Vacay – no 2

After returning from Österlen, but before celebrating F’s 11 birthday, I stoped by at home, re packed and went off to a short overnight trip with “the women”. A constellation of women where I feel very welcomed but also a little as the least sharpest tool in the shed. I know that this feeling is…

Slope sliding

Returned home after a 7 day ski trip. Absolutely the best thing a family can do together. Absolutely the hardest thing a 40 year old body can do. But I got most bruises from getting up and down in the bunk bed… Today we will spend as good Christians, doing nothing. Tomorrow we need to…

In every teacher…

… is an aspiring actor. The other day I went to Fabian’s after-school activity. In Sweden all children with working parents have the right to attend “after-school activities (often/always? provided by the school/municipality) till they are 12 (thereafter they are considered to be old enough to care for them self). Anyway, parents were invited and…

A day in the sun

If the summer would getting grades, it would fail miserably this year. Until today (or two days prior if we are to be precize). We, however, haven’t gotten the chance to enjoy it, until today. The was spent with friends. First at the local pool and the kids were more in the pool than out…

Driving Dolph Lundgren

The other night I, as I usually do during week nights, drove offsprings to and from practise. Right there, I realized I wasn’t drivning Sam, I was drivning Dolph. Mr Dolph Lundgren was our pride And joy during the early 80’s. He was the one fighting Rocky Balbo as the tall blond, russian God – Drago. Returning home…

It ain’t that easy

Just looked through a marvelous photography project of Johan Bävman called Swedish dads. While reading the different stories it becomes clear for me that sharing the very generous parental leave system should be a non-question in a country like Sweden. Like one of the interviewed, Loui Kuhlau, father said:  “I have a hard time understanding why…

Proud

If you generalize, Swede’s are very poor at being proud over them selves. We are usually not the ones who will climb up a mountain and scream out our joy for being ourselves, just because we are soooo good. Or, maybe that is exactly where we would do it, as nobody would hear us on the…

Another day another doll…

Vacation continues and before the first rain hit we captured some more rays and crabfish, today we went to Laxvik.

A paradise on earth

I think there are as many paradises on God’s green earth as there are people. We visited one of our’s today – Hallands väderö. Visit Sweden in the summer (a good summer) and visit Hallands väderö. Crab fishing beats any computer game any day.    

Gone fishing

The Mr decided today’s activity. Fishing. I did what I love almost the most, take pictures without the need to deliver. But please do not be fooled by the idyllic scenes, we had a lovely time together on our excursion, but before and after we were haunted by the offsprings of satan. Really, think twice about…
