But why??

2 Comments Typically Aussie

Just read that under a limited time of 12 weeks (that started last week) you’ll be able to buy chips flavoured with Vegemite. My only question is WHY? Why ruin a beautiful thing like chips with an awful flavour like Vegemite. 😉 But I guess the Aussies disagree given that 22 million jars of the yeast spread is sold each year. Has anyone Down Under tasted them and can give us a review?


Only at a Coles store near you for a limited time

Eftersom jag Àr lite arbetsskadad (jobbar ju med belysning) och lite av en julnörd sÄ fÄngade nyheten om Stockholms storsatsning StockholmsJul min uppmÀrksamhet. MÄlet med ljusprojektet Àr att ska skapa en vacker och trygg julstÀmning och förhoppningen Àr naturligtvis att den ska locka till sig fler besökare till huvudstaden och bli Skandinaviens frÀmsta juldestination.


Den 20 november 2011 invigs StockholmsJul dÄ 30 gator och platser i Stockholm kommer att dekoreras med julbelysning. All belysning kommer att bestÄ av miljövÀnligt material och energisnÄl LED-teknik och för att fÄ en sÄ miljövÀnlig julbelysning som möjligt kommer belysningen Àven vara nedslÀckt pÄ dagen.

Being my birthday this week and all I couldn’t stop myself from taking yet another trip down the famous memory lane. Two year’s ago my birthday was spent on a sailboat outside Airlie Beach around the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland. I must say I’ve had worse birthdays. 🙂

Chocolate lover?

No Comments Sverige

Just want to share a little tip to all chocolate lovers that happens to be in or around Göteborg 21-23 of October when this year’s Chocolate festival takes place. At the festival you get the chance to learn more about chocolate and it’s history and join tastings and seminars (some in English but most of them in Swedish though).

Missing you

I miss him

No Comments Sverige


I have a bit of a dilemma. Pollux is still at my dad’s and all though I really want him back I’m not sure it’s the right decision. I’ve looked around at different dog care centres but they’re all really expensive. You have to pay between 2600-3000 SEK per month to keep your dog there every day. That’s more expensive then having your child in daycare! I’ve also looked around to see if I can find a private dog watcher that could take him for walks while I’m at work but so far no luck. I mean I don’t want to go around half the city in the morning to drop him off before work for example, it has to be at least somewhat convenient.  I’ve been promised that I can keep him with me in the office but then he’ll have to stay under my desk all day, how much fun is that?

At dad’s he gets lots of attention and several nice walks every day, but he’s not the same dog when he’s with dad as when he’s home. So maybe you can understand my dilemma. Perhaps I’m egoistic if I bring him to Göteborg. But on the other hand he’s mine, he’s my baby, part of the family and I miss him. :/

I must have been a good sister

No Comments Sverige

Since my siblings gave me such nice birthday gifts. 😉 I got a nice red Eva Solo Smiley bowl from my sister and Stefan and a metal tin for my muesli that makes you happy in the morning from my brother and Linda.


Ended up going out to dinner too on my birthday at a restaurant (just around the corner from where I live) so it ended up being a pretty good day after all. 🙂

I’m addicted

I admit it, I’m a little bit addicted to Wordfeud. If you want to me to kick your arse (or possibly see my arse getting kicked), look up Swaussie and invite me to a game in either Swedish or English.

I love my pressie

4 Comments Sverige

Since it happens to be my birthday today (happy birthday to me!) I just want to share with you my birthday pressie I got from Simon. I actually opened it on Sunday because he’s not here today to celebrate with me. He did very well and I really love my Octopus owl handbag. Ok, I might have pointed out that I liked it several weeks ago but still, lots of brownie points for Simon.
