This weekend was sunny and cold, perfect winter weather to go on a walk, get your thoughts cleared up and have a chat over coffee.
And because I am adult enough (and my local park has a café that sells duck and swan food), I figured, why not feed the ducks. I know that they probably get enough kids wanting to throw food at them, but it was relaxing and satisfying enough to do this two days in a row.
This is going to be a short one cause I am currently having a headache and I should probably sleep it off. Also, how do people with regular headaches do this? I get a headache maybe once a year, twice max, and it is literally knocking me out and I am pretty sure it is not even a very strong one by comparison.
Last week I attended DeliverConf in Manchester, a conference all about project delivery or in other words “a conference for people who strive to lead, inspire and deliver value with their teams”. It had been a couple of full on weeks, so going to a city I’ve never been before and getting the opportunity to get a fresh perspective on things were certainly welcome.
My very first blog post last year was about my goals for 2017. I managed to achieve them more or less, though half way through the year, I realised that some of the things I had put on my list didn’t have high priority anymore and they started to become a chore rather than something I liked doing. This is why I am not going to set hard goals per se. Rather, I am aiming to change or improve a few things this year.
Yes, I am following the trend of sappy “goodbye 2017” posts, cause it’s good for ya, cathartic and, boy, have I done a lot this year!
As with anything, you tend to forget things that happened 1 month ago, don’t even try to pull out memories from 11 months ago. So instead of sipping on some gin, I went through my photos and blog posts to remind myself what I have been up to.
This year we’re spending the holidays in Leipzig, Germany. We decided it would be a smaller round compared to last year when we got both the German and Swedish side together in Fitou.
I like this time of year because for me it represents quiet, cosy days and nights with yummy home cooked food, movies and lots of reading and sleeping.
