Next Tuesday I will be one year wiser and did invite some people over for tomorrow afternoon. So I did go to the city yesterday and had a nice outing at the market and fishmarket and, yes, did some shopping. It is beautiful weather, a bit frost and sunshine. I did buy a lachs filet that is now becoming graflachs in my fridge. Today I cleaned my flat, once again sorted my endless flow of papers and it looks really nice now. Just now I had a calory light dinner, Icelandic shrimps and octopus rings with some onion and a tiny bit of garlic (tiny because of the smell) and rice and is was delicious. That did remind me of a time our family was in Mallorca, for about six weeks I think and I was about eleven years old. I loved the spanish food and specially Paella. Once I went with my father to visit some friends in another hotel and they were eating ordinary food, like roastbeef with gravy and I felt so sorry for them. I did not understand why they would not get the "good" food. Poor suckers.
My work is going well and I am quite happy. I even have time to knit and read "not university" stuff. What a better life could one wish for.

Time is passing - as it should. I am getting f. f. (fat and flabby) and I do not like myself, but probably this is an universal problem (not liking oneself extremely much). I have started eating whole rice and beans and will not buy any more bread. I also started again my rope yoga, on the floor in my flat, I did take my ropes with me from home.
Today it has been snowing all day long, fat, nice round flakes and I have heard that the traffic around me is more or less down. I have not looked at it myself. Today the muse kissed me and I got a good spell on rewriting my assignment. Thus, work does go as it is expected to go and after a difficult first week I have settled well in again. I did knit me a nice cap (picture will follow very soon) and have read lots of books, both private and for study. I did buy this little gadget for my computer and it works beautifully, I spent one morning, when I woke up at half past 5 and ran my filmes through. Of course I do not find the most important one, or I took over it.
But I did pass all three of my autumn assignments and got A for two and B for one. I hate Bees!
