Hi everyone!

All the boxes are unpacked, all the furniture in place (including my beloved Torbjørn IKEA chair), so it’s time to get back to work.

I’ve moved across town to a smaller apartment. I now live in a concrete box with a small veranda. It’s not as bad as it sounds. For someone who’s lived in an old building with paper walls, concrete is quite refreshing. And for someone without an interior decorating gene, moving from an apartment with banana shaped floors and no 90 degree angles into a box-shape is heavenly. And going from no veranda to even a small one, well, you can fill in the blank. We just have to hang pictures on the walls and buy stuff to fill this place with, and everything will be dandy.

Plus, we now live in the hip part of town. All I have to do is step outside and I’m in a wonderland of little cafes, corner shops and fancy dressed Quebecois. (Nobody mention the fact that I live my life almost exclusively in yoga pants. I’m making a fashion statement, I swear!)

All in all, this should kick-start my writing, right? Right. I’ll keep you posted!



  1. Sounds awesome hun!! Both Thumbs Up!

  2. Apart from the “concrete box” bit, this all sounds delightful! I hope this does indeed do wonders for kick-starting your writing.

    • I actually like the concrete part because it means I don’t hear my neighbors. At all. If I don’t open the windows I’m inside a silent cocoon. It’s a godsend when compared to living right beneath a crazy lady who had loud arguments daily.

  3. I’m actually a little jealous. It sounds so cool to have such a nice “happening” area right there. 😀 congrats!

    • Yeah. It’s pretty nice. Unfortunately, it means that if we open the windows at night, there’s some noise. Still better than crazy neighbors rearranging furniture at 4AM though, which was our last place.

      Whereabouts do you live?
