I still haven’t quite gotten used to the one hour time zone difference between Sweden and England, haha. It’s taking time to adjust to everything – it all feels very new to me. It’s like I’m taking baby steps when it comes to the easiest tasks such as paying for stuff in the shops, but I’m sure it’ll change soon. I’m too used to the Swedish language and talking like one does in Sweden (which means everything has to be ‘lagom’).
J came over to Malmö on Friday last week and helped me do the last bit of packing. With ‘last bit’ what I really mean is putting my entire life in 3 suitcases and 1 specially designed cardboard box with an attached plastic blue IKEA bag as handles in order to be able to put my PC case on hold at the airport on Saturday. Also, I’ve never seen anyone pack bags and suitcases like J does! I was very impressed. ♡
We celebrated my move with tasty food and champagne on the 25th and watched some episodes of ‘Modern Family’ on SKY. On Sunday we did some shopping in Liverpool and I bought some stuff from The Body Shop, and two pairs of jeans from NEXT. Sadly, the jeans didn’t fit too well (I tried on the regular fit, then switched to the petite ones which I assumed had the same size around the waist even though the legs were shorter) so I’ll go and exchange the grey pair as soon as possible – can’t change the black one as I already used it. I’m considering sending it to my Mum so that they get used instead of collecting dust. ♡
During the weekend we had some really amazing weather! The sun was out and we could wear our new Spring jackets. J was rocking his sunglasses. ♡ I do regret that I didn’t take my camera out, but in all honesty I was too exhausted from 2 weeks of cleaning and throwing things out back in Malmö, then 2 days of almost non-stop cleaning before my landlord came over for an inspection and then emptying the apartment and yet another inspection on the 25th a few hours before our flight.
Yesterday I had a meeting with a girl who has two Staffordshire bullterriers that she needs a dog sitter for in about two weeks. We agreed that if all goes as planned I’ll be looking after one of the dogs, and we went out for a walk with them in one of the parks close by. It was a beautiful, sunny day, not too cold, and the dogs were enjoying the walk. The girl and I chatted for a few hours and it was really nice! We also talked about starting jogging together, so I’m going downtown this week to buy some running shoes. I can’t wait to start excercising properly again!
Today I’m meeting another dog owner who is interested in hiring me as their dog sitter for a couple of weeks. Hopefully the meeting goes well and their dog will like me. ♡
