On Saturday I went to the support group for mentally challenged people, who hear voices as a part of their illness. Many support groups and hobby groups are going to go on a summer break, just when people have enough time to go there! I find it rather peculiar.
Then to the art workshop. I really like the art workshop, but I wish they came up with new subjects instead of recycling the same ones; cubistic painting, paper sculpture, dream towns in shoeboxes… instead of the workshop, I checked out the art show and practically fell in love with it!
I really should go to art museums more often, considering that I have a Museum Card and besides, there are plenty of amazing museums in the metropolitan area.
Then I went to Mirette’s home to do housework.
It was a beautiful sunny day, and I felt happy and carefree.
Once back at my own home, I hoovered my bed and mattress and dressed my bed in clean sheets. In the evening, I watched Doctor Who on Netflix, because I wanted to catch up on River Song’s timeline.
Last night I had an amazing dream where I visited Säkylä, a town in Finland, with my friend Mella. In another dream, I visited my DeviantART friend Sabath, who lived in a funny apartment house that looked like a modern art piece made by children, and my favourite actor Roger Delgado was there as well. He was wearing a pair of patterned two- piece pyjamas.
After getting up in the morning, I took my medicine and dressed up, surfed on FaceBook, and then I went to see my parents.
I called my mother and asked her if it’s okay that I come for a visit, she said yes.
I took a bus to my parents’ home. My older brother was there as well, and later my dad came home.
Mom gave me 40 euros, which was the rest of the monthly allowance she gave me last Monday. She has taken up the habit of rationing the money, because she still wants to take care of her daughter’s finances, bless her.
I decided to go visit Mirette, so I walked to the station to catch a train to Helsinki. There was a PA announcement that the trains were delayed, so I had to take a bus.
On my way to Helsinki, I called my grandmother and talked with her. We decided that I am going to visit her next month; I am going to arrive on Monday, and stay till Sunday.
Once in Helsinki, I went to Cybershop and bought a new pair of sunglasses. They were in discount, I only had to pay a fiver for them.
I took a subway to Mirette’s home, and picked some of her stuff; a pair of boots, ink pens, and her diary, and a letter she had received. Then I took a bus to the hospital, her dad was visiting her as well. I gave her the stuff, watched a bit of the Finnish versus Russia ice hockey tournament, and then I left.
I took a tram to the city center and went to Forum shopping center, but what do you know, all the shops were closed because it was well past six o’clock in the evening. My oh my oh my, how time flies.
I took a train home, and went to the department store. I bought a pair of underpants, a box of coffee grounds, a ball of knitting yarn, and three packets of Band- Aids that were in discount.
Once back home, I put my new belongings to their rightful places. I washed a load of laundry, and continued knitting.
Later the evening I went back to the department store, this time I bought a bottle of eucalyptus- scented Fairy dishwashing liquid. I know it’s not as environmentally friendly as the ones sold in eco- markets, but the organic product is not always the most effective product. I will still continue using eco- friendly laundry detergent.
Once back home, I took my evening medicine, and went to bed with my knitwork, diary, laptop, and smartphone.
Tomorrow, if I am awake early enough, I will go to the health center to make an appointment for allergy tests.
I will receive the monthly allowance tomorrow. I will pay a bill, order a new backpack, and then mail a package to a friend. I should also buy food, hygiene products, and underwear, but I am not sure if I can afford them all.
Later the day I will go to the Pearl House in Pole and stay there till closing time. Then I will go to Amos Anderson art museum, and then to Girls’ House.
