Sunday Column (67)

Another week has passed without being noticed. We came back from the wedding in Germany on Sunday night. On Monday it was bank holiday in the UK, so I tried to make the most of the time and the family went for a walk and chilled. I also felt very tired from the weekend, and noticed getting a cold 🙁 But no whining…. On Monday night there was the last episode of Flash Forward, a TV series I am actually glad about that it is over. You get hooked in the first few episodes and then realise that you aren’t interested. But you cannot stop until the end. And the end wasn’t great. Tuesday I went off to mexad’s first birthday party to Cologne along with my new member of staff. So it was a good trip, some beers and of course a lot of meetings and work. We came back late on Wednesday. Thursday I went to friends’ wedding in Essex. A lovely country / golf club atmosphere, lovely weather and Jen’s and mine first English wedding. We had to leave early and I drove, so we were home by 11 or so. That was my week really. Friday

Sunday Column (15)

Another week and a rainy weekend, at least most of Saturday and Saturday/Sunday night. Even some thunderstorm. Welcome to Britain. At the time of me writing this blog entry there is no news from little Colin to come out. Jen had some acupuncture and we are hoping it speeds things up. We will have breaking news on this blog depending on the situation. Also, we will inform you via email and send first pictures. What an exciting but also stressful time! This week was a busy interview week. With a flying start on Monday and 3 interviews on Thursday/Friday, I am now all interviewed out 🙂 I hope that one of the interviews I had will lead to a job. Again, I keep you posted on the developments. We got our Lombok sideboard exchanged. It had a big crack in the top piece and they exchanged it quickly and without asking too many questions. Their customer service is just great. So is their furniture. Nice to see that companies don’t cut down on customer service. Our friends’ Volker & Tini had their wedding this weekend and we hope they had better weather than us. Shame we could not make it,

Weekend in Scotland

Scotland the Brave – we went up to Inverness this weekends for a friend’s wedding. It was great. Finally we got out of the London mist and dived into the clear air of the Highlands and were part of an amazing day. A friend got married, the couple and the people shared so much love and happiness that it was a fabulous day. We really enjoyed ourselves. Although stressful at times to attend a few weddings this year, it is always nice to go, see friends, celebrate and have a good time. And at the same time having some time away from the normal everyday life. Saying that.  We came home to a paddle of water – clearly from the washing machine. So I know what I am doing tomorrow on my day off 🙁 I will try to write more often, I have been busy as usual lately but I think it is worthwhile keeping in touch. Please, send me some comments and some views. BigBrother did about consultancy. Much appreciated. Have a great week. Volker

Weekend in Glasgow

Hello, This weekend we went up to Glasgow for Karen & Lewis’ Wedding. Congratulations to you both. It was a great weekend. Friday we enjoyed some retail therapy in Glasgow – and Glasgow is great for that. Saturday, besides the wedding, it was so great to catch up with friends I have not seen for ages. So nice to return to a city I have not seen for 5 years, catching up with friends we have not seen for months. Weird how people develop and things change in our multicultural circle of friends. Today is rather slow. Nice Italian food in Glasgow and picked up a bottle of Dalmore. Nice bottle of single malt! Slowly getting into Whiskey again. Now waiting for my plane which is already delayed but hope to be home soon. Enjoy the rest of this sunny Glasgow.
