Emma on saying goodbye and being a true söderkis.
Today I handed over the keys to my old apartment. Part of me is relived that everything is done with our old place, no more stuff to move and nothing that needs cleaning. I have to say it was a lot harder than I thought I would be to say goodbye. I had one last look this morning at the high ceiling, big windows and the wooden fishbone parquet floor and could not help but feel a strong twinge of sadness. Södermalm is in my opinon the best part of Sweden’s capital, it’s such a perfect mix of old Stockholm, nature and citylife. I actually never thought I would leave. But life is funny in that way, is it not? You never know where it might lead you. The lady we use to live next door told us something that cheered me up, she said Dylan is always going to be a true ‘söderkis’, which is a old slang word for someone that was born on Södermalm. Roughly translated, it means ‘south-cat’, but it’s like a Stockholm equivalent of a cockney. I like that, my söderkis family starting a new adventure.
