Some of the greatest days of my life

December 17, 2017

I went to visit my family for some days and got back home earlier this week. Came home to massive amounts of work, cooking and celebrations. This is the first time I’m sitting down at the computer. Last Saturday we had some Xmas celebrations and made lots of sweets and food.

My mum and her boyfriend’s house is filled with record players and vinyl records and we were listening to a lot of music. A Pet Shop Boys album was missing in their collection, so I gave them Introspective.

Most of the days were cloudy (except for one, I’m going to show you how beautiful it was) and this was the brightest it got, for about 2 hours. Omg. Anyway, I had some of the greatest days of my life so far. My dad was cooking for us one evening and it was so tasty (traditional meat soup and blood dumplings, I know it might sound horrible, but for me it’s childhood), I had a lot of cured salmon and so many hugs.

Mum baked a soft gingerbread cake which we ate with lingonberries and cream.

When I came home a friend of mine looked at me and said Sandra, you look so happy.
Life is getting back on track, on Friday I turned 39 and I plan to be repaired before 40. They say life is on top between 40 and 50. Bring it on!

    Dear Sandra,

    I have wanted to comment for ages because every single post you write just touches my heart really deeply.

    You are so open here and there and I like all the bits and pieces you share about yourself.

    I turned 45 in August and when I was 39 I went through (hormonal postpartum) depression and it got so much better (with help mind you) and it is true, life does somehow get better and better (well, we have to do our share, of course).

    My husband is from Berlin and we miss it so very much so I really love seeing all your pictures.

    I wear my wrist worms every day and or daughter (8) loves them just like your nieces do.

    I hope you have a wonderful Xmas time with your husband and friends and continue on well on your path, one day I find a friend you is like you.

    (P.S. We had a wonderful little conversation on IG about trash in the backyard)

    Take good care both of you.

    Just saw this post. I turned 70 on December 17th this year and feel like 35 and act about 25.
    I just hope I have another 30 years.
    The 40’s are a piece of cake. Enjoy them and don’t sweat the little stuff .
