Juhannus Again!

After another 6,5 hour work cleaning the shelves in the store today, I came home exhausted again (read: collapsing on the sofa with my smelly feet - well, what do you expect after doing hard work with my socks and shoes on?), but my heart feels light, because tomorrow is a holiday for me HUA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...Finally my body can have proper rest!!!

One good thing about this kind of job training is that I can come home and think of nothing. I don't have to think about my undone tasks or the grumpy people I've met (because I've only been dealing with things, not people) and I've been burning calories.

I joked to Arttu today, "If I don't lose weight after doing this for 15 days, I'm going to S-C-R-E-A-M!" LOL LOL!!! I do want to lose weight, by the way, before I go to Indo, because I'm 1000000% sure that I'm going to gain weight when I'm there HE HE HE HE HE HE HE...

Now I get sidetracked...Speaking of this training, NO, it's not a permanent job. It's just a compulsory training that the course asks us to do for 15 days. Besides, I'm not sure that they have a job to offer and I don't think I want to do this kind of job even if they ask me to he he he...

Anyway, Midsummer Day (this coming Saturday) is a big day for everybody here, so tomorrow most places are only open for a few hours. Funnily enough, in our course we're taught that on Midsummer Day, people party a lot and they build a big campfire and roast sausages there, but I've never seen one yet, even though I've lived here for about a year and 3 months.

Tomorrow hubby and I are going to my in-laws. YIIPPPPPPPIIIIIIIIIIIEEEE!!! Last week we didn't go there, so I miss them already. Other than them, I also miss the kind of serenity that their place has to offer. A nice walk to the lake, their sauna, their warmth...playing cards with my MIL and hubby...I LOVE routine like this!!!

And I can't wait to see her blooming flowers, though I'm slightly afraid that tomorrow it'll rain again just like today he he he...If "summer" here keeps on being rainy and gloomy, I'll be SO SO SO SO glad that we're going to Indo in October when it starts to get dark again, because then we can enjoy the sun there HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...

OK, time to watch a movie and relax.


  1. Wow, you've been working so hard, you deserve a good rest this weekend! Go have a good sauna session and all the aches will disappear.

  2. yeah...enjoy ur weekend, amel. Nice to chat with u yesterday :D

  3. So nice to hear you have a good relationship with your in-laws. Flowers, lake, sauna and warm company. It sounds perfect. Enjoy!

  4. Hey Amel,

    "Work sets us free!" that's what they say! ;D

    Lose weight? Who? You? Girl, you don't need to lose weight, you look fine!! Plus if you lose too much weight it might get complicated when you get pregnant (foetus needs mom's fat)! It is preferable to the opposite: go to Indo, if you gain weight there, do your tae-bo and eat salads, fibers, fruits, vegies for 4 months in a'll see it will all go back to its place!

    I am glad Summer arrived there! It arrived here too and boy, am I ever so happy :D!

    Darling, have a blessed weekend and a well deserved rest :D!


  5. Uh huh! So it's training for some possible job offers! Good luck! Train hard.

    Weekend is here. Relax. Sit back. Chill!

  6. have a great weekend, amel :)

  7. Everybody, THANKS for your visit! I had a GREAT time with my in-laws yesterday and today he he...I'll post some pics later!

    Max: No, I only want to lose 2-3 kg only. Not too much he he he...I think I still have time to lose weight after my training and then I don't need to lose more by the time I'm close to going back to Indo he he he...Don't worry!!!

    Hope you've had FAB weekend, everybody! I'll visit you guys later!
