On Thursdays, it’s game night with colleagues for the hubby (Mattias).

So on Thursdays, me no work because…

On Thursdays, it’s my turn to pick up our niece Shauna from school and supervise her cross the street over to the Kulturskola for dance class.

In a bit, I’ll be cycling to school and see Shauna off to her next thing. Then I cycle back home with some of her things and continue with this post. Then I cycle back once more to fetch her.

Since today is the last day of dance class, she was a bit sad because according to her it’s the best time of the week. Awww…

Hmmm. It would be a good idea to enlist her on next season’s dance class or something. An extra something she can look forward to when she goes back to school as a second grader. Until then…


Now I’m back home and my hyper niece is dancing happily with the other little girls and boys. It took about five or so minutes for the teachers at fritids to find her since she had decided to hang out in the school’s woody parts with a coupla friends. I was almost about to climb the hill too when somebody shouted that they found her and she’s running back to collect her stuff.

Oops alarm just went off, gotta go! Gotta cycle back to the Kulturskola to pick her up (15:00-15:45 hrs) and then we head home. Brb!


An hour later and newly showered, we’re cooking veggies and continuing watching “Raising Dion” season 2! 🙂 It was actually Shauna’s idea to have vegetables for dinner. “I really wanna learn how to cook!” she added. And veggies she got and help me cook she did!

Btw, Shauna also wanted to shout out that she had popcorn with her dance group. “And…. disco!” She’s happy happy. Shauna happy ≈ tita V happy too.


Here are also some photos on the way home and at home.
