Got my glasses yesterday!

I have had a pretty bad cold several days (almost all the week). But I was called to come and work on Monday and Thursday. So I did that.

I missed the last Italian lesson… Oh well. I have the school book, so I can read it myself.

Yesterday after work I went to pick up my glasses and sunglasses. πŸ™‚ I have not had a chance to try my sunglasses yet, because there is no sun… Right now lots of snow comes down from the sky! The winter came back!

I’ll bake some muffins after dinner and tonight I will watch a movie that I have borrowed from the library.

Glasses, F1 etc.

Last Friday I went to check my sight. At the same time I chose new glasses. πŸ™‚ They will come in about two weeks, so at the end of the month. But they might come sooner too. I will get a text message when I can go and pick them up.

It will be interesting, because I don’t really remember what they look like! πŸ˜€ They had an offer of two glasses for one, so I also chose sun glasses. It’s the first time I will wear sun glasses. The lenses are thicker, so I can use them without the regular glasses. That has always been an issue for me. I can’t use those cheap sun glasses you find in many stores and flea markets. They need to come with thicker lenses so I can see. Of course I had to pay for the lenses of the sun glasses, but the frame was free.

For the first time I had them take pictures of the back of the eyes. I don’t know what it is called in English. But they have a machine that can take pictures of the bottom of the eye, the part that you can’t see. Those pictures turned out to be okay, so they didn’t find anything unusual in those pictures, which is nice to know. Apparently you should take those pictures every second or third year.

I still miss Niki. The house feels so empty without a cat. 😦 It’s the small things you miss the most. Like making whipped cream… Niki always wanted to lick some of the cream. Now I don’t have anyone who licks the whipped cream. I even miss him waking me up during the night, scratching his paws on my door.

I really, really want to have a little kitten! But I have not found anything yet. On Saturdays the local newspaper has ads where people want to sell/buy etc. Sometimes they announce that they have kittens, but not yet. An other free magazine comes out on Wednesdays and they have similar ads, but sadly no kittens there either.

I even have a name for the kitten. πŸ™‚ I just need to find him. There will be kittens born in May. A man has offered us one of the kittens born in May. But May is so far away. It’s only March. And God knows how long the kittens have to stay with their mother. Several weeks. It means I would not get it home until June or July… 😦 So please, God, let me found a kitten in the newspaper ads long before that!

Oh, well… there is nothing to do but to wait. To try and make the days go faster. Sunday really dragged itself through mud. Sunday felt very long.

This weekend the F1 season starts in Australia. πŸ™‚ Looking forward to that. Kimi Raikkonen drives for Ferrari and Valtteri Bottas has moved to Mercedes. It will be interesting to see both drivers.

In memory of Niki

It’s almost a week since March 10, which was a Friday. I have not felt like writing before. Now I will write a little about Niki, my cute cat that passed away that horrible day. 😦

16 years and 11 months. His birthday was March 23. So next week is his 17th birthday. Or was. He may celebrate it in heaven, or wherever his soul is now.

We got the beautiful cat in May 13, 2000. Of course then he was just a little kitten.

I will miss him forever. Pets are like family members, so losing them is very difficult.

It’s hard writing this, even after almost a week since his passing. 😦

Rest in peace, Niki! I love you and will always love you.

 

Movie night

I went to the cinema tonight to watch La La Land. I had not watched the trailer before. The only things I knew about the movie were whatever they said or showed on the Academy Awards, which I watched live between 3.30 am and 7 am.

It got six Oscars, and I am sure it deserves it. But honestly, it was boring at times. And the story itself was a bit weird with the woman thinking how her life would have been if she had stayed with the musician.

Sure, the dancing and most songs were really good and the movie was made in a good way. πŸ™‚ But I don’t think I will get in on DVD. May be when the DVDs are lowered to cost 5-10 euros, but not as soon as it comes out. It’s a good movie, but for me it was just a good movie. I have seen many more movies that I enjoyed much more. And where I didn’t yawn…

Lots of wet snow when I walked home from the cinema.
