Still caught up

I'm on chapter 10 in the 4th book of the Premonition series, Incendiary. Last one. So, to make this entry short yet informative, I'm surrounded by my favourite things while tucked under a blanket on our couch!


My Kindle, my favourite chocolate and a cup of hot water! I know, a caffè latte had been even better, but my tummy disagrees with my tastebuds when it comes to coffee!


So, there you have it! My happy place this evening! And a snapchat-moment to end the entry with! Always wanted green eyes when growing up, it felt more unique and special than my blue ones.

Lost in the world of celestial beings

I'm totalt lost in the world created by Amy A. Bartol, in "The Premonition Series". And I know, I shouldn't be reading at all! I should be writing! But I started reading the first book in the serie on Friday night, and then I was hooked. I'm now finishing of book three, "Indebted", and though loving Amy Bartols writing, this book is making me super mad over and over again! Even to the point of throwing the book in the garbage, but I hang in there and hope that the writer got her stuff togheter when writing so that the main character Evie (half human, half angel) doesn't continue on making stupid decisions! If not, I'm going to take back all the praise for this series! ;)


I love reading stories with angels and the combat between good and evil! And these books are filled with that! And magic! And love! And doubt! All kinds of emotions really! And power angels, fallen angels, archangels, reapers and other beings from near and far! ;)

So I'm ending this rainy Tuesday by finishing this book while tucked in bed! A perfect night! :)

Reminders

When sitting at my desk missing mini-me terribly, I just have to lift my eyes from the screen and look at the drawings she left me when visiting my office last. <3


As you can see (!), it's a spider at the top, and me middle left, and then something, something at the bottom. Might be a map, but then again it can be something entirely different too! Only the artist can tell! ;)


And this would be a giant if I remember correctly! Painted on my white board. ;)

A cats life

Today I had our youngest cat, Morris, neutered. Poor thing! But I do believe it's the best thing for her. She wasn't super happy when in heat just the other week, and she lost a lot of weight which she really didn't need as she was skinny to begin with.


I tried to follow the instructions when we got home, that is the vets instructions, like putting her in a dark room with as little sounds and other distractions as possible. So I put her in the guest room and pulled down the curtains so it would be dark and gave her a bowl with water. And she totally lost it when I closed the door! Screaming like crazy! So I took her out again and let her brother join her and she calmed down immediately! Cutie! <3


High as a house, but happy to be home. And the incision is really small and nicely stitched!

She also got a chip in her neck (identification) and a vaccination, so in a week or so both her and her brother will be able to go out on their own. Scary, but I guess they'll love it! And I will too, as long as they come back home again! <3

Now I have to put mini-me to bed. She's really concerned and worried about Morris, so she'll probably have a hard time saying good night to her today! Sweet thing!

Odd Molly designs

I just had to let you in on a competition I were introduced to today. I love the clothing line, Odd Molly (swedish brand), and entering this competition you stand a chance of winning swimwear from their 2016's collection! I found several favourites, so I just had to enter. You could do to, just click your way there, here!

You can find Odd Molly's collections and webshop here!

Now, Games of Thrones! Finally a new season!

Evening walk

Last night we took a walk before mini-me was off to bed. Well she biked, and we walked (and ran occasionally).


We walked passed the street, and house, where we lived prior to this house. It felt kind nice to see the house again, which we renovated totally! It was long due as the man from whom we bought it had done almost nothing to it since he bought it 1977. So we had original wallpaper and floors from 1977 in all the rooms! Orange, green and brown. Not my cup of tea! And a lot of plastic! I get that plastic was hot back then, even as building materials, but my God! Even the skirting (baseboards) and doorposts and window frames were plastics (dark brown)! And the door handles! We did all the renovating by our selves (with huge help from family and friends), and we don't really want to go through that again. It almost had us broken down! So this move, and the renovation of the apartment, will be handled by craftsmen and not us. Well minor things we can do, but not the major thingys, like changing the floors and kitchen.

Mini-me and her dad just left for the weekly tennis lesson, and I'm planning on doing nothing (besides preparing lunch). I'm taking her to the swimming lesson later this afternoon, and after that I plan on continue on doing nothing at all. Reading, most likely. I need to load the batteries with energy for next week! I have a busy week ahead!

