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

I’d say it was actually a quite productive day. For my standards at least 😀

I had a difficult day at work, because my neck and my right shoulder were hurting a lot when I moved. It was a pain operating the coffee machine and I kept dropping things when my hand went slack from sudden pain. Thankfully it wasn’t a very busy day, so I could sit and rest on one of the couches in the café quite a bit.

My boyfriend took part of Oro 4×4 Offroad 2017. I tagged along to hang out with Loviise near the track and to take photos of the event… however, I did bring my camera, but forgot the camera battery at home D: Really lame, because this event would have made some really nice muddy shots. Anyway, here are some crappy phone photos instead:

Speaking of my aching neck and shoulder, they were hurting quite a bit still in the morning, but the pain was almost gone by the evening. So yay, it wasn’t a sign of an upcoming illness 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.
