Short Day at Work on a Sunny Friday and Collective Fun

The Friday was obviously enjoyable just because of the sun and time off. But yesterday there was more to it, like cuddles and kisses by the front door because “yay, it’s weekend” and “I loooooove you” gardening (Is it in age thing to enjoy this more and more?) And jumping on the common neighborhood trampoline. […]

Helsinki in the 50’s

The Brylcreem photo exhibition at Hakasalmi villa at Mannerheimintie 13 was in my opinion a great one: it portrayed Helsinki in the 50’s. It was pretty cool to see how some streets were still easy to recognise and some were beyond imagination.  The pictures also told a lot about the life in the post war era […]

Free School Lunch

One of the things I like about this country is that not just schools are free but nutritional (but simple) lunches are offered to all school children for free too. This is to ensure they all get at least one warm and healthy meal a day, and they claim it has improved the learning too. […]

Here we only enjoy the awakening nature close to our home but if you enjoy nature, you may be interested in […]

Painting Easter Eggs without Mess

We decided to try the easy and messyless way of painting eggs that No Time for Flashcards introduced. The idea is simple: pour paint in plastic bags, drop in the egg, and rub it. This is how our eggs turned out: Happy Easter!  

Virtual Boot Camp

I think this is the perfect theme for a post right before all the chocolate eggs: I won a free virtual 8 week boot camp on Penang Momma’s blog. Penang Momma, that is Laurel, an expat to Penang, introduces the culture and gives loads of useful tips for those travelling to the area or to […]

Spring Spotting

Today this little fellow has kept us company: The powerful transformation in the nature in the spring is, to me, magical. And hugely enjoyable. There is loads to look at that gives reason to much more interesting biology lessons than I ever had at school: Today spotting the baby squirrel made us talk about the […]

Easter Bunnies from old Baby Socks

When decorating for the Easter, I found these Easter bunnies that we made last year out of left over baby socks with my daughter. I modified the idea from the pigs and cats we’d made earlier, and stuck a skewer in them to make them stand in the grass.
