If you fancy curling up with my latest blog post, ‘Notes from the Aga’ and a cup of tea on this cold, autumn night then simply follow the link in my profile and enjoy. X

I’ve finally started my next blog post despite being distracted by kitchen linens and cyclamen! It’s truly astounding hope much time I can waste just moving stuff around and rearranging things!

I’ve managed to do quite a bit of writing on the next blog post today but now it’s time to kick back with a bowl of something scrumptious.

My friend @sarahjnewton came to see me yesterday (though secretly I think she comes to see the Duck, Dog and Cat-Face) so I made cheese scones. ‘Hang on!’ I said when she reached to take one. ‘They would make a good Instagram photo.’ So that’s what we did yesterday. Sat in front of the fire, chatted Instagram and the state of the internet and ate cheese scones. It was rather lovely.

I can hear chatting and laughter coming from the kitchen. My best friend is here for the weekend with my beautiful goddaughter. My husband is making the coffee and Emily and Eliza (who are only 5 days apart in age) are catching up, giggling and gossiping as 16 year olds should. At this moment in time, I have everything I need in this world.

It's a misty start to the day. I was awake at 6am walking around the field and the red apples on the trees were like beacons in the darkness. I'll be picking the ones I can reach later. ❤️🍎

That's all folks!
Although I'll miss the camaraderie of my former colleagues and the enthusiasm of the children, I am looking forward to sleeping a whole night through and not waking up at 3am, panicking because I forgot to photocopy the class challenge for Soft Start!!

I just can't not take a photo when I see a good pile of wood. .

A while back I asked you to shoot some questions at me on my stories, and promised to give you some answers. I got lots of interesting questions, and thought I'd answer a few of them on this lovely quiet Sunday evening, so here goes...
.
Where are you from exactly? I'm from near Oulu, Finland, around 300 km south of the Arctic Circle.

What is your job? I'm a teacher in middle school.

What is the best decision you ever made? To go talk to my husband despite the fact that I had never even seen him before.

What things make you the happiest? Spending time with family. Coffee and candles. Nature. And great books, of course!

What dreams / goals in life do you have? To be honest, I have no big dreams or goals. I like going with the flow. All I can really think of is traveling, and that's surely something we often dream about.

What are the best and worst things about life in Finland? The best is proper winter for sure! I can't think of anything too bad at all, life's pretty good around here.

From where do you get your inspiration for your photographs? Mostly from just seeing something that catches my fancy somewhere around me. But Instagram and Pinterest are also great sources of inspiration.

What apps / filters do you use to edit your photos? I use VSCO, and mainly filters A9, J1 or J2.

A huge thank you to everyone who sent me questions! I'll be replying more of them sometime this month, and even more questions are welcome. 😊

My girl learning about the delights of baking. I know the stars are a bit 🎄🎄but it's her favourite shape to use!

The old Barbie movies still give me some nice vibes.
You can never start being in the Christmas spirit too early, let’s be honest, Christmas is awesome 💁🏻‍♀️
Hard work means something different for everyone. We just gotta find our own kind and do it.
✨Today I’m grateful for Mirva’s (@ofsimplicity) stories ‘cause man, I can finally hear how that Finnish snow sounds like when you walk on it and it’s glorious 😳

Did you know?
.
I can feel you.
.
You're no longer how you used to be,
.
You're bored.
.
Of me,
.
Of us,
.
Of you loving me.
.
I can see it,
.
I can feel it.
.
My voice is empty for you now,
.
My image is blank for you now.
.
Discovering me isn't for you anymore,
.
I'm not fascinating to you anymore,
.
You see me faded now.
.
My words,
.
My feelings,
.
Are nothing to you now.
.
You're done.
.
Aren't you?
.
When you laid eyes on me I told you,
.
I told you that you'll end up ruined,
.
I told you to not want me.
.
But you didn't listen,
.
And you fell in love,
.
And I fell in love,
.
I,
.
The brown eyed devil.
.
I fell in love
.
And
.
I forgot about what was going to happen.
.
I loved you,
.
And
.
I loved the idea of you.
.
Your voice calmed down everything inside me.
.
I was so in love that I didn't realised,
.
Believe me, I didn't realised,
.
I was destroying you,
.
Slowly,
.
Slowly,
.
And I didn't realised,
.
Until love started dripping out of you,
.
Leaving you empty.
.
And I cried,
.
And I endured
.
The indifference,
.
In the same shade as the one
.
I gave you
.
Without realising.
.
I,
.
The brown eyed devil.

