A total make-over from what it was when we bought the house. I should actually try to find one to compare.

But half a deck to fill the other half with gravel and have a trampoline. When the kids are bored of it in a couple of years (or months), we’ll have to figure out what to do with it. My idea is to build a fire pit, so we can sit there in the evenings and have a drink or so. But there is some convincing to do first.

PS: Yip, I am standing in another neighbors garden again.

This is what it looks like now. The idea is to maybe replace the windows on the right this summer. 3 Windows and a door it will be. Probably a door that has glass all the way down to the floor. We’ll see. If the COVID-19 is still around and keeping us in Sweden, then this will be an option. Otherwise we might jump in the car and do some road tripping.

We are driving a Volvo these days.Volvo for life, they say. And honestly, this is actually the best car I can image. It just ticks all the boxes for me on what a car is supposed to be like.

But…. we are only 2 months in. So we’ll see what it’s like in a year or so.

Easter Sunday. Trainng game during the COVID-19 pandemic. Is ok in Sweden according the different sports organisations.

And yes, the weather was totally the opposite from Saturday’s. But it will be sunny again soon they say.

At it again

A long Easter weekend and the sun is out, so we decided to rent a container and have a go at the dirt mountain in the front of the garden. We filled the whole thing (about 7m3) and moved just over half of what we have. so I guess next Friday, there will be an empty container again on the drive way.

Looks like this these days. Haven’t seen the other one in 5 weeks now, I think. Already loosing count.

But we keep in touch every morning with Teams, a microphone and a webcam. Not really the same and longing actually to meet the collegues. But it keeps us safe and hopefully we will get rid of this virus sooner.

The crisis

I don’t get it. The government says there is no need to panic, but still. The shops are raided for pasta, rice and toilet paper.Doesn’t look like it. But then again who cares or??

Not bad

And back to this. Not bad at all. Looks like spring is around the corner. If just the temperatures would go up
a bit more, all would be fine.

And no, we never see a sunset over the water from our place.

Deceipt in the first game of the year

And so it began again. The pre-season has started and the first training game is over and done.

The photo on the other hand is a bit misleading. All sunny and blue skies, but it was really windy and chilly. There was a storm brewing since Friday afternoon. This was taken on the Saturday afternoon, but at the time we left home, it was pooring down hail!!! And about 20 minutes after this photo it was dark, raining and a new hailstorm. The game even got stopped for a few minutes and the girls could shelter from the rain.

Eventually we just had to harden it out in wind and weather. The game ended in a justified 2-2 score. Everybody was happy and tired, so the rest of the day was spent in a sofa…

It’s part of the commuting life. You could turn in your bike to a bike shop and pay for it. But the bikes get abused so much during the dark time of the year by rain, mud, snow and ice.

The problem is that I don’t know all this stuff. But….. that’s where youtube comes in handy. 20 years ago you had to go as an apprentice during the weekends to learn all this. Now it’s all a click away. Some favorites:

And when you make a mistake, you just start all over. The advantage of having 2 bikes, I guess. Always one ready to bike with and one to tinker with….
