Weekly update 15/52 Easter break

Easter break was great. We went home to Sweden and got to see both snow but also nice and sunny spring weather. We haven't been since Autumn-break so it felt good to go home and see family, friends and our house. We managed to do a lot during our two week break. 
Landed in Stockholm and stayed with my mother. Me and Mila went with my sister to her horse in real April weather. After stable we went to see Ronja the Robber's dauther at Theater Intiman in Stockholm. Great show for the whole family. 


After Stockholm up to Tällberg and skiing in Grönklitt Orsa - great weather and kids loved skiing 






Mila's first show jumping competition - Easter maskerade jumping at my old riding school 
She rode her summer camp pony Candy and managed a nice clear round 


Easter egg hunt in the forrest. The Easter bunny had left yellow feathers to follow through the forrest up to the Troll mountain 



Traditional Swedish Easter lunch - with eggs, salmon, omelett, sill, meatballs, sausages, potatoes, caviar etc etc 


Visited friends and had friends over. Filip decided he wanted to catch a fish ( for the pond)  and picked the sunniest day for it. 


Time home at Lundsätter - relaxing but also preparing the garden for summer. Potatoes, onions, garlick, carrot, sugar snaps and persilja planted and huge fence put up to prevent all the deer from eating it. 



Our dog Bozze was happy to have us home for a few days 



Happy Easter!

Påsken 2021

Vi flög till Stockholm och hängde några dagar hos mamma i deras nya lägenhet inne i stan. Barnen testade leka i Vasaparken rakt över gatan. Första vårsolen värmde äntligen lite. Det kändes härligt och konstigt att folk satt på uteserveringar och att restauranger och caféer var öppna. Prinsesstårta, semla och påskbakelse på en uteservering. Jag passade på att klippa mig eftersom frisörerna varit stängda sedan december och min man vuxit sig lång. Jag följde med Sofie ut till stallet och red hennes fina häst medan barnen hade movie night med mormor.  Nere i Vingåker fick vi äntligen träffa Bozze och morfar. Leka med bästis och grilla med farbror Christer. Min morfar var färdig vaccinerad och bjöd oss på våfflor. Barnen gick till frisören och blev kanonsnygga i håret. Lekt mycket med grannbarnen och njutit av att kunna spring och ut hur och när man vill.  En morgon vaknade vi till snö. Aprilväder. Filip och jag gick en före-frukost promenad i skogen för att njuta av snön. Eftersom det ändå

More honesty to the world, please...

I was looking for quotes about honesty and found: " Honesty has come to mean  the provilege of insulting you to your face without expecting redress."                                                          /Judith Martin "People who are brutally honest get more satisfaction out of the brutality then out of the honesty"                                                    /R J Needham What is wrong with people?? Is this really the view about honesty??  I am seriously chocked!! My new hairdresser ís very honest... Last time I was there she told me my hair has a dull cardboard box tone...  I understood directly that it can't be a good thing to compare my haircolor with a greyish box... Thanks to honesty my hair is now shiny in a brown/redish color... My hair is looking good and I am a happy and satisfied customer If you ask me Honesty & Honest people rules!!!

24/52 Weekly update A stand at Kiwifalter Summerfest

I got asked if I wanted to have a stand at Kiwifalter Summer fest this week. Kiwifalter here in Düsseldorf is a family center which organizes gymnastic, dance, art classes and many other courses for all ages. I was happy to be asked and decided that even with super short notice I think I can get my stuff together.    It was a super super warm day +33 degrees but all went well and most popular was my hairbands Happy to bring my new earrings and Mila was a great helper  Some time ago me and a friend was planning a better display for my hats and found this pegboard in Ikea and together with a easel to hold it upright. I am very happy with this display so much nicer to see the hats then having them laying down.
