Picture taken at my year 9 dinner which was also taken by Celine, thought that I needed a new header for the summer! What do you think of the new design? Better than my old one?


Sitting outside eating lunch and realizing that I haven't posted anything for ages.. again.. I was going to wait until I had access to a computer but it has been far too long. So here I am sitting in mums friends garden blogging from my phone.
If you follow me on Instagram you would have already seen this photo so I'm sorry it's just hard to upload lots of photos when I'm on my phone.
Okay so on Wednesday mums friends family and my family headed of to a theme park called 'Liseberg' was one of the best days I've had in a long time! Went on all of the scary rides, went in the highest freefall in Europe (147m) high I think it was.. Scary!!


I'm back! Sorry I haven't posted anything in the last couple of days I've just been so busy! I have been reunited with my family again! Feels so strange to have them around all of the time again but is also so good. On Monday we slept over at one of mums friends houses in Uppsala, yesterday we slept over at a beautiful little ocean town (see pictures down below). Today we will be going to a theme park with loads of scary rides which will be so fun!! We are going with another one of mums friends which we are also sleeping over at her house for two nights. I will keep you guys updated as much as possible!

perfect summer day

Another perfect day, Hanna slept over at my place and we didn't end up getting it of be until like 11.00. Then Josefine came over and we watched the rest of the movie 'Hairspray'. Ella, Josefine, Hanna and I then rode our bikes into town and had lunch at a restaurant called Thai Garden that had a great view of the harbor. After lunch we met up with Line and had a bit of a tanning session (I have actually gotten a little bit browner!) Then we met up with Martina, Filip and Ekblomb and went swimming! Fun but still quite cold.
Now I am at Hanna's house with the girls, we will be tenting for the night. I'm going to be so tired tomorrow!



Yesterday was my last day at school, ever in Sweden! It is actually so sad, I never thought that I would actually miss going to school. Well yesterday was a great day, after school a lot of us got together and went into town to buy ice- cream as we all got a voucher. Then we went to Lucas house and relaxed there for a while. Then at night quite a few from the class got together again and we ended up at my house watching the movie ‘ego’, one of my favourite Swedish movies. All in all was pretty much a perfect day, sad to say goodbye to so many amazing people but a great day. Going to miss everyone SOO much! Thanks for an AMAZING year!!!

year 9 dinner

Josefine, Ebba, Me, Celine and Line

Today we had our year 9 dinner it was a great night. Everyone looked gorgeous in their summer dresses. It is finally starting to feel like it really is going to end soon. I am so excited to finish and go back to my life in Australia but also very sad because I have to leave so many amazing people over hear behind.

Well I am going to be up nice and early tomorrow (6.00am) because we will be paddling with school and we must be at school at 7.15am, everyone will be walking around like zombies tomorrow, usch.

Everyone after our round of paintball. Was so fun but so scary! Quite a few ended up with bruises but luckily I didn't even get hit.

Yesterday my class (9B) and I went on a trip for a paintball session which was so much fun! Then we all had pizza for lunch and then just sat around and relaxed for a while.

After our paintball day out the whole class then re-grouped at Amina’s house for a BBQ dinner and then a few stayed over and tented in her backyard for the night which turned out to be super cosy.

Ingrid's ball

Today my cousin Ingrid had her ball, she looked absolutely gorgeous!

Was such a good day today, first we had sports day at school, then I went into town to buy my dress for the last day of school, then we went to have a look at Ingrid at her ball and then we went out for a great dinner. I’m actually totally exhausted now.

Tomorrow I will also have paintball with the class, then we will have a BBQ dinner and then many from the class will be sleeping in tents for the night which should be cosy.


last lesson in Sweden

So today was the last day of actual lessons at school before the summer holidays! Tomorrow we have our sports day, on Monday all of the classes have a completion with each other to see which grade is best at soccer and another sport that I'm not sure of the name in English and then at four we have our year 9s dinner. Then on Tuesday we are going paddling and then on Wednesday we will have our last day at school, not sure what we are doing though..
Today our class decided to have a water fight. Was so much fun! Everybody was absolutely drenched!

perfect day

I’m so sorry that I haven’t been posting in a while. I have just had so much to do and then on top of that I was sick yesterday. I found out yesterday that someone had hacked my email account so I couldn’t even log in to my account and delete it, so annoying because I have no idea what they are doing their either so if you get anything from this account it was NOT me.

Anyway enough of that, today was a great day. After school we rode to one of the highest points in town and took photos. Then at about 7.30pm Ella and I went for a 8km power walk which was quite relaxing and good exercise too. Now I’m going to try and get some sleep, super tired so will be updating you guys again soon.

Line, Ella and Josefine trying out some new moves.

Min resa

Jag ska berätta om min resa till Sverige.


Jag kom till Sverige med min mamma, dem två veckorna hon var har vi åkte runt södra Sverige och hälsade på varan familj. Efter det vi kom till Strängnäs, jag hälsade min nya familj for första gången och sen mamma lämnade mig och gick tillbaka till Australien till min pappa och två småbröder (Carl och Ben).


Jag kommer ihåg min första dag i skolan, jag har aldrig vart så rädd för ut. Jag kände ingen och kunde inte språket. Men det gick ganska bra för att efter dagen var slut jag hade fyra kompisar. Veckan efter kändes lite bättre men var ändå svårt för jag fattade nästan ingenting när lärarna pratade i klassrummet och jag kunde knappt läsa, någon behövde översätta hela tiden.


Jag kommer ihåg den första meningen jag kunde ’jävligt dåligt väder’, Ella, Hanna, Josefine och Celine lade mig det typ första veckan tror jag. Det var en bra första mening för att jag kan använda den nästan varje dag.


Jag kommer ihåg den första gången jag såg snö, jag var helt crazy, jag gick, nästan sprang runt och tåg jätte många kort när det var nästan ingen snö alls. När det kom snö på riktigt jag blev jätte glad för att jag aldrig hade sätt så mycket. Efter kanske en månad jag tröttnade på det, det var bara kallt och blött. När snön äntligen började smälta blev det is istället. Det var nästan värre för att jag ramlade hela tiden och det tog jättelång tid att gå.


Nu har jag varit i Sverige åtta månade. Jag har gjort jätte många pinsamma grejer i dem har åtta månade men har också ändras som en person. I början skulle jag aldrig ha vågat prata framför en grupp på svenska men har är jag, jag kunde aldrig tänka mig att jag kunde prata flytande svenska eller skriva på svenska. Men jag har inte lärt mig själv bara språket jag har lärt känner mig själv.


Det har är mitt tal som jag redovisade inför klassen. Jag är riktigt stolt over mig själv för det har. Den var den första svenska grejer som jag har redovisat på svenska och jag fick A! jag vet att det är inta alls perfekt men jag kan bara utvecklas. Var tycker ni om den?


spex foto

I totally forgot to upload a picture of my classes "spex foto". All the year 9s choose a theme and we all get dressed up in that theme, as you can hopefully see our theme was swimming/summer. Can you see me?
At the moment I have had loads of homework but by tomorrow it will finally be over because we have our last test and our last bit of homework. next week all of the grades will be set and then week after we only have a three day week, so they're are only 11 more days of actual school left until the summer holidays not including the weekends, can;t actually believe how fasts the year has gone!

today's outfit

So sorry for not updating for you guys in so long! I was going to yesterday but I have so much homework at the moment, sorry! But now I have so I hope you guys are happy. I loved my new top that I wore today, was so cute! Thinking of wearing a skirt tomorrow with it if it is warm enough!
