Sugar and caffein kick

Yes that's what I need right now in the late afternoon, and that's exactly what I'm taking. Maxwell house 3 in 1(yumiiiiiiiii) and digestive biscuits with nutella on.. Ehm, that nutella is still evil!!!


I cooked a dish today with potato, onion, meat, crushed tomato, creme fraiche and spiced with curry, pepper and salt. Served with rice and sallad of course. The meal was appreciated and praised. LOL, if you never get praised for your cooking try the following. Cook a really yucky meal and serve it for 2 days in a row(or more) and then cook whatever you usually do. I promise you it'll be appreciated ;)

It's important to try out some new recipes now and then, everyday haha. You should not be afraid of trying new things. WHAT! Did I actually write that? Hahaha, it's funny how someone change a little bit from day to day and then a year or two has passed and the difference is huge.
Oh isn't life wonderful? I'm so happy finally living in my OWN house, flat. My all own cute home. Mmmm, ops that's right OUR home :D

Oh well, now I'll get back to my nutella biscuits and finish drinking my 3 in 1 caffein boost before it gets too cold. I hope you're all having a nice day!

What's your afternoon snack?

ATTENTION EVERYONE!

Never put a glass of water in the refrigerator and "garlicfood".....Or you know, never put "garlicfood" in the refrigerator PERIOD! Eat it all, don't save any. Our refrigerator smells like an arab on a full garlic kebab sauce diet.

I always put a glass of water in the refrigerator before I go to bed in the evening so I can get cold milk with my cornflakes the next morning. Yes, we use powder milk.
Let's just say that neither one of us ate our cornflakes, they tasted like yesterday's dinner.
We both ate bisquits for breakfast instead.

Arabs! Don't get offended. I just don't like the scent to be in my refrigerator....

Will the neighbours come banging on my door?

Well Iam cooking "italian meatballs and tomato creme sauce" the house smells as much garlic as possible. I think I have to open the windows to let some of the smell out. But then will all the people nearby come banging on my door wanting my food? At least I think the people around here like garlic... Hm...

What about you? Is garlic in the food a "YES!!!" or a big "NO NO!"???

I'm so tired!

I can't even explain to you how tired Iam. It just hit me so suddenly-the tiredness. It began on thursday night. I was feeling cold and the headache started. Friday I woke up at 9.45 and the day was pretty okey. Saturday I woke up at 7 in the morning, excercised for 30 minutes and after breakfast I went to bed again and slept for a whole hour. Later in the evening I almost fell asleep on the sofa already at 9.30. Today I could hardly leave the bed in the morning, not until 9 oclock when I had to or my husband would have to eat breakfast all alone before leaving for work. At 5 I went to bed again and slept for an hour. I've had headache all day and I still have it till this very minute.
Oh well the water is hot now, I'll make myself a cup of 3 in 1 maxwell.. Maybe that'll give me a boost.

But what's wrong with me? I don't have any symptoms of getting sick... I'm just feeling so tired and having a bad headache....

I'll tell you again

Football is just a sport! Yes, I understand that a lot of people depend on playing football, or training the players etc. Football is sport AND business for so many people, and yes I can even agree to football being someone's life. But come on people, should we fight over football? Kill eachother? Start a war??

Come on now settle down and behave yourself.........

What's going on?

Yesterday I was so tired and sleepy I fell asleep on the sofa at 9.30. This morning the alarm went off at 8.15 but I was to tired to wake up and kept snoozing the alarm till 9 oclock. I ate breakfast and drank nescafe but Iam still tired/sleepy. And on top of that I have a headache....

I just want to know... What's going on? Am I getting sick??

Arab food!!

Ye, I'm cooking bamiye. It's pretty much cooking itself right now, well with the help of the stove of course. I'll just do some rice and a simple sallad then I'm done cooking for the day :) But I have to start cleaning now, I have so many things to do today!! I guess that's my answer on my "prayers" before when I was "complaining" about having nothing to do :)

Hope you're having a nice day!

Outfit

Well ever since the "blog-era" started one of the most common things to post about has been "Today's outfit". So I was thinking, why don't I do that too? Iam sure all of you are curious to know what I wear and how I look like. So during the day I WILL be posting the picture of my outfit.


