Half term 2

For the Autumn half term, at the end of October we headed south as far as we could. We needed a break after a long summer of sorting and clearing that was thrown to the wind when our house was broken into and trashed. Here are a couple of shots of the far south of Sweden.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

God rest you merry gentle folk let nothing you dismay
Here is hopefully a video, but if it doesn't work I have been given permission to use a picture drawn by my youngest daughter to wish you all:
En fredfull jul
och ett gott nytt år

Merry Christmas

Just for you Sarah, we managed to get hold of your very first LP artists,
The Not so New Seekers.
Perhaps not quite as fresh as they once were, but still going.
Unless your name is Sarah and it's your 50th birthday, then I probably would NOT WATCH the following clip!


With lots of love to you all...
I'm still around, just extremely busy. I'll try and visit as soon as things ease off... hopefully at the end of next week... or maybe the next...

The best way to travel

Inlandsbanan - the slow train that takes its time, stops to look at bear dens and waterfalls, lets you sit up front next to the driver, with guides that cheerfully solve problems and sing Jemtlands song as you cross the border, best train trip ever!
