Found this really cute picture on my sister's facebook page (again.....) of Doris trying out her most exciting christmas gift. I have to better posting pics on facebook or here... but it is that damn computer at home. It refuses to get the internet connection working and the helpdesk is not helping. Anyone who knows of a computer wiz kid out there who wants to make a few bucks to get the crap working???? If so let me know.... I'm probably very good to negotiate price with at the moment - I just want the stuff to work!

I know I'm totally messing up the chronological order on this blog, but found this great picture(on my sister's facebook page) and if you hadn't already figured it out, it is V's 2nd Birthday which we celebrated @ M's parents place on Lilla Askerön, Orust on July 15 last summer.
How to better do it than with Grandpa Nils' strawberry cake? Well, I don't know......
I'm getting complaints I'm not updating as often as I should.... true... sorry..... I just don't seem to be able to make it happen as frequent as I would like. That bloody computer is still not working from home so I'm kind of depending on the pictures I get sent to me from friends and relatives and that I can find on facebook. But one day maybe we'll get it working and I can get back to some serious blogging!
Anyway what I was meaning to talk about was the julbord (Christmas smoergasbord) we had with Magnus' parents, Nils and Tomoko, at Sjömagasinet. Fantastic environment and food. I love the once a year julbord thing, but somehow I never seem to get pass the cold cut and fish section - then I'm completely full! Vendela enjoyed meatballs and sausages and some salmon - but mostly she dug into the chocolate and the other candy available at the dessert table. Heaven for any 2 ½ years old!

Friends of Capilmas choice.... if there still are any out there ?!:-) I got inspired getting started again when reading my friend, Charlotte's blog, which she recently started. She has moved to Hanoi, and tells everyday things about hers and her hubbie's life in Vitenam.
Sounds interesting? read more on: http://www.charlieinasia.blogspot.com/
Anyway, my life is totally back into normal routines, it's almost like the 2 years in Canada never happened, but one thing is constant and I guess the focus on this blog still will be Vendela:- ).
The internet connection home still suck, but this might be the carrot I need to get someone to fix it - Man, I feel inspired to write!..... which is surprising as the season and month of November is anything but inspiring!

As it has been so long since I posted stuff on the blog, and I wanted to share some photos with you from my going away party with the girls back in July. We had dinner at this great restaurant, which I unfortunately forgot the name of (if anyone reads this and remembers, please let me know) and after we joined Jo's friend at a private club for some drinks (awful ones, by the way) before heading out to Brant House for some clubbing. There of the look of my feet on the picture above:-)

Sorry folks for not keeping you posted with what's been happening in Sweden - but the simple explanation is that I've been disconnected from the cyberspace during the last couple of months ( staying at different places, no internet access and no camera (got stolen this summer)....BUT now we've moved back into our apartment, Internet is up & running and we bought a new camera yesterday - so let's BLOG!

M, V and Brett on the balcony. Brett and V is giving eachother a High Five!
Last Sunday, July 1, it was Canada Day, which is to compare with Swedish National Day or 4th of July. Brett and Linda had invited us over to their place for some BBQ and later on watching the fireworks at Ontario Place from their balcony. A very nice evening which went on til very late. Came home close to 2.30 am! We got started playing our music favouties at YouTube - amazing what you actually can find there.
Tip of the day; if you have not seen the movie Music & Lyrics and Hugh Grant as an 80's Ex-popstar, check out "POP goes my heart". It's on YouTube....
M & V in front of the CN Tower.
V in the front and back on the bench, resting while their kids go wild among the animals, are from left: Christel, Cia, Lena's oldest daughter (who I don't remember the name of.... shame on me) and Lena, who hosted the fika afterwards in their lovely house in Cabbagetown.
