My life

I have no self control

Just… no. None. Well, some. But depending on the situation I can be easily persuaded. Unless I feel stubborn at the time. Then there’s no way to convince me otherwise. What am I on about? Basically, I had ice-cream today. And some crisps. I regret nothing!

I signed up for a 5k mud run. It conflicts with a few of my principles. The first one being ‘I don’t run.’ I just don’t. For the life of me I can’t understand people who do it for fun and enjoyment. I run for 20 seconds and I’m gasping for breath, seeing spots and ready to faint. Not even kidding. Just horrid. Been trying to think what other principles of mine am I ignoring by going to this event, but the first one just seems to have said it all.

What is wrong with this post? I keep writing a paragraph or an idea and then deleting it and then writing about something else and delete again. Could be because I’m very sleepy. Or because I’m watching Masterchef. The UK version. Not the proper one. I’ve no idea what’s going on though. It said it’s the first episode, but there’s only 5 contestants. The food looks good though.

Probably going to do some fun things to my hair this weekend. I’m thinking it’s spring enough to change colour again. Wheeeee!

Gluuuurrrrgh

So. You know that feeling when you’ve got a cold and it sucks? And then it turns to full blown flu and you’re like ‘Okay, could I just have the cold back now?’ and then you’ve had the flu for a couple of days and you’d look the part as one of the reindeers on Santa’s team with your red nose and it feels like your throat has been ripped open from the inside and the headaches still haven’t stopped and you’re like ‘Am I good to go now? Could I just drop dead so the suffering would end?’

But then one morning you wake up and you don’t dare to open your eyes yet, but.. could it be? Your head doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall off anymore? Fair enough, you’re still a scary snotmonster from another dimension. And your throat feels like you’d fit in well in an episode of House. But the fever is definitely gone! I’ll take it. Small steps is fine by me. Then you let out a happy sigh, sit back and relax. Just enjoy the road to recovery.

That’s where I’m at today. The past few days make me appreciate feeling even a little better.

Challenges, My life

It’s been a while

Quite a bit has happened since I last wrote here and even though it’s mostly important to just me on a personal level and would hardly interest any of you guys, whoever you may be, there have been some things that I’d like to share.

I made muffins! So now I’ve made 5/12 cupcakes/muffins this year. And it’s only March! Wahoo! I’m so on track with it it’s absolutely amazing. Ones were white chocolate and summer berries muffins and the other ones banana and yoghurt muffins. Tasted really good as well, which makes me even prouder.

I’ve also been to Estonia to see my family again and on my way back I had some time to kill in Stockholm Arlanda airport and I’ve got to say, I really don’t think I’d mind living in Sweden. What’s not to like – they’ve got humongous amounts of liquorice goodies, moomins and Pippi plus everything moose! Who wouldn’t love to have a moose mug on a moose coaster whilst donning an immaculate moose apron, oven mitt and hat. All things moose. We need more of that here, I’d say. I imagine things would be quite a bit different. Well, moosier at the very least.

SNOW! Almost forgot to let you guys know that we had snow! Like, the real stuff. On Thursday when I had a super early start (is it even legal to have to wake up at 6am?) and when I looked out of the window the ground was covered with the cold white awesomeness that we call snow. And I even got to brush it off my car! What a blissful moment that was. Everything was right in the world again. You know, snow-wise. And only until it all melted 4 hours later and turned to sludge so my feet got really wet.

By the way, my garden is going to be absolutely amazing! That’s all I can say about this now, but I’ll keep you updated. Trust me, it’s something that you won’t want to miss. And now that it’s out there I’ve got to go and actually do this. That’s how it works, right?
