Actually it’s been kind of long week at work even though it’s a public holiday tomorrow and I took Friday off. I’m just so tired, I get to bed too late and then I have to get up earlier so I’m in work at a reasonable hour even if hubby drives me there.
It’s been much too cold to start the bicycle season yet. Maybe next week. My osteoarthritis really doesn’t approve of the cold and when biking I’d need gloves and even then my knuckles would be freezing.
I’m planning a small gathering of relatives on June 13th to celebrate middlest son’s graduation. Before that we are celebrating Middlest son’s white cap and youngest one just between us.
The school’s are out on the May 30th and now the graduates will have an online-ceremony, i.e. the headmaster’s speech and they receive the papers in mail. Youngest son goes to school to get his grade paper but there’s no ceremony for the whole school. I miss it, maybe even more than the kids, so I decided that we celebrate it just between the family and am now googling suitable cake recipes. I need to call eldest son so he can come too.
At work our interior decoration is getting along nicely. Last Friday we ditched an old bookshelf out and I said I’m getting agoraphobia due to it. Next week are about to receive new desks so the old ones are leaving probably on Monday or Tuesday. Since we also lose our clothes cabinets I had to take RA’s The Crucible poster home. It and the cabinets will be replaced by an art work.
All the tall shelves will be replaced with lower ones too and our desks will be facing the entrance. We’ve been clearing ten year layers of things. Ten years ago we had a big renovation in the whole house and spent 18 months in a building next to ours and of course at the time we moved back there was a hurry and all kinds of s**t was just dumped back. Now we don’t have to deal with clients so it’s easier to go through old things.
Took this from Zee.
10 days, 10 fictional crushes
Post an image of a fictional character who has been or still is your crush.
No names or explanations needed. TV, movie, book, comic, cartoon characters are valid.
No explanation is needed but I must confess that when I first lay my eyes on Lucius I was gone. I had it so bad.. He was probably my first fictional crush and I still love him even though he has his faults. It makes him human.
This morning I had a dream about one of our elder clients called Mrs M. She used to visit us sometimes several times per week and mostly due trouble with her phone or laptop. Then she stopped coming and I haven’t seen her for about two years now. Every now and then you think about how the people are when they come regularly and then not at all but that’s life.
In my dream I was on vacation with my family and suddenly my phone rang. For some reason I realized it was my work cell and I answered and it was Mrs. M. I was a bit short with her since I was annoyed that she dared to call me when I was on my holiday but she just said that she had tried to contact another person she knew from my earlier work place in the City library and then when she couldn’t get through she called me. She just said she wanted to say thank you for everything and then we said goodbye and hang up the call. And then my alarm went off and I woke up feeling calm.
I think it’s clear that she has passed away and came by to tell me. How very kind of her.
It’s been a while since I had premonitions, usually they leave a kind-of bad feeling but this was very serene feeling. I talked about it with a friend who said it sounds like a farewell. I feel grateful Mrs. M decided to tell me that she appreciated our relationship.
Today I met two of my closest friends first time since early March. We bought coffee and some cinnamon buns with us and went to a park to sit for a while. The wind was a bit chilly so after we chatted a while and drank our coffees we went to warm up to a bookshop but it was closing in ten minutes. We had still some time to browse books and stuff so it wasn’t all lost.
I’ve also bought summer flowers to plant in pots in out yard/garden and it’s nice. On Wednesday I did half of my day at the work place and the afternoon from home since I had a meeting to attend to via teams so hubby came to get me home and since I had lunch hour we drove via the City garden and bought pansies there. They have huge greenhouses because they grow all the flowers for the city’s summer flower beds in parks.
I haven’t been able to go for a walk in the evenings since I’ve been pretty tired and also my legs ache. I’ll need to go on weekend I think.
Youngest son is going back to school next Thursday and I think it’ll be okay. Middlest son’s graduation party is probably moved to the end of August but I’m thinking of having a small celebration for him in mid-June since I’m not sure the Army will let all of this spring’s graduates out on the same weekend.
I’ve been watching Young pope from Netflix and I find it quite funny. I’m not a great fan of Jude Law but Diane Keaton is very good. I’m about to finish the cardi soon.
ETA I almost forgot; I’ve been thinking about putting some of my fics out to the Archive but I’m still a bit hesitant. Two would be just one-shots and then a longer one about Avengers.. I’ll think about it again.
I can’t even remember when I last wrote here. I’ve been quite exhausted after the working-at-home during days and then in the evenings I’ve mostly tried to do something else than sit in front of the ’puter.
I’m going back to work (literally) tomorrow. I may have told you that there’s a refurnishing coming to the library and there needs to be some kind of clearing done. Our desks are getting removed and we’re getting new ones done and so on and before that can happen it needs to be cleared.
Hubby’s been on part-time layoff since Easter and he’s sent some applications to some companies and has now two interviews coming up next week. It’s pretty good and I hope he’ll succeed. He’s been complaining of his current job about all the time he’s been there.
I’ve almost finished the cardi I’ve been knitting, I’m on the second sleeve and then there’s the button strip left. The pattern was one of Drops Design and I’m lucky I’m not a beginner in knitting since it’s been weird, i.e. the sleeves should have been decreased from top to bottom which would have left the sleeve so narrow it’d not fit.
I’ve also been watching tv a lot and helped youngest son in his HE homeworks. Yesterday I uploaded ’Walk to Mordor’-apps into my phone in order to get my walks and upcoming biking km’s into it.
For piccies just go to my Instagram (on the left sidebar). There’s now also a video I took in the forest yesterday, I wanted to share the birds singing. Hope you like it 🙂
