I am feeling so inadequate this Christmas. I have simply had no time at all compared to last year, when I baked smashing saffron bread with the mum-in-law, made cinder toffee, knäck (Swedish toffee), and what not. This year, I am stooped over my books and notes and have to be, or I´m in trouble by tenta-time! The husband has told me he´ll manage and not to worry (“I´ll tell you when it´s time to come to table”), and I don´t, but I feel like I´m not pulling my weight. Today, I attempted to make cinder toffee for a friend´s son, who has been supplied with it the last years, and I burned the entire batch! No more syrup in the house, so he´ll have to do without. [sigh!] Oh well.
I have found a few places to study at besides the university itself. The library is no option – too many books, which is not good for my air pipes. Vetenskapens hus, the house of science, is a kind of branch study hall downtown for the university, where they have popular science lectures, meetings, chess tournaments, and whatever, really. It´s like an indoor square, where one can sit and study, with a café/lunch/dinner place next door. The opening hours are very generous.
Opening hours are only ten to four at the museum, but they have a very cosy, very Christmassy atmosphere. I like to stretch my legs after a few hours reading, so walking from one place to the other is perfect, really.
I am linking up with Bleubeard & Elisabeth for T Tuesday, who has made the most impressive French Toast I ever saw (with eggnog, too, no wonder it was such a success!). Happy T-Day and a Very Merry Christmas to you all! 🙂
