Whilst en route to work today our tube broke down, we were asked politely to get off at Ostermalmstorg and wait for the next tube.
Of course its a pain in the arse but this is the first time I have had any issues on the Stockholm Underground since I moved moved here nearly 3 months ago. That is some feat when you have lived in London!
Other news, my new Juicer arrived this week. I need to eat more fruit and feel this would be a great way to get more fruit intake. I gave it a spin tonight, Apple, Pear and Pineapple, it was, as we used to in Swansea when I was a kid ‘lush’. I paid quite a bit for it but I can see why.
I opted for this Philips Juicer. I like it because it has a wide funnel which means you dont have to spend ages chopping everything up, it takes apples whole for example. It has a massive pulp container which means you can leave the skin on the pineapple and it sends it all off to the pulp container and not the juice. I like the fact you can juice continuously rather than stop/start as you have to do on cheaper models.
I hope I keep using this. My last Smoothie maker was relegated to the back of the cupboard after awhile but I am determined to get my fruit intake. With the new job I cant afford to be off sick so fingers crossed this will help me fight off any bugs or colds.
I finally managed to sort some bank issues out today and sign up for a monthly billed mobile phone. I dont think you are truly settled anywhere until you have a proper phone. This means I will be retiring my other numbers shortly, for those of you who have them.
I am very happy tonight. I have just seen Liverpool do the bizo over Arsenal in the Champions League. A great game and a great display of why you should never give up. The Mighty Swans also drew away at 2nd place Carlisle so thats a big point for us. Psychologically it should push us across the finish line now.
I do apologise thats 2 football posts in 2 days, I wont make a habit of it.
Blogging will be a light over the next few days as I am leaving for Berlin tomorrow though I am back late on Friday. Monday Tuesday I am in Amsterdam, its all go at the moment!
