Even if my old age made me messing up the flight reservation to Jorma Lyly’s seminar in Oslo, I manage to spend a reasonably ok saturday, putting off energy in a profitable way, and a very good sunday, relaxing and having a great time with my special person.
On saturday, and friday night, first I finally updated my Flickr account with some extremely old pictures/sets that deserved to be on much earlier. Because of that, I have mass uploaded and in a couple of weeks I will refilter the pics, deleting the ones less interesting or with less views (as done lately). These pics are about the visit from Taiwan of Rose and the tour with her in Stavanger, Trondheim, Røros and Oslo. Meeting this person had been a bit different than expected, let’s say not all worked as hoped But pictures are pictures.. and they are an important part of my life. I prefer to forget the rest!
Besides, when we were in Oslo I had a chance to partecipate to the wedding party of a good friend of mine: Olga!!! And since she worked also as a guide on the boats taking tourist to fjord tours, she organized the party of one of these ship. And the weather was wonderfull!!!
I had also two sets of Aikido related trips that had to be uploaded: Prague and Vienna, both seminars with Endo sensei, of course!!
Saturday, feeling uneasy for the missing practice, I decided to help my dear colleague (and boss) Phil in renovating (OK, starting the process, the easy part for me!) the first floor in his house: the destruction part!!
A few hours of quite hard work.. and next I was devastated enough for relaxing at home in the evening!
Sunday, finally, I went to meet Han Xu, for a very relaxing afternoon, first time in some weeks, since she also was a bit more free from University homeworks.. before her rush for preparing the many exams she has this semester.. So we could share some lazy time in the afternoon and evening, watching together some episodes of the first series ”Desperate housewives“, since I have never watched that before (while she is a pro for this series!!)
We had also a good dinner with pizza, unfortunately the place where we ate had been occupied for most of the time by a huge group of young girls, very noisy!! When they left one could really appreciate the quiet!!
