The two girls who came over today reduced my 9 bags of kids clothing to 2, which made me very happy. I got laundry, dishes, dusting, vacuuming done and the bathroom cleaned. I also scanned all the pictures, moved the old website pages to the archives and started editing photos before heading into town for the movie. Plans got switched around at the last second and it ended up being just Emily and I. Which was fine, we had fun. Under the Tuscan Moon was really good; I had absolutely no expectations and hadn't read any reviews and enjoyed it very much although some of Diane Lane's strange pauses where dialogue would have been nice were a little weird, and the times she was called upon to laugh seemed very forced. I really liked the performances of everyone in the movie and the cinematography was stunning and there were several clever and moving scenes. Thumbs up from me, despite a predictable ending (happy, that is). I bet the book is way better.
After the movie we went to a new Tapas place on Stortorget called Mosaik, and all I have to say about that is WOW. Unbelieveably good food, snazzy atmosphere, not too pricey. 2 of the tapas dishes I got were so good I ordered them again. (artichoke heart and a shrimp scampi with pesto creme). Will DEFINITELY be going back there sometime.
I got home about a quarter to 11, and 15 minutes later heard the door bang open and Karin yelled, MAMA! VI ÄR HEMMA!! :) She came running for a big bearhug, and then proceeded to talk non-stop through the unloading, undressing, bedtime routine. :) Martin was so tired he just came and sat in my lap. It's good to have my family home safe again.
