A rainy day is as good as any for painting with watercolours outside.

Holiday hangover cure

I have some good cures for holiday hangovers. And I don´t mean the ones that come from sipping too much rosé.

Sometimes getting back to work and school mode may seem hard, so it´s nice to ease oneself to the everyday rhythm. For me the trick is planning a few trips here and there to look forward to. I read somewhere that the actual planning and anticipation of a trip can be as, or even more, satisfying than the actual holiday in itself. So I have some ladies weekend flights booked for London in September with great company and fabulous restaurants to look forward to. We also booked our winter holiday trip to Disney World and Sea World in Florida in January. I have never been to either but my husband has great childhood memories from them and we have been waiting for Bubble Gum to be a little bigger so the trip would make more sense. This is the perfect time to go when they are 6 and 8 by the time the trip comes. If you have any tips for me to either amusement park ( or Miami & Orlando) please leave them in the comments below! This will be a trip made entirely with the kids in mind.

Another great holiday cure is to book some dinner tables and movie & wine dates with my girlfriends and our couples friends. When the schools and hobbies start we easily get sucked in to this routine where we don´t see so much of our friends. So I like to make dinner plans and book babysitters well in advance to know I have something to look forward to. I feel good when I know I have made an effort with friends.

Have a beautiful weekend

We had an amazingly beautiful sunset on the island this week. I somehow love those gorgeous sunsets that are followed by grey mornings when you wake up to the sound of rain. If it was up to me those sunset evenings should be spent outside just sitting on the rocks and taking in natures magical show and those rainy mornings should be spent under the duvet reading books and sipping hot coffee or tea. This week I was specifically taking in the holiday feeling of not having to hurry anywhere. Making most of being lazy and making the time last a little longer. The evening slowly gliding in to the night and the morning stretching to the day but no one really caring.

Have a fabulous weekend dear Lattemamma readers! Next week we return to normal routines but I think we will try to spend all possible free weekends on the island as long as we can. If the weather is like it was last year we may even be able to come here still in October…
