Friends & Food

Hi folks! Greetings from a very unpredictable Edinburgh! The weather lately seems to change every two minutes: it goes from sunny to pouring rain to hail to strong winds in a matter of minutes – which makes it very difficult to decide whether a walk with Lana is a smart idea or not. 

Stuffed Courgette Rolls

I always find it difficult to find good recipes for starters, so when I was making stuffed courgette rolls the other night I decided to share the recipe here in case anyone else has the same problem!

Sunny Saturday

Posted on


Happy Saturday folks! It’s so nice to be able to fit in my old clothes again – it’s like having a whole new wardrobe to try out! So this sunny Saturday I rediscovered my favourite skirt (inherited from my granny), my favourite necklace (second hand), my favourite cardigan (Monki), my favourite bag (from Mexico) – and introduced them to a new addition: a striped shirt I bought in a charity shop last week. All ready to go out for some lunch 🙂

Lana's New Toy

Posted on


As Lana has been a very alert baby who needs a lot of stimulation right from the beginning we have resorted to different toys to keep her occupied at least some of the time. When she turned 3 months a few days ago she was finally old enough to try her doorway jumper – and as you can see it was a winner 🙂

3 Months of Being a Mum

Posted on

First of all; Happy Finnish Mother’s Day to my dear mother and all the wonderful Finnish mothers I know!

Thought it would be nice to put down some thoughts about what motherhood has been like up until now – Lana was 3 months old yesterday. It seems like a good time as I’m now finally starting to feel that things have settled down and I feel a bit more in control…I also feel like I’m back to normal both physically and mentally. Plus it’s Mother’s Day of course 🙂

First Meetings

Posted on


During our two weeks in Finland Lana naturally got to meet quite a few new people, and I tried to be there with the camera to snap some memories – as I doubt Lana will remember much from the visit!

Saturday's Outfit

A few weeks ago I entered a competition on the lovely Elisabeth’s blog Dragonfly and was lucky enough to win a necklace by Iki Koru – a Finnish jewellery collection made from recycled materials. The necklace is just my style, so I was over the moon when I won 🙂
