Youngest son’s nose is fixed. In the morning we went to the hospital and after waiting in the kids room for two hours he got in and the deed was done in 45 minutes.
The cartilage next to the bone was a bit crushed by the blow and the surgeon lifted it. Now he has a tampon inside his nose and an outside support, hopefully it’ll be okay now.
Hubby came to pick us up and they drove via my workplace so I managed to do some hours.
On this morning our city mayor said in the Covid19 newsflash that all libraries, sports places, secondary schools and adult hobby places will close in near future which means my workplace will probably close too next week.
After I came home we watched Galaxy Quest with youngest one. I really love that movie.
Youngest son’s nose will be operated at the Uni Hospital tomorrow morning. It’ll be done in local anesthesia and shouldn’t take long. Afterwards I’ll put him in a taxi (since I must get to work) and hubby is on the other end to welcome him home. The taxi ride is mostly paid by the government which is why we pay taxes.
We had a bit of snow on Friday but it melted next night as we had a rainstorm. Sirius was a bit astonished of the white stuff on the ground and I remembered that Converse really isn’t a real winter shoe.
Yesterday I did a walk in the forest but it was so wet that at one point my sneakers were wet inside. Luckily I had woollen socks so it didn’t matter because wool keeps warmth even when wet.
Here is a song I used to listen to a lot and I still love it. I hope you do too. (Ben Folds is amazing.)
On Saturday youngest son went to a trampoline park with his friends for the the first time this year bc of the plague going around. Just after two hours he called hubby to get him home. One of his friends had accidentally hit him on the nose and he had a nosebleed and during the evening his nose swelled a bit. When he got up on Sunday his nose was aching and swollen so we took him to see a doctor who then sent us to the University Hospital’s ER.
Luckily there was just one old lady and us so it didn’t take very long for us to see another doctor. She examined youngest son’s face very carefully and said that the nose is so swollen we’ll have to come later when it’s gone down a bit and they can see if it needs operation. She also said the nose looked a bit crooked to the right and so we are going there on Friday morning.
Now the swelling has gone down quite well and it doesn’t look broken imo. Of course now youngest son has been on and off in school because first his nose was pretty achy and now he’s been couching the fluids up so that his voice is gone. Well.. just tomorrow left anymore.
On Sunday we got home just in time to say our goodbyes to middlest son who was having his one week free. Next time he’s coming home on Boxing day when he’s been ’in’ for six weeks service and then he’ll go back next year! Their flying lessons begin in January too. I find it funny as our last name means Great tit so the little bird gets his flying lessons finally 🙂
At my work we’ve had a conservator-restorer cleaning all the statues we have. Most of them are in the City museum’s collections but some are of the National Gallery’s collection and one of these had a bullet embedded into it. It made us very curious since the house has only been on place since 1927 but the statue is from the 1900. It’d be interesting to find out where the bullet is from. (Our statue is a copy of the one in the Wikipedia article, it’s called The Shipwrecked.)
Tomorrow we’ll hear if the City decides to close places as the Covid19 is increasing in the Metropolitan area again. Last spring I thought the quarantine closing would have been harder in November and look! here we are…
November is already rollin’ ahead and I’ve been lazy with updating.
Eldest son turned 22 and I wonder where the time went since I’m about that age myself. Well, it took some time until he arrived, we even went to a clinic bc my hormones didn’t have a clue what they were supposed to do so I was pretty happy to finally have my baby boy in my arms. He continues to be a joy as does his brothers.
Today we Finns have Father’s day but since both mine and hubby’s fathers have long gone we only celebrate by having our own family on dinner. We are also celebrating eldest son today.
During this week I’ve been to movies to watch Tove-movie which was very good. Usually the films about Finnish artists show the person on a pedestal (i.e. Helene) like they weren’t a living and breathing person at all but lived from the spirit of art. Tove didn’t suffer of this and it made the film much better. The movie concentrates on Tove Jansson’s life between the WWII and 1960’s when she became a ’household name’ with the Moomins. It also tells the story of her finding her sexuality and in the very end we see a real clip of her (the actual Tove) dancing on the island of Haru where she and Tuulikki had their summer place.
I read in a magazine that Tove hated doing beds in the morning so in the summer cottage they always slept in sleeping bags in a tent in order not to need to make the beds. I find it a very nice thought. (Of course I seldom make beds myself..)
What else? Work went by as it does, everyday chores. Yesterday I went to another National park nearby us called Sipoonkorpi. It only takes about ten minutes to drive there so hubby drove me there and then when I had enough mushrooms and felt refreshed enough I called him and he came to pick me up again.
Then at home I baked a mud cake for today and a mushroom pie of the yellowfeet I had picked. It was so good.
I’ve also listened to and read some novels so that I already had to change my reading goal in Goodreads from 80 to 90 books this year. Lastly I’ve listened to Robert Galbraith’s (aka J.K.Rowling) Lethal white and Troubled blood of which the latter was very good. On the first one I knew the culprit pretty early on. I also read Quantum thief-scifi novel by Hannu Rajaniemi, a Finnish guy writing in English and I must say the story was good but I’d have needed a dictionary for all the new words he had invented which kind of took the joy of reading his story away. I also read one very light Finnish chick-lit and I don’t quite know why I read them since I always feel like I had been robbed after finishing them.
I’ve also been thinking about changing this blog’s theme. My instagram pics don’t show on the sidebar and it doesn’t help to refresh or redo the link, I don’t know why that is.
Now I’m going to have some coffee and mudcake. I hope you’ve had a nice Sunday too.
