Allemansr├Ątten, or the Right of Public Access, is one of the unique joys of Sweden. It allows anyone to roam freely in the countryside, swim and travel by boat in someone else’s waters and pick mushrooms and berries in the forest.

Lingon Vodka......

As promised, here's an update on the fate of the Lingon berries we picked whilst we were at the cabin in September.

Snow glorious Snow!

Katrin kindly visited the cabin to make sure everything's OK & took this photo for us!

A musical interlude......

A bit off topic this, but I thought I'd share a photo of myself with the Beeston Big Band. I've played trombone with this fine group of musicians since 2003 & last April was asked to take over the musical direction. We held our Christmas concert last friday at the Boat & Horses in Beeston, the evening went down a storm with the band swinging through numbers from Glenn Miller & Count Basie. A big thankyou to everyone involved, my musical friends, our hosts at the Boat & Horses (where we rehearse), Tim Holyoake (the photographer) & of course our audience who helped us raise a few pounds for a local charity!
