Every Friday I pack up my Stockholm apartment. Itโ€™s not that much work obviously, the whole purpose of having a set place for my workweek was to get away from completely living in a bag. There are little things, like clearing the kitchen counter, making sure there are no stinky things (usually cheese) in the fridge, emptying the dishwasher that I ran the night before, that sort of thing. Even though itโ€™s just me here, and Iโ€™m not the kind of guy who leaves food out, I do think itโ€™s a lot nicer to come back to a clean space. Somewhat clean, at least โ€“ I still need to get myself a vacuum cleaner…

I like it here, itโ€™s a nice space, this apartment. I get things written, or translated as it were, while Iโ€™m here. It has become a positive space, and I hope Iโ€™ll get to keep it when my second hand lease runs out, which is mid-February. Ah, the joys of finding a place to live in Stockholm…
