A little getaway

I’m tired. I’ve think I’ve hit my limit. Moving house, doing 3-5 interviews a week without an answer and pretty much full time lukas when George is working more or less every night a week between bartending and basket is apparently my limit.

Katta said I don’t seem very happy at the moment and I’m too tired to be happy. Or stressed. Not sure which one. But she is right. Most of my energy goes to being. And the extra I have is for lukas and trying to sell myself in all those interviews.

I just want to an answer. To close that door. Focus on being with my baby and doing fun stuff together. And seeing my partner from time to time. That would be nice too.

We did have the best day at Ellery on Monday though. George got a last minute staff discount and we went there for some quality time. So badly needed for both of us.

It’s gorgeous out there and we got spoilt by the staff.

Something about water and hugs and family that makes everything better.

A little scared but mostly loving family time.

We needed this. All three of us.

And as I said, gorgeous out there.

Then we just hung out with all of George’s colleagues.

Lukas, loving people just as much as his dad.

After a beautiful day with amazing food and drinks and people it was time for bed. George stayed behind and lukas and me headed up to the room to get our beauty sleep.

Heh, not sure that worked for this little man.

Such a needed little get away and gave us all oodles of energy.

Plus yesterday was the first night of Bookclub babes the Stockholm chapter and we got together to discuss Ocean Voungs poetic book ‘on earth we are briefly gorgeous’.

Love having clever women around me discussing literature. Plus the restaurant Nabo had Astrid lindgren reading stories to you in the bathroom which is kind of my dream.

Food, friends and books. My favourite things. So yeah, I might be tired but my life is also filled up with energy from everywhere around me.

And the hunt goes on

Feeling on top of the world today. I’ve had some good interviews and talks over the last week and it was sorely needed after all the no’s and postponing and not getting any answers.

It’s definitely weird COVID times. 10 times the applicants for roles and most companies being hesitant in employing. I’ve been doing the rounds for 4 months now and it’s tiring.

Met with Bonniers CEO today for a casual chat however. It was lovely. She’s all kinds of awesome. Power boss lady but also super nice and taking the time for a proper chat about work and life.

She’s putting me in contact with some people and hopefully something can come out of it. I would love to work my digital costumer magic on my dream company. But otherwise I’m actually in some great talks.

Sending me home with a stack of books is the way to my heart.

Lukas getting a job as well helping papa virtually bartend. Acting it. Everyone has to work in this family.

Work at being cute that is…

Last but not least, hello there bookshelf.

Flat on point.

Happy birthday Sanna

We went to Sanna’s birthday dinner last night. Seriously, it was so nice to get out of the house. We’ve both been on each others nerves for the last couple of days and Lukas whiny streak has not helped.

Screaming baby plus frustration equals a fantastic mood.

I’m just fed up with the work situation and George is fed up with 2020 in general. Not being able to see his parents or friends in UK is getting to us both.

But he is out tonight and I’m out on Saturday. Just need to wing two interviews tomorrow morning when George is working. Walk and talk maybe. Lukas is more likely to stay calm that way.

Mini man all ready to be Sanna’s date yesterday.

They both clearly loved it.

Awesome evening though. Drinks and Sanna and Peter’s and then dinner at Knut. Yummy!!

My table dates went easy on the wine…

Mini man fell asleep and then snoozed his way through dinner. Hero.

We went home around 21.30 and put him to bed. He slept ok so he gets to stay for another couple of days, no need to send him away.

Rest of the weeks is 3 more interviews. Keep up the good work Cissi!

Hey there

Life eh. For me it’s all about Lukas. And our new flat. And job hunting. So well, nothing much new but at the same time all new.

We love the flat. It’s our dream place. Lukas room is my little baby room dream complete with fairy lights and gold stars. And it’s something about being able to do exactly what we want here. Maybe install a jacuzzi in the living room just because we can 🤗.

Hello there Lukas lil room. Not that he is actually sleeping there, he’s still in our room but cute when he is ready.

And play time with papa on our big bed. 180. Big enough for babies AND dogs the day we are ready for that.

George waiting for quests in our kitchen. Life is best with guests in George’s book . Laura and Seb came over for dinner with the kids. So nice to see them.

Baby play time. Lukas got a whole bag of toys from mini and stella. Lucky boyo.

Our beautiful boy is growing. 9 months and a bit now. It’s all about clapping his hands and SCREAMING when he doesn’t get what he wants.

One is definitely cuter than the other…

Overall life is pretty damn good. But, the struggle is real when it comes to finding a job. I can’t really relax before that is done so right now I’m still on 3-4 interviews a week (don’t ask, most of the jobs I’m interviewing for seems to be need a lot of discussing internally what to do)

So we walk and talk and enjoy autumn in all it’s colourful glory and enjoy our time together me and my little family.
