Svenska är ett svårt att skriva men jag ville prova.

Jag ville bara säga något på svenska. hmm jag vet inte vad men ... Love och fred. Puss och Kram


So i'm back...back to writing in this blog again..yay?
So it's been a pretty packed out few weeks lately and today is...wait for two months! (of being in sweden that is) 
I have to say it has gone fast..considering I'm here for only 12..10 to go. 
Soo where i left off last time was after my first african dance lesson. On the tuesday I started my new timetable for the first time..going into the science program in the first year ( around year 10/11). I was really looking forward to it because.....
1. I was in the same class as Rebecca, a New Zealand girl living in Ronneby.
2. The class was super fun and the students are really nice
3. I have fill my free time!

So the subjects i took were math (my teacher's name is Maths...weirddd), English, Sos, Economics and then my usual Swedish classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
I had math with Maths first and i sat with Cindy and becky was away skiing. I was told that we had a math test on the following Wednesday... :S and that i had to learn all the topics...160pages worth before then.

I spent most of the week hanging with my class..they are all really lovely and we laugh a lot together.
On Friday i headed to lund to celebrate my 18th with Courtneyyy, only the coolest exchangee in Sweden. I got onto the right train this time and read 'Twilight' for most of the 2 hour trip. When i got into the station Courtney, Lucy (From New Zealand) and Josh (from Australia) were waiting for me. It was so lovely to see everyone! 
Then we went to the camera shop to get me a new camera..because mine was broken (as mentioned previously)
Then we went back to Courtneys, had some dinner and Josh and Lucy came over to watch movies. We watched Hitch but i ended up falling asleep in it and then being woken up 2 minutes before the 14th of birthday.
We had a mini celebration and then headed to bed because we had a big day ahead. I woke up to very lovely messages and phone calls from my swedish sweethearts and my Aussie babes. Courtney gave me a beautiful present and a massive birthday hug. :) i do love her
Courtney's hosties put on a birthday breakfast for me which was so nice and then we headed into Central Lund to meet up with Simon. It was the most beautiful day..the sun was out and it was around 12 degrees! it was so beautiful. 

We met up with Simon which in itself was enough of a treat. Simon is a complete sweetheart and getting to spend the day with Simon and Courtney would have been enough. He made muffins though which was so sweet and then we were about to head to Malmö when Hedvig (my host sister) called and wanted to meet up. I met up with Klara and hedvig and we were going to get coffee when they told me that they had something better so we went to the....ICE CREAM BAR! the most amazing icecream i have ever EVER eaten however it was about the size of my head and i dont think ill be looking at ice cream in a very long time. My host sisters are the most lovely girls and I'm very lucky to have such babes as sisters.
Here is me eating the masssss icecream.

soo good

After I left Hedvig and Klara, i think we were all pretty close to vomiting as the icecream was coming out of our ears,  i caught the train  to Malmö to meet up again with Courtney and Simon. Malmö is so beautiful, it's the third biggest city in Sweden and has many shops and much happening in the city. Quite the opposite to good old Ronneby. 
We headed straight to the cheep Monday store...ohhh my. I think i could live in this shop..ha.

So after our little shop in Malmö we had china Box..much like noodle box. I thought i couldn't eat anything but hey...when it's your birthday. 
We then headed back home to get ready to go to see Josh and Lucy and head to a few of Josh's friends house. It was a really great night...except for the fact that we got kicked out of the bar but that in itself was pretty funny. over 40's night with kareoke.
some pictures from the day in malmö and the night....

Lucy, Court and i              me and Court                Cheep monday!               Simon and i in Malmö

On the Sunday i headed home to see the parents and they put on a lovely dinner for me and bought me a really beautiful charm for my bracelet. ( a black spotted bra) :):)
Which leads us to this week. Becky was back so we talked a lot and went to the corner store a lot to buy
On Tuesday we had this math exam and it wouldve helped if i understood the Swedish...or the math come to think of it but i managed to fail. ha oh goodness. 
I went out with josifin on Wednesday afternoon adn we tried on the most beautiful dresses in Lindex. haha...
jo eating pizza 

On friday i spoke to my best friend back home. ALYCE!

This was so lovely. i loved hearing from her and all the goss happening back at home.  its her birthday soon soooo HAPPY BIRTHDAY. 

This weekend becky came over on Friday night so that we could go out clubbing..we got all ready, make up, dresses, and everything and decided to hit the club (the only one in Ronneby) at around 11pm. So before we left i was like..maybe we should check if its actually open.. so we looked it up wasn't. so we got out of our outfits and put on our pj's but i got  a few photos of us getting ready..haha. even though we didn't end up going

This is im my bedroom in Sweden.

