yes sorry for no posts this week…was in sweden for a wedding and now off to a job in Italy with New Kid shoes. The shoes are amazing, Only one pair I wouldn’t love wearing, and those I would still like wearing. Gonna pour down though so we will have to hoist a sun and create a forcefield a la captain janeway.

So exciting! She’s off to do her masters and be ace in a whole new city.  It’s brill! I’m going to miss her loads and loads and she will rarely find herself without visitors from down here.   Possibly it will become quite irritating, we will never know.  I’m also sans incredible swimmingprofesseur and support.

Just back from the island on the west coast of Sweden.  Lovely lovely time, I never want to leave, we did lots of work this time to sort out the bedroom but we also had Rosanna and Gwenan to stay yay!  Jon  made Stompa bread, we picked blackberries, we ate loads of Prawns, dipped in the freezing sea,  snuggled in the attic, took saunas and beers, decorated, listened to country night on radio Sotenas.  laid on the rocks, and watched tv (we don’t have a tv at home).  Jon’s lovely cousin Maria came too and her new beau who has the same name as the old one.  Must be funny when that happens.  It was so so stormy with huge waves thrashing the rocks and cutting off the paths,  we got a sunny day on the last day. Of course we did. Had 2 lovely weddings and hung out with Jon’s folks in Tällberg too.  Jon’s mum and me went mushroom picking and our mushroom smelling bedroom / drying room is a testament to our good fortune.  Had a wonderful time on my birthday too at home with everyone and smiles and a giant pavlova Ann would’ve danced for.

Here’s what I’m talking about…
