Happy Favourites of the Week – Family and Home

Seeing our Godson – We did a trip to Finland again just a week ago. We have this adorable little baby godson who we wanted to see, as the last time I saw him was in April. He has grown so much and nearly walks already. It was such happiness seeing him again and playing with him. Food time seemed to be the favourite messing around time. The funniest was his surprise when his mother was able to eat in peace as we took turns feeding the little cutiepie!

Seeing family – It was lovely seeing the family as well, and this time we actually managed to see people who we haven’t seen in nearly 2 years. It was so relaxing! Although, carrying suitcases home filled with presents from home was not fun… Especially after being rescheduled on flights several times.

Getting home – So when we finally got home, after being rescheduled on to 3 different flight and missing one due to a very delayed flight, I was happy to have two whole days at home to spend it with the cats and winding down from all the ‘excitement’ of travelling. When you are on the road there is nothing more than your dream of but your own home and your own bed!

Sauna – We went to the sauna way too many times for one week! But they don’t have proper sauna’s in the UK, and you can’t even imagine how relaxing it is to take a proper sauna, sweat out all your toxins and take a cooling shower after which you feel relaxed the rest of the day! I really would’ve needed one after all the problems getting back home!

Euston Station Opening Doors For Homeless – I just read an article about how Euston station, in London, is opening their doors on Christmas for the homeless to provide them with a shelter and Christmas dinner. I think it is an absolutely amazing thing to do and more places should do this. Christmas is not only for giving to your loved ones, it is taking care of those less fortunate as well! Although, I think this shouldn’t be happening only on Christmas but whole year round!

Happy Favourites of the Week – Awaiting Christmas

Cheesy Christmas Movies – Lately I’ve been really into watching cheesy Christmas movies. I do an annoyed commentary on top of almost all of the time or smirk and laugh at the poor plot, but still there is something quite comforting in them and apparently, I am still looking for something comforting at all times! I know it’s too early, but then again I don’t really feel like being in a festive spirit just yet.

My little plant corner – I already shared a picture of my plant corner at the beginning of the week and how happy it makes me, and it still does! My little succulents are loving the light and warmth in that corner and growing much faster. In addition, we got some coconut husk soil which seems to really agree with them!

Seeing my family – It’s been a while since I last saw my family and although this trip of ours is short and doesn’t even cover Christmas it is still always lovely and rejuvenating to spend some quality time with your family. And especially seeing the little Godson again, he is already growing up so fast!

Snow – I ran away from Finland because of snow and coldness during the winter. So it is funny that snow is one of my favourites this week. But snow once a year on your holiday is lovely, especially when you get this magical scenery that we had this week. But when it will melt or there is too much of it, then it starts to get less than lovely.

December – It’s finally December and I get to cheer my loved ones up with a story advent calendar, which I have made them for the couple last years. They seem to really enjoy it and it makes me want to keep going, even when I am getting stressed with writing it the closer we get to Christmas.
