Insight To My Life

Gud Dag!

My training week is finally coming to an end! Thank God cos I am exhausted. We are out at 7 and don't get back till at least 10pm.

Its snowing here in Sweden, can you believe it? The snow was unexpected and its been so comical. We were going somewhere outside stockholm on a bus when it started snowing and because the country was ill prepared, all the cars were slipping and sliding. Apparently people slept in their cars cos the couldn't get off the highway. We were lucky enough to stop by a train station and we took the train instead. We finally got home at 12 midnight. Its -2 and the floor is so slippery. My boots have no grips, its lucky I haven't fallen flat on my face yet. But its so beautiful!

Everyone speaks english here and right now I'm watching CSI NY in english subtitled in Swedish.

Shopping is a NO NO. Everything here is freaking expensive, even the food but man has got to eat. Its 1 dollar to 7 swedish kroners and I haven't spotted any poor people yet. Seems like this is an ideal country to belong to. Education is free till 18 and the get paid well.

I'll post some pics on Ofoto soon. It gets lonely in this damn hotel sometimes. Why don't I have some young man to talk to at times like these??? Being single can be such a pain sometimes! Enjoy the weekend all.

Hey, pad up darling.We don't want you down and flat sneezing!
Sweden can be chilly. Have been there for holiday once and men, things are quite expensive. But it is a beautiful country, i give them kudos for the facilities they have in place.

Wow. Have some fun for us and do get some sensible boots. LOL. Falling in snow is so unpleasant and pain kicks in after u begin to thaw. Personal experience from too many falls in Chicago...

Sweets,
I'm so happy for you. It's great that you're loving the place, you're gonna have to be there for a while in'it.

Please get some decent boots, I couldn't bear the thought of having to scrape pieces of that delicately beautiful face off of some snowy sidewalk.

Being single can be a pain? Don't I know it, but you know, you can always call me...lol. I'll serenade you all through the night.
