Catch up…

Sunday, March 28, 2010 No Comments

Thought I’d just add a quick post, for those still following my little blog… 1. The Swedish For Immigrants classes are going ok. I’m learning new stuff all the time, although I keep thinking it’s going slow, I do surprise myself when I can understand more and more of people’s conversations. So it must be [...]

Could the weather be about to change?

So, it’s been so long since we didn’t have snow on the ground that I’m now getting rather excited to see something other than freezing temperatures and snow… even the thought of a bit of rain is filling me with some joy, because then it might melt the snow at least!! Whilst I’ve loved this [...]

After-snow-2010-9

Okay, so perhaps I exaggerate a little with the title, but, the last blog post I wrote whilst sitting here in the dining room of my house with the snow coming down in buckets, and the wind whistling around the house…. I was worried that I’d perhaps have to be rescued by helicopter from the [...]

Yes, I’m afraid I just can’t let this last 24 hours go by without a record on my blog for prosperity… Yesterday started just like any other normal day, I went to school at 8am and discussed the weather and the snow as usual… There was the odd mention of snow storms, high winds etc [...]

Lovely weekend with friends from England

Our first visitors form England since we moved to Sweden were Lian and Pete, and it was nothing short of AMAAAAZING to see them again after just over 3 months. They arrived in Sweden on Friday morning, and met me after school in the local bar in Eslöv for beers and some lunch. From then [...]

Betty catching snowflakes

Sunday, December 20, 2009 No Comments

This is a quick video of Betty, our kitten, trying to catch snowflakes in the windowsill. I thought she was so cute, I just had to record it. Sadly my mobile phone didn’t like the fact that the snow outside was so bright, so it put the cat in silhouette. Hopefully you can get the [...]

Even more snow in Sweden...

Even more snow in Sweden…

Compared to the previous photo of this pump, much more snow has settled...

So, this evening I posted some photos of the snow here… but as I was uploading them, more and more snow fell. So tonight, we went for a ‘play’ in the snow and it was fantastic… perfect snow for snowballs, and for making lovely scenery on the bushes, trees, and house… Okay, that’s it now. [...]

Snowing in Sweden

Snowing in Sweden

Wednesday, December 16, 2009 1 Comment

Here's a pheasant that I saw slowly walking around in the garden. Walking on an big old log.  I took the photo from the kitchen window so it's a bit blurry.

We’ve had snow for a couple of days in Sweden. Today it started to melt a little, but now this evening it appears to be settling again, and more is forecast. I thought I’d snap some photos around the house just before it went dark, so that I could remember my first proper snowy winter [...]
