Weekend of fabrics.

This weekend was spent at K’s place which he will be leaving behind as he move into our place in Malmö. It is located not too far from Gothenburg in an area of Sweden well known for its’ textile industry. Saturday was spent visiting the oulets of Kasthall, Ekelunds, Pelle Vävare and we got some nice things of high quality and low prices. The Kasthall rugs are splendid and I am thrilled about the Little My blanket I bought to Ove the dog. Organic cotton and eco friendly bamboo material will tickle his fancy.

We took some great nature walks in the forest nearby up in the “mountains”. Good training and the atmosphere was fairy tale like. Or like the Hunger Games forests.

In a few days it has been 3 months since he popped the question and it feels as 3 yrs or 3 days at the same time. I still stop and wonder how I can be so lucky and I savour each second.

Off to catch the train back home to Malmö getting ready for week number 3 of the lifestyle change plan, heavy work load and hopefully looooots of sunshine. And even though I hate leaving K after the weekend it feels pretty ok this time around as soon the long-distance thing will be over.

Worth repeating peeps: good things come for those who wait.
