a few weeks ago a visited mexico on a short business trip. this was just before the flu outbreak hit the media. i came back with a cold. no, it wasn’t the swine flu, just an ordinary cold. i already had a fever when i arrived in mexico city airport. anyway, due to the cold, i hadn’t really the energy to do much while i was there apart from work. but i went for a short walk to find the post office. and on my way i happened upon a yarn shop! they carried mostly acrylic yarn, but i did find a nice soft cotton yarn. i don’t know what i’ll do with it, but that’s ok, i bought it mostly as a souvenire.
and now for something completely different…
i just have to show you what stefan gave me the other day: a bed tray with E.T. on it! isn’t it wonderful?! i love it!
when i was at home from work with the cold, stefan felt sorry for me because i had no place to put my mug of tea when i was reading or watching tv in bed. so he tried to find a nice bed tray. apparently, bed trays are really ugly, and after days of searching the internet, he found this second hand, “vintage”, object. lucky me, because i just love E.T.! it’s one of my favourite movies. i even bought a red hoodie many years ago like the one eliott wears in the movie.
