And We’re Having…

Posted on

…another girl!! I had my second scan today and we were so happy and relieved to be told that the baby looks perfectly well in every way and is growing as she should. And there was no way we weren’t going to find out the sex! We got such a good view that we could tell ourselves that it was a girl even before the radiologist told us 🙂

When the Family Came to Visit

Posted on

It’s been a month since my parents and my second youngest brother (I’ve got 5!) came to visit. My parents actually visited for the first time exactly one year ago, but luckily this year the trees were still full of cherry blossom. It was a much needed visit as we hadn’t seen them since our last visit just after Christmas. Scroll down to see what we got up to!

A Family Weekend

It’s been just the three of us all weekend and even though we haven’t had any special plans we’ve managed to come up with lots of fun stuff to do (and eat). I like to have plans for the weekends and can feel a bit anxious and stressed even if we don’t, so I’ll always make sure we get out after breakfast at least on one of the days. Does anyone else feel this way? I mean, as a parent I should enjoy days where I don’t have to do anything right?!

How We Met

Posted on

I started writing this post one evening several months ago, and although I can’t remember why I suddenly felt the need to share our story it’ll definitely be nice to have it written down before we forget how it all happened…I’ve been waiting for a good time to share this post, and Valentine’s Day seems to be quite appropriate 🙂 So here is how Matthew and I met – albeit not the most romantic story it has a funny twist!

This is My Sunday

Posted on

Even though I didn’t sleep well last night I woke up this morning feeling energised and decided I’m going to get a lot done today. Since we didn’t have any solid plans I thought it’ll be a good day to do a blog about a very typical Sunday of ours. I love these kind of posts and I hope you won’t find it boring!

My Christmas in Pictures

Posted on

It always feels a bit absurd how quickly Christmas is over considering how much time you spend preparing for it. It’s a bit sad almost, but luckily there is always next year! This year we spent Christmas here in Scotland, so it was my second British Christmas. Keep scrolling to see how our Chrimbo turned out!

Gingerbread Cookie Baking

Posted on

Baking gingerbread cookies, or pepparkakor in Swedish and piparkakkuja in Finnish, is a Christmas tradition that I love and want to hold on to with Lana – so for the first time I can remember I actually made my own dough and got baking! In Finland you can buy readymade dough that is so nice that there’s no point in making your own…

Random Ramblings

Our wonky fake Christmas tree is up and has found its perfect spot in the living room. Lana was a huge help (read: hindrance) when decorating the tree and has already destroyed several baubles…I’m hoping she’ll lose interest in our poor tree soon!
