Ever wondered what it’s like to have a baby? This photo pretty much sums it up. Just came home from the grocery shop with Lana and realised what a mess our living room is. And the best way to deal with it is obviously to take a photo and share it with the rest of the world…:)
I’m usually not too keen on celebrating my birthday and being reminded of the fact that I’m (still) getting older, but I think that I’m finally starting to be ok with it. 32 is not a bad age at all and there’s so much to look forward to that I just can’t be wasting any time or energy on being upset about getting older!
During Lana’s and mine Finland visit we spent a day in Helsinki with a good friend, eating well and checking out the Design Museum. Having lived in Helsinki for most of my twenties the city will always have a special place in my heart and I’m hoping I’ll get to live there again one day – or at least so close that I can visit often!
Since I travel between Finland and the UK several times a year I cannot help but make small observations about differences in Finnish and Scottish everyday life that I find curious, interesting or just plain annoying – and now I thought I’d share them with you as well my dear friends. Remember that these are just my personal, not-so-objective observations and generalisations based on 1,5 years in London and 2,5 years in Edinburgh! So without further introductions, here they are:
Today was one of those good days when I just woke up in a good mood and didn’t even feel tired although I barely slept last night (both Lana and trouble falling asleep are to blame). The sun was shining from a blue sky once again and the lawn was glistening with frost. Yup, we’re down to minus degrees already! I didn’t bring warm enough clothes for Lana (I don’t think she even owns clothes that warm), so we had to get her some wintry stuff.
