When at home sick, there is time for creativity: My mum brought a while ago white cards to us, which were a great simple inspiration for us to paint loads of cards. Now we are prepared for all the birthdays coming up.
For the first of May celebrations my husband cut and taped a little cottage for the kids to play in while adults where tending the barbecue. It is big enough for our kids to walk through the door. Taking water colours and brushes out where a huge hit too, and kept the kids busy. We […]
My holiday started with a fantastic long weekend with friends visiting from Belgium and Estonia. Together we did a lot of the fun things that once upon a time I have blogged (further details through the links) about but are worth being mentioned again.

Me and my husband have been there before but it’s a visit that we had to do with our children too; I flew to Rovaniemi with our children and my husband drove up (Helsinki – Rovaniemi, 11-12hrs). We arrived at the Rovaniemi airport: The airport is just a couple of kilometres from the Arctic Circle […]