Today’s #thetodaymoment
Sometimes the things that seem easy, might not be and the things that seem complicated might be easy. And I should stop assuming and just try and see.
Talking about my own person and describing myself can be sooo difficult sometimes.
Accepting and appreciating your qualities is important and it’ll make you very happy and content in the long run.
✨Today I’m grateful for my small but very important progress when it comes to calming myself down when I’m angry. .

Yesterday evening I had this urge to plan, to put on paper what I have to do for the remaining days of the week (which I try to keep small, two-three things per day, what I have to write, what I have to draw, what I have to edit and cleaning. I don’t like to write down every little thing, plus, it would startle my mind and I would just end up reading a manga or something 😅). But, for a moment there I thought “What’s the point in making a spread only for four days? Doesn’t it have to be nice looking, with all 7 days? That’s how it should be.” And the thing is, it doesn’t have to be like that, I mean you’re going to live those four days and you’re gonna have to do stuff and if you feel like planning them or making a spread, go for it.

Sometimes we tend to believe that we have to follow some rules that most of the time don’t exist. So, just make that thing your own and have fun with it ✨

P.S.: That’s a very loose dress and I’m saying this just because I noticed just now all that fabric tummy 😂

Today’s #thetodaymoment
Everyone needs friends, everyone. We were not meant to be alone.
Talking to someone you haven’t seen in years is so interesting, you can see how much they’ve changed.
Accepting your talent and working hard at it it’s almost all the time the best way to live. ✨Today I’m grateful for my idols, for giving me someone to look up to and making me understand that if they could do it, I can do it, and that hard work always pays off.
For the times I spend with my brother talking and laughing.

Let it be...
.
I wanted myself angel in your arms.
Beautiful, passionate and kind.
.
I wanted...
.
I'm the demon held by my beloved angel, held by the only one in this universe who would never betray me.
.
At the beginning of all, the Universe gave me a choice.
.
Whose soul would stay untainted, whose mind would be clear and heart kind?
.
I would've been your angel, my love, and you, my sweet devil.
But you, you would've suffered terrible, these sleepless nights would've been yours, this pain I feel crawling under my skin and this dark heart...
.
Let it be...
.
Be my beloved angel, I'll be your sweet devil.
.
And I'll carry your suffering too.

Believing in yourself and seeing yourself capable of succeding doesn’t make you full of yourself. It makes you a confident person.
Being an artist is not something to feel ashamed of, we were not all born to be scientists and that’s ok, we need both sides for a complete world. ✨Today I’m grateful for the fact that I realised that there’s nothing wrong in celebrating and appreciating myself and my achievements.

There is something so fundamentally reaffirming about holding an actual photograph. A small printed square that captures a time or loved one validates us and reminds us of the journey we have had so far and the people we’ve shared it with. I’ve now taken to printing off my photos using @inkifi_instagram and hanging them around the home. I love the effect; the way I can see my own adventures and remember those fleeting moments that shaped and defined me.

As we have rain today I am posting a very sunny postcard from Southwold ... from our walk on Sunday. A truly wonderful day with such a magical light and that delicious autumny smell. Hard to believe that about twenty minutes later the sky had changed to grey and we had rain! •

Two years ago we began our story together. The pages keep turning and we keep writing down all our adventures. Always dreaming about how we will fill up the rest of the blank pages to come. I can't wait for our next chapter to start together, my love ❤
