Halloween and Birthday Celebration

This weekend, I have visited my family in Löddeköpinge, celebrating halloween and my 31th birthday.

I love visit the sweet poodle Leo, since he always learn new stuff every time I visit him. This time, he managed to learn to, and enjoy, standing with all four feets on my arm (like Ulrik used to do). Leo is 5 years old now, but I remember him when he was a puppy:

Leo is the grey poddle, and Ulrik is the white one.
Cute, aren’t they?

Apart from meeting my family, I have also read Isabella Löwengrip‘s book Egoboost! – Blondinbellas överlevnadsguide för unga tjejer

In the book, Isabella tells us about her life as a young girl in Sweden, why and how she developed strategies for surviving and be strong, and advices other young girls how to survive and develop strong and independent egos.

The book is easily read, and I recommend every young woman to read it and get inspired.

Right now, I am viewing TWiT Live – This Week in Tech Episode 325 at http://live.twit.tv/
