Crikvenica

Since, Ensar was supposed to have two weeks off from work we decided to go to Crikvenica despite not being here in high season.
I was a little bit sceptical to going there in the beginning but the weather turned out to be fabulous making me wonder why there are so few tourists here.
Actually, I do not wonder I know (that would be another post though) but I can say this much, the weather during the day is around 23-25 degrees, sunshine and a little bit windy from time to time. It is absolutely perfect for taking walks, drinking coffee, wine and eating out. I find it perfect with kids also, because the sun is not too strong and one doesn’t have to keep the kids indoors from 12 to 15h (usually longer) as in high season in the summer.
Unfortunately, despite being here Adrian is not recovering and has quite a bad cough and fever. Thus, tomorrow we are going to the specialist clinic of respiratory diseases located here in Crikvenica to see that his cold is not going down to the lungs.
Today, while Ensar was showering Adrian and I was looking for his clothes Ada took a knife and wanted to cut the cucumber in pieces ending by cutting herself in the hand. That was her first cut and she got so scared she cried and cried and it was hard time to calm her down. Finally, after three stories she fell asleep.

Po┼íto je Ensar dobio slobodno dvije sedmice odlu─Źili smo oti─çi u Crikvenicu iako nije udarna sezona. Bila sam malo skepti─Źna da idem na more u ovo doba ali ispalo je predobro. Vrijeme je fantasti─Źno, ┼íto me dovede da se pitam za┼íto nema ve─ç sada turista, ali ustvari znam ve─ç odgovor tog pitanja, ali to je za drugi post (ako ga ikad napi┼íem).
Vrijeme je kao ┼íto sam rekla, fantasti─Źno. Izme─Ĺu 23-25 stepeni, sunce i ponekad malo pu┼íe. Perfektno je za ┼íetnje, pijuckanje kafa, vina i ru─Źanja vani. Smatram da je perfektno i za djecu isto, jer sunce nije toliko jako da ih mora┼í zatvoriti izme─Ĺu 12-15h (obi─Źno du┼że) kao ┼íto je slu─Źaj ljeti.
Na┼żalost, iako smo ovdje Adrian se nije oporavio i fasovao je da gadno ka┼ílje a i temperatura ga nije pro┼íla. Zato sutra idemo u specialist klinici za respiratorijske bolesti pa ─çemo vidjeti da kontroli┼íu Adriana da mu nije prehlada oti┼íla na plu─ça.
Danas, dok je Ensar tu┼íirao malog a ja tra┼żila ne┼íto da obu─Źe Ada je iskoristila momenat da uzme no┼ż za mazanje, i da isjecka krastavac. Na┼żalost nije joj dobro i┼ílo tako da se prili─Źno gadno posjekla i kad je vidjela krv prepala se pa smo imali problema da je smirimo i pripremimo za spavanje. Ali nakon tri pri─Źice uspijela sam je smiriti i napokon je zaspala.

First sentence / Prva re─Źenica

Yesterday morning Adrian managed to say his first sentence…It was a mixture of Swedish and Bosnian and he said “dje je apa?” (gdje je (bosnian: where is) apa (swedish: monkey) meaning “where is the monkey?
All three of us Ada, Ensar and I where in the room as he said it and we got all caught by the surprise but we got also very happy and proudJu─Źer┬áje Adrian izgovorio svoju prvu re─Źenicu…Jest da je bila mje┼íavina ┼ívedskog i bosanskog ali razumijeli smo ga. Rekao je “dje je apa?”. Apa je na ┼ívedskom majmun.
Sve troje (Ada, Ensar i ja) smo bili u sobi kad je Adrian izgovorio re─Źenicu i prvo smo se za─Źudili ali smo poslije postali jako ponosno i sretni ┼íto je uspio izgovoriti ─Źitavu re─Źenicu.

Shoppomania/ Šopomanija

In my deepest misery I was buying medicaments like people buy candies. I said to myself, when I get better I will go to the city and I will buy anything I need.
Last week then I felt a little bit better and went for a spontaneous coffee with a friend…ending up in Tk-maxx AND Roppenheim outlet in France. I bought 3 pairs of Asics, 2 pairs of Levis, shoes for the kids t-shirts, a jacket, sun cream, a day moisteuriser, a night moisturiser, a serum from instytutum and a pair of sunglasses. I have to say I prefer buying things like that than medicaments ­čÖé┬á

U mojoj najdubljoj bijedi kupovala sam lijekove poput ljudi koji kupuju bombone. Rekla sam sebi ─Źim budem bolje, idem u grad i kupi─çu SVE ┼íto mi treba.
Pro┼íle sedmice sam se tako malo bolje osje─çala ┬ái odem na spontanu kafu sa jednom prijatljicom … zavr┼íiv┼íi u Tk-maxx I u Roppenheimu u Francuskoj. Kupila sam sebi 3 para Asicsa, 2 para Leviski, tene za djecu, sebi jaknu, kremu za sunce, dnevnu hidrantnu kremu, no─çnu hidrantnu kremu, serum od instytutuma i par sun─Źanih nao─Źara. Moram re─çi da vi┼íe volim kupovati stvari poput ovih nego tro┼íiti pare na lijekove ­čÖé
Spring is coming, girls. Time to dress up!
Cure, dolazi prolje─çe. Vrijeme se srediti!

Fonds / Fondovi

Last couple of months I have started saving in different funds. The problem I experience is that I cannot buy foreign stocks on my Swedish accounts because I do not live in Sweden and thus funds have became the only way I can diversify my portfolio towards a more global spread. But also, I do not have the time to check separate stocks and I feel that a fund is a good way to get stocks that I like.
I decided on funds that are not having a very high management fees (except the Ny teknik -fund that has it). Having these funds I actually get access to companies like Alibaba, Samsung , Alphabet (Google), FB, Investor and so on.

