I did not feel well (headache) and thought the best way to solve that
would be to stay at home today, sleep long and take everything easy...
Well, I really slept in - until 1pm!
And I did everything very slowly.
And the best is - i am feeling much better now.
I wraped the last Christmas parcel.
And did a bit of washing
and bought some things for the dessert
I will have to make tomorrow.
Family Christmas in the Hunsrück.
Great meals, fun, family, there is nothing better...

nice stuff, too. And they offered me an expresso for free!
The third was a must.
I love the pics made by Sam Flowers, so I had to visit the
exhibition at Orike Muth.
It is a bit tricky to find. First time I had a bit trouble searching for the entrance.
This year I knew what I was looking for.
And I was not disappointed.
They have really great stuff.

My old aunts speek mostly about their health issues.
Well, that is the theme here at this side,too.
Just after I felt better and went to work again on friday
I had my annual Doc appointment.
I need to get each year my skin checked for cancer.
Nothing that hurts. The doc just looks at your skin.
Well, Doc saw two pieces that needed to be cut out.
I decided to get it done ensuite.
So I live now with yarn in my body for the next two weeks.
Thanks God I know the procedere coz it is the third time
I had to get two pieces cut out. In two weeks I will get the results.
And in three weeks I will go into the hospital to get it checked if
they are able to operate my myom.

It is easy to find good stores in the net. For nice shopes in real life it is a bit more difficult coz the shops I loved have died over the years. What came now as something to replace the old fashioned nice stores are short-term-possibilities with exhibitions and the chance to buy great things.
This year there are two places in Hannover to go for shopping special things before Christmas:
One is the designachten. It starts the first time so we have to see if it will be great or not.
The other one is well known. It is the "Werkstatt-Ausstellung" bei Orike Muth. Do not miss it. It is a bit hard to find but worth the effort (17.12.: 17.00-20.00Uhr; 18.+19.12.: 11.00-20.00 Uhr).
I had to stay in bed for nearly two days now. Sleeping.
Could think about something better to do.
Well, my body decided that sleep was needed.
It still hurts, but I got up now.
Slowly brewing some hot tea.
Everything takes such an amount of time.

A rainy dark day in Hannover. Late in the afternoon and me
hungry searching for something hot to eat.
I had missed lunch and nothing in my fridge.
So out into the streets for searching a nice restaurant.
I went to the Limmerstraße. It is a nice street with
shops in the northern part of Linden. And I decided I
wanted a meal with fresh veggies and spieces.
It is crazy how you have sometines only to decide what you wish and it appears.
I found the Street Kitchen, a nice restaurant with viet cuisine.
I decided to take the daily choice of chicken and wow-
see what I got for 5,-- €:

I read on a great blog about a book written by Alice Miller and decided to buy it. It is the german version and called "Die Revolte des Körpers" and I got it today. I want to start reading now so goodbye for today...

For me it is hard to give and receive thanks to my parents.
I still remember being told to be nice and give one of the blouses my parents bought for me (as presents for my birthday some weeks later) to my older sister coz she liked them so much and other humilating things related to gifts. And to getting gifts: I will never forget my parents wanting so much praise for something they had done for me I did not like their gift at all.
It took me a long time to give without a special occasion and without wanting something in return.
I started to do this some years ago: I sent postcards each week to my sister and a friend.
Both without an occasion - both without wanting something in return. I really like choosing the cards and sending them. And sometimes I send postcards to other people, too.
And today I decided to send a friend a bag I made- just out of the blue...
Today I went to work again and got a headache only later in the day.
I hate it when my body does slow me down.
I went to the local bookstore to browse the shelves after work. I found a great book and decided to check the webside today.

I went to therapy and read a lot of self-help books.
Why did I need all this?
I can only guess, but I think it has something to do with the genes I inherited and with my upbringing. I can not change the genes I inherited so all I can change is the behaviour and the believings I learned during my childhood.
I believe my parents wanted the best for me but they were not able to do the best. Nothing spectacular but I was not able to live my life in a good way.
And I still struggle a lot.
Therapy is a great way to learn more about yourself. It may be hard to find a good therapist but it is worth the search.
For good self-help books I highly recommend the books written by Martha Beck. She writes funny and the books are easy to follow. And a good workbook is "The Happiness Trap:Stop Struggling, Start Living" by Russ Harris.
