A good day

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.
