I have done it.

So I went to my client’s event and loved it. Every minute of it.

But the way there …

It all started at home, of course.

My two-weeks-ago-carefully-put-together outfit fell out due to one fact I had ignored when doing the sartorial maths. Luckily, I conjured the next outfit on the spot, as you would, and I still had enough time to check it out. Unluckily, the second outfit wasn’t good enough, either. I did tell you I had nothing to wear?!?!

Like in a fairy tale, it was the third outfit, born out of necessity (aka 5 minutes to go) that was good enough and made me feel well, so off I went.

Only to find myself in an old train half an hour later, wondering whether the 3 guys next to me were going to drink all that beer and what the strap of my brand new bag was doing down there. They didn’t, they were rather nice while sipping their beer, and the strap had gotten somehow detached from the bag – without my help.That something like this should happen!

So now what? What now so? Now what so?

Ahhh, my brain cell went, you have some safety pins in your kaputted bag – use them. So I did. The bag lasted till I made the first few steps in the small town I had been headed to.

Do you know Karstadt? It’s one of those warehouses that are going to be abolished because we all shop cheap things online these days (like bags). Anyway, there was a Karstadt near the venue I was headed for and they sold me a most lovely bag within minutes, made all the sympathetic noises while I told them about my stupid old bag, didn’t wince when I used their surfaces to empty the old bag and fill the new one and wished me a nice evening.

I threw away the old bag, what else and had myself a nice evening.


What have I done?

For a reason I cannot put my finger on, I said Yes. Yes, I can.

Attend a Christmas party of a client’s. Next month.

Now I can’t believe I actually said yes.

The thing is, I am very happy in my moosing cave and don’t really want to leave it for other people. On the other hand, I really want to get to know the people I am in daily e-mail contact with. It cannot hurt.

So before an endless inner war broke out, I said yes.

Now I have nothing to wear.

And what am I going to talk about – work?

And what about my hair?

And how do I get there?

How do I get home?

Why did I say yes?!?



OOTD9: Party Time!

I must admit I don’t find the fact that we occasionally organize our own parties, just for the two of us, strange in any way. After all, it is nice to have a relaxed talk or a relaxing silence with someone you know while eating well, drinking merrily and wearing party clothes noone will comment upon because they get worn only for this purpose. Like really high heels: Continue reading

Favourite Album in 2014

Einstürzende Neubauten: Lament.

Bila je nagradna igra in zdaj je čas za zmagovalke

Na začetku najpomembnejše: HVALA za sodelovanje. Ne boste verjeli, včeraj popoldne in danes ves dan pri nas sveti SOLNCE! 😀

Čista, neverjetna moč čvekanja, kajneda? 😈

(Ne vem, če bom kdaj podrobno in iskreno napisala kaj o tem, kaj tako dolgotrajno pomanjkanje sonca povzroči pri meni … predvidevam, da imate dovolj (lastnih in drugih) zgodb o tem, kako je biti štirideset …)

Naslednja, enako pomembna zadeva: še enkrat se prisrčno in javno zahvaljujem vsem, ki ste me zadnje čase zasipali z darilci … Tokrat bi se svečano odpovedala naštevanju, opisovanju in slikanju, saj je včasih prav posebej lepo, posamezne razveselitve ohraniti zase (menda velja tudi za blogerke :-), no, vsaj jaz sem glede tega čudna in včasih želim ostati nenaravno privat v svojem veselju 🙂 .

Moj dragi je danes zjutraj trikrat zaporedoma segel v črno platneno vrečko z napisom “Karlsruhe” in iz nje enega za drugim izvlekel tri zložene lističe, jaz pa sem nanje napisala zaporedno številko obelodanjenja:


Komaj sem čakala, da razkrijem zmagovalko.

Zmagovalka je:

A Good Reason 2013 Is Going To Be Beautiful

Pantone, reportedly the global authority on colors, has announced the Color of the Year for 2013. And I love it.

It is officially called Pantone 17-5641, but we may want to refer to it as Emerald.

I have been buying more and more green clothes during the last few years (Ha und Em happily providing me with them) and I am quite excited to get one or two in emerald. When my self-imposed shopping ban is over, of course.

A New Addiction On the Horizon

“I haven’t seen anything like this before!?! You put in the first one after a few times and the second one at the very first try?!? And you really haven’t worn contact lenses before?”

“Nope.” I tell him the truth, and then: “Oh, hello, world! Wow. This is … It’s great! Wow!”

And just like that, I am happy, exhilarated even. What a feeling!  The illusion of seeing well with my eyes only is overwhelming.Wow.

“Look, I usually charge 25 € for this, per person, but since I haven’t had any work with her, because she put her lenses in immediately, I’m gonna charge both of you for only one check and consultation.”

So the nice guy telling me all about contact lenses was serious when he said I’d learnt it very fast. Very well.

“I’m gonna need a pair of new sunglasses.” I tell my hubby, grinning happily.

“I don’t understand that. I mean: I can’t do it like you said, because there’s a step in there, on one side. Where does it come from, I wonder.”

“Don’t worry, just cut it short. I’ve had short hair many times before and I like it.”

“OK, but where does the length difference come from. I mean-“

“No, it wasn’t one of you. To tell you the truth, it was me. I was working too much and wanted desperately to get my hair cut but I had no time. So I did it myself.”

I am actually blushing a bit, but she’s relieved. And a few minutes later, my haircut is all it should be. Though my hubby would have preferred it shorter, I feel I am old enough for some hair to put behind the ears with an elegant gesture, like a lady should, if she feels like it. Or something.
