A good week

Dette er ei bra uke. Jeg kjenner det i kroppen, gleden kribler. Det er en sånn uke hvor sola skinner og jeg får gjort det jeg har skrevet på gjørelista. Det har vært nok av dårlige uker i det siste, fylt med triste, kjipe dager. Nå er det på tide med en bra en. Jeg startet mandag på den best tenkelige måten; jeg jobbet effektivt med skolearbeid, dro på treningssenteret for første gang på en måned, og tok en solfylt pause i parken med Kotryna.

Sola steiker i London, og det er skummelt varmt for februar. Jeg gliste fra øre til øre da jeg gikk til Universitetet i går i kun jeans og en t-skjorte, men en liten bekymret stemme i bakhode hvisket “klimaendringene ødelegger jordkloden”. Likevel prøver jeg å nyte sola, for den letter sånn på humøret mitt. Jeg har vært mye nedfor og bekymret de siste månedene, og dager som disse gjør meg glad.

//This is a good week. I can feel it in my body, the joy is bubbling. This is the type of week where the sun is shining and I tick of everything I’ve put on my to-do.list. I’ve had enough of bad weeks lately, filled with sad and crap days. Now it’s about time I have a good one. I started Monday in the best possible way; I worked effectively on coursework, went to the gym for the first time in a month, and took a sunny break in the park with Kotryna.

The sun is glaring in London and it’s scarily hot for February. I was smiling from ear to ear as I was walking to University yesterday in just jeans and a t-shirt, but a worried voice whispered: “climate change is destroying the earth” in the back of my head. I’m still going to enjoy it though because it really helps to lighten my mood. I’ve been sad and worried a lot lately, but days like these make me feel better.

Jeg started dagen tidlig i dag med favorittfrokosten min, bagel med avokado og røkt laks og en kopp kaffe. Egentlig skulle jeg bli hjemme og jobbe videre med skolearbeid, men jeg følte at nå når været er så fint måtte jeg bare komme meg ut. Derfor sitter jeg nå på Gail’s i Camden, syv pund fattigere men en ismocca og en bananmuffins rikere. Sånn kan det gå, og godt er det.

Jeg er i et deilig godt humør, og jeg skal virkelig prøve å holde det sånn. Nå skal jeg tvinge meg selv til å gjøre litt arbeid, for jeg vet at jeg vil føles bra etterpå, også skal jeg heller slappe av i kveld med et langt bad og en god bok.  

//I started off the day early today with my favourite breakfast, bagel with avocado and smoked salmon and a cup of coffee.  I was supposed to stay in and continue working on my coursework, but the weather is so amazing I just had to get out of the house. So right now I’m sat in Gail’s in Camden, seven quid poorer but an iced mocha and banana muffin richer. That’s what happens when it comes to me, and I’m not mad about it.

I’m in a deliciously good mood, and I’m really trying to keep it this way. Now I’m going to force myself to do some work, because I know it’s going to feel good afterward, and then I’m going to relax tonight with a long bath and a good book.

  1. Even on the crappiest days, sunlight makes everything seem more manageable and positive! On rare beautifully warm winter days, I like to spend as much time out as I can as well 🙂 The last time there was a beautiful winter day in my city, I went out for a cuppa coffee and popped by two used book stores that I hadn’t ever visited before ^-^ So glad to hear you’re doing well lately, & wishing you more wonderful days ahead! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
