Holiday in Finland – I can’t say it is a holiday whenever I visit Finland because the schedule is almost even busier than at home and all the energy is used on socialising with people who you haven’t seen in at least 6 months. This time was the same. Within the first 7 days, we had visited 7 different cities. There were summer parties, surprise visits and more coffee breaks than I would normally do in a month. Still, it is worth it to see all the people we love and by the end of the week, we got to spend very relaxing mid-summer without any extra hassle.
Dry oat and seed bread – My mum made me try them and I am hooked! Too bad I only brought 3 packs with me home. They will be finished soon!
Great catsitter – When we are away for a long time I am always stressed about how the cats are doing. It is always tough going on any holidays and leaving them by themselves when they are so affectionate and like being in people’s company. So having a catsitter who reports everything about them with a bunch of pictures is calming! And coming back home to cats who are not mad at you is even better!
Big Little Lies Theme Song – The song by Michael Kiwanuka suits the show well, but is also a pleasure to listen!
HBO – My brother loaned me his logging details for while we were in Finland and we managed to watch Big Little Lies, which I had been dying to watch for ages, and we finished the second season of the Westworld. Big Little Lies wasn’t quite as good as the hype around it, but still interesting and the ending was so satisfying!
Pirate Women – I recently started reading a book about women who were pirates. It writes about the largely unknown women who were pirates to show the hidden information we didn’t know about the history and about the fascinating lives of pirates. I am hooked already, and I’m only in chapter two!
Friends Trivial Pursuit – I and my friends love playing various quiz games, which has probably come apparent on the blog and Trivial Pursuit is definitely one of the games we play on a regular basis. So it is quite obvious that we run out of questions (or rather have played it so many times we remember all the questions) and we’ve had to start acquiring new ones. I like buying bite size boxes of questions because they take up less space and I don’t have any need for a whole new game. We’ve had versions on Harry Potter and the Big Bang Theory for ages now, but what I’ve been looking for for years has been Friends. And you should’ve seen how happy I was when I finally found them! It’s going to be endless questioning time with these now!
Summer Weather – It’s been very uncommon weather in Scotland this summer. We’ve had such a heat wave that the people have started to complain, which I find funny, as usually, I hear in the autumn ‘how poor the summer was’ when they’ve enjoyed two weeks of sun. Well, they can’t say that this summer!
How was your week?
Obviously, all of this happened in more than a week’s time and I am considering changing this topic to a Happy Favourites of the Month. Let me know what you think of the change!
