Time to Say Goodbye (again)

finnishforest

As always, time went extremely fast and our Finland holiday has come to an end. There’s always a lot of mixed feelings involved as I obviously miss Matthew and having our little family intact but feel so at home here in Finland with my family here that I wouldn’t mind staying for longer. Both Lana and I are very comfortable here and she’s enjoying spending time with her mommo and mofa – although she insists on calling them both mommo (granny) 🙂

Dinner at Meat District in Porvoo

Porvoo Old Town

I wasn’t planning on writing a blog post about my recent visit to my home town’s newcomer on the restaurant scene, Meat District, (hence the lovely and dark mobile photos) but then changed my mind after having seen my main dish…You can see the restaurant on the left hand side in the photo above – a very nice location in the middle of picturesque Porvoo Old Town. The restaurant takes pride in serving ecological and locally sourced meat where possible but welcomes vegetarians too.

A New Beginning

We finally had internet installed yesterday (it was a tough 5 days I have to admit), which means I can tell you a bit about the move to our new home! Our moving day was Saturday, and with the help of a man with a van and Matthew’s brother (thanks again Daniel!) we managed to move all our stuff to the new place in just over 2 hours. Not bad!

We’re Moving!

We’re moving to our new flat this Saturday and it feels surreal, exciting and sad at the same time. Surreal because we haven’t really allowed ourselves to get too excited before we get the keys and are hence maybe not all that prepared mentally. Exciting because we’re finally moving into a place that we can call our own and do whatever we want with, yay! And sad because the flat we’re in now is where Lana spent the first 1,5 years of her life and for some reason I don’t like the thought of strangers moving into “our” home…Can anyone relate?
