Has it been a month already?

Oh boy, oh boy!!! I promise myself every day, correction: almost every day, I'm going to write something here and then ... no I don't find something more interesting to do, but that tricky feeling of laziness finds me and I leave it till next day again or better till Monday. FYI: I still read all my favourite blogs. You know who you are. If you don't, please feel free to march straight to the comments section and demand an explanation from me on how come you missed that memo.

Oh dear heavens, it's been buuuusy lately!!! A trip to France, new job, building up hours at work, still figuring out the pump (most of the time it's figuring out how to make it cooperate with the outfit I'm wearing, similar to Kerri's dilemma, which indeed usually ends with changing into something else), juggling numerous friends staying over on weekends, congratulating other numerous friends with their new borns, and reading the last Harry Potter book, boy that book sucks!

Dear HP friends, please don't be offended, I'm a big fan myself but I can't help it, I tried and I tried and I tried some more but I can't make myself like the last book. I'm sorry but if I had a kid under 12, no actually, make it under 32, which would make me a mum with a kid that is older than I am, but anyway, I wouldn't let him/her read it. It's full of violence and anger and violence. I can imagine the author wanted to make the last book phenomenal, but I think she overdid it. At some points it's way too much and on the other hand, sometimes it's plain boring. Sorry to outburst about a HP book, I was just so disappointed. I even switched to a different book in the middle of reading for some positiveness, because I was feeling like HP was putting me into depression.

Did I mention a new job? Ya, I did. Well I didn't switch companies, just switched jobs within the company. I like the company after all more than I thought I did. Although I have been looking for a job somewhere else but that search is stopped now, as I love my new position!!! Now I'm undergoing lots of trainings and my head is exploding from all the new information but I love it. Sorry can't tell you much about it, all the confidentiality agreements, you know. And no, I don't work for FBI.

Hold on a sec, quick bg check. ....... 4.8 , hmmm ... sensing time for a snack approaching.

So about the trip to France. I have turned 25 a couple of weeks ago, yap, big and round 25. Everyone is talking about a quarter of the life, I don't know, feels more like a half. But anyway, somehow I wanted to celebrate it big and fun and away just me and my boyfriend. We didn't had vacation together this summer so a long weekend together sounded very good to both of us. It has been quite busy and stressful lately with all kind of staff and we wanted something fun and far from every day reality. So first to thought came France waltsing in pretty glamorous lights. I mean you think France, you think Paris, you think romantic, right? Plus France for us is perfect, far from home and at the same time not far to drive (5 hours). Perfect! Then I thought why not add to it a bit of fun and go to Disneyland and voila, we have our perfect relaxing romantic fun detoxing weekend.

We had such a great time! It was amazing! All that time together and in the perfect location for celebrating birthdays. Mmmm ... :) We didn't want to leave. Just look at our happy faces ...

Oh and I tried on every hat and ears they were selling in Disney shops, and cuddle almost every toy, so much fun!!! I'm such a child

So wonderful trip, new exciting job, terrific boyfriend, I love you honey! So far I like the start of my second quarter, of the year number 26.

Yeah you looked happy! Paris is lovely! Did you visit Musée d'Orsay, the Sorbonne on the left bank, the Louvre, the Pompidou Center, Notre Dame, the little book booths along the Seine? Where else did you go in France? I hope you took pictures....

Heh, you are so cute in those ears. 25. You're just a baby.

I'm sorry you didn't like the HP book. I really loved it. I thought she'd done a good job building the series to its final conclusion. Starting with Goblet Of Fire, the books have gotten progressively darker and more violent, although they're still not a patch on some of the stuff that's out there for kids. I will agree that it was tough going at the beginning - slow and not a lot of fun to follow, but it picked up. Still. I guess it can't be liked by everyone. :)

I want to go to France again. Last time I was there, I was 13 and the visit lasted all of 8 hours, as we waited for the train to Seville.

Hi Chrissie!
I've been to France several times including several trips to Paris, so I've visited all those places more than once. I especially like Musée d'Orsay and I simply adore Paris. The whole atmosphere there is simply toxicating and inspires me to create something every time I'm there. I even lived in France for a while on one occasion in my life, in Rennes. I loved it, it's amazing.

Hi, Julia!
Thank you!
I'm going to finish the book and I'm pretty sure my opinion is going to change at least on the borring part :)
You should defenitely go to France again and for a longer time, it's beautiful! And the shopping is sooo amazing!!! :)

Wow that sounds like a great trip (and lovely pictures). Now you'll have to update your profile to reflect your new age.

I think I understand what you're saying about the last book. Some of it seemed to drag on and on, and some of it was very fast paced. I don't think there was any way to satisfy all of us with that one.

Best of luck on the new job and the new pump.

I love Rennes - the capitol of Brittany! So close to all those nice beaches.....

Hi Bernard,
Thanks! and thank you for the tip :)

ya Rennes is lovely, the city itself and the nature in that part of France, hower I was there in the winter time and didn't get a chance to enjoy the beaches, but they are beautiful.
