I have been in a bad mood for over a week. I can't put a finger on why, but even the smallest issues makes me anxious, annoyed and sad. And no, it's not PMS. It makes me annoyed that you'd even think that. Also I have a cold and a lot to do at work. Netflix isn't as inspiring anymore and I've run out of audio-books. Just so you know why I haven't updated here in a while - you wouldn't like to read more of this, right? Anyway. This weekend we're going on a classic Norwegian "hyttetur" (spending some time in a cabin somewhere in nature) with good friends and I'm sure that will brighten up my mood. I plan to bring my fishing rod and warm clothes and I'm sure there will be wine, board-games and food. Good stuff... Until then I'll just keep on browsing the "humor" and "geek" pages on Pinterest. And hide under a blanket with cat and cat.

Say hello to my new iPhone 6+ and my pretty kittycat-case! I'm still not used to how big this phone is (needs to hands to operate), but it works fine and I love how I now can take pictures for the blog directly with my phone without it being a complete catastrophe.

Today I had a pretty good day to start with, then a couple of minor issues at work got me in a bad mood and now I feel even worse for being grumpy the rest of the day... Best remedy for that? Paint an edgy design on my nails, put on my new River Song t-shirt and skip yoga to snuggle up in the couch.
Plus promise myself to be a more positive version of me tomorrow...
The garden is starting to look pretty sad now even though some things are still blooming, mostly it's overgrown, wind-blown and messy. Therefore it's nice to move some of my projects indoors so I can keep honing my garden skills during the colder season! These are cuttings from some of my hydrangea plants I have outside, and it looks like they might have survived. Crossing my fingers.

Last week I treated myself to this pink and happy sweater from Moods of Norway. As it becomes cooler and cooler all I want to wear is warm knits, so I think this will be frequently in use. Here paired with two other favourotes, a skirt from Weekday and shoes from J Lindeberg.

One thing I've noticed since I began with the pretty busy week-schedule I have, with activities almost every evening, is the importance of Sundays... I use Saturdays to recover from the past week and Sundays to prepare for the coming one. This usually means that on Saturdays I do nothing, except watching Netflix, eat candy and maybe go for a short shopping trip, but in a way I like Sundays even more. That's when I do all of the stuff I didn't have time for or prioritized during the week, like doing the laundry, mending clothes and do the dishes. Things that take some time, but with an exciting audio-book in my ears feel totally OK to do. I also try, like today, to prepare extra food, for example my breakfast muffins, and hang out some outfits to chose from during the week, to simplify my morning routines. I'm basically a teenager all week, trying to avoid cleaning and cooking but on Sundays I turn into a middle aged home-maker and do everything at once.
Last week I was so busy with the roller derby boot-camp that I didn't have time to do any of those things during the weekend, and that resulted in me skipping both yoga and the gym-session with the RD-gang later in the week, just because I felt too unprepared... silly, I know, but that's how I work. Fortunately I redeemed myself today, so bring it on new week! I even took the time to sort out my workout clothes to remove yet another excuse for not going to any of my activities. If I hadn't just burned my muffins I'd call this day a complete success...
