Vaction update and an old hobby

Hey guys!

Time is running by so fast. It feels like our two week vacation just started, but it’s already over. We started our vacation with four days in Scotland. We flew to Edinburgh on Monday night and stayed there for two nights. It’s such a beautiful city. My second time there, and I was as amazed this time as the last. We didn’t do anything in particular, but just strolled around, did some shopping and enjoyed each other’s company. On Wednesday we took the train to Glasgow. I like Edinburgh more, but Glasgow is a quite nice city too in my opinion. Some people say Glasgow is gray and boring, but I’ve such great memories from my visits there, it still appeals to me. We met a few of my friends, that had also traveled from Sweden, and went to see the football game we had come for. Not a win at that game, but a good result for the return game at home, and we stood as winners in the end. Thursday we headed back home.

Back in Sweden we hang out with some friends, prepared for a party to celebrate our new apartment, had the party, watched more football games, celebrated my sister in law’s (to be) birthday and tried to relax as much as possible.

Tonight Martin is working his first shift after the vacation. Starting off with night shift gives me some well needed alone time. Don’t get me wrong, I love Martin and I love having him around, but I am one of those people that needs some time to myself every now and then to work properly.

When I packed all my things for the move I got reminded of all of my crafting material. I used to love crafting, but I haven’t spent time to it in forever. Today when I sat here all to myself, listening to the rain and wind outside, I felt like getting creative and make a card for my friend that just got a daughter. I felt a little rusty as I grabbed my stamps and pens, papers and scissors, but it was so much fun as I got started. It isn’t one of my most advanced pieces of work, but I loved doing it. Wouldn’t be surprised if some more of this happens soon.


I use Promarkers to colour and the stamp is from Panduro Hobby. Unfortunately I can’t remember where the papers and flowers comes from. It’s just things I found in my stash.

Do you have/used to have a hobby that you find your way back to every now and then?
