This day hasn’t been very exciting. The full moon really affected me and my mood has been a bit off. I slept nine hours and woke up tired. I feel low and slow. Tomorrow will be a better day. But for now, look at this little lady. She brings so much joy to my heart.
Woke up at 8am today, the longest sleep-in I had in a while. It’s been a long week at work, and things constantly felt like it were going against me. So I was very much happy to close up on Saturday and start my weekend.
After work I went home and changed into something nicer, and we drove to a friend’s place for dinner. They served us with lamb cutlets, roast potato’s and tzatziki and cheese and mango ice cream for dessert. Around 12am I was so tired and we drove back home. Yet I wasn’t asleep until probably 2am with a mind still being awake even though the body was exhausted.
Lazy Sunday morning started with coffee and watching the morning TV in the couch. Later on we went to Ikea to spend our 60$ voucher that was about to expire and eat lunch (you can see how much we Swedish people like our sauce) . Really just got rather unexciting things like a new frying pan and lunch boxes..
For dinner we made bibimbap, I had marinated tofu with mine and Alex cooked up a scotch fillet. It was so yummy. Such a simple dinner but completely satisfying. Now it’s 9.21 and I will make my move to the bed as the tired nut I am.
About a week before I turned 29, I just had this overwhelming feeling of….getting older. I don’t mind getting older, I actually like it as I feel like every year I’m getting wiser and finding myself more. But when I was a teenager I got a septum piercing. I took the piercing out after not having it in for too long, but apparently I had it long enough because 15 years later it still hasn’t grown together. So when I noticed, I jumped into the car and drove to the closest tattoo studio 8:40 pm on a Friday night to purchase a septum ring. And suddenly, I just feel a bit more rebellious rather than getting-closer-to-30-wtf.
Oh dear, where did the time go? It’s been a while since I checked in here. But life has been a little bit of a roller-coaster lately and so much has happened. I got a new job. Summer is here. It’s almost Christmas. The year is almost over. But I’m excited. I feel like life is getting better. Like I’m moving forward.
I feel excited. For a new year. For what life has in front of me. It’s a nice feeling. The feeling of going in the right direction.
Today I’m having a day off. I have been to the gym. Picked up the weeks groceries (and they even added chocolate for my pick-up order, it made me so happy. It’s like they know me from what I usually order and gave me the healthier option) and now I’m laying in the couch going through stuff for work. Yesterday we put up the few Christmas decorations we have. I said “if we don’t even try to celebrate Christmas here, we will never get used to it”. It’s weird to celebrate Christmas in the middle of summer, but we just need to change our mindset.
Good evening! A bit of an update rom the couch potato herself… This is probably the calmest Halloween weekend of my grown up life. Usually I have been working and then going from work to a party. This year, not that exciting but I actually prefer. I would enjoy the dress up part but that’s it, haha. Yesterday evening we went to visit our friends, we were just sitting in their backyard talking, and having a few light beers before going back home around 9 pm. The weather is so bipolar and it constantly looks like it’s gonna be a massive thunderstorm but then the sun comes out..
Today we went to Alex’s office to do a bit of work, had a nice lunch, then we made homemade ravioli with spinach and ricotta filling in a butter and sage sauce for dinner. It was the first time we made pasta and I am surprised how easy it actually was. Now we’re just processing the food coma, but I honestly think it won’t get more exciting than this for tonight.
