In Sweden, tax declarations are due this week. It effectively signals the book-end
of last year and harkens in a new (tax) era. Last week also surprised us
with sudden hail and snow, so I'm more than ready for April to be over.
We finally had a plummer out here to look at the leaky pipe. He flushed it
and dropped in a camera to check if anything was broken. Nothing was.
There will be no pulling apart the outer wall, no huge costs.
It turns out I have been fretting and stalling for a simple blockage...
My doctor signed off on my diagnosis last week and I have been granted
sick leave until fall. It's great in the way that it takes the pressure off
finding a job, but it makes me wonder if I should try to find something
to do with my time - like take a course in jewelry making or something.
I have been going a bit crazy in the jewelry department lately,
scouring Swedish Ebay for earrings. I pierced my ear as a lark
the other week, just to see if it was easily done - but I didn't think ahead
as far as earrings go... So I have spent the last two weeks remedying that :)
The two in the top left corner were left over from the sale of the store
and the ones with the purple leaves were a gift from sweet Winter Moon.
The big sparkly ones were only a dollar each, so if it turns out
I can only wear noble metals it's not a great loss.
Speaking of "jewels", I am packing everyone's gifts from the giveaway
last week and will get them in the mail soon. If you are a winner
and still haven't emailed me your address, please do so asap!
How have you guys been?
