My Autistic Life … my journey each day | Life is like a blog, everyday you write a new story

Holidays are coming, Holidays are coming, Holidays are coming

Everyone knows this iconic song from the Coca-Cola Christmas truck. The really cute Santa Claus on the truck, the lights when the truck drives in the dark. As a kid I really loved those Coca-Cola adds in wintertime.

I always wished to see this truck in real life, but I never had the chance to. All those events were so far away and always in the late evenings (on schooldays!).

Today I had a day of, and I was lucky that December 14, was the day that this Christmas truck had a stop in Leuven. Leuven is a city here in the area.

Like always this autistic girl was way to early there. So I had the time to take some pictures of the truck, and be the first in line for the Elfs treat and I had no line to meet Santa.

Here are some pictures of my great afternoon in Leuven.

I met SANTA CLAUS

Like a said it was a great day, meeting Santa and I got a carboard truck with 2 cans of Coca-Cola (a regular and a Zero).  Nice surprice for this Coca-Cola addict !

Have a magical Holiday week !

Love Lucy xx

Sorry, so sorry that I couldn’t write my yesterday’s blog ! It was a long workday (sold a lot of shoes) and I had (still have) a very terrible toothache. 

What will I watch the upcoming week?

Most of you bloggers are having a top 10 with favorite things to watch this christmas season.  I also have a top list of things I have to watch this Holiday season.

I’m not that girl that goes to a theater to watch the big movies that are coming out ! So here no Star Wars movie on my list, or others. I really like movies I can watch at home, in a quiet place where I don’t have to be stress with all the sounds of drinks and popcorn of others.

Ready? Let’s found out which one.

# 1 A Wish for Christmas

This movie I really want to see again, really loved it last year. I’m a big fan of Lacey Chabert.

# 2 A Christmas Prince

For this one, I’m not that enthousiast. I just want to see it because everybody is talking about it. I’ll let you know how it was.

# 3 Every Christmas has a story

I started watching this movie a few weeks ago, but I fell asleep. So this is one thing on my list to see, and see the whole movie in one time.

In Full House and now Fuller House I always liked Lori, since I was a kid and I saw here the first time. So this movie I can’t miss this season.

# 4 Olaf’s Frozen Adventure … oh and Frozen

Now with all the commotion about the part of Frozen before the movie Coco, I really want to see this Frozen Adventure. Sorry, but I just can’t spend 9 EUR for a movie where I get nuts of all the noices and I only want to see the Frozen part. Coco is something I want to watch for the first time at home.

Next Saturday the 23th, a television station here in Belgium will show Olaf’s Frozen Adventure on TV. So I can record this and watch it when I’m alone or just maybe watch it when it’s showing that evening.

After the Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, this tv station will also show the original Frozen movie. I also recorded this one, for when I’m alone here, my other family will not be happy when Frozen will play.

And the ONE thing I REALLY REALLY want to see the upcoming week is

Fuller House

The last thing I want to watch the upcoming week, well Friday the 22 December!  I have a day off, so I hope it’s on Netflix in the morning here so I can watch this all day long in PJ’s. Would be nice to relax, drink hot cocoa and eat some waffles and watch Fuller House.

I watch every episode when I was a kid, was a hugh fan of Lori (Becky). Even when I couldn’t speak English, I could say some quotes from the episode by heart. Very strange, but that’s maybe my autistic part.

Unfortually I lost that. When I see a movie or follow a show on Netflix I always forget it, or I forget the important stuff so I have to re-watch a half episode before playing the next one.

But for now … I can’t wait to watch FULLER HOUSE !!!!

Finding a way to get this pain to end

It’s a short blogmas today … Any guess Why? Oh Yess ! I’m having terrible pain again

Today I had a long workday because the PRE christmas sale started in out store. Long day of putting discount tags to the boxes. After all I had a great day.

Till..

I came home! At work I got a little headache the last hour I had to work.

Around 7pm I came home from work, made me a healthy spinach pizza (just a tortilla with tomatosauce, spinach and cheese in the oven).

Today’s goal, the one thing I had planned to do after work … failed!

I wanted to draw a christmas Figment, but I just couldn’t!

I Only had 4 lines and the beginneling of the ears on my paper till my hands gave up. Not even 5 minutes of holding my pencil in my hands 😱 *crying*

Feels like I have to give up So many things

As the result of my autism I had to give up So many things. And now because of the pain in whole my body I have to give up drawning. This is soooooo bad!

