Oysters and champagne

Life begins at 40. Everything prior to that is called research. So, hey, let’s kick the shoes off and enjoy life!  I have lost count when it comes to work hours, but they are many. So I decided to take an ordinary day off and do something different. I had plans in mind but a…

Straya, mate!

20 years since this photo was taken in the most beautiful city in the world, along with Melbourne obviously. So when I decided to have four consecutive, long weeks off work the decision where I would spend these golden weeks wasn’t too hard. Best way to celebrate my 40th birthday is among friends down under!…

Back in business

  I reckon I got a bit overzealous about this new year. So many ideas and plans, books to read, horses to ride, places to see. I was….still am…high on life! One month later the flu decked like someone up there said ”hold your horses, will ya? You ain’t twenty anymore.Stop acting like a cheetah on…

Long, lazy weekend

Four.Long.Days.Off.  And I have absolutely no idea how to use this sacred stint. This morning my aching back suggested a horizontal position all weekend. 15 minutes later I literally rolled out of bed. I went to see a naprapath a couple of months ago. My back looks like a curved banana why she suspects a…

Inferno 

Whenever I can and feel the urge to unwind I rent a movie or three. Uhm, yes I still go to a store, choose a couple of DVD’s and pay for them. Very obsolete manner, I know, for someone who is otherwise pretty up to date when it comes to technology. For the last two…

Alice is here! 

Breaking news!  Early this morning the stork delivered my youngest cousin. The baby girl is named Alice and she planned her arrival just perfectly. Tora, her big sister, turns 9 today, so the girls share birthday. She called me this morning and was over the moon, obviously. Very convenient, I must say.  I happened to…

Göteborg

       Friday. I don’t usually work Fridays so the fact that I’ll be on duty today will most surely mess with my brain about day it is, say tomorrow. The alarm went off at 5.45 a.m this morning and tired after a night with a little less sleep than desired. Just because my brain…

Ego boost

Over the years I have been a frequent face in media and when I dispersed the numerous articles I have been involved in they covered my big coffee table. So, I admit I possess a faint streak of vanity. The feeling of achieving something and subsequently get attention in media is highly satisfactory. After a couple…

The Great Turnaround

                       A couple of years ago I commenced on what I call my great turnaround. It was not a turnaround really, I just diverted from my current route that had nothing to offer me. I need constant personal development to stay mentally healthy and I…

Crossroads 

      Long time, no see, eh? I thought l’d blow the dust and arachnoid web off this baby and give blogging a go again. The reason for my hiatus is not lack of motivation or topics, no. During my uhm, let’s call it cerebral spring cleaning, I stashed my English vocabulary somewhere else,…

Flat out as a lizard drinking

  So many thoughts running through my head right now and I feel a certain frustration that I don’t know how to act upon them.Or whether I should. I have got plans, so many of them! I seem to get some structure back into my life. The car has undergone some major repairing (I could…

Old friends

It is mid-September and among all the thoughts and reflections I try to wring the last drops of Summer before the Autumn mercilessly takes over. I love beautiful Autumn days when the air is clear, crisp and blue. To dress in oversized jumpers, snuggle up next to the kittehs and wrap the hands around an embarrassingly…
