Only 4 more days until I land in Sweden and get picked up by mum and dad. Dad called me today and asked if I wanted food when I got home. Oh yes! I’ve been waiting for mums home cooked way to long now. And her amazing Christmas ham.
I really, really long to be home now. I feel like the John Lewis commercial, I wait and I wait to see everyone I love to give them their Christmas gifts and spend time with them. I’m simultaneously emptied of energy and overflowed with love.
I’ll long for the easiness of family. Of baby hugs. Of being somewhere were everything feels so easy.
We went to the Lucia concert in St Pauls on Friday. Unfortunately you weren’t allowed to take any pictures but it was breathtakingly beautiful. I cried.
After dinner we went to a japanese restaurant in Soho with foot kneeded noodles (like thats a good thing). Very authentic.
Elin desperately wanted to melt in and took her shoes off. The horror!
Elin and me had cold (!) udon noodles which were delicious and oliver had fish liver soup which slightly less so. Reminded me of childhood morning drinking tran. Not a good memory.
Pretty blond Elin next to oliver’s Emil hat. Very non japanese.
I met Ben up East yesterday. After walking through the pouring rain he took my to a dark, garbage smelly alley and to this really cool exhibition in a damp, cold and old second world war bunker.
In there was a world of it own by Anomalous visuals with dark rooms filled with lights, sounds, shapes and soap bubbles.
My favourites (except for the soap bubbles, but you are so not allowed to squeal ‘soap bubbles’ when someone ask for your favourite and you are working in marketing and not art) was the room with a squared of chains on which the light shapes of dancers projecting on the wall could be seen (wow, I’m so not making it justice) and the video game which took you through an old mental institution chasing for nothing.
It was really cool but after a while neither me nor Ben could speak since our entire bodies frozen to ice so we left for a warm cozy pub, beers and burgers and had a couple of hours of life altering, heart wrenching, through your bones chat.
(but i did love the soap bubbles the most)
