And when I say work, I mean WORK. 🙂
I have many things I need to do this fall, and I’m glad to say I didn’t start on any of them on my vacation. After all, vacation is vacation, and getting frustrated by the slowness with which I’d be getting anything done seemed to me the opposite of what vacation is about, so the last 3 weeks was all about me doing things I like and that relax me and not thinking about anything remotely work/study-related.
I’m proud to say I’m very good at that. 😀
I can’t say I didn’t get my rest and that my batteries aren’t full and ready to tackle my workload, it’s just that I don’t really appreciate the fact that I can never really choose how to spend my days as I do need to work to be able to actually spend my day leisurely these 3 weeks that I can.
Sometimes I really, really wish I were rich.
Basically, I spent my days, reading, cooking, swimming, enjoying solitude, and for a while children’s antics (my boyfriend’s nieces were there for a few days, they are incredibly great and tiring at the same time, I should think like all children). 🙂
I only got to read 10 books (which is not as much as I usually can). But of those 10, 7 were the Harry Potter series so I consider myself lucky. Although a bit depressed as well. It’s one of those stories that makes you lose yourself in it, and when it’s over, you can’t believe you have to go back to life where there is no more of that world.
Yes, I’m on of those people who can get lost in fantasy. And believe me, it doesn’t make for easy living.
This is it for my get back post – here are some photos of my vacation.

P.S. I was going to post the photo of my favourite bathing suit but as it only displays my behind, I decided against it (taken by my boyfriend of course). 🙂
