Well hello there! I know I know, I´m not even going to start with a sorry it took me so long… Now that a lot of us are quarantined or just social distancing I thought it would be a great time to get back to the blog to give you something to read, perhaps some ideas as how to spend your days and also just to spend mine.

If you do not follow my Instagram we were on holiday the past week. When we left the situation was not so dire yet and we did not travel to an “epidemic area”. But now we are in a recommended self quarantine for the next few weeks. We are feeling well and healthy at this time but will keep our distance to people, stay away from school and hobbies etc. We obviously cancelled our ski-ing trip from next weekend and are doing home- school for now.

But instead of talking too much about the actual virus ( as I am not an expert on the matter) I thought we would make this place a lovely little spot for us all to find fun ideas to do with our kids, for what to cook whilst you are mostly at home etc. What do you think? I understand very well that the situation is serious and it has a lot of other than health related effects on us all, some more than others so I am not trying to ignore the fact. But I also know that we all see a feed of  horrific articles flash through our eyes when we open any kind of social media forum so I though we can all use a space like this to get our minds of it for a while. To give us a little breather if you will! What do we think?

I´m also a very good listener so if you have anything that makes you feel very anxious at this time you can send me a private message on Instagram. I really don´t probably know how to help you but I know it sometimes helps just to get to say it out loud to someone.

Try to keep a positive mind and I´ll see you here soon!

Well this post was just what I needed – a break from everything gloomy, serious and worrying. I know too it is serious, after all me, my son and hubby all belong to risk group like, of course, do the grandparents. So there are many reasons to be worried and concerned. At the same time I think it is good to relax and think something else and fill your head with happy thoughts and ideas. For our family, life is still pretty much normal; school is open and remote work is the word of the day. Hobbies are on-hold but at the same time spring is here so there are plenty of options for hiking and other outdoor things. Of course we too cancelled some near future travelling plans but there will other times for that.

I can’t wait to get some easy and comforting lunch tips through the blog <3

Stay well and safe <3

There is and was no such thing as “non-epidemic area” You travelled anyway. You had your splendid holiday in spite of e.g. the instructions of the authorities. So would You please stop the hippocratic nonsense now.

Lady like, you are right at this moment but the situation was different when we left and there were no such instruction then. The situation has been changing very rapidly as have the instructions of THL and the government. Otherwise we would not have travelled ( and we have obviously cancelled all our further travel plans and are quaranteened to safeguard the health of others). This life is a game of could have, should have, would have´s but in situations like these it is more constructive to be kind and understanding. Let´s all just try to do our very best to make sure we contain this situation as best we can. Lot´s of good thoughts to you Siina, I hope you are well.
