A fast one from Rome

2012-04-10 — Mitt liv

It´s a love hate thing to be back in Rome again for the first time since our move to Sweden. It starts on the airport with the taxi drivers that tries to rip you off, those stinky airport toilets, smog and the traffic to get in to the centre… But then it got better and better with lunch under the sun at Piazza de Ricci with a nice plate or Spaghetti alle Vongole, wine, long walks, aperitif with friends at Salotto42, more wine, and to finish off in style, dinner at our favourite La Rosetta. Me and Damiano looked at each other and I knew that he was thinking the same ting I was….. what have we done, moving from this lovely place???!! Isn’t it strange that you have to leave something to really start to miss and appreciate it?! I think there is no perfect place to live, you kind of have to create your own happiness and anyhow Rome is just 2 and a half hours flight away.

    But soon, soon Malin, you´ll be sitting happy in your nice garden with your children running around safe, healthy and happy somewhere in the neighborhood.

    Back home and I must say it felt very positive to land at Copenhagen airport, borta bra men hemma bäst (var nu hemma egentligen är)?
    I can see my self sitting there in the garden sipping a nice warm tea hearing the kids in the background, hahha!

What a lovely long weekend! Yesterday while it was snowing and cold we had a great time at Malmö konsthall where they organise art craft for kids, an amazing space for small exited hands full of creativity! The kids loved it, for sure we will go back again soon.

Today we had a nice easter lunch with egghunt and games in the garden, you could actually feel that spring is on its way today with all the birdsong and spring flowers starting to come up!

Can´t wait to get into my new mintgreen Acne shorts and some summer sandals!!

Tomorrow I’m off to Rome… More spring for me!!!!

Easter mood

2012-04-07 — Mitt liv

Happy Easter!!!!!

Found this photo on one of my favourite blogg Lotta Agaton, what a great energy!!

This morning we woke up and it was snowing!!!! 6 year old Tiago asked me if it´s normal that it snows in spring time and what could I say.. We live in Sweden now honey, and here it can snow all year around!!

But the snow didn’t stop the kids from running out in the garden on egghunt in only pyjamas!!

Today we have been painting decorating and even if I’m not really in to easter decorations I found these photos on the blog It´s a House, super easy egg and easter decorations you can get from downloading Dingbat. Attach it to the wall with some washitape from teip shop.
Simple as it can be – nothing more advanced than a free dingbat called Birds of a feather, printer, scissors and glue.

If you want to give away something more than just a chocolate egg,

give away a chicken from Action Aid 

Organising a easter lunch for tomorrow, i´ll try to make something from Le parfait,

dosen´t this lemon meringue pie look super?!

Happy Easter everyone!!!!

One more day

2012-04-04 — Mitt liv

A week just swishes by and tomorrow we are off, back home to cold Sweden and Easter celebrations! This is the perfect getaway for families with small kids, you want some sea and sun but you don’t want to travel to the other side of our planet. It´s nice and relaxing to go to restaurants but not with small tired kids!  After a long day at the beach the little ones can have a early dinner and after 10 minuets of film they are out and we can have our grownup time with a glass of red on the terrazzo before we crash in bed as well! Not much glamour i’m afraid but very easy and cosy!

If someone want´s to rent our apartment here in Puerto Santiago don´t hesitate to contact me on my
