Daily Diaries is a link up for bloggers of all shapes and sizes. As a blogger, it’s so easy to consider what content is “shareworthy” and what will bring in traffic, that sometimes we forget what the purpose of a blog is. A blog is a web log. So, every Friday I will be sharing what’s been going on with me and encouraging you to do the same, then share your post in the link up area below. Feel free to link up at any point today or over the weekend, and don’t forget about the #dailydiaries hashtag on Instagram to share your latest snapshots!
I feel like my German class is taking over my life. Between that, design work, this blog, my shop and still being an Au Pair for another week, things are hectic (to say the least). Oh yeah, I forgot about my book when writing that list, so there’s also that. I know, I’ve taken on way too much this month but hey, it’s over soon!
On top of the various work/life things I am doing at the moment, I also have “us” things which include Dan and our newlywed life. I mentioned last week that we began apartment hunting and that is still very much happening. We’ve had some interesting leads but so far there seems to be a curveball around every corner. I swear I am going to be able to write a bloody book on renting nightmares in Frankfurt by the time I am done!
The other major “us” thing going on is that we have finally taken the leap and decided to bring a puppy into our little family. Dan and I have both wanted a dog for a really long time but our travel commitments meant that it wasn’t an ideal situation to bring a pup into. Now we know we will be settling in Frankfurt for a little while, we are ready to make the commitment and then include our pup in any future moving/travels we intend to make. We have a breed in mind but we still aren’t 100% sure that this breed will fit with our home dynamic so we are still researching, visiting potential pups and trying to find out as much as we can. We have been swaying towards a Beagle but I am concerned as we may be living in an apartment that a Beagle’s howling could severely upset any potential neighbours! Anyone have any experience with this?
Finally, for those of you who were just as shocked as I am about how long our internet is taking to be installed (we just hit the 5 week mark), I received a random package today with a WiFi router and a TV box. No instructions for installing nor a date for the engineer to come and install but apparently on the 1st of October they will be activating our connection. Yes, 13 days from now. So that’ll be almost 7 weeks from the date we signed our contract. What the fuck Vodafone Deutschland, what the fuck?
