Home at home

Hej hej Thursday!
About 2 weeks ago, I got this new piece of furniture from IKEA.
I love love love IKEA; there's always something new you want, something new to find and something new to get inspired by.
Back in November I got a shelving unit just like the one above, and I've been loving it so much, that I wanted to get another one for the other wall in my flat. It really wasn't expensive - actually the thing that cost the most was the wheels.

Well anyway, I got this new shelving unit 2 weeks ago, right before I was going to Sweden. So I assembled it the day before I was going on holiday, and just never got around to showing it to you.
Well, here it is! It's so lovely and practical, and I love the way I've "styled it" - I can't get enough of plants, and I really like that there's room for so many - and yet, it doesn't look crowded.

Oh, and the cactus is new, by the way. I've always wanted a cactus, and last Sunday I found this one for cheap money. Although it was a bitch getting it home on a bike and no room in the baskets, haha...

Have an absolutely lovely day

Home made lace plant pots

Hello rainy Wednesday!
Today I thought I'd show you how to make your own lace plant pots. It's super cute and adorable, it's very personal and it can also be used as a very nice gift for someone.

Yes, that's what you'll need. The lace I used was this fancy "lace tape" which I got for $2 at one of my favourite stores, Tigeren. Because of the sticky tape on the back of the lace, it was very easy to glue it onto the pots. But actually, lace tape is not a necessity for this; you can also use lace fabric and glue it on - carefully - with super glue. That also looks very cute, but it can be a little more difficult. So I'd suggest you try to find some lace tape or a lace string, and then glue it onto the pot.

If you weren't able to find lace tape, and you're doing this the ol' fashioned way, then I would suggest you try your way on a couple of old plant pots first. It's a bit difficult to get the lace glued on the pot in a straight line. So try and try again, because when you're finish, you'll love yourself for the time and effort you put into this.

If you do have lace tape, then this should be easy as pie. Just remember to take your time and make sure the line of the lace is somewhat straight.

And there you have it; a very personal and cute way of displaying your plants.
Oh and by the way; be careful not to spill water or dirt on the lace, since it'll take quite easily, and the lace is hard to take off the plant pots after you've glued it on.

Have a happy, happy day

Personal prints

Hello Tuesday! 
Back in February I did a post on how to make your own print on a cup.
I got so into it, that I've made many since - mainly as gifts for friends and family. It's a great gift and oh so personal, and you only need 3 things to do this; an oven, a cup and a porcelain pen!

I would suggest that you buy some cheap cups for your first attempts, since it can actually be a little more tricky than you'd think. These cups only cost me $1, so it didn't hurt my wallet if they didn't come out exactly as I wanted them. They're not perfect, but I actually do like them - so now they're currently the most used cups in my house.

Anyway, when you get the porcelain pen, make sure to read how to use it - and//or ask the store clerk, if you're not certain. Then just go home and get creative, let the print dry for 4-6 hours, place them in the oven for 90 minutes and then once they're done, let them cool off with the oven door open.
Make sure to wash them before use, and then you're ready to drink coffee or tea, or perhaps give them away as a lovely and personal gift

Sunday Summary

Hello rainy Sunday!
Well, this week has truly been very uneventful, I must say!
After school ended and the time for exams have started, seems like all I do is read up on my classes and not that much else.
Monday I spent most of the day in the car. Me, my mum and dad were going home after a couple of relaxing days in the Swedish country house. When we finally came to Roskilde and my parents dropped me off, I was so tired from the blazing heat that unpacking seemed almost impossible. Although I did manage in the end.

And now here's the tricky part:
This past week, most days have been looking a lot like each other. So much so, that I've been thrown out of my weekly routines, and sometimes I don't even know what day it is! But most days this past week, I've gotten up, eaten breakfast and then studied for many, many, many hours.
I hate this time of year; everything and everyone is so stressed out over the exams - and I only have two this year! I feel so bad for so many of my graduating friends; most of them have 8 exams... that's just crazy!

Anyway, I do remember Friday. I got up and ate breakfast, took a shower and put on my makeup. And then just as I was about to sit down and open the books, my mum called. She'd been at work, so she asked me if she could drop by for a couple of hours to say hello and wait for my dad, so she could hitch a ride with him.
I gladly invited her to come by - gave me an excuse to postpone the book reading and note taking. We had coffee and just chatted and had a nice time, and then at around 5 my dad dropped by and picked my mum up.
After they left, I decided to push the reading to Saturday, and just have Friday off. So I went out to my tiny bathroom, laid some old newspapers and started re-potting my plants. So messy, but the end result was really great

So Saturday, before I started reading, I decided to "share my wisdom" and wrote a post on plants, how to take care of them, and how to re-pot them - you should have a look if you're not certain how to take care of your plants.

