I am so sad and upset about what happened in Manchester a few days ago.
It is the opposite of how I am trying to live my life.

Terror must never win.

I try to smile, I smile when I pass people in the street.
I listen when others talk, I might not agree with their views, but I listen and accept that we are different.
I can still be your neighbour, your friend.
-, Even if we do not share the same views, nationality, ethnicity, family, language or religion
We can still be sisters and brothers- Best friends.
IF we accept that we are all different, and do not choose to force our life on anyone else.
Freedom of choice.

I try to be kind and helpful. If we all try to be kind to each other, and help the ones that need helping.
We would be alot closer to having Peace.
Peace with ourselves
Peace in the world.

Be kind, Be respecful.

Good morning

Good morning Friends,

How are you all? I hope you have all had a great Easter holiday. We spent a week of the Easter holiday in Spain visiting friends that live there.

My friend's son was going to have his church confirmation in The Norwegian Sailors church known and "Sjømannskirken".

It was a beautiful confirmation with 15 young boys and girls declaring their love for God, I suppose.

We also drove to Barcelona and spent two night there in a room we rented through Airbnb, it was fine, we only slept there so I can't really say too much about the room..other than the beds were really nice to sleep in..and Tatyana and Christiano, the couple that lived there seemed nice. 

The day we were supposed to leave Barcelona, and drive back to Torrevieja, we had Hamburger and chips for brunch, and I even ate the bun. I was starving. But that was a really bad idea.

I got so ill, I couldn't sit or stand, I sank down on the floor just making sounds due to severe abdomen pains, just like gallbladder pains..exact the same place. 

So, it's safe to say that I will neve go back to eating bread, or even high carb ever again. 
It has been tough to get back on track , even when we came home, because the Princess just turned 13, and she has been celebrated by us, but  her partyfor her friends  is coming up...with pizza, cake, ice cream and sweets. I will have to stear clear of most of this though, for sure. 

Wish me luck!! 

Other than this..My mother in law looked after my pea plants when we were away, and they have been planted out maybe almost a week ago. Even if it is still really cold out there..unuaually cold by the way...they seem to survive. Hoping they will manage this next week of bitter cold nights!!

Hey, I also have good news on the tomato front...THREE of my plants have small buds which will hopefully very shortly turn into tomatoes!! yay!! 

After the summer holiday, I will order some cherry tomato plants, to keep us going with tomtoes through the winter. I am so excited about this! No kidding. 

Then my knitting....

The last sleeve is growing...little by little. IF this does not fit him..he's had it. I am not knitting a third version. Then it will be turned into a dress for myself. LOL. I do hope it will fit though. It was just a little too tight last time, and he also wanted it longer in the body..I have knitted another 10 cm I think. So it should be good. 

Other projects...searching for a job and decluttering my house.  Going better than ever!! YAY for that. The goal for 2017 was to get rid of 2017 things, and I am over halfway. It is more difficult now, because I have alot less rubbish to actually throw away. I am sure I'll get there in the end though.

Hope you are all fine, and i hope to see you all soon!

Tomatoes are growing

Not the easiest task, to take photos with a laptop...but atleast you can see that there's something growing there...!

Good morning everyone,

I have joined Camp Nanowrimo for the very first time. I did my very first NaNoWriMo in November last year, and I managed to write about 25.000 words. That means I only wrote half of what I actually wanted to do.

Never fear, I haven't finished with that novel just yet.

Camp nanowrimo starts in April, and I am going to have a new synopsis ready for then, so my plan is to work on that this month.

I have a good idea about what to do next...actually a couple of good ideas to be honest. but one at a time.

If any of you have a good idea about a theme, or even a sentence, make a comment to this post.

Take care of yourselves people,
Love Linn

Good morning

I hope you are all doing well this Wednesday morning.
I am shortly going on the treadmill to get started on my c2k5 again. I'll be starting week one, even if i am much further along in reality. 
I just wanted to show off the tomato seeds I put in the earth a little while ago.  They are really coming along and some of them are even getting their true leaves. 

This is really my very first time growing tomato plants and I am very excited about this. I have repotted some of the plants, because there were too many plants in each cell..I guess I didn't actually expect them all to come up.

I even planted some pepper seeds, I actually took them directly from the pepper and planted them. They are actually coming up too! 

Yes, very exciting. It's not warm enough for anything to go outside, maybe in another month or so. 

It's definitely still frosty over night, so not taking any risks. 

I have also decided to grow some herbs, so might get started with that this month. Not sure which herbs to try, maybe basil ? Anyone has any tips for me! If so, please comment .

Take care, and pop by again soon. 

