Hey hey heyyyyy!!!! Cheese-us, I feel like I’ve been away from blogging since aaaaaages. So sorry I just disappeared without a word of goodbye, for not reading ANY blogs or leaving nice and dirty comments. THIS move was by far the craziest and believe me, I already moved a lot and crazy before.
This post will include MANY pics, so I try to shut my mouth for the major part (we know that’s a difficult task for me). Hang on – I need tot tell you that there are NO pics food or fitness related – cause my world was different for the last few days. I shut up now. Wait – WIAW will include pics from the moving weekend! Shshshshsh, now.
Wait, not yet. That’s my new kitchen. Empty. It’s huge. I am SO excited. This will be the place where new recipes for you guys will happen. I promise, ONE day there will be a new recipe 🙂 I gathered all my stuff from my Basel home on Wednesday and Thursday and moved it over to my new home. It’s only one block away, so you bet I transported my bed on my bike. Yep, that’s how I roll. Come on, you know it. My bike, my life.
My empty balcony.
Thursday night, Momma, me and Sylvia worked till late. There is just always so much to do. You bet I still hit the gym at 6am. I just had to GET OUT!!
In the afternoon, Momma and I were sucked in by a black hole called IKEA. Thank God I do Crossfit and have muscles. This would have been quite tricky otherwise.
Saturday, the actual move happened. Sandro packed all the stuff I stored at his parents place all these years the night before, I drove with the car to Zurich on Saturday early morning and then we started packing together with our friends. It was sad. Sandro and me both suffered. But well, you can not spend a day without some good laughs.
Arriving in Basel, the explosion took place.
And you know what? It’s seriously an issue, when you live in 2 homes like I did for the last 2 years. I have now 2 hair straighteners, 2 blow dryers, 2 kitchen shelves, and last but not least…….A HELL OF A TON OF CLOTHES. I was given several and endless sermons by my Mom and Sylvia as to how beyond off base my amount of clothes is. We still haven’t solved the situation with the shoes and all my winterclothes are in the basement. What can I say? My jeans, my life. Considering that my legs and my butt are my favorite bodyparts, I need a lot of jeans. Cause let’s be honest, a good pair of jeans flatter every bootey.
So you see, there is another dresser with workout clothes, tank tops and normal shirts. Heyyyyyy. I lived in 2 homes. It’s a reason.
BUT the most important thing was actually that my precious peace of furniture arrived on time. Ever since I saw the part of SATC when Aidan gave Carrie that huge leather chair, I wanted one. And now I have one and I am in LOVE. It’s already my favorite spot in the appartment.
I also have a Ninja Blender now including an effing 13 kilo transformation thing for Switzerland. Sandro tried it. I flew from the kitchen, cause I was terrified that we will all burst into flames the moment he turns it on. IT WORKED. It might be a little complicated tearing this freaking thing out for every smoothie – for that I still have my Magic Bullet, thank God – but I can NOT wait to make nutbutter again!! Prep yourself for awesome flavors!! At the end of the day I had a headache, I couldn’t listen to anyones questions anymore not to mention my answers came out arbitrarily and nonseniscally. I felt kind of odd (read: gross) in my clothes which I wore since 2 or 3 days in a row. My brain was fucked, my legs sore, I felt dizzy, I was sticky, sweaty and smelly and I needed wine. A BIG glass of wine. The next morning I went for a run. Trailrunning, 1 hour – gosh, it was BLISSFUL!! It was so good to clear my head off of all the craziness, the thoughts of doubts, the sad goodbye, the new beginning. Vanessa and Stefan brought me their old table in the afternoon. What wonderful people. I am so happy with this table. Of course it gets shabby-chiced, cause I love it. It’s not finished yet. Obviously. BUT, I am ALMOST done with the setup. My couch arrives next Thursday, the dresser for the hallway arrives next month and next week I will get the lights, shelves and pictures up. So far so good.
I took pictires for you to see. To time this all perfectly, the weather acted up 5 minutes before I started photographing, so that pissed me off. Who cares, I just carried a lamp with me under my arm in every room (fun image. I swear.) to get at least a little cosy light. Can’t beat sunlight. That’s ok. I will make a silly video once everything is perfect. I know you can’t wait for it.
That’s iiiit!! Did I tell you that I have no TV nor Internet yet? I love it! (Lie. It SUCKS). I am at the office now, Sunday night, 10pm. Sigh.
And here’s a shout out to my BEST Momma in the world. Seriously, you can not BELIEVE how much she helepd me with all that craze and I am SO thankful.
That’s not it yet. Sylvia – she definitely is my dearest and closest best friend and I am so BLESSED to have her by my side! She spent hours and hours in Zurich and now in Basel to help me pack, unpack, setting up everything and especially sorting out my MOUNTAINS of clothes and organizing them in my closet. Besides that she was there when I had my breakdowns cause of this situation which is still not the easiest for me. Saying goodbye to Zurich and all my dreams there wasn’t easy at all and I have a hard time letting go. THANK YOU my sweet friend, you are my lifesavior, love you!! If you made it till here, congrats!! Happy Monday, I hope it is a marvelous one for you!!
How was YOUR weekend?
