Adding to my recent catalogue of bumps, bruises & scrapes (including 1 from trapping my arm between the freezer & washing machine) I slipped this morning on the way to work & in my effort to keep myself upright bent 2 fingers backwards! Painful...but not as painful as the shockwaves that have hit me everytime I put weight on my right foot since then! Think I may have sprained my ankle! Regardless, I was expected to keep running around work til 7.30pm! Ouch! :(

Huhu..

had a very interesting day yesterday...

Do you know the "Theodora-Foundation"? It's a foundation for clowns going into hospitals and making sick kids laugh.
Nothing more - but hey - it's so good!

Well yesterday I was working for this foundation:
we tried to get so many clowns as possible in Zurich to laugh at the same time - (sponsored by starbucks, bodyshop, tibits etc.) - and we actually got about 200 clowns together. After that there were 2 Rock/Pop concerts ...and we got a lot of money.

Whilst working, I got to speak with those clowns, to even let them work on me (magic is so "magical"- i learnded)...and I got the chance to see them in duty -actually working with kids.
You can't believe how important their work is. How they can conjure up a smile on a sad childs face...

It's magic!

So it was a very long, and hard day - but totally worth it...
So my message to you - if you see those guys looking for money - and you have some extra - give it to them..it's a very good cause....

does someone have a similar experience?

(And yes I'm terrible sorry for all of my mistakes in this text- but I am kinda tired ...and...it's hard to switch back to English ;) when you're constantly yawning ;))

Good night

Nora
Ps: I've never posted a pic before: But if it's working you should see 2 of the theodora-foundation-hospital-clowns and a few of the first kids on the sceen ;).
Also one when they're in the hospital.

I hate deliveries, waiting for them everything about them, I hope you get your money back...I'm just battling with my antivirus it's being a right arse..I wish we could go back to an old fashioned lifestyle again I am sure life would be less stressful.
I'm going to take my anger out on the crosstrainer at the gym,
Hope you have some better luck

I used to have to deal with UPS/TNT/DHL on a regular basis. The only thing I can suggest is you find a number for them and give someone a call, tell them it's a part for a computer or something which belongs to a vessel which is setting sail tomorrow for a cruise of 6 weeks, this package absolutely must be on the vessel as you cannot set sail without it, if you cannot sail your gonna loose the money paid for the cruise, any help you can give me would be great....Or it's part of a computer system and for every minute it's down you're loosing money... blah blah blah....

Don't get angry with them, plead/reason rather than shouting, make them think they are doing you a favour, let them think they may save your job if they can help.

It may not get there any faster but at least you might get some answers.

Not fun having to get so much done in one day but kinda my fault for falling behind in the first place.
