The power of snail mail

Friends and Family Posted on 2009-05-15 19:22:08

Today I got an invitation for midsummer by snail mail. A not so frequent occurrence in this digital world. The fact that I usually never get snail mails from friends (except from when someone is getting married) makes me more happy about it than other invites. It also gives me a more positive attitude about the party when I see that they have put some effort in the invitation design. It makes me believe they’ll also put some effort in making a nice midsummer for their friends. So thank you Josefin and Björn, I’ll gladly spend my midsummer with you.

Hello again Sweden

Friends and Family Posted on 2009-05-10 19:25:37

I am back home in cold and boring Sweden. I have had a very good week at Crete together with my mum. The only bad thing was that the week started with three days of bad weather whom two of them were rainy. And with rainy I mean pouring rain. Cause there is no such thing as drizzle on Crete. But we used the rainy days for bus trips to small villages in the mountains, Knossos and Heraklion. When the sun finally found out there is still an island called Crete I burnt my skin of course. But I enjoyed my stay in Rethymnon and I will miss all the good Greek food I’ve eaten. The brothers at Restaurant La Mare in Rethymnon are my new favourite greeks. I have also been shopping at Crete. Hello new bag, sweater and necklace! I also bought a very nice body lotion made of Avocado oil in a little villiage where they produced it. It only costed my 6 euro and I’m sure I would’ve got to pay atleast 150 SEK for it in Sweden. All in all it has been great to go away from Sweden to just relax and forget about school etc for a week. I will post a link to my pictures in a while.. I am uploading them at the moment and well, it takes a while with my sucky Com Hem connection.

Good bye Sweden

On account of my mothers birthday next week I am bringing her to Crete tomorrow morning. (The plane goes at 7am). Even though it’s not super hot there now it will be nice to go away from Sweden for a while just to see some other things. And I feel prepared now since I have bought sunglasses, flip flops and sun protection cream. I am also bringing my training to Greece for which I have bought some new gear. So, bye bye Sweden. Hello Crete!

Wedding Party Pics

Here are some pictures from Stefan and Pernillas wedding party. If you don’t want to be here, yell at me! And… the order is backwards.

Life is good

Friends and Family Posted on 2009-04-12 23:24:03

I have the best friends in the world.
I have been in Linköping for two days and spent some time with them. I have seen Tobias new apartment (which is Annas old apartment) and I have seen Anna and Andreas‘ new house which was very nice and where I stayed over the night. I’ve also experienced Ljungsbro by night together with Anna, Andreas, Tobias and Björn. Something that appeared to be a bit scary. Cars, oil, drunks, mopeds and cats were involved.

Today I have been in Tornby together with Anna, Andreas, Pernilla and Stefan where I ate this years first real icecream. In the afternoon we ate grilled food at Pernilla and Stefans place.

But most of all, I have enjoyed the company and the sun and life has just been good to me. The only stupid thing was that I forgot to bring my camera.

Now I am back in Norrköping at my parents place and tomorrow I’ll take the train back home to Stockholm. I am a happy cow and this Easter holiday beats last years by far. (I had 39 degrees last year)

Happy Easter holiday

Happy Easter holiday blogreaders!
I am in Östergötland this holiday to spend some time with family and friends. I will also bring my new camera wherever I go. I got it two days ago (really fast cargo) so I am trying my best to learn the most useful functions and take good photos.

I have been at Mentor for four weeks now. Time goes really fast and I only have two weeks left. I am working at their fashion business magazine Habit, writing both for the web and the paper magazine. My biggest project is an article of 10,000 characters that will be published in the paper magazine in july. But I am also reporting news on the web daily.
An easter bird thingie, hanging in the lamp over the dinner table at my parents. Cute? 🙂

My weekend

Friends and Family Posted on 2009-03-15 20:55:14

I’ve had a really nice weekend. As I wrote in my last post my aunt and cousin has been here. We went to the cinema, played Ticket to Ride and were at a concert. In between we talked, laughed and had great fun. Sleeping three in my apartment worked great. I have my tabletricks 😉
