Welcome, welcome. If this is your first visit to my blog, you most probably got here through a search engine or some such. In that case, I guess, all you want to know is whether those covers you've seen all around the web are any good, and if it's worth spending all that money on them. So I suggest you skip and hit the break to see for yourself. ;)
But if you're a regular and have been wondering what the heck was up with my previously diligent blogging, well, I have a confession to make. I've been busier than ever in my whole life. You know, as a university student, earning a living and managing a household, I always thought I was pretty busy. Then I came to Switzerland and started building a life here. For a while I was suffering from the lack of any respectable job: managing the move and keeping the home afloat felt kind of demeaning. I look up to those girls immensely who are good at being a stay at home mum or a full time wife. I'm not. I blotch things without remorse and get itchy and frustrated. Then I blotch things up even more, sort of destroying the cage, so that people can see I'm no good at home.
So long story short, I've managed to get myself a couple of jobs, piling on till I was satisfied. Problem was they soon started to grow on me and this summer had me fully exhausted and thinking about quitting some of them. It seems that by the end of the year I should be done with everything but my university duties, which is good. The only thing is that I started to reduce my other responsibilities only to reach the busiest period in my PhD project. So basically it was good timing, otherwise I'd be dead. But this also meant that I had to put everything else on hold.
But don't worry, I have a couple of posts in the brewing, so keep an eye out for those. Also, if you're looking for some good deals on ski holidays and the like in/around good old Switzerland, check out etravel.ch. And now, let's see those shiny back covers!
