This Sunday (2nd October 2016), hear the great sounds of Frank Sinatra, Count Basie and Ella Fitzgerald played by Johan Stengard and his jazz big band. The show starts at 7pm at Danderydsgården. There is a requested 'donation' of 100kr. www.danderyd.se/sv/Uppleva--gora/Danderydsgarden
Catch it before Thursday - 'Färger i mitt liv' - is worth going to check out at Djursholm library in the next two days. See below for the map. Let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook!
A couple of weeks ago, Primeur Natural Food opened in the space behind the Greek restaurant Grekiska Kolgrillsbaren at the back of the square in Djursholm. Emilie from Mom in Balance and I went to investigate.
Primeur offers salads, grilled sandwiches and coffee and cake. Most of it is very healthy, including a great selection of raw food desserts, including the raw cheesecake pictured above. Very tasty.
There is a big space for sitting and easting outside (with blankets of course). Inside, the wallpaper has a radish print all over and is really attractive. The whole place has a bit of an art-deco feel about it and is very inviting.
Viktoria, who runs the cafe, told us that she wants to provide a place for really healthy eating and has a wide range of snacks, breakfasts and drinks that you can buy to eat at home. We tried the beef salad and it was really good. There was cold-brewed green tea included which was surprisingly nice. The granola we have had for breakfast at home this weekend and it is crunchy with lots of taste. The cafe is definitely worth checking out for yourself.
IFORM Danderyd gym at Enebyberg has opened a cafe, full of yummy things, including lunch specials each weekday between 11am and 3pm. Opening times are:

Our local midwife team, based at Danderyds Sjukhus, have been called 'Prima Liv' for many years because they were originally part of a private company. Now, they have been fully absorbed into the hospital and are called simply 'Barnmorskemottagningen' - the midwifery department - so that it is clear they are part of the main hospital team. They are in Hus 15 at the hospital and all their details are here: http://www.ds.se/MottagningAvdelning/Mottagningar/Barnmorskemottagning/
Stocksundsgården's kitchen team under Karoline Nordefors @seniormat have been nominated for three White Guide prizes. They make the most amazing food for the older people they take care of. We hope they win. All of them!
Djursholm was buzzing this evening as the shops and restaurants stayed open later for an evening known as 'Djursholm by night'!
We don't usually write up news reports but this feel serious enough to translate and publish:
Police have reported that this evening, around 8pm, there was a fight between a group of people and a person who had been sitting in a car in the neighbourhood. One person is being treated at Danderyd Sjukhus for minor wounds caused by gunfire, a young person with wounds to his arm who took himself into hospital, according to Aftonbladet. The police are looking for at least one person suspected of attempted murder.
We will write again if there are any developments.
I'm an English gal with a Swedish husband and children living permanently in Danderyd. These are my thoughts on what is going on around here.
