Get the shovel out

I haven’t written for a couple of weeks because I have been to visit my mum and dad as my mum is very ill now (it’s not so easy living hear and having no brothers or sisters to help to care of my parents back in England).

The first snow fell here while I was in England (but has since melted), and temperatures are below freezing at night and not much above freezing during the day, so there is now ice on the lakes.

Yesterday I had a lorry load of……..forgotten the English word for it, but it is called filling if I translate from Swedish.  It is crushed stone (a by-product from the local gold mine)

gravel floor

which I have to now shovel in to the new outbuilding and once I have compressed it down, it will be like concrete.

There have also been some fantastic displays of northern lights recently.  Here are a couple of pictures I took this evening just after it got dark.
