Perfect glogg evening and first snow

This picture here under describes yesterday. I made really good food here at home and after that I went for a glogg evening with Cessi and Mixu. We watched the Halloween movie and scared up each-other..
And all I can say is that it couldn't have been a better day, I mean when I woke up I wound a layer of the first snow on the backyard.. Soon it's Christmas so I have to start buying everyone presents and put up my Christmas lights! 

Bilden ovanför beskriver gårdagen i ett nötskal. Jag gjorde värsta restaurang käket hemma och efter det blev det en glögg kväll med Cessi och Mixu. Vi kollade på Halloween filmen och skrämde upp varandra förstås.. Allt jag kan säga är att vi kunde inte ha valt en bättre dag för idag när jag vaknade och kollade ut genom fönstret låg ett lager första snön på bakgården... Kan inte tro det, snart är det jul! vilket betyder att jag måste börja köpa julklappar åt alla och sen få pynta mitt rum med jullamporna!

swimming and eating.

Today we went swimming with Tesse. It felt so good, even if we weren't in the pools so long, but the steam sauna was incredible. After that we decided to get something to eat, this time we went to Subway.
oh and.. I found some stuff that I really need! Bought lipbalm,a new mascara,  a nourishing night cream, eye drops (have been getting really dry eyes lately on the boat),  new pyjamas pants, a kettlebell, cosy slippers and also donating breast cancer.

Idag har vi åkt iväg till simhallen med min väninna Tesse. Det var riktigt skönt! även fast vi inte satt länge vid polen. Ångbastun gjorde nog susen.. Efter detta beslöt vi oss för att åka och äta någonting, denna gång fick det bli Subway.
Förstås hittade jag en massa saker som jag verkligen är i behov av just nu. Köpte läppfett, ny mascaram , favorit nattkrämen, ögondroppar(har så torra ögon på båten), nya pyjamasbyxor, en kahvakuula, urmysiga morgontofflor och donera pengar till förkämpning av bröstcancer.

my other home.

Nowadays the boat feels like my home. There is so much great people there and lately I've been there so much!
Anyway, I stayed for two days more there working as an entertaining person for children. And it was so fun! Even if I had to dance&sing to many different children songs. But I loved it, and we also had Scrat from Ice Age visiting! So guess what? going onboard on Saturday again as a spa-terapeut and next Monday I'm changing to work as an entertaining person for children. It's really nice to get to do many different kind of stuff!

Hej alla! Bestämde mig för att börja skriva på svenska igen, efter vissa önskemål. Iallafall, nuförtiden känns det som båten skulle vara mitt andra hem. Där finns en massa härliga människor och på senaste tiden har jag spenderat så mycket tid där!
Stannade två dagar till ombord och jobbade som barnledare. Och jag hade nog så roligt! Även fast jag hamnade dansa& sjunga till en massa finska barnlåtar som "sutsisatsa" och "frontside ollie" som barnen sedan skulle apa våra dansmoves. Sedan hade vi även Scrat från Ice Age filmerna som gäst. Fich även dra Bingo tävlingarna och en stund även dra karaoken.
 Men vet ni vad? denna tjej åker iväg på jobb igen på lördan två dagar som Spa terapeut och sedan jobba som barnledare igen! Det måste jag ännu säga, det är kul att få göra lite olika saker ibland!

This is how it looks when you're going for a run here in Finland.. It's freezing and hazily. But on the bright side you also get to enjoy the colors of the leafs.
And back to jogging.. here I am dreaming about my own pulse clock to make my running even more interesting. This one bellow I've been checking on. It doesn't cost so much, but it isn't with the cheapest ones either. This one will take my pulse, the speed and calculate how long I've been running. Hmm.. have to think about it!

next year plans!

So congratulations to myself! I accepted the job. This means that I'm not going to the USA next year, which is sad, but I think this really was the best solution. And who knows? - Maybe I'm going as an Au pair later in my life, but this is also something I love to do.
Right now this feels great. Few of my c:o workers from the boat that I'm now working on will also come to the new boat. I'm really looking forward to get to work there! New year, new job and new goals!

training inspiration

I was so sore and tired from the body pump training last evening but still, I raised my ass up and went to the gym for 2 hours. Those hours may have felt like the longest ones ever, but I won't stop until I get a strong healthy looking body. And I have to be honest, my muscles feels better now!

Have to decide between two dreams!

Saturday started just fine, I woke up, contacted Cessi to come out for a run. 
We tried to search for their missing cat Kalle. But we couldn't find him :( 
Also we decided to take a look at the new "sportpark" in Inkoo. I'm glad they spent money on this actually!

Later I noticed that the chief for the hotel had left me an e-mail that she's been trying to contact me but didn't reach me and if I could call her when I saw the mail. Tried to call her but she didn't answer. A couple hours later she rang back and ask if I was still interested about the job at the new ferry boat M/S Grace, Viking Line. I was so shocked, for a few weeks I got an e-mail where it stood that they couldn't offer me the job I applied this time..

