RAK First Week


Welcome to the first week of RAK, hope you had fun!
I had an unusal week, on Monday I fallen ill so I spent two days at home...ok no office (this is the only positive side) but being ill is not properly a good way to enjoy the warmth of the home :-( Despite all, I had the chance to do my RAK. I gave my friend my old sofa and for ten days we used a mattress in the living room (horrible and unconfortable situation) but luckily on Tuesday morning IKEA delivered my new sofa. My RAK was giving the courier man a tip! I know that for most of you (not Italians) giving a tip is a routine but here, in Italy, it's not...well, if you like you can give it but if you don't ... no problem as tip is already included in the price. As for me I never give a tip but this time I took the chance to do a good act..."carpe diem" as Latins taught us! Thanks for taking part...see you next week, 12th February.
Don't forget to use the linky tool here below in order to share your RAK (starting from tonight at 00.01 PM CET till Saturday 08.00 AM CET)
PS in the pic my new sofa hope you like it :-)


Benvenuti alla prima settimana di RAK, spero vi siate divertiti.
Per quanto mi riguarda ho avuto una settimana abbastanza movimentata; lunedì mi sono ammalata...quindi niente ufficio per due giorni (che di per sè potrebbe anche esssere una cosa positiva) anche se non è proprio il modo ideale per godere il calore della casa. Nonostante tutto sono riuscita ugualmente a fare il mio atto di gentilezza. Una decina di giorni fa ho regalato il mio vecchio divano ad un'amica e ho utilizzato un materasso in sala per sostituirlo (situazione terribilmente scomoda). Finalmente martedì mattina IKEA mi ha consegna il divano nuovo e io ho colto l'occasione di fare il mio atto di gentilezza dando la mancia al corriere. So che per molti di voi (non Italiani) dare la mancia e un gesto abituale e scontato ma non qui in quanto la mancia è già inclusa nel prezzo. Quindi, questa volta ho colto l'occasione per fare un bel gesto o come direbbero i Latini "carpe diem". Grazie per aver partecipato...ci vediamo la settimana prossima il 12 Febbraio
Non dimenticate di aggiungere il link al vostro post qui sotto così da condividere il vostro RAK ( a partire dalla mezzanotte di oggi fino a sabato mattina alle 08.00)
PS nella foto il mio nuovo divano, spero vi piaccia.

  9. Hi Manu. I don't have a blog but I came over from Betsy's blog. I have known her and many of her blog friends for a long time and thought I would participate in RAK again. Thank you for hosting it this year.
    My RAK is a little thing, but this past week I was at a nearby café enjoying a latte and a croissant. As I was leaving, I picked up two additional large chocolate chip cookies for our building superintendent and our cleaner.
    Coincidentally, when I arrived back, they had just started their coffee break and were delighted with the cookies! They thanked me again later in the afternoon. A little thing, but it made me smile to see their smiles.

    1. Such a wonderful surprise to your colleges, Suza!
      I received as a surprise treat two cookies one afternoon at work - and that really made me happy and kept going the rest of the afternoon :)

  10. Such a lovely gift, to give the sofa to your friend (even when that ment that you needed to use mattresses for 10 days)! Your new sofa looks really pretty - congratulations! I hope you're getting better and are feeling well - I was also sick last weekend (it is time for colds now I guess).
    Thank you for this great challenge, Manu - And happy weekend!
