the last days i’ve been thinking a lot of my working situation and how it affects my allday and private life. i had some long discussions with myself and with my man. without going into details, i have been a terrible girlfriend, flatmate and friend way too long. and to be honest, the busy pre christmas period in my eshop is just the ‘proverbial straw’ i have been waiting for.
lets face it, i have a terrible boss at work: breaks aren’t welcome, there’s no end of work in the evening or at the weekend. in the past months there was hardly any time for fun at work or a ‘healthy’ private life. the good thing about it: i am that boss. perhaps this sounds totally stupid but as soon as i made myself aware of this simple fact again i cut the knot. an awful two-day-influenza on top encouraged me to make a new start. to take care of myself, my realitionship and friendships in a new way. next to that i want to give bastisrike a new priority and structure. an appropriated one. all that without rigid rules or fixed regulations. step by step. little by little.
to speak out loud at this place, helps me to push myself to go on.
a minute ago the parcel carrier delivered a package full of christmas goods from my mum. the world’s best homemade ‘plätzchen’ next to some fir branches and a tea advent calendar. a goog day to make a new start! more to come soon …
▪ a new and old passion: i’m listening to records again (another thing i brought back from home: my dad repaired my record player). a wonderful way to slow down. i missed that crackling. danke dir p. fuer den paul-tipp!
