Long time no write…

Hello there, is anybody still reading this blog (seeing I never blog)?

Anyway… hm, I’d like to blog more about my little wild almost two year old (baby) boy, but then on the other hand I don’t want to share too much information about him online. I probably could just blog and not share pictures though. Not sure.

So, life is good but I’m sick way too often. It started in the beginning of December when I had a pulled muscle, then a laryngitis, then a cold, and now a cold. I called sick into work so often the last 2,5 months I feel bad.
This time, about a week ago, Q had lots of yellow stuff in his eyes. I had to put in eye drops five times a day and clean his eyes a lot. It wasn’t a conjunctivitis, luckily, but still it was catching, as I got it three days later. The same thing – everything behind the nose is clogged, the tear fluid which is being produced cannot run through the nose so it just comes out of the eyes – yummy! I haven’t had something like that in 35 years but now, with a child, it’s never too late for the first time.

Q and I stayed home one week now, his eyes are pretty good now and I think I’ll put him into child-care tomorrow, so that he can play a bit with his friends. And mommy (me) will RELAX!

I always wondered how mothers do it – to be sick with a child. My answer is: Advil! 🙂 I’m not a fan of taking medicine but when I’m sick I pretty much take them all the time. Don’t blame me 😉

Q’s play corner in the living/dining room is finished now, here’s a photo

I moved it around differently but that’s all I wanted for him – a little table with chairs, a book shelf, a bench (which is also a shelf – whoa) where he can sit and read 🙂

How have you been?

The office / guestroom

So, our move is completed and seeing we moved into an apartment double the size of the old one, there is a lot to do. The office/guest room is done, I:

  • painted one wall blue
  • bought two IKEA Fjälkinge shelves (one big and one small) plus drawers (why have I never used those before, they are metal and look pretty neat)
  • pimped our IKEA desk and IKEA Alex drawer with some foil
  • pimped my pin board by painting it grey and putting some styrofoam around it

Found some cute boxes too although I wasn’t even looking 😀

The pull-out couch is on the side of the blue wall. I’m happy with the results esp. because I thought this would be the last room to get done.

Today the baby-bed is coming so the next room I’ll try to finish is my son’s room. I’m thinking of painting one wall green and/or buying a wall-tattoo. It’s nice to get rooms done where you feel comfortable in 😀

Does anybody else like to renovate their room/apartment?
