Ooops

I really don´t know what happened today. After work I set off towards one of Stockholm´s shopping malls in quest for a new egg slicer. 20.00 I entered our flat with the following: one jeans jacket, one wallet, three vest tops, two short-sleeved tops, one shirt, one vest, a lot of socks, one potato peeler, one tea infuser and a bag of clamps for plastic bags. No egg-slicer.

But I am happy, because normally I can spend hours and hours walking in and out shops, in vain. This morning I said for the umptieth time: I have nothing to wear! With the spring coming and all. Now I do! That we cannot slice our morning eggs properly seems like a minor problem now, when I have my new clothes. (No, I am not rich - I just got my salary. And yes - a lot of sales going on! I got everything but one of the tops and the wallet on sale. And thank God, I don´t have to buy clothes for a long time now! I hate it.)

I will try to buy an egg-slicer again tomorrow. You see, I didn´t find anything for my legs (trousers, skirts, whatever)and maybe the phenomenon will happen again - that I set out for the slicer and actually find things.

When I got home I made an imropvised pasta with spinach, chorizo, onion and food yoghurt - quite good but nothing to write about. Cannot live without chorizo though! It is so good, real comfort food. Not that I needed comfort, but anyway. And now if you excuse me I am going to pick out a great outfit for tomorrow...

I'm surprised that you can find chorizo in Sweden. I, being from the southwest US, have been addicted to it for decades.

Happens to me all the time, Kristina. Going for one thing, coming back with bags full of other things:)
I'm sure you'll get your egg slicer next time!

Ditto Pille. I can't seem to be able to resist sometimes. But like you, when I come back with bags full, it's because some kind of sale was going on. It's so pleasant when we get to buy new clothes...
