Aug 4, 2011 - Tuesday 2nd- Day trip to Landscroner

Tuesday 2nd We get up and Marie and Michael have already left for work. The plan for today is to get Jenny’s furniture and other items that her mum has had in storage for her to either get rid of or to sell. The stuff is all in Landskroner but we need the address and a key to get in and the only people that have keys are her sister (who we still haven’t seen yet –Annie) and her Mum. Where things get a little strange is Jen tries calling her mum – no answer and then sends a message- once again no answer, so we assume her mum is at work....

Jul 19, 2011 - Saturday 16th- Karnavalen

Well today is the main day of the festival, today is parade day. Was a bit of a late start once again, I think it was about 12-1 when we actually left the flat. Went to the supermarket and Jens card isnt working, keeps saying wrong pin. Went back and looked it up the transactions on the computer and Jen called her bank who told her there was nothing wrong with her card. The girl on the phone did inform us that the card had been used at 7am that morning but it clearly wasnt us- we were asleep till 10! Weve had to cancel her card and transfer...

Jul 19, 2011 - Sunday 17th- BAck to Marie and Michaels

Well now Im pretty happy, Last night to get cash out the first ATM wouldnt give me cash and the reason being "unable to connect with bank". I thought that it may have timed out so tried again but with the same result so we tried another atm that worked. Just checked internet banking and it appears that the first two attempts (which I didnt get cash for)have gone through! Emailed my bank manager and she is looking into it. We were up early and keen to get out of there as Jens Dad and Karin chain smoke in the appartment and was starting to...

Jul 17, 2011 - Friday 15th- Karnevalen

OK, so this is the big highlight for Jenny. Our trip was all planned around this festival in her home town. Its pretty much alot of concerts by local bands and performers over three days. Jen was really looking forward to bumping into old friends while wandering around the town throughout the festival. Gotta go, will finish this later and add some good photos (worth waiting for I promise!) So sorry, Ive been a little slack with the updates over the last couple of days, for starters we ran out of credit on the phone so had to go find a store...

Jul 15, 2011 - Thursday 14th- First day of Karnevalen

Another late start with breakfast at 11 - its starting to become the norm so far! Packed our bags and headed off to Landskrona. Jen took us the long way so she could show me where she grew up, old school and hang outs. Stopped off at the supermarket for a few supplies and bumped into her uncle who didnt even know she was in town. He is a bouncer at a club in town so will catch up with him later :) then headed to Jens old mans place where we will be staying for Karnevalen. Karnevalen is a big party in the town over 3 days with rides and...

Jul 12, 2011 - Tuesday 12th July- Swedish car show

HAd to head out to get more credit for the internet for work and so I can keep doing these journal updates. The buggers here wont let you add credit online or over the phone, you have to actually head into one of their stores to do it which sucks! Anyway, headed to the shops did that and grabbed some stuff for lunch at home. After lunch we all piled into the Pontiac and went and caught up with Jens granparents again before heading to a car show. I was quite interested to see what a car show in Sweden was like after always going to ones at...

Jul 1, 2011 - 1st July

Marie took Jen to the doctor and has to go back at 3:30 to see her again. Put our plans back a bit to see Jens dad as we were originally planning to be there at 3. Marie and Michael got the Pontiac out and we went for a drive to their shopping centre so Jen could have one of these tasty spuds that she goes on about at home all the time. Not really seeing to much at the shops that I like and there isn’t really too many brands that I recongnize either. Anyway, the Pontiac is great and Micheal loves driving it FAST. They don’t get it out very...
