Good morning! Today is another fully scheduled day with meetings, a lunch, and another afternoon of the conference (I thought it was yesterday but no, it’s today! ugh.) The change of plans – or better say: me not knowing better – kind of swirled my agenda around a bit. I ended up working a bit longer yesterday to not stress too much today. Though I still do need to get quite a bit done!

Also, my parents came to Zurich again last week Thursday! Now I get to spend my lunches not only with Zaphira, but also have Elli (my mom’s Italian Greyhound) visiting me everyday. Even though both pups love each other, they are also equally jealous and always start crying super loud when they see each other. Especially Elli really has some loud squeaking going on haha!

Enjoying the Sunshine

What a lovely day it was yesterday! I was able to work from home as the rest of the team is out of office. It also allowed me to go out with my love and our two fur-babies and enjoy the sun at around noon. Yesterday was such an amazing weather; I really cannot get over it. Today is rather cloudy and a few drops of rain are supposed to hit down on us. Otherwise not all too much happened – a regular work day, I guess. We will have a friend over tonight for BBQ so I am looking forward to that.

I also started going to the gym again. Really not the biggest fan haha :) I guess I need to get into my routine again. But then again, it surely is healthy and allows me to calm down after a full day of stress. Or even get more energy when working out before the day starts at the office (though let’s be honest; I am not a morning person whatsoever!).

ps. sorry for the photo quality – I only had my iPhone with me and had to brighten up the photos for you to see anything :)

my two loves <3

Iggys at the Office

Good morning! Today I will be working from home – always super nice! – as my little baby (Zaphira) is undergoing surgery right now. It isn’t all too dramatic, though. They will be removing both dew claws (? “Wolfskralle” in German) at her front feet. She has so often gotten stuck with them somewhere outside and either nearly or fully pulled them out that it has ended bloody several times. Again, nothing to worry about, but because we have this issue every couple of months my vet and I decided it may be best to removing them.

I will surely be updating you on how she is doing post-surgery!

Yesterday I had Fridolin (the Italian Greyhound of friends) visit Zaphira and myself at the office for an hour. Such a cutie! I remember when he was a puppy and even smaller than Zaphira – now, he already outgrew her! Fridolin will actually be coming over again today and staying until Sunday. His parents are attending an event and we will have the cutie plus our two fluffy loves at home. 3 dogs! I’m sure it will be an interesting and the most cuddly weekend in a while!

Finishing off my new apartment

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! It’s been a while and my days have been filled with travelling, busy work days, spending some quality time with loved ones, enjoying nature with Zaphira and – trying to finish the new apartment!

I am proud to say that it is almost done. Well, it’s been “almost done” for about 3 weeks now. I managed to more or less unpack everything within a weekend – finished a few last boxes the weekend after and now only have one room semi-undone left: my home office. Although more or less everything is already at its place, it still feels a little cold and not as inviting as it should. My biggest issue: I cannot work in a place I don’t feel 100% comfortable in.

This week, however – if I am lucky – my two carpets should arrive that I ordered. One for the living room, and one for my office room. I’ll then need to add a few last details, put up some pictures (some walls got repainted so I had to wait) and hopefully I am rather done then. Of course, my apartment is ALWAYS a work in progress and I love switching things up from time to time. Yet, the basis should be done in the next few weeks. At least that is my plan before I leave for my next trip!

Quick Update from our End

Good morning, afternoon or evening :)! Whilst Zaphira loves to stay on the couch on cold winter days, I on the other hand try to use my free time to continue packing everything up. Because: Big News: I am finally moving! Everything is set and almost ready to go and the big moving day is finally coming around the corner (end of February). I found myself a cute little apartment a little further outside of Zurich (still close enough though) with a small garden perfect for long summer nights outside – and – of course for Zaphira. Thus, I apologise that I have not had the chance to update you here all too regular the past few weeks and I promised myself to getting back into the routine once everything is settled in. Of course, I also plan to share some of my journey with you!

Although I still have a few nights until the move, I also have some travels coming up before. Therefore I will need to pack everything up by the end of this week ready for the move once I am back in town! Can’t wait to show you more :)!
