Hi guys, it’s been a while! We basically dedicated a whole week to experiencing what it’s like when the whole family has a stomach bug and then the following week I’ve just been lacking energy to write.

I don’t know if it’s the spring that has inspired me to get my sewing machine out and come up with all sorts of little DIY projects, but I’m definitely enjoying creating things with my own little hands at the moment. I saw this easy DIY project on a colourful Finnish blog and immediately decided to try it out and share it with you, in English. Will try and keep it short and sweet, so here we go.

It’s Thursday and I’m having my first cup of coffee this week whilst Maya is asleep. A little Valentine’s Day treat for myself 🙂 Here in Finland the 14th of February is actually called “Friendship Day” and is a day when you give your friends cards or small gifts or just wish them a happy friendship day. So Happy Friendship Day to all my lovely friends out there!

I don’t know why the hell I haven’t made granola before – especially since I think the shop-bought stuff is way overpriced and consists mainly of oats and sugar. Now if you make your own YOU get to decide what to put in it and what the perfect oats to nuts to dried fruit ratio is.

Oodi – Not Your Average Library

Posted on

Just over a month ago, one day before the Finnish Independence Day, the much anticipated new central library opened in Helsinki. Myself, along with the rest of the city it seemed, had been waiting to visit the beautiful three-storey ship-like building made of wood, glass and steel – and we weren’t disappointed. What a place! Makes me proud to be a Finn.

I’m Back!

It’s been a while since my last blog post and I’m sure many will think I’m pregnant as the only two other times I’ve had a break was when I was pregnant and not feeling well. So let’s start with saying that I’m not preggers!
