I have been busy playing The Secret World, packing moving boxes and writing papers lately. And I still am. But I have taken a break in the computer gaming since I have a life to take care of :( I have a paper to tackle today, and hope to be moved in to the new apartment by the end of next week so I can spend 24/7 on mmorpg playing and letter writing after that. :)
This is me killing a Necrotic Mutation.
DIE MONSTER DIE! GO BACK TO HELL! *slams keyboard and jumps up and down*
I have also spent some time on a more productive hobby: crocheting! These are some of the granny squares for the quilt I’m planning to decorate or new home with. I think I will make 9×10 squares, and I have 73 squares now so I am soon there! (And yes, all squares are different. It’s going to be a wonderful explosion of colours! :D )
I also got some mail photos for you guys! This is a beautiful incoming church postcard for me and Thomas from his sister Cathrin and her husband.
And I also got a letter from Maude in France. She made me a bookmark! I never have bookmarks enough :D Thank you! Oh, and I love the stamps she used for the envelope.
Yesterday I visited the university library to find some books I need for an archaeology paper. I didn’t find all the books, but I found out that they sell pretty postcards so I had to buy a bunch :D These are going out to Aiko in Japan, Julie in Canada and Barbara in Germany with my new address.
This very green thing is going out to Denise in the US soon. (The postal worker I spoke with yesterday didn’t know what kind of customs declaration thingy I needed….)
I have been absent from blogging and letter writing lately, and this picture sums up why; I have had papers to write (still have) and I just started playing The Secret World. And when I start playing an mmorpg my life kind of… disappears in the background somewhere. Is any of you dear readers playing this superb game too?
Today I started packing the first boxes for our move to the new(er) apartment! Wohoo! The moving business will most likely take up a lot of my time the coming two or three weeks, but I will try to sit down and write a letter or two soon. Hopefully I can save the letter sets and washi tapes from the packing for a few more days.
But I have received some mail I’d like to show you guys! Let your eyes feast upon these pretty incoming pieces:
Anni in Finland sent me this whole pile of wonderfulness in the LEP diary swap. Thank you so much! Your bribes have not gone unnoticed ;)
A lovely and long letter from Maaike in The Netherlands!
(Sorry for the pink cloud, I had to format my computer and now photoshop is missing so I had to work some paint magic)
A very fun and interesting letter from Julie in the US. I love the mailart!
Dear Denise in the US sent me some cherry licorice! :O It was yummy and now it’s gone for ever. And today I got this beautiful postcard from her as well. Don’t worry Denise, I will not cross the mythological beast! I am sure we will become the best of friends :D
