Stuck at home

The episode with the broken smartphone, part deux… Now, the two weeks of radio silence that followed by having a broken smart phone was not the worst part of it all. During this time, I actually managed to misplace the phone’s memory card! No memory card means no contacts, no music, no photos – no …

Radio silence

My phone broke down a few weeks back. All of a sudden the touch screen didn’t react to anything any longer, which meant that I couldn’t even backup my data. Argh! But luckily I still had a few weeks left of the warranty, so I marched into a phone store the very next day to …

A blogging mom

My efforts of getting my blog up-and-running keeps hitting against reality. Today I had the brilliant idea of “just quickly” writing a new blog post in the day time. This is how it turned out: 14:45 Create title and 1st sentence. Get interrupted from child no 1 about playing time. Play with child. 16:25 Sit …

Alice in Wonderland

Pähler Schlucht

I thought that natural forests no longer exist in the rural Germany. But how wrong was I! Having stumbled upon one just recently, I felt like being Alice from Wonderland, who fell through the rabbit hole. One minute we are standing on the crowded parking lot of the Pähler Golf Club, and the next minute …

Optimisation of parenthood?

Fetching flowers

As a mom from two young, adorable children, I am experiencing almost daily situations when both children need my undivided attention. It can be that the children come into a quarrel or a fight about something, and there you are standing helpless, not knowing who started it, and who did what. Or it can be …

My place on earth?

Every once in a while, I get overwhelmed with the question whether we all have a place of our own in this world, and what makes this place feel like home compared to any other? Is it the culture, to which you feel connected to? Is is the city or village in which you live …

In a country with a population of 5+ Million, it may come to many as a surprise that a few of these actually speak swedish as a mother tongue. Having roots in the history of the 16th century, when Finland was a part of the Swedish kingdom, a small minority still stubbornly sees the language …
