Oon ollut viime viikolla vähän ahne. Päätin aloittaa ja tehdä 'viikko meidän kanssa'-postauksen, jossa siis seurataan mun ja läheisteni elämää yhden arkiviikon (viime viikko) ajan Suomessa. Vastaavan postaussarjan tein Kiinassa joulukuussa 2013, joten jo on aika tehdä uusi. Tähän minua motivoi jälleen Kaitaliina. Jokainen päivä tulee siis tasan viikon myöhässä. Yritän saada ainakin nää ulos, tosin tällä hetkellä en ymmärrä mihin bittiavaruuteen katsoivat keskiviikon kuvat...
I have been greedy. I started a 'Week with us' post last week again, so this is a snapshot of last week with us in Finland. Every day there is one post and it's exactly one week later.Monday morning I wake up at 7:30 and 8:05 I am at the gym of my office.
I complete a HIIT, take a shower and then it's time for breakfast at the office.
In the middle of my breakfast my aunt calls me for help and I accompany her to the bank and safety box of my deseased great aunt.
Working day is busy and I didn't take pictures of it. We plan the coming event of the week and my colleagues have been working day and night with three Horizon2020 proposals which have a deadline tomorrow. In the afternoon we get a special visitor, who is my professor's wife. She's come to give us her dissertation book as her defence will be on Friday. We haven't met for like 9 months, so there's lots to talk about.
Then I rush off the office to get my son from daycare.
Every day at 1630 as I leave the daycare, I speak on the phone with my childhood friend. This time we talk about the previous week's party nights.
We pick up my husband from home and then head to the Seppälä Citymarket.
There is a Koti-pizza with a playground there, which Tops is very happy to play in while my husband shops. We go to Seppälä Citymarket due to the fact that there is an asian supermarket there. Otherwise we go to Keljo. Monday is a shopping day.
If you don't have to bring autistic kid to the food store, you won't. Not that he is currently bad behaving, but there's always chances for melt downs, like the apple counter, which might get the treatment of 'I will make a fit because you are buying me one apple, not all the apples'...
Today he plays so nice that I have time to read(!) Game of Thrones...
After that, it's time to change poo nappy. His stomach is clockwork.
/ We come back home to the usual Monday mess.
/ I start by organising food into the fridge.
/ I get a reward kiss as there's many groceries which are his favourite there.
My work here is done...
But small helper disagrees and starts to 'help'.
/ Which are his ultimate favorite shoppings? Well, if there's no apples, then satsumas.
I start to hoover.
Upstars another explosion, including the bed that he's taken apart again.
After the cleaning day's program:
Some laundry still to sort.
But then I remember to call my brother about Friday's schedule with the car and child minding.
Upstairs I contemplate which outfits to wear this week.
/And the outfits become small piles in the shelf.
We watch Cucumber and Banana (Russel T Davis series), but as our son will not go to sleep and is quite anxious jumping around, we decide not to try Game of Thrones.
I eat luxury olives, but as Tops is still not calming down and asks us to get to bed with him, we all fall asleep at 2230. That's rare. And that was Monday with us.
