Oldies

My mom has ordered things from a mailorder company. They focuses mostly on older people. Cause she’s ordered from this company they send her their catalogue all the time. I always laugh when I read the catalogue because it’s crazy.

This is the kind of clothes they sell. Clothes for mature women.

They sell clothes but they also have practical items. Look at the couple in the catalogue. They are walking outside in pyjamases! The text to that picture is that this company sell things to make you enjoy the things you always have enjoyed. “If you used to wear pyjamas all day we make it possible for you to keep doing it.” It doesn’t say that but that picture together with “we sell you convenient things” makes you think that.

The craziest thing is all the vibrators they sell. Lots! But that goes along perfectly with the pyjamas couple!

 

Vacations

Voff and hi from Kajsa and me. We`ve had a long vacation. We haven`t done many things but we`ve relaxed. This summer was the coldest for a while but that`s a good summer to me. I sweat easy and when it`s warm outside it`s a sweat fest. Not a fest exactly but you know what I mean.

We were thinking about doing some travelling this summer but we didn`t. I think the best vacation is to do nothing. Boring to some but I love it. The one thing I would love to do is to rent a boat with my mom. Not because I love boats but the thought of me and my mom on a boat is crazy. My mom would fall overboard all the time and neither one of us know how to ride a boat. We would have to sleep in the same room, or what it`s called, and Kajsa would get hysterical in the tiny space between us in the bed. When I was younger we had a boat but that was different then. Now when we`re both old and haven`t even seen a boat for years it would get out of control.

Take care for now.

 

 

 

 

 

Mental vacation

I had to take a mental vacation for a while. I was very tired and had to take a break from everything. I don`t feel better but my mental state is stronger. I haven`t done a lot and that is what mental vacation is. Not doing anything.

Kajsa always helps me when I feel depressed. Animals have that sense of knowing when you feel bad. She is my best friend and loves me for me. I can get these anxiety “attacks” and when I hug her they disappear.

Dogs are the best. They make you laugh. Everyone should be the way dogs are. For example they don`t dwell on everything like we do. I remember when we had a pie on the balcony. It was there to cool down after it had been baked. The balcony door was open and Kajsa went out and ate from it. She must have thought “How nice of you to make this for me. I was hungry.” Not wondering why the pie was there. Kajsa never gorges on food and she must have taken some of the pie chewed on it and then taken even more. Not a worry in the world! Not feeling stressed to eat the whole pie before we would find her.

Love her.

Give me pie.

 

 

Ancient

I remember when I grew up. Everything was easier. Gather around and I will tell you about ancient history. Haha not quite but almost.

We didn`t have cell phones when I grew up. That has to be the biggest difference to now. Today no one could live without it. When I was young you had to actually interract with people. You used your phone to call people! We never texted each other or played games on it. I don`t know how we made it without cell phones. As teenagers we were out all the time and partied on weekends. Sometimes you were going to a party and were supposed to meet your friends at a certain place. If you knew you couldn`t make it in time there was no one to call because they were all waiting at the meeting place. If you were a naughty girl that wasn`t coming home after a party in town you had to find a pay phone to call home. I don`t know how many times I spend the end of the night looking for a phone to call my mom (haha most of the time we went to an after party but we never said that) . When you found a phone you had to have coins to put in it. I always said I was going to spend the night at a friend who lived alone.

In Sweden back in the days we used to serve tinned pears as dessert. Not only pears but oven baked with a thin mint chocolate piece on top. The chocolate (After eight) was something you only ate at special occasions such as dinner parties. We also ate lots of homemade pizza`s with ketchup on them. My favorite food used to be boiled artichoke dipped in butter.

In school we didn`t have computer science. We had type writing classes. Most of the type writers were manual ones where you had to use force to be able to push down the keys. You had to fight to get the electric machines which were easier to use. Then we had to write these stupid texts which didn`t mean anything.

Speaking of cell phones. I remember when they became an household item. I said I would never get one. Being available all the time!

You couldn`t pick your own candy back then. You had to say to the sales person what candy to put in the paper bag.
