Happy Halloween!

Do we celebrate Halloween in Australia?

Well, the stores are trying very hard to promote Halloween that's for sure.

Take a look at our spooky pix here!

It was good fun and the kids enjoyed it.
This year we couldn't find a Halloween house at the supermarket...

A mixture of photos from our local store BigW

Cool cupcake cases


Trick or Treat baskets

Hope you all have a fantastic Halloween!

Christmas at the shops

I saw the first signs of Christmas decor at the shops in mid-September...


Christmas mugs, anyone?



If you love Christmas as much as I do and want more,
please stop by my Christmas blog,

It's written in Swedish, 
but there is a handy translation button 
on the right-hand side.

A Day in mid - August...

It was a while back...

Our pergola was on its way down... and had been for quite some time.

We had been lucky it hadn't crashed down onto us...

It was a close call once,
Jonah was little and we've all just come home from the shops and
hubby had rushed off to work.
I heard a HUGE bang and thought Jonah pulled down something heavy 
onto the floor. I panicked - big time!

Nothing had happened inside, Jonah was safe. I peeked through the front door.
A part of the pergola had fallen down where we park our car 
- 40 mins earlier we had been standing there!!
Our Guardian Angels definitely looked after us that day.

Hubby spent a couple of hours removing the timber.

Say bye bye to the ugly old timber...

And this is the finished result:

So bright and airy

I don't miss it one single bit...

Now I'm looking forward to our future project of adding a beautiful deck at the front.
Stay tuned...

Pupil Free Day

Yesterday was a Pupil Free Day at our son's school.
We were able to spend some time 
in the park together as a family,
before it was time for daddy to go to work.

Scandinavian Festival in Brisbane

A few weeks ago we attended the Scandinavian Festival in Brisbane. The occasion was to celebrate The Danish Club's 140th year as a club in Brisbane. Back in the day it was a club for all Scandinavians.

A whole street was blocked off due to this festival and heaps of stands with food, craft and various small and big Scandinavian businesses. A great day in the sun! It was a really hot day...
