Another computerless day

Still no word about the computer. 😦 Looks like this will go on until Monday at least. The repair shop is open a few more hours today but I don’t think they will call today.

I am at the library now. I just registered 7 postcards that I got yesterday! 😀 That’s the record for me.

Later in the afternoon me, mum and my sister with two of her kids (her husband and oldest son is out of town for a soccer game) will go to a pizza place where they have much more than pizzas. I will probably eat chicken wings. I haven’t been there for a very long time, so it’s going to be fun to see what they have there. Ice cream (sundae) for dessert, of course!

The internet site that I checked wrote that the free practice session would start at 5 am and the qualifying at 8 am. Well, I had my alarm clock to wake me up shortly before 5 am. I turned on the TV and noticed that the practice really started at 6 am! And the qualifying at 9 am! So I put the alarm clock back on and slept for another hour. 🙂 What a shame that there was a big crash with Kvyat in the end of the qualifying. Kimi didn’t have a chance to drive his second fast lap. He starts 6th tomorrow.

Just saw a super cute image of Robin Raikkonen in a mini-Ferrari outfit!! 😀 Kimi was sitting on the floor and Robin (with his back to the camera was standing before Kimi.

My niece was happy for the crocheted doll that she got back yesterday. She would take it with her today when they go for a visit to my grandmum, which they usually do almost every Saturday.

I got an order for two more of those crocheted dolls! My sister-in-law would like me to make one each for her two small nieces (the daughters of her brother). One light blue and one green. So I will have plenty to crochet before Christmas. I think I will make a few clothes for those dolls as well, but may be not as many as I did for my own niece.

I think I will go to some shop and see if I can find some more yarn so I don’t run out of it.

Happy Birthday to me! :D

My birthday is today! 😀

A perfect birthday gift would be to get my computer back. But it may be broken beyond repair… 😦 If it is, 5000+ photos will be lost forever… So I really hope the computer repair guys find a solution and can fix it. They would call when it’s ready or at least when they know if it can be repaired or not.

I quit work a little earlier today. Now I am a regular customer in the library, using the computer here.

I will get some birthday guests tonight, so I will soon go home and get ready.

This weekend they are driving F1 in Japan. I missed the first free practice, because I simply forgot that it comes very early in the morning. The second practice I could not watch because I had to get ready for work. I must see what time they are driving tomorrow. Apparently it is rainy, so that is not good for Kimi. But who knows what will happen.

Today my niece will get her crocheted doll back when she comes for my b-day celebration. I finished a vest for the doll early this morning. I have taken pictures of the doll and the clothes and I will post the pictures here whenever I get the whole computer thing solved. I cannot upload pictures when I am using the computer in the library.

Well, I’d better go home now. See if I have received any PostCrossing postcards today…

Making clothes for a doll

So nice to see Kimi Räikkönen on the podium today after the Singapore GP! 😀 Although he seemed disappointed as usual… He just wants to win. I guess he doesn’t really care about the third prize trophies! 😉

I made a crocheted kind of doll (it’s blue, with a huge head, long arms and legs and big feet!) to my niece a while ago. Now she has given it back to me, so I can crochet some clothes for the doll. He already has a scarf and a winter hat, because the descriptions for those where in the book. But I have had to figure the other clothes out myself. I have made a baseball cap, a pair of mittens, a pair of leg warmers (which I actually knitted today! The other items I have crocheted.) I guess she wants it back on Friday next week when she is coming for my birthday party, so I will try to make some more clothes during next week.

I wish I had more time though, because the work takes several hours a day. I still have a week and a half left of the work.

Lots of rain the last few days. I had to go to my “old” library on Friday. 50 minutes cycling in heavy rain in the morning, 50 minutes cycling in heavy rain in the afternoon… 😦 No, I did not enjoy it. But lots of people were striking (refused to go to work, protesting against the government and what not…) I would have been able to take the bus in the morning, but not been able to take the bus home in the afternoon. So I kind of didn’t have any alternative. I had to take the bike. Lucky I didn’t get too wet because I had good rain clothes and wellington boots when I was cycling. 🙂

Better go to bed now. I hope the rain will be much less next week.

Theater night

I am going to the Finnish theater tonight to watch a play! 😀 It’s the final rehearsal, but it’s like an actual show. The tickets are a bit cheaper tonight.

I am working tomorrow. So it’s a long week. But I have a day off on Monday, so that’s nice. 🙂

Got a cute cat postcard from Switzerland today! 😀

It’s a sunny day. Hope it doesn’t start raining.
