Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings


My little girl loves the cinema and we try to see a movie from time to time together. Off course we get a lot of movies with Netflix at home but going to the cinema, ordering the popcorn and a drink and then heading to the salon is a special experience. Tinker Bell has become a major favourite and when we heard that a new Tinker Bell movie was coming out we just had to go. In Solna, where we are moving, there is this cute little cinema in old … [Read more...]

Happy Halloween!


In our house we feel the pressure to keep up with the Irish holidays… Overall it’s been a hectic week, lots of meetings with prospective new clients and work on my new series of articles for our newsletter and blog. On Thursday I posted my first meaningful blog post on the company site and I am hoping that it will be the start of something new, establishing my company as the experts and thought leaders on workplace culture in Sweden. On … [Read more...]

Making the move


In two weeks we make the move from Vasastan to Solna, we're not going far but far enough to make me feel a little sad. It's been a wonderful almost 3.5 years here in Röda Bergen (Red Mountains) and our first proper home as a family. Although Pixie was born and spent her first few months in Dublin, we never really settled there. When we left Ireland for Sweden on Dec 1st 2008, I wasn't really sure what the move meant. Was it for three months or … [Read more...]

Sunday morning!


Sunday morning is usually spent on the sofa with a cup of coffee watching Eastenders, my absolute favourite soap and my only addiction (apart from shopping). The storyline is as depressing as ever, people being murdered, husbands and wives having secrets and alcohol problems. I am not sure if it is the best way to kick of a Sunday but, Hell, I'm addicted to it. Once I had my fix it was time to get down to business, busy day ahead with Dance … [Read more...]

My husband runs the collaborative arts movement  The Human Art Collective, although slow to get started, we are now finally at a stage where regular shows are arranged in partnership with Rica Hotel, Konstbar and Totally Stockholm. Last night was the first time Pixie joined her daddy for an Opening Night, a show featuring the Italian/Australian Artist Marco Cavazzana.  The show "“Prevailing Taste" was a great opportunity for Pixie to see what … [Read more...]

Autumnal garb and a new home!


The Times They Are a-Changin, we sold our home in Vasastan (central Stockholm) and the future in the burbs is calling. At the moment we are looking for a new home just outside the Stockholm City Tolls. Bromma, Råsunda, Midsommarkransen possibly Aspudden are the prime areas, and we go on excursions every Sunday looking for the perfect home. Autumn has arrived and the leaves on the trees have begun to turn yellow. We are yet to see the red mix … [Read more...]

Mallorca, here we come – day 1


  The day was finally here, the day we'd been waiting for for several months, well at least I had. We left our home early in the morning to make it to the airport in order to catch our flight to Mallorca. Mark and I were quite relaxed considering we had packed everything the night before and got up at 4.30, but Pixie who usually gets  car sick was very apprehensive about the journey. But she did so well, the taxi made it to the … [Read more...]
