25. May

 Chocolate croissant

 Hamburgers and sweet potato fries @ Bastard Burgers

 Nomnom. Sadly, I have no idea what most of this was as I didn’t order it myself and I couldn’t read the menu anyway. It was delicious though!

 Baked tomatoes, chicken and other meats on a stick

 Rice with butter and some sauces. The salad was sadly very bitter 😦

 Cake and ice cream

*

We took Loviise to her horse clinic near Uppsala and then proceeded to just hang out in Uppsala with my boyfriend. We went to Ikea where we bought a bunch of unnecessary stuff with a few useful exceptions xD Then we just walked around the city centre for a long while and visited Museum Gustavianum where they had a lot of ancient Egyptian artefacts on display. I had never seen a real mummy before… it was so cool and it also freaked me out a lot. I mean, one day you die, you get buried and then thousands of years later you end up as a museum exhibit. How fucked up is that? I felt weird taking a photo, because it used to be a real person once, so I didn’t.

Anyway, I had a great time walking around and in the late evening we had dinner at a Persian restaurant together with Loviise and her clinic people. It’s odd to me that horse training sessions are called clinics xD

17. May

 Cocoa pudding

 Cocoa flavoured candies

 Pasta with chicken and mushrooms

 Pancake with mushrooms and bacon

 Movie night foods: rice with beef, fruit roll-ups, cumin crackers, veggies with crappy hummus dip, some white wine etc.

I was at work during the day and in the evening, we had a movie night with Miss K and Mall. We watched “Deadpool” which was still awesome as ever 😀

18. May

 Coffee, sandwiches with sõir, ham and cucumber

 Chocolate ice cream

 Mulk’s porridge (mashed potatoes with pearl barley) with some salad

 Fritz-limo apple-cherry-elderberry lemonade

I spent most of the day sleeping 😀 I tend to sleep most of my days off away 😀 In the late afternoon, I took out the recyclable trash to the collection site, went and picked up a gift candy box from a sweets store, came back home, made dinner and did all the dishes. I’d say it was actually a quite productive day. For my standards at least 😀

Adulting is so hard… 7-8. May 2017

7. May

 Smoothie

 Coffee and oatmeal porridge with honey

 A quark pastry and a sausage pastry and a cup of coffee @ Narva Kohvik. Didn’t get yelled at there this time xD

Beef chili with rice and sour cream

 Ice cream from McDonalds

I hung out with Eva for some time during the day. We walked a lot and had coffee in Narva Kohvik. Was chill and nice.

In the evening, I suggested to my boyfriend that we should get out the bikes for the first time and go to Rocca al Mare for some soft serve ice cream. They had a store there that served decent soft ice cream. The bike ride was great, but when we got to our destination, it turned out that the shop had been replaced by a butcher stall D: I was so disappointed! Therefore, we went and got ice cream from McDonalds. It wasn’t as good, but since it had been our mission to get ice cream, it would have been sad to return home without having any.

Also, speaking of bikes… the rats had eaten my bike handles D: Look!:

8. May

 Fresh Freddie coconut, spelt, mint and dark chocolate bar which was delicious + coffee

 Four grain porridge with butter and honey

 Jäämari peanut-butter cherry popsicle. It’s a curse having them for sale at the place I work, because I want to buy and eat them all xD

 A pancake with banana and honey

 Mulk’s porridge (mashed potatoes with pearl barley), grilled chicken leg and orange lemonade

I was dead tired after work, so I passed out on the couch almost instantly after I got home xD Boyfriend was a saviour and brought home dinner.

Work, clinic and friends… 4-5. May 2017

4. May

 Coffee and a kohuke. The kohuke wasn’t very good and I didn’t eat the Cherry-Spice Ampstükk, because it tasted horrible. Disappointing breakfast.

 Breakfast take 2: porridge with honey and butter

 A smoked tofu burrito @ Koloniaal

 Pelmeni in spicy chili sauce with salad

5. May

 Coffee ♥

 Laura Moon’s chili with rice and sour cream

 Cheesecake from Killuke Kooki

I had a doctor’s appointment in the morning which was super stressful. At first my doctor was late and then it was just emotionally quite hard. I was emotionally exhausted afterwards, so I went and blasted a gift card I had in Blender for and energy boost in the form of a delicious smoothie and some brownies.

Later in the evening I had Eva and Marit over for some chili and drinks. Eventually, Indrek came home as well and brought cake. I totally overate :p

Fish harbour, water park and a day with shopping and games… 29-30. April 2017

29. April

 A banana and a cup of coffee

 Oatmeal porridge with chia seeds

 Omelette with buckwheat

 More coffee and a cinnamon roll

 Chicken spring rolls @ Spice

 Beef and spinach curry with rice and some salad

 Cheesecake with blueberries from Killuke Kooki that was delicious

We had planned to go hiking with Ly, Loviise and the rest of the bunch, but the weather was dreadful, so we decided to go to a water park instead. Before that, however, we took a quick detour to a fishing harbour to check out an event held there. Sadly, it was super windy, so we only took a quick look around and then escaped to the water park.

 Windy and cold

The water park was fun, I even dared to slide down some rides. At first I went together with my boyfriend, using floaty boats meant for two people, but later I went down alone. Unfortunately, on one such occasion, my floaty thingy flipped over at the end of the ride and I hit my head hard against the tunnel. After that it was enough water park for me, so I just sat in a bubble bath for the rest of the stay.

After the water park, we had dinner together and then ate cake at our place to celebrate my own, Loviise’s and Ly’s birthdays that all were in April.

30. April

 A banana and oatmeal porridge with butter and honey

 A pear

 Ham and mushroom pizza

 Rice with tuna, cabbage and eggs + some salad

 Realist ginger-peppermint lemonade

 Japanese snacks: Big Katsu, squid snacks and Yakiniku-san. None of them were particularly good.

I went shopping in a second-hand store with Loviise and got myself a new pair of trousers, a scarf and a blouse. In the evening, I had a raid night with the guild, which was great fun as always. Lately, I’ve hardly had any time to play at all due to my suddenly busy schedule.

Good job, have some lemonade… 25-26. April 2017

25. April

 Coffee and carrots

 Pesto pasta and salad. I was not happy with the “salad” so I took it back to the kitchen and demanded some cucumber and tomato in it. Also, is it strange to want to eat a salad with pasta? The chef sure thought so, because apparently the pasta was already green :p

 Spicy barley and potato stew with sour cream + a sausage sandwich

 Coffee and Karl Fazer Rio De Janeiro Mint & Choco Drops infused in milk chocolate

26. April
