What do one do when everything is just falling out of control? And keeps falling and falling? Falling way down, giving you the feeling like you have to start over from the beginning again? Starting from scratch all over. That´s how 2020 feels so far for me and I have not much more to say about it. I do have a lot of feelings about … Continue reading 2020, whaaaat?
Can´t take much credit for this garden but am still going to brag a little bit about it. Or I wont write so much about it, maybe just leave the photos here to look at later this year when it is getting cold and harsh and grey and unfertile, and did I mention cold? I leave them here like a mental memory, a note, an … Continue reading Summer garden update
We have summer weather now. All this talk of weather, the controlling nature of its matter. How it changes moods and affects bodies. Weather in Sweden is everything, and nothing. Nothing to rely on. Sometimes I let myself wonder how we would be as a society if we had good weather all the time. Scary. But right now weather is good. This week we are … Continue reading Always this thing called weather
In Sweden April is the last month of “it can be winter again all of a sudden” and I am not in the mood of arguing with winter clothes, shoes, hats and cold cars in the morning anymore. So I have to just survive it. Soon, soon, soon full out spring will be here and all of a sudden it is summer. So I have … Continue reading Three things I do to survive April
I was supposed to write a blog post last Friday. I had the day off and the whole weekend a head, so a nice long three day weekend, but I just could not write anything on Friday. I woke up feeling terrible. Drank my coffee and watched some TV-series about deadly traumas (Critical) and then I reached for my phone to check on Instagram and … Continue reading Last Friday and beyond. Or where to start to change the narrative.
This weekend we celebrated Alices 11th birthday. Her birthday was on Friday and we had invited the grandparents, the great grand ma and my sister with her family too a small party on Saturday. Alice loves baking so she had planned a marshmallow cake and she did (almost) everything on her own. She started with doing the cake bases, or the actual cake parts, on … Continue reading Complicated cake and family fun
Today this girl is 11 years old. 11 years! I became a mom 11 years ago. Even if I say it loud and look at old photos I cant believe that she is now closer to 15 than 5! What happended? Where did my baby go? Where did that new mum go? Well, a collegue told me the other day that I will adapt. … Continue reading The day I became a mom 11 years ago
I am finally back at work! Started with a weekend full of evenings. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. To work weekends comes with the job description when you work as an ICU nurse. Sometimes it really sucks to work when everybody else is off, especially when you are invited to parties or other fun things people do on weekends (what do people do really?). But most … Continue reading Once a nurse, always a nurse….
It is time for you to get to know the Jenny Changala that keeps appearing and reappearing in the bloggosphere a bit more. I had blogs before. Yes, I did and when I sat looking through my old WordPress blogs (allhingsdesigned and thechangalas) and trying to find a way to save them the other day, I found a funny thing called export and import on … Continue reading Down the memory lane and export/import business
February is soon ending, and that is like the best thing. Not a fan of February. March comes with more promise of spring and warmth and the birthday of my first born. She turns 11 this year! A real tweenie. Can´t believe it, but at the same time I can, because I feel older. Since this chronic disease took me down three weeks ago, I … Continue reading Self care and books
