|Girly bits for my trip|
I'm back from my conference in Gothenburg, Sweden full to the brim of enthusiasm and passion for my profession again. A boost that was well needed indeed and despite being somewhat exhausted I feel a sense of new life and love for my work has metamorphosed out of a previous feeling of tedium and an un-inspired work ethic I have been suffering from over the past few months or so.
I managed to have a 4 hour window break on Monday afternoon when the lectures and seminars were unrelated to my specialism of neurology, so I tried to pack in as much of the city as I could and absorb a little of the local culture. The Swedish are just beautiful, friendly and amazingly clever at speaking English in amongst other languages. I loved people watching and pottering in and out of shops and a sweet antique market I happened to stumble across.
Here are some of the photo's that will remind me of my city exploits ...
There are many more I could
show bore you with but I'll save face for now and end with some yarn and pressie pleasure. I had to buy something for Alice of course, and these are some of the little local goodies that I purchased together with a sweet Barbapapa wash bag which I simply had to buy as I have told her umteen stories of my blue Barbapapa that I used to have when I was little which she is fascinated by. Did you have one of these in the 70's? they just make me smile when I see them again.
Anyway, you'll spot another cartoon creature that I purchased for her which made me smile about one of my childhood collections in this picture...
Yes, it's a Smurfette! Please tell me you had one of these ;0)
The name of the toffee filled chocolate bar (PLOPP) made me smile too. It was divine coming home and to see Andy and Alice again, I missed them so. It was also great to come home late last night to a clean and tidy home.
