Life, New Stamps and only 5 more days until I leave :(

Been busy for the last "2 weeks" after I "quit" my job. First I slept and played videogames like a mad man  (No PS2 or PSP with me in Thailand :(), visited Fankikitsune in Lahti, got a new luggage during the same weekend (it's so pretty!! Click *HERE* :3), bought Fankikitsune's old camera (*click*) and this week.. Umm.. I have slept, woke up around 6am every morning even if I went to bed around 2am, watched Netflix, wrote letters and postcards, played with my camera and sorted out the last paperworks :) Now all I need is sunscreen and time/energy to pack :) Tomorrow I'll probably see the last people (apart from family) before I leave as I'll be going to get a coffee with my childhood friend and then eat out with ~10 coworkers :) And on Monday I'll return some last books to school and cry over the fact that I'll be leaving so soon.. Sure, I'm happy to escape the cold but people and my furbaby are left behind ;;__;; And so is my Sailor Moon schedule book from J-List unless it arrives on Monday or Tuesday :(

Anyhow, here are some pics during this week as I've been playing with my camera and learning to use it :)



my baby ;;__;;

Postcard from Lisa

Postcard from Kifia and EARLY Christmas present from Lisa

Special cancellation and stamp from Arctic Circle, Santa's post office ;;__;; LOVE IT!

Present from Lisa, I bought the mascara and powder (made her go look for those xD and only paid 8€ in total!! Love the prices in Germany.) 4 different teas NOT available in Finland, Rapunzel figure for Disney Infinity (I don't have it but now I have a reason to purchase ;D), Rubintrot/Rubyred movie and Belle & Boo mug!! ;;__;; LOVE everything I got!

and a Frozen letter to Emma
When my desk was cleanER.. Checking Billboard Hot 100 ;)

I think it was snowing (or hailing) a bit on Tuesday..

This morning :3
The most important things to pack. Don't think I will learn Thai but I'll at least TRY to learn..
And to the new stamps that were published yesterday but I only received today because our mail lady doesn't like me or my mail anymore :( Even Lisa's present and Kifia's postcard took AGES to arrive :(

Christmas stamps, International and national :)

Arjen Muutos stamps.. Part of the many stamp sets published before our 100th year of independence in 2017

And 10 bridges!! The middle-left (I THINK) one is from Porvoo :3 Sikosaaren silta :3

    1. Thanks :D I have a package waiting to be sent to you (unfortunately the letter isn't ready yet) so I bet I could use those Christmas stamps on the package :DD Will try to send it tomorrow or on Monday :3 Not so keen on the stamp sets for our independence. Left last year's school stamps to the post because I found those boring D:

      Thanks! I was so lucky that he was tired and bored so he didn't move while I was trying to find the right settings :DD

    2. Cool .) A package for me? Kiitos :) That would be great with the christmas stamps :)
      I wonder what christmas stamps we'll get this year (if any)...I don't think they are released yet...
      What do you mean that you left last year's stamp to the post? Do you have like subscribed or something to get new stamps..and get some of each of the new stamps delivered to your house? Or did you see them at the post office and didn't buy any?

      Aww...cool :) maybe he also thought, he'd give you time to try out the different settings :) Sometimes cats seem to sense such things...

      And now it's not too long anymore till you leave to Thailand...so (again) have a great and safe trip to there and a really great time there :)

    3. Hope you will get the package soon! :) I also hope that you will get a Christmas stamp in Germany! Those are usually AMAZING! :D
      I just didn't get it :) I don't have a stamp ordering going on but I definitely should! Maybe when I get back to Finland and work and FINALLY graduate! :D

      Luckily he did do that :) During the morning I left he didn't really like being cuddled so I was a bit sad :D And when we had a skype chat with dad last night he was looking around, trying to find the source of my voice :D

      Thank you<3 I'm pretty much already settled in :) Know what the closest stores have and where the fresh market is :D Had a yummy fresh mango for breakfast for 1€ (I chose the mango, they peeled and sliced it AND gave it to me on a plate that was wrapped in plastic! It took a while and was a bit expensive compared to the prices I've seen before in here.. For example a package of toilet paper was cheaper than that mango :D But I am really bad at trying to talk the prices down :/ Not possible in Finland..

  3. Hyvää reissua!! Muakin on alkanut jänskättää toi lähteminen, tosin Espanja ei oo kyllä MITÄÄN verrattuna Thaimaahan! Toivottavasti kaikki menee hyvin! :)

    Ja JÄTTIKIITOKSET Britannia-kortista! ^^ Ihana yllätys!
    Laita sitten osoitetta, mihin sulle voi kirjoitella ulkomailla ollessasi (vai haluatko edes postia sinne? Itse oon ajatellut jättää osoitteen Suomeen ja pitää postitaukoa sen +3kk, ettei tartte sit tullessa täyttää laukkua postilla). :)

    1. Kiitos<3 Onnea sullekin! :D Itellä on alkanu olla sellanen fiilis että ehkä Espanja olis ollu parempi vaihtoehto niin Suomikin olis vaan muutaman tunnin lentomatkan päässä jos jotain tapahtuis eikä matkaan menis vähintään 12 tuntia :)

      Ole hyvä! :D Korteista ja merkeistä kun pitää aika hyvin päästä eroon että ne mahtuu muutamaan pahvilaatikkoon niin oli kivaa laitella kortteja matkaan :)
      TOIVON että saisin postia sinne, 5,5 kuukautta olisi kuitenkin AIKA pitkä tauko, vaikka otankin muutaman pitkän kirjeen mukaan joihiin pitää vastata.. Laitan osotetta tulemaan jos vaan saan sen postilokeron :) Jos en niin kaveri on tulossa joulun alla vierailulle niin postia saa pahimmassa tapauksessa ainakin sitä kautta :D Mutta 31.päivä alkaa iso postilokeron metsästäminen!! Onneksi kaupungissa on ainakin 3 postitoimistoa ja kaikissa voi käydä kyselemässä :D
