There's a new toy in our apartment!

And this time it is mine. :)

I've been toying with the idea of buying a tiny tiny laptop for quite some time now - I guess ever since I first saw a itty bitty 12.1" some 6 years ago or something like it. And last Friday I could finally pick up my new little toy from the post office. :)

I tried to find something most people out there in the blogiverse could relate to, in comparison to size I mean, and I think that most of you know approximetly the size of a jelly roll. :) This is how it looks like when it's closed - shiny and glossy, the finish is the same kind of finish as on a piano (black, with tiny tiny pieces of silvery glitter) - about the size of two jelly rolls.

Open, it looks a little different (the screen looks strange, most because I still haven't removed the protective sheet yet). Gor-ge-ous! I just have to pat it a little every time I pass by it. :)

These are the latest projects ready to be started - the 6th and final stitchery from Jordbærstedet and block no. 8 of the Truly Scrumptious. Yep, on a roll there - going through one block in about a week and a half or something like it. What can I say? I'm hooked..

These are the latest three swap blocks I've received - now I have 7, but I should've had 8.. Strange.. I hope to receive the last one soon (but I'm not really in a rush, yet, I have no idea how to put the blocks together, or how to make my own..).

Well, I'm off to bed. Got alot of things going on at work these days - spending quite alot of time extra there, overtime, stress, messy things, and whatnots. I hope things calm down soon..

Until next time - take care and have an ice cream. ;)
