And we're off!

... quite soon anyway.

Having grown up on the coast of Finland, I'm a child of water and woods, and so is my friend. Together we decided to ditch London for a long weekend and find a nice spot for a DIY writing retreat. We're leaving for Suffolk tomorrow. There might not be loads of trees (?) but we'll be right by the sea and we're counting on lots of fresh air!
A tiny bit of the Gulf of Bothnia seen from the Finnish West coast.
 I really look forward to getting stuck into some editing. Sometimes a change in scenery can be great for the creative juices. I'm also looking forward to walks on the beach, sitting in the garden with a book and a cup of tea (when it's not raining) and late night chats with my friend.
Trees are GREAT! Until they fall on top of your summer cottage ...
The little cabin we're staying in doesn't have wifi so I probably won't be blogging. I might do a bit of Instagraming though so if you're interested you can find me on madicken_m. I'll probably link the photos to Twitter as well, if that's your social media of choice.
By the time summer reaches Finland and you muster up the courage to have a swim, you're so pale you're practically see through ...
Right, enough self-promotion! I hope you have a lovely weekend and I'll see you when I get back from the coast!

Cheers!
