We’ve finally moved, unpacked all our boxes, put up xmas decorations and even celebrated lucia with almond filled saffron buns, glögg (the Swedish version of glühwein) and listening to the lucia choir on tv early in the morning.
The new flat is amazing! We have a sofa now, and an expensive teak coffee table from Denmark (which was given to me months ago). The kitchen is fairly large and has enough cupboard space for all my little gadgets. Even though I’ve been ill lately I’ve been enjoying spending time in there, cooking up soup and making bread for us to eat. The cats love the big space they have now, and the little spots they’ve found for napping and keeping an eye on the neighbourhood.
In just over a week we’re having our traditional xmas buffet here (this will be the second time, thus creating a tradition right now!) and I’m trying to plan out our food. I have a long list of possible options but won’t have the time to make ALL of it. Hopefully everyone will be happy with the food and we’ll have a good time. I’ll be doing most of the cooking on Friday and then some more after work on Saturday and Sunday. Monday the 22nd we’ll both be panicking about finishing up the last little things but I’ll enjoy it immensely. I love xmas time!
