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 🙂

Ikea Duktig Play Kitchen Makeover DIY

I’ve just finished another DIY-project of mine – that I obviously want to share with you guys. I’ve been wanting to get the girls a proper play kitchen for a while, so decided to pimp the Ikea Duktig one for Maya’s birthday (two months ago…). Since I didn’t finish it then I thought I’d do it as a Christmas gift instead.

A Finnish-British Christmas

Christmas 2019 is done and dusted, and as usual it makes me feel a bit blue. You look forward to and prepare for something for so long and then suddenly it’s over in just one day. But I can comfort myself with that it was a good one; the first Christmas in our new house – with Matthew’s parents here too.

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…

Monday Mornings

The past two weeks have been pretty draining since we’ve all been ill. Or well, as usual I’ve only had a slight cold and have continued just as normal. The girls, however, have both been home from nursery for a week each – two separate weeks of course. Last week Matthew also got pretty ill and basically thought he was going to die. As usual.

Maya 2 Years

I’ve got so much love for my wee Maya Papaya. Can’t believe she is two already. She is a little charmer, there’s no doubt about that. A little charmer with a will made of steel. Maya knows exactly what she wants and will let us know if she doesn’t get it, loud and clear. Usually lying on her back whilst kicking and hitting. Although most of the time she’ll try to help herself to whatever she wants, very much like her big sister. Two independent, self-acting souls, the two of them.

Howdy ho! Really struggling to find time to update my blog these days, nevertheless to plan what I’m going to write about – so once again I’m just going to ramble about random things.
