After 6 months of living in Sweden the food is probably the only thing that still surprises me, now I must say I’m a big fan of Swedish meatballs, cream sauce and mash potato, that is just a treat! But other things I can’t help but think WTF! And its not like the stuff that looks weird tastes any better cause it doesn’t.
Well this was not the case last night, I was served up a lovely dish of hash browns, crunchy delicious bacon and sweet blood pudding, now in England this is a typical breakfast and add beans, sausages and a fried egg and you got your self a full English! It does feel strange to eat the usual breakfast ingredients in the evening and since it’s the norm here it just made it all that more strange but I’ll take that over Pyttipanna any day thanks.
So I’ve been thinking about getting Healthier lately but not interested in paying shit load of money I ain’t got on gym memberships so have decided I’m going to take the bicycle route to a healthier life but the only problem is I don’t have the space to store a full sized bike in my life, yes sure I could kick the girlfriends mother out into a community care home but I’m too kind to put the elderly in homes, I find it rewarding to care for them hands on even though there grumpy old rags.
I decided to look into the foldable bike range’ the Dahon speed P8 to be precise, there easy to store in the home without the worry of theft and are easily carried onto public transport while taking up less room then a full sized bike. Gothenburg is very encouraging to people to get on there bikes with there endless bike paths and appealing routes it’s certainly encouraged me to think about it.
But there not so cheap so can only hope Santa drops me one this year!
So it’s that time of the year again when the population are annoyingly sick spreading there nasal interiors with the world, oh what a special time that is! I managed to survive a good 3 years without contracting the common cold leading me to be extremely overly confident that I was going to go another virus free year and avoid the general population of zombies roaming around the town centres rudely coughing into people’s personal zones.
My recent common cold which I can happily announce is over was a subtle one thank the lord but still a thorn in my rear end, actually the biggest issue with it was not such the cold but how I came about catching it, this one was personal about as personal as your neighbour taking a shit on your porch, you want to know the culprit? It was the girlfriends mother, now I wouldn’t be so bitter if this person was able to cover there mouth and use acceptable hygiene techniques but instead she decided to shower us with her germs with no respect for the people around, I thought this was only a problem with children and those with no arms! I guess I have to forgive seen as it is against the law to lock in-laws in cupboards or sentence to hanging :-/
But obviously like any other virus it caught up with my fiancé and 6 month old son, but don’t worry’ there recovering nicely apart from my girlfriends annoying cough which if carries on any longer I will be locking myself in a cupboard. I’m not the greatest person when it comes to sick people they can be quite irritating with there constant sniffling and slobbering but tomorrows another day so there’s still hope in keeping my sanity.
