Traffic and lions

Yesterday when I was sitting in traffic on my way to work, I was wondering what other people think about when they are caught in traffic. Do they get angry or annoyed or do they perhaps take advantage of the time and have a language CD in the car - repeating "jag vill ha en banan" - "I want a banana" in Swedish. I must admit, i mostly get annoyed. I have to be at work at 8am and if i am not, more often than not, i miss out on a parking spot.

Ok, I see on other people's blogs their fabulous creative spaces. I thought i'd share my not-so-fabulous space below. Pretty impressive, huh! Something to strive for don't you think?

On an unrelated note, have you ever been run over by a 7 year old child? I am not sure if it's something to boast about, but it happened to me yesterday. Let me tell you, they hit a lot harder than you think. If it wasn't for my friend coming to my rescue i would have landed flat on my face.

Before I sign off, I thought I'd share this picture of my daughter and her take on modelling. In case you need help interpreting it - she is a lion! Rawwr!!!


  1. What a lovely surprise!! Another post already! Have you been bitten by the blogging bug?? hehehe.....
    Love the pic of your daughter in her boots!

  6. Eftersom Lota-Potta Maräng skrev på svenska så gör jag det också (-:

    Hoppas allt är bra med dig och att du inte jobbar ihjäl dig, då har jag ju ingen att promenera med på Tisdagar och Torsdagar(-:

    Du är så duktig Jennie, verkligen! Jättefina kläder m.m.
    Kram Eva

  7. Hi Melei Jen!
    How lovely that you are getting all these Swedish visitors. I just need the translation now!!
    If you don't already know, Miss Cherry Stew is the designer behind the Cherry Stew label, I own several of her pieces (all unique and very detailed) and have met her in person.
    You are developing a following!
