As usual when I don’t have time to publish something here it is because I am extra busy. Things happening in my life that takes me away from the writing momentum I need, to be able to create. And this time the things that happened where joyful and fun. My parents have been visiting and we took a trip to Northern Zambia that we have … Continue reading Thoughts on seasons
January is finally coming to it´s end. It has felt like 90 days instead of soon 30. Everybody keeps telling me “January is always long”, but I have never really felt like that before. In Sweden I always felt it was grey, cold and dark, but February has less days and feels as grey, cold and dark. This year though, January has showed it´s true … Continue reading Monthly wrap up
It´s still raining most of the time. Today we got a little bit of sunshine and it was warmer. Not much have changed since last weeks update. We are still doing online learning and internet is slow, slower this week, the rain is still heavy and the thunders frequent. I am also still in a funk, still tired like I get no sleep. Which I … Continue reading What´s streaming?
Have been thinking about storytelling lately. The whole idea of stories and how we bring them to the world. A lot of it has to do with me studying creative writing, I guess, but it also struck me as I share more in Stories on Instagram while we are settling in here in Lusaka. Struck me, as in what stories am I telling through the … Continue reading Thinking about storytelling
On the 10th of August 2019 I decided to start a separate Instagram account to only use on what is commonly called #bookstagram. I felt a need to escape the real Instagram and maybe, sometimes the world, and all it is telling me about it self through social media like IG. I need brakes a couple of time of the year but I always felt … Continue reading One Year on #Bookstagram
The end of the year is here and it is naturally a time of contemplating what was good and bad during the year. We are also closing a decade this New Year, so much time that passed and I feel like I have hardly noticed. But our kid is turning 12 in March next year so obviously time has passed. A decade of mostly being … Continue reading An appreciating post to #bookstagram
I was supposed to write a blog post last Friday. I had the day off and the whole weekend a head, so a nice long three day weekend, but I just could not write anything on Friday. I woke up feeling terrible. Drank my coffee and watched some TV-series about deadly traumas (Critical) and then I reached for my phone to check on Instagram and … Continue reading Last Friday and beyond. Or where to start to change the narrative.
February is soon ending, and that is like the best thing. Not a fan of February. March comes with more promise of spring and warmth and the birthday of my first born. She turns 11 this year! A real tweenie. Can´t believe it, but at the same time I can, because I feel older. Since this chronic disease took me down three weeks ago, I … Continue reading Self care and books
Yesterday was a better day. Sweden won against Switzerland (no it’s not the same country), it is really warm again and I had a good meeting with my doctor. Got new medicine. Or not new really, but I am going to take injections instead of eating pills that gives me nausea and makes me vomiting. Also got injections of cortisone in my hips. Yes, it … Continue reading Vacation and world cup still on
I finished such a good book Yesterday. I started it already on vacation in March but did not really find time to dig in to it so last weekend when I was in pain and more or less spent all the time in the sofa I started again and this week I have taken every moment I could to read. Reading is something I miss … Continue reading Books!
