So, this week has been a tad exciting. I didn’t mention it last week but when I pressed publish on last week’s Sunday Sevens it was courtesy of the free WiFi on the plane I was on at 35,000 feet! Last Sunday I went to Sweden with Eldest on a super adventure….
Off we go
Last Sunday, we got up super early and drove to Malaga to catch a flight to Stockholm. Eldest has wanted to go for ages and this trip was a very special belated birthday present for him. We left Mr Postcard at home with the two youngest and ran away!
Obligatory sunset photo!
This was sunset over Stockholm last Sunday. The tower in the distance belongs to the City Hall, which is where the post-Nobel prize giving ceremony celebrations take place; a banquet and a ball are hosted there. Our hotel was very close to the Hall. The weather was a lot colder than what we left at home!
When in Rome… err Stockholm
You can’t go to Stockholm and not visit the ABBA museum can you?! It was fab, a trip down memory lane, with lots of wonderful ABBA tunes playing.
All that glitters
How’s that for bling? This is the Gold Hall inside the Stockholm City Hall. It’s a mind blowing place to visit. Completely covered in mosaic tiles – this room took just 2 years to complete!
Textiles & Swedish folk art
For some reason we saw an awful lot of crafts when we were visiting Stockholm, from dressmaking to hand made household items. I haven’t had the time lately to do much craft (aside from my regular sewing and painting class) and I’ve really missed it. I think this trip has given me the inspiration to get back to it.
Our last Swedish sunrise
Our trip was wonderful, we loved it so much and have already looked at ways to return to Sweden with the rest of the Postcard family. This photo was taken on Wednesday, our final morning, just before dashing off to the airport to catch our flight home. Thank you Stockholm! ( A post about our trip will follow as soon as I get the chance!)
We have a kitchen again!!
It’s not finished completely yet, but I’m thrilled that we have a fully functioning kitchen again after a month without one. Our first proper dinner (roast beef & Yorkshire puddings) are in the oven now – I can’t wait!
The last few days have been a little uninspiring for photos after our 3 nights in Sweden, so Sunday Sevens is a bit Sweden-heavy this week. I have a feeling next week will feel a little mundane after all our excitement, but at least we have a kitchen to cook in! Whatever you’re up to this week, I hope it’s a good one for you.
As always I’m linking with Natalie from Threads and Bobbins for this weekly blog series.
