Two days ago I blogged about getting myself a new cellphone. Yesterday, in other words the day after my blogpost the joystick on my phone got broken. Now I need a new one faster than I thought. I am thinking of this one, what do you think?

I think I’ve helped Anna to compose Christmas gift rhymes for her whole family now. Talking about gifts I don’t know where my gift comes from but I just like to compose rhymes. So if you have problems with your rhymes, I can help. My family is just boring and doesn’t have any rhyme tradition so I probably won’t write any rhymes to my own gifts this year.

Why no “fika”word in english?

School Posted on 2008-12-17 15:00:55

Ok. Explanation: Fika is both a substantive and a verb in Swedish. To fika is when you sit down and drink a cup or coffee or whatever substitute you like together with a cinnamon roll, a cookie, cake, sandwich or whatever. Either you do it at a café, at home, at work or outside. Mostly together with someone but you can also do it by yourself.
A fika is what you drink/eat whern you are “fikaing”.

Example: “Do you wanna go and fika with me?”

So why is there no such word in english?

Yesterday I had a christmas-fika twice. First we did fika in school together with the education leaders. Coffee or tea, gingerbreads, clementines and candy-santas! It was nice that they did something for us as a little breaking-up cermony before christmas. Next fika was together with Anna, Jenny and Sanna at a café after school. I ate a delicious chocolate cake (in Sweden we call it kladdkaka) with whipped cream and a cup of tea.

Thank you everyone for a really nice atumn term that went very fast in my opinion!
