Girls weekend

Saturday, again. The weeks are really just flying by. Erik is off to run Göteborgsvarvet today, so I am basically a “single-mom” this weekend. I have not been alone with Sajka over several days before, but it is going very well. She is behaving like a dog should behave.

Can you believe she is 5 months in just a couple of days and she is getting so big! She sure ain't mom's little baby anymore. Which is sort of sad, but mostly a relief. She is becoming calmer by the day and we are slowly getting back into a somewhat normal day to day routine. 


This is in other words a proper girls weekend. I have two friends coming over tonight for some food, wine and overdue girl talk. Hopefully there won’t be any girl drama. I know Sajka have it in her to stir up a storm if she wants to, that bitch.

Have you got any fun plans for the weekend?

Until next time, Renate.

Walpurgis Night

I just learned that Valborg (as they say here in Sweden) is called Walpurgis Night in English. I did not know that, so thank you Wikipedia. Walpurgis Night is celebrated on the night of 30th April with a massive bonfire. 


We went to a friends country house for the night, where we enjoyed quality time with good friends over drinks and a barbecue. The first barbecue of the year! Summer is coming.


Sajka loved being able to run around the house free of a leash. There was so much to see, hear and sniff for a young, little pup. She was allowed to run around freely up until I saw her running around with a viper snake hanging from her mouth. Thankfully, it seemed to already be dead.


Until next time, Renate.

Easter break in Sälen

We were a group of seven, eight counting the puppy, who went up to a cabin in Sälen for Easter to ski, drink and play boardgames. We did just that. Ok, when I say we I meant most of us. I was on puppy-duty most of the time so I didn't actually get to ski at all. I am not much of a skier really, so it felt natural taking the bullet and let Erik off puppy-duty to enjoy the slopes. Especially since I had to bounce a couple days early to head to Norway and my nephew's christening, leaving Erik alone in charge of our monster/angel (depending on the mood) of a dog. 


Sajka absolutely loved jumping around in the snow. One of her favourite activities was running up a large pile of snow to then slide down. Repeat until tired. Wherever we took her we were stopped by people who just had to say hi to her. She became quite the popular lady in Sälen, our Sajka. Even tho her way of greeting people is by barking at them until she feels brave enough to go sniff them for a second. That was her communication method every day, except one time when we went to the afterski. She suddenly decided everyone was her friend and went around greeting everyone, whether they wanted to or not. (which of course they did, who are we kidding). 


Next time we go skiing, Sajka will most likely be a big enough girl to come along, meaning the whole family can enjoy a day out skiing together! (Sajka won't be skiing, but you get what I mean). That will be very nice, especially seeing as if I get tired, Sajka can just pull me along. Kidding. Maybe not.


The weather was simply perfect. Sun, blue skies and a decent temperature so you actually felt quite warm sitting outside in the sun. I even got a tan. No, I didn't. I don't even get a tan in Bali... BUT I didn't get a sun burn either, and those I do get. Even tho the trip was a bit short for me and I mostly made sure the dog didn't do any mischief, it was all in all a lovely little get away. Next time will be even better!

Until next time, Renate.
