Weekend for my grandfather

Last weekend was spent with my family. It started on Thursday last week when my grandmother turned 90. We celebrated her birthday just with the closest family since the Friday was dedicated for my grandfather and his funeral. It was a really good and memorable funeral where we took farewell of my grandfather. Afterwards we had a memorial time together where we got to share our thoughts about him. On the Sunday service in church the Caring pastor held a little speech in memoriam of my grandfather as well. So the weekend was all dedicated for my lovely grandfather. I love and miss him but I know he is better off where he is now.

I would’ve liked to share the slideshow I made in memoriam of my grandfather and showed at the funeral with some of you but I don’t want to make it official all over www.

December 2009

Phew, time for the very last blog post in this summary of 2009. It’s been boring, probably even more boring for you. Next year I’ll do it in another format. Promise.

Life in General:

December was a month I don’t want to experience again. Some days I was frustrated and angry, some days I was sad, some days I was happy but I don’t remember those days…

Friends:

I celebrated minichristmas at Pernilla’s, Stefan’s and Alice’s house together with Anna, Andreas and Tobias. We ate good food (not Christmas food) and had a nice evening together. One week later I celebrated New Years Eve in the same house with the same people, plus Jenny. A nice evening as always with my friends in Linköping.

Family:

The 28th of December was the last time I met my grandfather Bernth on this earth. He slept while I was there but when I was about to leave and realised that I had forgot to say good bye I ran back to his bed, grabbed his hand and said “Good bye grandpa”.

My family tried to celebrate Christmas as we always do, but it wasn’t like any other year. After spending the whole day by my grandfathers bed we went home in the evening. But we were all thinking of the only one who weren’t with us when we ate the Christmas food and handed out the gifts. It was all done in about two hours.

Personal:

I wrote a blog post about how I felt about living a journalist life.

LiA:

Interviews, interviews, interviews.. and a lot of writing in vain.

Work:

I worked at Lagos Mode one day in December, or not even one days, I think I worked for about three hours. It was the first day on the sale, the 26th of December.

Social Media:

I won the autumn competition at skyltat.se and got a Nokia 5800 Xpress Music which my brother is the happy owner of today.

I had a down period in this blog and just published five blog posts. I was probably out of words…

Trips:

I made one weekend-trip to Östergötland in the beginning of the month but the day before Christmas Eve I went there and stayed for the rest of the month.

Technology:

I bought my lovely iPhone 3GS 32 GB. Probably the best thing I have ever bought.

Film:

I actually got 6 movies from Marcus and CC for Christmas. The Lord of the rings trilogy and the Beck 21-24 box.

Mobile shot:

Photo:

I forgot my camera at home when I went to Östergötland for Christmas and I hate myself for that. No photo of the month. I suck.

April 2009

Life in general:

April was a really good month for me when I enjoyed myself most of the time. I loved being at my internship company Mentor, I bought some new tech gadgets and I had some great times together with my wonderful friends..

Friends:

In the beginning of the month I attended the Bachelorette party for Pernilla in Linköping. We had dinner at Harry’s and went to the theater to watch Cabaret. On Easter Saturday I went to Linköping again to spend some time with Anna, Andreas, Tobias and Björn, I got to see Anna and Andreas new house and experienced Ljungsbro by night. The day after Stefan and Pernilla also joined us for some quality time together.

Sanna and her friend Sandra had a little party with “children’s party” theme, I went there with Lorraine and even though we weren’t alot of people at the party we had great fun and lots of good laughs.

In April, Stefan and Pernilla also got married and had a party for their friends in their house in Linköping which I of course attended.

Family:

During the Easter holiday my brother, sister-in-law and I where all at my parents house. I harassed them the whole weekend with my new camera. I also visited my grandfather at the recovery clinic this weekend.

LiA:

I was at Habit more or less the entire month. I enjoyed my time and wasn’t happy at all about going back to school in the end of the month.

Trips:

As you might have understood from what I have written above I made a lot of trips to Östergötland during April, actually I made three of them.

Technology:

In April I bought a new cellphone after I had had my Sony Ericsson K700i for 4,5 years. The Sony Ericsson C902 is already to old to fulfil all my needs though and before 2009 was over I abandoned the phone.

I bought a new camera which I love but don’t use often enough to become the good photographer I would like to be.

I also attended an evening class in InDesign this month which took place in the Mac classroom at Medieskolan.

Film:

The only film I watched but most of all produced in April was the film about Stefan which I gave to Stefan and Pernilla at their wedding party. The film was really appreciated.

Mobile shot:

The mobile shot of April is this.

My brother got enough of me playing with my new cellphone camera and showed me this face.

The photo of the month is from when I was at Grand Hotel for a pressbreakfast where Marianne Bernadotte gave a scholarship to the designer Helena Hörstedt. And I caught the old lady while she was drinking juice directly from the bottle.

In memoriam

My grandfather Bernth died this morning. After almost 92 years he fell asleep peacefully for the last time today.

My grandfather was a man who enjoyed life most of the time. He loved children and as his grandchild I couldn’t have gotten a better grandfather. My brother and I were the apples of his eye. Even when he became older and infirm, when he met children, his eyes really shone and he was playing with them as best as he could. He used to lark about with adults as well as children and he was full of great stories. If it wasn’t stories from his life as a milk machine fitter at farms all over the country, it was made up stories he had learned as a child about trolls and giants around the Örebro area where he grew up. I have spent many days in my grandmother’s and grandfather’s garden, where we played soccer or crocket together, times which are great memories for me. During his life my grandfather spread a lot of joy and laughter around him. He also had a very big heart, he always cared about people around him and wished them prosperity.

Even though he was very weak and mostly slept the last two weeks of his life, he wanted and tried to hug my brother and me less than a week ago when we visited him. He really loved us and we loved him.

Since he believed in God all his life, I think he is better off where he is now.

January 2009

*~’`^`’~*-,._.,-*~’`Happy New Year! ´’~*-,._.,-*~’´^´’~*

I will try to summarize the year of 2009 according to me, with 12 blog posts. The first post in my summation will be categorized as follows.

Life in general:

The first month of the year was mostly about school for me.  I had a lot to do with school work and I didn’t leave Stockholm during the whole month.

Family:

For my family January wasn’t the best month. My grandfather broke his femur and he will never be able to walk again.

Friends:

I celebrated the new year with my best friends at Tobias summer cottage.

School:

School was all about the term project which I together with Anna and Elisabeth. I was going back to php coding, which I really enjoyed. We also had a term exhibition where we presented our project for the school and other interested people. In the end of the month I wrote my term examination and got a good grade ;)

Personal:

I wrote this personal blog post about my life as an avaocado plant.

Technology:

I bought an Olympus digital voice recorder which has been very useful throughout the year.

Coldplay won three out of three Rockbears and I congratulated them and some other winners.

TV:

I followed Körslaget on TV and watched my friend Jon lose and my friend Elinor win.
