In my private life
Well, what a week!
In French we say something like “Quand il pleut, il drache” which losely translate in “When it rains, it pours” to say that a problem never comes alone.
That was basically my week.
Where do I begin?
1) My dog who was sick last weekend was still sick throughout wednesday, when I went back with her to our usual vet.
For five nights in a row she woke me up six times at least. She was miserable and I was exhausted.
Now she is much better but the medicine has her drinking a lot more and …peeing a lot more, at night too!
But it’s still better to wake up twice instead of six times.
2)I went to a drink to celebrate the reitrement of a colleague.
I was bewildered to see people kissing on the cheek and staying very close to each other with their drinks!
I refused to kiss (before Covid I had no problem cheek kissing) and tried to maintain some distance but the recommended 1,5 meter was impossible or I’d be rude to people. Kind of counterproductive while attending a social gathering right?
Well the day after, I learned that one of the people attending had been diagnosed with COVID… Cheers!
Now we wait, knowing that I did my best to still be careful.
3)Yesterday morning I discovered that someone had broken in into my car and stolen the card I use to buy fuel for my car. This is a card you can use to only one brand of fuel company and it’s debited from my account!
The car was not forced and I was certain I had shut and locked the car.
But there is something called “smart opening” (that is not smart but the dumbest thing in my opinion) where if you are close to the car with your key and someone just brush his fingers on the handle, the car will unlock.
We suspect that’s what happened just after I had unloaded groceries in my garage.
And let me tell you as I lease my car and the leasing company’s offices were closed on a Saturday I had to be really creative to finally reach someone who could cancel my card!
Lucky for me we checked, it had not been used since the last time I refilled.
I guess with the fuel prices reaching new highs now fuel is the new gold…
As you can see, the week was…interesting and I am ashamed to confess that I again have a ton to catch up with on the blog and your blogs! I’ll do my best in a few hours promised!
