Mz husband asked me to do him a favour and spell-check ‘a few’ German texts. Sure. I switched my keyboard from English to German and happilz tapped along. Look at all the Äs and Ös and Üs! Exciting stuff!
Now that little L has settled happily into her two-day routine at the nursery, I am enjoying my freedom in rather unpredicted ways. Of all the things I missed from my former work life, PowerPoint hasn’t been on top of the list. Of course, I am just trying to be helpful. But also, I have been eying up a pair of the above for a while.
Or maybe even these:
It’s not that I weren’t allowed to spend money as I please to, as long as I am not ruining us. I.e. I could buy the shoes and feed the family a la That Girl 39 for the rest of the month. Beans on toast, anyone?
Sometimes I miss having ‘my own’ money. And I miss spending it unreasonably. I miss not justifying my unreasonableness. Even if that means eating beans on toast for the rest of the month.
So, back to the German kezboard. A girl’s gotta work for her shoes.