And already Sunday again. It's raining today, so I've lit a bunch of candles and turned on all of my small and cozy lamps, and now I'm ready to get down to business - as always I have my trusted pack of ciggys and a fresh pot of coffee on the table... and a small tray of chocolate biscuits ;)
Let's do this!

Happy Sunday
- remember to dance in the rain today

How to re-pot your plants

Today I thought I'd show you - well, more like tell you - how to re-pot a plant.
On a personal note, I've actually never really been good at the whole "plant" thing, until I decided to make my flat a little "greener" a couple of years ago. When I lived at home, my mum had loads of plants, but I was never really interested. But fast forward 8 years and I'm totally diggin' the whole 'plants and flowers' thing!

If you don't have plants and don't really know that much about them, it's important to think about what kind of person you are - plant-wise. If you know you aren't gonna have time to water plants every day, then get a couple that only needs water once or twice a week. A lot of people recommend plant novices to buy orchids, as they are pretty and the taking-care-of-them part is almost minimal. I have a couple of orchids myself, but I actually prefer green plants.

When you're buying plants, it's important to look at the price as much as the plant. If the plant is cheap and looking a little worn down, it might not be the best idea. Try looking in the back of the display of plants to see, if you can't find one that looks a little more healthy.
Sometimes plants have a little note-sticker on the side, that tells you how to water them. However, I think it's a good idea to always go home and google it - just to be on the safe side.
As a general good idea, it's always important to place your plants where there's sunlight - but not in direct sunlight, as they might dry out. What I like to do, just to help the plant be healthy, is to spray water on the leaves once a week - that way you give your plant a little more life. You can just use a very cheap water spritzer.

A couple of times a year, you want to re-pot your plants. This is important, because the dirt in which the plant grows, is very nutritious for the plant, but after a couple of months - depending on how big the plant is - the plant will have "sucked up" most of the nutritions in the dirt. That's why you should re-pot your plants; not only are you helping your plants to have a better life, but your plants will actually look better after a couple of days with the new dirt in the pots.

You will need to buy a big bag of fresh dirt - you can get that many places, for example a plant store, or sometimes local grocery stores also have them.
The process isn't hard, but you should really do it outside, since it can make somewhat of a mess. It's important that your pots have a little hole in the bottom - a so called drain - where the excess of water can go. Oh and remember to have a little dish under the pot. If your pot don't have a drain, then go outside and gather some small rocks and put them in the bottom of the pot - that way, if you accidentally over-water the plant, the excess of water will go down to the bottom where the rocks are.

Here's how you re-pot a plant:
Take the plant out of the pot and shake it carefully, so that the excess of loose dirt falls off. Put the plant down on a piece of plastic, and empty the pot of old dirt. Wash the pot and then fill the bottom of the pot with a couple of inches of dirt, and then place the plant on top of the new dirt in the pot. Remember that when you fill the dirt in the pot, to add a little bit of water so that the dirt isn't too dry. Carefully fill out the sides around the plant, and remember to leave an inch or two between the dirt and the top of the pot - so that the water won't overflow over the edges when you water your plant.
And that's how you do it! Easy as pie, and your plants will have a better life and as a thanks to you, they'll look stunning after you've re-potted them.

Happy Saturday

Re-potted plants

Yesterday I re-potted my plants, and this is how the end-result looks.
In just about two minutes I'll show you how to do this yourself!

Sunday Summary

For the last few weeks I've been wondering out loud, why time flies when you're having fun. This week is no exception, so let's get right to it and summarize it, shall we?
Monday was my last day of school. It was only two hours, but they felt a little like two hours wasted. We didn't do much other than read in our Psychology book and jolt down a few key words. However, I did have fun in the sun with Julie doing it, so that's at least something. When classes ended, I drove on home and enjoyed the rest of the day with coffee and episodes of Friends - and in general just enjoyed the fact, that I only have 2 exams this Summer!

Tuesday I didn't do much other than the usual when I'm bored; I cleaned a bit, drove to town and did a little shopping, and not much else. But I did do a post on my Mother's Day gift for my mum this year. I couldn't be with her last Sunday, so I had to give her the gift on Friday. She was actually really happy about it, and she's been using the coffee cups every day now. So that's good!

