Late as always, but what is my excuse?

Sorry! I’m hopeless at writing on a regular basis, but at least I turn up again, right?

I´ve had a warm summer, and rather miserable overall. Seems I moved in a flat with a neighbor from hell, a true party-animal who prefers to party in the middle of the night between 2-5.30. Yes, I have spoken to the landlord and I have spoken to her, but my conclusion is I will have to look for a new place. That will take some time, since the housing-situation in Stockholm is a bit mad. But I’m a woman on a mission!

Its a pity, but at least I have learned that I can live in a small space and that I really need some kind of outdoor living area with my flat.

For now I’m enjoying my writing-class and I have walking-distance to the school, so I can proudly sa that I have lost 5 pounds so far. Which was badly needed, especially since a high BMI is a risk factor where cove-19 is concerned.

I have some nice walks around here, so you will have endure photos of water and boats from time to time. Turned out behind this boat, on the other bank was a campsite for homeless people, so maybe not as idyllic as this picture seems. I haven’t seen one in years, but this is more suburbia than my previous lodgings. I realize that I have been living in yuppie-land pretty much…

Molly is getting old, and this summer we had to go to the vet. Turns out we seem to be in a symbiotic relationship, she also suffers from arthritis and overweight, so now we are both on a diet and she is on meds. She is 15 after all, so a bit older than me in cat-years.

These are such strange times for all of us, and still we move along trying to do the best we can with our lives. Son and I took a short staycation in a posh hotel, and a few city-walks, but we have been trying to social distancing as best we can. Sweden is now down to very low levels of cover-19, so I think our strategy was the right one for this very long run that we have.

In school we are doing most things live, but all tables in the classroom are positioned on a safe distance (we are only 16 students) and hand washing and alcohol-rubbing is mandatory and often. Because of generous regulations and the internet anyone with even a suspicion of symtoms stays at home, and partake of classes on teams or zoom. So far so good!

I will let you know more about my writing-course soon, and show you my very relaxed wardrobe in line with now being a cultural snob! 🙂 Thanks for visiting!

  1. What an awful shame about your neighbour, surely they must sleep sometime – daytime perhaps, Id be tempted to turn my music up loudly then and maybe go out for a walk while it drives her nuts… we are currently contemplating a move of house too – not sure where we will end up, maybe still in Scotland or perhaps just over the border in England, I really dont know, the husband however is a geomorphologist and used to dealing in geological time whereas Id prefer everything done yesterday, I dont expect him to do anything at any great speed therefore it is currently a little difficult. Cat is very beautiful – a very pretty face
