The first day of this year was spent in front of TV with Matrix. I have seen the first one before so today I watched the other two. The flat is a mess. But I guess it doesnt have to be clean on the very first day, does it?;) Today Im going to watch Twin Peaks. They start to show it in FIN again. Heard so much about it so have to check it out! Kari even bought a soundtrack few days ago!!

:) we choose different kinds of cereals to cheer us up in the morning :) These were Kellogg's Rice Krispies Multi Grain. Actually, we have tried them few months ago and they were much better then this particular box we got last week. Dont know if they changed the taste or sth is wrong with our box:)

@Jissy: we often eat sandwiches for breakfast. Not too healthy also ;) But try to cover it by drinking Actimel and eating cereal;)
@Erica: and fir trees!
@Simon: Try something else for a change:)
@Sunshinecity: you are having breakfast too? I thought Italians only drink espresso.. ;) Dont worry, you will enjoy your breakfast together more when you will know how much you have waited for it. Be strong!

A package from Jissy (February 20, 2007)

Today I received a package from Jissy and oh my how great it was! Everything to feel spoiled and loved! She sent me beautiful tea tins with a heavenly smelling tea (Whittard of Chelsea: Very Very Berry, Lemon and Apple, Summer Strawberry), All butter orange cookies from Crabtree&Evelyn, 17 Cherry Tree Lane Soap (mmmmmmmmmm), Shea body butter, lavender fragrance oil, a personal note and a huge box of devine chocolate! The same chocolate I was craving for after seeing in her photostream! So thoughtful of her to remember and include it into the package!
Lucky lucky me!

And yes, after that package does it really matter what else happened today??!!

A snapshot from my phone camera. Me with yet another work outfit ;) I got 4 days in Lindström this week, have no idea what's next week.. Seems like there is work for me right now and it makes it tough to decide whether I should visit home in Vln or wait and use the possibility of work...

I work from 6am to 2pm, which leaves me half a day free. I kinda like it, even if I hate to wake up so early. I might get used to this, though.

Came home, had some quality time with flickr;), cleaned a bit, went to shop with Kari and then he cooked a beef soup!! Now my boy is off to a bar to have a beer with a friend and colleague visiting the town.

I was real tired after work today.. Fell asleep on sofa with Kari and his pc on the other side:) Nothing much happened today. Thus a shot of what I saw when woke up ;)

Was a bit down because of how not stable my work life is. Makes it difficult to plan things. Or settle down in a way. Made the decision to delay my Vilnius trip. Feel sad an try to bring up as many reasons for that as I can! Well, I just have to learn being ok with my decisions and not analyze them over and over again..

I talked to my family on skype. This time there was my mum's sister with her family and it was really nice to talk to them too!
In the evening we went to watch the "Blood Diamond" (Kari and me) and ended the evening on sofa at home watching Bond.

Went to work, enjoyed my lunches with Natalia, because she is the only one I am at ease in there. And in Finland too ;) Except my boy, of course! :)
Had a pile of old shop receipts and tried to find the one of my shoes as they broke after only few weeks of wearing. Went to shop (not the same one I bought them at but same chain) and found out I cant give them back and get a new pair or get the money back. Have to do that in the shop I bought them (which was in Helsinki.. To go there and back is the price I paid for those shoes!). Well, shop assistant wasnt even sure I will get anything as the shoes were discounted. Grr!!!
Good thing - went to a gym in the neighborhood to inquire about aerobics classes. Thinking to start working out a bit.

A Saturday full of events. Went to Tampere with Kari and met Asta, a fellow Lithuanian living there:) We had a great time talking about our lives in Finland. Before meeting her I had an hour free to wander in Stockmann. These tulips in women's wc cheered me up! After the tea with Asta, I went to have lunch with Kari and his acquaintance Jussi, who appeared to have a Lithuanian stepmother! We ate real good curry in a local pub. After that we spent a lot of time in a new shopping mall called "Idea Park" and, of course, couldn't resist buying:) I received two presents - a cheerful orange straw (?) box (I like boxes!) from Moko and the cutest metal snail made by a local blacksmith. The snail fits so well the metal candle holders we have.
Then we watched "Sea Biscuit" at home.

Lazy Sunday at home. We only went out to window shop (everything closed on Sundays here..) for a half an hour. I found a place that sells Cinnamon Apple Spice Herb Tea of Celestial Seasonings!!! I have tried that tea many years ago in a Vilnius pub and have been wanting to try it again but have failed to find it until now. Funny thing, when I got back to the bar the other day and asked for that particular tea, the waitress swore they had never had it! :)
Kari prepared an awesome dessert from apple, peach, whipped cream and kinuski sauce (Caramel like).

Back to work after the weekend that went too fast :) I sleep really long now when I have evening shifts. Usually I wake up at 10 and get some things done, but sometimes my day is: waking up at 12, wandering around the flat for 1,5 hour, getting ready to go to work, 1 hour of commute, working, back home at 11.10pm, an hour around the house and then to bed... Eventually I feel like my life is passing by :) So I asked from the agency to give me morning shifts. As otherwise Im not going to wake up early!!

