was @Sweden (2014-12-15 to 2014-12-22)

My name is Pernilla Rydmark – @pernillarydmark on Twitter. Everything there is to know about me can be googled. I’m all over the place. I have no odd nicknames that I use online, but you can let me know if you find some.

I’m 46 years old, mother of two, stepmother of one, sambo and ex-wife, with one sick cat in my care. I believe all humans are born good and nature is a gift for everybody to treasure. Originally from Skåne in the south of Sweden but have lived more than half my life in Stockholm. My family calls me Nilla for short and I will of course tell the truth about my family.

I’m employed by .SE (The Internet Infrastructure Foundation), where I am the manager for the Internet Fund. I am responsible for providing financial support for research and development projects. I believe in linking and mixing competencies to get better technology in a human world. I have too many insights about internet technology and my colleagues are the geekiest geeks. I can absolutely talk about that.

Skiing and handball are my primary sports interests. I am chairperson of the women’s handball club Spårvägen, and right now Sweden is playing the Women’s European Championship. Did you know that all sports in Sweden are based on voluntary work? A trip to the mountains will take place during the end of this week. There will be skiing.

X-mas is coming up. There will be pictures of snow, Santa, gingerbread and glögg.

Winter solstice was celebrated thousands of years ago. People always needed to find a reason to cheer things up in dark times.

Today is special. It’s winter solstice which marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. And after today we get more light.

Beautiful ski slopes have to wait. Need to clean up this place. Yes the mouse visited this summer too. And the carpenter didn’t clean up.

I pack bags for tomorrow’s trip to the mountains. Many things to bring. 2 people filling 1 car. How did we get room with three kids?

Sorry if I offended anyone with the word sambo. It’s just one of many words that have different meaning in different languages.

@Sweden december 18, 2014 18:21

All kids have left. Empty rooms but filled with private stuff. The girls will come back after their trips. But right now emptiness.

Slussenis an important traffic hub in Stockholm. It’s in decline and is now up for renovation. 8 years and 8 billion. Huge investment.

Environmental issues on the news, yes to the western ring road in Stockholm and no to Bromma airport. Infrastructure is a big question.

At office. Commuting went smooth this morning. Bus and tube less than 30 minutes. Slippery today. Let’s not brake anything out there.
