My Mum do genealogy, and I gave her a DNA test for her 70th birthday. Now the answer has arrived and yesterday she came over, as she felt she needed help to make sense of all the information. So now I know I belong to haplogroup H, and on my mother’s side I'm 100% European. To no big surprise she is 76% Scandinavian and 18% West/Central European. That should be all the Walloon ancestors who came to Sweden in the 17th century. But then there was 6% Finnish, which was a surprise. Mum’s theory is that comes from the Finnish soldiers Karl XI moved to the part of Sweden my Mum’s family comes from. Now I’m very tempted to purchase another kit and make my father do the test. There ought to be some East European and Jewish ancestry there.

This week I work sex days, so it was nice that my day off yesterday was so lovely. Though I’m not done with my sorting and decluttering, i have dones enough to really see a difference. Throughout March I have been consistent with doing 15 minutes of tidying every day, and you know what- it shows! Yesterday i woke up at 8, did the usual morning things and then did 15 minutes of tidying. Then I looked around to see if I need to do something more as my Mum, only to realise I didn’t need to do anything! I even had time to sew for 30 minutes before she arrived at 10. We had coffee, and checked the DNA analysis and chatted, and then I followed her to the bus station at 12.30 and then shopped. (I live a five minutes walk from the food store), and then had lunch. Took the dog’s on a long walk, sewed for another 30 minutes and then did pilates for another 30. Then I looked at the watch and realised it was only a little after 4 and I didn’t have anything to do until I was to start dinner at 6.

Such an odd sense of freedom! I’m so used to always feel I have a lot of household chores to do, but there was nothing! So I made myself a cup of tea and read until it was time to make dinner. After dinner husband and I spent some time together, and then I went to bed at 11.

I haven’t finished anything, though I am reading a lot. But then I am reading four things as once, as I usually do. I’m on a fairy tale trip lately. And my sister’s latest IVF-treatment didn’t work, which makes us all sad. So I’ll talk about one of my comfort books today.

I’ve been a low-key fan of Tom McRae for a long time now. I couldn’t find any good video of some of my favourites, though; Houdini and the Girl, The Ballad of Amelia Earhart and One Mississippi.

Darling, I'm lost,/Adrift in the dark/I'm clutching your words to my vampire heart once more/

So let in the light, turn me to dust/If it don't end in bloodshed, dear,/It's probably not love

We think that we're the ones we're the bright unconquered suns/Wait a while we'll watch the light grow stale/And we smell so very clean but we're the/Oil in this machine and this machine/This machine is going wrong

I’ve played my part, worked hard all my life/You stole from me the comfort of the night./And now the shadows grow, thrown by your fire light

It’s 25 years since Tori Amos Little Earthquakes was released. How strange that feels! It was one of those defining albums for me, something I listened to over and over, and still listen to, all these years later.

Give me life Give me pain/Give me myself again

Oh these little earthquakes/Here we go again/These little earthquakes/Doesn't take much to rip us into pieces

Cause what if I'm a mermaid/In these jeans of his/With her name still on it/Hey but I don't care/Cause sometimes/I said sometimes/I hear my voice/And it's been here/Silent All These...

Years go by/Will I still be waiting/For somebody else to understand

I’m still not a super fan of Tori Amos, but some of her other songs have had a deep impact. Like Spark where she sings of her miscarriage. It was released just after I had mine, and I listened to this song over and over, using it to express what I couldn’t say with my own words. And all these years later I still can’t listen to it without crying.

She's afraid of the light in the dark/6:58 are you sure where my spark is/Here/Here/Here

She's convinced she could hold back a glacier/But she couldn't keep Baby alive/Doubting if there's a woman in there somewhere/Here

Title: A Bewildered Heart

Rating: Mature
Genre: Drama
Word Count: 1522
Chapters: 4/?
Characters/pairing: Fabien Marchal/Sophie de Clermont.
Warnings: None so far
Summary: Sophie de Clermont is settling down to her new role in life, but Fabien Marchal still disturbs her peace of mind. If not exactly the same was as before.
AN: I couldn’t resist including Sweden in this chapter. It’s not so far-fetched, in my family tree there is a French Huguenot family who fled France in the 1660’s, establishing themselves in Stockholm and became quite prosperous silk merchants.

[personal profile] sallymn asked What are your favourite costumes in fantasy TV/film?

When it comes to the movies, I say Sleepy Hollow. I know it is set in 1799, but the costumes are largely 1770’s, with Lady Van Tassel’s clothes being pure fantasy. And Ichabod Crane’s mother wear a gown which is 1720’s, or so. Also, ghosts and witches. And it looks fantastic! So many lovely details and the costumes really enhances the story.

The doctor has added laryngitis to my bronchitis, which doesn’t surprise me at all as I have practically no voice. She also didn’t like the way my lungs sound, so she upped my asthma medication and I am to stay at home the whole week and rest. I will be very poor in March.

Anyways, here is the fic I wrote for Chocolate Box, though in truth the idea has been in the back of my head ever since I re-watched Labyrinth just after the news of David Bowie’s death.

Title: Only Forever
Fandom: Labyrinth

Summary: Sarah wakes up in the witching hour, feeling something has gone terribly wrong.

But not today. I’m still very far from well and my energy levels are, well, pretty low. I have no voice, a cough constantly and my chest hurt. It’s still “only” bronchitis, my doctor checked for pneumonia on Wednesday. I’ll need to get back to her tomorrow because I can’t work if I have no voice. I’m SO ready to be rid of this now! My husband is worried for me, which is uncomfortable because he is not the type who worries. I’m more fed up. I missed my belly dance lesson this week and will likely miss the one on Tuesday too. AND I missed the Divine Comedy-concert I had been looking forward to in months! But I had a temperature and such a nast cought that day. The friend I was going with could sell my ticket to someone else so I didn’t lose my money, but I feel bitter over the concert. Another reason to get well- I have tickets for Elvis Costello next Wednesday.

I spend my time reading and watching TV-shows. I’m a bit bored with that now. And napping. Lots of naps punctuated with coughing. I’m bored with that too. I would like to write more, but my body prefer the sofa over the computer chair.

I re-watched Deadwood, which will remain one of my favorite shows. I just wish it had been given another season. Season 3 doesn’t even end with a big finale, things are just halted and there are so many loose ends left hanging. So it was a nice surprise finding a pretty much perfect Deadwood-fic in The Chocolate Box. Not written for me, but if felöt like a gift anyway:

Black Darjeeling, Mature Alma/Al In which a partnership is formed and consummated. (May God help anyone who ever happens to get in its way.) The author has not only an eye for the character, the voices are perfect too! I could never mimic the very characteristic way Al speaks. The fic nicely sets off their very different characters and makes it work perfectly!

I got a nice little Mummy-fic as gift, but it’s extremely dark, so only read it if you are in the mood for it. Not at all explicit, but there are warnings for non-con and murder:

Bleeding For You (Falling Forever), Mature Evy/Imhotep She was his. Perhaps she had always been his, for thousands and thousands of years, destined to be his sacrifice.

The last few days haven’t been fun. Let’s sum it up to one word and leave it at that; mucus. I’m still weak as a kitten and mostly do as little as possible and feeling bored to tears. And feel like the donkey in Shrek who constantly asks if they are there yet, because this spring I look forward to several shows more than I usually look forward to such stuff.

Doctor Who )

Versailles )

American Gods )
