It feels quite arrogant and obnoxious writing this – but I have a pretty amazing life. Previously, I struggled with splitting my life between city and countryside, but since quitting my job in September, I couldn’t be happier.
As part of my ‘body and health experimentation’, I decided to try a 24 hour fast for the first time. We were in Fröhden and Mateusz, Artur and Tad all decided to take part in it as well.
I decided to give up alcohol and coffee for a week to see how my body would react. Some friends asked me why I didn’t choose to give up alcohol one week and coffee the week after, but I wanted to challenge myself and do both at the same time.
It’s been a few years since I regularly wore makeup. I now enjoy doing my grocery shopping and wandering the streets in tracksuit pants. I did however go to a bar once in my tracky dacks and joggers and that made me feel a bit weird and self conscious. I probably won’t do it again […]

Artur’s parents visited for two weeks and brought us a car load of […]
Last week the chicken man visited Fröhden and we got six new chickens! Who is this chicken man? He is basically a man that drives around Brandenburg and Sachsen in a red van full of chickens. He comes once a month and you call him up the day before to make your chicken order.
So it happened to me too. I made it to my 30s. I didn’t really celebrate my birthday. I wanted a low key day, so I went to a farm with Artur. As I get older, I enjoy being the centre of attention less and less.
I am not a foodie. I don’t need to try the newest restaurants. I am not one of those people that are ‘into brunch’. I don’t really like going out for breakfast, because most of the time I feel like I could have a better meal at home. Now that we have our own home […]
