Five months until Xmas... Christmas in July!

Time flies... It has been four months since my last Christmas blog post. We have Winter here in south-east Queensland at the moment so Christmas in July is really appropriate! Where we live we've had 5° at night/early in the mornings, but during the day the temperature rises to 20-25° which is really lovely. I do enjoy the cooler temperatures during Winter. 

Merry Christmas in July everyone!

♥♥♥



Oj, vad tiden går... Fyra månader sedan jag skrev mitt senaste julblogginlägg. Nu har vi vinter här i sydöstra Queensland, så Jul i juli är ju mycket passande. Där vi bor har det varit 5° på nättenar/tidiga morgnarna, men under dagen stiger temperaturen till härliga 20-25°. Vinterns kyliga temperaturer tycker jag verkligen om. 

God Jul i juli!

Nine months until Christmas Eve

...time flies when having fun!


Hi all,
just realised that it's only nine months until Christmas Eve, Where has the time gone?

We are almost at the end of Term 1 here at school. The Easter holidays starts at the end of this coming week. The kids only have four more days until they can enjoy some well deserved time off.

***

Vart har tiden tagit vägen? Det är bara nio månader tills julaftonen... Här börjar skolterminen gå mot sitt slut. Kidsen har bara fyra dagar i skolan innan påsklovet börjar, då kan de njuta av ett välförtjänt lov.

10 months until Christmas Eve


10 months until Christmas Eve 
and I'm watching Nigella's At My Table - the Christmas episode!

Yes, our Christmas rug is still out, 
as hubby will vacuum it today and put it away.


10 månader till julafton
och jag kollar på Nigellas julavsnitt från serien At My Table!

Japp, julmattan är fortfarande framme,
maken ska dammsuga den idag och lägga bort den.

Almost a Christmas WC... ♥


After Christmas, I kept the red going in our little toilet room. 

It still looks like Christmas I think, 
even if all the small Swedish Santas are packed away and back in the shed.

Perfect to keep the red going especially around Valentine's Day.


Pretty reds in different shades... ♥
and vintage medicine bottles and supplies on display.



A simple red and white show towel with the Swedish word 
Handdukar which means towels.


Two red runners hanging over the thin curtain rod
and a metal heart, 
which was a gift from a very good friend of mine.


In the mirror image you can see the pictures on the wall


Our toilet room is a very small space, 
but it's a room with plenty of character.

Soon it's time to bring back the all the different shades of blue...

♥♥♥
Fortfarande rött inne på toaletten.
Tomtarna är bortplockade och nerlagda i plastlådor.

Brukar ha rött ett bra tag efter jul,
runt Alla Hjärtans dag är det ju alltid fint med rött.

Snart dags att byta ut det röda mot det blåa.

Kram♥

Post Christmas Bedroom


Removed Christmas in the bedroom.
I left the curtains though... so now it's bright, white
and very relaxed!





After the white, I brought back some red again - in time for Valentine's Day.

The school year has well and truly started and I've been totally absorbed in the kids' homework as well as continuing to remove Christmas. Yes, you readcorrectly... I'm still removing Christmas. It's been a long process this year. Slowly but surely, I'm getting my house back to normal again. - in time for Easter, maybe!! 

I like keeping the red going after Christmas, especially to around Valentine's Day. It's so nice and warm. Speaking of warm... We've had a heatwave here in south east Queensland and it's been terrible. Too hot and too humid. This Viking does not enjoy the tropical climate we've been blessed with this week. Far out, it didn't matter if you had a shower or not. You were as sweaty after a shower - as before. Crazy!



Sovrummet i vit skrud efter jul.

Sedan blev det rött till Alla Hjärtans dag.

Värmebölja här i Brisbane.
Varmt o fuktigt.
Jättejobbigt.

On my Christmas cloud...


I'm still enjoying my Christmas decor.
I look around and feel like I'm still on my little Christmas cloud,
or maybe I should say in my Christmas bauble lol

The weather has been extremely hot,
and I have been cooling down in front of the Air Con.
I'm as far away from Sweden's snowy weather as you can get.


Jag njuter fortfarande av julen härhemma.
Ser mig omkring och det känns som om jag fortfarande 
svävar runt på mitt lilla julmoln, eller inuti en julkula kanske haha

Vädret har varit oerhört varmt,
och jag har kylt ner mig framför luftkonditioneringen.
Jag är så långt ifrån Sveriges vinter man kan komma.
