My first contact with a musical was in the village where I grew up. There was a group of amateurs with musicians and theater- interested-peoples. Between the age of 14 and 21, I participated in four different musicals. I sang in the choir and sometimes I danced. The first one was a musical which involved the life of a famous swedish artist, Carl Larsson (1853-1919). No one belives me now when I tell them that I’ve been dancing can-can to the tones of Jaque Offenbach on a stage infront of 150 people! Another one was about the orphan Annie. I think they worked a lot to get (afford..) the rigthts to put up that one. It’s hard to belive but I think that we usually gave about 20 performances. The audience came in buses from the nearest town (60 kilometers). When I was about 16 I visited London (were there on a language school) and than I succeded in percuade my friend to go and see Sound of music with me. It was a moment I’ll never forget.After that I didn't have the opportunity to see any musicals, with proffesional singers live, until that evening in Stockholm when my husband and I just had got engaged and celebrated it with a visit at the theater Circus and saw Les Miserable.

The truth and nothing but...

I really love my new bathroom. Finally I can relax and take a bath .... no, I'm not telling you the truth. Not at all, I'm a liar. It isn't my spa. It belongs to a hotel I visited some days ago. Sometimes it's hard to know what's real and what isn't. For me it's important that I can trust in people around me.

My summer sum up in three photos

Only one week left! Then I will work again...
Have spent this summer by the sea, the lake and the river. All of them has been very good but in different ways. The late night with my husband and teenagers watching the sunset near the fire, talking and feeling that this is a moment to remember. The photo with the church in the background is taken on one of my "morning-walk- constitutional" along the river in my hometown. Before I will start working again we are going to visit my parents summerhouse one more time and I hope the weather will be good enough so we can go to "my" favorite beach were I spent so much time when I was younger.
