Just to let you know I'm still here

but I am more or less going into hibernation this time of the year


 I did have a board meeting last week with the Rheumatic association and I did go to the Hamburger Börs to watch the show Alcazar. That was my birthday gift from my sister Helen.


My beautiful sister Helen
This was the day after the horrible events in Paris. I didn't really felt like going to a show, having fun, dancing after that but then I thought why should they (terrorists) detstroy everything. That is just what they want. They want us to be scared and frightened to go out to restaurants, clubs, shows etc so if we stay inside afraid we do exactly what they want us to do. So we went!

Of course before the show the artists too mentioned the horrible things and said the world is evil but we have to fight it with love and that is what we did.

The show is with Alcazar, as I said earlier, a disco group that breathe, eat and live disco. And since I was young during that era I love it!

Yesterday was a very lazy Sunday and I even watched an old movie on TV. And I can tell you, knock on wood, that my cold is much better!


And yes I almost forgot. Jonas is in Buenos Aires! doing a gig with Martina Edoff. I mean Argentina. What an experience! Sadly enough Lufthansa went on strike the day they were going so they had to rebook to American airlines which meant 30 hours of traveling before reaching BA. I hope he has a great time there and maybe even learns how to dance the tango.

November is here with darkness and cold






Yes, I have a bad cold and have had it for 10 days. It's not very nice and the coughing is worst.

I think of Hasse when I cough and I think it's tough but he has been coughing constantly for 7 years every day!! That is tough!

Although cold I worked on Monday and then went on education for 2 days. It was hard but I managed and I stayed in town at a hotel instead of travelling home in rush hour so that was nice.

But then I have been home resting and trying to get better and I do think I'm a bit better. Last night I slept the whole night through for the first time in a long time.

Tomorrow it's Father's Day here in Sweden and I will celebrate Hasse. Emil will probably come as well but Jonas can't. He's going to Buenos Aires on Wednesday for a show with Martina Edoff and they have dress rehearsal tomorrow.

I'm so happy that Jonas get to experience so much of the world thanks to his big talent. He and Mandy are going to Florida and Mexico in January on holiday :-)


Today is "kladdkakans dag" here in Sweden. It's a kind of chocolate cake which is smudgy inside and is served with whipped cream. So I made one for "fika" today :-)
Here's a recipe for a delicious "kladdkaka" if you wish to try :-)



KLADDKAKA



100 g butter
2 organic eggs
2 dl white sugar
1 dl brown sugar
2 ½ dl wheat flour
4 tablespoons cocoa of good quality
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
1 pinch of salt
Butter and bread crumbs for the baking tin.
50 g dark chocolate of good quality

Preheat the oven to 150 C (302F)

Melt the butter in a saucepan. 
Beat eggs, sugar, brown sugar until fluffy and stir in the butter.
Mix the dry ingredients and mix into the batter. Add 50 g dark chocolate which you have shopped into small pieces.
Fill the batter into a greased and floured mold with removable edges
Bake in middle of oven for about 30 minutes. Test if ready, it should be a bit sticky especially in the middle.

Enjoy!
