That dang state!

I love a good challenge. I wouldn’t say I am the competitive type, and I bow down gracefully when someone proves to be better than me at something (which happens a lot), but I just like the feeling of playing along. No matter how bad it can make me look, in the end. My good…… Continue reading That dang state!

Girls talk… – FFFC

Vanessa let herself drop on the comfy sofa, reached for her scotch, and took a long sip. Her bestfriend was standing in the middle of the living room. She was pretending to give the painting a long, appreciative look, but Vanessa knew her better than that. Knocking off her high heels, she rubbed her soar…… Continue reading Girls talk… – FFFC

Thank you!

  Last year, at the beginning of the (first) lockdown, I decided to start a series of online weekend calls, to give people the chance to connect in a different way, here, in the Bloggosphere. To be absolutely honest, I was convinced that it would be a major flop, like many other ideas I had…… Continue reading Thank you!

Savage…

Oh my… I might not give that impression, but I as much as I enjoy other people’s company, I don’t like people coming to my house. I couldn’t really explain why, but my apartment is a cocoon that is meant for Chéri, Freja and I only. I am really grateful that Chéri accepted that from…… Continue reading Savage…

I’m posting my challenge on Instagram (you can find me under the name @thecyranny), and I thought I’d share my week’s pictures…. If you want to know the details about the…… Continue reading Christmas Hygge Challenge…

With friends like this…

I was quite a loner, as a child. Early in life, I had a preference for playing by myself, instead of seeking the company of other kids. I knew how to entertain myself, and reading and writing soon became my favorite hobbies. I was a geeky little girl. I liked spending time at the local…… Continue reading With friends like this…

Out of Africa… (6)

Today was quite special. If you’ve been reading these “Out of Africa” posts, you know that I have lived in Guinea for five years, about thirty years ago. In the small town where I lived (Kamsar), there weren’t a whole lot of us, expat children. We were forced to learn how to get along together.…… Continue reading Out of Africa… (6)

Ung og gammel…

This morning, as I was staring at myself smiling at the mirror (not in a psycho way, I just have my reasons to be happy right now), I noticed some small wrinkles at the outter corners of my eyes… It didn’t wash my smile away, I was just intrigued by their appearance. When had they…… Continue reading Ung og gammel…

(Very) early post…

I might as well have written this one in my sleep… I have been working where I work for almost 7 years, and still haven’t come to an understanding of why it is necessary to be available to retailers at 5 O’clock in the morning. Being available at 5, meaning leaving home at 4h45 (yeah,…… Continue reading (Very) early post…
