Madness and mayhem

It’s been absolutely crazy this past week.. Or actually these past three weeks! 🤣 – And it will only get crazier…

We have had my three bonus kids / my better half’s three awesome kids, staying here for the past three weeks, and I’ve loved every minute of it! They are here every year for three weeks (we live in Denmark and the kids lives in the UK where my better half is from). We have missed them terribly this year, and it’s been so good to catch up with them and spoil them all rotten.

This year we have been staying for a week at my brothers house, at Lolland – which has been absolutely amazing! So much space and so many rooms, one for each of the kids even! That’s been pretty awesome, and it’s got us thinking.. We need a bigger place, we really do.

My bigsister always sends me a bunch of links to fantastic houses that’s for sale, most of them so expensive, that it would put you in debt for a lifetime! But at the end of week two, whilst having the kids over, my sister managed to send me yet another link, this time it was a house that’s affordable, with the rooms we need and a fairly big and private garden..

We were suspicious really.. Looking at the pictures, wondering which flaws would be the final deal-breaker, but as things progressed, the house just got even more interesting.

We called the estate agent up, and asked for a viewing, and we had a look at it. We weren’t disappointed.. It was as nice as on the pictures and very cozy, it had a feel to it! Best of all, it was huge…

Before we knew it, we made an offer, the offer was bargained with a little, but then accepted and our bank approved of the loan, oh my god I’m just speechless!

My mind is an absolute mess, with so many different emotions, and it comes in waves.. Happy, anxious, giddy, excited, drained, melancholic – the list goes on and on, but most of all, I’m relieved.. Finally a new chapter of our lives are starting, and we are on our way to become house owners!

We are about to sell the apartment now and hopefully it will be a quick sale, for the right price. I bought the place 8 years ago, and we love our little home, but it’s also time for something bigger and we are ready for our forever home now, and I believe that we might have found it ❤️

The following weeks, we will be having a professional photographer snapping pictures of our home, and it will shortly after be up for sale, it’s so surreal! 😱😄

Life, love and the future!

Lately I am trying to get ready for my education and trying to get our home clean and good looking! Strange – but true none the less..

Let’s just be honest, I have never ever been the stay at home wife kind of woman! I am messy and a typical “oh where did I put that stupid remote, I know it’s here somewhere” kind of person, everywhere I seem to go, I leave a trail of mess behind me, and I don’t mind much, but I got older and more aware of it, and I am actually changing – who knew?! 😂

I never thought that day would come, where I keep thinking that I need to do the laundry else it would pile up, or I would remember to put all my make-up back in perfect order, else it would look cluttered and messy, but lately I do. (Or ever since my fiancé moved in!) My fiancé have had a very good influence on me I have to say, he has made me see how lovely our home can look when it’s clean and organized and he is good at reminding me to just put things back after using them, it’s much easier than running around cleaning at the last minute, before guests arrive, or when you get too annoyed at the clutter!

I think being engaged to him has somehow made me more grown up, more determined and less messy, and yeah it sounds so cliché, but he makes me into a better person. 

I make little to do lists now, I make grocery lists, I make sure to always plan ahead on shopping so we never need anything badly and I feel amazing for doing so! Who the hell am I and where is Mia?! 😜

We have started to sort out food, so we do a “cooking list” where we write what food we wanna cook and on what day, it’s gotten so much easier to prepare meals and shop for them, that’s the God honest truth.. Thank god for lists! (Oh dear I’ve become like my mother!) 

So right now I am passing time at home, waiting for the 29th of February, by cleaning and making my little “stay at home wife” lists! I am not perfect at it, but I’m getting there.

Do you guys have any strange lists you make? I am thinking I might need more lists in my life, cause it keeps you organized and I want 2016 to be the year of organization and calm, and my lists makes me more calm and a lot less stressy and forgetful – who dosnt what that?

