Free at last!

My holiday has started! Four long weeks ahead of me and no plans what so ever. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do for a living. But the last months has been rough and I need a good rest.

One of the best things about living in Sweden is that we get a lot of time off. Everyone has five weeks payed holiday every year. Since I'm employed by the county and turned 40 a few weeks ago I get an extra week and a half per year. Much appreciated, thank you!

Earlier this week Paula tagged me for a meme. I'm supposed to answer the following five questions.

1. What was I doing ten years ago?
Ten years ago I was a student preparing for my last year in collage. I majored in handweaving and thought that I would spend the rest of my life next to a loom. The truth is that I haven't done any weaving in six years.

2. Five things on my To Do list today
Finish my breakfast. Go to IKEA. Make dinner. Phone my mother. Work on my TIF challenge piece for July.

3. Snacks that I enjoy
Fruit! Right now my favorites are strawberries and watermelon. Olives! Smoothies! Icecream!

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire
Share my wealth with my family and friends. Travel, travel, travel!

5. Places I’ve lived
I have lived in eight different places in Sweden and in London UK. Now I'm planing to move again but I'll stay in the same area this time. I went to see my new flat yesterday. It's three times bigger then where I live right now and I will have a sewing/art room. The room is really tiny so it seems a bit ambitious to call it a studio but never the less I'm very excited about it.

Paula also nominated me for an award. Thank you Paula! I'm very flattered.

The rules for receiving this award are:
1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog.
2. Link to the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the people you’ve nominated.

I'm taking the easy way out and nominate every blog on my blogroll for the award. Feel free to join in on the meme too if you like!

The photos are from my trip to Gotland in June. Read more about it here.
