I slept very well and had nice dreams, it was nice not having nightmares for a while.
In the morning I noticed that my back didn’t hurt anymore. There was a strange feeling in it, but it wasn’t too painful.
I got up at half past ten o’clock in the morning, and managed to do the morning routines; take my morning medicine, brush my teeth, wash my face and neck, shower my underbelly, lotion my skin, dress into clean clothes.
When I was putting on my tights, I remembered that I had forgot to do the stretches, exercises, and yoga I was supposed to do every morning, but I was so Zen that I didn’t let it bother me. I decided to do them tomorrow morning.
After breakfast, I called my mom and told her I am going to visit them, and this time I will ride my bicycle to their place. Mom said she is going to visit IKEA today and asked me to come too, but told me not to wear pyjama pants. I told her I am wearing a Dirndl dress and a Monster High blouse, she said it was okay.
I rode my bicycle to Raappavuori. The weather was nice, calm and pleasantly chilly, and there was a slight sunshine.
Both mom and dad were home. I ate lunch with mom, even if I had eaten a breakfast a while ago. For lunch we had fried potatoes, omelette roll filled with chive- flavoured cream cheese, and grated carrots and turnips. All the foods tasted delicious, but the grated turnips smelled bad.
Later the afternoon, me and mom took the bus 565 to Espoo, we were going to visit the IKEA where we bought my drawer. Lauski was in the same bus, we talked for a while and then I asked if she wants to come to mine and Suavecita’s birthday party on December 12th.
Once in IKEA, mom bought a grey cotton tablecloth and told me she can buy me a duvet set as an early birthday present. I found one with a really colourful design, but they didn’t have them in smaller size, only those for couples in queen- sized beds.
Mom bought a small bar of chocolate, we ate it on the bus back to Raappavuori. Dad had gone to Itis to look for new clothes.
I drank two cups of coffee, then I hugged and kissed mom goodbye and told them to take care, and then I left. It was getting dark already.
I rode my bicycle to Myyrmäki, once home I decided not to go to the gym today. On Sundays the Myyrmäki fitness center, both the gym and swim hall, are open till five o’clock in the evening; or actually, you can access them both until five o’clock in the evening, but you absolutely have to leave at half past five o’clock.
I went to the shopping mall to buy an iced latte and look for Xmas stuff. I visited a toy shop named BR Lelut, I saw a super cute baby seal toy and picked it up. It started blinking its eyes, yapping like a baby seal, and moving its flippers and tail. I wondered if it was possessed by Satan, or if it would pee on me. I put it back.
I noticed that BR Lelut and Hennes & Mauritz sell lots of Frozen merchandise. But of course.
I also visited Hennes & Mauritz to look for a simple pair of black trousers, preferably with pockets, and preferably in large size because the aforementioned shop sells very small clothes.
I found one pair of trousers and took it to the fitting room, they fit me perfectly.
To be honest, the only kind of pants I like are pyjama pants, but I might need something decent. It does no harm, anyway. And besides, the trousers cost only 20 euros, it’s perfect for my budget.
I also visited Life, a health shop, to look for nutritional supplements; vitamin D, multivitamin, biotin, omega 3, and garlic oil capsules are those I need.
I should buy those that are affordable, sold in huge amounts, and preferably stock up on them so I won’t run out of them too quickly.
I went back home, wrote into my diary a bit, and then I went out to dust my mattress; I hung it on the iron rail that people use when they dust their carpets and beat it with a plastic beater a couple of times, and then I took it back in. I might hoover it later today, and then I need to dress my bed into clean linen.
Tomorrow my ASPA worker Kaarina will visit me at half past two o’clock in the afternoon. Here’s to hoping I will be awake early enough and do all the morning routines before she arrives, setting my alarm clock to ring early enough never helps because I don’t function well enough if I don’t get to wake up and get up from the bed in my own terms.
I will finish the rest of the housework; wash the dishes, dust the carpet, swab my writing desk, take out the metal, paper, and carton waste, take the bottles to recycling, and then I will go to Helsinki and visit an art museum named Amos Anderson. It’s the only museum in the metropolitan area that’s open on Mondays, so I have taken up the habit of visiting it each Monday.
Girls’ House will open at three o’clock in the afternoon, I will go there to write my diary and perhaps enjoy a cup of cocoa.
I am also going to the swim hall.
