Charlotta varies her office work by renovating her former vicarage from 1864 where she lives with her husband, son and daughter and lots of animals. Her main sport interests include horse-back dressage riding although there never seems to be enough time for that. Other than that she likes to use the sewing machine and also enjoys all types of textile crafts.