So the funds I am regularly buying are (management fees in %):

  • SEB Sverigefond (1.4%),
  • Spiltan Aktiefond Investmentbo (0.27%),
  • Swedbank Robur Access Asien (0,2%),
  • Swedbank Robur Access Global (0,27%),
  • Swedbank Robur Ny teknik (1,36%) and
  • Spiltan r├Ąntefond Sverige (0,24%).

The R├Ąntefond is a bond fund that I hope will be a little like an airbag in case of a stockmarket crash.

Funny now, when making this list I noticed that I am buying the wrong fond SEB Sverigefond instead of SEB Sverige Indexfond that costs 0.42% in management fee instead of 1.4%, but also I should probably start relocating some of the savings to the more stable bond funds.
The minimal sum of investing is 10 Euro and there is no brokerage fee when buying funds (in Sweden).
These are also not a recommendation but everyone has to make their own choice of which stocks or funds to buy.

Here is a fun page where you can enter how much money you save and the effect of the compound effect has on your saving.

Posljednih par mjeseci sam po─Źela ┼ítediti u razli─Źite fondove. Problem koji do┼żivljavam jeste da ne mogu kupovati inostrane dionice na mojim ┼ívedskim ra─Źunima, jer ne ┼żivim u ┼ávedskoj i stoga su fondovi postali jedini na─Źin na koji mogu diverzifikovati moj portfolio da bude vi┼íe globalnog izgleda. Odlu─Źila sam kupovati fondove koje nisu skupe u mened┼żmentu fonda (osim Ny teknik fond). Imaju─çi ove fondove, imam udio u firme poput Alibaba, Samsung, Alphabet (Google), FB, Invesor i tako dalje. Dakle, sredstva koja redovno kupujem su (naknade za upravljanje u %):

  • SEB Sverigefond (1.4%),
  • Spiltan Aktiefond Investmentbo (0.27%),
  • Swedbank Robur Access Asien (0,2%),
  • Swedbank Robur Access Global (0,27%),
  • Swedbank Robur Ny teknik (1,36%) and
  • Spiltan r├Ąntefond Sverige (0,24%).

R├Ąntefond je kamatni fond koji (se nadam) treba biti poput airbaga u slu─Źaju pada na berzi.

Smije┼íno, sad vidim kad sam pisala listu da kupujem pogre┼ían fond! ┬áSEB Sverigefond, koji ko┼íta 1.4%, ┬áumjesto SEB Sverige indexfond koji ko┼íta 0,42% godi┼ínje. Najvjerovatnije bih trebala po─Źeti prebacivati neke ┼ítednje u stabilnije kamatne fondove.
Najmanji ulog za kupovinu fondovoa je 100 kr (ca. 10 eura) i nema courtage koštanje, zato je dobro redovno štediti u fondovima.
Ovo nisu prijedlozi nekome za kupovinu, nego samo fondovi koje ja sama kupujem. Svako mora za sebe odlu─Źiti ┼íta ─çe i ako ─çe kupiti.

Ovdje mo┼żete da izra─Źunate koji udar ima kamata na va┼íu dugoro─Źnu ┼ítednju.

Hope / Nada

A healthy man has thousands of wishes, a sick man has only one…After having have experienced the worst month and a half ever it has made me think of myself. Last week I got tonsilitis, otitis a headache from hell where I had the feeling that my head will literally explode. No painkillers helped. My balance crashed, the fever was high no matter what I took. I dehydrated, I puked so finally the emergency docs had to come to check me up. My ligaments where hurting. I was lying for days in the bed. Whining of pain. sleeping and not sleeping. I don’t even know anymore. In all this misery I wondered how do people having much more serious health problems motivate themselves?

For the first time in weeks I felt good enough to get out from the apartment. It felt wonderful! This simple thing to take a walk is just magic. Unfortunately it is not in Hagapark or at the magic place in Ade in Krupa but still. It is good enough. Today, I had a walk in a small forest and felt hope when I saw the anemones. I am almost through this illness and I am lucky I made it. It is almost over. The spring is back! I am back…I hopeZdrav ─Źovjek ima hiljade ┼żelja, a bolestan samo jednu … Nakon ┼íto sam do┼żivjela najgorih mjesec i po dana otka znam za sebe, navelo me da razmislim malo o sebi. Pro┼íle nedjelje sam dobila gnojnu aginu, upalu usiju, glavobolju iz pakla gdje sam imala ose─çaj da ─çe mi glava bukvalno eksplodirati. Nijedan lijek protiv bolova nije pomogao. Moj balans se poremetio, temperatura je bila visoka bez obzira koje lijekove sam uzela. Dehidrirala sam se, tako da je na kraj doktor iz hitne dosao da me provjeri. Zglobovi su me bolili. Lezala sam danima u krevetu. Plakala sam od bolova. Spavala sam a i nisam. Vise i sama ne znam. U cijeloj ovoj situaciji sam se pitala kako se ljudi, koji imaju mnogo ozbiljnije zdravstvene probleme, motivi┼íu?

Po prvi put u zadnjih par sedmica sam se osje─çala dovoljno dobro da iza─Ĺem iz stana. Bilo je divno! Jedna obicna stvar poput ┼íetnje moze da bude poput magije. Na┼żalost,setnja nije bila u Hagaparku ili na ─Źarobnom mjestu na Adama u Krupi, ali ipak dovoljno za sad. Pro┼íetala sam malo kroz ┼íumu i osje─çala sam nadu kada sam vidjelao anemone. Skoro sam prevazisla ovu bolest i mogu reci da sam sretna za to. Skoro je gotovo. Prolje─çe se vratilo! Vratila sam se i ja… nadam se
