When I woke up, I noticed that Mirette had already come home from Riikka’s party, and the ceiling lamp was on because neither of us had bothered to turn it off. I didn’t mind, it just made me snicker a bit when I thought about how we could manage to sleep with the lights on.
When I got up, it was only quarter past ten o’clock in the morning, so me and Mirette had plenty of time to prepare for Heidi’s birthday party.
At first I had thought it would already be something like two or four o’clock in the afternoon and we were already too late.
Actually Heidi’s birthday is on Monday, but it’s better to organize parties during weekends because most people are at work or school on weekdays.
I took my morning medicine, had a proper wash, and put on my new pyjama pants, the ones with rainbow and panda bear pattern.
I fetched my bed sheets and winter coat from the drying room, took my old diary to the storage room and fetched another diary. I also wiped the kitchen counters clean, and washed the plastic boxes where Suavecita brought the baked treats to my Valentine’s day party, I am supposed to give them back to her.
Me and Mirette went to the supermarket to buy some treats; a bag of crisps, a big bottle of diet coke, and a box of Shrovetide buns.
We took a train to Stone City, where we met Odessa and Eleclya, and later Suavecita picked us up on her car. She drove us to Heidi & Jari’s home, Ansku was already there and Suski arrived a couple of hours later.
We had a good time, eating treats and listening to Nightwish, but I started feeling anxious because everyone was making such big noise and some of the party guests were getting annoyed and started snapping at each other. I had to take three tranquillizers.
In the evening, Suavecita drove us to Jumbo, Odessa sat on the front seat, and I sat on the back seat squashed between Eleclya and Mirette. By then my tranquillizers kicked in, and I started leaning on my side.
Me and Mirette caught the bus %&” to Aviator and then a train to Mole Hill.
Once back home, I took my evening medicine and had a wash.
Then I took my winter coat to the balcony for the night so it’s going to freshen, and took the biological waste out so it’s not going to stink up my kitchen during the night. I will do those things every evening; take the winter coat to the balcony, and the biological waste to recycling.
Tomorrow I will go visit my parents, and then I will probably go to the gym. I also need to do housework.
I have been thinking of visiting my parents only twice a week, on Tuesdays when my mom gives me the weekly allowance, and on Sundays, which is the usual visiting day. It’s just that I don’t always find anything special to do at my parents’ home; I just eat too much coffee and eat too much sugary treats, watch old VHS cassettes, look at my family photos, and squeeze my blackheads.
And it would be best for my parents if I didn’t visit them all too often, they need their own time as well.
