… had quite a rough time with my “sorry ass” – so sitting by the PC hasn’t been an option for a while … but it doesn’t mean I don’t have things to share with you.
So I start backward… Sunday evening.
My best friend (for over 30 years) Bärbel and I decided to enjoy the evening out at our picturesque fishing harbor, Brostahusen. 4 km/2,5 miles from Landskrona city center. It takes about 8 min with bus #5.
Bärbel hasn’t had a really great life for nearly 1,5 years … mental illness … but after her last hospital visit (3 weeks) she has come home like the Bärbel I knew for most of my adult life. A fantastic change. They did a change to her medication and add Lithium, her level of Lithium in the blood was near to none.
And what a change to her appearance and appetite on life. For over a year she has hardly left her apartment … now she is out and about every day and .. she shops, that is a really good sign.
What a difference a pill can do. Unbelievable, like day and night. She doesn’t only excite anymore … she lives.
So now we have to start to do things together again … and enjoying life.
It started with her 70’s birthday celebration in Båstad over Midsummer – it was just FANTASTIC, but I will come back to those days.
Sunday evening was beautiful but very wind … pleasant in Landskrona, but out by the sea in Borstahusen … a bit too much.
Visited Borstahusen with my UK blogging sister Sue@WordsVisual a year ago, also very windy (more like storm) … but without the sun, it was more like an autumn evening. We had a very nice evening anywayÖ great food … excellent wine … a lovely company. (post: “The Royal Visit“)
“Hamnkrogen” (Swedish only) always delivers great food, good wines, and a fantastic service. We both delighted ourselves with their famous fish soup, it’s so full of different kinds of fish and topped with freshly hand-peeled prawns. We were sipping on a glass of French white wine, Esprit de Lalande Sauvignon Blanc. A perfect match.
For me a dessert is a must, even if I really had eaten enough … so I went for their Rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream … and a cappuccino.
I felt so good until I started to move around … then I notice how stuffed I was. Could hardly move.
Happily, we had to walk to the bus-stop, we felt that we didn’t feel for waiting on the sunset … so we took a little detour … and the wind had come down a bit! When the bus arrived I was feeling okay.
“I get way too much happiness
from good food.”
