Final Countdown

Well, one more day until I leave Ireland! Precisely 27 hours if my plane takes of as scheduled. I’m busy packing and cleaning. Trying to eat all my food but with still 3 glasses of Indian and Thai curry sauces in my press (there’s another Irish word for ya, “press”=”cupboard”) it’s not gonna happen. I hope my roomies’ll like them ;-).
On Tuesday I actually cooked one of them for Daniela, a German girl I had met via xing and we’d been out to the pub once with her boyfriend who had to work late on Tuesday though. She brought along choclate pudding and wine and we had a lovely night eating chicken rhogan josh at my apartment.
One suitcase is packed, the other is half full. I’m still debating what to do with my carry-on. I had three pieces when I got here: laptop, purse, backpack. Aparently you can only bring one and strictly only one aboard now. They were giving me a pretty bad time in London when I had a connection there in April and made me stick my purse in my backpack (and there was no lappy with me then). Not sure how strickt they are in Copenhagen – I know I’d be fine in Dublin but not sure if I want to risk it. I might just only bring lappy and a purse along or maybe lappy and the backpack?! I have another Guinness glass, mug and a vase that I don’t want to possibly break in my suitcase but hmmm maybe if I just wrap them up really well?! Well, I still have 27 hours to decide ;-).
My last day at the office starts in 45 minutes. I don’t think we’ll do anything special. 5 or 6 of our 10 people are out of the office anyways. I got them 3 huge Milka chocolate bars at Fraport last week so hopefully they’ll appreciate that and we can have a chocolate feast. Muahaha! πŸ˜€

Oh PS: My Mom just called to tell me I’ve got mail – from my university – and I finally got signed up for my thesis. Took them about a month to make it happen. So now I have until August 31st and the ealiest I can hand it in is July 15th. Yay, finally, I can see the end.

  1. enjoy your last day and have a good trip back home.
    i think copenhagen should be okay and not as “bad” as london but maybe just for the sake of having less stress you should stick to the rules… πŸ™‚

    *smoochie*

  2. have a great last day at work there and a good trip home tomorrow!

    i think copenhagen should be fine and not as “bad” as london. but maybe just to be on the safe side and for the sake of less stress you should stick with one bag & lappy πŸ™‚

    *smooch*

  3. Hope you’re having a good last day at work and a safe trip home tomorrow! I think an extra lappy should be fine, I usually have that and a purse/backpack with SAS.

  4. oh your last day already? thats it for ireland? or did i miss something? oh i am so bad. good luck for your trip and your thesis of course. scary. but i believe in you! πŸ™‚

  5. Hey Sanna, enjoy your last day in Dublin. I come, you go πŸ™ But I will keep you updated whats going on in Ireland. Have a good trip…

  6. I am determined about what to carry in my backpack: MY LAPTOP!!!

    Look, your purse can be fiddled with no worries and you can put all the things of your backpack inside the luggage with no probs as well. Of course, make sure you envelope anything that can be broken. However, your laptop is very sensitive!!!!! lol πŸ˜‰ you have to give it a preference, of course!

    wow, time in Ireland has really flown !!!! can’t imagine you are back Germany, although I guess you are quite looking forward to hehe πŸ™‚

  7. enjoy the last couple of hours in dublin and have a safe trip home. i think you made the best of your time over there πŸ˜‰

    *smooch*

  8. Don’t risk it: get it into 1 unit! I found that out @ LHR myself. Purse and/or lappy should fit into backpack.

    I never tried Milka’s, but I need want to get my hands on some!

    Someone else showed me their xing profile this week, but I ignored it since I already have information overload.

    Enjoy the last few hours!
