It seem to be a one track theme here lately, most posts being about barbecues in one way or the other . We found a barbecue at Bauhaus this weekend called Melbourne. ūüôā Read more

At the vet

No Comments Sverige

I just dropped off Pollux at the vet to get his teeth cleaned. He has quite a bit of calculus (in Swedish tandsten). Read more

Beautiful Saturday

2 Comments Sverige

It was a beautiful spring day yesterday. The sun was out, it was around 10 degrees and the sky was blue. We took a long walk in the nice weather in the morning and then went to my brother’s and Linda’s for a lunch BBQ.

Like a Swede

No Comments Typically Swedish

This photo has been around Facebook the last week but¬† I have to post it here too. Yes, it’s exaggerative but still it’s a little bit true which makes it funny,¬† even for me as a Swede.

It’s a princess!

1 Comment Sverige

The news that is all over the media today in Sweden is of course the royal birth.¬† Prince Daniel held a press conference where he announced that his and Crown Princess Victoria’s daughter was born at 4.26am this morning.¬† Big royal media frenzy to be expected.

The name of the little Princess, Sweden’s future Queen, will according to tradition, be announced tomorrow by HM the King.¬† What do you think her name will be? I think it has to be a classic Swedish name and she’ll have a traditional royal name like Ingrid or Desire√© at least as¬† a middle name.

The Swaussie blog has existed since June 2010 but I’ve been blogging in different blogs since 2007.¬† I’ve been loyal to since the start but I feel like I’ve outgrown the site and it is time for a change so therefore I’m trying something new. We now have our own domain and we now run the blog on WordPress instead. The old Swaussie blog has been transferred here so you’ll still be able to find our old posts in the archive. I’ll keep tweaking the design until I’m happy, so bare with me if the blog looks like a construction site until I’m done.