Wednesday Maria came by for morning coffee - the last real cuppa coffee before school this year. Unfortunately she only had about 20 minutes, but luckily she came back later in the day, and stayed for a few hours. Lovely!
I also did a post on this über cool and kitsch picture I found down by the flat dumpsters - if you didn't catch it, you can find the post here.

Thursday I had my last dentist appointment - as some of you might remember, I've been going through a bitch of a root canal for the last month and a half - but luckily and finally the dentist managed to close it up, so now it's over - for good... well, not for good; I still have to come back in a year and get a crown. But we'll get to that when we'll get to that!
Then after a bit of shopping and window shopping in town, I drove back on home and did a quick post on the dining table in my flat, and then I assembled a new piece of IKEA furniture. I'm pretty happy about it, but it was too hot to really get into the whole thing of re-arranging the furniture - again! - so I put it in a nice way that'll work for now, and then next week I'll really get into it... and show you, of course.

Friday was busy busy busy. I got up at 6, took a shower and put on my makeup, and then at around 7 my mum came by. She'd hitched a ride from my dad who were going to work in the city, and then drove by my place so my mum could visit. You see, later in the day we were all going to Sweden, so I had suggested to my mum that she just came by my place in the morning, so she didn't have to take the long train ride from Falster to Roskilde later. We had a nice time eating breakfast and chatting, and then my grandmum stopped by for a little while.
Then a little later, we walked to town and did some shopping, before we stopped at "our" street café and had an apple cider. Then we took the train to Copenhagen and then walked a little while. We found a great spot in the sun in Glyptotekets Have (a nice garden with pretty flowers) and just enjoyed the warmth and the sun for a few hours. Then we met up with my dad, and then finally we drove on to Sweden. We were at the house at around 9 in the evening, and by then we were all so tired that, after unpacking the car, we just went to bed.

Saturday was soooo warm and sunny, so I just lay in the garden most of the day, soaking up the sun. Actually I've got a hint of a tan now, which really never happens to me. So that's great! Anyway, the most important thing yesterday, was something I've been looking forward to for so long - Eurovision! I've never really been a Eurovision girl until last year, when I started following Melodifestivalen in Sweden - and got hooked. So of course I rooted for Sweden yesterday. Actually, I never even heard the Danish song until last Tuesday, when the first semi final was held. But anyway, Sweden didn't win - unfortunately - but Denmark did. And the Danish song is pretty great, so it's not a total loss. Although I'd like to have seen Robin Stjernberg take home the prize.
But anyway, it was a lovely evening and I ended up going to bed at 5 in the morning...

... so today I slept until 1... crazy! Now I'm just having a cuppa coffee and enjoying the rainy day.
You all have a lovely Sunday now!

Table for two

Hello Thursday! Table for two, anyone?
Yesterday I told you a little about the lovely picture I found accidentally down by the flat dumpsters - you can actually spot it in the background to the left in the pictures above - or can see "the full version" here.

Anyway, yesterday I told you a little about my weekend, and that I spend most of it cleaning up the flat. After a couple of hours - or four - of that, I decided to do a little re-arranging of some of my furniture.
I have a studio flat, so it's all about being creative with the space I've got. And I've had my furniture the same way for about a year now - which actually isn't like me at all. When I was a wee little teen, I used to re-arrange and re-decorate my room almost every week... drove my parents crazy.
Well anyway, for a long time now, I've been using this table just for dining with friends - not for myself; I'm a bit ashamed of admitting this, but most nights I eat my dinner either standing up in the kitchen or sitting on the couch... hmm, must change that!

And actually I'm planning on it, because now that I've placed my dining table here, I have a great view from my windows - and to the TV, haha. When I'm not eating, I place my computer on the table and use it as a work desk - actually, I'm sitting at the table, blogging, right now!

But enough blogging for today; now I will assemble a new piece of furniture from IKEA - but I'm afraid you won't get to see it until next week, cause tomorrow I'm going to Sweden to stay at the country house for a few days.
See you on the other side of the boarder!

Lucky find

This weekend I did a little Spring cleaning - not as in washing the windows, dusting the shelves and so on... I do that pretty often actually. But no, it was that time of year to clean out all of the junk I have stacked away in the corners, on the shelves and in the kitchen. I managed okay, and I actually also did a little re-arranging of some of my furniture - which I'll show you tomorrow.

Anyway, I hate to say it, but I actually had more junk than I thought, so I had to make a fair few trips down to the dumpsters. But when a door closes, a window opens, as they say. I'd like to change that to: Throw something out, gain something new!

