    I decided to build a new garden shed all by myself. I have a lot of time on my hands since I decided to be almost completely retired and I think building a thing like that would be an interesting diversion. I'll wait till march to start the actual building since I don't know how winter would affect the masonry. For now, I'll limit myself to the theoretical part.

    good thing today has not happened yet but will in 90 mins: going home early and eating my last slice of Agnes-Bernauer-Torte. That's a delicious cake made from alternating layers of wafer-thin hazelnut-meringue and mocca-flavoured buttercream. A gazillion calories and worth every one of them!

    Yesterday, one of my cats laid on my lap facing me to get rubs. She gazed into my eyes almost the entire time.

    It's so awesome to be so trusted by her. :adore:

    On a whim, my housemate decided to order some Bassetts Jelly Babies for me on Amazon.

    They arrived today. :D

    Last week I started a volunteer job so I can gain some work experience and hopefully get a paying job in the next few months.

    ^ that's a good idea. Unfortunately, employers always want people who are 20 and have 50 years of work experience..

    I got an almost fitting anorak today YAY! I used to have one 5 sizes too large (literally, not figuratively!) because our previous office manager bought only men sizes and didn't take into account that male and female size numbers are not identical. His successor ordered female sizes for the new colleagues but didn't tell us oldtimers so that we got stuck with the oversized old ones. But now a few colleague have changed to a different office and so today I was able to swap my oversized male anorak for a female one that fits around the chest and has only slightly too long sleeves =) I propably still don't look respectable in my official gear but at least I don't look like a kid playing with is dad's coat anymore.

    Someone I don't know was surprised to learn how old I am. They thought I was joking even and they weren't trying to sell me something or anything...:rommie:

    Today was a surprisingly good day, after the overall disaster that was yesterday. Talk about polar opposites! This is probably the best mood I've been in in weeks. (It might be due to all the readily available sugar... ;) )

    Happy Halloween, all! :evil:
