Well, I’ve had a week and a half of my summer holiday now. And time flies by too fast, I really don’t want this to end at all. 
It’s not like we’ve had excellent weather (it’s sunny but chilly and it really need to rain because the lawn is more yellow than green). 

I just really like being at home. I like getting to chose if I’m seeing anyone today, or if I’m not leaving the house. 

Besides, most of my friends are online (as in living in another country and not really someone you’d pop by to in an afternoon), or they live a 4h drive away, at least. 

I’m trying to figure out where all my childhood friends have gone to. And I realise I didn’t have that many close friends to begin with, three maybe? And they live ways away or I’ve completely lost touch with them. 

I’ve tried to reach out to the one living close by, but she’s so busy with her life that it’s almost impossible for us to find time. I guess she isn’t as interested in rekindling our friendship as I am. 

Ugh. I’ll just give up and cultivate whatever friendships I’ve made online. 

Hubs got me Mass Effect Andromeda a couple weeks back. It’s a very pretty game and so far I’m curious to see what the main story is about. What I have realised though, is that I’m absolutely terrible at FPS games. And I mean ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE

I can’t hit anything even if I threw the gun at them. But fuck that, I’m playing the game anyway and so far the only thing making me rage quit is a Remnant Architect. Mudderhumping three legged piece of robot shit! 

And I’m playing on Easy, so really, I shouldn’t have too much trouble. Why do I even play? Ugh. 

After lunch we’re off on a play date with the girls bffs, and I’ve made friends with the mum so I’ll be sat there drinking tea. 

Anyways, it’s breakfast time here and the horde needs feeding (if I can tear them away from YouTube and tv and other stuff that is). 

Take care, wear sunscreen, drink loads (of tea). 



I’ve worked 12 days in a row, not all of them full days, but I’ve been doing work stuffs every day (an hour here and a couple hours there, constantly thinking about work and feeling I’ve forgotten something). 

Adding the lack of sleep I’ve experienced and you have me so tired nothing is funny. 

There’s a stage when everything is funny, but I don’t know if I’m passed that or if that will come if I stay up long tonight. 

Ugh. Tiredness is the worst. 

I suppose me being tired isn’t helping this constant feeling of having missed something, feeling stressed and frankly I don’t know what to do about it all. 

Thankfully I have this weekend off (so that’s two whole days with nothing planned. Yay.). 

Tonight I was informed there’s a football game on in a few hours, so I guess the TV’s mine until then… 

Mass Effect 3 or Dragon Age Inquisition? 

Anyway, I need tea. A large cuppa tea. 


i-love-my-best-friendsI’ve started out the new year by thinking a lot about love. The love I feel for my friends and how little difference I feel there is for those I’ve known for years and those I’ve recently met. Also how many different levels there is for love, and yet it’s all the same. Am I making any sense here at all?

Some might argue and say that you can’t tell if someone online is being honest about how they portray themselves, but to be frank: can you say that the people you meet face to face are completely what you see? I’ve experienced (both online and irl) how people seem one way when we first meet but then after a while show me sides of themselves that I have a difficulty accepting. And I do try to accept people for what they are, but there are things I cannot disregard (disrespecting others in any way, racism, sexism, etc…) and that leaves me no choice but to stop seeing them.

It hurts. Every time.

Luckily I’ve not had to drop anyone for quite some time (maybe I’ve stopped attracting douches?).

Inquisition_heraldry_DA2At the moment I’m fully submerged in Dragon Age Inquisition (WHAT AN AWESOME GAME!!!). If I’m not mistaken there’s only one or two main missions before it’s all over, but there are sooo many little assignments left and I WANT TO DO THEM ALL! We’ll see how this goes, I’m itching to make a new character, but I’ve promised myself to finish the game with the one I have (so many new things to explore with another character… sooooo many new things!).

This time I’ve romanced Commander Cullen (adorbs – ADORBS!), but since my next character is going to be Elven I’m going to give Solas a go. I’m ready to go wrestle hubby for the TV, right now, and switch from football to Xbox. But I’m nice (and I’ve already played some today, but that’s really of no importance… hehehe).

Anyhow, another year full of new things and old, and great things and not so great things, and life and death, and love. Always full of love.



It’s perfectly clear that Autumn is here and that school has started, the kids have been taking turns in being ill the last couple of days. Today it’s my son and my youngest daughter who both have a fever and need to stay home for at least a day.
It was my turn to take a day off from work and care for them, which I don’t mind since my new job isn’t as unforgiving about this as my last one was… if they need to stay at home tomorrow my husband will deal with it (it’s nice when taking turns works).

I got my hair sorted the other day, just a cut because I can live with having 10 cm or more of my natural colour showing (I really didn’t feel like sitting there for over two hours on a Saturday) and it’s not such a big difference in colour anyway.

Anyhow, I need to keep a close eye on Pumpkin, she keeps turning the Xbox off when my son’s playing Animalkinect. Extremely annoying and very difficult… she’s only 2 years old and just laughs when I tell her off (argh!).


ImageApparently I have (well, we ALL have) some kind of rocks or crystals in the ear. When these go on vacation in some other area than where they should be, it causes a sense of dizziness and vertigo. I experienced this two years ago (when last pregnant), then it continued for about two weeks (and was a lot worse). I’ve now felt dizzy and slightly sick for two days, it’s not as bad as it was the first time, but man… it SUCKS big time! It helps to move your head from side to side, even better if you lie down, so that’s what I do (even though the dizziness gets even worse as soon as I sit or lie down). Since it’s not as bad as last time, I’m hoping it’ll pass soon (or I won’t be able to work at all this week, too bad. Too baaaaaad.)

We have a national holiday this week, Wednesday is May 1st and we all get time off from work (unless you work, then you’re at work). Next week we have another holiday on Thursday, meaning that we all get Friday off as well. I do so like May in Sweden…

Tomorrow I have an appointment at the hospital. Five years ago I was diagnosed with skin cancer, they removed the afflicted mole and I’ve been on regular checkups ever since. I find it kinda ironic that I, who smothered myself in sunscreen and was ever so careful, got skin cancer. After reading a poster at the hospital I found that out of 12 things listed I hit 10 spot on (blonde, green eyes, always red first then tanned, many moles etc etc.).

So peoples! Listen up: Skin Cancer is NOT all it’s jacked up to be. Be careful when you’re in the sun and stay in the shade between 11 am – 3 pm (that’s when the sun’s rays do the most damage).

Anyhow, I’m taking my dizzy self and playing some Kinect Adventures with the kids. Moving about is so much better than resting.
