Blondie is back in the city!
I can tell you that my planned two weeks there (that turned out to be almost six weeks in the end), were the best ever. Being pregnant in that environment, with M's mother lovely food, everyone's company, the routines and the mind-blowing nature around - I could hardly have asked for more. I am beyond grateful that this place is in the family and that I've met a man with such a lovely bunch of people in it! We've had visitors from Sweden, Colombia and Miami: it's so much fun and so lovely to gather everyone in this amazing place. But it's always nice with changes and this time we're only staying here until Thursday and after that, off again for a very long stay at another destination on this planet.
I'm also very thankful for my thoughtful man, who was never once angry at me when I again decided to stay "another week". And I'm so happy to see what this outside environment, long period has done to our little son. He speaks so much more, in all of his three languages (words) and walks up and down stairs without a problem or any help, jumps from the side of the pool into our arms without fear and he's such a happy and well behaved little kid, I couldn't ask for more. If little L is half as adorable and cute inside and out, I'll be a mother beyond happy. Thank you life for all of this!
But I'm back in the city life now, adapting as a chameleon and the blogging has been so so since this hospital visit for some reason; I guess it took a lot of energy to heal. I'm very tired counting the final days of this pregnancy and the heat is not exactly helping. There's so many things going on and at the same time my brain is slower than ever. As soon as I do something, I get tired and need to rest and my memory is like jelly in my head. I have to write everything down not to forget.
Being back in Zürich means some nice things too though, like shopping and so on. I've been wearing something like six pieces of clothing these weeks and I actually enjoy finding my favourite stores here again before leaving it all again for a long time.
And these awesome shades waiting for me at home here were also a joy to find from the best designer ever, Karen Walker of course, who is making these original and retro sunglasses, all with a little something extra. I got them at the same time as the beautiful Kimono and you can find them on the same page if you are interested.
Tonight, I'll dress up in a pair of new Stella McCartney heels I bought today and meet some nice girls for dinner that I haven't seen in a long time. Hopefully I'll have time to take an outfit picture of what I'm wearing tonight.
Well, that's the quite confusing update so far from this very slow thinking mother to be.
