A Day In The Life
Okay, so for today I decided to document my day in pics. Not sure where the day will lead to, but we’ll find out.
Good Morning. Today I wear my wonderful, new cosy jacket for the very first time. Bought it in August while on vacation when it was still hot as hell outside. Now it’s finally autumn and time to wear jackets, coats, scarfs and boots. YAY!
Velbert at 7:30 in the morning. Light rain, not much traffic.
Stopping at the bakery. “Bäckerei Bär” is my daily choice. Bär = bear, thus the stuffed bear at the entrance. It’s their mascot. Once upon a time, maybe a couple years ago, it was stolen. Then someone sent a pic to a newspaper with the bear that was holding a bottle of beer in his paws, telling the readers that he was on vacation. The bear was brought back some days later. It was never clear who it was that “stole” it and brought it back. Bär, btw, is not the name of the bakery because of the stuffed bear at the entrance. It’s actually the family’s last name and they have a chain of bakery shops in town for several generations now.
First thing in the morning in the office: a cup of coffee and the reason why I stop at “Bär’s” each morning: it’s called Campingbrötchen (Camping Roll). I’m not sure if anyone knows why they are called that and I don’t care. They are more sweet-ish and I LOVE them. For many years now, there’s not a single working day where I don’t eat one.
Lunch is eaten while continuing with the work. Since I’m working not more than 6 hours at the moment, I don’t have a lunch break. My lunch is a whole grain bread sandwich with boiled eggs and slices of cucumber and salad. Mmmh!
Also bought shoes and a new purse. Pics will be forthcoming. Now driving back home. Driving through Essen-Werden is usually like driving through the eye of a needle but still our route of choice rather than taking the Autobahn. It’s still a lot shorter.
And shiny new Oxfords. LOVE THEM!!! They look faboulos when combined with the “rusty” colored pants I recently bought at Flair Modesalöngchen 😉
You know… those:
