Tivoli




My home looks like a carnival, there are these kinds of lamps everywhere (what do you call them in English?). Lizette, the cat (named after my baby sister), keeps me company. So does Johan. Lizette waves hi to Charlotte tonight!

  16. oh yes, let's call them 'fairy lights' no matter what language we speak. in swedish they have a pretty boring name; 'ljusslingor' (light festoons/creepers - bad translation though).

  17. Ljustslingor is known as 'fairy lights' in the UK. It's the typical swedish descriptive word - I mean a Brit wouldn't know what the hell a 'cow catcher' is, heh heh. :D
