Sunday 16th April
The sun finally arrived so me and G decided to go for a really long walk. It was so nice to get out of the house. Now I am a pretty chill person, but watching TV for almost two full days, will even make my skin crawl. Haha maybe it was because I never was in charge of the remote.
And although I like his family, the only reason I was there was to spend time with him. So I was excited to hang out just the two of us, well Yoko tagged along so the three of us. Yoko seemed happy too because she was jumping around like a rabbit. I wish I had this access to nature all the time. I'm hoping for loads of days like these!

I'm not sure who's the most photogenic one G or Yoko

The plan was that I would be back in Malmö around nine. Do I would have to leave around six, to have a time between the trains. This didn't turn out as planned.
The first issue was that you could only buy tickets for the first one, on the train itself, with cash. I don't have danish money.
The second one was that his family wanted me to stay for dinner. G said that I would've time to stay if he drove me to Hillerød, instead of me taking the train there.
I would then take the train from there to Hellerup, normally I could go straight to the central station in Cph. But because on the problem with the rails I couldn't do that. That whole ordeal added about twenty minutes. Ugh
But I stayed for dinner, which I kinda regret doing. The food was great, but everyone talked Icelandic throughout the whole meal. Which was odd because they usually talked so that I was included. And the most annoying part was that I missed the last train to Sweden because of it!
Yeah because the annoying rail thing would start at 21.00 on the bridge between Sweden and Denmark. We didn't know about that, but I ended up missing the train by just ten min.
Instead I had to take the buss...
If I didn't have plans I wouldn't care too much, but I did. So I was freaking out a bit, I mean if the party/dinner ended before I got there then I could've just stayed. So on the way over the bridge I figured I could win some time if dad picked me up in Hyllie.
After some convincing he agreed. I ended up arriving to the dinner a little over an hour than planned. So it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. But it wasn't perfect either. I'm so happy that I made it though, holidays should be spent with loved ones. And I checked a lot of people of that day, my guy, my dad and mom and some of my closest friends.
It was a great Easter this year 🐥🐣

See you soon xx

Saturday 15th April
We were both woken up by the sound of both our alarms at eight. God that was intense. We quickly turned them off and went back to sleep. But it must've woken his sister up as well, because soon after that she went to walk the dog.
G must've know that the whole house would wake up soon because he tuned on a movie. I was still tired so I would've wished for more time but, I guess you can't sleep too long in the living area.
It was nice to be crawled up with G though.

I feel awkward with pda in front of his family. I know they probably don't care, because his brother basically makes out with his girlfriend in front of everyone.
Which makes me feel awkward too.
I feel bad for G though, I've rejected him so many times during the trip. I just can't it feels wrong to spoon and such in front of his mom.
I actually had to apologise to him and explained why I was rejecting him. Haha is it just me?


When the really bad Adam Sandler movie was over, the whole family had breakfast tougher. Except for grandma, who was still sleeping, I was so jealous. After breakfast she did get up though, and both her and her husband left. I don't know why because the probably told everyone in Icelandic. 😂 I wanted to go for a walk because it was snowing and it looked so peaceful. But the peacefulness didn't last long when the snow tuned into intense snow rain. I mean it was pouring down. Apparently the rest of us had plans too. Again I don't know where I just tagged along.

G was driving and I sat shotgun. On the way there his mom told me we were going to a fisherman village to eat ice cream. I just looked out the window blurred by all the rain, and laughed. Mmkay... I guess that was an other summerhouse tradition.

As we made to the ice cream shop, in the pouring rain, I was thinking of an excuse not to spend money. G usually pay for everything but I felt bad to expect him to do it. Especially since it was quite expensive. We ended up sharing and I let him have the most of it. The plan was to take a walk along the shore, but the weather made it impossible. So we just drove up to beach and sat in the car watching the ocean. Haha I thought it was so weird.
On the way back we got a call from the grandparents, they were locked out of the house since we had the key.
Luckily we were less than five min away.

The rest of the day was spent on the couch. The rain didn't allow us to do much more than that. It was nice to chill, but when G fell asleep I was bored out of my mind. So I decided to practice French braiding. And honestly how do you people with "fine" straight hair do it?! It was so hard to keep the braids in place. When I do something to my hair, it stays. But with his there was so much to hold on to. His hair isn't straight, it has a wave to it, so that helped a bit. But damn. As soon as I let go the braid would just unravel itself. His sister thought it was fun though.

Fall asleep in my lap and I'll braid your hair

Have a good one xx

Friday 14th April
My weekend started early with a looong train ride. On my way to G's grandparents summer house somewhere deep in Denmark.😂
They live in Iceland but have a summer house in DK to spend time with their daughter and grandkids.

