And the morning after F’s 11 birthday, off we went. The entire clan. Up to the northern part of Stockholm’s archipelago and the island Blidö. Where we finally got to experience the Mr’s childhood friend’s summer home (he’s been talking about it forever, that is how old they are). His childhood friend is also my former colleague and now a day lifelong friend’s husband. (It’s a long story, but in short it is all thanks to me and a little to the Mr).
We spent a few relaxing days. Where nothing was needed and everything appreciated. Kids playing, fishing and boating. Adventurous island tracking…
After the island relaxation we went to the capital where we hadn’t done anything if it hadn’t been for me. Read full story of my vacay breakdown here (only in Swedish). We did Skansen, Gröna Lund and some shopping. We ate, drank and watched live Allsvenskan soccer and I got totally star struck (according to my husband) when I walked up and said hello to a author, blogger, rhetoric expert Elaine Eksvärd. We simply had a great time time.
Happy days. Happy life.
