Another Easter Miracle
“The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.” — Robert Flatt
Well so I thought the week of Easter would be a good time to resurrect my blog. Yes, it’s another Easter Miracle, I’m back! Who would have thought. Forgotten me? Doubt it. I haven’t forgotten you guys either. Sorry for my absence these past few months, actually since January. I’m a bag blogger aren’t I? Thanks for the messages and emails I received inquiring as to whether I was alive or not.
So what happened in January that made me stop blogging? Bloody husband went back to work didn’t he. After 6 months of paternity leave he went back to work and I had to start helping out at home and cooking and cleaning* and doing daycare drop offs and was ultra pregnant and working full-time, bloody husband to blame for most of that I do feel.
There has been lots going on around these parts of the Swedish woods so I call you a quick recap of what’s been happening:
- The baby. Yes, the surprise baby arrived! We were blessed with the safe arrival of another beautiful baby girl on March 11th. 4.5 kg/53 cm, another Viking sized bub. She’s super cute, 5 weeks old now and still not named. When I complained to TSH that we hadn’t decided on a name yet he told me I should just call her ‘gold bottom’ which works better in Swedish I guess. Gold bottom is just the sweetest sweetest thing and is doing everything right. Like sleeping now, so I can actually blog.
- The passport. My husband has now had his Swedish passport stamped with a big kangaroo, his Australian partner visa/permanent residence visa was approved so now it’s all systems go for our move to Sydney later in the year.
- Managing life with a newborn, 1 yr + 3 yr old. Gee whiz, for someone who suffered fake infertility for half a decade, I’ve certainly made up for it since. Who would have thought I would never have the time to write a blog due the fact I was kid wrangling a trio of girls.
What you can expect to see more of in the coming weeks:
♥ Sarcasm. (Just can’t help it and as I haven’t had an available outlet for it these past months, expect it to just ramble out of me from now on.) ♥ Sweet treats that don’t contain sugar. I’m still on the I Quit Sugar and it made me a happier person band wagon so watch out. ♥ Me dissing on Sweden, like here for instance, rambling on about the lack of chocolate Easter eggs in this country – well Sweden got the last laugh now as I no longer eat chocolate. (LIAR – I eat handmade sugar-free pralines from praline huset in Stockholm, made with Stevia. Pralines is a fancy word for chocolate. ♥ Sydney me banging on about our up and coming move to Sydney where we will be leaving the safe bosom of Swedish economic rationalism and entering the world of unemployment. ♥ Spelling mistakes and poor grammer . I’ll be typing so fast due to time constraints, I’m sure they will slip passed.**
GAME ON! Messages of encouragement are accepted. And products containing Stevia.
*Truth be told, we have a cleaner.
