Less Is More

I'm not sure how to take this, but it seems that the less I write, the more visitors my blog gets...

The downside of people finding a blog is that you get a lot of junk comments. Therefore, I have had to add the word recognition thing to the commenting part of my blog. I'm sorry for that, as I really love your comments and I'm not happy to make commenting more inconvenient for you.

I'm feeling guilty for not posting here often enough, but I must say that I have really enjoyed my free time. Now that Fräulein is spending about six hours a day in the Krippe (more about that later), I have been able to start the studies, which I had planned for this autumn. That means a lot of reading and listening to the lectures over the web.
Big, heavy books, but I just love them!
Even though the six hours of me-time passes very quickly, I just love to get my thoughts into something completely different. And (I say this although I know you might start to think I'm such a dull person) I just love studying and preparing myself to a test. The first test will be next week and I just can't wait for the feeling which you get after spending four hours writing down everything you have learnt in the last couple of weeks.
Yesterday, I was sitting at Starbucks reading this:
"When you think of being spaces, Starbucks will probably come to your mid.
The coffee chain's stated goal is to become our 'third place',
where we spend the bulk of our time in addition to our home and work."

So try to bear with me - I'm just enjoying the possibility to step out of the Hausfrau mode for a couple of hours each day! :)

Blogini on saanut viime aikoina paljon uusia vierailijoita. Valitettavasti tästä on seurannut, että olen alkanut saada valtavasti roskakommentteja, joiden takia jouduin ottamaan käyttöön kommentoinnin sanatunnistuksen. Pahoitteluni siitä!

Nyt kun Fräulein viettää enemmän aikaa päiväkodissa, olen saanut aloitettua etäopintoni. Ihanaa saada ajatukset johonkin ihan muualle muutamaksi tunniksi päivässä!

No worries, as soon as the baby comes, you'll be needing your readers again:)
Looking forward to more stories then and enjoy this short few weeks of freedom left.

sounds like you are doing a distance studying course as well! (I have started two this year) What subject do you study?

Thanks for leaving your comments despite the inconvenience! :)

I'm just starting to realize that this 'freedom' will not last for long and in a few weeks time there will be someone requiring my full attention for 24/7. Although my studies will continue during the spring, I guess I'll be needing my blog more, too...

I've been taking some distance studying courses in marketing from a Finnish university. One of the great advantages of Internet!
