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 :-)


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.
