I love Jane Austin so I couldn’t help myself
Take the Quiz here!
You are Elinor Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are practical, circumspect, and discreet. Though you are tremendously sensible and allow your head to rule, you have a deep, emotional side that few people often see.
The funny thing is that my (younger) sister got Marianne Dashwood, the younger sister. Funny since the first time I saw the movie-version of the book (well, it was the series actually) I called my sister and told her she had to see it cause we resembled those sisters a lot. And when she saw it, she agreed.

I didn’t have to work today, so I got to work on the request I had gotten. I loved singing this song just as much as I thought I would!

Burned my arm on a hot plate in the café today. I thought I would scream, it hurt so bad! Comforted myself by getting sushi take-away. Honestly I can’t really afford it right now, but sometimes you need to ignore money-issues and just enjoy life.
It wouldn’t be much of a life if you didn’t.
After sushi I went through some mail and online-stuff. I’d gotten a request to sing Six Pence None The Richer - Kiss Me. I love that song! It reminds me of summer and long, bright nights. Honestly I have a couple of requests waiting for me, but this will have to pass them. It’s such a great song! Maybe I’ll have time to record it on sunday?

Today was market eve in my home town so we were open an hour longer than usual. A lot of work led to my break running a “tad” bit late, but at least I got one. (At one point I did wonder.) Last hour it calmed down though. I guess the weather (rain and cold) had some part in that.
As usual I was craving something sweet, so today I got Strawberries. I love to eat them just as they are (well rinsed, but that’s all I do).
I can never get tired of Strawberries, I l♥ve them. I even wear them on my shoes this summer.

I’ve been working 5 hours in the café today. The café is the most stressful part of the job for me. I never seem to manage to close on time. Somehow I still manage to clock out in (good) time though. Probably because I have workmates who help me out. I like my workmates!
I’ll be working a lot in the café during summer so I do hope I get faster with a little training.
I’ve been buying clothes 2nd hand online and today I picked up the package that recently arrived. My sister keeps nagging me about “going out” only I can’t wear a sweatshirt or hoodie *sigh*
What do you think about this one, think she’ll accept it?
It took some time to get a shot that showed the back, I got a lot of pics of my neck though. You really shouldn’t watch close-up of parts of your body. Now I have weird complex-issues about my neck.
The day ended in a good way with my latest addiction; FruitDanish
M did say it when I brought a bag for the 3rd day in a row:
-The café isn’t good for you, ellen
I’ll be rolling instead of walking before this summer has ended

Wow, it’s been ages since I blogged properly. Probably because the more time I spend here, the more I miss HKO. And I miss HKO!
Please bring it back, pretty please!
Anyways, I’m hearing words about HKO getting closer and closer to opening up again, so maybe I dare start blogging for real again?
I’m svamped at work though, so I won’t promise to much, but I’ll do my best. I do miss my blogging as well after all.
