Hi all! Remember when I said my operation would be on 15th? Does it seem like I’m at the hospital right now? No sir, it doesn’t…
On my pre-operation check-up on 5th, after meeting the anesthesia doctor and nurse, I walked into the surgeon’s office. We exchanged some polite words and then he said: “I’ve been summoned to testify in court. Guess which date?”
My eyes did this:

And I was quiet for a very, VERY long time. The quietness lasted so long that it went from normal pause to awkward to “there’s going to be some serious butt-whooping going on if something doesn’t get done right”. I got re-scheduled to 5th of February. Which is cool because that’s when the killer winter temperatures usually kick in and you couldn’t drag me out of this flat with wild horses when it’s -30c. (Except when I need chocolate. Ooh, the things I have done for chocolate).
I was feeling depressed for a week about this because I’d been mentally preparing myself for the 15th and had made plans accordingly. When I got out of my funk, I began getting things ready for the 5th. First order of business was getting some safe shoes to walk in and outdoors. And that of course meant getting:
The HORROR! Doom! There’s no recovering from this! I had to get Crocs. CROCS! My friend said on Facebook that I should be whipped and not in a 50 Shades of Grey kind of way.
But they are comfortable. Perfect for my recovery period. Then it will already be spring and I will be able to walk in other, non-Crocs shoes. But boy, are these comfortable. I’ve been wearing the outdoor shoes indoors for over an hour now. I paid 90 euros for two pairs of shoes which is a total bargain compared to the other safe and comfy shoes I had my eyes on. They were 200 euros a pair. See, I managed to live up to my bloggy name!
Anyhoo, since my shoe shopping was so traumatizing, I decided to smooth my bruised design ego by getting some crafty supplies. Craft Gossip recently linked to a fabulous digital scrapbooking store called Pixels and Company. They have these fantastic 1$ sales AND freebies so I decided to have a look. For 3$/2.25€ I got three fabulous paper sets and then I got three freebies too! Check these babies out:
So pretty. 3 different designers with their own distinctive style. I’m especially keen on the plaid on Scarlett, autumn hues on Autumn Delight and those watercolour florals on In Bloom. All this for 3$! Then from the freebies section I chose:
Those date caps are awesome. I just saw in some crafty blog a picture from CHA where some company had bottle cap embellishments in their line. The Daydream set I got because of the houndstooth and Reindeer Games…See that interesting herringbone-style pattern with the yellow snowflakes next to it? So nice and design-y.
So this is what I’ve been up to. How’s your week been?
