Quite a few things happened last week. I was home both Monday and Tuesday so I wrote a letter to my pen-pal Risca, sending her a birthday gift. I did that on Tuesday… The stamp costs was higher than the present itself! Then I went to the mall (always on Tuesday) but guess what? I didn’t buy any book! Yeah, I can’t believe it either… Maybe because the book that I’m reading isn’t that good… As you know I promised myself to read 2 chapters or 50 pages a day but I really can’t with this one… it is too slow, narration doesn’t pick up and we’re always at the same point (and I’m on page 192). I mean, one murder in 200 pages? Okay there were three more before the book started but what kind of serial killer doesn’t kill more than once in 200 pages? and I still have 100… will he kill someone else in those few pages? So now I don’t know whether to buy the other books of the series or not…
On Tuesday there was a transportation strike so I couldn’t go to work but guess what? They cancelled it on Monday at 10 pm! So they made me loose five hours of work, my boss had to call for a substitute for nothing and to make up for the lost hours I have to work tomorrow. I hate when they create distress like that (and luckily I don’t live in Rome… Last Friday was hell because a local strike!)
Anyway, I started on postcrossing again , sent two postcards on Thursday and one of them arrived in Germany on Saturday… Two days only! I couldn’t believe it! And I used a € 0.10 stamp… when usually it’s more than € 1.00. I found this trick on postcrossing forum
Then I was in the store yesterday and about 7pm a strong wind started and we keep the door open but I couldn’t because the wind was knocking down everything… and then it started to hail… you had to see all the people running to get cover! in about 2 minutes no one was around… so much rain!
Next week I’m working 6 days instead of 4. April 25 is a holiday but we’re open on holidays (except for Christmas Day, St. Stephan’s Day, Easter Day and Easter Monday) so I have to work that day. I also have a dinner that evening. And I need to remember to send 6 postcards tomorrow
Long post! Till next week!
