Long time no see, dear readers!
It’s been a few eventful months. To cut a long story short, I started working for a real estate company, but due to personal circumstances I quit my job. I’ve been much more relaxed since I did this and I’ve been able to visit my family back home in Sweden.
My personal economy is nowhere near what I used to have back home and especially in Malmö, but at least I’m happy with my life – money isn’t everything, after all!
One thing that I miss (besides my family and my baby girl Metalica, of course) is friends. I miss being able to walk out of the door, and meet up with them. I know one person in Liverpool and that’s about it. We never seem to be able to catch up, and now it has been months since last time we went out for a walk in the park. I kind of feel that I’m sometimes cooped up at home, not having much to do other than sitting in front of the PC.
Then again, this gives me plenty of time to start writing again, and setting up my tribe in ARK: Survival Evolved, haha! We’re 6 people at the moment, and looking to expand once I get my Twitch stream going on a regular basis.
Right, time for some lunch I think. Until next time!
I still haven’t quite gotten used to the one hour time zone difference between Sweden and England, haha. It’s taking time to adjust to everything – it all feels very new to me. It’s like I’m taking baby steps when it comes to the easiest tasks such as paying for stuff in the shops, but I’m sure it’ll change soon. I’m too used to the Swedish language and talking like one does in Sweden (which means everything has to be ‘lagom’).
J came over to Malmö on Friday last week and helped me do the last bit of packing. With ‘last bit’ what I really mean is putting my entire life in 3 suitcases and 1 specially designed cardboard box with an attached plastic blue IKEA bag as handles in order to be able to put my PC case on hold at the airport on Saturday. Also, I’ve never seen anyone pack bags and suitcases like J does! I was very impressed. ♡
We celebrated my move with tasty food and champagne on the 25th and watched some episodes of ‘Modern Family’ on SKY. On Sunday we did some shopping in Liverpool and I bought some stuff from The Body Shop, and two pairs of jeans from NEXT. Sadly, the jeans didn’t fit too well (I tried on the regular fit, then switched to the petite ones which I assumed had the same size around the waist even though the legs were shorter) so I’ll go and exchange the grey pair as soon as possible – can’t change the black one as I already used it. I’m considering sending it to my Mum so that they get used instead of collecting dust. ♡
During the weekend we had some really amazing weather! The sun was out and we could wear our new Spring jackets. J was rocking his sunglasses. ♡ I do regret that I didn’t take my camera out, but in all honesty I was too exhausted from 2 weeks of cleaning and throwing things out back in Malmö, then 2 days of almost non-stop cleaning before my landlord came over for an inspection and then emptying the apartment and yet another inspection on the 25th a few hours before our flight.
Yesterday I had a meeting with a girl who has two Staffordshire bullterriers that she needs a dog sitter for in about two weeks. We agreed that if all goes as planned I’ll be looking after one of the dogs, and we went out for a walk with them in one of the parks close by. It was a beautiful, sunny day, not too cold, and the dogs were enjoying the walk. The girl and I chatted for a few hours and it was really nice! We also talked about starting jogging together, so I’m going downtown this week to buy some running shoes. I can’t wait to start excercising properly again!
Today I’m meeting another dog owner who is interested in hiring me as their dog sitter for a couple of weeks. Hopefully the meeting goes well and their dog will like me. ♡
Sorry for not updating yesterday. D: I have a lot going on with packing and cleaning, so I need a few days in order to organize everything. But once that’s done, I’ll be sure to update frequently again. <3
Movie premiere night!
Tonight I watched ‘Beauty and the Beast’ at Royal. My movie started at 17:00, and my best friend Mariam went to the premiere in Visby, Gotland, at 18:00. We haven’t caught up chatting about it yet, because she’s still watching it as I’m writing this entry.
So, before I start doing my usual rambling, please know that I haven’t had any alcohol. I don’t drink. I might have had way too much chocolate for my own good though, but that’s not the point. The point is that I’m going to write one of my shameless and absolutely rambly entries, something that I’m known for among my family and friends (not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing).
Ahem. To spare those that don’t want to read about how Gaston (Luke Evans) awakened my inner fangirl, how the Beast’s solo made me burst into tears, how I got a girl crush on Belle and so on, all you need to know is that the movie is absolutely brilliant. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. But the movie delivered and so much more and it made me experience such intense emotions all at the same time. In fact, I called J right after the movie had ended as I was going home and started fangirling about it, when in reality I just wanted to tell him how much I love him and how I need to go and hug him, but damnit, Malmö is far away from Liverpool. However, I decided to calm myself down (or maybe it was because my face was freezing because of the wind) and such comments will have to wait for later.

Please note: I use strong language in this entry… and I try not to write any spoilers!
