Ready for the “Trunk Market”

About a month ago I’ve received the mail with the acceptance to the trunk market on the 29th of June *YEAH*!! Needless to say how happy and excited I was *unicorn-like*!

Luckily, I’ve been planning ahead and have been busy producing, plus created new things…so, thumbs went up when the message came, and I didn’t feel stressed. I was ready, with a certain selection of jewelry and new created key rings, in different colors and models.

It was also important to test my new booth, how to arrange everything. Questions about lighting (or better none?),

Running out of senior high school (gymnasium)

As my godson was ending senior high school I was up for the event in Helsingborg, Sweden. Running to of gymnasium as it is called (freely translated). This is a really big event in Sweden it is a must to one day in life. So if anyone have the chance and are in Sweden beginning of June I recommend to take a look.

At 6 pm  I was picked up once more for the ride to my sister and husband for a nice dinner. Here I meet my  own kids as we who came in from Gothenburg for this event. I was wonderful to meet everyone and we had a great and funny evening. The food we shouldn’t forget which was outstanding and made by my sister and her husband.

Passport challenges at renewal

My passport was on its way to expire and as it nowadays is mandatory to book a time for renewal of the passport. I thought that I will book a time really good in advance this time. 

What a surprise I had when I realised that it was 4 month waiting time at the Embassy in Bern, Switzerland where I do my passport !!!! 

I didn’t had a clue that there lived so many people in Switzerland. 

NOzeanium in Basel – A Victory!

A few years ago the “Zoo Basel” came up with a crazy idea: Let’s build a huge aquarium!.
In the end, people in Basel could vote about the project “Ozeanium” – the 19th May was D-Day!
Well, to cut a long story short, the people in Basel decided wisely and voted “no” – with 54.56% – BRAVO! It’s a milestone and shows that people start to think differently! They are more sensitized about what happens to our planet, to the animals and their habitat! Finally it’s also about our own survival, right?!

WHAT A NERVE-RACKING WEEK !

Honestly, this was one of the most troublesome weeks!Some of you know that our new bimini annoyingly hasn’t arrived on Easter. So instead of  getting some work done, we were “forced” to enjoy a week holiday…well, of course it was fun, but not the plan!After our return at home, we received the good news that the bimini had finally been sent from Germany on the 26th April, and within 5 working days it was scheduled to arrive in Loano. Sweet! We immediately started to plan our trip and I booked a room at the Yacht Club for the weekend from 18th – 19th May.

Trip to Mariehamn Åland

Mariehamn, Åland island.
I arrived home from Mariehamn late last night where I have been for an exhibition.
Normally it’s not me who’s going on the exhibition’s. But as  they speak Swedish on Åland and I have  some old contacts which came, as well old class mates from university (Marine academy in Gothenburg) it was not much of a choice. If you attend this kind of exhibition the connections and speaking Swedish is more or less mandatory. Not because they don’t speak English there. It is more that it’s a more relaxed exhibition than normally, here you chat with everyone even if it is only to say hi. As Åland is and Island country it is not that easy to come in and be accepted here. But when you are accepted  you have more or less friends or partners for life.

It Was A Short Week

Hi everyone!
We hope you also had a pleasant week! Ours was very short…..hmm…OK, mine was, as I took last Monday off, “poor” Patrik had to work!But I wasn’t lazy, on Monday I did the remaining laundry from our week in Loano.
Which was – as usual –  a lot (not only our clothes, but also towels and bed linen).
I even had the time to devote myself to my hobby, doing jewellery and key rings – a brand new design, by the way!
Tuesday was a working day, but on Wednesday it was 1st May and we weren’t working.
Each canton in Switzerland handles it differently actually.
We are lucky enough and life in one where the 1st of May is treated as a holiday!
