The Faroe Islands

A few images from the absolutely fantastic Faroe Islands that we visited in the end of June. Really hoping to go there soon again!

Two little piggies

Since this is a blog I’ll also use it for other things than writing down that sad part of my life, and here’s a post of another kind.

The Björklund Lehto family was expanded a bit two days ago when Kili & Fili entered our home. I’ve missed having these little talkative creatures around since our little Berris passed away, so it’s good to once more have adorable guinea pigs with us.

Kili was the reason why it happened at all. I fell for him a couple of weeks ago when spotting him in the pet store where we were getting some hay for our bunnies. I couldn’t get him out of my mind but decided to try forgetting him anyway, what with a bunch of bunnies and a hamster at home it might be a bit crowded already. This week he was still at the pet shop, and it ended with me not getting proper sleep one night, arguing with myself about how it wouldn’t be great to bring more pets around the house. Well, seems like I did a bad job arguing the downsides… And when my husband said I should think of how much in guinea pig love I was, well, then it was really settled. Guinea guys it was!

Fili was then chosen out of the two guinea pigs remaining in the store, since guinea pigs should not be kept alone. He is such a sweetheart! While Kili seems to be the boss while also being adorable and cuddly (though for a shorter moment of time), Fili seems to enjoy hanging out on the sofa for a longer time and is less cautious when on the floor. Or how about yesterday’s cuddle marathon of an hour, I think he broke any previous guinea pig cuddle record I’ve had. Maybe he is just too terrified to object the cuddling sooner than that? Time will tell 🙂 They are adorable and I am very happy that they’re part of our family now.

Long time no blog.

So I have this blog that I rarely use and this morning I started thinking, why not make something slightly more creative out of it. So I will. Starting this week I will share a chapter of my life. For now, my life these past 20 months in a few pictures.

Cruella is a furry member of our family since February 2014.

When going to a pet shop to buy hay in June 2014 I ended up coming home with this little one instead. We named him Tyrion.

I married the most beautiful person on earth.

The Blue Box

Music Posted on Mon, November 11, 2013 12:24:28

My new album The Blue Box by Once There Was has been released. You can find it at a number of places, but why not visit for a download or two. You can buy the album from the webshop at that page.

The Blue Box is also available for listening at Spotify, iTunes and Deezer.

I’m very pleased with the artwork for this release. The photo I’ve worked with was taken by my father a number of years ago. It saddens me that he’s no longer around, and I ‘m keeping his memory close in many ways. Writing music is one of these ways.

Time keeps flying away. A furry little one has found her way to our home. That happened by the end of September already, so by now she’s settled in quite well although she and her “brother” needs to learn to get along a bit better.

Beto Vazquez Infinity

Some news about my position in Beto Vazquez Infinity:

From now on, due to limited time on my behalf, I’ll continue working with the band as a guest singer instead of working with the band as one of their lead vocalists.

This means I’ll participate on a much lesser number of tracks on future releases. It also means that despite the lack of time I’m these days constantly experiencing, I will still have the privilege to keep collaborating with this wonderful band, just at a little slower pace.

Summer so far has been very Swedish with lots of rain mixed with a few sunny days. Rain doesn’t bother me much apart from when taking the bike to and from work, which I do rather often.

I work a LOT this summer. At a care centre for elderly and also I have a writing job that I can’t tell much about just yet. Finding time for vocal recordings on top of this seems a bit tricky at the moment, but let’s hope I’ll manage to do something within that field soon since there are people waiting for me to get things done.

I long for September. I’ll definitely need a month off by then. 🙂 But these jobs are both lovely in different ways, and I feel fortunate to be able to work within these different fields.

Also, the view when going home from the work at the care centre is quite lovely. At least when it’s not raining. 😉