A morning view out of the flat. Winter is long gone here, it was +15C today. I talked a lot to my mum in the morning, then we watched a movie together. When my dad came home, we went to shop and they cooked me one of my favourite dishes "Balandeliai" (minced meat with rice wrapped in cabbage leaves). I used to feed the cabbage to my cat or throw away as I was a child ;) but I like it a lot more now.
My old room is occupied by my brother and it makes me feel somehow lost in here, as if I dont have my own space at home here in Vilnius. When my friend came to spend an evening with me, it took time to get him and his girlfriend out to his own room.. I feel a bit selfish as I dont live here anymore but I really need to have this room for my use at least when Im here!
I spent a great evening with Ernesta, we talked and talked about everything and it felt like the whole time on the earth is not enough. I came to realize long time ago already that old friends are irreplaceable :)
So good to be at home. And strange at the same time. Im missing Kari by my side to feel right. Yeah, already!..
Need to sit down and plan my week. Dont have much time but want to see people dear to me and still have some time in town on my own. Vilnius is gorgeous, I missed the old feel of it so much.
So many thoughts in my head, so many emotions. I wish I can come here more often in the future, it's been too long I was away. But it's so great that when I talked to my parents and my friend, it seemed I had never left. I wish it would be possible to move them all to Finland or move Kari here.

I went to town today! Overslept my meeting with Gabi cos I fall asleep only around 3am every night. Im so used to my bed in FIN and my man next to me:)
It was so good to go to town, see the streets, people, use the public transport.. I waited for Gabi at the Cathedral square and really enjoyed just being there. She took me to drink Frappe in Metaxa (she has spent half a year working in Greece) and told me the unbelievable stories of her trips. Gosh, that girl is crazy! :) I received a gift from her - a lovely Turkish evil eye amulet.
Then I met my cousin Jonukas for a movie (Norbit - really bad, but I guess just right for a 15 year old..), we ate at Cili and had few rounds in Rimi to make official photos and take some copies for him. Our meeting went too fast, I shouldnt try to see many people in one day.. NB!
Then I met Ernesta and her friend and colleague Jonathan (hope i spelled it right..) in the same Cili and we had a good laugh and interesting conversation. Mainly about movies:) He reminds me of my friend Tim a lot!

The first and only shot of the day:) I was supposed to go shopping with my mum but did it with my dad instead. We went to Maxima baze, where he was pretty bored to follow me everywhere :) And probably thought that women can never do their shopping in 10min.. Well:) I just enjoyed being in a Lithuanian shop. Seeing Lithuanian prices. Being able to choose whatever I want without counting the money. Student times are over.. :)
I spent the evening with Ernesta watching "The Final Cut" and "The Prince and Me".

Long long day.. The last day before leaving. The only day I actually had a chance to spend more time in Vilnius. Didnt have a long calm walk with my camera as I have dreamed of. Next time then..
I met my friend Gabi. We had ice-cream in Sopranos (yum!) as we used to while we were students. I wish I had more time and was less absent-minded and lost somehow to be there for her and to listen to her. She had so much to share.
Then we met Ernesta in Parko kavine and I had the worst apple pie ever! :)
I had my hair done. Going to be curly for a while now :)
Went home to spend the last evening with my parents. Every day they asked me what I want for dinner. And prepared whatever I requested... :)
I packed and watched a "Ghost Rider" with my brother.

Slept two hours, woke up at 4.30am, received a lift from bros friend to the airport, left LT soil at 6.45am and touched FIN's at about 8.30am. Was at home around 11am and went straight to bed:)

It was the first time when I went to work with a bike (about 25min). Was a bit scary to bike so late and alone at first but then I loved it! Calm and empty town, wind and gorgeous sky took the tiredness away. It seemed that there are no troubles in the world :)

Long Friday. Was waken up by a call from the agency - a guy hurt himself and didnt come to work that day so I was asked to replace him. I ended up working two shifts. It went better than I thought it would :)

Pavasari mano pavasari..
Such a great, easy and relaxing day! Went shopping to Hml, Iittala and later to Idea Park near Tampere. We were very surprised to find out that our neighbours Matti and Hanna were getting married that day! Slapukai!!! :)
We also received some sad news, Kari sister's husband fell from a ladder and broke his wrist. So we went to visit him in hospital.

The only shot of the day - a tree behind the living room window..
Watched "Step Up" and "Haven". Enjoyed "Step Up" quite a lot - I guess I was needing a movie of the kind :)

Easter Sunday didnt go as I was thinking it will, so we kinda moved our Easter dinner to Monday:) I made a fruity lamb pata from one of my recipe books and it was one of those rare cases when I liked what I cooked:) We went for a walk and found out that there is a new walking and running path open next to the castle. Beautiful! Then we ate Subway and watched "Mies vailla menneisyyttä " (The man without a past) by Aki Kaurismäki.

I have morning shifts this week! Hope I can have same next week.. Learned quite a lot at work today because got tired of constantly asking colleagues to help with certain issues :) Time to handle them myself. It was freezing in the morning but the day was beautiful: sunny with white clouds in the blue sky.
In the pic: Im trying to grow this spring onion (?) but it seems to be very stubborn..
