I´m a bit late as usual on Mondays. Today I drove to Skara and bought a couple of bed sets and a warm blanket that my mother can use when she´s here. I always lack blankets here. As soon as they look a bit sad I give them to my dogs to have in the doghouse when I´m at work. For some reason they always drag the blanket outside and soaks it in either the rain or the snow. I can´t for my life understand why they do so though.






Nowdays when buying bed sets over here one never gets the sheet one sleeps on, is it called in sheet? Why?? Those has to be bought extra and that really annoyes me. It´s just a way to make more money ofcours. It´s also impossible to get the same color on those sheets as on the rest of the bedset. Perhaps the one ordering this is color blind? But I didn´t know there were so many color blind persons in this country and that they all have the same job :-) :-)




I´ll make this blog short because now the olympics has started for the day and we have a real chance of a medal in womens cross country skiing.

Have a great day now!

Tjänare Nina!
Tja, ställer hon nu upp och hjälper till så tycker jag nog hon är värd en filt :-) :-)

Ja Kalla är helt otrolig! Kunde inte gjort det bättre själv :-) :-)
Ha det gott!

Hejsan Tyra!
Jo, det dök upp en tunn skärva av blå himmel igår, men då var solen på annat ställe :-)
Ha det gott!

Hi Joyce!
I can´t understand that either. But they probably make a lot more money, because the sheets aren´t especially cheap either.

We got our first Gold medal today :-) :-)
Have a great day now!

Christer, that dog is sticking his tongue out at you. I'm guessing you picked for him the wrong colors again in bed linens. I'm so glad my wife has that job as I wouldn't know what to shop for. All I know is she must have figured things out because the bed we sleep in is always comfortable. You're right about the Olympics. Here they start at 7PM and last till midnight. I have to go to bed earlier now as staying up late makes for a long day at work. I thought the pairs short program in skating delightful. Really fun to watch. China looks like they have to win though. Flawless performance! Enjoy!

Hi Z&M!
I think he´s actullu licking away tree splinters from his nose :-) He won that stick over his brother and was very proud I can say :-)

I had no chance of seeing the shortrack, but cross country skiing i so much bigger over here. If I´m not mistaken the curling starts today :-) Our Ladies are amongst the best in the world :-)

Have a great day now!
Christer.

Hi Splendid!
Well I though she deserves to have a blanket when she´s going to sleep :-) :-)

He was quite happy there, since he finally got that stick :-)
Have a great day now!

The sheets don't match? You mean you buy a top and bottom sheet and they don't match in color? That is really odd. Everything comes in set here. Two sheets and the pillowcases if you wish. Countries all seem to do things a bit different.

Thanks for the photo of your dog..
It's funny how I always have small dogs now when I was raised with very large ones.
Stay warm..your Mother is going to appreciate that you have made things comfortable for her! :)

Hi Mona!
Yes! I can´t for my life understand why they have started to do like this. It´s seldom they have the same colrs on the different sheets. It´s just so stupid!

We had a small dog when I grew up, now I have only big ones :-)

One never knows with mothers :-) :-)
Have a great day now!
Christer.
