Gifted, again


I've said it before, I say it again: my thirtieth birthday is the birthday that just keeps on giving... Today I got a little package in the mail and in it was a belated birthday gift from my friend-trio H, E & M. And this is not just any gift, it is a gift both to me and to the environment, maybe the best kind of gift! Not only is this a pretty tree-necklace but I'm going to feel good about having it - and my friends - every time I wear it. Good stuff. You buy one too! Edblad necklace. 

Manual Labour


Two more days and then I have my summer vacation: 3 weeks and 2 days off!

Summer weekend

This weekend in photos:

 Friday 

Wine and healthy snacks on a balcony.
With this lovely lady.

And this lovely dog.
Saturday
I got a hair-cut. Nothing big, just maintenance. And it was sunny.

We ate red beets with chèvre.
Sunday

my A and our friend O went free-diving
and I went fishing!

No fish on this hook...
Luckily O caught enough for us all.

flea-market saturday

Before hurting my back on Saturday I made the short walk to town and the flea-market that takes place on Nytorget every weekend during the summer months. It's usually mostly older ladies selling porcelain and jewellery, but this time I found a stand with three girls my age (or ten years younger, who knows) selling clothes and accessories. Fun! I actually bought a very nice 60's dress that I haven't really tried on yet due to my little mishap in the garden. Anyway, I'll definitely keep an eye out for that stand again, they had some great stuff!




Staring at the ceiling


Yup, still got a bad back. I could work almost a full day today, but then I got too tired and achy so I went home to rest on the couch. This has been my view a lot lately. Makes me think of:

- we should really fix that hanging cable 
- and the socket is pretty ugly
- I wonder what's in those boxes?
- maybe I should re-read all if the Disc World books!
- I wonder what's above those boring ceiling boards?
- is there a cup cake left?
- I wonder which of the cats is sleeping on my foot? 

Anyway. I have my fourth chiropractor-session tomorrow and there has definitely been improvements, so I'm pretty optimistic about the back-situation in general. Just right now though, I feel a bit cranky and bored. I need to get off the couch and move around a bit so I don't get too stiff. Maybe I should check if there are any more cup cakes...

super-hero friday


On Friday A and I 
went to see the new Man of steel-movie. It was ok... Superman has always been a bit to nice for my taste. Anyway. What could've been a better accessory than the Batman ring I got that very same day as a belated birthday gift from my friend and colleague F! Beautiful

My new dress + the cats

Just to take a break from all the back-pain whining, an outfit from last week. This is me in my new dress from Indiska. A very all-round dress: comfortable, good fit, pretty, great colours... And there's the cats as well.





Out of order

So after two days just lying down and my back hurting as soon as I moved I felt a bit better this morning and went to work. But halfway through the day I gave up and got myself an appointment with a chiropractor. He took an X-ray of my back and there was some stuff there that wasn't where it was supposed to be. After some "adjusting" he told me to go home and not to sit. I can lie down or I can walk, but not sit. And I'm supposed to go back tomorrow for another treatment. So here I am, not allowed to work at my computer, resting on the couch with the cats, an iPad, my phone and chocolate. And here's the culprit:
