Une petite update

Currently, I'm........
Happy about: So many things.....but the most obvious one, standing out of the crowd if you will, is being (14 week's) pregnant (and finally starting to feel better!! Honestly, the first trimester was not entirely painless due to all the (morning)sickness). 
Disappointed about: Frankly speaking, nothing important.

Thinking about: The future...a lot! Which I think is normal considering the life transition that we are going through! All fantastic stuff though.
Listening to: Especially these tracks:



Worrying about: If the flight companies will allow me to fly at the end of July when we plan to go to Sweden for 2 weeks of holiday......and the fact that if the answer is "No!", we will have to go by train =o/
Looking forward to: Going to a wedding in Lucerne this weekend! I love weddings as they're always so filled of happy people and hopes for the future =) Am also really looking forward to all the wonderful visits we will have this spring and summer!!
Watching: I've started to watch ABC's "Once upon a time". It was not a "love at first sight kind of thing"....but it grew on me quickly and now I can't wait for the next episode!!
Wondering: If I'm the only one playing around in their heads with musical lyrics? I recently destroyed Coldplay's "Paradise", a song that I love, doing exactly that. Now all I hear is "Parrot, parrot, parrot eyes" (sorry, but this curse was just too heavy for me to carry on my own ;)).
Planning: How to fix up and decorate our balcony for spring! So far, we haven't had time nor the weather for such things and I am really looking forward to start BBQ season out there. Spring, bring it ON!!
Feeling: Really good, happy and excited about the future, but on the downside, more tired than under "normal" circumstances ;))
Inspired by: People who can manage it all...and there seem to be many out there. When I say "manage it all", I mean people who can juggle a career, family life, a healthy lifestyle including regular fitness activities AND healthy foods and on top of this, maintain their beloved friendships. Now if that's not inspiring, I don't know what is.
One of the many beautiful views during this evenings run...
Thankful for: Having such amazing friends and family (extended family included!!!) who are always so supportive and loving!! Am also truly thankful for having found a great friend here in the area (actually, she's even my next door office colleague =))! Without her, my days would not be even a tenth as fun as they currently are!
Wanting: Spring to really kick off properly!! It was well on it's way and then came the snow.....such a sneaky and unexpected visit ;)) I want picnics, BBQ's, walks in nature and fun in the sun!! Today the sun was finally shining again, making me enjoy this evenings run more than normally.

  4. That is amazing, Linda, I am so happy for you, congratulations!

    Also, congrats on finding a great friend - that's possibly the hardest part about being an expat, the fact that we have to leave our good friends behind. It's really great when you find someone you connect... nearby :-)

    1. Merciiiiii!!! Delirious is the word!! =)))
      ...and yes, you're right! Finding friends is not as easy as when younger.... Partially it's because you are more picky and also because, well at least for me, I don't hang in places where I would just bump in to someone and start to chat....not really.

  10. Åh vad roligt! GRATTIS GRATTIS GRATTIS!! Och ett extra grattis till att dom första 14 veckorna har passerat, dom är ju inte så jättekul, först blev jag så himla glad, men sen blev jag orolig att nåt skulle hända, och så mådde jag illa! Men nu blir det bara bättre och bättre! Dessutom börjar du säkert få en liten fin mage istället för att bara se lite lönnfet ut, eller hur :) Ska ni ta reda på vad det är?

    Hur är det med föräldraledigheten over there?

    Igen - GUD VA ROLIGT!!
