Happy Saturday friends!! I hope you all had a great start into the weekend. It’s snowing here, what a surprise, uh?? Will it ever stop????? I want green leaves, flowers and sun. PLEASE!!!
So since there’s not too much to do outside (it’s freezing) except if you go snowboarding – and I won’t go since it’s even colder up in the mountains – I decided to do the FIRST THING survey today.
- First thing you do when you wake up in the morning.
I try to open my eyes and walk to the bathroom without hitting a wall or a doorframe (this happens to me, sometimes, yes. And yes, in a complete dry condition) – wash face, set timer, go back to bed or to the living room, meditate. I try not to look into messages, emails or social media before meditation, cause I want to do it with an ‘off mind’ and if I start checking on the stuff I won’t stop and my whole schedule is spoiled
- First thing you reach for when you open the fridge.
Chocolate and Almond Butter Lemon. I drink hot lemon water after meditating, every morning.
- First thing you do when you get to the gym.
Sign in and have a short chat with whoever is at the reception – hopefully my trainer 🙂 (oh, hi trainer!! :-))
- First thing you do when you get home from work.
Cursing because I have my hands and arms full of stuff – mail, grocery bag, keys, gymbag, handbag. I try to put my jacket and shoes to the place they belong to rather than just trow them in the corner or somewhere on the floor (I mean I am a grown-up now right…?) – then I make a cup of tea. If I am starving I run to the fridge and reach for a carrott or a hardboiled egg. These are my savers when I feel like fainting from hunger (ok, that might be alittle exaggerated).
- First car.
Renault Twingo. That is a pic from google. Mine looked scratched, full of stuff (clothes, tickets, empty drinking bottles, shoes etc.) and (a bit) dirty.
- First car accident / traffic violation.
Hm. There are quite a few events that happened with my car. Nothing serious, more like the embarrassing blonde stuff….I touched a garage wall and the whole side was scratched. And then I got a several tickets because I parked on a forbidden place. I always thought nobody would notice. Why? I don’t know. I just thought. Or at least hoped….
- First thing you wanted to be when you grew up.
Horse Whisperer. I was obsessed with horses and was riding them several times a week.
And if not, then hairdresser.
- First beverage of choice.
Green Tea with lemon and ginger. And prosecco (is a beverage, right??)
- First choice breakfast.
Oh no!!! I can not decide. I can’t!! Ok, it just has to be something with eggs. Pancakes. Or omelette. Or cocoa-cookie-dough. Sorry, I had to pick 3.
- First choice dessert.
Oh stop!! Ok, I do it quick: Swiss Chocolate ‘RAGUSA’ – the Milk one, not dark.
Or Kindereggs. Or chocolate mousse? Oh I know, McVities White Chocolate! But maybe also Oreos.
- First song that comes to mind.
BIRDY, Skinny Love.
I absolutely LOVE this song, I can not get enough of it!!
- First major purchase.
When I was a teenager I saved money and bought my first hi-fi system. I felt TOO COOL.
- First job.
Receptionist at a gym. The first REAL job was Flight Attendant with SWISSAIR.
- First time you flew on a plane.
When I was 7 years old – we flew to Finland. The years before my parents couldn’t afford a flight and we only travelled inside Switzerland with the train.
So now it’s your turn!! Pick 2 questions and give an answer. Remember, you can only pick one breakfast and one dessert, ha 🙂
Happy weekend loves! I see you Monday for MIMM-Party, yeah!
