moving to Sweden


Antoine & Leonor’s bedroom

Antoine & Leonor's bedroom

I did it! I finally took pictures of Antoine & Leonor’s new bedroom. You remember that we changed things around when Josephine joined us. My old office / guest room moved out and became another kids bedroom.

We now have one playroom, Romy has her own room {where Antoine used to sleep too until the change}, a bedroom for Antoine & Leonor and a corner for the baby in our {truly giant} bedroom. And as I often get asked how old the kids are when it comes to rooms and where they sleep: Romy is 9 {in just a few weeks}, Antoine 6, Leonor 3 1/2 and Josephine 8 months. {at time of this post}

So we do have a 6 year old boy and a 3 1/2 year old girl sharing a bedroom. As you know I am totally not into the gender stereotype – not much of pink and blue going on here.
Let’s have a look at the room and how we managed a neutral place where everyone feels comfortable:

a week end in Båstad

week end in bastad

It’s been a little while {again} that I shared some pictures from us. Our week ends, daily life, routines and and and…

Main reason is that I am one of those that are not really super inspired when the weather is grey, wet, dark, boring… It is not that we just hang out in bed on those days {ha that would be a lot of time in bed then} no no … we try to make the best out of it but I wonder who wants to see grey skies? You probably feel like you have enough of them anyway…

The Nursery – an update

the nursery - update
Promised is promised and here is the update of the nursery… this time with the baby.

I shared this part of our house in the beginning of September {here}, 3 weeks before Joséphine was born.

If you like you can play “find the difference”. And to be honest we could play this nearly every day since I always move around little things. One day I find it is better in this room, then I like it more there, then I want it pure… then a little more colour… and so on… depending on the seasons as well and the person.

Louisiana – museum of modern art

Louisiana - museum of modern art
Yesterday we took the train, went over the bridge… to Humlebaek.

Here you can find the Louisiana Museum.

On our list since we moved to Sweden and because we knew it has a large garden and lots of things to do & see outside we wanted to go on a nice day…

From Malmo it takes ±1hour by train, if you are in Copenhagen only 30 min and I can recommend it to everyone, with or without kids but definitely THE museum to go to as a family!

Louisiana - museum of modern art
There is something for everyone. Modern art and changing exhibitions, a huge garden with sculptures and a great view over to Sweden.

A lovely cafe/ restaurant with a big terrace {and that view}, trails, a super long slide, a wing dedicated to kids including art work shops. And not to forget an awesome museums shop {the best} over two floors!

{I would recommend to check the www before your visit to see what is on, but during Danish school holidays there will be work shops all day long and every day}.

We had a great day, the kids loved it and it is a must do when you are around here…

Our week end in pictures

week end in the south of sweden
Last week end we had summer. On Saturday that is.

Following the forecast all the time, I knew that Saturday would be sandal day. Days before I announced that straight after breakfast we will hit the road… being in Sweden you cannot miss the moment.

We went to Moelle. Our first stop. Ca 1 1/4 h driving from Malmo. When we arrived it was still chilly and I think everyone was afraid that my super warm weather anticipation was too enthusiastic…

Luckily the sky cleared up quickly and we had lunch – O U T S I D E! We walked around the harbour and decided to change settings and drive {10min} to Arild. A beautiful little village with lots of colourful houses, a cute harbour and an ice cream stop.

We then drove another 15 min to Farhult and found a sandy beach incl playground but also lots of wind.

The kids did not mind and were running up and down the dunes…

Last stop was Hoganas. {10 min drive from Farhud}

First a drink at the harbour and then diner O U T S I D E at the Garage, where they serve great home made burgers, salads and milk shakes.

We were back at around 8.30pm with the 3 sleeping kids in the back…
