When I take the plane back to Finland, my heart is ripped in two pieces. I take half with me, but other half stays in France in my second home, with my sweethearts R and Léonie. Anyone who has two homes, two countries, knows how it feels. I love visiting both homes. Living in both homes. But I can´t have both at same time, so I needed to choose and it was time to visit Finland.
As I just bought a new phone, I have been snapping photos with it all the time. That much I forgot that I had my Canon with me. I still took some with it, but it was easier to drop the phone to the small bag and just go out.
I saw few friends of mine too, it has been so long. I feel very disconnected of the world of friends, I don´t have any in France right now. Not close ones at least, with whom I could share things, have a hobby and go out. Of course I have Raphaël but I would like to have a friend. Do you feel the same, that it is really hard to find good friends when you are an adult? Specially in another country.. I do feel alone there still.
We drove to Turku to help my sister to renovate her new home. It is a lovely wooden house in the center of Turku, but a lot of work to do in small time - I got little bit annoyed too to use my holidays (selfish) to paint and rip off the old kitchen.We have our own company for renovating projects so we (whole family) where there. I was the worst, as I have a quick temper in these things and my back and wrists are not made for heavy projects like this. So my dad was working like crazy whole week. No need to hire pro's as we have few in our family.
I did eat way too much chocolate and salmiakki, I went to see Stand Up Turku! -show [what was g r e a t] ate in a really good restaurant [pasta.. I was so sick after] went to the movies and walked out after one hour, it was first time ever I saw a movie full of crap [tree of life..] I ate the biggest muffin ever in my life, it took me whole day to finish it. I laughed. I spoke finnish. I was at home. Tomorrow my plane will leave back to the second home. I will see my sweethearts again. Luckily R has been keeping me up to date and sent me many sweet emails with photos of Léonie.
And I did color my hair here. I went 9 months without any color and now I saw how weird it did look in sunlight. So now I am brunette again. I like it.
And look who is saying hello!
Is it a cat or an owl?
I hope you have a great week, I will be back in France tomorrow.
I am living pretty exciting times, on thursday I am having my first day in school!
Wish me luck [M E R D E! in french]