But I can't now, I have things waiting to be done. But stay tuned because anytime during the day you'll see me here on my blog in flesh and blood(yuck, but that's how the expression goes right?)


See you later!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------


So now I'm done cleaning up, just have to do the dishes and do dinner. It'll be fish and mashed potato(plus fried rice from yesterday) and a sallad drowned in mayo+lemon.

Okey I better get started now. What's are you eating for lunch/dinner today???

Changes

Okey so I'm doing some changes. Just with the name so far. But I have plans on changing the profile picture and also change my nickname from "Pink flower" to something else. I haven't come up with the "right" name yet. Not for my profile nor for my website. If you have any ideas, feel free to share.

Last night and yesterday

I woke up several times during the night. Had some weird feeling. Can't explain. But I had to lie down on the sofa instead. But I think I slept like 5 minutes after I lied down. Hehe

We have almost just finished breakfast, tea, Special K and milk. I missed my Nescafé :( We drank the last 2 yesterday. I've cleaned up, did the dishes and ironed some clothes. Funny, I only ironed clothes that aren't my own. I don't care for my own, they don't get so wrinkly and besides I'm just home anyway and I soon going to wash them all over again, so what's the point?

Now Iam soon to jump into the shower and freshen up and later we are going out. Yesterday when we were going out I didn't think about my jeans till I sat in the car. Ooops! I was supposed to bring them with me to change them for a smaller(wiho) size. But I guess I'll do that today instead:D

Yesterday I was taking some photos of myself. Ye, I tend to do that when I'm feeling bored. And because we don't have a whole body mirror, yet ;) I NEED ONE!! PLEASE ;) Well anyway, going through the photos I noticed that my white favorite jeans so DO NOT fit me anymore. That was tough:( I love those jeans! But now they just doesn't look nice on me anymore, so I better hide them deep in the closet some where and don't wear them anymore!

I realize I have to buy more trousers too. All of them just don't fit as they should. Well I have one pair that fits perfectly, well okey almost perfect anyway. But a girl needs more than one right? Yesterday when we went windowshopping I got so annoyed. They had 70% sales but it was still expensive :( Boring people who can't do a REAL sale!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday we had dinner at a restaurant named Samurai or something like that. The food was NOT tasty. It was a total disappointment for both of us. But today is a new day and we are planning on eating out again. So another restaurant and another meal and probably another taste :D I hope we'll find something delicious I'm really hungry!

A tip(this is what we usually do): Order one plate of sallad and one plate of a meal of your choice. In this way you'll get a good load of fresh vegetables and cooked food in the same time. Other times we just order 2 different meals of whatever we want and share. In this way we get to taste 2 different meals :) Supersmart :P

Okey, that's all for now, Have a nice day! I'm out!

What doesn't break you only makes you stronger

Sometimes we don't learn from our mistakes
Sometimes we've no choice but to walk away, away
Tried to break my heart
Well it's broke
Tried to hang me high
Well I'm choked
Wanted rain on me
Well I'm soaked
Soaked to the skin

It's the end where I begin
It's the end where I begin

Now I'm alive
and my ghosts are gone
I've shed all the pain
I've been holding on
The cure for a heart
Is to move along, is to move along
So move along

What don't kill a heart
Only makes it strong


This text is from the song by The Script - The end where I begin.
I couldn't say it any better. The song says: The cure for a heart is to move along...
My heart is cured and whole. And today bigger and stronger than it ever has been.

Kids!!!!!!!!

To my neighbours the good parents: Couldn't you find something better for your kids to occupy themselves while you ignore the persons YOU brought to life? Did you have to let them play with the doors and jump in the stairway? And I'd also like to mention that you really didn't teach them well enough to sing. It's hurting my ears when they shout outside my door. COME ON!!!
And another thing, why do you go out in the stairway to comfort your crying child? Why don't you take her in your arms and go INSIDE YOUR HOME?!?!?!? Why ..................

The day so far

Pasta drowned in tomato sauce which I've been boiling for a whole hour with 2 garlic pieces, so we are for sure going to smell supersexy the rest of the day.. I also chopped up the left-over chicken from yesterday and let it slide down into the sauce. Too bad we don't have basil at home, that would be such a great combination. Pasta, chicken/basil/tomato/garlic sauce. Yummi! But I don't expect us to feel so full after this lunch, but I made some extra sallad so I hope that'll be enough.

