And today lunch at Horns Udde

We live right now a very busy life in Västervik - and today we were invited to lunch with Gustaf and Kidde at Horns Udde - our former brother in law. Once again a fantastic afternoon in rain and sunshine - but no rain when we were sailing with our Buster to and from the lunch.

Lunch at Björkö

We were invited for lunch at our friends` holiday home at Björkö - and as usal the seafood Lena and Jan served was EXCELLENT and so also the "snaps" and the wines. We had a lovely afternoon and were so satisfied when we took our Buster-boat back to Solhäll!

And shortly after having returned to Solhäll Mak arrived with wifë and children - and of course their dog Egon. The children love to play with the toys their father - and in some cases also their grandfather played with. Tonight also André, Anna and Elsa will arrive and so also Hanna-Fia´s sister with two children - so now Solhäll is full of life - and we do love it!

Meeting the children and granchildren in Lund / Malmö

I took the train from Västervik Saturday morning to celebrate Mark´s and Hanna-Fia´s daughter Tuva-Li´s third birthday on Sunday - and to meet our children and grandchildren except for André, Anna and Elsa because they are in our house in Olympus Village in Cyprus this week. Hot, hot, hot I learnt from our best friends and neibours Sue & Steve.

It was a fantastic birthday in bright sunshine - and Hanna-Fia is FANTASTIC! I tried to take photos of everything - from the cakes to the bithday cake with a yellow horse - because Tuva-Li did want a horse..... And of course - Hanna-Fia created a birthday cake with a horse.... and to the joy in their garden. The sun was also shining in Lund to the honour of the birthday celebration.

36 years "for better or worse"

So - yesterday Sven and I celebrated 36 years as a married couple! Worth at least a bronse medal...

Sven had bought the most beautiful flours for me - and I served him / us champage in beautiful sunny weather at the altany of Solhäll. We took a trip with our Buster and in the evening we enjoyed a superb dinner that arrived from the catering company by taxi. A fantastic day!