New years list …

First thing on my new years list, things to do in 2018 Will be …

Finding Something to stop these pain. Finding a new doctor, going to the hospital, etc I don’t care ! This just have to stop ! I want to live a pain free life or a less painfull one !

Figment

Maybe you’ll think now ” who’s Figment?”

Well it’s the little dragon from Walt Disney World in Florida. A place I love and I just love this dragon.

Here he is…

Tomorrow I had a day of, but I have to go to work the whole day aswel. Guess I have to find Some sleep on thursday!

Love Lucy xx

” I’m 32 years old but most of the time I feel like 82! “

Okay, this was the quote for today ! Such a painfull day, so much pain again!

Goodmorning!

I woke up this morning at 8am, but I couldn’t get out of my bed. It needed more time, like always, but today I needed 1h15 to get out of bed. It was 9.15am, till I got up and was able to get some breakfast.

All day I can eat this healthy food I want, but for breakfast I always need sugary things.

My plan after breakfast … I went back to bed for another hour. I had no idea that I could do stuff today.

Snow, snow and more snow

Yesterday the snow melted all, and this morning it was snowing hard again. In just a few hours it was all white and dangerous outside.

Around 13pm I went outside to take a walk in the snow and take some pictures of the snow around us. It’s so magic all the snow outside on the trees.

Once outside it was like the cold wind has frozen my muscle pains. Once inside again I needed to go to bed.

Here are some pictures of the magical snow…

Sorry … it was a NO make-up monday today (and I had so much pain I could not hold my brushes this morning 😥 ) 

Cat paws in the snow

IMG_5765

Some paws I’ve seen today are so strange, like always cat’s don’t have a good direction to follow. Left, right, oh no left again.
I wish I had pictures of my cats in the first snow but they don’t like snow ! 

Old Timberland boots are the best EVER !

Time to bake some … waffles

Oh yess, I’m belgian so waffles are the best here! I really like to bake healthy waffles I can eat for lunch or breakfast. Today I ate some for diner with fresh fruit, peanutbutter and maple sirup.

A few days ago I promised a friend of mine I would sell here my Mickey waffles machine, which was laying here unused for more than 4 years now. And I had to try it to make sure it still works after that long time doing nothing! It still worked !

So time for some oatmeal waffles, the best ever ! Off course I also made some heart shape waffles beside the Mickey ones.

Here are the ingredients I used

IMG_5835.JPG

And yess, that’s all you need for a great recipe for healthy waffles. Okay not vegan because of the eggs, but you can replace them.

You need :

  • 200 grams of oatmeal
  • 300 ml of rice milk
  • 2 eggs (not the biggest ones)
  • 1 tbsp of backing powder
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • 1 theespoon of vanille extract
  • coconut oil for the waffles machine

How to make them ?

  • blend the oatmeal very fine like flour
  • put the egg white in a separate bowl and mix it
  • take another bowl to put all the ingredients in (oatmeal flour, rice milk, honey, vanilla, egg yellow and baking powder)
  • Mix all those ingredients together
  • Add the egg white with a spoon
  • put on the waffle machine while the dough is resting a few minutes
  • put on the coconut oil on the machine and than the dough
  • bake the waffles till golden brown and ready

Enjoy !

Moment after the baking … PAIN

Oh yess, after I baked the waffles, all of them, it was over and out for today. I couldn’t move my arm after eating some waffles.

So here I am now, in bed trying to make todays blogpost and finish it.

It’s so unfair that I’m having all that pain and my doctor is just saying ” it’s not that bad, get over it, and wait another month”.

Last month I had to take medication for 2 months, but after taking them a month it all is getting so much worst 😥

I really feel like an 82 year old women, and not the 32 year old that should have energy to rase kids, have a fulltime job and still is going out !

I have a beautiful life now and feeling so happy (after some really bad years) but all that pain is so hard to deal with rightnow. I want to do stuff, I want to go to the Christmas marktet or just prepare a meal after a workday. But NO, after a workday I’m just dead, so dead !

Tomorrow I have to work a full day, preparing the store for the Christmas and year end sales that are coming end of this week. So tomorrow night, I will have so much pain again. Not normal, but my doctor says it’s not that bad enough grrr.

I’m ending my blog here, going to see if there’s a Chrismas movie on Netflix that I haven’t seen before.

Till tomorrow !

Love Lucy xx

A little quote to end this evening…

please never forget !

Even if you are vegan, trying to be vegan like me, or Eating meat … never forget those who work every day for all the things you can eat !

