Moving back to Sweden

I can't believe the luck we've had so far with our move. But at the same time it is so much more complicated moving to Sweden than to England, and people in Sweden keep saying "People just walk in here, there is no stopping it!" Well now i know for sure that that's not true at all.

For example the waiting time to get a personal number in Sweden is 6-8 weeks, without this number you can't do anything. I mean it, you can't even get a library card. And the only reason Carl will be getting one is because he is working so he will need to pay Swedish tax eventually.

We have had some issues getting a flat because Carl doesn't have this number, i do, but i don't have a job in Sweden yet. Carl is the one with the job, i am the one with the number. But this has finally been resolved thanks to the greatest dad in the world.

So up to now our move has been going as smooth as it possibly could. Fingers crossed nothing bad happens the next couple of weeks. I can't wait till all the papers are signed, Carl has his number and he can stay in Sweden forever if he would like, till we have our flat and are proper set up.

Two weeks tomorrow, then we leave England - for now anyway.
