We were out for dinner last night.
I ordered mushroom soup as an entre cause I never prepare anything with mushrooms in it at home (Hasi doesn't like mushrooms at all), so I often take the chance to eat something with mushrooms when we go out...
So when the soup arrived (after more then half'n hour) I was excited.
It was served in a huge bowl made out of bread. It really looked like a soup bowl and even had a lid.
It looked so nice.
Unfortunately I didn't have much time to enjoy that (I couldn't even take a picture with my camera) cause the bread bowl started to leak!
At first it was just one corner... "Hasi looked at me and said " EAT! FAST! "
But then it started leaking all around and I could do nothing about it!
My mouth was all watery and there went my soup!
Within ten seconds it was gone and the plate under the bowl was floated. The dark green paper napkin got all soaked and in my opinion helped prevent the worst.
I went up, went strait into the restaurants kitchen...
"Ursäkta! My soup bowl is leaking!"
The waitress started to run back to the table and started to apologize and then she tried to remove that plate from the table. But the problem was, that it was filled up to the edge and everybody could have guessed what would happen if the plate would be lifted up...
She did it anyways! She tried to take it back to the kitchen like that!
I couldn't believe what I just had witnessed...
After messing up my side of the table and floor with the dripping mushroom soup, she realized that it might be a good idea to get a tray.
Well, you can probably guess the rest of the story.
I did eventually get my soup, in a regular, real bowl. It tasted good and I was happy!
Also with the rest of the evening.
We got home in time to watch the dutch version of Idols and stayed up till around midnight...
But thinking of that soup event last night still puts a smile on my face!
It's been a busy week.
We did a lot at school, that language (swedish) starts to make sense to me, which is nice.
We had to work on our CV, write about our past, educations, work experience and future plans or goals and wishes...
AND I went to a meeting with a company who is searching for female bus drivers!
Yes, they say that they have lots of men working for them but they think that women can do that job so much better for many reasons.
So I have a very good chance to be able to get the bus drivers education, beginning in January, for free.
AND a very good chance to get a job right after that.
Bus driving sounds like fun and I'll definitely give it a try.
I've been thinking about following that career for quite a while now.
I love to drive trucks and I enjoyed working on my last job in Austria, but dealing with all those heavy pallets I had to move around and transport, was hard on my body.
Another big plus with this whole bus drivers thing is, that I will be able to work on different places in Sweden, in case we keep moving around like this. :)) *lol*
They wouldn't mind and promised they would have a job for me in every city in Sweden and even in France, if I would decide to move there... *lol*
Why on earth would I want to go to France??!!
I like it here and so does my small family.
Anyways, I'll have a personal meeting this next week and then I'll know more...
We'll make no plans though for the future, no big ones anyways.
We'll just go with the flow and see what opens up for us.
It's kinda fun to do that, although it's a bit scary at times.
We tend to think we must plan everything, we must have perspectives, plans, goals and that security feeling.
And yes, to a degree we do, because we are human.
But do we need all of that?
We have been given this (more or less) intelligent brain, that remembers so much and tries to dictate our lives every single moment.
It gets a life of it's own sometimes and makes up all kind of scenarios, doesn't it.
I have to admit that I had times in my life where that brain of mine got very close to driving me crazy.
Things have changed and so have I, thank goodness!
I keep wondering how life would be like, if we would sell pretty much all of our possessions and live a more simple life somewhere or on the road even. Maybe just for a couple of months, or a couple of years...
I don't know, sometimes that idea is very appealing to me, sometimes it's not.
But I'll definitely try to get more comfortable in going with that flow that is called life, or destiny.
Some call it life plan. Some think it is the plan they make for themselves. Some think it is made for us long before we are born.
But frankly, I don't care if there is a plan or not, I'll keep working on my independence of that brain of mine, of this doubt and fear factory in my head.
I'll keep working on being present with a smile on my face.
I know I'll get many smiles back for it!
Have a fantastic NOW-MOMENT everyone!
