A good summer day in sunny London

Today I'm blogging from a coffeeshop in Crouch End. The sun is shining outside and it's hot. I'm wearing summer clothes and my new orange gladiator sandals. I'm happy. This makes me happy.

I'm gonna go pick some photos soon that I wanted printed out. Then I'm gonna walk back up to Muswell Hill and take some photos on the way. Maybe I'll blog some more in the park.
I wish we had a balcony at home on days like these.

Change of heart gets you nowhere

Instead of doing, I think.
Then I change my mind.
Then I have to start all over again.
Just a bit later when I can stress even more about it.

I will never go forward if I'm gonna continue thinking about everything all the time.
Sometimes I should just DO.

This time I changed my mind about studies. To give up 3 years of my precious life on something I don't even enjoy, just seems like such a stupid idea.
I want to have kids young (at least I think I do), but at the same time I want a career more than anything. I want to finally be able to do something I actually love doing.

I don't know anything, and it really bothers me.

And this whole thing makes me really depressed. I haven't been out of the house all weekend. I've got no motivation to go anywhere. London bores me.
Or maybe it's my life that does?

Don't want to be here

Okey, we're back. But I'm actually not happy about it. Would much rather have stayed in NY... We said before we left, that maybe we should just not go to the airport? Imagine, then we would have been illegal immigrants in America! But what a place to be illegal in..... haha

We do want to move over there now. America is such a funny place. Noone takes things too serious which can be so nice. At least for a while.

It was seriously such a great trip. I could almost say it was the best trip I've ver done! Can't think of another as good as this one now anyway. Maybe the cartrip to Romania a few years ago...

Manhattan was incredible. The wedding was jewish and the coolest ever. It's going to be hard to beat. hmmm... how am I gonna to get married before I know I can make it better that that?!

The spider

I wake up in the morning, and I'm grumpy.
My head hurts.... I need water. I need my eyes to get used to being open.
Then D sends me a text: "There's a spider in our house. And it's huge. I saw it this morning. Thought I would let you know."

Okidoki man.

I phone him up: "Why did you have to tell me that?!" and "Why didn't you kill it?!"
He didn't want to wake me up, he says.... How considerate of you!! Really.

I walk over to the kitchen, and all of the sudden I get a feeling of happiness. A smile on my face.
- coffee
ooooohhhh yyyeessss baby, coffee. You make me happy.

Take me home

I'm feeling a little down today...

Maybe not a good idea to start the day with a phonefight.

I'm having one of those days when I just want to go home and hide behind the curtains. Be sad and be left alone.

Last day of the week. It's good, but not good enough.

Going away next week. But not far enough.

My new sunnies for this year!

What'ya think? They're turquoise which I've never even liked! Don't think I got the colour quite right on the photo though.... And I didn't know how to make the blue curtain in the background grey, haha! New to Photoshop. They got it for free online, did you know?

Enjoying time alone at the moment. He should be home soon though. It's good! I can have the whole cake for myself that I bought in the bakery on my way home!!
Listening to Gabrielle, perfect women-feel-good-music!
Totally feeling this woman-thing today - new clothes, cakes, pyjama, music....!! Great stuff.

The batteries for my iPod died this morning.... I feel gutted. My darling iPod who helps me through the tough times on the tube! He's dead. Completely out.....

Swedish bloggers

At work. Got so much to do - I've read hundreds of blogs! Found some good ones, but most of it's crap. So much time wasted on writing those crappy ones.......shame. Specially this one (it's in Swedish) - - wow, what a waste. Can't understand how she can make millions on her blog and how she has so many readers. All she ever says is:

"Today I went to the cafe with Camilla and this is how my lunch looked!

[photo of lunch]

Tonight we are gonna have dinner at Stures, Blondinbella AB is paying! I don't have time to write anymore right now, but this is how I look at this moment!
