Finnworld

I have decided to start to blog in Finnish. You can read on my daily activities in here: http://aroundtheworldwithafinn.blogspot.com/

Main idea is to:
- improve my Finnish written skills
- commit into a regular posting style
- have a forum for all the pictures that I've taken
- not to forget moments with my son

I doubt I will post less to Livejournal because of this - as you know, I rarely post here anyways...

I don't know how she does it



I think it might have been my first baby kino, but I guess it ended up being more like a future scenario. Being a working mum. That's what I currently am. I have many things to be grateful about: My husband, the best father in the world, who allows me to work while our son is still at home. My job, being as intensive as it sometimes is, it's a zillion times less stressful and mad as othe jobs and I get immense pleasure in both research as well as travelling and project management. Yes, writing endless reports suck, but that's just life. Yes, I never have time for anything beyond what's necessary, this blog post for example is a pure miracle caused by my child sleeping for slightly longer than I expected. I am also grateful of the networks of baby sitting that I have in place, my aunt, my great aunt, my uncle's wife and my own mother. Even my own brother and friends, who have helped me - it makes all the difference. It's good to remember the many things that make me happy while sleep deprivation kicks in and there is no chance of charging batteries.

I've been a single parent this week and on top, I am travelling to London with my 11-month-year-old today. He will stay there with my husband and his grandparents while I go to Athens for three days business trip. Then I'll collect my family on my way back. Where this seemed like a good idea at the time, I feel now that I should plan much more careful next time. Sure my boy is the best and easiest in the world, but he is still 11 months. This means that he's in the verge of toddlerhood and while travelling with a baby was actually still VERY easy, travelling with a toddler is much more demanding. If I could put him on a lease, I would definitely do it - something to put on the shopping list.

I have been thinking of starting a new blog for a while now. I feel like there's so many beautiful things going on in my life that I will forget unless I have a journal... Only time and priorities stop me... But I think I will give it a go. I take way too many beautiful pictures for having them go to waste...

Happy April to all - it's raining today in Helsinki - life is beautiful and goes by way too quickly. I think mine is perfect right now. I could not ask for more.

Kajaani



I've been on a winter holiday in Kajaani, which is relaxing because I've got my aunt with me and the 'two headed dragon' as I call her and my mother - loves to look after my son, which means that I've been pretty much reading blogs and watching Terra Nova for three days now. Unfortunately I've been ill, so none of the plans to go skiing really mobilized this time. Also it is -25C currently, so it would have happened anyways.

Isien ja äitien työt



Äitiys on muuttanut näköjään tämän blogin kielenkin äitiyskielekseni eli suomeksi. Olkoon se nyt sitten suomea, koska arvelen, että ne lukijat, joita vauvajutut kiinnostaa niin on lähinnä suomea osaavia.

Rowanna kauhistui kommenteissa sitä, että meillä aina nukuttaa äiti. Siispä ajattelin avata vähän meidän arkea ja sitä, miten minä olen äitinä pysynyt järjissäni oikein hyvin koko vanhempainvapaan, jota on jäljellä enää apua - 1kk!
