Wonderful weekend in Nyon

Its only beginning of May, but it feels more like summer.  This weekend we have enjoyed fantastic weather with the temperature going close to 30 degrees.  We have certainly tried to enjoy the weather having taken walks for the majority of the weekend.  On Saturday morning we took our regular trip to the market and…

The Silver lining …

After suffering for the last 5 days from the worst cold I’ve ever had, things finally started to look up this afternoon.  So, this afternoon we decided to go outside as when it is 24 degrees warm with the sun shining it really doesn´t matter whether you are inside or outside. So we decided to…

Kristjan’s confirmation

On the last day of Easters, Kristjan Atli went through the rite of the Confirmation.  He had been preparing for this day the whole winter as most of the teenagers do usually during these years.  As always he did extremely well and made the old man proud, I just can´t believe how fast he is…

False start …

Oh well, sometimes things are not as straightforward as they seem, especially dealing with Frenchmen.  Once we were about to sign the rental contract we realized that the relocation advisor was trying us to sign a contract which stated that no pets were allowed in the apartment.  They did not seem to be too worried…

Flowers all around …

Today is Charlotte´s birthday. We celebrated today by going to a fantastic Sushi restaurant called Yashin Sushi and Bar in Kensington, London.

We had therefore prepared ourselves well, not only…

Day out in London

After spending 2 days taking it easy at home we decided to take the train up to London and stretch our legs a little bit.  Fanney was very excited to take the train as she had only been on a train once before and looked excitedly out of the window the whole time.  As Max…

Christmas with the kids

Not everyone get the chance to celebrate two Christmas Eves but this year we were so fortunate to have the children with us from the 27th to the 2nd in January. Therefore we decided to allow them to have a second Christmas Eve on the 27th and this one started with a blast. Around 2…

Christmas Day

Yesterday was again symbolized by extreme relaxation. We slept in and Max didn’t get his morning walk until 9.30 which was unusually late. Breakfast was late both due to the fact that we were completely full from the day before and that we slept in late 😉 We started to prepare for the traditional Swedish…