I got and invite from G a couple of days ago. And I've got to admit that I was a little hesitant, my first issue was money. Since I barely worked in February, saying I'm broke is a bit of an understatement. The trip there from where I live and back would be over 400kr, money that I don't really have.
My second issue was that there was going to be eight people in a small two bedroom summer house. And I don't mean anything by it but they're not my people. Sure Ive met all but his grand parents more than a couple of times, but still.
I'm my moms only child and I've spent most of my life with her, so I'm basically an only child.
I'm not used to being cramped with a bunch of people. Especially since G and I would sleep in the living room. It might sound silly if you come from a big/medium family but it made me a little anxious.
My third problem was that I also wanted to go to our annual Easter dinner with our family friends.

I was really happy for my invitation so after a lot of considering I decided to go. But not for the full four days instead I'd leave on Sunday evening. I wouldn't make it for the dinner itself on Sunday but I wouldn't miss out on spending time with our self made family. And G would pay half of the traveling costs.


Apparently Easter is the time that both Sweden and Denmark update their rails. This meant that the trip would be more expensive than I first anticipated. But it was too late to back down now. I met up with G in Hillerød and we took an other train from there. When we arrived at Vejby st. We got picked up by his grandfather.
I was surprised to find that he was kinda short, I guess the height is Ailey on his dads side. They had the same nose though and they share the same name. I went for the handshake but he went for the hug. He was super polite he even opened the car door for me.

On the short car ride to the house he asked me a couple of questions. Like what I study, that's a thing that everyone in G's surrounding asks. It's not even do you study? Like it's a given that you study at my age. I don't know it makes me feel like a let down when I tell them that I work in retail. Which is odd because I couldn't care less about what people do. I'm more interested in what happens on their free time, but maybe that's just me.

The house was really cute, with a garden and a fire place. It was tiny but homey. G's brother and his girlfriend was laying on the couch when we came in. And his grandma was in the kitchen making her "famous" soup. Now G's grandma is the sweetest person ever. I instantly took to her, and I think she liked me too. She was so funny and she made me feel welcome.
G's mother and sister came about an hour later with Yoko.

Dinner wouldn't be ready for a while so G borrowed his moms car and drove us to the beach. The beach is right next to a cliff and hills. So it made for a good hiking ground. The area was gorgeous. And the beach was a rock one, so I joked that it was like a colder and dirtier version of Nice.
We walked for a bit before it started to rain.
Apparently it's a summer house tradition to have dessert every day. I'm not sure if that's true but G said that we simply had to go buy some. He's got a sweet tooth like no other.
We ended up buying loads of ice cream, cream and strawberries. He also bought chocolate milk that he heats and use as chocolate sauce.
F**king weirdo 😂

When we got home the food was already on the table. The soup was awesome. It was a shellfish and fish soup, aka everything I love! I was surprised though that G's brothers girlfriend could eat it, since she's vegetarian. Maybe she was just being polite, heck I would probably do the same thing. The girlfriend had to rush through dessert though as she was leaving for Germany (she's German). G was driving both her and his brother to the station.
I was a little nervous to be left alone, but it would've just been weird if I tagged along.

There was no need to be nervous though. It was so natural we were having such a good time. Laughing and talking. Haha I barely noticed when G came back. The rest of the evening was spent watching series. We watched a weird French detective series. After that everyone drifted away to their quarters. Until it was just me G and his mom watching "Gone Girl". Yes it was awkward... By this time I was exhausted, so when the movie finally ended I did a silent cheer. Kinda the same one I usually do when my work shift ends. 😂 I slept like a baby that night.

See you soon xx

So my best friend Isis, should complete in the best friend award because she would win hands down.
Today I had to go to the post office to pick up a parcel. Which turned out to be a 4 kg care package, a birthday + Christmas present but like on crack!

What's in the baaaax?!

We only get to see each other about once a year, so just to see her hand writing on the box made me thrilled. But when I opened it to find more than one gift I was baffled.

On what planet could she possibly be a bad friend?!

It turned out to be eight very personalised gifts. Each one of them had a little note on them. And the box was filled with glitter stars!

Crying

Ahhhh

I honestly don't know what to say. I feel extremely loved, and lucky! I'm so happy to have such a kind, loving and caring best friend. The fact that she knew exactly and I mean exactly what I need in my life right now. It proves that even though she's miles away she still knows me and what's happening in my life. Haha it could be that she reads my blog but I think it's a little more than that. Long distance is hard but we're winning! I love you so much Isis and I miss you everyday day. It's not too long now though until we see each other. I can't wait! ❤️❤️❤️

Have a good one xx

Thursday 13th April

Today was supposed to be an early and short shift, but it turned into a long one. I'm not complaining I need the money but damn I was tired when I got home. But I was happy to find an easter egg from mom. She always gets me one but I guess I just thought she wouldn't this year (I am 22). So I was really happy that she did!

