Back home from her daughter’s Senior Dance and it was so amazing!
My little princess is all grown now. Capable, strong. With the innocent, perfect beauty of youth – soul and skin.
Ah – to be young again and know how to appreciate it!
To be honest, Anna is feeling quite young herself. She is careful, works out, eats right. The lower-carb lifestyle makes her feel extra energetic.
In fact, she’s feeling so pigg (alert in Swedish) that she starts cleaning the house around midnight.
It’s good to do things a day earlier than planned – how very Finnish of her.
That way one can enjoy more free time the next day. Multi-tasking is fun, too, so she answers Christian’s messages.
2:20 Oh, you have great memory. Amazing.
Phew. I thought I was going mad!
Yes, English muffins.
Yum. You have excellent taste.
You like cakes? Maybe I could bake something quick and easy.
Sure. But I don’t have a sweet tooth. What is your speciality?
Korvapuusti. Literal translation: a slap on the ear.
Hahaha. Ouch!! I felt that.
They’re actually the best cinnamon buns in the world. A Finnish recipe. What tea do you usually drink? English people drink a lot of tea! How can one be that thirsty?
2.21 Haha. Yes. Decaf. Also like camomile, peppermint – Chinese tea too. White, no sugar.
My mom always complains that the ones over here are not as good as there.
Well…. I did notice. Not much choice.
There’s an Intense Mint sort that is wonderful. Maybe you could bring a stash of your own tea to keep some in my flat. How intimate is that, huh? 😊
Should be drinking champagne but don’t want to make you feel bad.
Why champagne, what’s the occasion? And I won’t feel bad…
A glass to celebrate meeting you.
Ah, that’s too sweet. Now you’ll have to bring it. And I’ll have a glass with you. Celebrate meeting you!
Champagne and English muffins. A good combination. 😊
2.31 Tomorrow – wow. About 40h from now. 😊 Hey, you’ll never ever guess what I’m doing. But I’ll give you three tries.
Guess 2. Cleaning.
No. Already done with that. 😊
Guess 3. Drawing a picture?
No, no, no – too many guesses already! 😊
2.36 Not staying awake at this time for selfies!
A clue: It hurts a little and maybe you haven’t tried it yet.
Standing on your head?
What is planking?
Type of exercise. To strengthen abs.
Sure. Someone did my back (don’t have a hairy back like a bear’s though).
Haha. But you won’t believe what happened to my friend after a Brazilian wax. Won’t tell you now, though.
It’s horrible. A mood killer!
Does it involve bits coming off??
The worst. Losing all the skin everywhere. He almost died!
I’ve never heard of that before. Poor guy! I won’t be trying that anytime soon.
His luck was that he’s a military major and had prompt access to the best care at the military hospital. 😕 Life is so strong and frail at the same time.
I can’t get the images out of my head!!! Help!!!
Sorry! Just a warning for people to be careful when waxing…
I promise to be extra careful.
Don’t want to have to visit you in hospital! To feed you grapes!
But I can still feed you grapes.
Like play hazel eyes??
They are quite heavy. It’s crazy! Thought about cutting them.
Don’t you dare cut them!
Text and wax is a new kind of multitasking for me.
Haha. Would love to see that!
Me being a clown here? My phone is all sticky!
😊😊 Hey, did you lose our conversations from WhatsApp like me, or did you have time to back them up?
I backed them up. 😊
Wouldn’t want to lose those fun stories we were co-authoring.
Omg. The gangrene pics are still open on Google. Looked like something from a butcher’s window.
3.02 Poor friend. I hope he recovers fully! Hey, send me a cute selfie of yours? Want to see what you look like in the middle of the night.
Click and ding!
Nice dreamy eyes. 😊
Wow! He does look cute. Not like that crazy smile selfie. Phew!
Whatever you fancy. You are queen of selfies. 😊
3:10 Just so you see I’m really texting and waxing.
Click and ding!
And see you tomorrow. Xx
