This is pretty much what happened these past days.. walking around Helsinki with my friend, eating lots of goodies, going to a concert (and realizing I'm too old for jumping around), enjoying days of spring, only to jump back to freezing.. come back spring, come back!

False Spring

Because the day after I took this photo it started snowing and + turned into - needless to say how "happy" I am!

Life Lately

I feel like I've been busier than usual lately, my social life seems to have bloomed all of a sudden due to some lovely fellow colleagues from my Finnish language course, I've started going to gym (OMG!) and next week I'll be completing the before mentioned course. Not only that, but I've been accepted to an intensive language course, with the start date 17.3.2014 and, holly-molly, it will end in March, 2015! I guess I can say I'm officially back to school for one entire year. I hope I have the patience to be a student again, I'm both excited and somewhat "scared". 

Other bits and bobs: I've caught a cold, such a nasty feeling, I'm going to have a guest during weekend, which means we'll be spending the days in Helsinki, eating out and taking photos, I'm going to a concert this Saturday (a Finnish singer + the police orchestra - sounds interesting), we've been taking Pickles to dog training (he's a bit scared of other dogs and barks, barks, baaaarks most of the time there is dog encounters during our walks) and my hair is quickly approaching the bob length, should you be interested in my hair story.

Due to my cold I was not in the mood for working on photos today,  but I did spend some time out in the back yard taking photos of snowdrops, they're such cute flowers, and it was such a beautiful day, +11, bliss! It will snow some in a couple of days, but generally it seems to be very springy. I've turned into a weather forecast maniac, so I'm checking the local website quite often. So, no photos, but a song, it's been on repeat lately.

Have a great weekend!
