Beginnings

ADF0DF88-E191-4D16-B1DC-00CF3144BF5BI went to my mum and dad’s house recently and I found my old diaries stored away in the attic.

The first and oldest diary is from 1986 (ahem) and the latest edition was in 2004.
I don’t really know why I stopped keeping a diary… I think I started getting “busy” and forgot to stop and reflect. I do think this word “busy” should be banned as we use all to liberally to anything.
But I digress. So here goes. Here is my first blog post.
I’m a Swede, living in London with my English husband. I’ve lived in the UK for 17 years, I spent a year and half in Spain with a year spent in Illinois, USA in between.
I’ve learned how to adapt and accept, how to incorporate my Scandinavian ways and tastes into my every day life and to generally go with the flow.
I write about my thoughts on life, our everyday journey and my loves. These are my family, design, all things Scandinavian, fashion, travel, travel, travel, fitness, food and gin. Always gin.
