Busy Days & Sleepless Nights a.k.a Helsinki

On Friday we packed our things and lastly the cats. Then we started to drive towards Helsinki. Two hours later we arrived there. We checked in the hotel and got cats and everything in the room before we went to see my brother and brought him some things with us. We arrived there much later than we first thought – It is hard to anticipate how much time will go to drive or doing things in a different city. 

On Saturday we went to get some breakfast and slept late. Then we went shopping and I bought a new corset and two skirts.

We went to see my grandparents. Then my mom went so see my brother while I went to shower and napping before we went to eat.

Then we went back to the hotel to enjoy the rest of the night. At the hotel I was reminded that I have insomnia for I couldn't sleep at nights. I didn't realize this early enough to take something for it with me so I was just turning in my bed all night. Even due the sleepless nights, I somehow managed through the days...

A new morning rising... 

On Sunday we just snoozed off the alarm for breakfast and slept late. Then we packed our things and get them into the car. Cats came lastly and that was a tricky task to do but we managed to get them all into their carrying boxes.

Then we went to my brothers and got the rest of the things inside and lastly the cough which was the trickiest job to do for a small elevator plus a big cough equals a lot of work. But with some time and effort everything is achieveable.

With cats in the car we got some time to spend there and once the cough was in one piece, we got to sit on it and play Assasins Greed 2, while mom was arranging the apartment. Too bad we didn't have enough time to spend there or in Helsinki overall (though we had all sort of plans to do) because we had to go driving back to Tampere because of the cats and the clock was ticking on and it would take another two hours to drive back to Tampere. On nine p.m. we arrived back to Tampere. It is always delightful to be in Helsinki but it is always good to be back home. I'm already waiting for the next time...

Diving into the Dark Night

Nights are so very dark again. I know it is going to be Fall before I will even notice it. Still I feel like I have enjoyed the summer enough and it haven't just slipped by me. So I'm not having a crisis about that and that's good.

I've been having heavier times again and it shows on everything including blog entries. I just feel down and I feel I can't get anything done. I still have been having good moments in between the down time... I've medicated myself with movies.

On this weekend I will go Helsinki with my mom and we are going to have a girl’s quality time. We are taking cats with us also and we are going to go see my brother and grandparents. Changing a scene always does well and this could not come more better time.

Photoshoot and Margaritas

Today was a photoshoot for my interview thing. At first we went on a cliff to take pictures for the magazine. The photographer was very good and knew what to do. She had good ideas for the photos and gave good directions. I have always taken a photo where all my hair is spread around my head – and now we did. Then we continued taking photos on the cliff and I have always wanted a professional photographer to take photos of me in general so it was a perfect situation and I was in no hurry at all. She also made me dive into a flower bush and in the forest. It was great.

But when the sun started to set the mosquitos came in like a plague. They were all over me when I tried to calm myself for the photos, standing in a flower bush while I was being eaten alive. I couldn’t believe how they got through even my thick black pantyhose. I was so eaten up at the end of the photoshoot but oh my god it was sooo worth it (for what I had seen from the photos taken). The photographer said that I would get the photos myself approximately at the end of this month... I can
t wait. And the interview is coming out on this Fall.

The rest of the night went by making Frozen Strawberry Margaritas and listening good music.

Here’s what you got to do:
Frozen Strawberry Margarita

2 cl Tequila
2 cl Triple Sec (or Cointreau)

1/2-1 (1-2 cl) lime juice
5-6 frozen strawberries

1. Pour the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
2. Pour the contents into a chilled margarita glass and garnish with a fresh slice of strawberry or lime.

Simple as that! And put on some good music!!
