My International love fest contintues

We are counting down the time until we moved back to Stockholm yet my International love fest continues.

At International Families Day 2016 at the UK Defence Academy.

I know there are a few International students at the Swedish Defence University in Stockholm. It would be great if we bring them all together with their kids to share their food, music, dances and traditions.

And we’re off to Bath!

I have been to the Christmas Marketing In Old Town Stockholm once. I will be sure to go this year and if there are other “famous” Christmas Markets around Sweden I want to visit those too.

5 nations represented.

And even my Swede got in the spirit at the end of our ladies lunch at Beckett House.

70’s-themed supper club dinner.

And this year keeps rolling on with yet another fabulous Supper Club. I will definitely be taking that back to Stockholm with me.

Gothenburg has been experimenting with shorter working days – but the policy isn’t cheap

During the first 18 months of the trial the nurses working shorter hours logged less sick leave, reported better perceived health and boosted their productivity by organising 85% more activities for their patients, from nature walks to sing-a-longs.

However, the project also faced tough criticism from those concerned that the costs outweighed the benefits.

Centre-right opponents filed a motion calling on Gothenburg City Council to wrap it up prematurely last May, arguing it was unfair to continue investing taxpayers’ money in a pilot that was not economically sustainable.

Saved from the axe at the eleventh hour, the trial managed to stay within budget, but still cost the city about 12 million kronor (£1.1m; $1.3m).

Statistics Sweden confirmed at 7.47am on Friday that the population of Sweden has hit the ten-million mark.

“The main reason the population is increasing faster than what was thought a few years ago is because immigration was at an historic high and since then it has increased even more. Population prognoses normally expect that the immigration surplus will go down to the historic average level. That has however not happened yet,”

Tomas Johansson, population analyst at Statistics Sweden, explained to The Local earlier this week.

There’s a conspicuous lack of cash on Sweden’s streets.

So ubiquitous are digital payments in the country that attempting a paper money transaction at a Swedish bank might provoke a suspicious stare or a report to the police. That’s according to Niklas Arvidsson, a professor at Stockholm’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

Arvidsson, who specialises in industrial economics and management, found in a recent study that Sweden is on its way to becoming the world’s first cash-free society. He attributed the disappearance of Swedish banknotes to the country’s embrace of new technologies, the growth of mobile payment systems, and a governmental crackdown on corruption, which helps citizens feel safe about electronic money.

“Our use of cash is small, and it’s disappearing rapidly,” Arvidsson says. Circulation figures from the Riksbank, Sweden’s central bank, back up his assertion.
