I apologize for the lack of posts at the moment, but i am just enjoying the time spent with my family and havent had time to write anything today either. But i am hoping that you are all busy and dont have time to be online and read my blog anyway :)
Today has been a really nice day where the time has passed so incredibly quickly, almost strange that its almost 9pm now when it feels like it was just an hour or two ago that i got out of bed!
Anyway, the day started with a walk and a podcast - my favourite way to start the day - before i began doing some school work and then my mum came and said she had an easter egg for me. Here in Sweden its not chocolate easter eggs which are often given in England and Ireland, but instead the egg forms where there are often chocolate or gifts inside. My mum, how sweet she is, had gone to the trouble of buying vegan and cruelty free make up for me as well as vegan organge chocolate (which was my breakfast, haha). I hadnt expected it at all, but also that she had taken into consideration that i do want my make up and hair products to be CF and vegan, it means so much to me when my family care about that and take it into consideration!!
After that i got ready and headed into town to go to my favourite lunch place with my sister. To celebrate that i have gotten a job i decided to go *all out* and order everything i wanted as well as pay for my sister as a treat!! I ordered a buddha bowl with marnated tofu, sweet potatoe fries (we shared!), a raw food cake and a rainbow latte and my sister got a pitaya bowl and a matcha latte!! It was so so good, infact so filling that i had to take the cake with me and eat in the car later.
If you are ever in Stockholm i definitely recommend going to Mahalo (hälsocafet), its one of my favourite places and one of the things i miss about Stockholm!!
After that my sister and I got picked up by our parents and we drove out to a forest where we went for a short walk before sitting in the sun for a while, and then we packed our things together and went food shopping for tomorrows Easter lunch. I didnt know what i was going to make as they will be eating egg and salmon etc, but i decided to just go for normal food and not try to make vegan salmon or egg substitutes etc I dont really care about easter food and feel no need to make exact substitues, i just want to be able to eat something and it doesnt have to be a vegan copy, haha.
Then when we got home it was straight to making food where i made rice paper rolls and salad, and my step dad made bread, my mum made the dips and my sister made an egg tortilla/fritatta type thing! All in all a very successful and delicious dinner, and now i am finally able to lie down in my bed again after a full day of "on the go".
I must admit, its nice to get out of routines and habits. Its nice to be able to cuddle my dog, spend time with my sister and my family. To not eat alone and just feel the presence of my family, but i do love my life in Gothenburg, so i see my time here as a little break from routines and a little holiday but i also know that i like my normal which is a great feeling. To enjoy this holiday but also enjoy my normal life!!
Anyway, a long post but i hope you have all had a lovely Saturday and can enjoy the food and chocolate if you recieve some. Dont worry about food, life is so much more than that, instead enjoy being with family and friends if that is the case. And if you are on your own, enjoy that as well... make the best of the day whatever you may be doing and remember chocolate wont harm you, but your eating disorder will!!
**Also i have gotten asked before why i dont post so many selfies or recent pictures, thats because when i live on my own i really dont take many pictures of myself, instead its just random snapchat selfies. But its times like now where i post more photos as more photos are taken and there is more to share, haha!
