The birthday celebration this weekend went well. Simon had worked extremely hard the days I was gone working in Stockholm and the apartment looked great (and smelled clean) when I got home late Friday night. It was a bit of grand opening of the new kitchen this weekend since the birthday dinner on the Saturday was basically the first real meal we’ve cooked in the new kitchen. I will post a before and after blog post soon too so you can see the finished result. The transformation is total.
I got some more nice pressies that I want to show you too while I’m at it. I got a very cool Diesel watch from Simon. From Bo I got two beautiful shade candle holders (skuggljusstakar) by Ernst Kirchsteiger and from my siblings with partners I got lots of nice coffees and teas plus the clock that I wanted from Ellos (but it want arrive until next month). I also got some money so I’ll save up some more and buy myself a tripod and an external flash for my camera too.
But the birthday was of course not only about the physical gifts. It was a big gift to be able to celebrate the day with the whole family, it’s not very often that we all see each other so that was a treat in itself. But now we’re truly looking forward to a weekend without kitchen renovations, trips or visitors (no offence). Nothing planned so far. I can’t wait – bring on the weekend!
