Big birthday last week as Jan turned 50 !?! Hard to believe but there was no way he could delay. Having said that: fifty is the new thirty, so every reason to keep young at heart. Hip Hip Hurrah!!!

Holiday at the beach

Another wonderful week at the beach in Normanville to finish the summer holidays. With so many other families from school around it was like one long great play date - for both kids and parents ;-) 

and next week its back to school !?!

Merry Christmas

Ho ho ho! As per Swedish customs Santa visited our home already on Christmas Eve. And what amazing presents did he bring! We had the most wonderful Swedish Christmas dinner - applause for the chefs. And we all had a ball with Santa's biggest present: a table tennis table.

Merry Christmas everyone!
