So it’s been a while eh?
Life has been a mixture as usual.
Work = horrible. We had a computer system changeover at the end of October and things didn’t exactly go according to plan. It’s annoying when you don’t get the things that you want, but despite the fact that Christian books are not oxygen or food or anything that could really be described as ‘essential’ the reaction of some of the customers has been… unpleasant.
It’s sad really, especially when you consider that the majority of people who I work with aren’t Christians. So now the wonderful witness that they’re experiencing is Christian after Christian shouting, swearing and generally acting like the world has come to end because their books are two days later arriving than normal. To be fair, not everyone is that bad, and some people are really nice and understanding, but sadly it’s the horrible customers who my colleagues remember.
Message for all STL customers – be nicer.
In other news – I had an awesomely lovely weekend in Bonn with the
beautiful Mrs Jaeschke and Miss Thornton. We went Christmas market shopping and ate lovely food and talked – a lot. It was totally amazing!
So lovely to see the girls – it’s just so weird to think that it was a year and a half ago when we were all back at uni. In some ways it feels like hardly any time but in other ways it seems like years ago. Hannah’s all grown up and married, Fiona’s all professional and impressive with her fancy Brussells job (and the new boyfriend!) and I’m about to move to the other side of the world.
Summary: odd, but cool.
And on the subject of moving to the other side of the world. That’s happening in less than a month. In fact, assuming that my visa arrives on time, I’ll be heading out there in 25 days. Which is really not very long.
Summary: mixture of exciting and proper scary biscuits.
