A photo a day.
My story. And my family's. Life in Stockholm, Sweden. Holidays in Australia, Canada and where ever else we can manage.

Garbage in Canada
One of the things I love about the Canadians is the way they put stuff out on the nature strip for anyone to take. You see it the night before garbage puck up or on long weekends. If it is in the side of the road it is up for grabs. A great example of re-using and a habit I have often wished was more widespread.
Tonight Makaila and I went for an evening walk and came home with these two, a rock light and a lightshade and feeling like thieves but very please with our findings!!
An Aussie living in Stockholm with a Canadian and two beautiful little tri-citizens.
Why are we in Sweden I hear you ask..... because this is where we want to be, for now. But life is not static and tomorrow is not predictable, who knows where we will be the day after tomorrow. Probably still here.
Nic's News is about me, my family and friends, my daily life, holidays, outings, adventures, my trials and tribulations.
I started writing for my mum, to bring her closer to her grandchildren, to make her a part of their life or them a part of hers, and I think of her every time I write a new post. It is for my sisters too, and the rest of my family, for Ty's family in Canada, as well as for all the wonderful friends I have, both in Australia and in many other parts of the world. It is for anyone wanting to know more about our life.
In time I have also come to write for the audience that has somehow stumbled across my blog and who come back regularly to read what I am writing. It is a curious thing, to be a global citizen, with roots in three continents, experiences and impressions from near and afar. We are a melting pot, a family with three citizenships, and many, many influences.
I have played with my blog over the last couple of years, experimented, tweaked and toyed with it, used it to develop my writing, my research skills and work out my own style. It has been a fantastic too and IF you are curious enough you will see all that in my writing and in the topics I choose.
If you stumbled across my blog because of an interest in Sweden then you might want to check out Live In Sweden.se where I blog on less personal matters, and more about life in Sweden. This site has been a long time in the making but gradually it is getting to a point where I feel really proud of it, and I'm excited about where it is going!!
Whatever and where ever you read, I hope you enjoy and love to hear your thoughts, comments, ideas and opinions. Or just drop in and say "hi!".
