060212 - A little bit of Swedish tradition onboard

053112 2 Tomtar on board

Whilst in Stockholm we came across a store that hand made Trolls and Gnomes. Having taught Christmas around the World traditions a long time ago as a teacher I could not help but pick up  a Tomtar - a Swedish gnome who traditionally is the protector of outhouses and sheds on Swedish farms. So we now have on board our own Tomtar to look after our new home. He has been renamed by all on board as Bruce of Katherine.
