The past week I was visiting my grandma in Kangasala. It's another place I have had lots of dreams about, usually of the morbid kind, but when I was walkabout in the city center I didn't notice any kind of nostalgia.
This morning grandma walked with me to the bus station, gave me a hug and ten euros and then I took the bus that left 7:40 a.m. to Helsinki.
I was feeling rather sleepy so I took a nap in the bus, I slept as sweetly as a baby and woke up when we arrived to Martinlaakso. I went to the toilet to have a pee, but didn't know how to flush it.
I sure love my grandma just like I love every single member of my family (even my bastard asshole brother), but she gets annoying when she's always nagging about my health, hygiene, what to do what not to do and slurring how I am a nice girl. But that's what grandmothers do!
Once in Helsinki, the temperature was slightly warmer. I lugged my suitcase to Elielinaukio bus station and took the bus 452K to Myyrmäki.
Once in Myyrmäki, I went home and I sorted out my mail (I had received a notification about the Ghost World
DVD I had ordered, and another notification about another package), put my belongings to their right places (I hadn't forgotten anything at my grandma's place), took a shower (I scrubbed my ass thoroughly as it smelled like shit), had some Karelian pies and oranges for snack and noticed that it was about midday, so I guess this was like a normal morning when I sleep late and have my breakfast just before midday.
After a little refreshment, I was on the move; I went to the bank, deposited all my change and then withdrew them, went to the library to pick up two requests and pay my library fees, went to the post office to retrieve the packages, the DVD and a parcel from naggingfishwife
, and then grocery shopping.
I forgot to take my broadband bill to the social office. Maybe next week.
I bought green garbage bags, apples, tangerines, tomatoes, toilet cleaning liquid, milk, eggs, toast, rye bread and something else I can't remember right now. I managed to afford everything I bought.
The one thing I really hate in living check to check is that once a week when I receive my weekly grocery money, I go shopping and buy everything I need, say, I buy toilet paper, milk and salad because they're about to end, and then run out of money and the next day I run out of cheese, household paper and tomatoes, and can't afford more of them until next week. But I mustn't feel too crappy about it, after all things my financial things will start looking up to me after I get a job.
I had a hard time hauling the shopping bags up the Kitler hill. Once home, I put the groceries to their proper places and opened both of the packages; like I mentioned earlier, Hill had sent me a Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Ravage toy (she likes cats just as I do ^_^) and a box of Whitman's Sampler chocolate confections. They were a tasty treat while watching the movie Ghost World
(the coconut creams were my favourite, I like the taste and scent of coconut very much!).
I was feeling a bit sleepy, so I took a nap. This time I didn't feel guilty about it, but I was thinking that I should buy the counterpane and cuddle blanket soon.
After getting up, I was in a really refreshed and cheerful mood. I like the kind of naps that don't take a long time and make me feel energized.
I decided to go downtown to Helsinki, I had a little business to do there.
I put on my outerwear and boots and off I was, and I decided to walk to the Malminkartano train station. I felt like having a little fresh air and exercise.
Once in Helsinki, I went to a jewelry shop named Ninja in Kamppi shopping center and bought a neon red comb. I have to brush and comb my hair every morning, so I truly need one.
I just chilled around in the city center, then took a bus home.
This evening I watched Ghost World
, brewed some strong and sweet vanilla tea, took a warm shower and all around had a good time. Soon I'm off to sleep.
