I am in fact still alive and kicking. But I have been very busy and a bit stressed lately. In addition to being a very busy time of year in general I have been traveling a bit both with work and privately. Hopefully I will have some time to update you more on this soon.
As if things was not busy enough now, I decided that I wanted to buy a bigger place and I have put my beloved little appartment up for sale. Had I fully realize how much work this would be I’m not sure I would have done it. For those who want to see where I live here is a link to the add.
Hope all that all of you are doing well.
Last week I wasn’t feeling too well and had to stay in bed for a couple of days with a fever. So this weekend I did not have much planned a part from relaxing and sleeping. But then came Friday and a friend of mine was going in to town and asked if we could meet up for a curry and a beer. She had a ferry to reach at ten o’clock so I thought I might as well be a little social this weekend even if I was not up for a big party. We had a nice evening but by the time I came home I was very tired and went straight to bed.
On Saturday I actually managed to sleep in a bit and I did some much needed tidying up in the apartment and ran some errands. In the evening another friend asked if I wanted to come to the movies with her and after the film we went out for a couple of drinks at a friends cocktail bar. The movie was good and the company and drinks was excellent. But once again I managed to be sensible and get home quite early so I didn’t ruin the next day.
Sunday was very Sunday-like. I stayed in read some blog posts, participated in #Sundayblogshare. I continued cleaning my apartment and have finally begun some much needed de-cluttering work. Today, Monday I woke up at 03.30, so I imagine this day will end earlier than planned, but I hope I will be a good girl and continue the work I started over the weekend this week.
Hope you all had a weekend as good as mine.
Today is the first day of a new month. August is the last of the summer months. This month will bring a lot of different things both at work and private. One of the things I will be doing is going to a friends wedding and visiting a new country. And I am really looking forward to it. I had some vacation in June and I am ready to have a few more days in August.
A new months feels like a clean sheet of paper just waiting for me to fill it in. And hopefully this months writing will be very good.
Last months went by very quickly and it feels like this summer is trying to run as fast as it can and that it will be over almost as soon as it begin. Luckily I have a busy, but exiting fall ahead. And I feel ready to grasp the opurtunities that come my way.
So what do you want to fill your blank August page with?

What was the most popular post on your blog in 2016?
Being back in the blogging world made me realise just how much I enjoy it. Even after such a long break I have been welcomed back with open arms by good friends. That is just such a wonderful feeling. I didn’t realise how much I missed all of you until I came back. Well, better late than never.
Photo taken earlier this year. I find it quite peaceful.
So I have started to update myself on what has been happening on your blogs since I’ve been away. I am sure that I will miss quite a lot of great posts, but a lot of them I’ll get to read and enjoy. I woke up quite early this morning, made a cup of coffee, crawled back in bed and started reading blog posts.I most say it’s been a very enjoyable morning so far!
If you have any good posts I might have missed in my absence, feel free to post the link in the comment section. I’m going to treat myself to spending quite some time in the wonderful world of blogging this weekend.
As you might have noticed I have taken a very long leave of absence. This was not planned so I could not warn an of you, because I had no idea it would be happening. Have no fear, I am ok, but there has just been so many things going on these months that I have struggled wrapping my head around. I have not been able to write anything because my head has been in quite a state of chaos. So much so that I have not managed organising my mind by writing it down.
All the things that has been going on has been both bad and good and, as I said, has left me in a quite chaotic state. But I am slowly getting to organise my mind and I’m back to bug all of you with my rambles yet again. That is if there are any of you left. If you have left my blog I can’t say I blame you. As you won’t be here to read this you won’t hear me say that I’m sorry. But for those of you that see this I hope you’ll accept this apology for me leaving you.
I hope I find most of you well and I will do my best to catch up with all that has happened on your blogs since I took a hiatus from the wonderful world of blogging.
I’ve been nominated for quite some awards that I have failed to respond to. I feel honoured every time someone nominates me. I just can’t seem to be able to do this award thing and I have therefore decided to give awards a miss on this blog. I want all the people nominating me to know have appreciated the nominations that you have sent my way and that the reason I have not responded to any of them is not do to any ill will on my part. I’m just not very good with them.
I’ve also had the hounor of being put an a great list! Check out lifestyle links at it’s good to be crazy sometimes:
Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend!
