In a couple of weeks time will I be flying up to Stockholm to visit one of my best friends and enjoy Cirque du Soleil’s production in tribune to Michael Jackson – the Immortal World Tour, the first days in November.
Back from Stockholm will I only have about 18 days and then it’s time for my annual 12 days trip to Belfast, Scotland and Dublin – in the end of November. So I needed to take “time out” to fix what I had promised.
Great to be back. It really is. Hope I have been missed a little bit *smile …. Notice that I’m fishing now !!!!!
Haven’t been back to my mum until now – and this post is based on the photos I caught when go budget shopping during my last visit. It was Saturday and the rain was heaving down – but after lunch it stopped and off I went. Took the road across the railway – and I saw this a reflection of the railway crossing in the rain puddle – stood there playing around for a while – suddenly the alarm bells went off … nearly died, must have jumped half a meter in the air, a Pågatåg was coming – so the long leg first of the tracks.
Not much more happen during my shopping trip – the streets where nearly empty – only a couple of weeks ago they would be bursting with tourists. The town was abandoned – met only a few cars and few pedestrians. The hotels that were full booked now have signs up saying they have free rooms. One of the Swedish high street fashion shops, LINDEX (english) , has teamed up with the Italian Fashion House “Missoni” - fashion for all ages, kids and accessories – there shop windows are full of their stuff – so I had to take a photo of one of the bags. Wonderful stuff.
The summer is over and the autumn is definitely here.
NETTO reminded everybody that it’s time to plant our spring bulbs now – tulips, crocus and daffodils. Shelve after shelve with bags.
It was an extremely windy day, but on the other hand – it’s always windy in Simrishamn… but I manage to make it back home to mum’s before the rain came back. It was a very pleasant walk – but I found a little casualty on the way home, a little bird on the pavement under a window. I guess that the little thing has flown into the window and broken his neck. It really hurted to see the little bird.
So sad – sure that somebody was waiting for him/her .. somewhere.
