Bells on a Sunday
It’s what they call the First Advent here. The official start of xmas madness proper. In a way, it is a consolation that I am not obliged to take part. As soon as it turned clear that I will not be able to afford the luxury price Lufthansa has put on tickets to Sofia, I decided that the best thing I could do is talk mum into flying to Poland. Her best friend has earlier invited her over and...

Apparently some still don’t use annotation online, so here’s one tool I use when AwesomeHighlighter is too slow or just out of order. I like both, actually.
