So much coffee, so little sleep!

During the night between Friday and Saturday I stayed awake, because I had drunk too much coffee. I had so many things to do, like knitting and writing.

In the small hours, I took my morning medicine and dressed up.

I have decided to decline drinking coffee at my own home, it only makes me anxious and makes me lose my sleep. I have been thinking of giving up coffee altogether, I can always drink cocoa and tea.

I did some housework; I took some of the laundry off the drying rack and put them into my drawer, and I also wiped the worst stains off my nightstand.

When the shopping mall was opened, I went to the department store to buy groceries.
I recalled a bad memory when I was harassed during grocery shopping, and the memory wouldn’t leave me alone, so I was in a bad mood.

Once back home, I napped for a few hours. After getting up, I brushed my teeth, and then I had breakfast. I have actually forgotten how good oatmeal porridge tastes, and at least it’s very healthy.

I went to see my mother today, she was going to give me some money. I took a bus to my parents’ home, had lunch with them, and mom gave me 20 euros.

I took a bus back home, and visited the department store to buy butter, oatmeal cookies, lemon tea, Blue Fruits tea, interdental brushes, paper tissues, and something else I don’t remember right now.

Once back home, I put my stuffs to their rightful places.

I did some housework; I washed the dishes, hoovered the floor, and when I left, I took out the trash.

I took a train to Helsinki, then a subway to where Mirette lives.

Once at her place, we went grocery shopping. Mirette bought cocoa ingredients, and I bought breakfast (a container of lingonberry porridge), lunch (feta cheese- veggie casserole), and dinner (goat cheese- tomato soup).

Once back at Mirette’s home, I helped her do housework. I washed the dishes, picked up some trash, and re- arranged her stuff.

Later the evening we went downtown Helsinki to celebrate the changing of the year. We watched the fireworks, danced along to the music, and in the small hours we went back to Mirette’s home to sleep off the sleep debt.

Sunday, the first day of the year 2017, was spent nicely; we both lied in our beds, eating crisps and chocolate, and we watched the movies Madagascar 2 and RoboCop 2 on TV.

Today I got up in the afternoon, took my morning medicine, dressed up, and then I left.

I took a bus to a train station, and then a train home.

Once there, I went to the department store in the shopping mall to buy lunch, beetroot & goat cheese stew.
Once home, I warmed it in the microwave and ate it.

I was feeling rather sleepy, so I took a nap on the sofa- bed. I kept on waking up between hours, wondering if there was anything else I could do. After sleeping for solid two hours I got up and warmed some soup in the microwave and ate it, and had Blue Fruits tea and oatmeal cookies afterwards.

In the evening I went to the department store in the shopping center to buy a small pouch of Tazza cocoa, thanks to Mirette for introducing me to it ^_^ Once back home, I made some cocoa.

I had left my blanket, pillow, and mattress on the balcony, so I brought them back in, hoovered my bed and the mattress and dressed it in clean sheets.

I took my evening medicine, took a shower, and went to bed.

Tomorrow I will go visit my mother, she will give me the weekly allowance. I will buy groceries with it.
My H&O worker will visit me at four o’clock in the afternoon, I will wash the dishes and after that I will go to Late Winds to hang out, and then I will go to the gym.
I also need to do the rest of the housework; hoover and mop the floor including from under the furniture, scrub the bathroom, and swab the writing desk and kitchen counter.
