I don't read much at all these days staying at home full time with the 1 year old and working more that half time at the same time. My blogroll contains all my reading at the moment. So in stead of taking a picture of something I don't read I thought I'd share this wonderful blog in stead with you.

Not for the bed jumping type of person.

I was brought up in the western Swedish archipelago. Next to us lived my grandparents and most of my aunt and uncles. My cousins and I spent our childhood running around in the woods and mountains and we did the swimming most people would need a lifetime for during the summer holidays. Here I am in the outer archipelago that we used to travel around in a sailing boat my father built.

My youngest kid falls asleep in the pram and sleeps some 2-3 hours outside the house every day. Might sound like a dream. Except this winter we've had all the snow you had in Europe last year concentrated to Iceland and more. And the winds have been literally turning the pram 180°on the street corners. A home picked sea bird duvet does the trick. I use it inside the sleeping bag. But my fingers go numb sitting by the open window with hail and snow flying around the room.

Seems the kitchen in this post had an Icelandic relative.


Random picture from my favourite country. Old ruin below the mountain.

That you can make snowmen also in the summer. This picture is taken on the Myrdalsjökull glacier by the way located on top of the of the overdue Katla volcano media was telling you all about. (Big sister of the smaller Eyjafjallajökull volcano that disrupted the flights in Europe.) We used to drive over it every summer with the kids.

You probably know by know I have a weakens for old vintage pastel colored kitchens. Then it doesn't get much better than this. Designer Bea Szenfeld's apartment that is now for sale if you're looking for an apartment in the Swedish capital area.


Sorry I missed the challenge yesterday. I was working a 12 hour shift. This outfit was actually mine a couple of years back.

Porridge with banana or muesli. In Iceland most babies from the age of 6 months and on drink cow milk designed for babies with added iron and vitamins. From the same age they usually get skyr that is is an Icelandic cultured dairy product similar to strained yoghurt. That is very different from how babies get to try out foods in Sweden I feel, where milk products are almost being avoided.
