Having said all that, I am instantly struck by writer's block and have no clue what to tell you next.
(Imagine a long pause here)
After asking my sister and my favorite aunt for advice and giving it a long hard thought, I called the Exfactor last night. I said, "If you and I are going to be friends, there are going to have to be some strict rules," and he answered, "Absolutely, I couldn't agree with you more."
So, here's the deal.
- We don't discuss our personal and intimate lives with each other. We don't need to know what the other one does in his/her spare time.
- Our friendship is autonomous, it has little to do with our shared past or with the people around us.
- It is spontaneous, as real friendships are, without a hidden agenda.
- We can call on each other for help whenever we feel the need, as long as it is within the other person's power to provide that help.
There, enough said about that. We'll see where it leads us.

One thing I absolutely have to do today is grocery shop. Yesterday I stopped by the little shop around the corner for some milk, but it is almost gone again. That's a handy little shop, but it is expensive to shop there. The first thing you see when you walk in there are chocolate covered biscuits, which is very tempting, of course.
Good news on the financial front. I got more money from the Tax Office, because they apparently thought my subsidies had been calculated too low. Can you imagine that? I put the money in my savings account just in case they say it is a mistake and I have to pay it back. I am still waiting for the letter with the most current decision in it. Does the one hand know what the other is doing? For now I will believe that my financial fortunes have taken a turn for the better. Something may be rotten in Denmark though, well, in this case that would be Iceland.
I think I'll go to the supermarket now and be one of their first customers. It will be nice to shop when it is not so busy yet. I've got my shopping list all ready to go.
Right, have yourself a nice day and pray for no rain! At least not while I'm out on my bike.
