Fortune teller

Fashion,2 January 2020

Happy New decade! Can’t believe that New Year’s Eve has become one of my favorite evenings. I used to completely ignore the day before, but ever since I became a mum, the pressure has been off, and we started the tradition to invite friends and their children over for a relaxed Nepalese dinner. This year, the children were louder than ever, and we’ve still not managed to clean up all the mess. Every single plate and glass got dirty and we still step on Lego’s mixed up with puzzles. Loved ending 2019 like this and really hope 2020 has many of these in store for us.

After the kids and husbands were tucked into bed at 10pm, 5 ladies happy on life went out to continue the celebrations. I got home way too late and really had to pay off my duties the day after.  I never drink more than a couple glasses of wine, but sleep deprivation is the worst for me! I felt nauseous and got chills all day yesterday. Clearly in need of more practice this year ;).

A couple years ago, I met a medium who told me that 2021 will be my best year. I don’t know what she meant by “best”, but I decided to enjoy the journey. I’m sure 2020 will be an amazing year for all of us. In one way or another. Hopefully we’ll learn something, laugh a lot, love hard, feel and embrace life. That’s what I wish for this year, and the next 10.

The holiday

Hi! Today is the first day I’m slowly thinking of getting back on track with my life again. I’ve basically given up on routines, a healthy lifestyle, fresh air and clean hair ;). I took some time off creating new content over Christmas and it felt relaxing to shut down that way of thinking for a couple of days. The only con is that I enjoy it so much I forget to take pictures of anything. No pictures of Santa or the kids. I didn’t even know where my phone was laying most of the time. I even watched a movie or two and every single episode of Solsidan! Now, I’m thinking of giving Downton abbey a new chance, so if you know where I can find the episodes please share!

Christmas was nice, but there’s always something a bit melancholic about this Holiday. So many expectations, nostalgia and the pressure to create memories and traditions for our children, while constantly thinking about all the children and families that don’t manage to make their wishes come true or create that idyllic holiday. I’m always a bit anxious during these days.

We spent Christmas eve at my dad’s and the following days at my in-laws. Yesterday, we spent the evening eating Raclette at our friends and had a really nice evening. Now I crave fresh air and movement for my body, so more outdoor activities are more than welcomed until the parties kick off again for New Year’s Eve when we’re hosting a party.

How was your Christmas?
