Honey, I'm home!

I can only call that out to Tyke when I get home from work in the late afternoon and he is more than ready to greet me but so is Gandhi. They both stand behind the front door when I walk in and I hurriedly have to park my bike in the corner of the hallway so I can greet both of them extensively. I do have to say that I have to cuddle Tyke a bit more than Gandhi because Tyke needs more of it. He is like my child, after all, and has missed me the most.

I have downloaded a program with which I can read and work on PDF documents and it was about time too and I do not know why I did not think of this sooner. Better late than never and it works great and now I am compatible with whatever documents I get from my boss. That is that little problem solved and it was so easy to. We were more or less compatible in a very round about way before this. 

I finished the translations this morning and I must have been very wide awake and perky because I got the last one done very quickly and easily. There was some terminology that I thought I was going to trip over but when I carefully read the paragraphs, and in my head rephrased the sentences, it all started to make sense to me. This middle aged head is still capable of pulling off a stunt or two.

I arrived at work ready to start off and we dug right in. I like my boss and we hit it off real well. She is a no nonsense woman just like me and she is smart. I do appreciate her way of working and her whole approach. She liked my translations and only changed a few things in accord with me who made no objections. She does know enough English. 

Tomorrow I will be working on the temporary website in English that will be up until the permament new one is. I am looking forward to that. My boss think I am intelligent and takes me seriously and gives me responsibilities. I have lots of jobs waiting for me and will be tackling those one by one. 

When I got home, I saw that my overgrown trees and bushes on the patio had completely been trimmed down to the ground and I was so relieved about that because it had been bothering me for quite a while. The housing corporation had promised me that they would send by a crew but that had been some time ago and I had heard nothing about it since. Now I will prevent anything from growing there again because there simply is no space. I do not need that much greenery where my laundry should dry.

Long overdue for you. I am tickled pink!
