I had enough money to order myself a pair of new vegan biker bitch boots from Heluna, but I learned that they didn't have them in my size anymore, at least not in the online shop.
I decided to save the money and go buy the boots from their actual shop in Torkkelinmäki, it's a short walk from the Sörnäinen subway station in Helsinki. Next week I will receive more money, and provided I don't waste all the shoe money on clothes, jewelry, diaries, candy, DC Lobo comics, Etsy shopping, I might be able to buy a brand spankin' new pair of vegan biker bitch boots.
I also have to pay my membership fee to Friends of Kiasma, and the partial payment for my laptop and USB dongle, and the partial payment to Suavecita for the new shoes, and the use charge (or whatevs it's called) of my bank account. Blehh. Now that I think about it, the next Wednesday 22nd is in July so I can manage for a few months with my old biker bitch boots, and I have the shoes Suavecita bought me. So, off to Etsy!
It was a bastich trying to log in to the online bank service because there was some sort of malfunction, but finally I succeeded.
After doing the morning routines as scrupulously as I could, I went to the bank to withdraw some money and buy a sufficient amount of groceries from Citymarket in Myyrmanni shopping mall.
Once back home, I put the stuffs to their rightful places and then headed out for some discreet shopping.
I took the bus 53 to Pakkala and visited Jumbo, the local shopping mall. I went to Hennes & Mauritz to buy a hoodie I had had my eye on for a while but they didn't have it anymore, blehh. I didn't let it bother my Zen so I visited BodyShop to buy a nail buffer and then Stockmann to buy a nail file and Suomalainen Kirjakauppa to buy two new diaries.
I took the bus 650 to Helsinki, and visited Happy Socks on Iso- Roba to buy a pair of new socks, white- red- blue ones with a flowery pattern. Then I went to Hennes & Mauritz on Aleksanterinkatu and bought two bracelets, one with sunflowers and one with exotic flowers of all colors.
I took the M train to Myyrmäki. Once home, Kaima from ASPA came for a home visit.
I told hir I have been doing okay ever since I got over my depression. I washed a load of laundry, arranged my stuff and after zie left, I hoovered the floor. Once I left, I left the kitchen window and balcony door open to let fresh air in.
I took the bus 53 to Raappavuori, momsie wasn't home but zie had left 40 euros for me. I ate all their low- fat feta cheese and made a cup of coffee, then I took the bus 453 to Helsinki.
Girls' House was already closed, so I headed to Sokos and bought two tubes of face scrub or whatevs it's called, then I just wandered around downtown wondering what I should buy; I was thinking of buying a pink dress embroidered with colorful flowers, a pair of Ghostface- patterned leggings, or a pink sweater with the text Bitchin' on the front, or a cute Pusheen tank top, or a hoodie that bares your midriff with the print "BABE 23" on the front, or a new backpack, but they all were too expensive. To be honest, I'm glad I am not out of ideas.
I headed to Indian Bazar and almost bounced on the walls out of pure joy when I noticed that they still had that special headband I had been looking for! I bought one and then I decided to head home.
I took the M train to Myyrmäki. As usual when I take the M train home, the journey between downtown and Pasila train station feels like hours even if they're only less than five minutes apart.
Once in Myyrmäki, I visited Ärrä and bought a Spotify gift card. Once home, I uploaded my Spotify account to Premium, and enjoyed the fresh scent of my apartment.
I ordered a bunch of stuffs from Etsy.com; five issues of DC Lobo comics, a Celtic shamrock pendant with a flower- shaped copper base, a black- and- white portrait of Joey Ramone with a bottle of Carbona (not glue!), and something else I probably forgot.
I still had money left after my purchases, so I headed out to take a bag of useless stuff to a charity shop, a stack of books to the library and then went to Citymarket to buy a Mother's day card to my momsie and my grandmother (zie is the only relative with whom I stay in contact) and two spools of knitting yarn.
