it would be nice

if i had a little gnome living in my house. he would wait for me to get home and he’d make me a cup of tea, prepare a footbath for my inflamed foot, cook a tasty dinner and most of all do the dishes afterwards. then he would sit next to me on the couch and talk about the day that has passed, and he would bring me back down to earth when i fly too far away with my thoughts.

yes, that would be very nice...

ou sara .. this comes from my most favorite book of my childhood.. you cannot imagine how many journeys i took with it.. and it is connected to the most honest and beautiful woman that i have ever encountered in my life.. thank you for the trigger..

rainer, there you are...!!! i was thinking about you again today. hoping for a sign of life, and look what i got!
i didn't know this was your favorite book. i also loved it. and the movie. did you see it? and who is the woman, i wonder of course, and i have my guess, but might be wrong.

Åh, ja tack! Jag har ju tänkt att jag skulle vilja ha en hushållerska, men en liten tomte vore ju snäppet bättre! Eller en hemmaman...
