ordet for dagen

Not sure if I mentioned it before, but Emil’s been giving me words of the day. Clearly they’re helping, because I seem to be absorbing Swedish words into my language. I automatically knew that ‘bilder’ were images when I read a status on facebook today from somewhere, and it took a few moments before i realised I had done a direct mental translation: WIN!

recent words of the day:

upptagen – busy/taken (as in ‘i’m taken that day – no can do)

ensam – lonely/alone

klanning – dress

gjort – made

sytt – sewed

‘Allt min vänner är upptagen så jag sytt en klanning medans jag var ensam.’: all my friends are busy so i sewed a dress whilst i was alone.
