biscuit & plum

Hi guys!

How have you all been?
I've had a really good weekend and today was another day off, so I'm relaxed and ready for a short working week to start to tomorrow.
I thank you a lot for your supporting comments on my last post. Some regular readers may or may not have noticed that here and there I've thrown in some info about my private life being upside down since Patrick has returned from a very long business trip some weeks ago. However I would never name the details of my private issues on the internet, so I'll leave it at saying what I already said on Friday: we've been having some problems but it finally feels like we're on our way up again.
We've been together for almost ten years now and of course already had our ups and downs in the past. We always managed to make it through hard times and that's what we're doing again at the moment, we're making it through. This shall pass too and will be another thing we'll look back on as overcome in the future.

Now for something completely different: this is what I wore to work last Friday. It was hot and windy - the perfect opportunity to wear my new linen pants! I was actually already broke when I ordered a bunch of pants at Esprit Online, but everything was marked down 50%, so I couldn't resist.
Funnily enough, this pair of pants was the only one out of ten that fit me. I've lost 12 kilos since February and I'm still not used to ordering smaller sizes it seems.
Anyway, I'm glad these babies fit because I fell in love with the shape and colour at first sight! Breezy, not too baggy and in a lovely shade of light brown called "biscuit".
Mmhh, I guess I'd buy anything that's named after food haha! So the combo with my plum cardigan somehow suggested itself. Biscuits and plums, yum!

I think I will sort out and edit the photos of our weekend tonight. We spent Saturday and Sunday at the lake because it were the hottest days of the year so far. Saturday we went alone, Sunday it was double fun because Patrick's band was with us. So you can expect some lake photos in the course of the next days, woohoo!

Oh and also "Hi!" to the couple of new readers! I'm glad you're following along, thanks for that! :)

Have a nice day!

    10 Jahre sind wirklich verdammt lange und das schweißt erst recht zusammen. Und ich finde das man dass auf den Fotos sieht das du abgenommen hast, vorallem bei dem heutigen Outfit. Die Hose gefällt mir wirklich.
