Hej Hej, Jag tror jag vågar säga att jag är tillbaka här. Som ni märkt har det varit en paus, välbehövlig sådan.
Det har inte funnits tid att sköta om bloggen. Och jag har inte heller velat riktigt. Det har varit Mycket annat detta året, minst sagt. Men min vän Jennie är en stjärna som nu hjälpt mig med ny header. Jag älskar. TACK JENNIE! Vad tycker ni?
Mer om illustrationerna ska jag berätta i nästa inlägg för varje del i bilden har en betydelse för mig och detta vill jag dela.
Denna update blev även på svenska denna gång, har inte riktigt landat i om jag ska köra engelska eller svenska, vad tycker ni?
Jag tycker mest om att skriva på engelska så jag blir bättre på språket, men det krävs en del fokus känner jag. Skriver jag på svenska kommer allt snabbare, for now kör vi på vad jag får för feeling. Hoppas det funkar.
3rd of feb is my mans birthday. We met a week before his birthday 8 years ago. Let me share how it happened.
I remember it clearly cause I said to my friend look at him! – Who? The blonde guy? – No the one to the right with a nose ring and blue eyes. Then he went to the pool bar and I was led alongside the pool. I said to my friend I’m gonna swim over and talk to him. So I did, but got so bloody nervous when I came to the bar, ordered myself a beer and swam back.
Amanda asked what happened! You’re back. I got so freaking nervous I lost my words. Literally shit me pants. hahaha I remembered this clearly, even writing it 8 years later makes me laugh! I’m never nervous. Best thing was that my friend snapped this photo just before I swam over as well. Great memorie to see this photo since we actually still together, after meeting this day in January 2012. Cool that is caught on camera.
Silly me being led sun bathing the blue eyed man swam over to me and asked about my tattoos . Never loved my tats so much as I did then, he asked why I’ve chosen some of them and why the spider web was on my elbow. We talked for a bit and Jake asked me to join in for a boat trip, you know those banna rides. I said no, I didn’t have any money to spend on like touristy stuff since I was a back packer, lived on like 400baht a day including food drinks and our room. But I said to him see you tonight.
Think we had 6 days together and then Jake left for Sydney again. 8 months went by and I moved back to Oz, to see him and here we are.
8 years has gone by so quickly and we’ve done so much together already. Our best thing accomplished must be little Finn Fletcher. Thank you Jake. Happiest of birthday to you! I hope you will enjoy Malta when we go in May. Love you xx
My heart is overwhelmed, by all your loving over my update through insta stories yesterday, with Finn being very ill . For weeks he’s been struggling. Nasty flu, ear infections, diarrhea and a fever which won’t go away. It’s been on and off since before New Years.
Many visits to the doctor and the 4th visit was to A&E (IR) yesterday morning because it was all too much.
Finn had an aggressive rash all over his body, blisters inside and outside his mouth and it felt like it only was getting worse every hour that passed.
When we arrived at hospital, Finn & Jake stayed outside in the car as he was covered in that rash – the hospitals are always cautious when it comes to dealing with a rash incase its contagious . It took 40 minutes until a nurse came and we spoke outside the waiting room to be on the safe side. At first glance she said it was 3 or 5 day fever because a rash often follows with that, however, this has been over 5 days so it all felt wrong.
We were placed in a room for 3 hours until the doctor came and then it started, the doctor came in and out a few times. It was all dealt with caution, and finally they suspected measles. There may be a chance he can have measles, two specialists came from Halmstad to have a look at him since the doctors in Varberg weren’t experts on this. For safety reasons and uncertainty the hospital wing (where we were) was sectioned off in fear of it being measles. It’s dangerous for elderly, young and very sick people. Many check ups later and we were finally on our way home. The most stressful day as parents that’s for sure. Finn was so good the whole time in the hospital, I wonder how he still can smile due to so much pain.
We had a long night with night mares and crying, bless him. Got such a sweet text from a friend who wanted to come by with lunch for us. We went out for a ride with the car to get Finn sleeping faster, when we got back there was a bag with home made fish soup two chocolate cakes and some quail eggs. Quail eggs are so so good for you, Camilla wrote us a note that said boil these in 3min and give Finn.
Camilla, you are the sweetest soul that drove 20km to give us all this. Thank you so much. At 3pm the doctor called to let us know it was NOT measles. Thank bloody god for this. But with ear infection, super high fever for weeks off and on, blisters inside and outside his mouth – which was a herpes infection. The rash all over his body is probably a reaction to the antibiotics he’s been given. So all this together at the same time made it all look like measles . For now we can only give him comfort, and painkillers till he’s better.
I wanted to write this post cause you were so many that reached out via my instagram and I haven’t had time to reply to all of you. With a community Instagram are when it comes to support. All our love to you guys, thanks for all the love and wishes.
You are probably wondering why I haven’t updated anything in a while well its because we’re battling the FLU at home. ALL three of us have been so ill, it’s been a hard period. Finn is still very poorly, bless him. In between the illness, there’s work to do.
I can share some of what I’ve been up to lately .
Met the girls for a Kustfolk meeting last Wednesday and we announced the market online on Thursday. So exciting! Save the dates folks! 24-25th of April.
I created #fglreuse for all of you to use if you want to buy something from our FGL collection that’s sold out or just sell what you no longer use, I love REUSE! Best thing ever. Clothes should be used, not forgotten in someone’s closet. SO, post a picture and use the tag! PLEASE.
I also started ”Last chance” … pieces that are low in stock. Before I can order anything new or restock old favorites to FGL, I need to sell out of pieces first. Thats a new rule and that feels amazing. The collection can’t be any bigger as keeping stock and lots variety cost too much for a small business like FGL.
Got in contact with a hotel, who would like to sell FGL pieces.
That’s one of my dreams… that FGL is available in other places than my store.
Looking forward to waking up tomorrow and starting fresh.
This week I might go to Stockholm, got invited to the Newbie & Boråstapeter event in Stockholm on Thursday.
Also I’m hoping to hug an old friend of mine… soon as we’re 100% healthy again. On Wednesday there’s gonna be a shoot for Kustfolk and FGL pieces with Jenny Brandt, she’s is the coolest cat I tell you. I do hope the final days of January are 1000% better than the previous weeks. Fingers crossed me lovers, before I end this update I want to say thank you for following. You are the best!
