Hallo, Mi Blog Familia!!
I just wanted to pop in and say…well, Hallo. And “I’m alive!!”
It’s been a harrowing few weeks, what with not having our own personal entertainment systems on the flight here (whoo, it was LONG), with the passport control officials detaining us unecessarily when we arrived in Munich (you know, people with uniforms…) and I wonder if THEY get detained when entering ZA with LEGIT visas, and with the delegations centre who never placed an order on the relocations agents, thus delaying our registration at the aliens office, thus delaying my actual start date at work….and for the weather that’s just so NAAFI (you thought our weather was bad? Huh, it’s nothing compared to Germany) and for losing my lovely umbrella (one doesn’t leave the house without one)….
*Sjoe, takes deep breath*
AND for having to sort out a zillion and-1 things with no help from ze germ’s (very helpful people indeedie) and with not being able to wear my stilleto’s anymore (actually had to go buy some comfortable work-walking shoes, Boo call’s them my “Heidi’s”, Urghh) and with having such a wide variety to choose from in the department stores (we invariably spend HOURS just trying to find what we need, then another HOUR for what we don’t) AND with having to search for another house ‘coz the one we loved slipped thru our fingers coz’ the AGENT was too stadig…and trying to stay away from the bakeries (there unfortunately really is one at every corner), else I will be rolling to and from work in a few weeks..AND and…(you get the gist, right?)
So, miss me much? ;-))
Keep well, and chat soon
