You could say that these past few weeks have basically gone by in a fog! Work is really full on and with the move coming up, there’s just too much on my plate right now.
However, last Friday was great – aqua jogging in the morning, followed by a gorgeous breakfast in a café (SIS. Deli & Café) and later lunch with a girlfriend. Some work in between too, LOL!
I met my wonderful friend Laura at Gran Delicato – look at this gorgeous aubergine dish below, healthy and so good. The owner has a twinkle in his eyes and the atmosphere is very relaxed. I suggest you try their coffee too, you won’t be dissapointed!
Are you looking for a brunch recommendation in Helsinki? I have one for you – Southpark. And no, it has nothing to do with the tv program. The thing I like about this restaurant is the sunlight from the huge windows and the fact that the price is still quite affordable compared to many other brunches in Helsinki. Also – pancakes, jam and whipped cream! We had a great family brunch there on Sunday.
We had a “slight” setback with our new washing machine. On Thursday the service guy came to deliver it to our new house and came to the conclusion that it does not fit into the space it’s supposed to. The space is a standard size but there’s a piece between the washing machine and dryer which doesn’t fit causing the whole project to come to a standstill. Now either we need to find a new piece or take the whole cupboard apart from around where the machine is supposed to go. Aargh, not good news.
The weather has been gorgeous – so sunny and the air still quite warm – I wish all Septembers were like this. Next week I’m going to Jyväskylä for work – it will be interesting to see a city full of Alvar Aalto buildings. Maybe I’ll get back on track with taking photos – really these three were all that I took this week!
I hope you have had a more relaxed week than me – let me know in the comments below!
