What I Ate During my 2,5 Months on a Vegan Diet

At the beginning of August I watched the controversial documentary called “What the Health” and as many other people went vegan straight away. I didn’t even decide to go vegan, I just woke up the following morning and realised I couldn’t stomach any animal-derived foods. I ate a completely vegan diet for the following 2,5 months – which also pretty much coincided with my third trimester of pregnancy.

Traumatised For Life

I know the headline is a bit dramatic, but that’s truly how I feel after a 10-hour journey with a 2-month and a 2-year old. Don’t know what I was thinking booking a non-direct flight with a two-hour stopover at London Heathrow – but that will NEVER happen again, no matter what it’ll cost me. And actually just yesterday they announced Finnair is going to start flying direct Helsinki-Edinburgh all year round! 

Another Year Gone By

Last day of the year. Always makes me feel I should be reflecting over the past year. 2017 has had its highs and lows, the main high obviously being welcoming Maya into the world and the main low being not feeling great at the beginning of the pregnancy. But overall it’s been another good year and we’ve all been healthy and happy, which is the main thing!

Maya’s First Christmas

Once again Christmas came and went so, so quickly. This Christmas was the first in 30 something years where my dad didn’t have to cook – instead we celebrated in my twin brother’s new house that he built with his own bare hands. This Christmas was also the first in many, many years where Santa decided to come visit – and seeing the excitement (or fear) of the little ones brought back memories from when I was a kid myself. 

Merry Christmas!

Just want to quickly wish everybody a MERRY CHRISTMAS 2017!! I hope you get to celebrate it with your loved ones and eat good food! This is Maya’s first Christmas and I was adamant we take some family Christmas photos – but little Lana the Dictator wasn’t cooperating and Maya was asleep, so it is what it is. At least we’re all in the photo haha!

My Dictator & Christmas Tree Lover

I don’t know what it is with Lana, but she’s been a real handful lately and I can’t wait for Matthew to get here tonight to share the load – even though I have my parents here to help and I shouldn’t really need it! Today’s been pretty bad; she keeps following me around not wanting to do anything I suggest and saying “NO!” even more than usual…She’s very bossy too and I constantly get ordered to “COME HERE!”. I need a break!
