i am one of those people who don't have a clearly defined weekend. most of the time, i will be working on any given project and take a few hours off on saturday and sunday. some weekends, i'll take a whole day off and work the other. that's just the way it is in my line of work and i think most people in the creative industries can relate to that. sometimes it really bugs me, and in my mind, somewhere in the future, there will be a time when i have 'proper' weekends again.
last weekend though was an execption. a really slow weekend, and much enjoyed. on saturday, reading magazines on the sofa (marion sent me a copy of 'the gentlewoman' from marseille, as it was nowhere to be had in berlin), taking a leisurely stroll on the farmers' market, having coffee at sgaminegg. on sunday, scoring some vintage, tom-ford-style sunglasses on the fleamarket as well as a crumpler photo bag and buying some home-made juices from the stall of an organic farm near berlin. again, reading a lot. even though it rained so much on sunday that i got soaked to the skin at one point, it was the most relaxing weekend i had in a long time.

p.s.: you really are the best! thank you so much for all your suggestions of things to do and places to see in melbourne/sydney. not only in the comments to my last post, but also by email and on your respective blogs. keep them coming!
a big thank you to elizabeth of primoeza for her melbourne post - i wish i could go myself! huge thanks also to sonia, who emailed me a long list of melbourne restaurants and cafés. i can't say how grateful i am.
