Nuts! I knew there was something I'd forgotten!

 

A few more from the last couple of days. All generally amazing and I'm now in the town we're most likely to move to. It's genuinely stunning here. Lots of holidaying Germans too, so brushing off my rusty German too.

Nobody needed to see the mankini 😄

 

It's a place called Virserum, in northern Kalmar, in south eastern Sweden. The first photo there is actually from the school carpark - speaking to the kindergarten summer school class (on a tour of the school with one of the teachers), they'd been in for a swim yesterday morning as a class, as a part of their normal activities. On the far side of the lake is a ski slope, which is used extensively by the school in winter. They actually teach fishing as an activity that the kids can choose and there is an ice hockey rink too. It's a different life.

Went for a swim in my little stream the other day - cold as balls! (The water comes off the Brecon beacons). Not as pretty as your pics either.

The first photo is the view of the town from the ski slope. The second two photos were this afternoon's swim in the lake. It's absolutely perfect for taking kids in there as the water is a uniform 1.1m deep the whole way across the bay. 

 

The air temp is close to 30c and a third swim will be happening later!

I had a meeting with the district manager of a large harvesting company today. He says that whilst it would be easier for me to start as a driver for a company first, starting out self employed with a machine is doable. I probably need to harvest 6000 cubic metres of first thinning annually to make a good living.

When are you hoping to move J