As I threw out bag of crap number 3, I had to go around the dumpsters, and oooooooooh! Lookie look what I found! This picture is the coolest, most kitsch, most adorable thing I've ever seen - and it was just sitting there, ready to be picked up and thrown out. But no sir! I took it, before anybody else could snatch it up, and now... well, now it's mine!
I'll treasure it forever

Sunday was Mother's Day...

... but I didn't see my mum on account of her and my dad were by the countryside in the Swedish house.
Anyway, I always buy some little thing and a bouquet for Mother's Day, and I always feel like I haven't done anything special. So this year I decided to do a little something silly, so I painted two small pictures and draw some funny things on some coffee cups. I've also bought some expensive chocolates, just to be on the safe side (haha). Anyway, I know it might be a little juvenile, but I actually think it's funnier than just a box of chocolates and some flowers.
We're going to Sweden over the coming weekend, so I'll have the chance to give her the present there...

... Now we'll just have to wait and see if she "accidentally" drops and breaks the two cups, haha!

Sunday Summary

Over the last couple of weeks, I've been wondering about how time works and how quickly it flies away. Not to get all philosophical or anything, but over the last couple of Sundays, when I sit down with my cuppa coffee on the table and a lit cigarette in the ashtray, I always feel a bit... well actually, I don't quite know how I feel. But every Sunday it occurs to me how fast time goes by...
... like this week! This week has just passed in a blur. It's not even that I've had an "adventure" every day; just normal, everyday stuff. Like cups of coffee, mentholated cigarettes, friends, school, homework, late-night dinners and so on. But then again; they all make a life. And I'm pretty happy about mine at the moment! :)

Monday we had the day off from school. As a rule at my school, you can only completely graduate if and when you write a final paper in your last year. Next year, around this time, I'll be bitching and moaning, cause by then it's my time to write that paper. But not this year - phew! But still, a lot of people from my Psychology class are graduating this year, so they're in the process of writing that paper. So our teacher decided to give all of us Monday off, so I stayed home and had a nice and relaxing day. I enjoyed the sexy men of Bon Temps (aka True Blood) and did a little cleaning too.

Tuesday was pretty much the same as Monday. Not a whole lot happened; I decided to spend the day doing my laundry - and there was a lot! I'm actually not at all bad a doing the laundry, but this time it just kinda snuck up on me. Luckily I had my headphones with a "Shopaholic" novel in my ears, so it wasn't bad at all.
Oh and by the way, Tuesday was also the day I posted a post about how you make your own Black Pepper Ginger Tea - it's absolutely delicious; if you haven't checked out the post yet, you really should!

Wednesday I got up and got ready for Maria, who, as always, came by for morning coffee. We had a half an hour extra, since she'd managed to leave home early. It's always so lovely to know that Maria's coming by on Wednesdays, although next year, that might not be the case. As far as we can figure, her school schedule and mine don't exactly match. But well, we'll see...
Well, after Maria left I sat down and read some German homework, because 2 hours later - at 1 - I had a German class meeting at school. It was not obligatory, and actually I almost didn't go, but then kinda last minute I decided that it was better than just hanging around at my flat, not doing much. So I went, and at school I met up with my friend Julie, and then class started. We were only 4 who attended, but it was still cool. I'm not so nervous about the exams - yet! I do feel I have quite a good grasp of reality when it comes to the final grade. I don't expect an A+ - or even an A or a B, but I don't expect to fail either. But let's get to that when we get to that!
Anyway, after German class, I said goodbye to Julie and met up with Maria and Preben, who also were at the school. We smoked a few ciggys, talked about everything and nothing, and then it was time for all of us to get on with the day; both Maria and Preben had to pick up each of their daughters at daycare, and so I went out to do a little window shopping.

Thursday, my sister and her boyfriend brought their daughter to my grandmum. Selma, my niece, was supposed to sleep over at my grandmum's, and so I came by to say hello and see my sister, her boyfriend and Selma. Now it's no secret that I'm not great with kids, nor do I actually like them. But finally Selma's gotten to that age where she's so funny, so it's an absolute joy to just sit on the floor and watch children's TV with her, or going down to the lake to feed the ducks - which we did after my sister and her boyfriend left. It was so funny to see that little kid feeding the ducks, and wanting to be carried when the ducks came to close. And as a bonus, I found out that I might be more maternal that I originally thought ;)

