It’s been a long time since being me was a real thing. Sometimes I wonder if I actually only just recently discovered what being me really means. I’m actually pretty sure that’s the case.
And still, sometimes I realize that my thoughts drift away, back to the time where I was just this young person. Where nothing else mattered but me and my thoughts. When there was nobody to look after, to take in consideration. I think back to the days where there were of course my parents and sibling and our pets. And, yes, they take up some space in your heart and thoughts. But not as much as your kids ever will.
Hey, having such a great time here that I decided to keep the party going…
And why shouldn’t I? It’s spring here and fall there, so a great reason to throw a blog party, right?
So common over, bring a friend, actually as many as you like, the more the merrier, and party with me.
There is food, there are drinks, there is music. Everything you like. There are also some house rules:
- Be nice to my fellow guests, we are a happy bunch
- Leave a link to your blog, your favorite post or a favorite post of another blogger if you like
- Mingle, chat to everyone, say hi
- Share the love, reblog this invitation. It helps me, it helps my guests and it helps you…
- If you make a mess, please clean up or at least let me know, so I can take care of it…
Now let’s get this party going, see, some are already having fun…🙂
So then let’s do just that! Let’s start the week with a positive attitude! Tell me something good!
- Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
- Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.
- Share this post and invite your followers as well.
Before we start though, think about treating yourself to something you enjoy. Like a little massage. Or a back rub. Who doesn’t like a back rub, right?
Are you enjoying it? Doesn’t it feel good? Keep enjoying it. For as long as it lasts. I think back rubs are never long enough… Another round? Sure! Go for it! Remember: You’re worth it!
And when you are ready, let me share what I’m looking forward to this week:
“Although Halloween is not as big here as it is over in the States, we still celebrate it. I know it’s still a week away but the excitement has gotten to me. This week will be about decorating the house and lots of chats with my daughter about who might dress up as what.
Although it’s on a Monday this year, we will still get to sleep in the next day as the first Tuesday of October is Cup Day and a public holiday here. It’s when horses stop a city. We will have our friends over again on Halloween, enjoying good food, great company and a round of trick or treating in the neighborhood. I love seeing the excitement in our children’s eyes when they wait for their friends to arrive, wondering what they are dressed up as and then going door to door to collect treats. Then it will be play time and for us time to sit down and relax, probably also chatting about which horse will get over the finish line first the next day.”
A beautiful piece of of art in a stunning place. The sun shining, the light reflecting in the sculpture. You look at it and the light shines so bright one moment only to be dim the next.
It was a beautiful day on one of our trips. We had a busy couple of weeks leading up to this trip and we did not even plan on visiting this spot. It was a “last minute” decision. One I’m happy we made.
Lake Tahoe is stunning and the short time we spent there was well worth it. In only a short amount of time this place gave me back so much energy. It’s for sure a place I’d love to visit again.
My daughter was convinced that fairies must live in or around this over gown leftover of what once was a tree. When we are out in the forest hiking we make up fairy stories and discover parts where they could live, bits of the forest which could be fairy houses, fairy playgrounds and so on.
Don’t you think fairies could live here? It’s a magic place. And the different shades of green against the dark wood make it even more magical. Trees standing tall, as if they were guarding a magic kingdom.
And then, just around the next corner you discover the perfect fairy house…
Wouldn’t that make for a perfect little Halloween adventure out in the forest?

“To vaccinate or not to vaccinate” at this point is probably almost as deep of a question as “to be or not to be” is. The discussion around something as “simple” as a vaccine is huge and of course the two sides clash. I say of course but to be honest, I really don’t get it.
Touching on this subject is one of the hot irons. Just like politics, religion and sex. The opinions are strong. On both sides. While the group who decides to vaccinate their children builds their argument on scientific studies the anti-vaccination movement claims as well to be able to scientifically prove how much harm can be done by getting a shot.
Take the quiz and share the result in the comments🙂
Apparently I’m ready to be an adult (phew…):
“You have common sense, and know how to get shit done. You are already thinking about the future and you have an idea about what you want for you life. Keep killing it.”
Well, sometimes I feel I’m more of a passenger than the pilot but I guess it’s true, we are in charge of what we make of our time. I hope you made most of it this week. I for sure had a great week and also read some fantastic posts which I’d like to share with you.
Have a very happy weekend you all and don’t forget to make great memories🙂
It’s been 10 years now. It doesn’t actually feel like 10 years. 10 years since I changed skin. Not in the real sense. But it kind of feels a bit like changing skin.
It’s been actually over 10 years. 10 years and 2 months to be precise, since we’ve arrived in Australia, with us our son, 3 suitcases and some carry-on. Our belongings somewhere in a container on the way to Down Under. It’s been an interesting ride.
