Sunday Morning

Good morning! We’re up already, dunno why but I woke up and could not go back to sleep. So I’m sitting here eating my carrot bread I baked yesterday and drinking coffee. We had a nice relaxing evening last night with luvely Guinness Stew which I recommend to everyone. It takes quite some time to prepare and the meat is quite expensive, but it is so worth it! mmm….
We started watching a movie starring Michael Scott from the office but Jon got so annoyed by it so we had to turn it off. I didn’t care, could have watched through but really it’s a waste of time coz I knew it was a rubbish movie.
We went for a run yesterday aswell and beat our record! not by much, but it gives you a bit of  boost when you do well, and can see your making progress. I love my new running shoes as well, they are so much better than my last ones.

Here’s some photos from yesterday:

baked carrot bread
The Guinness stew (Recipe:http://homecooking.about.com/od/soups/r/blss129.htm) Needs to simmer for like 2-3 hours. But yummy!
Mrs & Mr
Saturday dinner; Guinness stew, potato bake and yorkshire pudding
Parsley and pine apple – still life photo :D I used to buy containers with bits of pineapple and eat at work until a colleague said that I was stupid and that I should buy a pineapple and cut it myself – what a mission I thought! but actually, it was not too bad and it is so much cheaper. And tastes nicer aswell.
And then a few episodes of House through a glass of wine hehe

Roof man and running amateur

This morning a guy was sitting on the roof just opposite our window. They are demolishing the buildings there so soon we won’t have any privacy…
Also, i am trying to become a running freak. I even bought a magazine today; Runner’s World. I have made a playlist for tomorrow morning and I record every progress in an excel file. Good start huh?
My next plan is to make this an annoying running blog…. how do you feel about that? Leave a comment!

The move from Nilssonsberg

So, first weekend in May Jon and I went to Gothenburg to move all my stuff from my flat. I’ve given notice to my wonderful Nilssonsberg flat. End of an era. Well I suppose changes weren’t big we were moving there anytime soon anyway. So in a way it was a relief. My supportive parents came down to help us deal with the mess and all the stuff. They brought their camper van and we stayed in a beautiful camping.

Strange dreams

Hello good morning,
Jon is still at work and I’m drinking Cranberry juice to try to get some vitamin C in my system. Waiting for breakfast until he comes home. Had the weirdest dream that we moved to Sweden, but not planned and organised but just broke up and went. And the weirdest thing is I really missed p’boro. and also this woman had been filming this movie and I was in it and I was all worried that now she had to find someone to replace me and film all the scenes again… Such problems!
Last night I dreamt that I was working for the local newspaper and I was going to interview Moneybrother but I did not have any time to prepare and I just got closer and closer to the time of the interview. And when I finally was let backstage to see the guys in the band. I was struggling! All I asked about was Monster (the leadsinger’s old old band) and how much I loved them back in the days, completely irrelevant. And then the stupidest question fell outta my lips: “So, tell me how your new album was inspired?” and the singer: “Well, our new album is like half done… So it is still a work in progress”
Weird weird dreams…

Cinnamon buns

Buns
So, this whole cinnamon bulle situation went out of hand. Bake bake bake… Made a 100 kanelbullar. I am sooo tired now. And the dishes! Dishes! GAh, thank goodness it’s Saturday tomorrow. I am going to secretly rearrange the furniture in the livingroom tomorrow… Secretly from Jon that is, he is working tomorrow. Unless he sees this blog. Which is highly unlikely. :P
Here are some pictures from the baking:

Watching House
TV
And now we’re watching House before going to bed. Always House…

Sick study

Hello hello, gosh, I’m sick again. Got such a cold! Gah, just want to be well. Coughing my lungs out and running outta toilet paper from all the nose blowing.
Anyway, I’m trying to be a little bit productive here in my loneliness. Studying a bit, trying to complete a report I did a year ago and the deadline for the completion is the end of this month. I just want to get it out of my way so I can focus on my current project which I’m also way behind on. But I’m trying not to stress out about it too much. Just want to feel good and do my best.
This weekend is the first weekend at home in a long time. I am looking forward to it. Although last weekend in gothenburg was really great. A lot of “had to’s” but still got to see some people I’ve missed. Not everyone thought – so sorry about that.