#farmersdaughter #farmers

I post this after Reading a post on Facebook, where they are talking about 10 jobs that Will disapear in the next 10 years. On the 4th place there was ‘farmers’.

I just don’t understand How we going to survive without farmers !

Love Lucy xx

Indeed the day after the big pary ! I wished I could spend it at my job, but I had a day off. So what have I been up to, the day after a long day for an autism girl???

I had sooooo much pain and had no energy

Morning

Arriving around 1.30 am this morning, oh yess it was morning again. So already here I am with blogmas part 10.

I woke up around 8.30am after beeing awake for more than 30 min. I couldn’t stand on my feet, I had to much pain on my muscles to move. So I had to stay in bed for a long time and reading all the new about the new that was coming.

After my pain was getting less I woke up and got some breakfast. Just an oatmeal chocolate milk and bread with chocolate. I was in the moode for chocolate this morning, I needed some sugar !

Plans after breakfast? Well, I went back to bed. I was feeling horrible, had a lot of pain so best plan was to get back to bed for the rest of the morning.

Afternoon

Around noon I had some time to spend with my 2 beloved cats #teddy and #blacky (blacky is the one with all the colors).

I’ve safed them from the snow outside !

When I first let them in, I guess there were singing …

Baby it’s cold outside

Oh I just love my 2 cats, can’t live without them !

OH RIGHT … THERE WAS SNOW ! THE FIRST REAL SNOW IN BELGIUM

Before noon it was snowing so much here in Belgium. It was so beautiful. Why ‘was’? Because it’s all gone sinds 2 pm this afternoon, when it started to rain 😥 So sad, I really like the snow and the cold.

Here are some pictures of our first snow

Looking at my Chirstmas tree and than seeing all the snow outsite was also so pretty. Very quiet I hope we have a white Christmas !

Getting yesterday’s stuff at work

Also this afternoon, I had to pick up my clothes at work I had wore yesterday. Other things like my black Timberland boots were also there in the kitchen of the store. But it was also great to see my colleagues again after the party of yesterday.

I also went to my favorite store here called ‘Modemakers’. For years I wanted a nice black faux leather skirt.

Always the moments you don’t have the money … all those things you’ve always wanted are for sale in store. Sor horrible. What did I did wrong? Allong with buying the skirt I got a nice big towel for free because I spent over 50 EUR. It will be THE perfect outfit with a black shirt for my workdays on Sunday when I have to wear black.

Oh yeah , there’s a budget FAILURE this moment on my budgetplanner. In one way it was good that I’m going to move in February. Guess I have to look at my budgetplanner and leave my cards at home. I’m going to take a step back from modern technology and start using cash again.

Thinks to REthink about tomorrow. Now this autism girl is ready for bed, having so much muscles pain again and headache is coming. Tomorrow I have a day of, so I’m glad I can sleep a bit longer !

Have a nice evening !

Love Lucy

Yesterday was a pretty bizzy day, and was back home well it was today. This is how my day was and what I wore that evening.

Workday

My day started with a workday at 9.15 am till 5pm. Not a long workday like every other Saturday but that was good.

It was a bizzy day at work, lot of people in store to buy winterboots. Oh yess, that’s how Belgian people think. We not buying wintershoes untill it’s cold and snowy. I guess people here are guessing that winter starts when the sales starts and that is good to send your kids to school in the snow with summer sneakers.

I always plan, plan and plan and I’m buying shoes for fall in summer time when they first arrive in store. I’m always prepared for colder weather, guess any weather 😉

The first shoes of the summer collection came last week and yesterday I also have put the last pairs of them in the store. There are some really pretty shoes for kids out now, which I shared on my facebookaccount to my friends.

It’s 5 PM

Most people were surprised that the store was going to close at 5 PM insteat of after 6PM. But hey, that one day we could go to a party together.

Between 5pm and 5.45pm I went to the store next to us to buy a black shirt. I wasn’t sure my black tee from Zara was good enough after hearing wat others were going to wear. I’m always so insecure about my own clothes :/

After that it was time to prepare for the party, to do my hair and put on my clothes. It was kind of strange to do your make-up in a shoestore.

Once I put on my whole outfit I felt so proud, even with that Zara shirt.

Time to party !

We arrived at the party at 8.30pm. It was soooo pretty inside (sorry I have no pictures to show). The time was ‘magic’ but it felt like a magical woods. I really love it.