Here is a few pictures of our home right now, we are constantly redecorating, because we wish for a different look in our bedroom and living room right now – we have started to save up for a new bed as we speak, cause the one we have now is terrible!

   
Our new Danish designer table, lamp and chairs! The chairs are pretty well known in Denmark and are called the 7 chair from Arne Jacobsen, the table is a Fritz Hansen and the lamp is from Fritz Hansen too. Now we just need some more pictures up on the walls, but it starting to look very cozy already.

 

My fiancé changed the paintings a few months ago, so now my bedroom screen painting is in the living room and vice versa, it really suits it a lot better! The lamps are old Japanese lamps and my sofa is white leather – I know white, but I love it. It looks so good now after we got the floors sanded down in the hallway and the living room.

Construction site!

There is no such thing as home! – But you never realize just how much crap you have till you got to pack it away! 

I am not moving! I am just redoing my floors, cause their all yellow and old and need some serious love and care, I have been wanting to renew my floors for ages now, and I am finally doing it, I am getting the living room floor and my hallway floor done, it’s gonna look real nice, I can’t wait till it’s all done. But right now – it looks like a battle-scene.. 

   

     

My dog is very unhappy, he misses the couch, which is now standing outside on my balcony.. Gosh it’s a little comical and sad at the same time, my living room looks horrible like this, way too empty, there’s even an echo! I hate it, my place is so homely, warm and welcoming – that’s what I love about it, but now it’s all empty and I just found out, that I hate that more than anything! I want to hide away in my bedroom, cause a big empty room is just so darn depressing! – I don’t get how people can live minimalistic, it’s too empty, too depressing..

But I did it, me and my best friend Jane did it all by ourselves – am pretty proud, I love not having to involve my family too much, it’s my place and I want to do things by myself, but Jane helped and she has been brilliant – all the heavy stuff got lifted away and now I just have to take away all the smaller things, which is fine by me!

The floors are gonna be done with a tiny bit of light tint, so they are matching my style, then two layers of varnish on – the strongest one you can get, and it will last a long, long time! I can’t wait to see the result, I think it will look gorgeous! – I’ll make sure to do before and after pics for you guys!

See you online guys! x

So have yourself a merry little Christmas now..

 

Did a lot this few weeks, took care of my sisters dog, with my friend Jane, and baked and made oatmeal balls, had my dining room table decorated and am counting the days till Christmas eve, missing my grandmother a lot, she was always a big part of Christmas, and her not being here has left quite a gap in my life. She was the only grandparent I ever knew, so it hurt loosing her back then. I will manage, but I miss her, every day.

Have been cleaning a lot lately, been up early, and to bed early too. I feel pretty active and productive now, before this I was a bit of a night owl, and didn’t sleep much. I was tired constantly and it sucked.

My mom has a birthday just around the corner, 8th Dec, so I have been out, finding her a present, which wasn’t easy! We are going to have a really nice dinner with her, and celebrate her, with style! (As she deserves!)

Right now, I can’t sleep, the storm outside is pretty rough, been a long day, with very stormy weather, and a lot of ice cold rain and wind.. It has been one of those days, where you just stay indoors, and watch movies, drink coffee and eat sweets.. So I did exactly that! Watched a pretty good movie on Netflix, which is my new drug by the way! Its amazing.

My dog Sammi has been a pain today, he was so restless today, and wanted to play around a lot.. Guess the weather bored him, and we had my friends dog Sisse here too, and they enjoyed each others company a lot today, especially when Sammi was so bored.

Been cleaning a bit, while listening to some music, was nice to get some stuff in order, and it looks neat here, feels pretty good to have a clean home! I am normally a messy person, who doesn’t clean like a white whirlwind like my mom, I am relaxed and like it a little messy actually. But lately, I have felt pretty damn good while cleaning and putting things away, and having it neat and tidy! Hm am I growing up? I sure hope not! *YUCK*

 

Keep warm and cozy out there people!

xoxo

Spring is near

 Spring is upon us

Spring is almost here, atlast! Its been snowing quite a lot here in Denmark, but now its melting away, the sun is shining and the sky is so amazingly blue! I have been having one of those very rare ”cleaning fits” – so I have been vaccuming, washing the floors, cleaning the kitchen, dusting and putting things in their rightful places. It just looks amazing now, and im pretty pleased – as I always am when I do clean. Now im just sitting in my armchair, trying to relax a bit before im going to an open house thing with my little sister, to see if its anything intresting for her to live in, who knows, im hoping atleast!

