Hello World!

Hello World!

I’m back!

Don’t choke on your coffee!

I’m alive!

And my quill is at the ready!

After taking a break from blogging due to lack of time in May 2014, tonight, I had the sudden urge to write some more drivel, despite having even less time these days.

To be honest, I would’ve loved to have continued writing drivel all throughout 2014-2016, but life got in the way. We had the surprise baby and moved our family of five from Stockholm, Sweden to Sydney, Australia.

I’m working full-time, have a 2 + 4 + yr old, we are on the brink of major life change and it’s the busiest time of year. IT’S THE PERFECT TIME TO START A BLOG.

It was either that, or put away the laundry.

What’s been going on with us since 2014?

LouLouNot much. We moved to Sydney and live on the Northern Beaches. I’m currently working as a home-based Marketing Manager. I’ve discovered that I’m highly allergic to tomatoes, chilli and waffles.

The Swedish Husband: Not much. I allowed him to follow us to Sydney. He’s mainly been taking care of our 3 girls among other things.

BubbaNow an entirely delightful 6yr old who is loving life and Kindy.

The Flash: Our energetic 4yr old that exudes light and love.

The Surprise Baby: No longer a baby. A walking, talking, curly-haired ray of sunshine.

Every day they all show a little more sass, which we are hoping will one day help them run a country and not a gang in prison.

What can you expect more of?


The three sisters at the Three Sisters. Blue Mountains, 2016

More of the life and times of Lou, such as:

♥ The time I was involved in a murder in the south of Sweden.

♥ The hijinks that TSH and myself get up to.

♥ The reason I should just buy shares in Apple and be done with it.

♥ There’ll be more pictures of our children where you don’t get to see their faces.

♥ There’ll be me banging on about Sydney, Swedensugar and our worthless attempts at a zero waste life.

♥ And follow along as I ‘konmari‘ the hell out of my life in an attempt to ‘spark joy’.

There’ll be sarcasm, spelling mistakes and plenty more.

Hope to see you around!
