Who am I?

I'm the one without the fur!

I'm the one without the fur!

So, you want to know who I am? Well, you’ll get a pretty good idea from reading my blog. But, in brief:

A Brit living in Sweden since 1996. Came here as a so-called love immigrant.

Have got two small kids and good supply of ear plugs.

Husband is like a third child and the dog is like the fourth.

Blessed with an ironic sense of humour.

Scriptwriter, textbook writer and translator (Swedish into English).


I used to peel bananas with my feet. (In recent years, you’ll be relieved to hear, my toes have become less agile so I have had to give up this party trick.)

I’ve got eyes at the back of my neck.

I lose my keys several times a day.

Learnt to speak Chinese, but have now forgotten it all. Swedish is my second language (after English) these days.

Collector of exotic diseases: dengue fever, amoebic dysentery, giardia, and many, many generations of worms – not once, but twice in as many years!

    10. Hi Ladyfi 🙂 Thanks for popping in on my blogs! I was wondering who from Sweden could be visiting. I shall be back to to see more of yours! But pssst – now my boss is watching over my shoulder! Have a good week, fi. 😀

    13. I’ve been visiting from over @ best posts of the week, and I enjoy your blog today. Where did you live when you had dengue? I lived in Guatemala for a while, where it ran rampant…. Tell me about your service dog…..


      June 13, 2009 at 10:35

    14. LOL. That is hilarious. Very entertaining and I learned a lot. I like this page a lot.


      June 15, 2009 at 17:03

    15. LadyFi,
      I think you might consider “FirefLi” for a handle . . . your site is delightful.
      I am intrigued by Zusak’s The Book Thief. It just got added to my summer list.
      Have you read Terry Pratchett’s Reaper Man? Death gets fired, “gets a life,” and gets romantically involved. It’s an incredible love story woven into two other story lines. On my teacher website http://www.EnglishIsNotForSissies.org I have the pages for that story line ticked out.


      July 7, 2009 at 15:01

    16. I guess I’m a “love-immigrant” as well. Another interesting way I’ve heard it referred to here in Geneva (Switzerland, not Geneva, Swededn 😛 ) is dangling husband/wife aka one who follows there significant other.


      July 8, 2009 at 14:47

    17. Thank you Lady Fi for your comment on my blog, much appreciated. You asked if Kimberley has snow at this time of year – I don’t imagine so! The picture was taken four years ago during the month of April and the snow had already receded quite a bit by then. The town of Kimberely is quaint and has an alpine theme about it. I would love to visit there during winter sometime. YOou have an interesting blog – thank you so much for sharing. I am new to the blogging world and still finding my way around here! It’s fun. All the best, Michelle on Vancouver Island.

      I was curious what it would take to get a text link on your blog saying something like “Tungsten Wedding Bands” or “Tungsten Wedding Rings” with a hyperlink to our site (www.superiorweddingrings.com).  We are a relatively new company and we are currently trying to improve our page ranking on Google.  We operate on a small budget, and we would be more than willing to give you a tungsten ring from our site in exchange for a link.  Let me know if this would be something that you would be interested in.  Thanks for any help you can give us.
      Thank You

      Hello, I came across your photo titled “I’ve finally found my balls” with a boxer twisted like a pretzel. It’s hilarious! I am a Boxer nut and am working on an informational website about Boxers. The site will serve to help people determine if the Boxer is the right dog for them. I love the breed and don’t want to see any of them abandoned or left in pounds. I am asking your permission to put this picture on my website. The web site is free and not for profit. If you are okay with it, would you want me to put your credit on the picture?

      May 18, 2010 at 01:02

      • Hi Anne Marie,

        I found the boxer picture on http://icanhascheezburger.com/

        It’s a LOL dog photo and no one was credited so I don’t know who it belongs to.

        Good luck with your site – it’s important work you’re doing!

        Yours, Fiona


        May 18, 2010 at 05:52

    32. I’m glad you stopped by my blog and I’m happy to visit yours. I have a friend from Sweden, she goes back many times a year still. Gorgeous place, from the pics I’ve seen. I’ll be back to visit you 🙂


      May 20, 2010 at 15:57

    33. Thanks for the reply. 🙂


      May 25, 2010 at 15:39

    34. hahaha…. i enjoy your vivacious sense of humour. That’s the way to go to live life longer than we should.

      I wish I can portray myself more like that in my blog but it seems when I write I always sound serious. Yet, if I read someone blog, I have this tendency to be cheeky in writing my reaction just as I do in yours.

      Jig Alskar Dig (that’s all I know). Not sure if it is right. I am saying this by memory. And sometimes my memory fails just as you lost your keys.

      Have a lovely day Lady Fi.

      I’ll link yours to my main blog so I can spy your new addition.


