Oh my, four weeks have passed, a month, already!!
What has happened so far?
Besides the first very intensive week we're now spending most of our time down at the beach, at the gym and taking big decisions about what food we will cook.

We're also in the middle of house hunting, been to a few properties, nothing we've decided to apply for but it keeps us busy.
Tom got a job offer and decided to take it so he's now back in to banking.
I've still got some time to go until studies but trying to read it all through, got all tools I'll need for it, IT'S NOT CHEAP, that's for sure.

Last Saturday we spent at Bondi bowls to celebrate Rosie's 25th. DREAM!
Sunny day, barefoot bowling, pimm's, heaps of aperol and great people.

Went to our favourite place in manly the other day, FIKA Swedish kitchen. They've got heaps of Swedish goodies. Beside a big menu of Swedish dishes and drinks they sell swedens most traditional things such as gevalia coffee, Kalles caviar, wasa crispbread, Candies, marabou, norrlands guld beer and lots more. I love it' And for a sugar addict as myself there's possible to order Swedish princess cake, Swedish kladdkaka, saffron buns and even Semla!! What can I say, the ones who knows me knows my excitement!!

Caught up with some friends on Friday for a few more beers than we thought, back at Stayne In Manly!

This coming week though! Viktoria gets in tomorrow morning for five days in Sydney, Australia Day AND her birthday on top of that!
There will be lots of pictures taken for you y'all to see later on.

catch ya !

so, the schedule is not that busy anymore and we're trying to create some routines, even tho we don't have any ha!

Caught up with more friends last weekend in the city and went over to mac masters and the beach house for the night, just to relax, eat seafood, drink champagne and run along the beach, LIFE! Been to a few open houses during the week but no luck so far, we do have a few more on saturday tho. Signed up for the gym earlier, Anytime fitness which we had before and probably the franchise with the most gyms around in town, and back in gunnedah.

A few hours at the beach has also been spent of course to cool down from the heatwave that hit Sydney the last couple of days with 40 degrees. Though life!

Can't wait for saturday to celebrate my birthday girl Rosie's 25th at Bondi with heaps of peeps.

We're back in Sydney!
The next four days Sydney will be full of cricket fans and drunk mens (mainly). While they been enjoying there days at the cricket I been hiking, from Taronga zoo to Belmoral beach.
Had a stroll from Elizabeth bay into the city through the botanical garden and into the city. I love it and can't wait to get to know it more. Ended up at the cricket yesterday arvo even tho Tom had "enough" the day before. Had a few beers at the pub, as you do. Starting to feel tired, all this partying is starting to catch up with me. Can't wait to get back into routines!!

Definitely one of the best days this year. The celebration of a marriage between Mr & Mrs Stewart.
Had such a blast last night, lots of catching up with missed friends. An absolutely amazing wedding and also VERY hot, began the morning with 30 degrees and ended the arvo with 40. pretty sweaty as you can imagine.
So excited to see what 2017 holds for us!
Let's wish for a healthy, successful and the best year ever!

Thank you 2016 for my very best memories, you started in England followed by a week in Spain and some boring months before summer started, then you gave me a Swedish midsummer party by the coast with 12 of my best friends, you brought Tom's family and friends all the way to Sweden, a wedding in England, 3 weeks in Spain with more Aussies, crayfish party, 10 days at a wine yard in Tuscany, and all the other memories I got with my very best ones AND, not least.. a very big decision we made when we decided to move back to Australia, with everything we own. All though I'm happy to leave you behind and start a new chapter with 2017 and Australia!
You've been great but I've got lots more faith in what's about to come!

A small country town four hours inland from Sydney NSW. 10 000 people, all related to farms and agri business somehow. Koala capital of the world. The country town with one main street through the centre. The place I met Tom. Ended up here by choosing a family to do some nanny work for and ended up staying the rest of my first year here with Tom. This is where Tom grew up and where the Perrett family been owning a big piece of land for generations.

For a Swedish person like me or European I think this is the landscape you kind of see in movies. CHARMING!
Feels great to be back, peaceful!
For you who do know me knows that I'm crazy about animals, and there's lots here. I'm in heaven and of course we ended the arvo with some BBQ and champagnes and a dip in the pool!
This is the place which always ends up being 40 degrees so you kind of needs it.

All flights went very well, no delays, no long layovers, we got our bags and went through customs without any problems.
Nothing to complain about, wasn't to tired and slept through my first and second night.
Bought a PINK Iphone 7 since they didn't have any other colour, feeling craycray!
Been having nice fruit bowl breakies on the balcony, facing the water.
Had a few hours at the beach yesterday with a glass of rose in the sun, celebrating our 3 years anniversary, though life I know!
Had Toms moms family side over for BBQ and drinks yesterday, nice to catch up with everyone again.

We're now at the airport again for a shorter trip back to Gunnedah for a NYE wedding and some 40 degrees weather!!

Last month has been hectic and now we're on our way. We've had lots on lately and haven't had a time to update. Anyway, we've said goodbye to lots of friends and family and had a great farewell party which many of you showed up to. Thanks to all of you that keeps surprising us and that gave us lots of good luck wishes and gifts. It breaks my heart thinking of the distance we now have between us, that all my very best ones is so far away and that I've chosen this myself, so I rather not.

This very moment we're sitting in Düsseldorf waiting to board our second and longest flight to HongKong, everything has gone smooth so far and we're right in time, touch wood!
Not looking forward to another 20h of flying.

I will try to keep you updated!

Who could have thought that a 40 square meter apartment fits that much crap?!
Thought that this would be easy as since we already shipped our furnitures over a couple of weeks ago but na. My parents loaded the car full of boxes, bags, clothes, shoes, you name it, everything that could possibly fit. My VERY BEST friends showed up, with a vacuum cleaner. A few hours later and we were done! Why do you never do a cleaning like this while you actually living there?! Anyway, we did it over a bottle of wine and it's now spotless!
Ended the evening at Björns Bar with meat and cheese tasting platter and a few more wines. The very perfect Saturday!

If you may wonder what to do with a apartment when you leave for long term we decided to keep it since I own it, the market keeps reaching the top here I Gothenburg and it's a good way to invest your money. Make sure you're doing it legal and talk things through with your
Landlord. Quit all your contracts such as tv, broadband, electricity, home insurance and so on IN TIME since most of them have three months cancelation period. Make sure you're doing well described contract what's included and what fees there will be if something happens. In Sweden you need a separate insurance if you're the owner of the apartment and the person who's renting it, in my case my best friend need a different one.

26th of november, only a month left, and a few days from December. Time has gone to fast the last two months and I haven't had a minute over to realise it. All the things that had to be done! Even tho I think I've done most of the things by now. All appointments with doctors, dentist, the bank and so on.
This weekend we're moving out from our apartment, into mom and dads for the last couple of weeks and to be honest, it feels good!
My besties helping me this afternoon over a bottle of wine, how can I possibly find anyone like you when I'm gone?

I will show you some pictures this week from the move and quality time with family and friends!
