Well as the temperature in Stockholm has been dropping, the weather in Sydney has been rising. I’m sure you have seen on the news that for a large part of this week, Sydney has been burning, with bushfires starting up all over. It’s so scary what a gust of wind can do. And by gust, I mean 100 k winds that were ripping through the bushland, mainly in the beautiful Blue Mountains. And it’s only spring. Lives and over 200 houses have been lost, it’s been pretty horrific.
Ho hum, it so strange to see this all play out on the news…
But well yes anyway….on a cheerier note, the kids and TSH have gone to Spain! (I’m still in Stockholm going to work, who thought of that plan?) So I was up at 5.30am helping to get them ready and to push them all onto the plane. They are going down there to celebrate one of TSH’s best friends 40th. About 30 + people are turning up for a few days of sunshine, fun and a drop of Spanish wine I’m sure.
So, I’ve got 5 days to myself so this 21 week pregnant chick is going to go wild! I’m meeting friends tomorrow night for dinner, then I’m planning on getting a few things done around the house that I never have the time to do, whilst the kids are away. Sleep. Sound sleep.
Here’s a few sweet things for your soul from around the web:
♥ One of the best attitude‘s towards the fires I’ve seen. I would have been thinking the exact same thing.
♥ I loved these pictures of the world’s most beautiful libraries!
♥ And the above picture from National Geographic reminded me I want to by this book for my daughter. It features 150 birdsongs from Sweden. Getting my Xmas shopping in early.
♥ Start your day off with an ‘awwww’. These baby sibling pics are just too cute.
Will your weekend plans be the same as mine? Containing a cup of tea, a big bed and not much else?
