Christmas can’t be only one week away right?? What happened to the time leading up to the holidays when you’re supposed to feel christmassy and light candles and drink mulled wine? I don’t know, maybe we’ve been too busy and too tired to get into the spirit – but I hope it’ll find us in Edinburgh!
So with Lana going to nursery I foolishly thought I’d have lots of extra time to blog – but I seem to have forgotten that 10-month-olds don’t really play on their own, but prefer to follow you around the house demanding to get picked up every two seconds…So here I am, trying to publish something about Matthew’s family’s visit two weeks later!
A couple of weeks ago we made an im promptu decision to go to Stockholm on a two-night cruise with my brother and his family. A mini-holiday across the pond. I’ve been on one of these cruises so many times I’ve lost count – but never with kids. Turns out they’re perfect for children and Lana and Max (and Maya) had a blast!
I just realised that I haven’t told you guys that we’re moving next week! On Monday or Tuesday our stuff will get picked up and driven all the way to Helsinki and on Thursday we’ll get on a flight to Finland. We were going to wait until the papers for selling our flat were signed, but since no one seems to know when exactly that will be happening we just went ahead and booked our flights!
The weather today has been glorious, but I can’t say I’ve been able to enjoy it properly because of all the drama that happened…It was Matthew’s sister’s baby shower (in pink below) and me and the girls were invited to Morningside to her in-laws’ place for a lovely brunch in the sun. It was so warm no tights were needed and hairy legs could see the sun for the first time in a long while!
Matthew’s sister sent me a link to this sister snapshot blog post and said it’s something she wants to do when her baby arrives – have I told you that she is pregnant btw?! Lana and Maya will be getting a wee Scottish cousin in June, which we’re all very excited about! Another little girl as well <3
Our second vlog is now live on the Äikäs-Adams Family YouTube channel! Matthew edited the video and I did most of the talking in it – although Matthew did manage to say the F-word when he hit his head (watch our next video!) and Lana just said, out of nowhere when we were having our morning porridge, that pappa hit his head and pappa said ****. Great work Matthew.
