Don’t let this serene winter landscape fool you – things have been hectic and crazy AS PER USUAL*. So, what is new? Glad you asked: 1. My 1-year work contract has miraculously been extended to a permanent position, so THAT’S HAPPENING. 2. We’re moving! Again! To Uppsala, but for real this time.

Well, hello! It’s me! God, I am a terrible blogger. As soon as life gets in the way, ZAP! The blog just goes right to the bottom of the to-do list. Eh, oh well. I always come back, don’t I??

So, I’m making it up to you with one final Sweden post, and even though I am so incredibly late on this, I thought I’d share our family’s Christmas! As you can see so far, the Girerd-Barclay’s are QUITE the party animals… […]

As some of you know, we spent the last two weeks of December in Stockholm. My dad lives there, and it’s where our family always meets up on the holidays. On one (rare) sunny day, we decided to venture out into the cold and tour the city before the sun went down. Our plan was to catch a ferry that tours the archipelago, so we headed towards Östermalm. Unfortunately, the ferry was closed that day, […]
