Lukas days

Lukas has a cold and has been home for the last couple of days. You could say I’m working and looking after lukas but that would be a lie. Trying to work while someone either climbs on you or trying to kill himself is not easy.

So we’ve been managing his cold and the heat. That means no food but lots of liquid and ice cream and living inside the fan if we could.

Or playing with bubbles because everyone loves bubbles.

Doing some gardening. Naked of course.

Plus trying to sleep in the heat. Lukas sleeping and me getting some work done. Today I felt very smart when I couldn’t figure out why the fan barely worked.

Well, I had put it to face the wall…

More naked activities. Drawing. He’s soo cute sitting on his little chair.

Play Dough. Holding ALL of them in his hand at the same time. Greedy lil dude.

Lukas other little chair. I got this from my grandma when I was a kid and now Lukas love sitting on it. Very cute.

Ended yesterday with finally getting my vaccine. Normal world here we come.

Today we went down to Tessinparken. They have a fountain/paddling pool there. So many little kiddies hanging out in the heat.

Lukas is no lover of the water. Safest to sit and only dip the toes.

We found a park.

And some vehicle lukas was way too little for but loved. Sorry baby.

Then George showed up and our day out and about was over. Tomorrow George is taking him since I actually need to get some work done.

Not horrible having to be home with him in this lovely weather.

Summer in the city

We went out on Djugården and literally jumped into the sea 20 min walking from our door. I love that sthlm is such a clean city. Imagine doing that in the Thames…

I might have bigged it up a bit for George though. Saying beach to an Aussie means something very different…

But this little guy went into his waist and didn’t totally hate on the icy cold swede water.

Plus swag. He looks just so silly.

Then he came up with the best game. Sitting in the middle of the road rolling olives in dirt and offering it to strangers. Keep being you Lukas.

Katta and Lukas hung out talking shit. Yes to watching from afar.

Ha, that middle aged man belly ❤️

All for the bubbles.

When we got home this little man jumped straight into the big boy chair. I think he’s decided he’s all grown now that he’s been swimming in the sea.

Summer life

Summer. Lovely, green, blooming June. It’s all so much easier with Lukas and enjoying our evenings and weekends when you can just go outside and play. Especially now that he wakes up at 5 in the mornings. The days are extremely long.

Work is stressful at the moment. Crisis management. Big decisions. Struggling with working from home. I love my job, I really do but man, it’s got some high stakes going.

On Monday lukas nursery was closed and we went to Skansen. He started with dressing himself. I look you look but maybe not people friendly.

Once at Skansen it was us, the animals and like a 1000 school kids.

Lukas fell in love with the bears. Unfortunately, they cared nothing for him. Unrequited love is painful little man.

Half a little bear.

Done and dusted with his Skansen adventures.

We have this never ending problem brushing lukas teeth. He hates it. At the moment we are down to holding him down, while he screams, to try and brush. We have really tried everything. I hate that he screams like someone is torturing him. But we need to brush these gnashers little man.

On Wednesday the bookclub met up. Love this break from life. Ladies, food and books. Lethal combo.

Cut my hair yesterday. Darker and trying to get some moisture in. I did that cleansing treatment since my hair was quite knotty and now it’s so, so dry.

So now it’s all about the moisture.

The outside!

I’m in love with summer right now. I’m normally your autumn kind of gal liking my tea and sweater and excuse to be inside. But maybe it’s because so much time have been spent inside last year but I’m craving the outside!

Im also noticing the difference to London. Sweden is just that bit colder that means picnic weather is not until June. In London you got that as early as March. Either way, I just want to sit in the shade with a book and ENJOY!

I’ve actually put on real clothes today. That match (well, i made it easy with a jumpsuit). Mainly because I’m having lunch with mum and dad but any excuse to look good.

My mind is all over the place at moment. Work. It’s hard at times. Especially working with kids. So getting out of the flat becomes even more important. Can’t turn into a sofa shaped lump just yet.

Good thing this guy keeps me on my toes. From morning to evening. Boss.

Speaking of boss (ish). They are making flower pots in nursery. I feel like they’ve caught him in a good angle here. Most times he is not this precise with his painting skills. Not birthed a future Picasso.

And I mean, they must have bribed him to not have him eating those seeds 🤨.

But hey, can’t wait to see lukas homegrown sunflowers.

And a last pic for the road. Eating papas bolognese. Life could be worse.