When we arrived it was good, not a lot of people, not a lot of lights etc. When the party started and everybody showed up it was insane for this autism girl. So much noice, so much different lightning. Like an instant I had a massive headache. It was so shocking all that pain in less that half an hour 😮

The food was great, but I couldn’t eat much because of the pain.

After eating it was time to dance, so I did. A BIG surprise for me, that I (yeah MEEEE) danced for a few hours ! I never did that. So I danced with a lot of pain.

I came home around 1.30 am this morning. Years ago that I came home that late, normally I go to bed at 10pm.

OUTFIT

So yesterday was the day I could were my beloved Pink tutu to the party. Insteat of wearing this tutu with a pair of high heels, I wore it with my pair of dr. Martens to make it more ‘rockchic’. I really loved the combination.

Oh I wish I could wear my tutu everyday from now. I missed it wearing it today. ‘So where’s the next party!’

Last evening I FORGOT (oh yeah forgot) to take pictures of my outfit before the party, because I was bizzy talking to colleagues.

So this evening I took some pictures to give you all an idea of how my outfit was that evening.

I felt so great wearing this, so proud, so confident, so happy, so meeeee.

Are you ready to see them ?

My dr.Martens MONO black boots with silver glitter socks. Both are coming from Schoenen Torfs here in Belgium.

IMG_5681.JPG

My midi long pink tutu (from The Tutu Shop, a  online shop for tutus here in Belgium) with my black basic shirt from Zara

My total outfit with my faux leather jacket from Vila by Zeb Belgium

Some more details… The little handbag is from Kisses of pearl, from Schoenen Torfs. The cat ears are from H&M

Other things

The evening I wore some earings from Pieces, like an old silver, the ones I always wear.

For make-up I wore…

  • foundation 010 by Lidl
  • powder by Maybelline
  • red lipstick by Clinique, my last berry pop one
  • mascara by Benefit
  • eye shadow the ones I bought on friday from Catrice
  • setting powder was by Maybelline

Like always I don’t do contouring or use blush, because that makes me look older. I really want to look young as I am and how I dress with that.

 

So I hope you loved reading this #blogmas part of me preparing for the party I was so looking forward to. I felt like ages. Now that the party is over, I have the feeling that I lost my christmas feeling. I feel like the season is already over. So strange. Maybe it’s because this was something I really wanted, and I could be me all the time yesterday. 

Now I have to found my inner Christmas spirit again.

Love Lucy xx

Sorry i can’t post today’s blogmas because i’m going to a party at work!

This girl need her time to do make-up and put on my outfit for tonight.

Outfit for tonight:

Pink tutu

Black shirt

Black Dr.martens mono

Black fake leather jacket

And cat ears

I’ll post Some pictures later!

Have a Nice evening! Love Lucy xx

Wow, it’s already December 8th 😮 I just can’t believe that tomorrow is our party at work!

Grocery shopping

Today I had another day of, so the time to do some grocery shopping at Lidl. Since we have a brand new store here in Boortmeerbeek, I really love to go there for grocery shopping. For me it’s now the perfect ‘auti-friendly’ store !

There was nothing special on my grocery list, besides some bread with nuts, spinach, bananas, peanutbutter. Most of the other things I normally eat for lunch and diner I already had bought earlier this week. I just needed some more fresh things for the weekend.

Heidi Klum collection @Lidl

Since this week you can shop the new collection of Heidi Klum at Lidl, in store and online. I saw some nice things online but I wanted to see what there was in store.

As I new there was another party collection coming, I saved some money to buy me something of this collection.

Online I saw I very nice mini skirt and a nice blue dress. Both were for sale in the store, and some of the clothes were out of their packaging. So good to check for the sizes.

Wel I was in shock how small the sizes were! I’ve took a mini skirt in the color pink I wanted and it looked great. Till the moment I saw the size, I had a size 42 in my hands and I looked like the normal size I would take in my normal shop in a size S.

So I didn’t take that skirt because the sizes didn’t felt good.

In the box next to the skirt I found the blue dress. But it was another no. The color was perfect but agian it looked so small. There was a size 44 (L) open and it looked again like my normal size 36-38 😮

I couldn’t take those clothes realizing I had to take them back to the store when they are not good from size.

Other things I liked from this collection but weren’t in my budget (I made the choice to buy the skirt and dress at home) were the scarf and a black sweater.

There was only one scarf left, and just the one with the dots I liked so I bought that one.

IMG_5578

This one I can wear with my uniform I have to wear on Saturdays at work. This one was 9,99 EUR.

