When life gives you lemons, throw them right back.

It’s been raining cats and dogs here the past few days. I could still sit on our balcony and do my stretching while listening to lovely sound that rain makes. None of us were really complaining. Alba and I even jumped a lot of puddles on the way home from school. Oh, the joy, IContinue reading “When life gives you lemons, throw them right back.”

Have a hot cup of coffee

I absolutely love when the coffee maker, right before it’s done, purrs like a pleased kitten lying on it’s back in complete trust. The familiar aromas filling the kitchen promising a new day has come. There’s a secrete message in the steam that’s slowly dancing from the hot cup. It’s easily forgotten in the dailyContinue reading “Have a hot cup of coffee”

“A black belt is a white belt that never quit”

So Monday has come to it’s end and (read my question as Chandler from Friends would say it, the ones who know will know) could I be a worse mother? Wille was feeling better, he said so himself and he was teasing his sister like any other day. I asked him several times if heContinue reading ““A black belt is a white belt that never quit””

“Sisters and brothers are the truest, purest forms of love, family and friendship, knowing when to hold you and when to challenge you, but always being a part of you.”

At this very moment I should be wishing for death at the Monday fitness class but instead I’m tucked in bed with the kids. Wille got a fever yesterday afternoon and has all night slept very close to me with a sore throat and headache. Poor little thing, the way he tells me that itContinue reading ““Sisters and brothers are the truest, purest forms of love, family and friendship, knowing when to hold you and when to challenge you, but always being a part of you.””

Sundays – sleep until you’re hungry, eat until you’re sleepy

This morning the man of the house left for work at seven o’clock. I would almost call that in the middle of the night. Okay, that’s not fair but it should be a crime on a Sunday. Up until the last minutes of Filip getting ready I was holding my breath and thinking “please, pleaseContinue reading “Sundays – sleep until you’re hungry, eat until you’re sleepy”

En iskall storm

If the sea can calm itself, so can you Unknown Från utåt sett skulle detta varit en panglördag. Jo såklart, från alla mina egna mått också. Men så kändes det ändå inte för mig. Hur jag än försökte och önskade det. Och istället för att använda barnens limpistol för att göra mig en tratthatt förContinue reading “En iskall storm”

Så bor vi

People are usually the happiest at home William Shakespeare För den nyfikna kommer här bilder på lägenheten. Allt som vi kan tänkas önska finns här i närheten. Tre sovrum, två badrum, vardagsrum, kök och balkong.  Allt och lite till, ett utrymme för både dans och sång.  Trots gångavstånd till havet har vi även tillgång tillContinue reading “Så bor vi”
