It’s a lazy day during the school holidays. I’m swaying in the hammock in the garden of our country cottage, turning pages in one of Astrid Lindgren’s Pippi Longstocking stories. Bees, buzz above the bushes of lilac, joined by the silent flutter of colourful butterflies. That’s the idyllic memory of my childhood that envelops me as I sit in front of the red and white painted Solhaga Bakery in Slöinge.
