Yeah, kinda the same situation in terms of a job here. Although I’m still at the point where I want to enjoy this freedom a little before I haul myself into another job. For now I’ll be helping a family friend’s daughter with some business plans although I doubt anything will come of that. I do want to take sister’s dog to a dog school. 

The new ice cream place didn’t impress me, but I’ll give it another chance and try more traditional flavors. I’m very very sleepy. I can’t decide if it’s the heat, the bull sized antibiotics I’m taking or what. 

Maybe they are all at a beach enjoying summer? :dunno: hope everybody’s well. 

Taking a dog to a dog school is a good idea, I am sure you and the dog will both enjoy it and benefit from it.

Are you taking antibiotics and eating ice cream at the same time? :o No ice cream for the sick, no?

I sincerely doubt anybody is at the beach, but you never know. ;)

Definitely not down here! Though it is being a pretty mild winter so far, even by our standards.

Well I wouldn’t necessarily be the person to complete the course with the dog, I’d just tag along to kickstart it. It makes sense that my mum should do so, since she’s spending the most time with him and he listens the most to her as it is anyway. 

The antibiotics are for a UTI, no reason why I shouldn’t indulge myself with ice cream. 

well it’s half past ten in the evening and it’s 27C outside... :idea: It’ll be about three more hours before it makes sense to open a window.

Kickstarting it is a good idea nonetheless.

Wish you a fast recovery. Play that song as many times as you can without going insane. :P

Thank you! Oh right, the song! I should, shouldn’t I? :lol: 

Dark on Netflix. Revives my German every time. Dynamic plot, beautiful character building, detailed, air-tight storytelling. I can only recommend it. 

Ah poor sister lost a beloved jacket during her shenanigans last night. As annoying and drunk she was, she didn’t deserve that.

So I hope all the news outlets that claimed we’d have a cold summer are very ashamed of themselves right now. It’s midnight and it’s 25C. Technically it doesn’t exactly matter that we can’t travel, tropical climates came to us instead. 

How is everybody? Having a nice summer? Slowly, safely, but surely getting out of quarantine?

We’re ok at the moment, the kids are keeping us busy and I’m having good and bad days but getting through.

I managed to get motivated enough to go for a run yesterday which helped my mood and today I felt in the mood to do some music practice which I haven’t for a while, I’ve got a new lullaby to work on for mini Sith 2, sadly I can’t sing that well though :(.

Glad you’re all doing okay. 

That’s good to hear, physical activity usually helps with bad moods and blue. I’m sure she’ll appreciate that her mummy plays and sings to her and not care so much about perfect tunes. All she’ll hear and understand is your love for her.

It has been raining most of the night and morning here. It is not nearly as hot as in the past few weeks.

Getting a lot of rejections from workplaces. :dunno: That is about all that is happening.

I went running again today and I do feel a bit better for it :).

I can sing ok and have no trouble hitting those notes, they’re actually easier than lower register ones for me, I just can’t sound as good as him :P.

It was a bit winder and cooler here as well, and it appears we’ll be staying in the 25-30C range instead of the 30-35C one, which is a lot more city friendly. 

sorry about the jobs :( don’t lose faith, sooner or later something’s bound to come along. :grouphug:

Yay! Happy for your feeling better! 

well he’s quite an unachievable standard. Though to me staying in tune is a hard to achieve standard as well :lol:

Dark is great, I've gotten three different people to try it this week because I can't shut up about it. Though I do think the final season was weaker than the first two.

:agree: a discussed it with a former colleague who loved the last season as well and just overall found the series perfect. But I do agree with you that the final season wasn't as strong as the other too. 
what else have you been watching?

Did anybody here read the Witcher? 
 

I’ve had a kind blue week last week because the stress/shock of our family issues resulted in some actually physical health issues which seem to be taking a bit more time to clear up than I originally anticipated (I’m pathologically impatient with all medical conditions, I just expect stuff to be fine in three days).
 

But today I feel good and I’ll be bathing the Chancellor (you might remember that he’s our youngest pup), and potentially Prince William too. Although splitting it up like the Chancellor and a lady dog, one day rest (it’s going to rain tomorrow) and then Prince William and the other lady dog seems to make more sense, as male dogs are just more difficult when it comes to bathing. Or anything really. 

and this weekend we visited my grandma and aunt for the first time since Christmas and it was lovely. We got to pet Prince William’s son (yes, the dog made like 50 puppies in his life, or at least 18 that we know of), who lives at my aunt and uncle’s. He’s a year older than Prince William’s daughter, who lives at my mum’s. They never met as they are from different litters but the resemblance is striking. 

how are you all?

Puppies are adorable! I am visiting the relatives - grandmother and cousin - who also have a dog, a very young shepherd, she is as of yet untrainted to anything, so they will have to school her. She is very lively and playful and a delight.

It is also summery hot and sunny and yesterday, my cousin, his girlfriend and I were bathing in a garden pool. So all is well here. I am taking the train home in the afternoon though.

Ah, it sounds lovely! Have a great time with extended family and good luck with puppy training to your grandmother!

Played the first game and watched the show, but haven't tried the books yet. Would you recommend them?

Can’t provide you with a definite answer just yet. I’ve read the first short story collection and a quarter of the second, but I’m still undecided. I’m curious to dip my toe into the actual novels, which is basically an achievement. It’s an unusual style of writing, which is not good or bad, just not necessarily what I’m used to or what I was expecting. This may be down to the fact that it’s a translation. In fact, the first short story collection I read was quite a wobbly translation, the next volume, however, got a native English translator, which feels like quite an upgrade in linguistic quality. This is certainly something to be mindful if you do decide to read it.

Three "we are sorry to inform you that you are not chosen for this job" emails in one day. :( I am losing hope here.
