Yes, I am aware that it’s Monday. Yawn!
Yesterday didn’t quite go as expected but we did all walk to the voting place together and the boy voted in person for the first time ever. It was more crowded than we expected but then we usually tend to go there somewhat earlier.
We decided not to tackle the printer repair after all because the boy needed to print stuff out for his exam and we didn’t want to risk breaking the only one in the house on a Sunday.
Lunch was delicious:
Afterwards the boy was really talkative. We are all concerned because of the ugly Palestine stuff. And the elections.
I sat and read and played games for too long, did the dishes and finally went to the studio around 5. Before that I finally got the boy to sit down with me to fill out all the forms so he can get the student Deutschland ticket. We knew that he would have to make a new account, download a new app and fill out a form to prove that he is indeed a student and we did all those things but, surprise!, the approval will take several days. Who would have thought?
Well, me. I would have thought. And I pestered him about the ticket application for weeks. And now all my pestering resulted in him almost going to uni without a ticket, and also in me having to buy a different ticket for that not to happen. I ended up buying an electronic ticket on my phone for him and sending him a screen shot. We’ll see how that holds up. I think it should be fine, his name is on the ticket and he does have the QR-code that they need to scan but still.
Anyways, I spent about two hours sorting and winding and weighing and cataloguing acrylic and there was still a lot left. All the purples and browns are still to be done. I packed the balls I was finished with away, left the ball winder out and have now two somewhat tidy piles of yarn that I still need to go to on top of my desk. On Friday a student asked me if I had received a big yarn delivery. Um, no. That is actually all leftovers. The yarn delivery will arrive soon. I hope. Who knows how long the Royal Mail will take…
After that I had dinner, talked with the rest of the family, who were in and out of the kitchen every other minute, telling me about politics, finally planned out the week (another slightly crazy one), did all the Chinese, watched an episode of „Storm Eye“ which I’m still liking, especially since it’s a spy series with a slower pacing, knitted for a bit and then just – sat there.
The plan had been to go to bed around 10 at the latest because I needed to get up so early but in the end I turned the lights out at – 12.30. Oh, and had another beer and ate all the nuts and all the cheese…
I had hoped to do all the things in the morning after waking the boy up at 5.30 but I just didn’t. So today might end up a little hectic, very tired and very long.
