Also today, I got outside for the first time in 48 hours…those who know me well will realise that I’ve been working hard for this to be the case, as I am never a happy bee being inside all day.  We popped into town to try and register for my Swedish ID card now I have my personal number, but the queue at the tax office was out the door and along the pavement, so funnily enough, with three children in tow, I decided that could wait.  We also took mini man no.1 off for his second ballet lesson, complete with ballet shoes, so he was very happy.  Then it was back home for…..more picture hanging!  Tomorrow I will tackle the boxes of books, and that should see the last of all the boxes unpacked.  I am also going to send my colour blind husband off buying 6 lampshades, so we might have an interesting colour scheme in the house by tomorrow night!  The boys are also going to try out the gymnastics club here on the island tomorrow that we’ve managed to find out about, so another busy day, but I can see the end is in sight 🙂
