My room.

2013-12-31

We are starting the renovations on my room soon. Matt just got ceiling paint and moving boxes, which I need to fill.

I also need to pick out a wall paper. I want one in front of my desks, and the plan is to paint the other three walls in a matching light colour. I can’t decide on which wall paper I want though, how unusual. I want something with colour, something fun. These are four I’ve been looking at. Oh, and the floor will be a light oak history.

I really love this one, it feels very 70ies. Yellow could be sweet. But I was planning to find drawers at flee markets to paint in bright colours, and that might not do well with this paper. The background looks a bit off-white which would be nice for the other walls.


I had almost decided on this one already, but the yellow trees came in. This would probably match my idea with painted drawers better, but not sure if it’s too much. The other walls would be white.


This one is just nice, and lovely.. not really what I had in mind.


Not what I had in mind either, but I like them so here they are.

So how does a person who can’t make decisions decide now?


Christmas pt. 1

2013-12-30

I spend Christmas at my parents house in Sm├ąland, it’s a 4h trip which we do the same way every year. Matt drives me and the cats to a meeting point 2h away and we met up with my parents there who’s also done a 2h trip. Me and the cats change cars and then we all drive back.

It would be impossible to go by train with bags and two cats, one which weighs over 7kg. And screams in his box. The other one uses the box as a litter box, sometimes twice. Nightmareish.

It was a pretty quiet Christmas, my bro wasn’t with us for the first time which was a bit odd. He, Joni and Lina spent it with her family, but we’ll get Joni next Christmas. It was me, my parents, my oldest brother Micke, granny and my uncle.

And the gifts. I got a HUGE stack of fabrics from Joni, she has such good taste.

I suspect little miss Joni had an idea of new clothes with this gift. I also got Sharpist scissors, which was perfect as I was thinking about getting one for my decals.

I got a speaker to use for my phone as well. I wanted one for when I sew on my machine, I listen to podcasts on my phone but it’s almost impossible to hear over the machine, so a speaker would be nicer. Though the one I got wasn’t that loud so we went to trade it in for another one, they didn’t have any so I asked for money back. I think the sales person had eaten 50 lemons. He wasn’t at all pleased, ‘We don’t normally do that.. I can see you have opened this box.’ It wasn’t a sealed box. So we did try it for about 4 minutes, how else would you know if it’s any good, then we put it back. He couldn’t give my cash, or put money on my card, I had to email him my account number.. he went on with sighs. When we walked out we realized he didn’t give me a recite or anything to prove I had turned in something.

Matt went back and told him we needed one, and the sales person said ‘You can trust me!’ ..to which matt said ‘I have no idea who you are.’ ‘We have AWESOME reviews online, you can check it!’ ‘…still, it doesn’t say anything to me. We need a recite.’ ‘FIINE!’ He was so very nice, and we will definitely.. never go back.

Though we did after 15 minutes when Matt realized he knew his account number. Sales person was very happy to see us again, and after Matt had written down his number he pulled the paper from the table and said ‘I’ll just do it now then!’ I hope the money arrives today.

I’m tempted to give them a review.


Table-Grace.

2013-12-21

When Amanda was pregnant in The Mentalist, they made her sit a lot. Or made her hide behind things. Basically through the whole season 5. It became a fun thing to see what she was sitting behind in every new episode. I have certainly not watched this show to much, and I absolutely did not go through season 5 to find these images to make this gif.

Ok, I did.

My top 3 list:
3. Bar disk
2. Water container
1. Table on wheels with boxes!


The Mentalist.

2013-12-04

So, now we know who Red John is. It was not who I thought it was. There’s a tiny spoiler after the photos.

I discovered The Mentalist when it was in the middle of Season 1. I got stuck because of Simon Baker. I love, love, love, love Simon Baker. And the character of Patrick Jane, he does it so well. When I find a new actor who I like I tend to look them up on Imdb and watch whatever is on their list there. So I watched all of The Guardian and all of his movies I could find (Sex & Death 101.. no words needed).

Any ways. The Mentalist.

I really thought Red John would be Brett Partridge. The irksome one. He fit so well and was so darn creepy and awkward. I was a bit disappointed when it turned out to be the weird sheriff.

I’m re-watching the series now. I’m one of those people. I’ve probably re-watched it four times by now. Yes. Well, one of the reasons to watch it again was to see how that sheriff acted when he was in an episode. And also to see it all again.
I really, really hope they continue with a season 7.

Also. His favourite blue cup is broken.
