Busy, busy, busy!

I had a dream where me and my parents lived in one of them British council estates, and my parents tried to convince me to go for a cruise to Sweden. Instead I went shopping in Espoo, a city in the metropolitan area of Finland.
In another dream it was January, and the sun shone and there was no snow and the leaves in trees and bushes were in full bloom. I guessed it was because of global warming.
I rode my bicycle on a dirt path, with my arms up in the air, yelling “Whoooooooo!”
In another dream, I was an angel and welcomed Leelah Alcorn on the throne in Heaven. It made me feel very emotional.

I got up in the morning about at eleven o’clock, took my morning medicine, dressed into a sunflower- yellow blouse and a lemon- yellow dress, and dabbed lotion on my face.
I went to the department store to buy some iced coffees.
Once back home I hoovered the floor, washed a load of laundry, and clipped my nails. I also put on some jewellery, basic earrings and a necklace pendant in the shape of a white and yellow wooden daisy.

Later the day me and Mirette left, we went out for some errands; I took out the trash (two bags of household waste, and a broken headboard from one of the kitchen drawers) and mailed some cards (three name- day cards and one birthday card), and took two bills (electricity and broadband) to the social office (and took friendship selfies with Mirette, like we always do when visiting the social office), and then we took a train to Helsinki.

Once in Helsinki, we travelled to Mirette’s home on a subway. Once there, we gathered all the empty bottles and cans and took them to recycling to the local Lidl. Mirette made almost fifty euros!
I absolutely adore people who collect empty cans and bottles and recycle them. They keep the city clean, save the environment, and get money from it! How cool is that?

We travelled to Grass Cape on a subway and went to Lapland Cape, where we went to Lappish Spring. I introduced Mirette to my mother and also Mella, Tina, and Kata. I drank coffee and ate chocolate chip cookies, Mirette drank tea and ate sandwiches.

I told Mella that in December 2006, about ten years ago, I was diagnosed with schizophrenia, and I would never have guessed that a decade later my life could be this awesome.

We walked back to Grass Cape, and took the subway to the city center and a train to Mole Hill.

We went to the shopping center, and visited the department store. I bought a small pink plastic spade I am going to use to shovel the snow and ice away from zebra crossings and stairways where the council doesn’t shovel it. I also bought a microwaveable and a can of soup, and some treats, and also plastic spoons and paper cups for the get- together I am going to have at my home on Sunday.

Once back at my home, I put the meals into the fridge and put the shovel into my backpack. I am going to start using it tomorrow.
I didn’t go to the gym today, I had been far too busy.
I watched Doctor Who on Netflix, so I could make sense of the Pandorica story arc.

Tomorrow I will receive the monthly allowance.
I will go to Mirette’s home with her early in the morning, I will help her tidy up her home with her social worker.
After that I will go to the bank to withdraw the allowance, then I will go to the dressmaker, pay for the mended clothes, and bring some new clothes for mending.
My H&O worker will visit me at half past one o’clock in the afternoon, while talking to her I will wash the dishes.
Me and Mirette will go see the movie Sing right after that, then we will go to WeeGee art museum, there’s a free entrance every Friday evening.
I might not go visit my mother like I do every Friday, I don’t have enough time.
