thanks so much for your comments, i had a lovely weekend, working at the bookshop again (the funnyness is gone). been very strong and only bought two books for myself.
now, i had to show you this photo. you see, my holiday is coming up (only two weeks and i'm off!). the thing is, whenever i go anywhere, my pointer comes out the minute i step off the plane and will be all over the place until i'm back home. i've even been accused of being a danger to my fellow travellers, as in poking their eyes out with my "oh-look!"-pointing finger. i really don't do it intentionally. it must be a genetic predisposition. a theory which would be backed by this very photo, showing me at the tender age of eight or nine months and ... see?!
p.s.: last week booked the ticket for the night train from venice to france, what an adventure, can't wait!
