The True Sea

Slow Living, Inner Peace and Self Love

Lately, according to my phone


I’m so sorry about the long radio silence, my dears. I’m going through a really rough time in my life right now and blogging hasn’t been a priority. Something overwhelmingly distressing that I wasn’t prepared for in any way occurred, so I went to Sweden for 9 days as I desperately needed to be with my old friends and my family for a while. I had a lovely time recuperating in Sweden (aka Winter Wonderland) and since I came back home to London I have been continuing to feel better by the minute. I now feel ready to take on the world!

There aren’t even words for how much I have missed the snow over the last few years.
This cute polar bear brooch handmade by my dear friend Viktorija got to experience snow. My grandma treated me to the Swedish tradition of seven types of cake & biscuits.
My feisty cat Nia who has been living with my mum ever since I moved from Sweden. There was a snowstorm on the day I arrived and I couldn’t have been happier.
Toy shop selfie because I let a hairdresser chop my hair off on an impulse. My best friend’s cat Boris who is the fluffiest kittypuss I know.
I made good progress on my granny stripe blanket and read The Collector by John Fowles.Gorgeous handspun yarns with glitter and silk flowers.
Christmas lights in the town that my dad and my stepmum live in.

  1. Hope your feeling better Hun! It’s never good when your life turns upside down! But you’ll get there in time! :) I’m thinking off you x

    • Thank you so much, my dear! It’s such a shock having your life turned upside down all of a sudden. :( I’m taking it one day at a time. I’m feeling SO much better than I did three weeks ago! xx

      • Strangely enough a week ago I said to my partner that I wondered if you were okay as you hadn’t posted in a while but we just thought you might have been really busy! I must have had a premonition, just stay positive! :) x

  2. Beautiful images, I’m sorry to hear you’ve had a hard time. Sending you love. :)

  3. Sorry to hear about your hard times sweetie, hope things are getting easier for you now xx love your silver boots!

  4. Hey, hey! I’m catching up after a lovely christmas break, I am really happy to see you are feeling better and up for a new year of challenges, and blogging a lot again! It’s a nice summary of your time in Sweden, I was following your pic posting on instagram as you suggested :) (I already thought our cats were alike, but even the names are ^_^ my kitty’s called Noa). Super, super happy to read you! xxx
