On Midsummer this year me and Emelie held the biannual event of The Potato Championships. I made a video. It’s not great, but I had fun making it. Also I was tipsy filming it. Whatevs. Potatoes for the win!
So, I haven’t been good at updating here cause I’ve been working! But I’m getting there. Slowly! In the meanwhile, here are som gifs I’ve made since being back in Sweden
Went to the goodbye picnic of Heli and Alex today and caught these photos of Eric chewing and Heli swatting flies or dancing (who knows). I couldn’t help but gif that stuff! Keep on chewing, Eric!
And Heli swatting flies! Well I dunno really.
Hip hip hooray to Angela today! Or well, not today technically. Technically it was her birthday last Wednesday but we celebrated in the park on Saturday. It was an arvo of confused weather (too hot in the sun and too cold in the shade!) a cute baby and a bunch of lovely folks. Plus food! Who can complain? Certainly not me.
Picnic on a Saturday afternoon in the sun? Yes please! I would write more but I’m too tired. Just look at the photos. Bye!
What are the odds that friends from Melbourne happen to come to London at the same time you’re there? I’d say quite high, but against the odds (geez, I need to stop use the word odds or we’ll all go insane) I met up with Lyndsey and Anne the other day, who had arrived from Melbs just that morning. We strolled around West End and Soho, taking in the sights and enjoying a lunch in the crypt and delicious cocktails at a hidden bar. The only thing I can complain about is the end of it: something I’d eaten wasn’t agreeing with my stomach, so I headed back to London Fields and spent the evening on the couch watching bad tv series, while Lani and Dylan were enjoying drinks. The envy! Oh well, better get better than go out and feel bad!
Best way to spend a Friday night? At a warehouse full of food trucks and bars and people. OH how I have missed shooting food as well. We ate and drank and I put away the camera when we continued the night at an amazingly cute garden place next door.
It was my first midsummer in Sweden in 5 years and damn, it was good, full of sunshine and ice cold water, saunas, beer, croquet and spontaneous kitchen concerts. I’ll have to be back for more next year.
Can totes summarise life right now. The last week I’ve had essentially all waking hours scheduled with stuff and I’m tired. Oh so tired. I have another couple of fairly intense days ahead of me, but after that: hopefully a couple of days of relaxation. Wish me well.
Until then I’ll leave you with a summery shot from yesterday afternoon/evening, which was spent with a some friends + one cute kiddo!
Say hi to Maria. She’s probably gonna bash me for posting these, but I DON’T CARE. She’s awesome, in every kind of way.
