My first four days of my holiday is over, and I have only 32 more to go (yes, I KNOW! That is what a good union can do for you:)). So what have I been up to? Well…

First day out of 35 happy holi-days!! Let’s see what I can make out of them apart from sleeping and reading, which of course I need to do as well. Last year I travelled a lot, this year will be a stay-cation. But I am determined to actually explore, so I hope to bring you some interesting stories from places in and around Stockholm.

But all the new people, new environment, new rules and new job areas means I have been totally wasted in the evenings. The fact that Spring never turns up doesn´t help. Some extra D-vitamin might, I´m trying that now.

But I don´t want to leave the blog un-updated for too long, so I thought I´d share something with you that the Nordic Museum reminded me of. My love of doll´s houses!
