Mondays for a career woman

I´m getting used to those leisure Mondays, I´m thinking of making them a permanent solution. It´s such a good day to breathe! Fridays are not the same at all, you just feel you´re jumpstarting the weekend. Mondays however are an extension of the weekend, you get to do whatever it was you didn´t have time to during those two days that pass way too fast.

Long story short, my day started in court where I interpreted with a friend of mine for 2,5 hours and, due to a cause unrelated to the interpreters, the proceedings had to be postponed. Meaning coffee with my colleague, waxing and massage! Isn´t it just wonderful when you make a little time for yourself? I don´t have kids, so I don´t know how the others manage through the week, but I get so worked up in my daily life I almost get depressed if I don´t have a little timeout at a beautician´s or in a shop. 😉

I then bough a magazine and came home to enjoy some time with the pets. Beo slept leaning on to me and I planned dinner. Onion stew a la grandma, with chicken and dill. Recipe and picture in my next post! Yummy Mondays!



A tiny part of me is dying every Sunday evening along with the movie I´m watching. I can feel it through my body, a kind of sadness without reason. I hate Mondays, you see. They represent the end of everything that´s fun while resuming work and routine.

This Monday though was nothing less than perfect. I didn´t work until 12 and even then just for a couple of hours, so I could walk Sam for a whole hour in the morning and eat breakfast for a change. After hours, I bought groceries for a goulash and went to the hairdresser. For three whole hours I was pampered and entertained, had my hair dyed and cut and got to read everything about the new trends in fashion and interior. I felt fresh and light and happy, so I payed Anette a visit at Reprise, the coolest second hand shop in town, and stumbled upon the most beautiful scarf I´ve ever seen! Pure silk from Emilio Pucci at a quarter of the price it costs in the shops!  I´m so happy I envy myself for that purchase!

After having made a prima goulash and treated myself with a facial mask, I sat down with a magazine and a glass of prosecco and felt a quiver of bliss. Let the week begin, I´m ready for it!
