What do the three of these items have in common? They are things that pertained to my weekend.
First, 'little christmas' in Finnish is pikkujoulu and it is what all the holiday parties are called before xmas. My work has their pikkujoulu mid-November and I was just planning on wearing the same little black dress that I wore last year, except I'd change the belt and tights. And if I didn't feel like wearing that, I always have the black floor length skirt from my wedding dress. But I'd need to find a top for it. I was in major luck on Saturday though. I went to the near by second had store (as if I really needed to be going there when I'd just managed to get rid of a bunch of stuff, that is besides the point) and found a very cute and stylish black dress for 1€. That's right, one euro for a cute dress and it fits!
What I didn't mention, especially to Mr Siili, was that the front driver tire that got punctured by a screw this summer hasn't been holding its pressure to well lately. Hence another reason I was so eager to get my tires swapped. Also, Lydia is my car and my responsibility and Mr Siili wants nothing to do with it, but if he has to do something with it, I never hear the end of it. So, I knew that by getting new tires (without his help or knowledge), setting up to get them swapped (even though he did come for the journey and helped. I love him!) would get me brownie points. *big grin* And it was only as we were changing the tires, that I told his father about the leaky tire. *bigger grin* I'll be buying new summer tires come spring...
All in all, it was a good weekend!
