I'm sorry, dear reader, but you come to this blog for the descriptions of the songs....
Cheese and surroundings you say?
oh, OK then! Last evening the 4 of us in our palatial apartment, and that interloper Elaine Dove from eurovisionireland.net, all decided to go out and explore the so-called "rough" neighbourhood, and this is, of course, Rough by Swedish Standards. We trotted off down Admiralsgatan at a pace that Elaine's lovely cheap shoes would allow, and found ourselves at the lovingly entitled Sultan Palace where, they told us, that the All you can eat Buffet was a barmy 99SEK (£9.90).
Not one to shrink from a challenge and, indeed, not strangers to food, the 5 of us delved into their Feta and their salad and their meat ( well Roy did the Veggies) and their lovely Pasta dishes - and their Tuborg beer, till we had eaten our fill. ( as opposed to eaten Phil, which I would not have liked at all let me tell you). You had to roll us out of the place as we paid, though for me, that's not that much of a challenge.
Some of them went off to Eurocafe *and* Euroclub (the gadabouts) - Garrett from Eurovisionireland and I went via the local Co-op for Diet Coke (to which I have an addiction) and chocolate. God damn fine Swedish Chocolate that I can't pronounce but the strawb one has actual bits of Strawb in it, now for a diabetic, this could be death, but I injected myself with plenty and fell into a chocolate sleep of lovelyness!
Our Apartment is also lovely, it's actually someones house and she has let it to us 4 "as is" - including all the acoutrements of her own life lovingly locked away or left out with do not touch on them. It has a living room of massive proportions, a kitchen with all the comforts of home, a table in every room with chairs and just lots of homely charm. Lena, our hostess, wants to meet us at some point as she too is "in media" - I think we might just scare her!!
