Post Christmas Bedroom


Removed Christmas in the bedroom.
I left the curtains though... so now it's bright, white
and very relaxed!





After the white, I brought back some red again - in time for Valentine's Day.

The school year has well and truly started and I've been totally absorbed in the kids' homework as well as continuing to remove Christmas. Yes, you read right... I'm still removing Christmas. It's been a long process this year. Slowly but surely, I'm getting my house back to normal again. - in time for Easter, maybe!! 

I like keeping the red going after Christmas, especially to around Valentine's Day. It's so nice and warm. Speaking of warm... We've had a heatwave here in south east Queensland and it's been terrible. Too hot and too humid. This Viking does not enjoy the tropical climate we've been blessed with this week. Far out, it didn't matter if you had a shower or not. You were as sweaty after a shower - as before. Crazy!



Sovrummet i vit skrud efter jul.

Sedan blev det rött till Alla Hjärtans dag.

Värmebölja här i Brisbane.
Varmt o fuktigt.
Jättejobbigt.

On my Christmas cloud...


I'm still enjoying my Christmas decor.
I look around and feel like I'm still on my little Christmas cloud,
or maybe I should say in my Christmas bauble lol

The weather has been extremely hot,
and I have been cooling down in front of the Air Con.
I'm as far away from Sweden's snowy weather as you can get.


Jag njuter fortfarande av julen härhemma.
Ser mig omkring och det känns som om jag fortfarande 
svävar runt på mitt lilla julmoln, eller inuti en julkula kanske haha

Vädret har varit oerhört varmt,
och jag har kylt ner mig framför luftkonditioneringen.
Jag är så långt ifrån Sveriges vinter man kan komma.

Two Christmas trees


Two of my Christmas trees.

♥♥♥


20 days after Christmas, the 13th of January, is the day when us Swedes remove our Christmas decorations... I usually keep it up a bit longer.  I spent so much time decorating the house, so I want to enjoy all the decor for a long time... ♥

Belated Christmas present


Received a belated Christmas present in the mail this afternoon... Swedish Desserts - 80 traditional recipes by Cecilia Vikbladh. I think my book is the English version of the Swedish 'Sju sorters julkakor'. Either way, lots of Swedish Christmas goodies...

♥♥♥

Fick en försenad julklapp i brevlådan i eftermiddags. Swedish Desserts - 80 traditional recipes av Cecilia Vikbladh. Tror att denna boken är den engelska varianten av "Sju sorters julkakor". Även om det inte är det, så finns massor av svenska mumsiga julrecept...

Still Christmas...


Only two weeks left of the Christmas holidays.
The new school year starts Monday the 22nd...

I'm still enjoying my Christmas house and while I see and hear about other bloggers and Instagram friends taking their Christmas decor down, I'm still going to keep mine up for a while longer. I love the red, I love the warmth - even if it's 33°c/93°F outdoors lol, I love the way the Christmas decor make me feel in the heart!

♥♥♥

Här får julen hänga med ett tag till... Två veckor kvar på jullovet - måndagen den 22a januari drar det nya skolåret igång. Jag njuter av det röda, värmen och känslan i hjärtat när jag ser allt fint omkring mig. Det är dock varmt ute också... 33°c
