Hi Stockholm!

Champagne

The move to Stockholm and all the packing was terrible. We managed to exceed our space in the removal van, but luckily there was enough room for our things anyway so the only thing that happened was that we had to pay some extra money :-) After the removal company had left with all our things we cleaned the apartment and then we took the train together with our cats.

It was really exciting to step into the new apartment even though it was late and we were dead tired. When we came to the kitchen there laid a book about our neighborhood along with a post-it note saying welcome, and also asking us to look in the fridge where we found a bottle of Champagne, two Champagne glasses and a card with warm and welcoming words. I was very touched as I was rather sad being 500 km from “home”. And then I felt bad that we didn’t do anything similiar to our buyers of our apartment in Gothenburg….

A book abouth our neighbourhood and a message!

Welcome to Klara! Look in the fridge!

During the same day one of our friends had received one set of our new keys so that we could enter the apartment, and he met us with the keys at the train station in Stockholm. Unfortunately he had forgotten the blankets and pillows that we had asked for, as our furniture shouldn’t arrive until the next morning. So we had to sleep on our inflatable bed with our clothes on and our jackets as blankets…

Anyway, I really love the kitchen, I’ve never had such an advanced oven before and I’m fascinated every time I use it. It has a lot of great functions and there’s a display saying what it does in Swedish. The oven is my new best friend :-)

    Welcome back, Dagmar – glad to hear the move went well, even if the first night was a bit on the unfomfy side:)
    It was indeed a lovely touch by the previous residents to leave you a bottle of bubbly in the fridge – must have been a good compensation for the lack of blankets and pillows..

    Hej Dagmar! Matblogg.se får också hälsa välkomna till Stockholm, en lista på restauranger i närheten kommer snart!

    Sedan skulle det vara kul att få ett recept på den polska röbetsoppan med små öron som det stod om i julinlägget :)

    Pille and Em,
    Thank you!

    Clivia,
    The last days have been really cold but sunny. Maybe spring is coming slowly? :-)

    Niklas,
    Tack! En lista skulle verkligen uppskattas :-) Gärna caféer också, det verkar inte alls lika café-tätt som i Gbg eller så har vi helt enkelt letat på fel ställen…

    Rödbetssoppan kommer, först måste jag bara göra den igen och mäta upp alla ingredienser. Det är trevligt med ögonmått men inte när man skall skriva ner det…
