Simply Happy

I’m in Haiti again! Can you believe it? So far I’ve only been sleeping and packing up my bags. Settling. No wonder, seeing how a plane seat is the only place I’ve gotten any sleep in the last 30-50 hours. Due to the time difference I have no idea how many hours I spent getting here. Or what day this is.

But who cares! ❤

Wonderful, wonderful

Happy to be back in Amsterdam, as always. I had some problems getting back and planned to write something hateful about Eurolines, but they fixed their mistake just fine, so there isn’t really much to complain about anymore. Other than that I had to spend more than two hours in the dark and cold, without any information on the whereabouts of my bus.

I didn’t really have many Christmas expectations this year and I didn’t count on getting anything nice – which might be why everything turned out simply fantastic. I got the two things I needed most in the world, a big purse and lots of socks! But I’m equally happy with the other presents – fifty euro, eye shadow, baby fisheye (that can’t wait to be introduced to you) and a book about Audrey Hepburn, with delightful pictures and quotes. The BBF who wrapped it in, also took the time to scribble down some lines on the opening page, and I though I’d share, because they make me happì:

Prettige Kerstdagen, mon cherie! ‘True friends are families which you can select’ is one of the smart things A. H. has said, according to this book. Word, sier jeg. – og for en fantastisk familie!!                  1000 juleklemmer

I too send out 1000 Christmas hugs!

 

French connection

Sucks. It might not be the case for the whole France, but the Internet at my aunts keeps going on and off, and even when it’s on, most pages load so slowly that I forget what I had clicked, and then, after waiting for ever, I get the most annoying message: connection lost (happened a million times during this half hour!). My Reader is also a lost case, and so is my Facebook. Which is really no problem, until I decide to update myself on what’s going on in my world to find out it’ not possible. So annoying. I will not try more today (but then I probably will, damn it!). So buh-bye.

Perhaps tomorrow.
