Hello there! It’s a sunny and summery day here in the Porvoo countryside and I suddenly felt it’s about time I write something on my neglected blog. A little update, long overdue.

Well hello, it’s been a while! Last time I wrote we were still in the midst of corona, whereas now life is starting to get back to normal. The girls have been back at nursery for a month and I have been going to my office (with just one other person there) but Matthew continues to work from home.

Howdy ho from casa Äikäs-Adams! How is everyone holding up? Getting cabin fever or maybe secretly enjoying social distancing? I want to keep writing down how this absurd time is affecting us – so here’s a wee update from us 🙂

I know I haven’t blogged for more than two months – life has just gotten more hectic after starting full time work and studies that I have chosen not to stress about it and just write if I feel like it. And clearly I haven’t haha.

My first week of work is done and dusted, and so far everything seems great! I also had a webinar for my digital marketing course, and next week I’ll have my first day at school where I’ll get to properly meet all my new schoolmates 🙂

Things are finally moving forward and the future looks a lot clearer for me, which is such a relief as I feel about 90% less stressed. Now I can just focus on preparing for Christmas and enjoying the holidays before our new life begins at the beginning of January!

Hello from our girls’ night in! Matthew is at his company Christmas party and will stay overnight in Helsinki – which means I’m on my own with the girls for the first time in our new house…Which makes me feel a little bit nervous – but I’m sure it’ll be fine as long as I don’t hear any strange noises or something…