On saturday I went with elin to Karlskrona to see a movie and grab some lunch..unfortunatley the shops closed at around 3pm and the movie was at 6pm so we decided not to stay and went back to her house...after missing the train. 
karlskrona is really beautiful and has these mini islands sorrounding it covered in tiny holiday houses. its like looking at a dolls world or something. 
Spending time with elin is always really nice and she's so easy to talk to. She is one of my host sisters best friends and when agnes (my host sister living in New Zealand) comes home im sure we will all hang out. 

Elin in Karlskrona

I went back to Elins house this night and we watched Juno and ate chocolate.. Sweden has chocolate from god.  Then we had dinner with her parents. Sweden is amazing because around 90% of the population speak english fluently, I must learn swedish though,
anyway that leads us to today where i didn't really do a lot.
Love and kisses to everyone, puss och kram. (hugs and kisses)
Im missing everyone especially one particular person..but he knows who he is. 
i hope youre all well and not asleep if you've read this whole thing. 
x bonnie. 


ahhhhhhhhhhhh so.
well my days are pretty jammed packed at the moment so i'm writing a little more regually.. imagine.
i'll start with thurday night.
on thursday night i went with Linda and Anna to wood carving. it was very cool. we were given chunks of bark and had to carve something out of them. With my skills i made a weird shapped love heart and a rigid butter knife. haha. 
Friday i left school early because i couldn't really be bothered staying and went home for a sleep it was pretty refreshing actually. THENNNNN... Courtney came to Ronneby for the weekend. 
i think that deserves a few of these... ! ! ! ! ! ! !
l showed her around wonderfully small Ronneby which took around 10 minutes..haha. We then went to jackln hide where we god a mocca and chilled there for a bit. Hedvig, my host sister also came to Ronneby for the weekend which was wonderful. Shes so very sweet but i wish i got to spend a bit more time with her. 
Friday night we chilled at home watching this strange movie called...? and 'Dude wheres my car' from the Ashton Box. Ha it was preeettttyyyyy funny..we also made a pavlova which i ended up dropping as i lifted it out of the oven and it smelt like dirty feet. so no one ate it... 
On saturday we started the day off at 'wellness studio' the only gym in Ronneby where we were late to the body pump class. My god there were like 60 people in the class (thats like the whole of Ronneby!) and they all turned around to witness our late arrival. embarrassing. It was pretty lame class so we walked out anyway after 20 minutes and headed for the treadmills. After out little work out sesh went to Karlkrona for some subway, McDonalds and a little shopping. oh and we went to look for a piercing place.....but there was none. serious downer.
here is me in Karlskrona 
After our little shopping spree we headed back to Ronneby via Karlsarm...oops.
We got ready because tonight we were heading to a party with my friend Elin. 
Ha it was so much fun..apart from being in the middle of absoloutley no where it turned out to be quite fun/interesting/funny. Here are a few snap shots of the night...taken by courtney.

us getting ready......        all ready 

the most  funny thing happened though...for some reason all the guys thought that 'forign' girls were so interesting...particually one boy who was OBSESSED with courtney. it was kinda scary. 

after dancing                      on the bed.
oh and the boy who had the party, we were in his room and there were all these pictures of crying babies everywhere. We like looked at eachother and was like..oh my fuck. 
most of the girls who went go to my school and the boys..? no body really even knew their names. ha.
We ended up becoming friends with these two boys, mainly because one said he would pay for our bus ticket, as we were well...broke. So thennnnnn he convinced us that he could take us into a club. ha well not even close. we ended up going to the burger shop and getting hamburgers. IT WAS HOWEVER the local hangout for drunks and this one guy kept shouting 'what are you losers doing with such beautiful girls!' and then he came over to me and started to try and kiss my hand... he was like 25! and completely weird. and when i was like...go away he was like 'oh baby i have so much money, its okay!' 
We caught a cab home from there and fell asleep straight away..
Sunday we woke up rather late and had a lovely breakfast and decided to go on a bike ride to one of the only supermarkets in Ronneby 'MAXI'
Ronneby is sooooo hilly and we both nearly died. Mainly becuase i got lost when choosing the way to go. Who wouldve thought you could get lost in a place like this.
We came home and watched 'step up 2' and had a bit of a nap before we crashed.
Monday Courtney came to school with me. haha well  we had swedish first up which was well.....gag.
We went to my Rotary lunch in town and then headed for the train station so that courtney could make her way back to lund.
Monday, Last night i went to Afrodance with Louise and Josifine. ahhhh it was so much fun. It was so different and im not very co-ordinated but i enjoyed it none the less. here are some pictures....jose and i 
getting ready.
Today i had a really good day. I started it off by riding my bike to school...ughh. I started my new timetable today and got told that i had to learn 150 pages of math before next wednesday as i now have an exam. myyyy goodness. Study hard.