New specs

Hello good evening!

I picked up my new specs today. I like them!

I have also given notice to my flat in Gothenburg today. End of an era indeed. Nice flat, but in a way I feel relieved. Need to plan for the move of all my stuff and so on. Hopefully we can take the car to Goth and pick whatever I want up and get rid of the rest.
Jon’s going the dishes. Weird time to do them, but hey should be glad he’s doing them at all right? I saw this dishwasher today for £75. A dishwasher would really make me happy.
I’m gonna continue enjoying my weekend now. xxx

Brit Awards and Pick & Mix

Hello, we’ve been watching the Brit Awards 2010. It’s ending now with a Robbie Williams medley. The award show was alright but nothing extraordinary.

Elaine came to visit this weekend. We walked around the city. I bargained a jacket, or so I thought when Jon made me aware of the fact that it was a Primark jacket, so I probably paid more than for a new one ;) Oh well – it was definitely worth 4.95.
Sunday we drove the a pub called the Goat in one of the villages outside P’boro I ordered Shepherd’s pie but I was disappointed. It tasted like mince with cheese on top.
Jon and I have started jogging now. We ran around the park yesterday (4 mins quicker than Saturday). It feels good to finally be doing something and hopefully get rid of the extra kilos that have been collecting themselves on both of us.
Work was good today. Got some work done on the Manual that I have to rewrite. Some parts more than other. I’m glad I managed to put some time aside today. It’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day stuff. But I do actually need to prioritize the Manual. It needs to be completed soon.
Oh well, leaving it here for now. Good night!
So Friday evening. Excitiiiing huh?! I am so tired. Been trinking juice and working on a school project. I finally finished a project I should have handed in a few weeks ago. Well, that is I finished the design of the broshure. Today I wrote the report. And sometime soon I need to to a sketch of the website. Daaah… A new course has started already which I am actually looking forward to. Going to learn PHP and so on.
Here is a list of things I don’t like:
  • Finding the two socks that fit together after doing laundry. I always seems to add up with similar style of socks but the one is slightly, slightly more washed out.
  • Doing dishes. I really don’t like it. I know I am the most skillful dish wash-upper in this household so I end up doing them most of the time. My best present now would be a dishwasher.

Well it’s a list, not the longest one, but still.

I did not go for a run the other day. It’s surprisingly easy to come up with excuses I’ve noticed. Although there has been snowing here this week.
Jon’s mum Elaine is coming for a visit tomorrow. Looking forward to that, I’m sure we’ll have interesting conversations and go for a walk or two.
I should probably retire now, how boring and “married-life” that might sound…
Good morning! I’m having striped swedish Kalle’s caviar on toast for breakfast this morning. I have to leave for work soon. There’s a lot of people off sick at the moment. Yesterday was really hectic and stressful. I am hoping that today will be a little less stressful. Probably not though… It’s just annoying because you plan on getting stuff done that you really need to get cracking with and all you end up doing is trying to get through the day and do everything you and your colleague off need to get done. Phew! But I’m not complaining really, still enjoying the role.
I’m hoping to go running tonight. Jon bought running shoes on Friday. Before he realised we’re basically bankrupt this month. :S The money I started saving up for a SA trip will have to go, otherwise we won’t be able to eat. Anyway what we CAN do and SHOULD is go out running. The weather looks fine so far. Probably a little cold but so what?
We didn’t get up to much this weekend that just passed. Jon and I got completely hooked on the Apprentice and watch a whole season. It’s so great! Brilliant!
We were invited for dinner at some friends house and we had a lot of fun!
Then I did a little bit of studying. Had to start all over with one of my assignments cause I wasn’t happy at all with the outcome and couldn’t really finish it off. But back on track now and feel a lot better about it.
I have to cycle to work now!
