The end of the year is here and it is naturally a time of contemplating what was good and bad during the year. We are also closing a decade this New Year, so much time that passed and I feel like I have hardly noticed. But our kid is turning 12 in March next year so obviously time has passed. A decade of mostly being … Continue reading An appreciating post to #bookstagram
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
Sometimes I feel like I am addicted to change. Like if something is too common, if I am getting tou used, that I deeply crave change. Like life changing changes. I am not talking about buying a new deodorant (that I do regularly). I wrote in May that I needed roots. Or thought I needed roots, I don´t know about that anymore. Or is it … Continue reading Change. And Karin Boye.
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 with blogging can be a hustle sometimes, or I make it a hustle most of the times. When I was moving photos from Mayanis computer to the new harddrive I got, I found a folder with all the photos from the posts I made on the previous Jennychangala.com. What happened when I lost it was that I self hosted it with Bluehost, but when … Continue reading Treasures on the hard drive
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
I finished such a good book Yesterday. I started it already on vacation in March but did not really find time to dig in to it so last weekend when I was in pain and more or less spent all the time in the sofa I started again and this week I have taken every moment I could to read. Reading is something I miss … Continue reading Books!
Hi. Again. Do not know what time this is for me. To start a new blog. It´s not new this time in any way though, new in the way that it will be about something new, it will be about the same as all the other ones where, about me, the family and our life. What it means right now is parenting, juggling a new … Continue reading Here we go again.
It has been long now since I reported from our life here in Zambia. It it not because nothing has happened, more that a lot is happening. Mayani started working at ELTEL in the beginning of September and since that day time has been moving like Mosi-o-tunya in rain season. He has long days since trafic takes almost an hour or more sometimes and he … Continue reading Thoughts about moving far, far away
