The Arctic: It's You. Not me

We're leaving these blizzards (yes, still) for two weeks at Gran Canaria. I wish I could tell The Arctic it's me, not you. But I can't. April in the Arctic sucks.

This is our official summer holiday, since the summer holiday will be spent having a baby.


* Eat all the fried squid I can.

* Use my brain cells on some decent literature (for the two hours a day we're outsourcing the children to the activity club, will they end up like this, ha-ha) like The Bad Girl by Mario Vargas Llosa.

* Teach my six year old to swim, as swimming in the Arctic is Science Fiction.

* Do plenty of holiday people watching.

Or maybe I'll just sit on a sunbed all day.

The Bridget Jones denial method will stop me from reminding myself that we don't have an entrepeneur, a kitchen or a bathroom in the new house. (Denial can apply to many other areas in life, just try. It works in a very pleasant, short term way)

See you soon!

Enjoy a lot and try:
papas fritas (fried potatoes)
mojo picón (chilli peper)
and enjoy the sun and good weather...take care of the sun!

Have a great holiday! I have a cartoon on my kitchen bulletin board of a woman saying to her friend, "I feel much better now that I'm back in denial". Just forget about the things you have no control over and enjoy your time to the full!

Enjoy your time under the sun! take time to do ALL what you want, need, or feel like doing! even if it means not to do anything: that's what one calls "holidays"!

Have a great holiday! I am sure you'll enjoy the sunshine. I'm just back from 5 nights in France- great fun was had catching up with old friends and meeting new members of their families, eating cake for lunch, drinking beer and seeing some amazing things!

Vitamin D reloading is important!

It looks just like the arctic in Wisconsin right now. I am going bonkers.

Tja, två gånger har jag varit hemma i Sverige under påsk för att sedan komma upp till Tromsø igen. Det är en duktig bitchslap och ångesten kommer ungefär samtidigt som jag stiger ut till taxikön på Tromsø lufthavn.
Det är beundransvärt att ni orkar. Om ni nu gör det.
