After living here for about half a year now (time how do you go so fast???) I've gotten to the point where talking/understanding Swedish isn't constantly exhausting anymore, even if it's far from perfect.

But numbers. They've always been one of my worst enemies (took me ages to learn to read clocks), and apparently are so in Swedish too. Today I found this bag full of very brightly coloured rolls of yarn (good for my amigurumi plans) at a local second hand shop, but the price tag had fallen out.

So, I went to ask how much it cost, and after hearing the price went ":( oh." before I realized she'd said "tjugo", twenty not "sjuttio", seventy Stop laughing, in Swedish it sounds more like shjugo and shuttio. :'I And THEN there's the difference between teens and tens... meh. NUMBEEEERSSS.

Another thing I keep mixing up is earlier/later (tidigare/senare) which also gets annoying.

Unrelatedly, some day when I have nothing better to do and there's some natural light, I think I'll just spread out all my yarns somewhere and roll in them make a colour overview/check. Also take pictures for bragging purposes.
