I slept till half past two o’clock in the afternoon, and after getting up I drank coffee in my bathrobe. Mirette packed their stuff and went to their own home, we hugged each other and agreed to meet again next Friday when we will go visit a couple of museums in downtown Helsinki.
I took a shower, washed my face and hair and body, after drying my hair I put some hair serum into it, and dressed up into a pair of Bart Simpson pyjama pants and a shirt with the print In The Loving Memory Of Rock’n’Roll.
I went to the Myyrmanni shopping center and returned bottles, then I bought a big carton of milk from Citymarket.
Once back home, I faced a dilemma; should I go out for a walk, or do the necessary housework, or just stay inside and drink coffee and surf on the Internet? I didn’t know if my mental health was well enough for doing them all, but I decided to go for a walk.
It was hot and humid outside, even if the sky was clouded up, and it had rained a little. I walked around in Malminkartano neighbourhood, and then went back home.
I really should go for walks and bike rides more often, it’s healthy for both my mental and physical well- being.
Once back home, I hoovered the floor and scrubbed the toilet bowl, and took my mattress outside to dust it.
I also called my mother, we had a nice talk and agreed that on Tuesday we will go shopping for new underwear for me.
In the evening I took my medicine and had a wash, and went to bed.
As usual in the evenings, I was feeling a bit down in the dumps. I know that nothing bad has happened, it’s just my usual mental wellbeing.
Tomorrow I am going to finish the rest of the housework; I need to take out the recycling, take the carpet out for dusting, wash the dishes, and wash a load of laundry.
I am also going to take a bill to the social office, then I will go to the health center to have a painful lump in the nape of my neck checked out. I am going to bring along a book, considering that on Monday, especially after a holiday, there are going to be plenty of patients waiting for their turns.
I will also go to the gym; I will walk on the treadmill for half an hour, and then use all the exercise machines. Hopefully it will cheer me up and make me feel better.
