It’s All About the Corona

I know I haven’t blogged for more than two months – life has just gotten more hectic after starting full time work and studies that I have chosen not to stress about it and just write if I feel like it. And clearly I haven’t haha.

A Moment to Breathe

Posted on

Some days I just know it’s going to be a good day right from the start. The energy is different and I know I’m going to get a lot done. Usually this has nothing to do with how I’ve slept, because let’s face it, I rarely have a good night’s sleep because of my two little alarm clocks that go off throughout the night…

Chaos, Me-Time & New Shoes

Posted on

The moments of calm are few and far in between in our house these days, but I’m sure I will miss the chaos that comes with two little kids when it’s not there anymore. Just earlier tonight Maya was hanging on her highchair, which tipped over on top of her and somehow gave her a proper nosebleed. Lana was right next to her and also started crying and asking over and over again if Maya is ok. It is so nice and reassuring that she gets so worried when her little sister hurts herself – she really seems to care about her 🙂

Thoughts About Exercising

Posted on

Maya is ill and has therefore enjoyed a longer nap today, and since I have a cold as well and trying to take it easy I’ve given myself permission to just watch TV during her sleep. I love food and health-related TV shows, so first I watched an episode of the Finnish “You Are What You Eat” and then an episode of “Fitness Diaries” – a show where five Finnish fitness-women vlog about their lives. And after I watched these shows I felt that I have to write about something that has been on my mind for a while. 

Life Update

I’ve been meaning to write something about how we’re settling in in Finland and Helsinki, but I haven’t really had the energy to post anything – so guess my blog has been on a bit of a summer holiday too! But now a few things have happened and the holiday is more or less over…

Shocked

Posted on

Yesterday, just as I was trying to leave the house with the girls, someone rang the doorbell. I opened and it turned out to be a guy from our gas and electricity company who wanted to check our meters, which seems to happen every few months. It was a big, friendly guy with a foreign accent who I immediately took a liking to.

“You Young Mums Are so Beautiful”

Posted on

Last summer I spent a day in Helsinki with Lana, and as the flat my mum owns is near the sea we headed to the beach first thing. Lana was throwing rocks in the sea and I was watching her when a man who was leaving walked past and said “you young mothers are just so beautiful”.

Another Year Gone By

Posted on

Last day of the year. Always makes me feel I should be reflecting over the past year. 2017 has had its highs and lows, the main high obviously being welcoming Maya into the world and the main low being not feeling great at the beginning of the pregnancy. But overall it’s been another good year and we’ve all been healthy and happy, which is the main thing!

My Thoughts About Brexit

Posted on

Happy election day! It’s been raining non-stop since the morning so wonder how many will skip voting in the general election today…I’m not allowed to vote because I’m not a British citizen, but I have to say I’m almost relieved as I wouldn’t know which party to vote for. Maybe the Greens but then again that’s not a tactical vote as they have no chance against the Conservative Party. Hmm.
