Strandmamman‘s last Friday theme “Månadens fynd” could be translated in two ways from Swedish to English; either as the Bargain or the Find of the month. I choose to interpret it as the find of the month because I want to share the following with you:
My mother and I were looking for some cool 70’s textiles in the cupboards the other day when we came across two old handbags and look what we found inside (too bad we didn’t find any textiles though):
My finds from an old handbag: two restaurant bills from Hotel Lundia in Lund (30th December 1980) and Elysée in Malmö (7th February 1982) and a return train ticket Eslöv – Lund (18 SEK) (30th December 1980) (I guess the person (my aunt?) took the train from Eslöv to Lund to have dinner at Hotel Lundia the day before New Year’s Eve in 1980!)
My maternal grandfather’s 60th birthday was celebrated at Elysée in Malmö – the fondue restaurant! The wine cost 55 SEK, and I think that 5 adults had the fondue which would make it 47,70 per person. The restaurant still exists but nowadays the fondue costs 145 SEK!
O and I had lunch at my grandmother’s place on Thursday – fried herring (fresh herring, not salty) & mashed potatoes! She thought it was a pity when I told her that we had eaten mashed potatoes yesterday, but we looove that dish and didn’t mind at all to eat it again*! After the apple crumble dessert, she opened the door to one of her linen closets and gave us a few old but beautiful table cloths:
Unfortunately I won’t have time to check out the other Friday bloggers today since we are going to the summerhouse in the morning but I will be back on-line after the weekend and hopefully have time to read everybody’s Friday posts and answer your comments on the fish finger-post… Here are the other Friday participants:
