Back to reality it is…!!!
I already miss Bosnia, the atmosphere, the wonderful places we visited and all the amazing people we met.
Can’t wait to go back ASAP!!!
One of my favorite co workers is retiring next week and yesterday everyone that working in my department decided to do something fun for here. We first hade the traditional swedish ‘fika’ which is basically coffee and a cookie and then we went bowling. I hurt my thumb a little and had to put ice on it but I was still happy.
After that we drove to the horse racetrack and watched a few races and had dinner. And judging from this mornings thank you email, I’d bet money that she had fun!
Here are some pictures:
Started my morning of right, with 40 minutes of yoga. Then straight to work after. Meetings and problem solving all day. I’m gonna end my day with a meeting at my accountants office and then dinner with a dear friend.
Today, the only time I had to relax for 10 minutes was my lunch break. Ate a salad in the car, listening to the rainfall. Love that sound…
As you are reading this I’m at a Christmas dinner with my co workers. And this is what I’m wearing. Originally I was gonna wear a red skirt with a black top and boots but I couldn’t find the skirt anywhere so I had to go with this, last-minute. I’m wearing my hair in a bun on the side and my makeup is very light. Got very many compliment on my makeup already!
I spent the weekend with a lot of my favourite people.
Friday around 3PM I left work and drove about two hours to meet up with my sister, her BF and a friend. We started off with a little bit of shopping and then dinner. Sushi! You guys know I love sushi. After dinner we had about two hours until the movie so we went to a cafe and got some hot chocolate. All of a sudden, out of nowhere B and G, two friends I haven’t seen in a really long time showed up and sat down with us. Catching up was a lot of fun. Can’t wait to see them again. After that we went and saw Hunger Games: Catching Fire and I absolutely loved it. I liked the first movie, but loved the second one…soooo good. By the time I walked in to my mom and dads house it was almost midnight.
Saturday started very early. I woke up at 7AM and med up with Ada at 7.30. We took a short walk together before she had to head to work. Very nice catching up with her as well. I went back home and sat with mom and dad for a while, while they had coffee. Then I went to the car wash and got my baby clean. Picked up my sister och went to mom and dad’s again for breakfast. Got ready and then went shopping. Picked up a few things I might show you in a haul. After shopping we headed to Oskarshamn, a town of the east coast of Sweden. It was my aunts 60th birthday. We arrived there around 3PM I think. First coffee and then a late lunch before a ton of chill and playing with the kids. Did my little cousins make up for a performance she was doing that evening. She’s 10 so it was very little and light, with a white eyeshadow. Sister did her hair. We went to the venue around 7pm. All of us but my dad and uncle. Old men, you know. LOL
There was a party after and we ended up staying after 11PM, lots of dancing and fun with the family. We requested a few songs for my aunt and the band, who were really good, shouted her out. She was embarrassed and wanted to go home but also said it was a great and memorable birthday! I’m happy she had fun.
Sunday we woke up pretty early around 8.30, the kids had football practice and left around 9.15. My cousin, her husband and I just sat around the table and talked. Around 11 the rest of the family showed up and we had some coffee and dessert before we headed back home. Stopped by a small shopping mall on out way back and did some shopping. Dropped my parents and sister off and drove home. Got in around 6PM. Unpacked, took a shower, watched a movie and went to bed around 9.30.
Great but short weekend. Wish I could have spent a little more time with my family because I don’t get to see them often. They live almost 4 hours away!
I’ve had a very busy but really fun weekend.
Started saturday with nice breakfast and then got my car detalied…it’s now super clean!!! After that my dad and I went shopping and then home for a few hours. I made us lunch, cleaned up, got ready and then we left for Stockholm. We went to our cousins house and spent a few hours there. Watched the Klitschko-Povetkin fight and honestly I can’t believe Povetkin made it all 12 rounds. It looked like he was going down in the sixth or seventh round but he stood up and fought. Good match! But of course Wladimir Klitschko won.
As soon as it ended my dad and I left for the airport. We went to pick up my grandparents. Came home around 2AM and fell asleep sometimes after 3AM.
Woke up around 10AM Sunday morning and had a long breakfast with my dad before he left. I cleaned up around the house and then went to see my grandparents for a few hours. I love them so much, they are 79 years old and very open-minded about life. Makes for an easy relationship. I came home around 4PM and spend the whole afternoon getting everything ready that I need to pack…
Yesterday after a very intense three-hour meeting I met up with Ami, J and A for a bite to eat. As usual it was so much fun, the four of us always have a blast together. Around 8 PM it was time to head home and while I was driving I made a call to a ‘new friend’. Well let me tell you, I got super confused! LOL It was a very short conversation but it was all me this me that. I can greatly appreciate being busy and working hard, trust me, I respect that a lot. But damn, that’s all you talk about all the time though??? I’m not an attention seeker but I do like when someone at least asks me how I am or what’s going on with me!
Probably working late today and then it’s time for a cup of tea and I’m gonna continue reading Fikret Hodzic’s book ‘…i ja sam iz Srebrenice’. It always makes me cry…
