This is Why I Moved to Finland

Posted on

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.

A Week of Two Emergency Calls

It’s been one of those weeks where I feel like I haven’t had any time to unwind and just sit down with my laptop and spend some time on my blog – there’s always something to do, someone to feed or laundry to be washed. I’m pretty sure 99% of mums out there are with me on this one! Maybe next week will be more relaxed…

5 Fun & Visual Family Instagram Accounts

I am a very visual person with a love for aesthetics. I want my home to look presentable, I want my plate of food to look colourful and inviting, I love a bit of sleek design and I am drawn to cute-looking shops – I just adore pretty things in life. Instagram is by far my favourite social media platform because it can be a treasure chest where you can find the most gorgeous photos if you start digging.

5 Things that Make Me Happy this Week

Can’t believe I’m here, blogging again! 3 posts in 4 days must be some kind f a record of mine. But hey, when I feel inspired to blog I just want to go with it – cause there will be plenty of times I won’t feel like sharing anything. Thankfully I don’t answer to anybody and can choose to blog whenever and whatever I want!

We’ve had a good weekend albeit not very happening – but sometimes those weekends are the best ones. I feel like we’ve all been quite relaxed and like we’ve recharged batteries for the coming week. We’ve also made some big purchases, such as a new buggy, yay. Scroll down to see what we got up to!
