Seven-To-Eight

Yes, yes, yes, I know... HAPPY 2008 to you all and, of course, all the best in the new year. I am pretty sure you will be able to make 2008 a very special year for yourself... and I hope also for me in a tiny little bit. I am easy to please you know. And since I am a lazy fuck, I am going to do something bad. I will just use a copy/paste routine and try to tell you about my last few weeks with an email I sent to cuboz today. I hope he won't mind and I hope neither will you. :) And I will add some pictures to make it all a bit more original, ok? I will just start with a few pictures of Ljubljana in this time of the year. I think it does really look lovely.

And now I will start with that promised email. Here it is.

Hey, Dominic!
hehehehehe none of me in xmas ball... that's probably meant to happen live, I guess. Or at least it shouldn't be on a picture that I send to quite a few people. Even those who might not appreciate me in the buff LOL.
 
Xmas and New Year - I spent xmas with my bf's family and it was....... exhausting. Too much food and DEFINITELY too many kids. Well, only two, my bf's nephews actually, but they can make such noise as if there were ten of them. So I spent most of the time in the room, with computer and headphones. I really had stressful time at work before and around christmas and the last thing I wanted was listening to two screamers. So the family didn't see (or have) much of me, but I had to preserve my mental health. LOL

That's part one. Igor's family lives in a little city on the northeast outskirts of Slovenia, called Radenci. We got some snow there.

The email continues...

New year was much much much better. We went to Italian Dolomites to ski with some friends and really had great time. Ok, apart from nasty and annoying cold that made breathing while skiing a bit tougher, but I survived. It was really lovely. And I managed to stay away from "jazz and liquor" quite successfully. Imagine: On 1 Jan we were on our skis at 8.15. Quite an achievement, huh? And... skiing and snow... or the lack of it. Also Italian Dolomites, that are known for their skiing resorts, were almost totally and completely without snow, except for those really high, shadow valleys. But they are able to make enough artificial one, so it's all good. And we're also experiencing quite a strange winter here. Still no snow, just weeks and weeks of cold and really dark and grey and cloudy and depressive days here in Ljubljana. But when you go out of the city or drive to some hill, you can actually see some sun. Last winter was even weirder. We had a grand total of 1 (one) day with temperatures below zero. Which is really strange for this part of Europe and our so called continental climate. But.......... we should take it as it is.

That's part two. And some pictures from Dolomiti.


Simply ADORABLE.

And more of that email...

And today it's the last day of my almost two weeks' vacation. So I need to get my arse in gear and prepare some stuff for work on Monday - it's quite intense now. We've taken over the presidency to the European Union and I am in charge for all the coordination and reporting and all at our radio station so it's a lot of extra work - for not really much extra money. Life.....
 
And I need to go through my Italian lessons. The last time we had our "school", was 19 Dec so I'd better do some repeating or I'll be a total fool tomorrow. :))))
 
And you, Dominic, and your new dream job? And you in this - for you - hot time of the year? I can easily imagine myself rolling on some sunny warm beach and just enjoying the view. With you around, of course. I just really REALLY hate those Greenpeace people. Just when I start feeling really comfortable on the beach they come screaming after me "SAVE THE WHALE! SAVE THE WHALE!" and they drag me back to water. Can you imagine the stress????? :)
 
So, be good and hope to hear from you soon, ok?
 
LOADS OF HUGS AND KISSES AND ALL AND HAVE A PERFECT 2008!!!!!!!!! :)
