If someone was missing my posts on here, i am deeply sorry. I promised to write a little bit more often but for my defense: the app is not working on my phone anymore, the overblog plattform should make something about it and i have been a lot less on the road, so little less to tell.



This was how our midsommar week end began. Sunny on the balcony with bubble and strawberries. M doesn’t like strawberries, sp he got nuts. Well, nice but i never really felt this feeling of “oh, this is midsummer!!”. I think i will never be swede enough to feel it, this must be something you have to grow up with i assume?

The day after, we went downtown to see some traditional things, look by yourself the nice grey scale:



We did not do anything special during the week end, we just went to eat on a restaurant by the sea on sunday, it may have been the only place in Östergötland without rain just for lunch.



And then back home, we met:


And when i went to stockholm yesterday, i saw this:


So you see, we don’t have any problem with water here. And so long as we are working, i think it’s ok. The office is almost empty now, so it would be hard to focus on work if it would be very
sunny… But in some days, i hope for more sun!

Ok, time to cook for my man, have fun!


it has been a long time agon since i wrote here. Sorry for that! but i can tell you one thing: it happened some things to tell, so let me just download my own pictures and you will get an history in some hours maybe. Hang on!

for your patience, you get some pictures from our garden. :)

Gotland and Visby

Okay, here you go. The fabulous story of L and M on an island!

everything began a thursday, Swedish national day. 6th of june. Perfect weather and after some hours in the bus, we arrived at Bromma airport to fly to Gotland. For the one willing to read about the island, here is wikipedia: I couldn’t have said it better!

After a little taxiride, we cheched in at the hotel and it was a very perfect place to spend almost one week (for e at least). Look by yourself: link. The people were very nice and the room charming as well. We went to eat in a creperie on thursday evening and we ate outside with the view on the sea. Nice!


We went home pretty early and the first thing i made on friday was to go out for a run. I will write a special post about running in some minutes. On friday, we just took it easy, found a place right about the ocean and looked at it while sipping rosé wine and talking about all and everything. nice friday!

On Saturday, we borrowed some bicycles and under a big sun, we took a ride to a little place, south of Visby where there were something to see. Judge by yourself:

It took a lots of energy to ride there, with these bicycles that weren’t made for this and we were pretty tired when we went back to Visby, but happy of the sunbath. M took the plane back to the continent on sunday and i went out to eat lonely, it was not as funny to be there by myself actually, even if the view was also nice.

Madeleine, the second princess of Sweden had married on saturday, so i watched the wedding a couple of times, wishing it would happen to me too, with all the horses and so. Oh yeah, it rained on sunday evening, but i barely noticed since i went to bed pretty early, bored. Monday was also boring since i still was alone, and uncapable to focus to read the book i had taken with me.

On tuesday and wednesday, we had a meeting with my work and the first day was dedicated to see some projects we have, plus some nice landscapes from the north of the island. Here you go:

As you can see, it was a nice sun shining and i can tell you that it was too much for me: the same evening i began to feel bad but it went away some days later. A shame to move to Sweden in order to get an insolation!

The rest of the stay was spent inside a conference room, so not much to show.

Gotland was nice, but i am currently reading a criminal book with a story happening on the island, the manus is very convincing, so i think it will flew a little water under the bridges before that i put my feet there again!

What about running?

You may ask how i am doing with running? On Gotland, i did ran 4 times in 6 days, which is for me a good rate! It was hot as hell, even in the morning and the sea, even if it’s beautiful smelt as good as a died dog. This had a good effect on my running, since i wanted to skip that nauseabondous part.

I am getting very slow, i dunno why. Oh maybe it is because i haven’t ran intervall since a good month, i should be more addicted to it, but the last runs i made, it was just to make me feel good. Which worked.

Another new is that i bouhgt new confortable shoes. The white&red above are the “fast” shoes, light and the confortable ones are heavier but better made for long running. So please, welcome GT2000 in the familly:

It was really about the time when you see the difference between the old and the new on the picture above. I tested them yesterday and i felt so fast, fast as the wind, as least under the first 500m. I may test them some morning before to go to work this week, just in order to feel serious, but i will see.

This was the running telling. Not that much you may think, sorry!