The apartment

In about four months we're moving from our house. It's with really mixed emotions we're planning this move as we both love our house and the freedom a house brings, especially regarding mini-me and her getting outside to play by her own. In the city she'll not be allowed out by her self for a couple of years. But! This move is brought on by our familys joint need to have as much quality time together as possible. As my husband commute to Stockholm each day he/we loose at least two hours a day where he could be home with us instead of travelling on a bus to get to us. And, I'll also have a shorter drive to work and will surely gain up to 30-45 minutes of driving time a day by the move. But, on the other hand we'll loose the closeness to my sister with family (now like 200 meters from home), which kind of hurts, but we'll make sure to meet up with them on a regular basis! And mini-mes best friend, Emilia, and "boyfriend", Moltas! But we will keep in contact! And Moltas mother is also a really close friend of mine and I will never let the distance between us in miles keep us apart! <3

Anyway, the move will happen and it will work out just fine! For everyone!

This is the apartment we bought.


Built in 2008. The pictures from the prospects from the real estate agent, so the quality will not be good. Sorry about that.


With three bedrooms ("sovrum" in Swedish). The kitchen island ("köksö") is a no keep! Well, actually, almost everything is a no keep for this picky lady! ;)


The kitchen is goner! Don't like it, at all! And the door to the left is going to be change into a more beautiful one. And behind it we'll have a pantry. Todays owner uses it as a office/storage room, but we'll change that. And the parquet floors will be changed as well.


You really have to look passed the interiors of the previous owners when house hunting! I kind of have a problem with that, and maybe that is why this buy has taken so long!

Here are some inspiration pictures I've used to plan our renovations of the apartment. The kitchen cabinets will be light grey. The tile white. And the tap in brass. All pictures below are borrowed from Pinterest.


The bench will be in Carrara marble, just like this!


We'll have a few cupboards over the bench, but keep it mostly open like in this picture. With the pantry we won't need a lot of cupboard space.


Love these taps! Brass is so beautiful!


And the Carrara marble, just exquisite!


Can't wait to see the kitchen when done!


I'm not sure of what wood/colour to choose for the parquet yet. I'm thinking light grey or white.


So I have to think about them for a while. All I know is that it won't be oak, like we have today (not by my choice). I get that it's practical and suits most people, but I just find them boring.

All the walls will be white (they aren't today) and the bathrooms doesn't need much attention (thankfully), we'll just change the bathtub and that's it I think. So there you have it! I think it's going to be great, don't you!


But for now I'm going back to my Kindle! No writing yet today! ;)

Promises, promises

My best friend reminded me today that I have promised you that I would turn the table around and write a whole lot this week whilst my hubby were in Prague. Well, I usually keep my promises, but this time I just might fail. Big time! But! There's still two days left of this week so if I make an effort either tonight (not happening I need sleep), or tomorrow or Sunday. Highly unlikely, I'll give you that, but I'll try my best! ;)

And speaking of promises, I think I might have promised you more details yesterday regarding us buying a new apartment. Well, we actually signed the contract for it early this evening. It's a three bedroom apartment, located in the city of Uppsala, about a five minute bike ride to the train station. It's on the second floor with two balconies and two bathrooms. We're going to do extensive renovations, like changing the floors, the wallpaper/repaint the walls/exchange tiles, change the doors, put in a new kitchen with new appliances and put in a tiled floor in the entrance hall. Well, we won't do any of it I guess, the hired craftsmen will. And if everything goes according to plan, we will move there in the beginning of September. I have a lot of ideas regarding the interior design, and I'll show you pictures of them in a later entry on the blog. Our first focus now though, is selling the house! :)


Well, truth be told, "first thing" is actually getting me some sleep! I'm exhausted! I guess reading all night does that to you! Four hours of sleep is clearly not enough for this girl! And obviously I've yet to realize I'm not twenty anymore! ;)

Giggly girl

I lay awake reading to almost three in the morning last night. I know how stupid that is, but when I read (and write for that matter) I get completely lost in the world created by the words written, and often lose track of time and everything else around me. Like tonight, and I'm paying for it right now! My head feels stuffed with cotton and my eyes stings.


I love snapchats filters, especially on days like this! ;)

But, the funny thing about being tired is that you also get kind of giggly! Things get kind of funnier to you, although others may fail to see the funny part! So, here I am, one hour left of work today, and 95 minutes left until I see my husband again after five days apart! And an hour or so after that we'll sign the contract for our new apartment! I'll try to stay awake during it all! ;)

Laters babes!
