Just keep running

Today it’s going to be one of those posts that if you follow me on social media, or know me personally, you will have heard/read most of what I’m about to write… Feel free to move along, unless you want to know more details and see some extra photos! *wink! As you know, I went to Madrid last weekend. I took Friday and Monday off, to have a couple of extra days available with my family, and to be able to rest. On Friday, I was flying at 12pm or so. I took my train to go to London Bridge and take another one there to Gatwick, and bumped into a friend from work. We started chatting and when our train arrived, we got on it… or so we thought! It turned out the train before was delayed, and we had hopped on to the wrong one! My friend realised when we were supposed to make a turn and we didn’t (I was completely oblivious until he pointed it out). I had had my doubts …

I believe I can… try?

I’m an idiot. No, seriously, I am. The worst part is that I know it. It never catches me by surprise, and that’s frustrating. I am a full time procrastinator, and most of the time, I have little faith in me. I think the both are related. Actually, that isn’t entirely true, or rather, it needs some explanation. Normally, I have great ideas, ideas that I think are awesome and I can’t wait to get working on. The problem is that I usually get these brilliant ideas whenever there’s no way of working on them. For example, I think about some DIY when I’m on my way to work, or about a photo shoot when I’m working on a spread sheet. Or I think about a brilliant way of becoming more efficient at work when I’m cooking dinner at home. Genius doesn’t know any schedules, it seems. If I don’t forget about my amazing project, and I get to it, then everything is fine and dandy for about 5 minutes. At some point, I start …

There and here, and there and then back again

Holiday blues. Honestly, what’s the deal with that? How is it possible to feel so down just because of a few days off? As you might recall, first went on a ski trip with colleagues. We left early on a Sunday morning. My plan was to sleep for a few hours, but despite getting to bed, I wasn’t able to fall asleep. I’m guessing it was because I was too scared of sleeping through the alarm and missing the flight or something. The ski trip was a lot of fun. I decided not to go crazy on the alcohol and although I missed some fun nights, I don’t regret it as I was able to snowboard all day long. I’ve gotten much better (at last!) and even if I fell like a million times, I enjoyed it a lot. I used my GoPro camera to record my descent, but the footage isn’t great, mainly because I’m not an awesome snowboarder yet, so it’s a bit boring… One of the days, I teamed up with a …

Can’t stop, won’t stop

Happy Monday everyone! Isn’t it a great day today? At least in London it seems to be… We’ve had such nice weather this weekend, it’s been warm and sunny, and everyone is in spring mode already. Hopefully it will last just a bit longer, but oh, the difference the sun makes! It’s been such a busy weekend… I’m tired just thinking about it. Unfortunately, I was a bit sick on Friday, so I decided to work from home. It’s great I have that option available. I could keep myself warm and cosy, while still being productive. The main issue is, however, the lack of interaction. Since I sit in an area with lots of traffic in the office, I tend to talk to a lot of people at work, but being at home, I felt that I was missing the interruptions. Friday I still decided to keep it quiet and relaxed, since I was going to a seminar on Saturday and I needed to get up early. I was meeting my friend at 8.30am, so …
