Good morning and happy Monday morning! I hope you all survived Valentine’s Day and enjoyed the day highlighting love in every way possible. I myself was actually quite busy and didn’t have any time to really enjoy nor relax this weekend. However, Valentine’s did arrive for me! I received an anonymous set of 12 amazingly pretty, red roses! In the end they of course did not stay anonymous, but it absolutely made my day on Friday. If you haven’t seen the flowers yet – they are on my Instagram account @laurananette, so beautiful!
My Valentine’s Day started at 9.00am in the pool in a full body dry diving suit. I passed my theory test Friday evening and went straight to practicing under water both Saturday and Sunday – it is so fun! I still cannot get over the fact that you stay absolutely dry under the suit – I was wearing normal sports clothes and was dry after 4,5h in the pool. How cool is that, please? However I was quite exhausted when getting back home both days at around 1.30pm. Sunday in the pool went even better than Saturday and our teacher said we are ready for the open water! Ok, not quite as open as the ocean yet, but with the dry diving suit we will be going into the lake next weekend! Although I am quite excited to see what everything looks like in the lake (supposedly very pretty!) – I’m super afraid of getting cold. The suit is supposed to keep me dry and warm but, just think about it: the lake has a current temperature of 4°C! That is freeziiiiing.. brrr :-( I’ll definitely update you on that went though!
I am now on the train on my way from Zurich to Geneva for meetings all day today and tomorrow. I’ll be staying in a hotel tonight so I’m quite happy to not have to go back and forth on one day. It does take the stress away a bit. I won’t be able to sleep in though, nor enjoy a rather large breakfast tomorrow as the first meeting is quite early! I’ll then get back to Zurich tomorrow evening (probably quite late) to go see the doctors on Wednesday and then continue work at the office again. Doctors.., eh. I have an infection in my tendon on my right wrist – and you might imagine, being a right-handed, that isn’t the most fun activity to go through. I’ve had it too often though in the past months so I’m getting everything checked now by specialists. Let’s cross fingers that she allows me to keep on typing!
The pictures below, to add a sentence to them, are of me wearing the lovely Swarovski earrings I received from my best friend a couple of weeks ago! I love how they are gold and work with basically all my other jewelry. I used to only wear silver all my years but that has completely changed in the past 2-3 years and now I absolutely love and prefer gold :-).
