It’s been so long since I took part in a Friendly Friday post that I feel quite rusty. This week’s topic is fun and oh so current, so I can’t resist taking part.
Many people seem to be craving moments in nature or walks on the beach. I’m lucky to be in Finland where we have been able to walk outside all this time. For me, this means daily walks either in the forest near my house or along the shoreline. I have discovered that I can find my way in the forest and can even take the small paths and navigate around. Oh, except once, when I took the kids (who are all grown btw) and somehow ended up making a full turn and walking right back the way we came. It certainly wasn’t the intention and you can imagine what fun the kids had at their mom’s disorientation! 😛
But. What do I crave? Perhaps it’s not a craving as such but I really miss meeting my friends and colleagues. My job is ending in two weeks, so I definitely miss our breakfasts and afternoon coffees together. I won’t even see my colleagues when I leave as everyone is working from their homes. Instead, I will go to the empty office and drop off my computer and keys. What a way for a job to end, quite sad really!
I miss going places. Museums, movies, restaurants, cafés. I don’t crave a certain food or dish as we can get almost everything as take-out. Instead I miss lingering in cafés and restaurants. I miss making plans to go to all of these. I haven’t done any of the virtual museum tours there are available, it just doesn’t feel the same. Here’s hoping our book club will be able to meet live in June at Goose Pastabar!
There is one thing I was a bit surprised to miss. I didn’t realize that we have got together almost every month for the past year. Can you guess? TALLINN. Yes, I really, really miss Tallinn and everything it has to offer. I cannot wait for my first trip back. During this time new cafés and restaurants have opened so I’m super excited to test those out. I will seek out the new MEM café first thing.