Heidi Klum collection Scarf

In the same box as the scarf I found the black sweatshirt with the zippers. This I bought in my normal size 36-38 and it look good from sizing, not toooo smal as the party collection.

IMG_5580

This sweater/hoodie was only 14,99 EUR and I’m going to wear this a lot. You never can do a thing wrong with a good black hoodie ❤

Black Hoodie Heidi Klum

My afternoon

As I had a day of today, and it was cold and snowy outside, I spent the afternoon just at home watching others vlogmas on Youtube.

Together with a hot chocolate milk (powder from Lidl, Blogmas 1) and a cookie

 

Evening

This evening I took the time to DIY color my hair again. As always I used the color from the brand Syoss. My hair stays healthier and looks so much better than when I go to a hairdresser.

IMG_5582This time I bought number 7-10 a lighter version of the color I always take. It’s now dry again and it looks so good again.

My hair is ready for the party tomorrow!

Tomorrow

Later this evening I’m going to bed early. Idd, early to bed on a Friday evening while everybody is going out. I’m going out tomorrow evening after a long day at work.

Tomorrow I have to work from 9.15 am till 18.30 pm and after that we leave for our party with all the colleagues from Flanders. My first party with all the people I love.
I hope I will be awake till 3am on Sunday. It’s going to be hard because as an autistic girl I never go out at night.

Tomorrow Tomorrow Tomorrow I love you Tomorrow ! Yess, tomorrow  I can wear my pink tutu with my new dr. Martens and I can share you all the style for this party.
I will be changing clothes at work, but hey in a shoe store you have enough mirrors !

After work untill we leave for the party I will drink a loooooot of coffee !

Blogmas 9

So tomorrow I will not have the time to post another blogmas as I will be not at home in the evening. I will put some updates on my outfit on Twitter or Instagram in the evening so you can see something before I go to the party.

See you later ! Love Lucy xx

Normally I just would press the ‘order’ button on my favorite website to order new make-up products.
As you might, know I’m now living on a budget after bills for my house are getting bigger that first was planned. I also need to ‘rob’ my Ikea store in a little while.

Ikea, it was shocking to see the total of all the products I need to buy for my house.  A new bed, nog stuff for my dressing, bathroom, sofa, diningroom. My list is about 3000 EUR … i mean 3000 EUR at Ikea?? 😮

Buying make-up when you’re on a budget

Today I needed to buy a new setting powder eyeshadow and a pencil sharper. My normal setting powder cost around 45 EUR, so now I’m confused that this 2 setting powders will be good.

I saw the setting powder of Catrice and than the one from Maybelline. Together it was around 20 EUR. Why I bought 2? Well to test ! If one doesn’ work I still can try the other one.

On Saterday I have a party at work and I want to look good all evening/night, and I don’t want my make-up getting to fade after dancing.

A new pencil sharper I bought from Catrice, a pink one like the one I already had. Last weekend I stepped on mine, so it’s broken 😥

I needed a new eyeshadow as my Clinique eye shadow pencils died. I just can’t live without my champagne color on my eyes.

At the store I had found a liquid one like my Clinique one, but I was not convinced to buy it. It was less than 3 EUR, but I didn’t bought it. I bought a new one from Catrice in the shade 020 Rosefeller Center. Perfect little one for everyday.

My eye also spotted the limited edition Catrice Kaviar Gauche eye shadow palette. It’s like a beautiful palette with four colors and it will be perfect for my party make-up for Saterday and the other holidays coming up.

IMG_5576.JPG

Something for my hair

I also needed something new to do in my hair next Saturday. I found this little cat ears at the store from ‘accessories’. They were 5,95 EUR so for today that still was okay.

I also needed a bottle of Dove deo, and so I got 2 bracelats for free, as a Holiday gift.

IMG_5575.JPG

For around 40 EUR I had everything today. Normally the cost of that one setting powder I used to buy.

Cat ears?

I have some bigger cat ears from H&M, twice as big as the ones above. Those are not the kind of tiara I could were everyday to work.

These are smaller and metal, so I’m thinking of wearing them also at home or at a day at work. As a shoeseller/shoe adivsor for kids this will still be good, I guess?

What do you guys think? Should I wear these cat ears like a everyday tiara or is it not done?

Blogmas 8 coming up…

Tomorrow is December 8, just a normal day. No plans at this moment maybe do some grocery shopping as I have to work on Saterday.

Thanks for reading !

Love, Lucy xx
