We’ve done all things Scandi – eaten weeds, meatballs and chilli liquorice .Wherever possible embraced the Hygge ( could so easily have been arrested ,especially on The T.Bana ) .
I thought Stockholm was amazing , so beautiful .
We rode the ocean waves to Fjaderholmarna and Djurgarden . Saw a photographic exhibition at 1 in the morning , walked the bridges ( not to be mistaken with THE bridge ) . Strolled the aisles of the Systembolaget . Ate weird and wonderful stuff which was cooked at odd temperatures . Gawped at their style . Was impressed with their footwear- all women wear fabulous flat shoes.
But the best bit was being with the fam .
We celebrated Richard’s 68th Birthday at Sophienholm. We barbecued at their summer house ( a bit like The Royals ) . We went to my favourite art gallery in the world, Louisiana ,and saw a brilliant William Kentridge exhibition. We walked, talked, played Scrabble ( in English , can’t cope with all those J’s and an O with a line through it ) , ate communally at Absalom Church , I had a facial , courtesy of my niece ,Victoria , remembered Jane on the 16th anniversary of her death and fell in love ,with the newest member of the family , Elvis .
Missing them all like crazy now .
