"living up"

Almost unbelievably amazing, after one more week, my driver's licence has finally been finished to be picked up. It took the office only three months, but I don't care anymore. It is here now and I can get over to do other stuff. Above that, we've got a nice little present last night. Sometimes neighbors ask us to take care about their letter boxes or flats, as long as they are on holiday. I don't mind doing these things at all, it is what neighbors should do, but in one case, it is almost a pleasure. One of the couples living in our building, they are too sweet. Everytime they return from some far and mostly sunny destination, they'll bring a well thought about present for us; marple syrup from Canada, Mokka from Greece or herbs from Las Palmas. This time they had been to Thailand for a couple of weeks and last night, they brought us Thai Rum and a special oil to revitalize when tired and stressed out. Thank you so much guys. I will empty your letter box forever.

  1. This is great and I know exactly how you feel.
    One time I took care of the flowers of a friend during her 6 weeks of holidays in canada...she was living on the 6th floor, needless to say without an elevator...
    When she came back she brought me a pair of earrings made by her mum. Tiny sea shells from the canadian beach...the weeks of climbing up the way to her appartment went unimportant...
    Enjoy the rum! ;)
