Well, this is the day where us Swedes dress up in white, put candles in our hair and sing songs. I did not, because I've been in enough Lucia processions to last me a lifetime. Also, I'm drugged to the gills and easily distracted by shiny things like toothbrushes and cutlery, and every time I sit down, I fall asleep. Despite this, I've spent the day at IKEA with my parents. It was a very interesting experience. ("I'm gonna try that bed over there." "Okay, we'll wake you up when it's time to go home." )
I have aquired a lamp, a shower curtain rod, new curtains for my living room, a table cloth, kitchen scissors, an in/out tray for my mail, six glasses with elephants on them, and two green candles. I am now completely out of money. And Mum bought me a lovely carpet for my living room as an early Christmas gift. Yay for Mum! I also got a potted plant for my sisters, which looks like curly chives. (The plant, not my sisters.)
Now I'm waiting for Dad to give me a ride back to Borlänge where I will without doubt fall asleep again even though I should really really be writing instead. I feel like the lamest person on Earth right now. Anyway, my darling sisters have invited me to dinner tonight. I'll try to stay awake for that at least.
I really really hope I'm feeling better next week or Mr. and Mrs. Boss will think I'm completely pathetic. I was so exhausted after my physio session yesterday morning that I spent most of the afternoon resting on the sofa in the back room. (And Mr. Boss was so nervous that I'd faint again that every time I tried to get up, he ordered me back to the sofa. He even offered to drive me home. My bosses are the best.)
Anyway - what I really was going to write about is St. Lucy's day. I haven't done anything special this year, so I'll just link you to last year's Lucia post - In Which Rodney Wins the Nobel and there are Girls on Fire
Bleh, I really babble when I'm drugged. Going back to work now, I promise!
ETA: Merlin tonight! OMG it will be epic and awesome and probably make me cry and we'll have to wait forever for next season, which, in itself is awesome because there will BE a next season and I should really stop talking now, but I don't know how, because MERLIN!
Shutting up now. Bye.
