I have an appointment at 9.30 in the new job. I'm excited. I assume it will take a good couple of hours. Then, I decided to pay my partner a visit. I am going there to talk to her and clear things out. Enough procrastinating and silly excuses. I was telling myself that I did not want to show weakness by crying should I feel like this. And with this excuse I have shown an even bigger weakness by not confronting her at all. Well, this is not the case anymore. I was thinking that taking some distance would help really, and because we are leaving for a long weekend this afternoon, I was thinking to take some time and then speak with her on Monday. Not the case, really. I left the office at 3 yesterday and walked to the national garden, walked there for an hour, fed the ducks and the birds, looked at so many young mothers and kids, then walked for another 3 hours all over Athens. Downtown, main shopping streets, really very quiet, and with exceptionally good weather for ths time of the year, a sunny 24 C. Then I walked over Plaka and old Athens and the Acropolis. This really cleared my head.
We will be back on Sunday evening. We are going in a place called Kardamili in Peloponese, a place we passed by 5 years ago and wished I could stay for a few days ever since. Its a strange story how we are going, we were seated with some strangers during the lunch after a christening, and we sort of clicked together and had lotsa fun. So they have a house over there and they invited us over. Although I am excited I really am feeling a bit weird to go now, since Ive only spent with them 3 hrs and now we are going to sleep over their house for 3 days...lol
I was thinking of a gift to take, and I decided to make a breakfast basket. 2 loafs of my mom's whole wheat bread, a small jar with my fig marmelade, a small jar with my grape spoon sweet I made on sunday, and chocolate chip cookies and oat/raisins/almond cookies I'm making when I'm back home after the appointments. Then I'll go to the organic shop and buy a good butter, a good goat cheese, 12 eggs, a couple of good sausages and apple waffles. I got the classic plaited red and white tableclothe and I am going to cut it in small pieces, and put everything in a piece, tie it up with some string, and place everything like this in a rustic basket. You think its nice?
I'll be back Sunday evening or Monday morning to tell you how everything went!
I'm excited...and a bit stressed. This place is about 350 km away...have I ever told you how I fear road trips?
