Birthdays, Colds & Rats

Howdy ho! Really struggling to find time to update my blog these days, nevertheless to plan what I’m going to write about – so once again I’m just going to ramble about random things.

Frost & Paint

Posted on

Today was such a beautiful frosty and sunny morning that the girls and I were all in awe of the stunning autumnal landscape glistening in the morning sun when we were driving to nursery. I made a plan in my head to go and get the camera once I’ve dropped off the girls, but by the time I got back it was too late, the sun was too high and a lot of the frost had melted.

Back to Uni

Posted on

Yesterday I was watching a Finnish reality show about ice hockey players wives/girlfriends, and in that show one of the girlfriends was studying nutrition at the open University. I instantly googled it, found a course that starts today and signed up! I’ve been interested in nutrition for most of my adult life, so it is about time I start doing something about it! And hey, this clearly proves that it can be useful to watch reality TV garbage haha!

3 Months Later…

Posted on

Well hello there, it’s been a while! Three months to be precise! But I’m back and I never actually intended to stop blogging, a break just sort of happened. These past three months have held some big changes within them and it’s been pretty hectic at times – leaving not much time nor energy to blog.

A Wee Life Update

Posted on

Oh boy, it’s been a month since my last blog…There’s just been a lot going on and I haven’t felt like opening my laptop to be honest. Instead I’ve been doing more reading, knitting, knotting and sewing. But time for a quick update now me thinks!

Cranky Toddler, Sugar Detox & DIY Mania

Posted on

It’s been one of those pretty tiring weeks so I thought I’d come here and complain a little to you guys haha. I’m also on a one-month “sugar detox”, which might make me a bit cranky too…But I actually just came back from an energising run, finally washed my hair and I have a fresh batch of home made granola in the oven, so life is winning again!

A New Toy

creatimber balance board

For ages I’ve been thinking about getting the girls one of those wooden curved boards that kids (and adults) can work on their balance on and get rid of some of that excess energy, but just haven’t gotten around to actually buying one. So when Csilla from SaltyFun got in touch asking if I’d like to try out a Creatimber board she recently started selling in her web shop I didn’t hesitate to say yes.

A Good Day

Runebergs tart

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.

Snowed In

Posted on

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!
