Midsummer

This was Midsummer this week end, meaning a three days week end. I needed so much to sleep that I made a little dance when I left the work on Thursday.

The first thing I did in the week end was a fail: I went to the gym directly after work and I came three minutes after the gym had closed. Fail. But I walked home and took a nap in the soffa until M came home instead. Worked well!

On Friday, we did not celebrate Midsummer, we were just at home, chilling, reading, admiring the sunflowers that grow on the balcony. It was raining also, so we watched some parts of Gomorrah and started a new serie From canal Plus.

Yesterday, it was a wonderful and warm day so we took a book each, a blanket and went to the park to rest there. After about 30 minutes I was restless and couldn’t stay in place. Nice, huh? We cale back home (after a little more time though) and changed clothes for a late run. It was nice, except the flies. And we watched more canal plus.

Today, long sleep, breakfast, stressing fotboll game For France and I tried for the first time of my life to make a tarte tatin. I knew I had to be careful with the caramel at the beginning but even if I tried to be patient, I think I burnt it. The pie is right now in the owen, but I am not very optimistic. Let’s see!

June the 18th 1998

This way a Thursday . A black day to me when two big bad news did hit our family. That was the day when my grand mother died, on vacation with her friends and the day my mother got to the hospital for her cancer surgery.

The summer and the years coming were serious and focused. It was also the summer France won the fotboll world championship at home.

Luckily was a baby girl born this same day and she turns 18 today. Congrats E! This makes me happy to see that you’re becoming a wonderful young woman (and that you love horses like I do).

And today, eighteen years later. It’s raining as hell in Uppsala and no one if M or I is getting motivated to buy groceries or clean our flat. Maybe later, alligator.

Summer, where are you?

Ok, i din write a lot the past months but work and bad weather is taking all my attention. Sorry!

We are trying to plan our summer Holliday and one constatation: it’s expansive when you decide yourself late… So we have even more difficulties to choose. Luxus problem.

For the rest, we had some beautiful days for some weeks but now, it’s all Grey, rainy and cold. Nice.

A good weather for these little guys:

Taking life like a bicycle ride

Once again, the week was full of activities and there was no time to write on here. We took a night in Stockholm to celebrate Ms birthday and for me, it felt like a whole week of vacation.

The weather has been wonderful and even if they threatened with rain yesterday and today, I can see now that they were wrong and the temperature is already high, to be Sweden. Crazy, when the rest of Europe is under the rain and floods.

We were invited for dinner yesterday and we took a bicycle ride there. It was quite long but really funny for us to discover the surroundings. We got lost of course ebut we finally found the house where they were waiting for us with a lovely dinner, that we ate outside.

We did rife back home along Fyrisån, which is the rivet running through Uppsala and the birds were all crazy, singing as hell. It was so beautiful, this picture taken with my phone cannot transcribe 10% of what we saw. Wonderful ride. Wonderful evening. Wonderful life.

This is now the beginning of a three days long weekend, this is Sweden national day on Monday. We have no plans and that is wonderful. I have at least ten books waiting for me to be readen, it will be enough! Have a Greta weekend!
