A Foodie’s Heaven

I think my birthday dinner was so exquisite that it deserves a blog post of its own. We had around 8 courses all-together, that’s pretty much 4 more courses than I’ve ever had at one sitting. And we had amazing wines with every course too (in hindsight I don’t understand how I was able to drink goon when living in Australia!). The award winning hotel restaurant at Monachyle Mhor is renown among foodies, and many travel to the middle of nowhere in the Scottish Highlands just to eat at the restaurant. 

Autumn in Scotland

First of all I have some good news; my little nephew finally arrived last Saturday, can’t wait to meet him! Have to wait a couple of months though, until we go to Finland again 🙁 We decided to celebrate Christmas here (partly because the flights were so expensive) and New Year in Finland, so this will be my first British Christmas 🙂 If anyone knows of any New Year parties in Porvoo or Helsinki do let me know!

Happy London Times

East London Netil House View

Hey folks!

When I first moved up to Edinburgh I really thought that it would be supereasy to just pop down to London for a weekend or so, but I soon realised that it is easier said than done. Train tickets are ridiculously expensive if you want to travel at a decent time (or any other time for that matter), and a 4,5-5 hour train-ride isn’t really my idea of a good time either. Flying is another possibility, but having done that it is almost even more of a hassle than taking the train.

Brits Love Their Puns

The Elephant House

I was trying to come up with a pun for the title, but can’t think of anything…As you might’ve guessed already, this post will be about a thing British people really seem to love: puns. I guess English, with its inconsistency between spoken and written language, is perfect for producing puns. (Btw, ‘The Elephant House’ is not a pun, it’s one of the cafes where J.K.Rowling wrote Harry Potter. Just chucked it in there to confuse you.)

Missing Helsinki

Cathedral

I don’t know if it’s because I hadn’t been to Helsinki for a year and therefore was seeing it through new eyes, but it was sooo nice to be back this summer, and the city has never looked so beautiful. I had really been looking forward to showing the city I (more or less) lived in from the age of 19 to 28 to Matthew. He seemed to appreciate Helsinki and kept going on about how good-looking the people were. I completely agree 🙂

Cows & Rams

Hi all!

Yet another week has gone by so quickly that it almost scares me…

Anyhoo, work is getting busier every day as the company keeps growing at a speed so fast that we’re running out of desks to sit at. We’ve gotten quite a few new clients on board lately which is a good thing, but can soon make us swamped with work unless we get more new people. Our client base is really varied, I do online marketing stuff for companies that sell shoes, energy chewing gum, cleaning services, garden rooms, storage space, IT services, jewellery, pest control services, promote wedding bands etc.