Wednesday 12th April

I started my day with an early shift, but it was a short one. Which was perfect because I had plans with my man Simon. Last time was December, which isn't great but we're making progress. Hihi. We started with our usual walk, but it ended quickly because of the cold. I offered to get a Chai latte, so that we could sit somewhere. We sat there for hours and talked about the drama surrounding us, about the world, the society we live in, and we touch apron the meaning of life. We always go for the big discussions but that's our dynamic.


He had plans with an other friend a couple of hours later, but about an hour in to our discussion, he texted her if it was okay if I joined them. She said yes, but that she would be late.

We sat at the cafe for a couple of hours, before we got hungry both of us happen to be broke so we didn't want to go for anything big. After a couple of suggestions, I suggested that we'd just buy some bread. So we went to the grocery store and bought a couple of pastries and strawberries. The grocery store is in a mall so we found somewhere to sit and started our little picnic.


While talking some more we started to talk about ice-cream, more precisely the best ice-cream in town. It didn't take long before Simon decided that we'd had to go there. He texted his friend, who wasn't convinced but when he said it was his treat, she said yes.

We met up with her an hour later at the central station, where she picked us up in her car.

Then we had the best ice-cream in town. His friend was really cool, we all went to high school together. They were in the same class, and she was one of the very few that he didn't hate there.

She'd spent a year in Australia for a theater school and in August she's going to an other one in New York! I'm always so impressed with people who are so actively trying to live their dream, I wish I was one of them but I'm too scared.

When the ice-cream place closed she drove us both home.

See you soon xx

Monday 10th

I haven't been working a lot lately (not by choice). So when an other day without work came by; I decided to stay in bed. But then my phone rang, it was G telling me that he'd been put on mandatory vacation. He's a working bee so I just figured he would find a way to work on something anyway. Instead he told me that he was on his way to Malmö! I couldn't contain my excitement, yay! He was about an hour away, so I took a quick shower and then did my best to make my room look decent.

Waiting do the train

The sun was shining but not as bright as my smile, as I was making my way to the train station! We hadn't seen each other in a week, which I know isn't that big of a deal, but still... He told me that he was hungry but that he also wanted to do some shopping. So that's what we did. It was no nice spending the day together, but it felt a bit odd doing it on a Monday. Haha we usually only find time on weekends.

Tuesday 11th

I woke up to a message from work, asking if I could come in at three. G was helping his friend moving at five so I agreed. We went up and had our usual pancake breakfast. After that he asked if we could go to an art gallery, because he thought that would be romantic. I agreed even though I thought it might be a little tight on time. Luckily for us the exhibition we went to wasn't that big. It was weird af though, I didn't get it at all. When we went out I asked if he liked it. He just said "nope". Oh well, you win some and you lose some. Afterwards we went for a little walk before I had to leave for work. Two days well spent!

So if you haven't noticed yet I love clothes. Now I do most of my shopping at H&M because it's easy and they have a lot of good stuff. However I am a special snowflake (hey at least I'm self aware) so when ever I find a new place to shop I get excited. Especially if the clothes are a little quirky/ unusual. A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon a Instagram called CutieKill, and I fell in love with the cuteness. I just had to get something from there, and I'm so happy that I did!

The skirt was exactly what I wanted, and the parcel came with a little handwritten note. I know it's marketing but I thought it was a really nice touch.

Feeling like a cheeky school girl 😂

Monday 3rd April
So I've had my braids in for over a month now so it was time to take them out. It was a bittersweet thing giving them up, since I absolutely loved them. I loved everything about them, the length, the ombré thing and mostly the fact that didn't have to style it. I mean I woke up everyday with a complete hairdo.
Even though I'll miss them I'm also excited to see my curls again.
The unbraiding took up all of the day. I tried to convince G to help out but he did such a poor job, so it was a little contre-productive.
As I was unbraided them I was left with a big Afro, witch felt like a perfect photo op.

Feeling myself

Bye bye

I started my day next to my guy, which was nice. I had to get up early to go to work, which was less nice, but hey money.
The work day went by quickly so it wasn't so bad. But when I got home I went into complete chill mode. I spent my evening, with a mud mask on my face, ice-cream in my mouth and new music in my ears.
A well spent evening.

Trying out a mud mask
