Beginnings and endings

I love beginnings, love that first couple of days of doing something completely new and not being quite sure of what's to come or what to expect. Sometimes it's hard and you're almost always very nervous, but it's well worth it to know that you're starting a new chapter in your life. A chapter filled with blank pages that only you can fill with exactly what you want. What I don't like though is endings. I hate saying goodbye and would usually prefer to keep everything just as it's always been. I don't like it when what has been now and today for so long suddenly turns into a memory. It's like it might not even have happened, like it's something that you just imagined. So I love beginnings and hate endings. Unfortenately there's always an ending before the beginning, something needs to end before something else can begin. This time it was London's time to end. I closed that chapter and turned it into a memory. An absolutely amazing memory and a chapter in my life that I'll never forget.

Today it's exactly one month since I left London and I can't even count the times when I've wished that I could just clap my hands and be back in London for the day. Still I think I made the right decision to move back home, it's just takes some getting used to and I'm not quite there yet. I don't miss the city that much cause I know it will always be there and everytime I'm visiting I can go to all of my favourite places. Beside I might even move back one day, I'm already planning on having another year living in London and starting of my career once I've taken some sort of education. What I do miss though are all the people. The family have been here on holidays this week and I've made sure to meet them twice. It wasn't until Lukas ran and hugged me and I heard Siri say "Tiiiinka" in her own special way that I realised how much I've missed them. Luckily I know that I'm gonna keep contact with them as well, nothing can stop me from watching those little ones grow up. Now I just have to wait another one and a half month before I'm visiting London, I don't think I can stay away much longer. Any how, since this is a blog for my life in London this will be my last post. Well, except from telling you about my new blog, I haven't started it yet but I'll let you know when I do.

So, one last:

25 things I miss

  • Waking Siri up by tickeling her and hear her wonderful laugh.

  • Discusing why it is that you're upside down in the spoon and other tricky questions with Lukas.
  • Sitting in the front on the upper deck in the buses.
  • Listening to amazing live music at the Bedford.
  • Waking up on a weekend and now that the day will be filled with new experiances and places.

  • Being silly and laughing at everything on a sunday afternoon with Pia, while Alena just shakes her head.

  • Morning coffee with Siri at Costa.
  • Taking a nap in the middle of the day every single weekday.
  • Not being able to decide what to eat at Brick Lane cause all the choices looks so yummy.

  • Buying lunch at M&S and then enjoy it in some park on a sunny day.
  • Having friends and family visit and spend every waking moment showing them London.
  • Walking home from the gym eating roasted nuts and pass by the river with the lights and that special smell.
  • Hear people calling out "two for a tena" while watching all the colours of the flowermarket.
  • Going out in Soho and occasionally sing "Jag kommer" with Michaela, Amelie and Sarah.
  • Meeting new people that within days seems like old friends.
  • Walking along the southbank watching the people and the streetartist while eating food from the market or the van.

  • Taking an one-day-trip to any other place in England and discover a new town.

  • Instantly feel the quiet and calm atmosphere when walking in to a museum like Tate Modern or British Museum.

  • Taking long walks with Amanda in the evening, discussing everything and nothing.
  • The playgroup on Thursdays, drinking coffee and talking to other nannies.
  • The baguettes from Borough Market and the Malaysian Pancakes from Brick Lane.

  • Going to central in the morning and just happen to stay there until the night.

  • Having brunch with Karolin while catching up.

  • To always be in the presence and not feel like I have to figure out the future just right now.
  • Reminding myself that I'm actually in London, or even better, living in London.
