I was hoping I would have a bunch of pictures to show today, but it has been raining and been really cold so I never got outside like I hoped. Instead I spent the whole day just resting. I slept in, then I spent the whole day in the couch in front of the open fire, watching some TV shows I missed out on, since I worked a lot this week. It may sound like a waste of time, but it was very much needed. Working in a store that is open seven days a week makes having two days off in a row seem like pure luxury, and when I only have one day to spare I always have loads to do. I can’t remember when I last allowed myself to do nothing at all and just let body and mind reload. Even though it was raining and I didn’t get to go outside as I had hoped, the idea to spend the weekend in the cabin was the greatest idea. I had never let myself do this at home. I would have found plenty of things I just had to do.
A thing about this place is that it always makes me feel safe, comfortable and calm. I’ve spent every summer here since 1991. I was born in September 1989, so I can’t even remember a life without this place. My grandparents rented the house for a few years, and we spent the summers with them and my aunts family. After a few years Grandpa and Grandma decided to buy the place, and when they passed away my Dad (and Mum) inherited it. I’m so happy they have kept it, because I really feel at home here. My own magical place. So many memories, and even more to come.

couldn’t come someone else took possession of the bed.
