Today has been a good day. Nothing special has happened but still. Maybe it was the vibes from the chilled out Sunday we had that carried over to Monday or maybe it’s just that a few things have transpired that I’m happy about and others that I’m really looking forward to.
Hello from a pretty damn snowy Helsinki! If you follow me on instagram you’ll know how happy I’ve been over the wintry winter we’re having here in Finland. After 7 years in the UK I am just appreciating it so much. I feel like I kid!
The sun is back after a long, grey and rainy period – and the beautiful winter light just makes me want to take my camera with me everywhere. It’s gotten pretty cold too, which means I’m struggling to figure out what the girls should be wearing in order not to be cold or sweaty. And struggling to keep those gloves on Maya. It’s not easy stuff! But I much prefer it this way instead of rain and clouds!
I just finished knitting a hat for my mum and it only took a few days. Since the pattern was so easy and it’s something even a beginner could knit, I thought I should share it here. Because I’m sure many of you would like to try knitting something right?! A perfect skill to pick up just before Christmas as well.
I usually don’t like to make a fuss about my birthday, partly because I don’t like getting older and older and older…But this year, for some reason, I felt like I wanted to document my day, so that’s exactly what I did. My birthday held within it a lot of food and sweets, just the way I like it. We also visited a festival, which was right up my street…
I haven’t blogged for a while, probably because I’ve been too busy enjoying this incredible summer we’re having here in Finland – and that’s how it should be if you ask me! We’re out and about every day as it is impossible (and too hot) to be inside, so I feel like we are really making the most out of this summer.
