Third day in Sweden included a heck of a lot of work in the morning and all the family in the evening. My parents picked up me and Peter and we headed out to my brother and his family in their little summer cabin just outside of Stockholm.
This summer has been insane in Sweden, there was barely any rain until August and almost 30 degrees every single day. I’ve never experienced anything like it in all my life. When we got there in July lots of trees had already started drying out and changing colour and it was quite eerie. So while I was contemplating heat waves and climate change while watching the dried oak trees around their cabin, my niece and nephew trampolined, we cuddled the cat (our old cat, Ella! She’s a gem!), went down to the newly opened BBQ place close by and had dinner and then went back to watch football. You know, the world cup. We had such high hopes for Sweden but alas, it all failed. I can’t remember if this was the night they lost, but let’s go with that. I think it was.
Anyway! Good times! I miss having my family around. I know I am biased, but heck I like ’em. Lucky us my brother + family are heading down under for Christmas. Can’t wait!