I've been taking it kind of easy today but still finished lots of things. Sweeping, mopping, laundry, dishes, cooking, blog and reading some blogs. And it's no even 1 oclock!

Iam going to continue now reading the blogs(not done yet), drink my strawberry/mango juice and then it's lunch time! Ye, I had to pour some juice up my belly was screaming for something. So in the choice between juice and kitkat, the juice won. At least today!

It's how I arrange my mind

A 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud man, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with his hair fashionably combed and shaved perfectly, even though he is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today.

His wife of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary. After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, he smiled sweetly when told his room was ready.

As he maneuvered his walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of his tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on his window.

‘I love it,’ he stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new toy.

‘Mr. Jones, you haven’t seen the room; just wait.’

‘That doesn’t have anything to do with it,’ he replied. ‘Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged … It’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it.
‘It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open, I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away…. just for this time in my life’.

Old age is like a bank account. You withdraw from what you’ve put in.

So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories! Thank you for your part in filling my ‘Memory Bank’. I am still depositing.

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less.

So healthy!

Milk and special cereals for breakfast. I remember when I tried to eat them for more than 6 months ago. I thought they tasted like cardboard, not that I have ever tasted one but my imagenation is good. And I know they still taste the same, but you get used to it. I hear they are healthy so I'll keep eating them.

I'm doing some laundry. The bathroom carpet is placed in a big bowl soaked with water and detergent and is waiting for its turn in the washing machine. I'll try to make it clean or else it should go meet with the other dirty things in the garbage container in the street. Why do you produce white bathroom carpets, or white carpets at all??? A stupid idea. Nothing mentioned about the people who buy those....

It's 10 o'clock and the chicken is lying for thaw(found it in the dictionary but I don't know how to use the word)
Dinner will be chicken and my "famous" potato and sallad. We still don't have any rice. Mmmmm I miss eating rice, it's my favorite. I want to make chickensoup(yes I have to have rice in it) and I want to cook normal ordinary yummi rice. Oooooh how much I love rice, it's ridiculous. But the love for rice only goes to Basmati. Okey and sometimes jasmin rice is acceptable too. But basmati rice is preferable.

It feels as if this is going to be a pretty good day. Iam feeling relatively alert and I would like to take the curtains down for washing. But they are put so highly and I can't reach without standing on some high chair/ladder, which we don't have.

Hope you all will have a nice day inshallah!

Thoughts on a Monday afternoon

****** my post disappeared due to fail of connection..........................

Well, I was just saying I'm waiting to eat lunch. I'm pretty hungry :D About an hour ago I finished cleaning. Almost usual time even if I fell asleep on the sofa just after breakfast. I was so tired, I guess I needed some extra rest. It's fine, I know the reason of the tiredness :)

Do you realize it's already November??? And that the year of 2009 almost has come to its' end??? Subhanallah time flies by! Well not always, only when you're busy with doing things and not just sitting around doing nothing waiting for life to happen...... Hamdella

hairstyle *sigh*

buy:
PJ
more clothes

I miss:::
jogging

Lunch is waiting

To get eaten.

Pasta and meat sauce with parsley + sallad, is on the menu today. And OJ to that, have to refill my iron levels. Parsley (contains lots of iron) and OJ with Vitamin C which makes it easier for the body to consume(?) the iron.

Aotch, I hate the "first days". I love that those only comes once a month.

I only did a quick cleaning up today, put the laundry away, did the dishes, cooked and now waiting to eat. Later in the afternoon I'll freshen up. I guess that's enough for the day. I'm not feeling great.........

Everyday

Morning: Nescafe 3 in 1, I feel more alert after it, don't know if it's my imagenation or the caffeine, all I care about is getting alert ;)
Evening: Tea

Sunday

So ye, I haven't had the time to blog for some days. I think you can stop expecting me to do that, I just don't have time and nothing special to blog about.

The last couple of days we have been doing this:
waking up late
biking
BBQ
shopping(tops, shoes and jeans for me yey)
cleaning/laundry/cooking etc

Well I have to go.. Have to fix some lunch, have no idea what to dooooooooo!!!!
