September is around the corner and there are so many exciting things happening, that I really wanted to share them with you.
The first and most exciting thing, will obviously be the arrival of our new wirehaired dachshund girl. I have been cleaning & re-organising the house all morning and been looking online for puppy beds, puppy bowls & dog leads. I am having to pinch myself whilst doing all these things, as I still can’t quite believe that from the crazy cat lady I once was, I will now be a doggy mama.
The second thing that is coming up is a mini weekend getaway to Amsterdam, which both hubby and I are looking forward to. It’s been 10 years since I last visited Amsterdam, so it will be nice to see what has changed and go exploring with my love.
Lastly, I have been notified by my boss that from next week there will be a new colleague working alongside me. As much as this is actually for the best, I am not looking forward to having to work alongside another person. Being the introvert that I am, I have enjoyed working on my own. Unfortunately though there will be a huge increase in seminar room set-ups from September (up to 12 rooms per day), so I will need all the help I can get. I really really hope that the new colleague at least speaks a little English or is at least easy to get along with.
The reality is that if I spoke fluent German, I probably wouldn’t mind having another colleague around but since my capacity to communicate is limited, this makes me even more self-conscious. Then there is the judgement which always follows (that I should be able to speak) and in all honesty I have really just had enough of it..People don’t know my personal background, so I wish they would just keep their thoughts to themselves. To make matters worse, my boss has arranged a leisure day for all the employees and this is something that I am absolutely dreading…Being in a room full of German speaking ladies with their judgemental looks, is something I am pretty sure I will be having nightmares about until October (the day of the leisure day). A little dramatic, I know 😉
With 2 positives to look forward to & 1 negative, I will obviously manage just fine 😉
Thanks for reading!
Love Athina ♥
