The bad side of frolicking in the snow
February 4, 2012 § Leave a comment
It has been a week since our first heavy downfall of snow here in Aarhus and for the last 4 days I have been attached to my bed and duvet. You see, going outside when its -5 to -10 without a hat or ear muffs, wasn’t exactly my smartest move. Not just that, but staying outside all day, for three days straight with my host sister, made the situation worse than if it was just a quick trip to the supermarket. Hello Ear Infection and Headaches! So the finished garment will have to be a next week project, if I find some time.
“Whats that?” I hear you say “IF you find some time? I thought you were on a jobless vacation?”
On Tuesday, I will be getting back to work temporarily for three days with an occasional babysitting job that I managed to find, with a German Italian family. It’s for maybe 5 days a month, so nothing to get your hopes up about but it’s definitely better than nothing. That same Tuesday, I will also have my first Danish language course! This is the best part because, even without a job, from 9.30 to 12.30, Tuesday to Friday, I will now have somewhere to be!
And finally, to top off a week of firsts, this time next week, I will be having my first try at Skiing! It’s vacation week here that week, so a lot of people head for warmer climates or to go Skiing. Needless to say, the “still in high school because it Denmark” boyfriend and I, are tagging along with his lovely family to Livigno, Italy. Fingers crossed that there will be no reports of broken bones upon return and that I will be better at Skiing than I was at Ice Skating. All these cold, winter sports are really not my forte
I bid you adieu and will leave you with some shots from around Aarhus in the snow.
