    • Thanks for asking, I think there has been a little release – but I think there is a chance, nextt week I will add one more pill – but I feel a little strange from taking the pill.
      Me too … I think it’s a fun and exciting way to sell Sweden. Morning hug..

  1. Hihihi. When I saw this information on FB first, I couldn’t help but giggle. You see, there is a certain Swede that gave me a LOT of material to complain about Sweden during our online conversations, and whenever I see this number I’m tempted. There was plenty of good stuff too, so I’m saving him for a book 😉

      • Not yet and I don’t plan to, my comment was more of a joke. I used to talk to a Swedish friend for years online. He told me a lot about Sweden and himself. I have some complaints. 😀

      • Okay ….. now I understand. I thought you had already dialed.
        How can you have complaints when you never visit Sweden????!!!!

      • Hhahhah, I did visit Sweden – with the ferry from Denmark for a few hours. 😀 But I’m teasing you, I don’t have complaints over Sweden as such, only about this individual. And yet he is a product of the environment, isn’t he? 😉

      • Very good ….. at least you have walked on Swedish soil. There is loads of things that could be better in Sweden, but in overall we are very spoiled compared to other countries. And there is always people that love to complain and there is always people that enjoy being a bit difficult.
        But we all have the right to be different in our own sway. I suppose he lives abroad today, that’s the right thing to do .. if you don’t like where you live … move. *laughing – I’m sure he will be a great character for a book of yours.

      • He is a character all right. He didn’t complain about Sweden at all, I think he loves his country and still lives there. If anything, he used to put down other nations. But that is him. There are SO many others things I love about Sweden, especially Pippi – my all time favourite heroine – and Ingemar Stenmark. He was a hero in Slovenia for skiing on Slovenian Elan skis. 🙂 A warm hug in your direction!

      • Okay, so he is one of thouse … met his type too. Ingmar Stenmark … he is still going strong – he won celberity dance competion on TV last year .. he couldn’t dance, but all his fans vote from me.
        Pippi, she one FAB girl … also still going strong all over ther world. Spring hug back!
