Happy New Year!
2018 is here! And I’m ready for it 🙂
I’ve never really been consistent or dedicated when it comes to setting New Year’s resolutions. Then last year I heard a lot of talk about scrapping resolutions and going with goals instead. So I decided to give that a go. But, to be honest that didn’t really work for me either. Instead of setting resolutions I tried to set goals that were perhaps a little too far out of reach, or that I wasn’t really that committed to achieving. Continue reading “2018 – Let’s do this!”
October 4th is Kanelbullar Dag in Sweden. A Kanelbullar for those who aren’t familiar with the Swedish pastry, is the most delicious Cinnamon Bun ever! Since moving here two years ago I have eaten plenty of these bad boys and I never get sick of them.

No rushing allowed on Sunday mornings around here! Then I like to head back to the couch with another cuppa and a good book. I try not to sleep in on Sundays so that I can get the most out of the relaxing day. Continue reading “Book Review: Us by David Nicholls”
I like to read books that make me feel good. That doesn’t necessarily mean that the book itself has to have a happy, feel good story. In fact, usually for me it’s the opposite. It just means that I need to find it enjoyable. I’m not particularly worried if a book is well written or isn’t, I’m more concerned about whether I’m engaged in the story.
