Wellcome to get to know Finland and Finnishness, as well as the world of 80's and 90's childhood memories, dreams, dance, gymnastics, baking and other interesting topics. Jump along the dance girl's journey!
New president of Finland have been chosen. Sauli Niinistö will continue to second period. He took (as a surprise for me) veryoverwhelming win (62,7% of votes) and even though I didn’t vote him I can understand his popularity. He’s quiteneutral person who have took care of our interrelationships with Russia (even some people say he will lead us to NATO but I don’t think so, atleast not so far as it’s not necessary and I don’t think it will be).
Sauli seems to be person who doesn’t wake any hateness and he’s quite easy choise!
I hope he can do his work well even soon he will be dad. 😉
Have you herd of hiplet? I haven’t before yesterday when I found these videos. It’s mixed hip hop and ballet. I think it’s very beautiful and elegant dance style and it’s more playful than classical ballet.
It would be nice to learn hiplet (but then I should learn also better pointe shoe technique). I was a child when I last did use a pointes and I don’t know how it would work now (in this age).
It’s exactly one year ago when the lady who’s care taker (or personal assistant) I was for 10 years did past away. This year have went really fast and it have included many different periods (atleast in terms of work).
After occasionally task-job working and quite desperate job searching, I finally got to this. I have this quite nice assistant job (this really is more assistant job than care taker job).
I’m mainly cooking, making coffee, doing grocery store shoppings and ofcourse keeping kitchen clean but also sometimes doing other housework (when needed).
Also I wash her (=M) hair once a week and it’s quite relaxing (yes, even for me). Sure these first weeks we have also got to know each other better and I have the feeling we have much common which is making this job even more easy.
So everything is good now but sure I still sometimes mis ”A”. We had so long history…and I mis her dog…and little bit her relatives too. Some of them kept me already as a member of family…
Well, anyway. Let’s go with new winds or how is it said in english…
I don’t remember when my thigh muscles were as achy as now. Every time when I sit down or stand up for example on the couch I feel pain in my muscles…or when I climb up stairs. I feel like old lady and probably look like that too (when I sit down or stand up). Every time I use my thigh muscles I feel pain.
That’s all because of our work out at Sunday in flow gymnastic training. It was hard training day. We had for example physical test. My test result was great and I’m happy of that anyway! This is the result when you push yourselves at maximum level!
I didn’t knew that waltz can be so challenging. We had one waltz string which really was that and I got really mad to myself cause I didn’t learn it right away. I always thought that waltz is very easy. I’ve been good at (basic) waltz. For some reason those steps was hard for me to put to waltz rhythm…
A SWEET DREAM
Few nights back I saw a lovely dream where were a retriever (puppy?)like in that gif animation)). It was so cute and I felt so much love and warmness when I pet and kissed it…
You know what they say dog is symbolizing in dream? It’s said it means you’ll find a new friend.
When I was young, I once saw a same kind of dream than now (where was a dog) and while after that I got a good friend, who’s been one of my best friends for years. So maybe it really does mean that!
I have one person in my mind actually. She’s my new employer who’s care taker I am. (She’s the second one of those two). We get along so well and my workdays have been nice!
So I’m very happy I got this job. In this area of work there is so much difference and so I know I’m very lucky to got this kind of place!
The only thing which really is hard is waking up at the morning. I got used to stay up really late and now it’s hard to get up. Luckily we have coffee! (Though I’m drinking it too much again like always when I’m regularly working). We have now also bright light bulb which is helping! ”LUCKILY WE HAVE COFFEE!” (These are funny finnish coffee commercial with a little information of finnish coffee culture. (english subtitles)).
That video includes ”party hum” from the ”National market” at Helsinki, where were 85 000 participants…I have to say, the show was more for young people, not really for nearly 40 year old woman. It was too much disco style and I didn’t really like that humour either…but fireworks were fine as always!
Yesterday I forgot to thank all of my readers of the year 2017. So now I say: Thank you all my readers!! I got also many new readers last year, so thank you too!! I’m happy you are there with me! Let’s start this new year together!
