Christmas Eve in Camberley

Christmas Eve was over way too quickly. I don’t think we have ever had as relaxing Christmas, there was absolutely no hurry whatsoever and we were ready with all the dinner preparation around 14.00 UK time. Staying true to the Swedish tradition, we watched “Kalle Anka” or Donald Duck over a bowl of rice pudding …

Our second herb garden

Our 2nd herb garden

As I have started to cook a lot of Italian recently, then I decided that to build an indoor herb garden,  instead of buying new batches of herbs every week.  I also added few roses in between to complete the space, as well as some multicolored candlelights hanging from the ceiling.   The herbs were …

At last we got a broadband at Chapel Pines and communicaations have been restored on more or less all the devices at our house.  There have been plenty of visitors over the past few weeks, first Charlotte´s parents came over for a week and were followed by Kristjan Atli, Berglind and Fanney which stayed with …

Manic Monday

Waking up with a guilty conscience is never good, especially on a monday morning, after delaying our Gym debut, we sure made up for it today with two sessions.  Swimming this morning at 6.30 and a mini after work training session where we were guided through all the Gym Equipment.  It is strange to admit …
