Since I last wrote we (my job) have been to a wonderful dinner together, after the Annual meeting of shareholders. I had suggested a couple of restaurants and we choose one called "Restaurant Shvejts", yes that is how Suisse sounds in Swedish. So the dishes were Suisse. We had a wonderful fondue of fillet and others also had cheese fondue and chocolate fondue. Very good, very familiar feeling and very small! Good choice :-)
We were supposed to go to dinner at our friends house last Saturday but unfortunately they got sick so it was postponed.

But on Sunday I met up with my Mom's cousin, 85 years old but so much younger in mind and spirit, and I treated her with dinner at my hotel. We always have so much to talk about and we laugh a lot :-)

Then Monday the course started and I went there by foot. It was so windy you can't believe. I think it was almost hurricane winds in the gusts. I'm a steady woman but even I had a hard time not falling when the wind caught me.
We also had to walk for 15-20 minutes to the lunch restaurant and that was hard too. The restaurant was situated very close to the sea where it was even more wind.

The next day we were supposed to go there too but after a snowy, windy night I couldn't do it. I had so much pain in my pelvis and groins so I said I would stay in during lunch break. But they found another restaurant just across the street where they had never been before. Gorgeous food, salmon, and a beautiful view over the canal and only 3 minutes to walk. Perfect!
Home again Tuesday night, late. Hasse was a darling and fetched at the train station in Stockholm. And the next morning I was at work at 6AM as usual.
Thursday we had our annual meeting with the Rheumatic association and I was voted treasurer.
A funny thing happened just before the meeting. I had parked my car on a street a couple of blocks from where the meeting was held. When I went to the parking machine to pay I started to insert my credit card when I saw there already was a card there. Someone had forgot their credit card in the machine!
What to do? I called the police and asked them and she asked if I could come to the Police house on Kungsholmen which is quite far from where I was so I said no, I'm on my way to a meeting. Then the police said I could try calling the person. So I called Eniro and asked if they had a number to XX and when I explained what had happened I got 3 different numbers to this person. Luckily she didn't have an ordinary name.
So I called the number and I asked if she was missing her credit card. It was totally quiet and then she said: Oh no did I forget it? Is it from the ....Bank. I said yes and she said she had been in such hurry to a doctor's appointment.
I told her where I was and she said she would call afterwards and so she did. I met up with her and handed over her card. She was so grateful and she had even bought me a boquet of tulips :-) That was so nice of her.
This weekend I'm cooking for my workmates. It's my turn on Monday and I can't write here what I'm going to do (if someone reads it ;-)) so I have to tell you afterwards.
Otherwise this coming week is Easter week and as I said to Hasse today I really miss not being in LA this time of the year. It's usually Easter I go over to see my sister and family. We still have snow here and I could really do with some lovely weather.
