OP shop finds

Spotted two Christmas books at our local OP shop when I was there the other day. It's been ages since I did any shopping there. I think the last time was in February when my mum was visiting from Sweden and almost on her way back home. Jeez, such a long time ago... Time flies with kids, school - and life! 

I always keep an eye out for good cookbooks, especially Christmas books. I know I have too many already, but I can't resist a really good bargain... Are you running out of shelf space too? 

These books will be perfect if I decide to celebrate Christmas in July!

Enjoy your day☺

Winter Holiday Playdate

It's the first real day of the Winter holidays and we went to a good friend's house for the day. We had a wonderful time. All the kids played nicely - and us mums too... lol

A lot of friends...
My two, my friend's three and two extra kids.
Imagine having seven kids at the table - at all times!
It's enough with two, I think.

Big smiles when it was dessert time ☺

The three friends.
They all go to the same Prep class.

The boys were busy playing games.

Some Wii-dancing... ☺

More dancing!
Ah, the energy these girls have...

The boys were being creative.

My friend's husband made us coffee.
So scrumptious!
A perfect ending of a perfect day ☺

Happy 47th birthday, Grant!

 Blowing out the candles...

... is a family affair!

Peaceful morning

Sunday morning.


The kids are sleeping and I have some time to myself.

Today is my hubby's birthday
so I'd better go and start making the cake.

Have a great Sunday everyone♥

Almost Swedish Midsummer

It's getting closer to the Swedish Midsummer weekend. Only three days until we celebrate it here in Brisbane - in the middle of our Winter. The Swedes back home will celebrate Midsummer Eve on Friday.

I have started to decorate a bit...

Love the blue and yellow!

The Swedish National Costume - so bright and beautiful!

Looking forward sharing my Midsummer celebration with you all.
Stay tuned ☺
