A short picnic after a night's camping, every night we intended to leave early, and after both training and eating and swimming and feeding and walking etc we always left at around 11am
We only had 2 short periods of rain while other parts of Sweden flooded, this night was one of them, we stayed ina sort of sports camp dormitory with no one there. We had the whole place to ourselves, even the showers...and also a small tub we use for washing up!

Austria has been heaven. The weather has been superb. Hot sun every day and Åsa and Chris have a huge pool just to top it off. we have spent more than a few days training then lounging by the pool. The pool is not so child friendly so we have a large plastic bucket for Benji to splash around in. Åsa has been the hostess with the mostest, cooking us some delicious meals and planning loads of fun activities. The photo on top was at an Austrian restaurant neslled high in the hills that surround Lochau where we endulged ourselves with a traditional Austrian dish from this area, called käspätzle. A cheesy doughy affair and it is absolutely delicious!

A report from Austria...as you can see Benji checked in and managed to get to the gate on time...just! Crawling to Terminal 5 was not easy, Sara are I are not used to crawling that far! Needless to say his very first flight was smooth as he slept the whole way!

Now I know what you are all thinking out there, wasn't my father just here in Sweden? So what is a photo of him and I doing on the blog? Are the two of us sitting in a tree discussing property in New Zealand? Is this another discussion about footballing gossip? Has he just found out that Leeds have dropped down another division?
Although the likeliness and similarities are uncanny, (I personally think my fathers chest hair is longer than this Orangutan pictured! maybe my facial hair is not as tidy either?), however jest as you may, a wee film about our trip to an African Zoo park is on it's way to you loyal SFW blog followers out there.
