Hello, and welcome to my new blog! I’m very excited to be here in this fresh, new space which is my little corner of the web, and I hope you are too! Right now is actually a new start all round for me, and I will tell you why.

A New Room

This blog was created in my new bedroom, which I have just today moved into after decorating it for the last two weeks, painting, putting up new wallpaper, moving new furniture in and lastly moving all my belongings into it. Before we moved a few weeks ago, I really gave all my belongings some thorough thought, and I went through every single thing I owned, deciding whether it was worth keeping or not, and it feels so good because now everything I own is something that is either very useful to me, or else dearly beloved, and how wonderful is that? So I’m really enjoying my space now, and the things that fill it.

My new wallpaper. It’s subtle, but I love it!
This is how few possessions I now have.

A New Job

Tomorrow morning will also be a new start, because I am starting my new job! I’ll be working as a school librarian, bringing books to children, and I can hardly think of a better way to give something back to the world of literature. Books were so incredibly important to me when I was younger, and I’d love to think that I could be a part of that great reading experience for other children. Tomorrow is also important because it marks the end of my sick leave, which I have been on for almost a year, and that is such a milestone for me. I really hope it goes well.

In love with my new (but really old and vintage) teak shelving unit.

A New Blog

And, as I’ve already mentioned, this is my new blog! Yey! I’d been thinking about moving from wordpress.com to wordpress.org for quite a while, and also about the idea of no longer blogging anonymously – and finally, here I am. I love my new theme, which is called CheerUp and which I bought from envatomarket, I love how bright and airy and elegant is looks, and I think it will come together really nicely once I fill it up with a few new posts. ‘Coming out’ as A Scandi Called Sofie also feels really good. It was always a little strange writing under a pseudonym, and while I did really enjoy the privacy that Hannah Greene gave me, I think it’s time to move on from that ‘undercover’ world of blogging.

My minimalist working space.

Lastly, although it won’t be for a few weeks, I have another little new start arriving in the post in a few days – I’m getting glasses! I think they look really good, and I’m loving how I’m fitting right into the stereotype of a librarian, haha.

Anyway, that is all for now, lots of love,

Sofie xx

My new fairy lights, how adorable are they?
