Weekends in Småland

It’s some time in July. I’m hiding (?) behind a branch. The rain boots are on, the ones I bought the screwy weather day in Stockholm a couple of months earlier. And the romantic dress of course. In one of the bedrooms romantic lace cloths are spread over the floor. And in the romantic living room someone just swept the floor. In the evening we cook pancakes on the rustic, romantic AGA stove, where one of my Urban Outfitters kitchen towels is hanging. About seven months later I sit in my apartment in Gothenburg, a cold and dark Mars evening, sobbing in the same kitchen towel, dreaming of summer days and weekends in Småland. Cheers.

    I feel exactly the same at the moment! We want to go to our Småland house so much – but it’s still a little too cold for the little kids, so we’ll wait until Easter…

    this might cheer you up Elisabeth……next week in Melbourne we will have 3 days in a row of searing heat 35, 36 and 37 degrees. It would be vitamin D overload. I know how you feel Im whimpering at the thought of the heat. I would love an in between place that had proper seasons and no extreme weather patterns.

    It wont be long now you will be there again soon :)

  17. Elisabeth / Fine Little Day says:

    Oh that sounds sweaty Helen. Indeed proper seasons and proper temperatures are preferred ;)
