There IS enough room on this sidewalk for the both of us!

On this week’s episode of the Life in the Land of the Ice and Snow podcast, Steve, from England, and host of the podcast “The Experience Designers”, tells us how it is to pick up and move a family with older children to a different country, how he embraces the idea of “lagom” and how it ties into the Swedish drinking culture… maybe.

Best vending machine ever

Q: Why can’t we have this vending machine in Sweden?

A: Because it would make me very unhealthy in a short time. It’s not good for me to have easy access to Ben&Jerry’s ice cream.

Crumpets and Cockfosters!

My husband and I just got back from a short weekend trip to London. For anyone who read my book, you will be delighted to know I was able to ride the tube going in the direction of “Cockfosters” (and still had to smile every time), and I actually saw a crumpet for the first time! I’ve honestly never had any idea what a crumpet looks like, but according to the coffee shop we went to, this is it:

Kids activities getting way too expensive

Our son is in a choir.  Today we got a letter regarding the choir outfits the children must wear while performing.  It says that they must wear black slacks (not jeans) and black dress shoes (not gym shoes).  Then it goes on to say that if you happen to be in London, there are some good deals at Marks & Spencer on these items.

I’m beginning to think the other kids in this choir may have a bit more money than us.

“Oh honey, Johnny needs new slacks.  I’m going to run to London this weekend for some shopping.”

Can you tell that clothes are way too expensive in Stockholm?