 

Me and one of my best friends Line, is going to go for sushi soon, we are waiting for a package from smartdog.dk and that gives her a great reason to visit me again! Then we are gonna go out for sushi and shopping, and see if there is anything we cant live without! Im really looking forward to that, we see very little of each other recently due to exams, jobs, education and boyfriends.. Busy little bees!

 

Thursday I am going to a birthday, one of my great friends Carsten is turning 22 and is having a huge party at his house, it will be fun, I just dont quite know what to get him? But I will find out, and I know him, he is happy that we are just joining him, and I truly enjoy spending time with him, he is a great friend.

 

Next month im going to an 80’s party, jeez what to wear? I really have no idea, and im thinking about just wearing regular party clothes, cause im just not that into the whole 80’s theme! Maybe you guys could link me some clothes styles from the 80’s?

 

This month is full of things to do, and so is the next month, today will be one of the more relaxing days, cause I really dont have that much planned. I think Im going to watch some movies now, read my Anita Blake book and maybe wash a load of laundry, would be nice to get that done too.. Living in my own place has made me busy, but also pretty content, I am thriving a lot more, living here on my own, with my fiancé, and soon, the summer is here, and everything will be so much easier, cause the warm sun just gives more energy! All this winter is getting on my nerves, and I just hope this is the last snow melting now.. I cant wait to lie in my garden char, reading a book, enjoying the sun on my face..

A relaxing Sunday

Relaxing or boring?

Well I don’t quite know where to place this day, relaxing or just so relaxing that it has become boring? Im a little dissapointed in myself, cause I usually have a way of making my days quite intresting and special, but today has been a Sunday with nothing to do. I feel like doing something, anything! I spend the morning cleaning my kitchen, simply cause it needed cleaning -badly! Im a kind of girl who just takes my time, and I dont stress on things and get them done fast, and I dont make a mess of my home either, its a relaxed type of home, and I live neat, but not spotless! I can’t be in a home without a little mess, a magazine on the table, a cardigan on the sofa, that kind of stuff.. I guess its just me, Im in no way a cleaning-maniac!

But today the kitchen got cleaned extra neat, and it felt pretty nice. But what to do the rest of the entire day? Well.. I decided to watch movies, Eragon – I got it on blueray, and I have always been into the adventure/fairytale kinda stuff, so I am gonna watch some of that, and then im gonna clean our dining room table, I like to clean it twice a week completely, with soap, its just hygenic. We moved abit around on our dining room table last week, to make room for the new armchair we got, and its still awesome to sit in! I will post some pictures of how its looking now, I think its quite nice. (Now we just need to hang the lamp above the table different – damn!) But the whole place looks better with the table that way, and with our new armchair – more homey!

Have a nice Sunday everyone!

A once in a lifetime deal!

We bought our first real kitchen appliances a week ago, and now we got them home! We bought a stove, a fridge and a dishwasher! They are some of the top ones at the market, the fridge is a “No frost” fridge/freezer, and is therefore really easy to keep! The oven is an easy clean oven and you can buy some oven plate holders – spelled? XD but it helps keep the plates in the oven still, so if you check on your food, it won’t slip off your plate! The dishwasher is a very energy saving one, where you can choose to only wash glasses if needed (the top of the dishwasher) or only the dishes and knifes, forks and so on (the bottom of the dishwasher) or, you can choose to do it all, my choice really!

Here is some pictures of the appliances, I really just love them!
