Högt spel – Gösta Unefäldt

Last reading from the library. It was a tip from the library people, but I am not really sure why it was so. That’s a bit incomplete btw at the library they tip about a lots of books, but you don’t know why just these books are enlighten. I would like to have a reason, or a theme, or at least a little explanation/word which would hint.

Anyway, “högt spel” was a criminal novel, taking place in west Sweden. Everything was just so predictable that I got tired of it pretty but I read it until the end. Why? Because there were some strange words in it, a mix of norwegian and swedish somehow. I learn some new vocabulary.

Seven weeks

Seven weeks ago, our family went through a big transformation. We became 3. I still don’t realize that we have this little girl in our life. The nights are better, the days never the same and Z is growing fast. She smiles and “talks” and it’s funny to be around when she is in a good mood. When the evenings come, it’s more a tired little girl that we have at home and it’s not always easy to understand what she wants. Somehow, we manage it. And the sweetest is: when she eats, she holds one of our fingers.

What I also like is that we still have our habbits, like friday bubbles and I never met so much people in Uppsala than I do now. It’s almost too much sometimes, but really nice! We moved here 15 months ago and don’t know many people, but Z is opening doors for us. I also love the family we became, I love how she smiles at M when he comes back from work.

I’ve been using her hours of sleep during the days to pick up my old project “Stories” and it is fun to write, even if it’s not very good. By the way, leave me some comments to make me improve my writing, I would appreciate it!

The so called “barnvagnspromenader”

First day at home without M. It was busy, strange enough. Busy with a lots of unusual activities for me. Sleep for Z, food for Z, change diapers for Z, sleep for Z, food for me, training for me, shower for me, food for Z and this on repeat. Well, not the training part for me, I’m not that ambitious!

Around noon, it was a sleep time for Z and the sun was shining, so I took myself out for a walk with the stroller (and Z in it of course). I hate to take walk if it’s not to walk to a goal. But since it was not sure the sun would show itself later, I decided it was a good idea. I now enter the category “walkers with vehicle”. To drive a stroller almost requires some kind of driving licence, not for the rules, but for the driving part. I miss blinkers and stop lights. To cohabitate with others walkers and bicycles is not easy for me, I cannot make quick moves (yet) so I would like to inform my co-users of my planned moves with blinkers when I want to turn and stop lights when I have to check if Z is still alive in the stroller. I check about every 10 meters. This is strange how you soooo want her to sleep at some time of the day (like in the middle of the night) but how you want to see her showing big life signs at others (like on a walk in the big world outside).

We made it anyway. It was good both for her and for me to get some sun. And it felt like the spring is on its way. Too soon to believe it though.

Posters 

I’ve been drawing some animals and made posters of them. The printed version came at home today, and I have to day that I’m pretty happy with the result. The picture bellow is not nice to the colors and the details but it’s how I planned them to become. 

Good boost to my creative spirit!
