For the very first time I’m alone in our house. (All my boys went camping including cousin Melker!) I’m sitting here in the kitchen listening to Ed Sheeran and just enjoying some me time. After all light summer nights I think the darker August evenings are so cozy. Soon another two of Eddie-Bo and Oliver’s cousins are arriving. And I have to admit I’m happy to not sleep alone in the house… The music all of the sudden stopped and I heard some noise… I’m not normally afraid of being alone, but I had a mouse in the house the other the night that scared the sh.t out of me, haha!
A quick hello from the kitchen in Småland. On the shelfs lots of favorites from Mateus that I started to collect about six years ago. And this is my first kitchen I designed ten years ago, still love it!
Cheers my American friends!! I hope you all are having a great independence day. I’m now feeling a bit “homesick” after a FaceTime sesh with our best American friends Jana and Marc, who have invaded our house and pool ;)
Only celebration here is a glass of Minuty rosé wine!
We are slowly moving in to the main house. It’s not styled, not all done, still very empty, but we are getting there! I’m beyond happy about our new kitchen! (And I feel it deserves better pictures, but I was in a rush).
What a productive day. Started with a meeting with our contractor. After that I went into town (Linkoping) by myself, and in two hours I bought pots, pans, coffee maker, knifes and other things you can’t live without in a kitchen! I found showers for a bathroom and a faucet for the laundry, I picked up carpet samples, did some speed shopping at my favorite interior design store Esq, and picked out tile for a bathroom. I knew what I was looking for, and it happened to be right inside the door. That decision took me about 10 seconds, haha, they told me that was a record :)
In the afternoon we left our new house and drove to our other house in Smaland. It feels so nice and relaxing to be here where everything is done! The kids were also happy to see their toys and Eddie-Bo ran from the car to the sports court and started to play street hockey!
While the kids played my amazing mother in law came over, and gave me reflexology, how nice?! And it was well needed for my achy feet, I haven’t been still since… Miami I think :)
The house is finally all done!!
I’m so happy about that, but I’m mad at the weather. I was planning to take photos yesterday, but it was so dark. And today it’s even worse and rainy!! But I did my best.
And this is pictures from before:
The wall is now gone between the kitchen and the old dining room. That made the kitchen much bigger plus I made a mud hall (groventre) instead of keeping the dining room.
More to come!!
The house will be on the market tomorrow!
Easter decoration! Love my new eggs that was a gift from Sweden (will update from where when I know…) We just got home from an Egg hunt and a meeting with Easter Bunny :) Ans the weather is amazing, so we been outside all day long, love it!!
Now it’s time for me to get ready for the last visit to the Joe! A big good bye party is waiting after the game, plus a party for our friend Henrik Zetterberg that will play his 1000 game tonight, how cool!! And oh my, it was so awesome to watch Eddie-Bo play last night, yes I cried!! He says he scored, but I need to look at the review, it was a lot of sticks involved in that moment :)
Have a wonderful Sunday peeps!!
