Rough day… 18. September 2017

 Cranberry kohuke

 Two bacon and cheese pastries straight out of the oven

 Miso soup @ Tokumaru

 Chicken katsu curry. I felt upset and tired after my doctor’s appointment, so I decided to treat myself to something nice. This truly hit the spot.

 Salad with lamb’s lettuce

 Potato and minced meat stew with sour cream

I went and opened the café before my doctor’s appointment in the morning. Then I had the appointment which was… difficult. So, after I had run a few more errands, I treated myself to some nice food and then went home to sleep. The evening was quite a lot more tolerable after my long nap. Sometimes nice food and sleeping the day away are just the answers you need.

Getting things off my chest… 14. September 2017

 Salmon and egg bagel and salted cucumber from a convenience store and a cup of hot lovely coffee.

 A couple of tangerine candies. I got these from Candy Japan and I was absolutely thrilled about how cute they were and how good they tasted.

 Beetroot latte.

 Clear vegetable soup with minced meat and a dollop of sour cream + some coriander bread.

 A couple of apples.

 Dinner with boyfriend. I had another beetroot latte and we shared some sweet potato fries.

 A pancake with honey.

 A chocolate pastry.

I have been unhappy with my work lately. I mean, I still enjoy the actual work part, I am just tired of running against walls and minor problems not getting solved for months and then us, the people behind the counter, getting blamed for things going wrong even though we have no control over any of it. It has been frustrating and stressful. I got the owners involved now, so hopefully all parties will get their proper say and changes will be made. If not, then… I will be very very sad.

Apparently, there was a huge magnetic storm… 8. September 2017

 Boon Kriek Mariage Parfait 2014. Pretty nice tasting lambic beer.

It was just one of THESE days where everything goes wrong and is terrible. There was nausea, almost throwing up at work, my sense of smell going wonky so EVERYTHING smelled strong and awful… and on top of that the drinks fridge at work broke when I closed the door on it after getting a pack of almond milk from there and I almost got hit by a huge ass absinthe bottle that fell down from the top of it :s I’m not quite certain what exactly or how it happened, all I know is that things broke and fell and I am quite happy that I didn’t get hurt.

I was so utterly exhausted by the end of my work day. I started making stupid mistakes with things already as well. I was so glad when my replacement shift arrived and I could go home… 8D

Circle K… 3. May 2017

 Duck salad with noodles from Circle K

 Pasta carbonara @ Koloniaal

 Jäämari lime-coconut popsicle

 Scrambled eggs with leftovers from yesterday + some salad

I guess we officially have a convenience store in Estonia now. Most of the Circle K shops used to be Statoil gas stations before and Circle K bought them, so now we have Circle K shops that don’t have a gas station attached to them as well. I suppose the Statoil stores had been turning into convenience stores already over the years, but people usually still thought of them as gas stations rather than convenience stores.
