Learner’s permit

No Comments Driving license (Sweden), Move to Sweden

Something went quick, for a change. Simon received a letter from Transportstyrelsen today, his learner’s permit. He did the eye examination on Monday last week at the driving school and sent in the certificate on Tuesday or Wednesday. So instead of taking up to 6 weeks as he was told he got it in just one week. Nice when you (occasionally) get positively surprised.

Many thoughts

7 Comments Move to Australia

I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again, it’s not always easy to date someone from another country. As Simon is struggling a bit here in Sweden and doesn’t really see himself living here in the long run (at least not at this stage) the discussion of a move to Australia is ongoing. Of course there are many thoughts running through my head when it comes to this. I love Australia (but I love Sweden too) and I really enjoyed living there during the 6 months that I did. But moving there now would be different, more permanent and at the same time as it’s would be an adventure, it would also be a bit scary. Read more

Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle of Roxette.

The Swedish pop duo Roxette is doing an Australia tour next year and the tickets go on sale on Monday August 29. Roxette last toured Australia back in 1995 on their Crash! Boom! Bang! world tour. This time they were originally  going to do a on off show but due to demand from the fans they’ve now extended it to a full Australia tour and also included a visit to New Zealand. The tour will take place in Februray and the cities they’ll be playing in are Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. For exact tour dates have a look HERE. Read more

Something I know Simon is really missing over here in Sweden is Fish’n’Chips so I’m anticipating we’ll be having that both one and two times. (Yes, we’re still on the food and drink theme here.)

Found a cool looking PB brush today in the shape of sticky tape. If you wish to download it (for free) you can do it HERE.

I miss you Pollux, can’t wait to have you back home!

It’s the arrival of this year’s IKEA catalogue. Perfect read for me being home curing my headache. 🙂

Not a great start to the week

2 Comments Sverige

We had a nice afternoon yesterday sitting in a beer tent looking at people, drinking beer, enjoying the sun, eating and listening to some music during the last day of Kulturkalaset (the Gothenburg Culture Festival). I had started to feel a headache sneaking in on me earlier during the day which I had ignored thinking it would go away. I was very wrong, it only got worse.

I don’t think I ever had a headache like the one I had last night before plus I felt nauseous too (ended up throwing up). My guess is that it was a migrane attack I had. 🙁 So today I’ve spent the day home from work resting and trying to get rid of the headache which hangs around like a leech. So far no luck, it’s a lot better than last night but still not good.
