This day has been great. We woke up early and started with a great breakfast, oat-meal, fried egg and bacon, toast and orange juice. So nice. We didn't have any disks or glasses by the so we used some plastic tableware and me and Margrét eat our oat-meals from glasses! Obviously we needed to do some shopping so we went to Nitori to do some serious shopping. We bought a lot for the home, mostly for the kitchen and on our way back home we stopped at "You and me". That is a big store, one town over, with food, clothes, everything for the home and best of all a craft department where I saw sewing machines and lots of nice fabrics, I will definitely be going there again. Soon.
How is this all ever gonna fit in this lovely car?
When we got home I started putting everything away and starting on dinner. We had our first real meal here at the house and it looked like this.
Chicken seasoned with lemon and pepper, veggies, tempura and rice.
Tomorrow is another big day, going to the registry office and doing some more shopping :)
Our car is very green. I have no idea if is eco friendly but it is GREEN!
I think the people responsible for getting Siffi the car thought HE GETS LOST EASILY WE SHOULD GET HIM A CAR THAT IS EASY TO SPOT or THIS WAY EVERYBODY NOTICES HIM AND CAN GET EASILY OUT OF THE WAY!
Anyway, it is a nice little car and we love it.
In other news, the greatest disappointment is that we do not have remote controlled toilet, but since I can use one of those anywhere else I decided it is okay.
Yesterday we went to the neighboring town of Miyoshi to do some shopping. Today is some of the same. Last night we got sushi at Miyoshi, great place with a sushi train, best sushi ever, 2500YEN for the whole family, so nice!
Anyway, we are okay and a live, our baggage has not arrived yet but hopefully tonight.
I have to figure out how to change the keyboard to this computer to Icelandic before my next post since this took me 20 min and I have not told you anything important yet!
This is our last day in Iceland, tomorrow morning we will finally fly to Japan an meet Siffi again. It is so strange to think about all of this, my brain is not understanding this yet. We are moving to Japan! What, that can't be right!! But I am so excited and we are so looking forward to this adventure. Siffi has sent us some pictures of the apartment and the neighbourhood and I can't wait to get there. It is such a fresh start for us. Today my mother will come from the north to visit us for a few hours to say good-bye, we are very excited about seeing her and be able to say good-bye in person.
Next post will be written in Japan so until next, wish me luck.
It is strange to think about this being my last day at work, kind of sad. But I got flowers and a gift-card as a farewell present from my co-workers, that was a nice suggestion. I will miss my co-workers a lot and all so fuss ball.
BUT to cheer me up Siffi told me he as already bought 2 iPhone 6 for us, that will be a great update from my current phone
In 4 days I am moving to Japan!
My boyfriend Siffi moved there three weeks ago and in four days me and our daughter are following him there. The last few days have been all about packing and saying good-byes. My last day at work will be tomorrow morning and that will be my last day at work for some time. In Japan I plan to be a stay-at-home mother and enjoy spending time with my daughter, Margret.
It is not easy to pack up your life to move across the world with a two-year old in tow. She is not a fan of these changes and does not like the suitcases that are piling up in our room. I say our room because right now we are living with my in-laws in one room and have some stuff all over the house. Every time I think I have demolished every pile of "stuff" around the house I find some more. The never ending task.
But soon packing will be over, the good-byes will be said and we will be heading for Japan.
All my adult life I have had weight issues. It has been up and down, up and down. For some periods of time I have been in a good place, both physically and mentally, in my goal weight and felt good about it. Mostly I have been overweight and not happy about it, not been able to just get up and do something about it.
In 4 days I am moving to Japan to become a housewife. I see this as my opportunity to make some changes for good. I will log all my meals on myfitnesspal to keep track of all calories eaten and I have yet to decide which app to use to track all calories burned, any suggestions (please leave suggestions in a comment below if you would like to recommend an app for tracking fitness activities).
Today I am 25 kg away from my goal weight. I think it would be good to give myself a year to get rid of the extra weight. The reason I want to loose this weight is not just to look better but also to feel better, to be more fit and last but not least to be more flexible, right now I can not reach my toes and I would like to change that. So here we go again ..