Now I got a week on me to decide if I'm going to take this job.. I mean this is a HUGE opportunity. This was my dream workplace. To work as a beautician and on a wonderful, dreamy ferry boat.

But the dream crashed a bit when I received the mail about me not getting the job and I started to dream more and plan my year in the USA working as an Au Pair with children...

The chief said that they looking forward to get me to their team and that there have been people recommending me from the course at Långvik and from the boat were I am now working. They've tried to reach me for weeks but couldn't get any answer so the chief sent we and e-mail to see if I'm okay.

I think that they even got the wrong phone number? Because I got a new phone and number but I still have my old one but I haven't received any phone calls at all?
I been thinking a lot about this now since yesterday. I was so happy but still so unsure.. But we decided to celebrate the great news anyway with Cessi! First we went to Restaurant Sågen and ate juicy Salmon. And later, we ended up sitting drinking two glas of longdrinks with familiar friends at our home bar.

Friday IKEA.

There is so many times I've asked myself "Why doesn't I live in Sweden?" I mean, they got everything there. One shop really close to my heart is the IKEA. I always buys so much things that I don't really need from there. And why? maybe because there's so much good prices!

So the Friday started really quiet, Tesse called me on the morning and asked "what are our plans today?" well, we came up with the brilliant idea to go shopping, I was really going to buy myself more training clothes and Tesse was really just needing a iron to make waffles. But surprisingly we both didn't come home with these things. Just many other stuff..

When we we're on our way to Iso-Omena (Finnish shopping mall) we decided to also go to IKEA. We saw many Christmas lights so guess what we did later that evening?- we drank GLOGG with Hanna & Niki who also came to visit us home at Tesses.

And good folks. I discovered the lovely, sweetest and..oh what can I say? -I became a huge fan of frozen yogurt.

Now I feel so lazy nowadays, and the rain is really not helping at all! Can't even go out for a run so I decided to buy me a month gym-card again.

my daily drug

I love music so much that I sometimes forget to go to sleep...true story man.

New lamp

So my room have been without a roof lamp for about.. Well ever since I moved back home. Why? Maybe because I have been lazy and haven't bought one or something like that.. But tadaa! Betty's room got a new look!

This bunch of pictures describes my 4 days at the Långvik congress center

- The Långvik house
- The Lobby, stores and decorations inside the hotel

after rain comes sun, even in Finland!

I'm back from my little job trip with a new jacket,a cozy wool pullover and a black skirt richer.  
The moment I walked in to the H&M store I felt in love with Lana Del Rey's collection. I even like her music! Her styles remember me of the old Hollywood, the mystic show music and the clothes are pure, sweet , feminim and gorgeous! 

Friday was a little bit quiet but the Saturday was so full booked! Even took a picture from the Swedish newspaper- aftonbladet. (love to read it every morning) The headline was about a new service they come up with in Sweden; getting booze and liqueur drove home to your house from the store. I thought it was hilarious and maybe a little bit unnecessery. Are people really that lazy to get their own booze nowadays?

It was also so beautiful sky this weekend in Sweden and NOTICE-FINLAND! 
I don't know I many times I just stared out of the window during sunrising and downrising. But the truth is - If the sun is shining then I am shining! :)

so powerful song..

You've got the words to change a nation but you're biting your tongue

You've spent a lifetime stuck in silence afraid you'll say something wrong
If no one ever hears it, how we gonna learn your song?
So come on come on, come on come on..

I wanna sing
I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers, I'm not afraid
They can read all about it, read all about it oh

sleeping beauty!

me waking up with my heated underblanket
 I woke up as the happiest person on this earth today! I bought myself a heated underblanket to my bed! You see, in Finland we have very cold weather almost all the time.. And especially my room, it becomes a freaking igloo after summer!
You see, I have a tendency to freeze a lot so sometimes I even wake up in the night because of that. And I'm already sleeping with a sheet and a blanket. I even have to sleep with double sheets and blankets in wintertime..
I slept like a baby! love it.

sorry for the messy hair pictures!
And so the schooltraining continued and it feels already so much better! Maybe because we got to do some treatments? ;)  Anyhow, I'm NOT complaining!

One of my c:o worker also made me the "herringbone" today, thihi (I know, I got so short hair nowadays..) and tomorrow she promised to show me how to do a french plait or braid, not sure what is it called on English?

School training at Långvik Congress Wellness hotel

So today was the first training day at Långvik. The day started really good, I picked up one of my c:o workers from the railing station and we went to the hotel.
It was kinda blurry, we didn't exactly know we're to go and the receptionist was busy talking on the phone. But after a while the headmaster of the hotel came to meet us in the lecture hall.
We came in to a beautiful auditorium with a wonderful relaxing spirit. Some candles and mood lights. And an enormous tv screen! It reminded me of a cinema...

Got a bunch of papers and went almost the whole
day true everything! I must be honest, in the end I was so tired of just sitting and listening. Really hoping that we'll get to do some practical training tomorrow!

Anyways, here's some pictures from the hotel! (..I will put more pictures later)

Anyway, now I'm going to drink tea, take a shower and then watch some tv and go to sleep!
C ya!