Love, Linn

I have started

I planted my first tomato seeds 4 days ago, and today I saw the first couple of sprouts already. That was so fast. Hopefully I'll have many more plants coming up and hopefully I will be able to grow tomatoes for the first time in my life. 

I am trying to lead a cleaner life, and try to ..I don't better, I guess. 

It's sad that I am only now trying these things, I wish I did this years ago...nevermind: I will for sure teach my daughter how to grow things, but not until i figure it out myself!

 In this box, that's where the seeds are hiding! I'll show you another picture in a few days, when there's more green to see. 

Well, it's pretty late at night, and time to end today.

Hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow!

Good evening everyone!
It's has been a busy week for me, I have joined a challenge..the challenge is to get rid of 2017 things in 2017.
I am well on my way, I don't know how I have managed to actually get rid of nearly 600 tings in just one week. It's basically everything from paper clutter to pens that don't work any more.

Even the white IKEA dresser is going, hopefully tomorrow. I can't wait to get it out of the house.
I am not sure how I have managed to aggravate my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome once again...first I thought it was because I have been playing too much...but now I wonder if it might be the whisking I did when I made mayonnaise.  I don't really know.

What I do know is that I have purchased a wrist support, super cheap one..but I think it helps a little. I am not a big fan of this particular one, because my hand sweats a lot with it on.

And I had joined InCoWriMo , but I have had to be super careful with my so far I have only managed to write one letter, the letter is to Jennifer in Massachusetts. Might post it tomorrow, if I have the money to do so.

Oh...should I mention my kid...should I...well maybe or not? All I know is that I am really annoyed with my mother in law today. My daughter had an accident with her foot, and had a fair amount of skin scraped off. This was well over a week ago and the wound had gotten a nice scab on it and it was healing nicely. Today the mother in law made my daughter soak the wound so the scab got soft, and then she (the mother in law) managed to dry the scap so roughly so the scab was completely gone.!!
now it's all weeping and bleeding again. Oh my goodness...what was the deal with that please tell me someone!!!
I am hoping it will heal quickly, but I am sure she'll have to miss swimming next week as well!!
Rant over!

Better get ready for bed, it's nearly 23.00 o'clock.
Talk later <3 p="">

questions: what to do

The questions are: What am I passionate about, and what can i do with it? 

My passions:
I enjoy knitting, 
I enjoy decluttering (yes, I really do)
I enjoy reading and writing
I enjoy helping others
I enjoy eating proper foods

What can I do with this?

Make patterns
Knit stuff
Make lists of decluttering
Write my book
Blog more about
  • decluttering
  • minimalism or simple living
  • lchf
This will probably be the future :D

I hope you will come and see me sometime. 

Hugs and kisses, LinnM.

Another day

Another day has started, I have spent my time watching declutter videos on YouTube, to get inspired, and it has worked. I have spent the last week decluttering, and it feels good.

My house is far from empty, and I don't want it to be empty either, just a little less stuff around. I have also started up with my own project Pan, Natasha V has explained it perfectly.

When I was an Avon representative, I ended up buying so much make up and so many nailpolishes, and I still have way too many. So I will focus on using up. I don't buy much makeup anyway..guess that is because I have so much, lol.

Anyway, base and top coat for my nailpolishes, and primer and mascara for my eyes is pretty much the only things I buy, because I only have one of each.

So, before I start doing any more decluttering and tidying up, I am going to finish my coffee. Have a lovely day.

Good Afternoon!

I hope you have all had a wonderful start of the new year.
We haven't done much, apart from booking a holiday in Spain. Which is a pretty big deal.

I am currently looking into learning some Spanish before we go..but it seems I really have to go through the course a few times before my braid (that's a typo, should really say brain..but I think I 'll just stick with braid) remembers it.

Actually, I am doing on online course by BBC, and I think it might be ok for what I need.

Other than that, I have started running again, twice I have been running, and yesterday I ended up having a pretty sore back afterwards. BUT, I am not giving up on my dream of a 5K in about 30 minutes. It is possible!!

Today I have also done my Self assessment regarding taxes...and oh My was tough to find all the correct papers. No doubt I need to really tackle all old paper clutter. I have always though my husband has loads..but I have it too...I have just put it neatly away.Without any systems whatsoever!

That's going to be my big project of the week...!

And purging and decluttering, that is my constant goal. To end up with less!

I will leave you here, with my wishes of having a great day where ever you are.

Hugs, LinnM.

New year start

Hello everyone,
We are starting the new year with a Harry Potter movie marathon. I love Harry Potter, and I will probably never stop loving both the films and the books. 

Still, sad to know that Severus Snape, aka Alan Rickman left us for real in 2016. 
Rip Alan Rickman, loved, and deeply missed.
