What an AMAZING weekend we’ve had!!
One of the best in a really long time really.
I went to Stockholm on Thursday last week to spend some time with my cousin Karina and our grandmother. As always our granny prepared a feast for us that we struggled to finish!
Our grandmother is probably one of the best cooks ever!
She never fails to impress us with all the delicious food and desserts!
Thursday was a really fun day cus it has been quite a while ago since we had been in Fiskis, the “hood” I grew up in, and really chilled with old friends. Most of the time when I’m there I just end up spending time with my nan and maybeeee I’ll go out with a friend for a cigarette.
This time however was a lot different.
Karina and I went out to meet some friends and ended up hanging around the streets with 5 other guys that we have know since diaper times. The weather was lovely and it felt like a true summer day. Once the sun was setting we sneaked up to one of the building roofs and watched the sunset and chilled out with some music on the speakers, funny company, (I enjoyed a glass of wine) and some cigarettes.
Karina and I felt like real criminals looooool even tho it wasn’t even illegal or nothing. Or at least not that illegal anyway lmao!
I am really REALLY scared of heights so I never really went too close to the edge cus knowing me I would just get so stressed out and scared I would just jump off the building so I could get it all over with. I know I’m a real pussy when it comes to it but I swear heights just make me really freaked out and weak!!
So obviously the guys including Karina had to make fun of me and walk right to the edge and just made me overall nervous and nauseous!
Yes I get freaked out even when it’s not myself standing there…
We sat there for a while until it started to get a bit too cold and Karina had to drive back home.
I however was spending the night at my nans so I stayed and chilled with the boys whom after seeing me drink my glass of wine really wanted to get some drinks in, so whilst I was paying some other friends a quick visit they sorted some drinks out and I met them up later for some crazy fun in the streets of Fiskis.
This took me way back in time!
This is something I used to do when I was like 15/16 years old and I had actually forgotten how much fun it is!!!!!
Drinking, listening to our chosen music and just laughing until you get cramps and tears are falling down your cheeks!!!! It’s a Lil ghetto fun!!
What a day that was!!!! It will really stay with me in my folder of really good memories
On Friday I went to see 3 of my younger siblings at their mums house and God knows how nervous I was!
I really love these kids so much and to have their mothers approval was and is so important to me.
I baked a big chocolate cake with icing and it went down well with them as they all really loved it!
We had such a nice time and they showed me some baby pictures and told me about their childhood memories, and ofc about their current loves and links lmao.
Next time I really need to make sure I spend the night with them cus time flew by way too quick and we didn’t really feel done if that makes sense.
Saturday was a bit stressful cus I wanted to do so much stuff and had so much to be doing but not enough hours to get them done. I am a real time optimist and I like pleasing people, but that doesn’t really go as planned most of the time lool.
I met up with my girl Rahel in Slussen and had a drink on a rooftop terrace called Ljunggrens. It wasn’t the cheapest place but it was really cosy and chilled out. We were there when it was quite empty but by the time we were leaving people started to fill up the place.
It was really nice catching up with her as it had been such a long time since I got to really speak to her! That’s a big change from when she was living in London and she was the person I spoke to on the phone everyday.
On my way home I twisted my ankle and my plans for later that evening were ruined! The plan was to go salsa with, my cousin Karina and her boyfriend & Paow ofc. We however had to cancel.. But we will definitely go once I come back to town again.
The change of plans was not that bad anyway cus we ended up going to some drink up in Fiskis.
It started out like some great fun and people were in a really good mood!
It wasn’t even too cold or nothing
However with this many people from the hood and that amount of alcohol there’s bound to be some drama and my days there was drama!
One guy was soo wasted he punched a guys eye in!!!
The poor guy was bleeding right underneath his eye and it looked quite disgusting!
This obviously made other people angry and they stepped in which created more arguing and drink thrown in the air etc. Paow and I took a big step back and just observed. We ain’t getting involved but we ain’t missing it either lmaooo.
Most people left after this but a few of us just went for a walk and later just sat down and had some jokes and laughs.
We had soooo much fun despite all the drama and were able to laugh and joke around.
We didn’t get home until 4 am or something.
Now I know this post is a bit longer than usual but it was difficult getting it this short even!
Would’ve liked to share more details but I’m gonna cut it here.
Unfortunately we didn’t take many pics but here are some at least
Yesterday we went to the Swedish church in London with Fatou cus we had a meeting with the priest to arrange the details for Akeems christening.
Kim has been chosen to be one of the godmothers so it was really important for her to be there at this meeting.
The church turned out to be really beautiful and intimate and they have a lot of opportunities for the members of the church. The priest was also very kind and comforting so we reckon this is gonna be a really good christening.
After this we decided to go to the market in Camden town. The weather was really nice and hot so we decided to buy something at the food market and sit by the canal, there is so many different kinds of food to choose from however we all chose Thai.
We didn’t really find anything that we wanted or needed, except for Kim she bought herself two pairs of shoes and a necklace. We had a really good time, Fatou and I made fun of Kim the whole day and we all had great laughs.
We were all really tired and decided to go home around 5pm and once we got home; Kim and I had a nap. In the evening Kim decided to go out for a casual dinner with a friend but it later turned out that it was a date lol! she quite enjoyed herself tho and the food was AMAZEBALLS!
If you’re looking to have authentic Cuban food with some nice Latino music playing in the background then this is the place to go: Buena Vista
They have live music bands from Thursdays to Sundays that play Cuban son and it really feels like you’re in actual Cuba!
We highly recommend it!
Also the dish Cubanito which is absolutely delish! Followed by some Mojitos Yummie!
Stay Blessed y’all!
