Well we’ve been home for a week now and while I do miss Crete it’s nice to be back.
I’ve been on my own with the girls this week. Rickard is back at work and will be this coming week too. I have a few ideas for stuff to do, but not a whole lot.
Tomorrow we need to arrange a gift certificate for my SIL and BIL who has invited us to celebrate their 40th birthdays on Saturday at their cabin/compound in the Bohuslän archipelago. We’ve been there twice before and it is an amazing place. I’m kind of looking forward to it. It will be a big thing I suppose and I don’t usually do well at big social occasions. I always feel out of place and uncomfortable.
But I suppose it will be alright. They are putting us up in one of the cabins on the grounds so we don’t have to stay at the island hostel. Which is nice.
We’ll drive up on Saturday morning with Rickard’s brother and his fiancée. They’re serving lunch at 1 pm and then the party starts in the afternoon/evening. We have to drive home soon after lunch on Sunday because Monday is Isabel’s birthday and we want to be home with her then.
The girls are staying with my parents so we have to be home in time to pick them up not too long after bedtime.
So this week we have to arrange for the BIL/SIL gift, gifts for Isabel, prepare for the party we’re having on Monday for Isabel and I will make her cake on Monday morning.
It’s supposed to be a nice week, weather-wise so I hope we can manage a visit to the beach as well.
We were in the Western Harbour today which is always fun. It’s a brand new neighbourhood that is still growing so there are always new buildings to look at and new coffee places to visit.
The flats there are horribly expensive and the weather is only nice 2-3 months a year, bearable another 1-2 months and the rest of the time it’s windy, cold and rainy so I’m not sure the location would be worth it. But I also wouldn’t mind finding out. It’s a lovely place on days like today.
I mean just look at that view!
