Anna is getting used to sending messages to Christian, Englishman #2, first thing every morning.
8:45 Morning! Slept 10 hours. Gosh, couldn’t take it anymore. My body even started to hurt from the discomfort! Going to work out soon.
For how many days are you staying next week?
Just a rough idea, because I’d like to organize my holiday week. The thing is, the teens will be with their dad. And since I’ll be on holiday and they’ll be on holiday, I know they’ll ask me to do something nice with them. It’s a pleasure for me. But, if I have an idea of the days when you’re available, I can plan special things for my teens, too.
In case we do want to hang out a lot! But having said, let’s feel free not to meet me again after the first time (though I’d love to at least make a friend). Happy Friends’ Day again! It’s today. ☺️
10:44 Good morning and Happy Friends’ day to you too!
10 hours? You really do like sleeping! Beautiful hook! 😊
I’m going to let you know my movements a little later. Still figuring out a few details. Don’t want to take time away from your kids.
10:51 Of course not. Just let me know about your movements this week because then I can plan. My kids care a lot about my needs, and they know I need my own time. As long as I’m also there for them during the week, no problem.
Just yesterday my son was so loving. We were hanging out alone at home and he was leaving and then he stopped everything and said: “Mom, I love you so much! You’re so wonderful. You totally deserve an awesome boyfriend and you will get one in the right moment.”
They know I’ve been on Tinder dates. At first they thought it was hilarious/ embarrassing, but then they started to get it. They support me even in this. Great teens! 😊
11:27 Wow. Special kids. That’s really amazing. 😊
13:36 Off the top of my head, I am free evening 21st, then all day Tue and Wed. Poss free Wed pm, then business trip 24/25th. Helsinki again, so free morning of 26th.
Back to Germany from 3rd-8th, then back to Helsinki for a week or so. China prob April now.
Hope you’re having a nice day.
15:59 Good to know! I’ll try to make plans around that. ☺️
Just finished watching The Revenant with son. So bloody. But well made.
How’s your day coming along?
16:10 Don’t you feel like you could use an extra warm hearty hug today? I’m kind of more emotional. Valentine’s mode.
But strong girl here, though.
Looking forward to finally meeting you in person on Sunday. 😊
16:28 One more week. I will give you that hearty hug. If you let me. 😊
If you don’t, I may just grab you by force. ☺️ Beware.
17:02 Please do. ☺️ I’m coming on 21st with no plans to work. I’m coming to meet you. 😊 Work starts late Wednesday.
Need to get to bottom of the tattoo mystery. Among other things. 😉
Any ski lifts nearby? I’d love to see that.
18:09 I mean you on/off one. 😉 Remember you told me how you can’t get off? How you slide backwards and fall?
Hahaha. We could make a day trip. Would be fun!
But are you sure you want to risk me dying before solving the tattoo mystery?
18:10 I’ll solve that one quickly. Then we’ll move on. 😊
Good one! I have to go out now. Speak later?
18:12 Enjoy! Talk soon.
Good to have company on Friend’s day! Especially being a bit emotional today…
What are friends for? Exactly.
I would totally hug you today. You wouldn’t have a choice.
Oh. That would be nice.
Women and their cycles. 😊
18:14 Choice or no choice. 😊 I’m coming at the wrong time then. Anyway, enjoy your day!
Anna goes out with another Tinder date – one of those she had booked days ago. Another Christian (but American, this one). Says he’s an ex-police officer, now a counter-terrorist agent lending services to the Finnish government.
He’s strong, good looking.
They go to the Nepalese restaurant in her neighborhood, the same where she’s been with Riku, her blind date.
She has a small soup and he a full-course meal. It’s nice to have company. He gives her a nice French kiss at the end and promises to invite her out for dinner tomorrow. She says she’ll think about it.
In the meanwhile, Christian sends Anna a montage and a recording, finally:
19: 43 🇩🇪🇬🇧 + 🇺🇾🇫🇮 = 😊😊☃️❄️🍴🍴🍾🍕🍰⛷️🍷🎲🎲💋
“Hello, only me. Just want to wish you a Happy Friends’ Day. Hope you’re having a nice day with your loved ones. And, can’t wait to see you seven days from now. Ah, it’s crazy. One week from now. Yeah, really can’t wait. So, have a nice night and get lots of sleep. See you soon!”
19:58 Almost forgot:
20:07 🔥🔥🔥 and 🎆🎆🎼🎹🎬💤💤
21:34 My montage was not as creative as yours.
His messages feel more interesting than her date.
21:42 Yes it was! 😍
Earlier today, I went running with James Bond, my son’s dog (6 km).
22:15 Loved the montages, especially the double everything.
Great to hear your voice. Really lovely! Tell me more about your German side.
Love and miss this little friendly, playful dog! Look at this picture – how cute!
23:36 Ahhh. He’s cute.
Wonderful. I never had a pet as a child. Apart from goldfish. It killed itself. Love James Bond – what a fun name! You had a good active day, I can see. I walk a lot. More in Helsinki.
23:36 Hopefully you can show me more.
Here’s a tiger I drew with color pencils:
And some more of my art:
Had a box of leather leftover pieces. Created this bag with glue and scissors and sewing, and gave it to mom.
23:39 Wow. I am impressed. Love it. You should be a designer. Our designer!!
So cool. I can see your future.
P.S. I love hugs too.
😊 Wonderful. This one’s not mine, but I love it:
That’s quite funny. I like it.
It’s very creative, isn’t it?
Yep. Do you know who did it?
It says Terry Border was the artist.
23:44 May I flood your phone with pics like this? You can delete them soon. Otherwise I’ll eat up your memory space.
Please. Flood me. 😊
This is my daughter’s kind of art!
23:49 A proper baker. 😊 Getting hungry. You are killing me!
She should totally bake wedding cakes.
I wouldn’t resist that.
I love taking pictures, as well. And I love Finland!!
I have a nice camera, but have no idea how to use it.
Nowadays I just use my phone.
Yep. Like me. New iPhone takes great pics.
My favorite place in Majorca:
Looks familiar. V Spanish.
Favorite game (it’s called Ingenious):
I want to play. I’ll probably win. 😊 Maybe we can play? You have to teach me. Is that in your flat?
No, not my flat. A game night I hold at church, sometimes.
I hope you win! I like to play against smart, competitive people.
Otherwise it’s no fun!
00:01 I always play to win.
After midnight, so 6 days to go. 😊
And the art of selfies. Here you go.
Anna sends him a couple of good ones.
00:03 Beautiful. 😊
Teach me. I need to learn how to take good selfies. Night night. Thanks for all the pics. 😊 Sweet dreams.
00:05 I’ll teach you. Ah! Where is that smile selfie I asked for? (Sorry for the flood).
I loved the flood.
Had a kind of nostalgic day today.
Keep flooding! 😊
Looking at the kids as small babies, etc.
Lovely pictures. Thanks for sharing.
Ah, yes. Here is chubby me as a baby!
Me. Then my son.
I told you he looks just like you!!
Definitely mine. 😊
I love all your pictures.
And I guess you have an older sister?
Send me as many pics you want as well. Love them.
Sleep tight! X
00:12 Night night x
