had Saturday Sunday Monday
that Recon for
housewarming suburbs wife’s consumption fueled
Will Ferrell – Old School.
The only difference off course being that we had no plans on going to Home Depot, now that we have forsaken the all too dull lifestyle of weekend IKEA shopping 🛒.
Instead we had a gift card for a “romantic” getaway to Dyvig Seaside hotel booked, which we had gotten last year in birthday 🎂 present from the in-laws. It was an all-inclusive deal with a three course dinner, wine menu and breakfast next morning. What an excellent present 🎁 for a middle aged couple with three kids.
Mom-in-law actually asked us back then, if we would like that or prefer another present, and with out hesitation we just said yes – hell yes. Only when it came to booking, we found out that there were only two choices of venue and check-in could not be done on a Saturday 🤔. As the hotel was a three hour drive away, we definitely didn’t want to go on a Friday after work, so it had to be a Sunday to Monday trip. So even though it was “free of charge” it was still a three hour drive, a bridge toll, and a day off work. – Dammit. Note to self – we are NOT upgrading anything.
Oh, but wait – isn’t the hotel just 20km off the border to Germany. Hell yes. We are doing some discount grocery shopping 🛒 on the way home on Monday’s then. 😍🔥.
On the not upgrading part, we managed to get by NOT upgrading to the sea side view – cause the sun 🌞 sets at 16.30 in Denmark 🇩🇰 anyways these days. Also we managed to NOT upgrade with an apaterif for dinner, and NOT getting any additional courses then the 3 that was included. Lastly we managed to NOT buy anything in the minibar.
The hotel 🏨 itself, was super nice 👍 as you can see below;
Lastly, as mentioned this Monday was then spent discount grocery shopping in Germany, a three hour drive home listening to FIRE and blogging podcasts, and watching the markets tank due to the corona virus in China. Ps. Note to self. Chinese markets bottomed out after 1 1/2 month in 2003 when struck by the SARS 😷 flu. Quick strategy – when pay 💰 day comes, put it in local insurance, telecom or medico. Next month, find a ETF covering Chinese market.
Ps. They won 8-2 in case you were wondering. ⚽️
