You are still our knight!

In life you meet people that has a small or HUGE impact on you and your life.

When I first moved to Australia I met a Knight a real knight in shining armour and all. Our giant that always was there for us during anciety for exams, home sickness, broken hearts, to drunk to stand on our own two legs. He was there our rock, our giant, our Knight.

Today his sickness won he has left our world and is know free from all pain and suffering his illness caused him.

My heart and thoughts go today to Irene and your family.

Res in Peace B. Knight!!

You will always be in our hearts always loved never forgotten!!

Todays to do list

Its sunday, I'm home (for the second weekend in a row!). I have my to do list ready and need to get started. Its a couple of weeks until I have a sunday at home again.

 On todays list:
  • Clean flat study (homework 2 due today) 
  • work (need to have a presentation and homework done by tomorrow) 
  • run (have a couple of km's left to run this week) 
  • Reorganise clothing storage (wardrobe, drawers, floor, etc) 

Sommar-HAJK outro 2.0

I woke up this morning with this song in my head. With the bright coloured leaves outside my bedroom window and rain pooring down it sort of felt fitting to lounge for summer.

New knickers

I have updated with some new knickers lately. Well know all now that there will be no fun between the bed sheets until the knickers are all worn out.

Or this I have been informed. Must be s Murphy's law for single women or something like it!!

Essentiell running clothes

Yes more things! How much do I need? Well fall arrived and with fall we have below zero degrees (ie cloves, beanie and warmer tights) then there is the issue about daylight (ie nice looking reflex jacket) and chinsplints (try compression socks)..

Now I'm set! Until winter and ice arrives (hello icebugs)

Sustainable wardrobe

This fall I have almost my complete wardrobe in one place, ony city. There are some exceptions that is still at my parents place, but this has given me a chance to actually see what I have, what I need and what I use.

Yhea the last part I should have knows clearly from having my wardrobe divided into three, but hey I'm only human. I like buying clothes and well apprently that is a bad thing, since I'm throwing away my money instead of saving them (yadda yadda yadda). For 8 months I have only bought necessary items like new running clothes, bra. I made two slipups: one pair of shoes for €5 and then a bikini for €8.
That was until I got my massive paycheck in end of august. Since then I have updated my wardrobe with some ehm essentials(links for pictures to previous posts):

Then we have the things that I just fell in love with
Things that I still need to get this fall
  •  winter runner tights
  • icebugs (if I continue to run in winter that is)
  • winter/fall boots (I have no allaround boots anymore)

Elsas hemlighet

Elsas hemlighet
By: Sofi fahrman

I have finally gotten around to read the last book in the triology about Elsa the fashion blogger by Sofi Fahrman (here you can read my reviews from the first and second book). Yes I was not impressed by the first book, neither the second and surprise the third is the same.

Yes it is easy to read and you finish it quickly, but I just hate the moral in the book: You can basically screw up as many times possible with your boyfriend AND still get him back, You can make a severe fool of yourself in your job AND still keep it, you can make a fool of yourself in almost any possible living situation AND still have your dignity!

Yes I know its fiction, but this is soo wrong, it gives the stupid blond fashion loving girl that has no brain stamp. I know there are many smart blond fashion loving girls that has managed to make careers without sheer luck/ sleeping their way to the top. yes Elsa the main caracter apperently has a sharp eye for details and is good at what she does, but why is she still so stupidly naive in the third book, make so many rookie mistakes that I am honestly to be ashamed to be a woman that loves fashion, has a brain and now how to behave in many of the sutuations Elsa clearly does not, but she still manages to keep her cred in the fashion world?!

Oh well chicklit as it should be I guess. If you want to hide behind the pillow, be annoyed at blond stupid girls well read it and learn how NOT to behave!

I give it a 2.

1 hour

1 hour that is how long I lasted at work today before I had to see myself defeated and head back home to bed.

The day will be spent in bed reading a book or on the couch infront of a movie

Tuesday 2 october

It is not often it happens, but today I just had to see myself defeated. At 3pm I threw in the towel, went home and crashed in my couch.

I felt a little better around 6pm which is luckily becasue I have laundry tonight, headed down all the stairs and when I came back up 10 min later I felt like I had done a 5km run instead of starting 4 loads of laundry.

Fingers crossed that I wake up tomorrow and feel a lot better.
