It is Friday and I have to say what a week it has been:

Greetings to all you ladies and gentlemen of the world wide web. Think about it, its already Friday again and I have to ask, where did this week go? Because if I am going to be completely honest, I have no clue where it has gone. The fact is that the days have just flown away from me, but then again this week has kinda been crazy or out of the ordinary for me. So tell me guys and girls, how has your week been treating you? At some points, better then mine has been. I am not saying that my week has been that bad, but so many things have happened that has kinda flipped things upside down for me. I guess that the reality is that some weeks are just like what I have had or still having.
So before I continue on the main topic fo this post I wish to step off the track and tell you guys a little bit about the story behind these photos that I have included in this post. I took these once a few years back while I was living in Spain and the city of Malaga. There reason for me moving to Spain is simple, a Scandinavian company offered me a job and I accepted. Well, it didn't turn out as I had hoped in getting paid what I was offered, but then again you learn through experience right? Not that, I enjoyed living in Malaga and to this daydreaming about going back at some point in time. Anyway, all these photos are from the area where I ended up renting an apartment.
So I guess its about time for me to get started on the main topic for the day! As mentioned previous, it has so far been a crazy week on so many levels, some of it has been negative and some has been positive. Okay, I might have oversold the part that the craziness in the week, cause both Monday and Tuesday has been pretty good, but the bad part came for a visit on Wednesday. Lets put it like this, it is going to cost me a pretty penny. It all started with my sink and kitchen faucet falling apart while trying to find the emergency switch for the water I managed to do so the wall pretty much came tumbling down over me. On top of this, I went on breaking my girlfriend's favourite full-figure mirror just a short while after.
So you can say that this day was the perfect storm of bad luck or whatever you want to call it, but there is one thing that bothers me. This thing is the wall, or it wasn't the entire wall that came down but the tiles on the wall. The entire wall with tiles came tumbling down over me and I can tell you that it was painful. Another weird thing is that we couldn't find any emergency switch for the water either, but luckily we managed to get the attention of our landlord, at midnight. At least we managed to get the sink and faucet fixed, but the kitchen wall will be fixed tomorrow. There has been some arguing about who is going to cover the damages that have been done to the apartment.
Yes, our landlord tried to be smart and wanted us to pay for the damages, but as I stated the tiles were faulty or put up by someone who did a crap job. After a lot of back and forth, we came to the agreement that I pay for the material and they pay for the labour. I know that it might seem unfair since the damage most likely has happened before we moved in, but at the same time, it's not that big of a deal. We are talking about a few hundred and its history. As I see it, it's not worth ruining a good and productive relationship with them over it. Maybe I am too nice when it comes to these things but it's not worth to become hostile over such small things like this. How would you have handled this?
Now we have arrived at the amazing day of Friday and I am positive that we have left the period of bad luck behind us for now. I can't possibly imagine that we have more of this in store for us at the moment. The truth is that I have been a bit worried about touching things here in our apartment in the last couple of days, worried about breaking more things. Maybe not so strange since so much has broken in such a short period of time. Might sound a bit weird, but I don't want to have to replace more things or stuff in the apartment at the moment and if something like this happened again it would be overly embarrassing for me. Anyway, its time for me to wrap this post up and I for sure hope you guys will have an amazing weekend.
