till early morning…we had a couple (or more?) of bubbly, BBQ and sauna at midnight.


It was a beautiful night!!!

Last couple of days have been SUNNY and WARM!


I bought a pile of 300 g paper from England.

Oh, and have I painted – yes, yes, yes!

I really like that paper and I must, must order more of it before

all 100 sheets are gone……..


I shot this peony bud in 9.6.2017

I wake up every morning 5 am because it’s so bright (I get up later though).


We’ve been painting outside walls,

planted grass seeds (hopefully good ones),

organizing furniture and stuff inside…

This sun we bought from Egypt when

we lived in Cairo…

what a nightmare…

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011


What a nightmare life has been since last Friday.

On Fri afternoon I went to our new flat.

It was not cleaned even if it’s ‘commercial custom’ here.

I booked cleaning staff for tomorrow morning. They’re going to

clean the whole place. Every detail.


Previous owner just took all their stuff and didn’t clean.

Would you leave a place this dirty?


A couple of items have disappeared so I contacted our

insurance company to get compensation for all this hassle.


My arm/shoulder is better. I got strong relaxants.

I can’t totally lift my hand up on top of my head but

it’s not a vegetable anymore.

Oh, boy how down I’ve been last four days…



But now I can see light again 🙂

How’s your life?


I’ll visit your blogs later today/tomorrow, I promise! 🙂

Unknown Mami

busy, busy…I'm trying to be a good wife, cook, secretary etc. kiire, kiire ja kaikki tekemättä…millaista olisi olla vaihteeksi kunnon vaimo?

Friday, March 6th, 2009

Morning was beautiful…but then started terrible wind….
We went shopping and there were terrible queues…

Now at home and I noticed all the undone things!
So, I’m going to activate myself to be like a good wife, cook, secretary etc.
That’s going to be fun! 🙂

Aamu oli kaunis mutta sitten alkoi hirvittävä tuuli…
Menimme kauppaan ja siellä oli järkyttävät jonot…

Nyt ollaan kotona ja huomaan kaiken tekemättömän!
Joten aion aktivoitua olemaan kuin kunnon vaimo, kokki, sihteeri jne.
Siitä tulee hauskaa! 🙂

but before I go,
here’s a question: what is this?

mutta ennen kuin menen,
tässä kysymys: mitä tämä on?

and now…

ja nyt…

ps. I’ll be back about blogging next week…

Palaan bloggausaiheeseen ensi viikolla…

yesterday gone, just a memory + photos…and cleaning! eilinen mennyt, vain muisto jäi…ja valokuvat! ja siivoaminen!

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

you see the sand from yesterday…and this is only few wipes…
Note: the sand is like dust or flour…

Not a word about today’s weather…
oh, but I have few pics which I took in the morning just before 7 o’clock…

tässä murto-osa hiekkamyrskyn hiekoista…muutaman suitaisun verran… Tiedoksi, että hiekka on hienoa kuin pöly tai vehnäjauho…

ja nyt en sitten mainitse sanallakaan millainen keli tänään on…
muutama kuva kuitenkin…otin aamulla just ennen klo 7…

need a break? holiday? come to Cairo, Egypt! tule Kairoon, Egyptiin!

Monday, February 9th, 2009
