I haven’t blogged for a week.It got too much for me, work and all that. I have been working quite a few hours this week, and with a trip to Luleå (in the far north of Sweden) and our annual conference “Make it Great” on Thursday I just didn’t find the time.
So, lots been happening and I might try to fill you in later this week.
Sunday started with my favourite soap on telly, Esastenders. I have to get my weekly fix and I have missed it for the past few weeks.
I enjoyed a fix of Albeert Square and a coffee with Pixie. She didn’t mind the telly much, instead she was drawing princes and princesses. She loves them right now and I have to make out the shapes of a princess and she then coloured it in.
I subsequently began to bake and clean. I am such a good wife. No shopping today!
I had promised Pixie we would go out to the park to skate and I realised that this was the plan for the day. It’s amazing how long it takes three people to get ready, but we did it, one by one.
We got in to our winter gear, even though we are yet to see any snow in Stockholm it was freezing today. I even went down to the basement to get my North Face boots ut but couldn’t find them. Instead I brought up three boxes of Christmas decorations.
We finally headed down to Vasaparken, in central Vasastan It was full of people, mums, dad, kiddies and other loose people.
Pixie did really well. She tried to skate on one occasion last year but she was too little. She tried to keep her balance and slid one foot after the other on the ice.
She did sooo well!
After skating we went to Ritorno, one of my old haunts on Odengatan. They do great coffee and cakes. It’s been one of my regular places to hang ou since I first came back to Swedeb 3 years ago, and we try to get back there every so often.
Pixie completely freaked out when they didnät have any straws. man, she can be such a little terror. In the end Mark went a found one and she finally calmed down.
One the way home we decided to get a Christmas three, we went around for a while until we finally found one on Rörstrandsgatan. I think Mummy was the most excited bout the whole venture. Pixie rode on my shoulders going home so that Mark could push the three in the buggy.
We had a lovely evening dressing the three and lightening the second of the Advent candles. I am glad I got plastic baubles instead of glass ones. They were dropping like bouncing balls, and Pixie laughed every time one hit the floor.
