She's back...

Strawberry has returned. Here she is leading Ammelie back to her stall.
She came back and said she has become a Muslim and can now only eat muesli...

Ski slope

We are very lucky to have a ski slope just a few minutes away, but some of us don't want to stop skiing to have our photograph taken!
Strawberry has left us for the night, again. She left yesterday evening and then rang this afternoon to ask if she could stay away another night because she was having so much fun.

Papa pepparkaka!

The last of the Swedish Christmas ginger biscuits got made and eaten last weekend, this one was made by Strawberry and represents her grandfather, and he was, of course, delicious, according to her.

Here is Strawberry with her horse, this is for you Lori. Its white head is just poking out of the pocket on the rucksack. Strawberry wishes it was bigger and real, but she does get to ride every Friday, so I don't feel too sorry for her. We are on our way to visit Aunty M.

We went last Saturday by train leaving at 11 am and returning at 7.30 pm . It was a bright cold day with temperatures of minus 20 C. Perfect for a brisk walk to the railway station.

Happy New Year!

In between unpacking boxes we try and get out for some sunshine in the middle of each day. I f we're lucky then the sun pops up just above the horizon between 11am and 2pm.

Strawberry's New Year's resolution, she called it her "New Year's revolution",
was not to do any washing up during 2009.

At least I'll be saving on the amount of washing up liquid that's used!
