My weekend in England

I'm now back in Sweden after an awesome weekend in England. It was wonderful to see James again, and really nice to meet his lovely family!

James' parents live in Bognor Regis, so when we'd met at Gatwick train station, we went to stay there for the weekend.

Apart from meeting his parents and brothers, we walked around and James showed me the town.

I also met a few of his friends (very nice people!) at a pub and had a really nice time.

On Sunday, we went back to London where James lives now during his job training. I've never really been to London, so we walked along the Thames, saw London Bridge and Tower Bridge. We didn't have much time before my flight tho, and since it was Sunday, the tube weren't a very good option. So that's what we had time for, and to see his apartment of course. More to see when I'll go and visit again in November!

Not long until he'll come and visit me! Countdown: 11 days! Woho!

To England, where my heart lies

Oh, by the way. I'm going to England tomorrow for the weekend. Lovely, beautiful England. To visit my boyfriend. My handsome, wonderful boyfriend. It's been 3,5 weeks now since I saw him. Can't wait.

Read and enjoy

Just need to quote Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables) and her author, Lucy M Montgomery this evening.

"I'm afraid to speak or move for fear all this wonderful beauty will just vanish like a broken silence."

"Oh, Marilla, I feel as though someone's handed me the moon and I don't exactly know what to do with it."

"I can't help flying up on the wings of anticipation. It's as glorious as soaring through a sunset. It almost pays for the thud."

"It's seems so wonderful that I'm going to live with you and belong to you. I've never really belonged to anyone before."

"Isn't it a wonderful morning? The world looks like something God imagined just for his own pleasure, doesn't it."

"Dear old world, Anne murmured, "you are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you."

My September walk in pictures

Good times, good memories

Autumn is here! My wishes came true!

So, the other day, me and mum went shopping. Such a nice afternoon, and I came home with lots of nice clothes! A coat (well needed), thicker leggings, sweaters and a nice skirt. Pictures coming soon!

Today, I miss England a lot.
Obviously, England is on my mind every day since my boyfriend is British, but today I miss Exeter in particular. My three wonderful months in Exeter, on the south west coast.

UK. England. I just love you so much.

It's true, You make me strong

You must think I'm strong
To give me what I'm going through

Well, forgive me
Forgive me if I'm wrong
But this looks like more than I can do
On my own

I know I'm not strong enough to be
everything that I'm supposed to be
I give up
I'm not strong enough
Hands of mercy won't you cover me
Lord right now I'm asking you to be
Strong enough
For the both of us

Well, maybe
Maybe that's the point
To reach the point of giving up

Cause when I'm finally
Finally at rock bottom
Well, that's when I start looking up
And reaching out

Cause I'm broken
Down to nothing
But I'm still holding on to the one thing
You are God
and you are strong
When I am weak

I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don't have to be
Strong enough

- Matthew West

A good day

I feel so inspired, challenged and privileged.

I feel needed, encouraged and happy.
I've now worked my first 3,5 weeks at my new job. My new job as a student's assistant and "extra teacher" who helps children with different things in smaller groups. I've now started to get into the routines, the work environment, the rules and the group of teachers at the school, so I can now point out what it's like. And I like it. So far, it's all very good, and I learn a lot!
There might be a chance that I'd like to become a teacher in the future, or something similar to what I'm doing now. I can't say for sure that I want to, but it has undoubtedly crossed my mind!

Fantastic. Beautiful. Wonderful. Touching.
Ever since my dear friend Emmie mentioned it and recommended it on her blog, months ago, I've wanted to see it. Tonight I did, and it made me absolutely speechless. Such a beautiful film. See it!!!

Hello darkness, my old friend

I've got autumn feelings. That means, I don't care it's 25 degrees outside today. I've got autumn feelings, and I want to wear hats and scarfs, boots and thick jumpers. No more swimwear, shorts or vests please!

Rainy days in England when visiting James, with wool cardigans, boots and an umbrella. Staying in, watching a film, lighting candles. Walking in the woods, drinking tea, hugging.

I just love it!
