A day with family

Sunday's fun day, remember? And mini-me surely had her fun today! They've recently open a new playground here in Uppsala that are built after the most recognised landmarks of the city. Like the castle, the river "Fyrisån" and the cathedral. And today we took mini-me there!


The castle. And yes, our castle is truly pink in real life. Pretty in pink!


And this is one of the castles three slides, all in different sizes.


And the cathedral, with the little pond I front of it, which I guess is "svandammen" (the swan pond) a famous pond in the city centre where there used to live a pair of swans beside like hundreds of mallards! They're dead now, and thinking of its size I'm glad that no other swans have chosen it to be their home. It's just to small and to many people around.


Pretty, don't you think? You don't really see it in this picture, but there's a cable railway (do you call them that even on a playground?) from the cathedral. Mini-me loved it! And there are a lot more funny attractions for the kids than these ones. Like boats, a snake and ladybugs (to climb on) and so on and so forth. If ever visiting Uppsala with children I (and mini-me) recommend you a visit!

Sunbathing

Lovely summer weather here in Uppsala today! Mini-me's spent more than two hours in the pool under my and my husbands watchful eyes!


I've tried to sit in the shade, most of the time. Sparing my skin from the hurtful, but so lovely, sunbeams. And of course wearing sunscreen all over! 😎


The legs are getting some sun though! 😁

Sun's up

Good morning friends,
The sun's up and so are we! I guess you could say we slept in when considering mini-me woke up around 7,30. But, as I was up at 3 this morning to let Morris in (second day in a row that she's missing at bedtime and thereby choosing to spend the night outside), I kind of felt I lacked sleep anyway! 😁


Today we're taking it slow, outside, enjoying summer! Bathing, reading in the sun, eating lots of fruits and drinking icy cold water! Looking forward to it!

Midsummer Eve

I wrote you the longest blog entry that just got lost when I published it! Gah!!! I hate that! 😡

So, in short! Lovely midsummer eve celebration spent with family and friends! A lot of love, laughter and food!
And picking flowers together!


My sister and niece!


Smoked salmon!


Egg halves! With shrimp, mayonnaise, caviar and dills.


Pickled herring. We had 5 different kinds of pickled herring on the table, but I only took pictures of this one, known here as "matjesill". This one served with sour cream and chives.


Raw spiced salmon, this one spiced with lime. We call it "gravad lax"! :)

Besides all this we had boiled potatoes, sausages, pâtés, green salad, bread, crackers and cheese, you know the smelly and delicious kind!


And for dessert, which I made, strawberry cheesecake with chocolate cake! Olle, if you're reading this, it's the one you got the recipe of!


Super-delicious and of course both gluten and lactose free!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Night before Midsummer Eve

Hello friends,
I'm finally resting after a day filled with "to do's" and work! Tired but content! Looking forward t the summer vacation, but I still have two more weeks to go!


Tomorrow's Midsummer Eve which means us swedes dancing around the maypole with flowers in our hair, eating pickled herring, smoked salmon and strawberry cake with a lot of whipped cream. And of course, drinking to much snaps!


I'm not a fan of snaps, so I'll stick with the water, but I'll be having both the herring, salmon and dessert! I'll be sure to give you pictures tomorrow night! We're celebrating the holiday with my sister and her family, my mother, my youngest brother and my best friend and her son! So looking forward to that! Hope you all will have a nice weekend!

Laters babes!

Go Sweden

Tonight Sweden's playing their last soccer match in the group play of the 2016 European Championships! We're playing against Belgium, and we have to win if we're to continue on to the playoffs! And as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, our best player, announced yesterday that the championships will be his last games in the national soccer team, all eyes are on the team to perform! Zlatan wants to leave as "a legend", just as he said when leaving PSG; "I arrived as a King, but I leave as a legend!" No lack of confidence there!

So, I think I'll join in on the masses, and watch the boys tonight! I usually don't, although I once played and loved soccer (from the age of 7 until my early twenties). But tonight I'll send them my support! Go Sweden!!! Go, go, go, go Sweden!

Flower girl

Mini-me loves flowers. Or actually mostly picking the flowers. And then giving them away. To me for example, or her daddy. Today we got one each! And some sticks and grass to go with them!❤️


My husband and I are planning our new kitchen tonight. Exciting! Or maybe not! IKEA has away to get on your nerves, like missing screws when trying to put that flat package into a furniture! An entire kitchen might prove challenging!!!

I'll let you know how it went! 😁

Shop til you drop

I like shopping. Being a girl I guess it's in my genes! 😜 And there's a lot of good online stores out there, open 24/7! But I have a favourite! Campadre! Even my husband love shopping at Campadre! "Campadre is a campaign-driven website where members purchase exclusive clothing, accessories, home decoration and lifestyle products, all at unbelievable prices."

You find the store here!

You need to be a member to take part of all their campaigns, but the membership doesn't cost anything! I buy the majority of my clothes here, and actually all my bags and sunglasses too. And quite a few pair of shoes as well!

Making friends

My body's trembling, with exhaustion! Just because I had the brilliant idea of making new friends today. They moved in last week, and I've been throwing them an eye or two, but I've not taken the time to get to know them until today. And truthfully, Mr Green and Mr Yellow, well, we kind of got off on the wrong foot! I would say we're more like acquaintances than friends! This far!


Mr Black and I had a much better connection though! We're more on the same page! 😜

We have a Mr Blue as well, but he's more likely to be my husbands friend than mine! At least in the near future! He's a big and heavy guy, and I dare not face him yet! 😂

I'm super proud to have done my first Kettlebell workout today, but my body's kind of hate me right now! My legs are still shaking even after resting and showering! I guess tomorrow's going to be worse...

Now I'm off to bed, hoping I'll sleep like a baby after my workout!

Chasing cats

I've been out chasing cats! Our cats. I still like them to be indoors at night as they're still very young, especially our little girl Morris that's just over seven months old.
Of course they've a totally different option on the matter! They don't want to go inside at all! And really, who could blame them with this amazing summer sun still up close to eight in the evening and still hours of daylight left!


So, I've retreated back inside, with a clear view of the open door! Ready to close the door the minute one of them sets a paw inside! 😜

Laters babes!
