You know the feeling when the alarm rings and you can’t even budge? This is how my mornings have been lately- my body stiff with exhaustion, my limbs aching and my head throbbing with pain. It’s your own fault, I sometimes tell myself, but then it isn’t really, it’s just how this line of work is, either too much or too little to do. A lawyer colleague of mine put it well when I asked him the casual “How’s it going?” and he replied “It’s going to hell, all right”. Haha!
Good old Bucharest! I hadn’t been home since October, I was planning a trip in February, but then a trial came up and I postponed it, just to get the flue and succumb to it for 3 whole weeks. In the meantime both Diana and my brother got the chicken pox and so in the end I was lucky to stay away, ’cause I can’t remember having had it as a child. In the end we decided to go together for the Protestant Easter, since it’s a bank holiday and we both had some time off.
In December, back when I was planning this short getaway to Amsterdam, traveling mid-March seemed like a really good idea. I mean we were drinking fizzy drinks in the sun in Oslo this time last year, so who would have thought Europe would be swept by such a wave of cold temperatures? Not me. That being said, I’ve never been so freezing cold as I’ve been this past few days in my entire life, walking around purposeless, through the hoards of tourists, trying to keep my spirits up when all I wanted to do was stay inside our cosy airbnb and drink mulled wine.

There’s something wrong with my WordPress (or my Mac) and I have 0 technical skills, so I’m trying from my phone. My long absence is due to a long sick period- the flue followed by throat infection and a general indisposition- as well as a “fuck the world” attitude on account of this 5 months’ winter! I’m not kidding you! 5 months and it’s not yet over! 😫🙈 Apparently this weekend is getting cold again, but I don’t care, since I’m escaping to Amsterdam and then Romania for the Protestant Easter. And maybe NY or Fuerteventura in May!
This May is funny, we had a whole week of sunshine and now it’s back to grey and freezing days. But we’re hanging on, spring is here although we’re still wearing scarves, just look at the trees!
Although I’d taken my camera with me, I didn’t snap one picture in four days. In fact, I didn’t even bother to take it out of my luggage. The weather has been beyond crappy, so the insta pics will have to do. 🙂 Continue reading
Yupi yey! The weather’s been amazing these last couple of days and, as if I’d grown a pair of wings, I’ve managed to be both efficient and happy. Or manic, if you will. 😉 That would probably cover them both. 😉 Haha! Continue reading
I’m ready for spring! It comes as no surprise that I’m not a fan of winter- dark, cold and yucky, sometimes all three in one bite. I long for brighter days and fewer clothes on my back. Everything itches, from wool to merino and cashmere, it’s like my skin has had it with all this covering it up in layers!
I can barely believe it, spring is finally here! You have no idea how long I´ve been waiting for it, walking around in tiny jackets and freezing my b* off! But yesterday it finally came to town! Continue reading
How are you all? I´ve been busy paying bills and making amends with my reckless living for the past five months. Y-ha!
On the other hand I haven´t been this good in ages. I work (although that chapter´s been a bit skimpy), I take my Sammy out for walks in the sun- the weather was amazing yesterday and we enjoyed it in the Botanical garden, I go to coffee dates with my other freelance friends, to the cinema- saw El Club yesterday (wouldn´t recommend it, though), I cook real meals, read books, watch House of Cards and socialize. 😉 And otherwise float on a big pinkish cloud. 😉Sakura in Oslo. 😉 How beautiful is this? I feel alive again every time spring awakens mother nature. 😉Party version of me. 😉Me and my bud, squinting in the sun. BLISS!
Coffee never tasted better than on this stone, in the woods, after walking for an hour or so. 😉Found me a toy!Picked some flowers.Met an Eurasier. So cute! ❤
