This week I am revelling in the cooler days and the beautiful sunshine that Stockholm has to offer at this time of the year. I forget every year but then autumn rolls around and I remember, once again, that it is probably my favourite season. The slightly crisper days, the light of the milder sunshine that seems to flatter the buildings here, reflecting on the water and bringing a smile to my face. (Although the day after I typed this, the sun made a stronger reappearance and I put the boots back away.)
Little O had his first session at English club at his förskola on Monday and loved it so much that on the following day he headed straight to the classroom where it was held and was most put out to discover that he was only required to play in the playground. I was so pleased to hear that he had enjoyed it, as I was concerned that his attention would not last the 45-minute span of the session. Seems my fears were misplaced.
We’re starting to get the apartment into shape and now have “only” 20 boxes marked Essential left to unpack. However, that means that we’ve unpacked 30 already, so we’re more than halfway. It is looking unlikely that the rooms will be ready by the revised date of late September (originally mid-month), so I guess we’re camping out until mid-October, in all likelihood. However, we’re getting more and more into the swing of this. And as soon as we get a fridge, it will be even easier!
