I am going to teach you a word in Swedish today:
Punka, or actually it's a slang word for a flat tyre.
Without having to mention the tyre in Swedish, you can easily express how I feel today: I have got "punka", I am feeling flat as a tyre, no energy left for anything really and all I want to do is pull the duvet over my head and hide.
Well am I not a Friday-mood spoiler.
So instead of moaning about all the bad things I can come to think of (they are a few!) I am going to pep myself and anyone else who need a bit of cheering up. All you have to do is to think of 5 things that make you feel good and hopefully that will sway your mind into a better gear. Never mind how small a things it is as long as they make you feel better.
*ok, being in Ior-mood, I had to think hard here, but here it goes:*
*Sleepless in Seattle - I know for some of you it's an ancient movie, but it has always made me feel very good, the first time I watched this I was at a very good place in my life (or maybe I took the step into this great place just afterwards I am not really sure..) *making note of watching it this weekend*
*Watching the sea - I've hardly been outside for the past 2 weeks, having had a cold and juggling both work and children (while O has been wining and dining in the big capital, staying at a hotel *yes, I am allowed to view his get-up-at-4am-fly-to-capital-sleep-at-2star-hotel-trips like that, this is my list and when you haven't been allowed to go to the bathroom on your own for a couple of days, this is how you reason!* So we have to go to the beach this weekend, no matter how much work there is to be done.
*Give myself a pat on the back, I have actually managed to clear some goods through customs and looking at it a week ago, it didn't seem doable in 1week's time, but I did it! *sending many annoying emails can get you far, in the end people grow so tired of you they simply do their job to get rid of you!*
*Watch the children, 2year old J is so funny nowadays, she is talking quite a lot and if I just let go of all the "I must-stuff" she really gives me a toddlers perspective on life.
*Listen to music that is not "I am a duck, quack, quack", which has been playing all week since we installed Cs little stereo in his room. This track always gets me in a good mood (it was a soundtrack to You've Got Mail (do you see the Meg Ryan-thread here?), another feel-good movie for me. The clip is actually from her movie Kate and Leopold, but just imaging yourself walking though a crisp autumn city with this song playing.
Have a great Friday evening, *enjoy, I feel better already..*
