I’ve always loved to write, as far back as I can remember. Over ten years ago I wrote two novels (unpublished), then before I could get around to do anything with them I had a burnout and spent several years learning to cope with the after-effects. I struggle with chronic fatigue and pain, but I’m determined to get back to writing – since it’s something I love so dearly.

Born and raised in Sweden, I moved to the Netherlands in 2000 and lived there for 7 years. After my burn out, I moved back home to find my footing again. It took a long time, and I’ve had a lot of setbacks, but I’m in a decent place now.

In 2015 I packed up my belongings, grabbed my dog and moved to the United Kingdom to the man I’d been dating long-distance for nearly four years. We’ve lived together since, and in March 2018 we welcomed our baby girl, the Imp, to the world.

This blog will follow my daily life as I come to terms with being a mum, try to find time to write and probably a lot of idle thoughts and random ramblings.

  1. Hello. (Again!)
    I noticed you’re a chronic pain sufferer and that’s (sadly) something I can identify with. I’ve lived with migraines since I was a young child and now I’m…well, quite a bit older, they’re a lot worse than they used to be, lasting much longer. So my days are built around medication and varying degrees of what I can do. Anyhoo. That’s something I wish neither of us had to cope with!
    The writing, on the other hand. Yep. 2017 is the year we BOTH get back into it. 🙂

    • I feel for you. I’ve had some close friends with migraine, so I’ve seen some of how debilitating they can be. I think when living with (any type of) chronic pain, it’s a day-to-day thing. Seeing where you’re at for that particular day and doing what you can based on that. If all you did one day was breathe, that’s okay too. It’s a mindset I’m still struggling with though, as it’s very easy to get caught up in the feeling of not doing enough, and only seeing what you’re not managing to do – rather than the little things that you did!