      June 8, 2010 at 22:40

    35. Cheers from upstate NY! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I’ve wanted to visit Sweden ever since I tracked down my birthmother and learned that I am part Swedish (her mother emigrated from Sweden to the US as a child). For now, I must content myself with IKEA furniture, Swedish fish (um, YUM) and the music of ABBA… 😉

      Off to poke about your blog a bit before donning my chauffeur cap and delivering my kid to her various social engagements this afternoon…


      October 2, 2010 at 19:29

    36. Hi — I clicked on who-you-are today for the first time. Cracked me up. I lose my keys several times a day, too, but I’ve always had to use my hands to peel bananas.
      The “collector of exotic diseases” rang a few bells, too, although mine aren’t as exotic as yours (I think I’m glad). In fact, one chapter of my book (i.e., at the moment, my blog) mentions “Kay’s collection of illnesses” or words to that effect.
      Thanks for visiting my curassow and chachalaca critters today!

    37. Hello from California. Thank you so much for stopping by Dharma Bums blog today and leaving such a thoughtful comment. I’ve never visited your blog before and am delighted by your very beautiful photographs. You see the beauty around you, and that’s what links us all these thousands of miles apart. I’m waving hello!



      October 11, 2010 at 18:40

      Thanks for your visit and kind comments.


      March 5, 2011 at 17:41

    46. Hi Lady Fi!
      So pleased that you dropped by my wee bit of a blog centering around my beloved Sophie, the Labradoodle. She is 4 years old now. Last year after a bit of coaxing I started this adventure of blogging her ‘pretty much’ everyday adventures. Such a great outlet for any creative minded person/dog!
      I live in Nova Scotia, Canada along the North Atlantic across ‘the pond’ from you. We spend plenty of our waking hours either on a beach or in a garden. Sophie brings us great joy and peace. Labradoodles are plentiful around here so we see a variety of mixes a lot. I love their temperament with the silliness of a Lab and Poodle stoicism.
      I hope this gives you a slight idea of our world and do not hesitate to follow by adding yourself to the followers list below my header picture(which I change all the time because I need to be creating all the time)
      Cheers! from Ron…one of Sophie’s dads


      April 5, 2011 at 21:39

    47. hey Lady Fi, love your new blog look, its marvelous! and your pictures are just incredible, thanks for sharing!

    57. Is this the place to leave comments ? I enjoy watching your lovely photos. And how and where did you learn Chinese ?


      September 19, 2011 at 13:44

    58. I don’t know about the eyes in the back of your head, but the ones in front do an amazing job of seeing extraordinary things you manage to capture in photo form, accompanied with just the right words, adding to, not distracting from those beautiful shots. I also love the randomness of how you describe yourself, and I am now trying to picture you peeling a banana with your feet…


      October 13, 2011 at 14:32

    59. I enjoyed my visit to your site….this about me page makes me smile 🙂

      Hi lady fi, thanks for visiting my blog. You was able to peel bananas with your toes, so perhaps you’re also a barefooter? Greetings from Germany to Sweden from Peter


      April 10, 2012 at 18:28

      • I’m not a barefooter – it’s far too cold over here. But my sister is.


        April 10, 2012 at 19:40

        • barfuessler

          Oh, it’s also cold in germany sometimes, but nevertheless I try to be barefoot outdoors all year round, if it is possible. If winter is very cold, hard and long, I naturaly wear shoes.

      April 20, 2012 at 22:22

    73. Well, if you have four children, that’s including the husband and the dog, then you need those eyes in the back of your head. Good talent to have in this world.

    95. Hi Ladyfi, i laughed at the way you described yourself above! I’ve visited Sweden once and really loved it. I was so awed why the people are so good looking and kind even to others! My colleague said “because they haven’t experienced the years of colonization, torture, abuse, like our country! Thanks for finding your blogsite, your photos are amazing.

      Dear Ladyfi,

      I have really enjoyed looking at all your amazing pictures.

      I am a student, and I was hoping to use one of your images in a project i am doing. There are two pictures in question both in a section of your blog called “Infinity”. They are named “Wide Sky” & “Wide Sky1” before i use them i wanted to check with you to make sure its was ok to use them.

      Could you email me or just comment on this post if its alright to use your images.

      Please let me know as soon as you can.
      Thank you for your time.

      Mother of four I salute you

      In India when a young bride gets married

      there was a blessing given by the elderly in very old times

      it says you ” be blessed with 10 children and the eleventh be you husband ”

      it is a very old vedic traditions, not viable in modern times

      but you have proved it right
      may with only two children a dog and the fourth your husband

      very interesting

      Nice reading about you

    145. Hello Fi, I couldn’t find an E-mail for you, so I’ll comment here. You mentioned you have Lightroom on your wish list. I’m finding it easy to use, though i’m sure I’ve just scratched the surface. There are some good on-line tutorials for it. I like the Adobe ones the best. I used Apples’s Aperture editing program previously. I notice in your bio that you do textbook writing. I used to do that, too, when I was still working. I was also a teacher. I saw a golden romping in the river today, chasing a stick. I actually thought of Oscar.