I hope everyone is well. Leave me a comment if you like just letting me know how you are.. etc. Its nice to hear from everyone. 
lots of love ,
bon xoxo


WELL it has been quite a while. I just wish this would write itself. haha
Okay so since i have been back in Ronneby....

On the weekend, i forgot to mention that i went skiing with some family friends. i was TERRIBLE! Cross country skiing is a big no for my future carrier. 

i started back at school on monday and wasn't really looking forward to it.

It just seemed like such a downer after a week in Lund.
BUT... it was actually pretty good! i went to swedish on Monday, Tuesday and wednesday..that was the only downer.
I made really good friends with this girl Martina, shes very sweet.
On Thursday night I got invited to this pub to watch a band from school play. they were AWESOME. if you have time check them out on Myspace.  This is the URL...

This is them!

The whole week i hung out a lot with martina. we talked about everything and anything and i feel so lucky to have such a lovely friend.
ill write more this afternoon! i have finished swedish lessons now...ahhah
productive lessons bonnie. 

okayyy back..On saturday I met up with elin, she drove to the GYM! and we took a  yoga class. it was so relaxing, i nearly fell asleep so many times. It was so funny becasue the instructor said something like lie down and close your eyes and focus on your breatheing so i was like...yeah okay. So i was pretty much asleep when i felt someone grab my head! Ha so i didnt understand what he actually said which was that he was going around giving head massages. I nearly had a heart attack! 
After our relaxation at the gym we headed into ronneby's center and took a look through the shops. it took around an hour. haha its so small here. Then we went and got lunch at a cute cafe. At around 2pm i met up with Rebecca who is on exchange from New zealand at the same school as me!! totally the best news i had heard in a really long time. :) 
we got a coffee and shopped some more. it was a lot of fun. its cool knowing that there is someone in pretty much exactly the same position as you. ahh shes so sweet.
 On saturday i wasnt feeling to great so i came home and napped and read twilight..ha im addicted! while i was napping my friend 'Anna' from the band called and wanted to know if i could come to party tonight. well even though i wasnt feeling great how could i refuse my first actual partyyyy?! i got dressed and met up with anna and olivia at 'uncle willys'. we drove to another friends house so that her parents could drive to the party. welll it ended up being in the middle of know where but it was still really fun. So different to an Australian party though. i got there and we were greeted at the door by Jasper, it was his birthday bash. everyone was sitting around the table with no music on or anything.. ha. Just drinking in the kitchen. So i was like... hey jasper can we please put some music on? and he was likeee...huh? ha we ended up going upstairs so i could listen to some music. It was differnt but still a lot of fun. we got home around 2am which was a nice change. ahha
sunday i rode my bike for the first time...oh god i nearly died. i was very enthusiastic to be riding to town (its a 5 minute drive) so i got all my things ready for the gym and got on my bike. i NEVER realised how many dam hills were in ronneby until i nearly had a heart attack riding up a few of them. haha. i got to the gym already panting and sweaty and did a small workout and rode to my rotary councellors house for some tea. 
So that leads us to this week so far...Monday was pretty bad and i ended up coming home from school becasue i was feeling so sickly. i slept for 6 hours had some dinner and went back to sleep again for the night. it was rather refreshing. 
TODAY i had a really good day. I woke up really really late like 20 minutes before my bus arrives! Its different here because at home it would be like..yeah same old uniform dont really care. But now its like..oh my god what the hell do i wear to school!? all i want to wear is track pants with a wolly jumper butttt everyone looks amazing at school and i dont particually want to be an ugly duck (more so then usual i guess). So i chucked on some jeans and a cardigan and ran out the house with my vegemite toast still in my mouth.  
I had swedish all morning which was quite a drag. Then i had lunch. I didnt really have anyone to sit with when Rebecca and her class walked past. ahh it was a really good lunch time and we all just sat there laughing. Instead of going to art i joined their class in the gym..hahah, oh god. i thought it would be like areobics or something but we did some hard core running and then burpies followed by gymnastics. Pretty sure i pulled a lot of muscles.
after the class i went and spoke to my student advisor about changing into this class. so excited! Bec went and got some KEX.. best chocolate ever, and we thought that we should go to the gym after the feast. ha. Bec had her bike at school and i was like 'how about you ride on the back and ill pedal?' so we tried it. and ended up falling on the ground because it was soo much harder then i thought. i have grases on my hands becasue of the fall..haha

Tomorrow is swedish all day :(:( sick. 
I hope everyone is well. I'm guessing no one reads this though cause i never get any comments. 
lots of love to everyone-

ps sorry about the lack of photos. my camera is brokennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!
