Frankfurt…

20140919-165416-60856319.jpgLeaving OR Tambo yesterday. I love that airport especially the welcoming circle. It is truly a rainbow nation.

The night was ok, extremely uncomfortable but I saw a great movie, Chef. It’s a pure luxury to travel on our own, pure luxury!

20140919-165625-60985725.jpgWaiting for our flight in Frankfurt and using the freeeee Internet, eating a panini and watching a A380 dock. Truly a big airplane. Thinking about the internship I got at Airbus working on the propulsion system. As an engineer I should have been jumping with joy, instead I chose L’Oréal & Lancôme, every girls dream…or maybe just mine.

On the road again…

But this time without kids. I miss them already but I’m so looking forward to a couple of nights with undisturbed sleep…and the wedding of course.

This is what I’m wearing…you’ll see the full outfit on Saturday. I found it at Egality in Parkhurst.

It feels so strange to sit on an aeroplane and not focus on, bottles, toys, iPads, food, diapers. I will be able to watch a movie!!!! Yeay!!! And next to me is my husband. We can pretend we are on our honeymoon again…double yeay!!!

Weekend yeay!

So I might have to denounce my handywoman title. I just had an electrician here to help me out with the light for the livingroom ceiling. Took him two minutes…

I just don’t like electricity! But I asked him some basic question (my teacher in theoretical electronics would tear his hair). Now I know exactly how to do it (again).

Starting the weekend with some crazy flowers.

Handywoman part II

Back at school, yeay! Maybe more yeay for me than for V. But he is very proud when I pick him up. Mom – I go to school. Big smile.

Summer has come and it is absolutely amazing. The house is warm in the morning and you don’t have to sit with you outdoor jacket at the dinner table.

We have more or less unpacked everything. TV is installed, Internet up and running and tomorrow the electrician comes to fix the last light. I’m spending my afternoon at the hardware store on 4th. They must think I’m hitting on someone. Everyday I come with my phone to show them pictures of what I need. As I don’t know the names.

Today I got this, can you guess what it is?

Handywoman

I’m a handywoman!
I put up our TV on the wall, and may I also add – in the most effective way possible. I took tape and made a fake TV on the wall so I could see exactly what it would look like.

Then I drilled six perfect holes into the hard concrete wall…perfection is my middle name!

20140908-225622-82582081.jpg
And the result, well perfect of course!

I also bought a 3m ladder and a lawnmower…macho

Time

So when am I supposed to have time to write? This is crazy! This is the first moment I have since we came down (more or less), and now I have no clue what to write about.

We are settling in really good, totally in love with the new house. I had no idea a house could change your mood. I just feel much happier in general, so does F. Never ever will I underestimate a well planed house.

We went to Pretoria yday to vote. Discussing different options in the car on the way. It was hard this time, I tried to read up and watch the debates on SVT PLAY but I’m not convinced. The only thing I was convinced of was that I had to vote.

Well let the best man/woman win…

Back again

20140828-231205-83525976.jpgSorry, my blog has been down for a while, missed a payment. But I have been on vacation so it doesn’t matter right?

Had a great vacation in Sweden. Truly amazing, I absolutely love coming back seeing my tribe. Well it is my tribe, my family. I feel a very strong connection, always have. When I see my mom, dad and sister, I can’t help it, I totally understand why I am who I am…I love it.

This is a short video of how the summer in Fkil was.

Sweden here we come…

So I couldn’t write anything about my swede trip as it was a surprise for my mom. But now, we are finally here. The flying circus has landed…

Traveling with two kids, two boys…well let’s just say it is not super easy. I’ll tell u all about it in another post

After 14 hours we touched Swedish soil, Andrea for the first time in his life. Felt very special. Now we are settling slowly. Vittorio went to bed 8:30 even though the sun was still shining. Andrea was out at 7. We all woke up at 5:30 this morning by Vittorio who was looking for his dinosaur.

Today we spent the day at the beach. So missing F, he would have loved it. Just crossing fingers that the weather will stay for a bit longer.
