Home away from home






Hej! How are you? We came back from a week away in Stockholm a few days ago; it was great to see my family again and for Oomoo to reacquaint himself with everyone. I took such random pictures whilst we were there and I'm not really sure how I'll group them... Anyway, I thought I'd start with these. They're little details from my godfather's flat which is crammed full of weird and wonderful things. See that orange porcelain cat? When I was a kid there was a neighbour in the apartment block opposite who had a cat, and I'd pretend the orange cat was a real cat by holding it in my arms and stroking it. Somehow I don't think I fooled anyone.

  6. charlyn w: yay - I'm not alone ;)

    emma: ja det är jag på bilden - mamma tog den... T har sån tur att få ha dig att leka med, det är inte alla vuxna som ger sig in i det helhjärtat. sthlm var hett! vi var oftast alldeles för varmt klädda; jag hade ingen koll på vädret (inget tv-tittande och inget internet). puh!
