next week will be better than this one….

Not happy

Nope, today has for sure not been better than the other days this week. It’s been far worse. And it doesn’t look like it’s gonna brighten up either as, instead of relaxing on the couch infront of a DVD, I will spend the evening in the office. Yay.


There is something positive though – the weather seems to agree with me.

It’s also in a bad mood….

Just one of those weeks.

Some days really do the best to annoy the hell out of you. Today is one of those. Actually, the whole week has been filled with those. Tomorrow doesn’t look to be any better either.

Got a bit of a relief from it all yesterday evening though. Went to visit friends and their little baby girl. There is no better feeling – or stress relief – than to get to cuddle a little one. And she was just the cutest – although she was asleep most of the time I was there but still. When she was awake she threw glances at Aunti Nettie wondering who that strange person was. LOL.

Tonight it’s a farewell dinner for two colleagues who are going into semi-retirement. Will be a nice and relaxed evening. Although a bit sad as we will miss them big time. I will especially miss my “big  brother”. Nobody can make me laugh like him. So am looking forward to a lot of those tonight. They are needed. The laughs.

From front to back

Did a photo shoot yesterday. Me behind the camera. Hard work but great fun and  keeping my fingers crossed the client likes the pics. As not sure which of them will be chosen I cannot post them, not more than maybe one. This is one of my favs.

I’m back!

I have had the most brilliant holiday.

Visiting family, meeting up with friends and a lot of relaxation (thank you foot for that!). Will not bore you with details – might post some pics later on though and you can see for yourselves. Now I’m back to reality, being a bit slower than usual. This jetlag thingy is completely messing up everything. Head is fuzzy and I have had enough blonde moments to last me a lifetime or two.
