Tough days…

This week has been pretty tough for me at work. We have been a few men/women short and I have been working like mad trying to get everything to work out in all departments. I have also tried to keep the blog up at the same time. Today I brought raspberrymuffins with swedish flags to the staff since we all have worked very hard this week and also with a good result. We are simply the best ;)

Next week will be easier, we will have a bigger staff and I will not work as many hours as I’ve done this week. I have this weekend off work so tomorrow I am going to Örebro for a relatives gathering in the castle. Pictures will probably come later on :)

My summer weekend in Stockholm

When I came to Stockholm and my apartment Friday evening I was pretty tired after a hard week at work so I was just chilling at home. I woke up pretty early Saturday morning and went to a nature reserve close to where I live. It’s called Judarskogen and there is a lake called Judarn. It was wonderful to be in the nature and I took a lot of photos. Here is one of them.



When I came back home I took a shower and went to Södermalm where I had lunch before I took a walk at what we call Söders höjder. From the hills I photographed some of  the beautiful views of Stockholm.

After my walk at Södermalm I walked over Skeppsbron to Kungsträdgården and Gallerian where I bought ice-cream at the best ice-cream shop in Stockholm called Montis. While eating the ice cream Jenny called me up and said that Peter and Adam where at a party at Långholmen and asked me if I wanted to join with her. Said and done, I went home to eat something and get ready for some party.

When Jenny and I arrived it appeared to be a rave party. I have never been to a rave party before so that was a new experience for me but it was fun and the atmosphere was wonderful. To bad it started to rain later in the evening so we went home pretty early. I didn’t bring my camera so sadly I have no pictures from the party. I should have taken some pictures with my cellphone but I just didn’t think of it while I was there

Today I have been cleaning and fixing to make my apartment look nice when my parents come here. They will stay here for a night when they are visiting Stockholm in a few weeks. Soon I am taking the train back to Norrköping and will stay there for another month. It was wonderful to be back in Stockholm and it was great to see Jenny, Peter and Adam again.

I didn’t know I was a stockholmer

I’ve always been told that if I move to Stockholm I will never move back.  To some extent I have agreed with that but mostly because I don’t want to live in my hometown. Not because I have thought that Stockholm will catch me forever.  Now it is 8 months since I moved and these months have been hovering between hope and despair. The first three months I was longing for my friends in Linköping so much that I couldn’t enjoy Stockholm at all. I still miss them from time to time because together with them I feel like I’m home. But later, during the spring Stockholm has got another taste in my mouth, a taste that actually is good and I have started to like it. Stockholm has begun to feel like a home, thus, not said that I can’t have more than one home.

So, now when I went to my hometown to work during the summer I didn’t really think that I would miss Stockholm that much. I have said that it is a pity that I am leaving when Stockholm is at its prime but not that I would miss our capital city. Last week I have come to understand that I do. I miss Stockholm. But on friday I am going home. Just for the weekend though but still. I am going home to Stockholm.

A day off work

I have this day off from work and it’s the suckiest weather you can imagine. Bad luck, but I will not just sit inside wasting my day because of that. Nah.. I will probably take the tram down town.
