2015 vs 2017

Posted on

My original plan was to take this same sofa photo of the cousins every time I visited Finland, but surprise surprise there’s been a gap of more than two years…Anyway, above is a recent photo of the four cousins (where unfortunately half of the team decided to be grumpy) and below is a photo from when they were 2 months, 4 months, a year and 3 years old. How time flies!! 

A Perfect Father’s Day

Posted on

We’ve had a long day today and a brilliant Father’s Day altogether. Lana’s been on form and walked with us for hours and hours as we didn’t even bring the buggy. She’s passed out in her bed now and I think we will be soon too! Warm weather always makes you that little bit extra tired.

And We’re Having…

…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!
