Historic week for me and my blog

Firstly yesterday I received my first ever Swedish payslip. I was really worried as I carefully opened it, visions of rockstar style tax percentages hit me hard, would this have all been a mistake….actually it wasnt as bad as I expected plus the streets are clean, the hospitals are in good nick, the education system is good….maybe the tax here isnt as bad as I had feared.

So thats it I am now officially being paid in Sweden and paying Swedish tax, I guess all I need to do is holiday in Thailand and I may even start to feel Swedish (the notes of God Save the Queen come straight to my head) yes sorry thats um an act of treason…

The other great news is this blog, its attracted over 15,376 since January. I am truly amazed and thank you all for visiting, mind you it could be my Mum who visits and keeps hitting the refresh button to make this blog seem popular of course.

Seriously though readers, thanks for indulging me.