Friday morning was a bitch, but I managed to get to school in time for class. It's very obvious that we're getting very close to the end of this year - we didn't do much in class other than just talk a bit about exam anxiety and so on. I was pretty bored, but the thought of this school year ending tomorrow makes it manageable to tolerate, haha. And also, to pass the time in class, I took out my iPad Mini and browsed the shops a bit - and ended up buying a lovely dress... woops!
After school I stopped by a shop to buy some nice yellow roses, and then I went down to Roskilde Library, where I met up with the guys from the old gang - and Maria. They have a math class together, so they'd met up to get a report done - or something like that, I'm actually not quite sure ;) Anyway, I stayed for a ciggy and a chat, and then I drove on home.
In the evening I had a loooong phone conversation with Kasper. You won't believe this, but yesterday he actually took a plane to Peru, where he's gonna work as a volunteer in the Peruvian jungle - for two months! That's just so crazy, but also just so great for him! I can't believe he ain't gonna pick up the phone, or log on to Skype or even drop by for a cuppa tea for the next 8 weeks. But I'm very happy for him - and I also really envy him, haha ;)

Saturday was pretty quiet. I did some re-arranging of some of my furniture, watched a movie and cleaned my kitchen from top to bottom. Luckily I love cleaning; it's kinda like my hobby (haha). And I did have the "Shopaholic Ties The Knot" audiobook on in the background, so I actually enjoyed myself rather much. Oh and by the way, you should check out the last couple of posts before this one; yesterday I brought you 3 discount code posts; one for Asos, one for Ellos and the monthly one I do with discount codes for H&M.

And then finally today. I don't actually have any plans for today other than homework for tomorrow. I think I'll go for a run in a minute or two, and then just see where the day takes me.

You all have a lovely Sunday, and enjoy the sun (if you have it)

H&M discount codes for May

We're already 11 days into May and there's still half a month to go. The sensible thing to do would be to save up for something nice...
... but HOW can you not spend money when there are so many great discount codes on the blog today? Just a few minutes ago I posted new posts on an Asos discount code and, for the Danes, an Ellos discount code.

The last codes I have for you this lovely Saturday, is some new - and some old - discount codes for H&M.
You might recognize some of them from last month, but don't threat - they still work!

 Let's start with the one that gives you 5 off your purchase. I've been told it should work in all countries, with the note that the fiver is dollars, pounds, euros or what have you. As always, this code is long standing, and it has worked for me for about 2 or 3 years now.
The code is: 1304

The second code gives you a 10% discount when you spend over £6 - make sure to check with your currency - and it works on the entire range.
The code is: 0406

The third - and new - code gives you 25% off the highest prices item in your basked. The code ends 21st of May, 2013.
The code is: 0483 

The fourth code also gives you a 25% discount on the highest priced item in your basket, and it'll work until August 1st, 2013.
The code is: 0241

The last "code" - or rather tip - I have for you today gives you 25% off one item of your choice, but this code unfortunately only works once, and that is when you sign up for H&M's Newsletter.
However, here's a little tip for you; if you're really short of cash and just can't wait to purchase that absolutely "one-thing-that-would-make-me-happy" item, you can cheat a bit here. Just create a new email account on another email site - like Yahoo, Gmail and what have you - and voilà, you get your discount.

Ellos rabatkoder

I dag er det rabat dag her på bloggen - for et øjeblik siden gav jeg jer en kode til Asos, og nu har jeg så et par gode koder til Ellos.

Det er helt som det plejer at være med det her Ellos rabatkoder; altså som altid er det først-til-mølle princippet, så skynd jer at snuppe koden inden en anden gør det!

Dagens rabatkode til Ellos giver 40% rabat på din dyreste vare, og dernæst 25% på resten af bestillingen
Koden er: 271101


Asos discount code for May

There's nothing like a good discount code, and I love bringing them to you. But the kind of codes I like the most, is the ones for Asos and H&M - I mean, there's always something you didn't know you needed, but now can't live without on those sites!
It's not very often that Asos has discount codes, so it's all about striking when the iron is hot! So you go on the Asos site and shop right now, haha!

Just use this code, which gives you a 20% discount on your purchase, if you spend i minimum of £40
The code is:

Home made black pepper ginger tea

It's getting so hot here in Denmark. It's like we've had this cruel Winter, about 4 days of Spring and now we're in the middle of Summer! It's so hot these days, that going for a run in the late afternoon leaves you covered in sweat when you get home. But still, it's manageable - for now at least!
Anyway, even if it's hot out, there's nothing like the feeling when the sun has gone down and it gets a little chilly. No matter what time of year it is, I can't go to bed without a cuppa tea, but I refuse to buy anything else but the organic brands like Yogi and Celestial. My favorite tea of all time is Yogi's "Ginger", and then it occurred to me - why not make it myself? So that's what I did!

