Room with a view

This is my view from my bedroom.
They are currently painting my house, that is the wooden plank ruining the view, just slightly;) Hih!

Sweet dear Anna brought me some tomatoes she had grown. I am such a spoilt creature, lucky me.

Ps. They tasted divine.

Thank you dear friends!

I am well, just very busy with a new dayjob and still trying to cope with jobs not yet ready, from my freelance past. And the moving. Plus I'm moving again in just a few days, I found another house that is more suited for my needs. I am very pleased, but there's plenty for one person to handle. Today when I cykled home in the rain from work, I for a split second had a thought, now I really wish there would be a warm gentle dear person waiting for me at home. I seldom feel lonely, in fact I don't think I have felt lonely, but today I was especially happy to have a furry friend. One of those days, one of those days.

So it will be a little quiet on the blogfront for a while. But I am still here and even if I don't leave comments, I still pop in and read your posts.

Take care and thank you for popping by, though it is rather quiet here. And thank you for your lovely words, they warm my heart.

 Above is one of my etched glasses.

Just a quick hello!

During the weekend I decided not to do anything to do with the house. So on friday I took myself out for a run and then  had a sauna. On saturday I had brekky at a favorite café and saw a danceperformance in the evening. On sunday I went for an outing to see an exhibition at Villa Roosa in Orimattila. The exhibition was so wonderful. In the evening I met up with friends and had dinner.

Time to wish you good night and have a good week!

I have moved

It has been a hectic week, packing and moving.

But now I feel my new home is slowly taking shape, I have unpacked most of my things.

I believe I shall be happy here.

Bad and good news

I'm sad to have to tell you, the house that I was about to buy, well, after a thorough check, it turned out to have too many hidden risks. For ex. the roof was minerit-board, which classifies as toxic waste (it contains 20% asbestos fibre), and can in the worst cases turn out extremely expensive and hard to get rid of.

But good news is that I have managed to rent a small house bult in the 1850's. So whilst I continue househunting, I can still live in the best location and most adorable house ever. Unfortunately this particular house is not for sale.

The weekend was so lovely so I got some plants and herbs for the front garden, my little bench and table is perfect size for this patio. Picture above.

Today I shall hit the beach in the afternoon, after I've done a little more unpacking.
