B is for Birgitta

Of course my B is for Birgitta and for “blogfia”.

Birgitta is the Swedish form of the Irish Gaelic female name Brighid. Brighid was the name of an ancient Celtic goddess, and its English form is Bridget.” Wikipedia (en) Wikipedia (sv).

2005 there were 178 885 people in Sweden named Birgitta but only 42 321 as their first name. Birgitta is my first name and my second is Margit and third Sofi. I have always liked my name and have never had a nickname out of it.

In my writings in Internet I call myself “blogfia

This is how I look now (always) behind my Canon.


This is from 1969 when we got married.


This is three years  ago when I got my little Milton puppy. He looked like a punky puppy.

This is from 1982 when we lived in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. I loved to have henna painted hands. My hair was “burnt” when permed at the hairdresser because they had no experience of scandinavian brittle hair.

My blouse I bought in Fresno Ca 1981.

I will go to my other PC and take a new shot in a minute ….

Have a great day everybody!

Och nu så att alla andra förstår:

Dear Birgitta,
Excellent post for B. Informative and entertaining! (My two-legged mother's mother's name is Birgitta, so I know what you are talking about.)

Trevligt inlägg. Vilket fint bröllopsfoto. 1969 jobbade jag som frissa och jag är väl bekant med frisyrmodet. Jättesnyggt på dig. Hennamålade händer är snyggt! Tack för trevligt inlägg. Ha en fin dag.
