I did my first kettlebells class today and it was intense. It was a type of HIIT training, so let me just tell you that I was done after that class. I stopped by Planet Organic on the way home, due to their amazing smoothies. It may not be the best thing for my wallet, cause it's a bit pricey. Still worth it, though haha. I do recommend people to visit PO cause it's the perfect place to get a healthy and fresh fika(?!)

Now, off to my guilty pleasure Great British Bake Off.

After waking up a bit later than usual, I got myself to the gym. I did core today, but I had some struggles due to pain in my coccyx (?!) I did manage to finish my workout, so I was pleased. Thereafter, some shopping was done, cause I needed to buy workout gear, a big teacup and a water bottle. At lunch time, me and Sanna returned to our favorite Café for some lovely salads. They were amazing - I'm so happy I've found that place! I'm now drinking some tea in my new cup and watching some youtube videos. Even though people in England drink a lot of tea, they've got the smallest cups! So I needed to buy a bigger one, cause I love tea.

My Sundays ends up very often with me having the worlds longest breakfast ever and binging something on youtube all day. Today, I found myself falling into a rabbit hole of Ellen Degeneres channel. She always cracks me up. Wishing that someday, will be the day I go on Ellen haha.

In other news, I've finally joined a gym! I'm so happy to get back on track with my exercise. It's the perfect thing to do after dropping off the girls at school or whenever! My body is so sore after my last workout, but that feeling is the best one ever. To know you that you’ve really worked hard.

I did not have a bucket list of things I wanted to do in London when I moved here. One of the only things I knew I wanted to do here back home, was to find cute local cafés to enjoy lovely coffee and lunches in. Finally, today was the day, I found my new favorite place. Me, Sanna and some other au pairs planned to go out for lunch today. One of them, Loreen, knew the perfect spot and let me tell you that she was right. Just a 3 minute walk from town hall, there was this cute corner café called Café Fleur. The decor was lovely and the menu was not a let down. I went for the chilli avocado toast with a flat white. I'm definitely coming back!

My host mom got one urgent call from work, so she needed me to drop off the kids. Wednesday's are usually my day off, but I didn't really have anything special planned for this morning, so I covered for her. When I got home from the school, I made sure I had everything for my trip into town. At 10:30 I took the tube to Covent Garden, because they main goal today was to upgrade my phone at apple store to a new one (!?) My wallet didn't approv that much, but I'm super pleased with my purchase. Everything went quick and easy, thereafter I bought some tea at Costa and took the bus back home. I love taking the bus, whereas you get to see more surroundings than going by tube and it's cheap.

My new phone's set up and ready to use. The expectations for this phone is pretty high, I'm excited to start using it for real.

Right now, my friend Emma is keeping me company over Skype. That's the way to communicate with friends when you live in different countries.To be honest we're not really talking, we're just having each other in the background to feel less lonely haha.

I started my morning at 7:40 to make sure the girls had started eating their breakfast. The youngest one have morning running mile with her class, so we needed to go a bit earlier to get there in time. When I dropped both off them at school, I returned home to get ready for the weekly au pair meet up. I went there with Sanna. She's my next door neighbor, who is also an au pair.

The meet ups are made for au pairs in my area to get to know each other and I like them a lot. They're perfect opportunities to improv my english as well as getting to know new people. After the meet up, I went home to make some lunch and catch up some of my favorite podcasts. Surprisingly, my host mum was free that afternoon so she said that she could pick up the girls after school, instead of me doing it and I appreciated it a lot.

After supper, my host mom left and I had babysitting the rest of the evening. Me and the girls played some Ludo (board game) and when we finished it was time for bed. I'm now done with all the chores for the evening and I'm ending this day with a new episode of The British Bake Of.
