Stress is really dangerous. I've realized that this semester and since I came back to Sweden I've been trying to relax as much as I can. It's very unusual for me to actually have a break and not do anything so I feel like I don't know what to do. Is it okay to stay in bed for one whole day? Isn't there something I have to do right now? I normally feel stressed about some work I have to do and. This is the first time in a long time I have got three weeks without anything (other than planning some concerts and babysit my friend Monica's kids) to do. So I'm consciously trying to do nothing (believe me, it's hard!)
Yesterday I met my good friend Are, who is Norwegian but moved to Stockholm last year. We have some ideas for next summer, maybe a biking tour? Then I went with my mum to the stable where she's riding, and out from there to our country house. And I've just been focusing on cutting grass, removing stones from our beach, and eating good food. It's very relieving to be around horses, kittens and fresh air from the sea sometimes. I'm enjoying it so much I don't want to leave.
Tomorrow is time for Östersund, and the kids shows. It's going to be a real adventure this time, because we are going to rehearse our new plot in 3 days, and then we go out for five shows in 2-3 days. Hopefully everything goes alright! I'll tell you more as it comes!
