There is still one, much more joyful song from Cranberries which is very tacky.


Today at rehearsal the hard waltz goreography -the one which caused head ache for many of us- went much better. I finally got the idea and sometimes I made it really flew! That’s great feeling! Next time we’ll get our courtshow placies to Turku’s National Gymnaestrada (which is next June). I’m so waiting that happening!


Finland nation got good news yesterday. Our president and his wife got a baby-boy! So it’s all well in Kingdom…although it’s already third boy for Sauli cause he have two boys his first marriage (with Marja-Leena who dyed at 1995 at accident). Even it wasn’t a girl this time either… Congratulations of a healthy boy Sauli and Jenni! 😉


Tomorrow (or actually today) I’m back to work. ”M” was at hospital one week but came home for weekend. So now I’m back to normal again (which is fine for me)! It’s quite boring just to be at home and do homeworks which are ”calling you” more when you’re at home…

…Til the next time…


DOLORES MARY EILEEN O’RIORDAN -The Cranberries- (1971-2018)

The Cranberries (known for example of hits Zombie, Ode To My Family, Linger, Animal instinct) have been one of my favourit bands since my high school times. Their songs brings me much memories of those times.

I remember all those growing pains of teenager and so hopeless love woes which teared me sometimes off but I also remember all fun things; partying, having fun with friends and all those things in school we did have like our senior students dances and abiturient (candidate for the matriculation examination) driving with truck, which we call ”penkkarit”. It’s like time trip to yesterday when I hear that great voice of Dolores.

Cranberries had their own, very unique style! Their rhythm and melodies are amazing (and ofcourse they have good lyrics also.)


Now when Dolores is gone (only at age 46), one period is ended again. She’s singing only in heaven now! I hope angels are with you, Dolores!


New president of Finland have been chosen. Sauli Niinistö will continue to second period. He took (as a surprise for me) very overwhelming win (62,7% of votes) and even though I didn’t vote him I can understand his popularity. He’s quite neutral 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. 😉

Good luck Sauli! Make Finland proud!


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).

Anyway, do enjoy these videos!


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…

Have a good week!



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…


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!

(These are funny finnish coffee commercial with a little information of finnish coffee culture. (english subtitles)).




”If you got an idea, let it out”…What a great advise at metro station!


This teddy is so cute! I found it at ”Prisma”-shop.
