Its taken eleven months or so but now I really feel I am in Scandinavia. Here are some photos and a small video clip of what I saw when I looked out of my window this morning.

Oh and here is the video clip of snow in Stockholm well snow på Södermalm!
Today I am losing my virginity again 😉 Sarah Palin is taking me to IKEA as I have (coughs) never been. Well what do you expect 33 and never married why would I go? Oh well! Then she is taking me to Sigtuna which apparently is Swedens oldest town, should be nice to get out of Stockholm for a change and see more of this beautiful country. Dont worry Ma I will a big scarf and gloves!

There are two questions I am constantly asked about Sweden
1) How cold is it?
2) What are the women like?
I have to say in answer to question one, I have only really felt cold on one occasion since I have been here. I am refusing to wear gloves and my North Face arctic coat until its really cold.
In answer to Q2? Thats not the sort of question a gentleman usually answers, especially when he knows there are some Swedish females who read this blog. I do think that after reading what Viking women really wore (nothing like the above pic apparently) that the Swedish women should go back to Viking tradition a bit more and wear the fashions of their female ancestors….
Unfortunately I have had to remove Montchans blog from the North, it appears her blog has been deleted which is a shame as it was an enjoyable read, hopefully she will be back soon.
Todays Swedish Word of the day is kläder -clothing
