My parents and I spent Wednesday, Thursday, Friday in Stockholm. We were delayed two days by illness, but we finally set off. Wednesday mother and my grandparents went to IKEA and bought bedsheets. Thursday we all drove to Sigtuna to have tea at Tant Bruns (literally Aunt Brown's.) Aunt Brown is one of three women who feature in Elsa Beskow's beloved children stories published between 1918 and 1947.

At the doorway to Tant Brun, I met two elderly gentlemen backpackers. One of them said to the other, "Is it this door or is it the one in the front?"
"Yes," I said, dropping in on their conversation to help them along. "That's the right door."
One of the gentlemen backpackers looked at me. "Painting your lips?"
"Yes, I am." I slipped my cherry red lipgloss into my coat pocket.
"Looks nice," he said and ducked inside.
