This Monday I met up Joel to go to BYN Crêperie & Ciderie, a place where they specialises in cider, good cider. But first we looked in some stores at Södermalm before we decided to walk an hour in the cold to the restaurant. It was freezing but beautiful.
Old town and Kungsholmen.
Between here and next picture, we ate a lot of good food and drank a lot of great cider. Took a drink at Springfellows and went home as it started to snow. These pictures are taken after I got of the bus close to my mother’s place.
I haven’t taken many photos while being in Stockholm but here are some christmasy ones.
This is outside my window, there wasn’t much snow when I came here, but frost everywhere. So pretty.
And my mother’s santa and weird decoration collection. Much of it is Santas that my siblings and I have done through the years.
So far I have met a lot of friends, eaten a lot of good food and just relaxed.
Marco has wanted us to go for karaoke for ages now so we decided to do it to celebrate good team work and as a goodbye party as we won’t see each other until next year. Sound so far away when you put it like that. We met up at Home Bar where we ate dinner and had some drinks before going to the studio where we said hi and then we arrived to the karaoke place around 22. After singing for two hours, our throats were sore and we went to the Howlin’ Wolf for some more drinks before heading home.
Grant and his best smile.
Marco and Grant with more genuine smiles.
“Take the damn photo so we can eat our dessert!” That look in Grant’s eyes…
On our way to the karaoke place.
Wherever you will go – The Calling
Next Sunday I’ll be in Stockholm after three months here in Glasgow. I feel excited in a way I didn’t think I’d be. Before when I was living in Karlskrona for three years I wasn’t that excited to go home to my parents for christmas, I guess it was because I could go anytime if I wanted so I didn’t think it would change this year. And mom, it isn’t that I wasn’t excited about seeing you before, I’m always excited to see you (still wants christmas presents..). I’ll be in Stockholm from the 21st December until 4th January, and will have to squeeze in meeting as many people as I can over those two weeks. So if you want to see me just send a message! I’ll get a temporary number to use when I’m in Stockholm so it will be easier both for me and others to contact me. More about that later when I know more.
Other than christmas plans, I can tell you that I presented my studio project last Tuesday and that it went great. The two weeks before examination was completely hysterical, was so stressed about the project and often worked all day and until midnight most nights. On Monday evening we finally printed out the three extra long A0:s for the presentation the day after. So. Much. Work. But now I can relax a bit and actually have some free time (what did I do with my free time before?). Next week on Tuesday everything will be presented to stakeholders, the Glasgow City Council and people from RTPI (Royal Town Planning Institute, it’s like the Swedish Association of Architects). It’s going to be exciting!
Also! We got a Ticket to Ride game at last, so everyone who want to play with us is welcome. Best game!
