I woke up, catching my breath. I looked at my smartphone and noticed that it was only 5:46 in the morning.
I got up and went to the bathroom to empty my MoonCup, and then I went back to bed.
I had a dream where I was in Helsinki, it was a chilly February morning and the sun was rising. I was walking around and feeling happy, and then I woke up, feeling a lot better.
I took my morning medicine, had a wash, drank the first coffee of the morning, and changed my clothes numerous times. At first I wore a colourful tunic, but it made me feel like a clown. I put on a slinky green dress, but it made me feel like a harlot. I put on a green blouse that I had picked from the ironing pile, and put on my Minute Maid dress.
I checked my bank account balance on my smartphone, and noticed that I hadn’t received money.
I decided to spend most of the day doing housework. I started by hoovering and mopping the floor; when I was finished, I had pear- sized drops of sweat rolling down my forehead, and a nose full of snot. Then I went downstairs to the storage room to sort out my belongings.
I went out for errands; I took a big plastic bag full of old useless stuff to a charity shop container, then I mailed Emjuso’s name day card and Sandy’s birthday card. Then I bought a huge packet of coffee maker filter papers from the supermarket.
I was feeling a bit bored, and didn’t want to go home yet. I called my mother and asked her if I can come over, she said yes. I took a bus to my parents’ home, drank coffee and ate treats with my mother, and soon my dad came home from work.
I decided to go for a walk before heading home. I went to see my old high school, the first one I had studied in, and it was just like my mother had said, it had been demolished and now there was only a gravel pit left.
I went to the bus stop, and took the next bus back home.
I remembered that I had “discount points” or whatever they are called on my membership card to the local supermarket, worth five euros. I went to see what I could buy, so I bought three dishwashing brushes and a bottle of Innocent Antioxidant smoothie, the green one with kiwi and spirulina.
I went back home. I looked for more stuff to give away to charity, scrubbed the toilet bowl and bathroom sink and the plastic surface of the washing machine.
In the evening I knitted while watching Abe’s Oddyssee walkthrough video on YouTube.
I took my evening medicine, took a shower, and went to bed.
Tomorrow will be a busy day; I will go to the knitting & novel reading group in the local library, and take my mendable clothes there for the free- of- charge workshop.
Then I will go to Lapland Spring, then I will go to the gym. At some point I should mop the bathroom floor.
