I made it back to Sweden without incident. And when I got here I discovered that the scary tax situation has been resolved, so I no longer have financial worries hanging over me. Also, home smells homey and feels comforting, though I hate the fact that it is so far away from all the cool people I've been hanging out with in the last couple of weeks.
Two annoying things: I changed my left over money back into Swedish kronor, and tried to use an automatic machine to pay them into my bank account. However, the machine decided to throw an error right at the end, after it had swallowed the money! I am pretty sure that the bank will be able to sort this out, otherwise I'll raise merry hell until they do. But still annoying. And I can't log in to LJ using Firefox on my own computer, so I am reduced to the inconvenience of IE, blech. Again, I really hope it's sortable.
I ought to get to sleep rather than trying to make up for weeks and weeks offline, I think!
You were definitely one of the people I most missed when I was socializing in person instead of online; I guess I picked a reasonable time to go as it overlapped with the Farthing party when you were also busy with physical people. Good luck with the catching up.
To tell the truth I'm really only taking a deep breath before plunging into mad Jewish community commitments for the next three weeks, so properly in touch is going to take a while for me too.
