Everyday Life

Posted on

Just thought I’d come here and ramble a little bit about what’s happening in our everyday life. I enjoy reading about those mundane everyday things in other blogs and think there could be more of that here too – especially since I do enjoy writing about it. Or what do you think??

35 is the New 25 Right?

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…

The Best Thing Ever

Posted on

I don’t really have a clear thought in my head, so maybe not the best moment to come here and blog – but just felt like writing something anyway! I mainly want to rave about how happy I am with Lana going to nursery and how many good things have come out of it already.

One Hot Challenge

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. 

This is Why I Moved to Finland

Warm summer days on an island surrounded by friends and their kids – what more could you ask for?! Matthew even suggested we buy ourselves an island to build a house on, Lana was so busy she didn’t have time to eat and Maya loves it when stuff is happening around her – so it’s fair to say we all enjoyed our day in the Finnish archipelago!

Forgot to Tell You!

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!

In Limbo

We still don’t have a moving date and haven’t even started packing yet. It’s nice to be able to take it easy and not having to stress and work towards a certain date – but at the same time I kind of want to have a clear plan, because I feel we’re a little bit in limbo now! 

Life Lately

Posted on

Life lately has consisted of cleaning the house over and over again and doing closer to 30 viewings in a week – with more booked in. I feel like a broken record just repeating the same things over and over again to all the people coming to view the house. But we’re very pleased that it’s been so popular and it’s been nice to speak to so many lovely young people who are looking to get on the property ladder. In fact, one of the first viewers was a Finnish woman!

An Ordinary Week

Maya has been pretty needy lately and basically hasn’t wanted to do anything on her own or let me do anything on my own either – so that’s why there hasn’t been much activity on my blog this week! Like her big sister, she’s not a great napper during the day either, which doesn’t give me much time to get stuff done. She often only naps for 30 minutes – unless I take her out in the pram when she might sleep for up to two hours.
