 When we arrived in the heart of the country in Sweden I felt I had discovered heaven.  Now I realised why my son could leave New Zealand and live somewhere else (although obviously his wonderful partner had something to do with it too!)
The dark clouds threatened, gathered, came over, tipped it down, cleared away, and the warm sun came out and ... it was midsummer eve and I was suddenly whirled up into the most important and amazing big special celebration of the year here - Swedish Midsommar!

My lovely wee bedroom

  1. What a beautiful place. No wonder your son and his partner like it there.

  2. It is Emma! And the sky is clear and clean. (welcome to TLVD!)

  3. Looks like heaven without the mountains.

    1. Are there mountains in heaven Geeb?
