I've gotten pretty good at being sick. But that doesn't mean it doesn't utterly suck at times.
The sun is shining through our windows, the kitten lady is fast asleep besides me on the couch, my iPhone plays me a pretty song and I'm enjoying a cup of coffee. As long as I don't get up I'll be fine.
But I can't just sit here all day now can I? And when I get up I'm reminded of how it is to be me with my ME/CFS diagnosis when I'm having a bad day. I can't really stand straight, I'm so dizzy I feel like I'm constantly falling, I have to hold onto something, it's a good thing I bought myself a pair of crutches for days like this. My hands are shaking, and I'm freezing even though it's warm, my eyes won't focus properly.
It's funny how it goes, on a day that could just suck, people are there and make it better. My sister called me, my mom stopped by, I talked to my brother on the phone too and even my darling Malene ringed me up ♥
All in all, even though I'm sick, I'm a pretty lucky girl.
As usual I celebrated my birthday with my amazing friends ♥
And a pile of balloons, a bit of alcohol for me and waaaay to much for everyone else, some potato chips and a lot of fun.
I had managed to invite 20 people before the party had to be moved to Malene and Øystein's apartment so there was barely enough room for all. Luckily the birthday girl gets to sit were-ever she wants! Amazingly enough we managed to shoot my 12gb memory card completely full of pictures, that's quite the editing job I've got in front of me, haha.
I've often wished I was a ballet dancer, but the closest thing I got was Jazz Ballet lessons when I was a kid. So with a bit of movie inspiration I made my costume out of feathers and tulle.
Thrifty finds with feline friends. And also longest title ever, but it was just so cute I couldn't cut it down, haha.
Nicoline liked the new stuff, but she LOVED the paper it came wrapped in! Perfect for tearing apart.
I went with my mom and aunt to some thrift shops this weekend. I found some beautiful white coffee cups and matching plates, a bizarre girl plant pot, two white vases, a little white porcelain bird, several crochet tablecloths and three awesome vintage bags ♥
I bought these white feathers for a costume I'm making for my birthday karneval party. That word would be carnival in English, but we've made our own traditionout of it here in Norway, so I'll just use the Norweigan word.
To us up here going to a karneval party means you can basically wear whatever costume you want, no rules, just a fun costume party ♥ February, is here and it's the month for karneval and since my birthday is in February I've been having karneval birthdays parties since I was a kid.
If you're friends with me on Instagram (maritabliss) you've already seen the finished costume ;)
