well, since I won’t really have the pleasure of spending the pre-Christmas time with my hun, I am trying to keep busy… on Tuesday, I went to get a Christmas Star for my Mom and then we had my aunt and cousin over for a Nikolaus-coffee klatsch [this is indeed used in American English LOL]. My Mom had baked “Weckmänner” which is something like brioche… fluffy white bread and kind of sweet. I loved it.
Apparently, Nikolaus had the impression that I had been a good girl, because I got a curler set as a gift :) Of course, I had to try them yesterday and I have to say… it’s harder than I thought to put them in your hair by yourself :) Ilka, I definitely need some advice here.
Yesterday we had my sister and two of my Mom’s colleagues over and spent the evening creating jewelry :) I made some earrings and a necklace for myself. That was fun! I think I want to do more crafting for Christmas… as I can’t really spend a whole lot of money this year, I depend on hand-making some gifts [which?I think are not the worst gifts to be honest ;)].
Oh, and I have some good news… I found a potential job at the Schülerhilfe [a student tutoring organization] and I will have a job interview on Monday. I am not sure yet how often I will be able to work and what they pay, but it’s a start and I will definitely find out more on next week :) Yay!
