A little bit of this and a little bit of that...
So I went to work this morning at about 7.30, arrived and was send straight home. I am sick and pale and have a sexy deep voice right now:) I would sing to myself if it weren´t so darn painful. I am actually quite desperate and things are getting worse...I am so sorry for myself that it is difficult to breathe. I found an old bottle of coughing medicine and took a huge sip out of it. It must have been in my cupboard for quite a while. Difficult times-desperate measures. I hope I am good enough tomorrow to storm the closest drugstore and use my sexy voice to purchase really strong pain killers. But my mom came around and brought me loads of food...ice-cream and stuff, so at least I don´t have to be hungry while being sick. Thank you for that!
I wasn´t very busy at blogging in the last couple of days. That is because I painted my new apartment during the daytime and worked in the evening. My bedroom is now in two colours, antique-red and safire-pink. Very girlish I know, but it also seems very warm and bright and I love that. It seems like the sun will never set in that room. The other room is white, I also have a conventional side and like the cleanliness white walls express.
Gerhart Schröder had his last day of being Bundeskanzler in Germany today. God bless, he didn´t do much good, but he did not make anything worse either. 7 years in the office surpassed by a woman that lived in the former DDR. Don´t know where Germany is heading but I hope "Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit" will be part of the new coalition.
As I am typing this, and by the way feeling really bad and having a sore throat, a new baby girl is about to be added to our family. The oldest son in my Icelandic family is expecting his second child and it is the first girl in the extended family. I believe there are 6 boys and one girl. Thank God, I can purchase finally some pink stuff for Christmas. I´d like to go and see them as soon as the little one arrives, but I don´t wanna welcome her into this world by giving her the cough from hell. I can´t even call, ´cause I doubt they would recognize my voice over the phone
and feel somebody might be stalking them. So I think the best bed is a message over the phone. I think the soon-to-be mother might be in more pain right now than I am so I´ll stop whining.
The picture above is that of a cactus. Some time ago my mom gave it to me, ´cause it stopped blooming at her place. Under my care and diverse treatment (once I cooked spinach for it!) it has started to bloom again and now it is brightening up the dark and grey winter scenery!
I hope the rest of you had a good weekend and now I have enough time to go and visit blogs...
