Fika: a Swedish word for having coffee and dessert with friends. There is no English equivalent - that probably says something about the Swedes and their priorities, don't you think? I wish I had known this word when my grandmother was alive; I would have suggested fika for us. I think she would have liked that. Anyway, I had fika with some MOMS Club friends yesterday. We had a lovely time nibbling, drinking coffee, and chatting. Exactly what fika is all about. I just love that word.