Today I'll show you how to make your own Black Pepper Ginger Tea - there's nothing like it; when you've made it yourself and actually know what's in it.

Here's what you'll need:
Some whole black pepper corns
One or two big ginger roots
And some loose tea-filters - you can get them in any grocery store, they're very cheap and you get lots!

And here's what you do:
Grade the ginger roots and place them on a big plate or what have you.
Let the dry off for a day or two, so that they are completely dry and crisp. It's important that when you place the graded ginger roots to dry, they don't "clump together"...

... After a day or two, the graded ginger roots should look like this. But make sure that they are completely dry before you go on and make the actual tea.

When you're sure the roots are dry, then you can start the fun process of making the actual tea.
Now, take the filters and fill them with the dry ginger and 4 or 6 whole black peppers corns - depending on how strong you want the tea. Remember that ginger already has a kind of peppery taste, so you might not want to put so much pepper in the tea bags.
When the tea bags are filled, cut off the long end, tie a string around it and make some cute tea-tags.

And now you're ready to drink a delicious cuppa home made Black Pepper Ginger Tea
- enjoy!

Sunday Summary

Already Sunday? Again? Weren't we just here a mere couple of hours ago? Well, of course we weren't, but lately, the weeks just seem to go by in a blur. Not that that's a bad thing - if anything, it's the best. Although it makes it harder to write the Sunday Summaries, since I find it hard to remember every day this past week.
However, I do remember a little of Monday. Schoolwise, this past week hasn't been so great. I've been cutting classes all week, which I really do feel bad about. Especially since we're so close to exams. But then again, there's not much to do about it now, so it is what it is. But it is stupid!
Anyway, this week started out kinda slow and uneventful, but by the end it got way better! 

Tuesday I had a dentist appointment, and after that I stayed home and watched back-to-back episodes of Desperate Housewives. Then I pulled my own version of Bree Van de Kamp and made my own home made marinated feta cheese. It is the easiest thing in the world - and let me tell you, it's delicious!

Wednesday was busy busy busy. I had morning coffee with Maria, and then after endless cups of coffee we drove off to the school. I had an appointment with the student office to arrange my school schedule for next years classes. Then after 40 minutes of that, Maria and I took a stroll around town, after which we decided to grab a bite to eat and sat down by a street café. After we were done eating, we went back to the school and smoked a couple of ciggys. We actually had an open course about exam anxiety to go to, but before that I had to run by my dentist real quick. That place must run their office based solely on me paying their bills by now! Well, anyway... it only took about 5 minutes, and then I went back to school and met up with Maria and my friend Nadia, who were also attending the course.
It was actually Maria who signed me up for the meeting; I don't really have that much exam anxiety - don't get me wrong, I do get nervous, but not to the point of fainting or anything. But when Maria told me about the course, I'd asked her if she could sign me up. I figured it might be a good idea, regardless of how I feel about exams. It took about 2 hours and I didn't really get much out of it, but luckily Maria, Nadia and the others did. And I did get a lot of tricks if it gets too bad before an exam.
Then after we were done, Maria and I went outside where we met up with some of the guys from the old gang. We shared a few laughs and cigarettes, and then when it was time for the guys and Maria to go to math, I went home - and enjoyed what was left of the day.

Friday was the absolute best day this week. I had a party for the old gang, and for once, everybody came! Maria came by first, and we stayed in smoking cigarettes and colouring her hair, and then before long Kasper came by. We went outside in the sun, and then all at once, the rest of the gang arrived.
We had such fun; playing pétanque, smoking cigarettes, eating Thai food and drinking beer (as always water for me). Then when the guys started to freeze, we went upstairs to my flat where the party continued.
It was such a fun night, but boy was I tired the next day...

... So Saturday I slept to 11, and then hung out for a couple of hours; smoking endless ciggys and drinking coffee. When I finally got over my "hangover" at around 3, I just got so energized that I started to do some of the Spring cleaning and rearranging some furniture - not much, just some small things. However, it ook 6 hours, and when I was done it was around 11 PM.

And here we are again; Sunday. I came to bed late last night, but I actually got up at around 8 today. I've just done some grocery shopping, and now I'm enjoying a strong cuppa coffee and a sexy episode of True Blood.

Happy Sunday y'all
