We have arrived.

After a 16 hour flight we are finally here. Ol and me outdid ourselved in practicality. Matching, memory foam, travel pillows, practical bags and hoodies.

Slept most of today, took a walk were ol almost fainted from the heat and i had the best banana milkshake.

We are still the palest on the island

Ajöss och tack för fisken

Only a couple of hours more before I’m logging off and leave for 2 weeks in paradise. My only concern is that I’m very unmatched for the flight over – red, oversized hoodie, practical jacket and neon pink shoes. We all know that wont get you upgraded (right Sanna) as well as it makes me a bit sick being that un fashionable.

Other than that I cant complain. We’ll be picked up from the airport and driven the directly to this place

 We’ll spend three days working (that means that Ol will be working and I’ll be found by the pool) and then we’re off to travel the East side and the mountains in the middle.

Apparently there are ok wi fi so I’ll try and update the blog with pictures so you know we’re alive and not stuck in the hospital now that we dont have our own sterile syringes. Or as Ol said this morning ‘I wont be able to hold myself from say ‘told you so’ if we get hepatitis from using their syringes.’ Fair.

Happy Easter!

It’s Heidi’s Birthday tomorrow as well as Easter and we all know what that means by now…loads of cake, sweeties and sugar highs.

True to form we ventured up to Paul’s (we must be their best customers by now) and picked up a cake. Fromage (fancy word for cheescake as Jonas pointed out) this time to make it a bit lighter for the early morning. Even if the clock hadn’t yet struck 11 it got eaten. I’m proud of my team.

Heidi cutting her cake like a pro.  
Fancy cheescake. Very fancy indeed and tasted really good. 
 
We have an Easter Egg appeal at work were we are asked to give chocolate eggs to children with illnesses so this isn’t for the porky pies of the office.  

The night before today

Yesterday went to Anglesea Arms to meet up with Pettan, Hanne and Joe for a beer. It was us and a shit load of old men. That didn’t stop us from having a nice time and devouring beers. They have moved down to South Ken, I’m expecting spring time hang out at Anglesea Arms again.

Eventually my senses got the better of me and I went home to Oliver and picked up some food on the way. Among other things this hideously orange cheese. It was surprisingly good. Then passed out.

An Eggcellent evening!

Last night was dinner and egg painting at Kix’s. Who knew we would let out our inner artists. Started by making us a green pea soup with parma bread sticks.


Actually turned out quite well…


Then Kix made us strawberry and youghurt dessert while we started planning our artistic master pieces


First I had to play some with the Ziglet, Kix said I sounded like a monster, Tompa like a super hero. I prefer Tompa’s version.


I also got a travel gift from Kix – a set of juggling balls. I know what i’ll be doing on the beach.


Then the painting could begin. Kix made a ‘classical’ one to get herself warmed up.  Good start.


Tompa was feeling the inner calm and looking for inspiration.


I missed Laxen and made an easter egg with Laxen as a salmon drinking vodka at Raffles. It turned out pretty accurate.


Ol was jealous and asked if i could paint him. It became a binnikemask (tape worm) in a green sweater and with a tiny bit of chest hair. He also had a weird lump on his head. Pretty spot on.


I then had to do a self portrait – owning at Raffles (i havent been hanged as Kix thought)


Eggsellent couple right (hahaha, best egg joke, so good that I will re use it in the title)


The end production of our creativeness. See Tompa’s awesome dragon, Kix’s version of Sven behind Laxen and her picture of her future kids.
