ONE YEAR



One year ago. So excited, so scared. So much pain! And then you came. In a moment you were there. And my life changed completely. I am so glad you came into our life, with your smiles and small hands! 
I just cant figure out what I did to deserve all this! Happy 1st birthday Thomine!

Misunderstandings....





Some of the norwegian words I completely misunderstood, and sometimes still do.

1) BRYNSENG, aka BRYNs ENG, the metro stop, I thought it was called Bryns bed, and I imagined maybe it was shaped like a bed, or it was a nice place to sleep...

2) JEG ER BONDE, I bought this button on Egertorget the summer I came to Norway. I had my hair dyed black back then and I thought, what a clever idea, I will show everybody that I am really a BLONDE. But people just laughed when they read it... It said: I am a FARMER!

3) GUERRILLAMEL, or Griljermel. This one I know couldnt be true, but I kept reading GUERRILLA...how could flour had to do with war I thought. Well it doesnt.

I think its funny and some of the words I misspelled had become part of my familys vocabulary, I wonder what my daughter will think of her weird mother when she finds out that those words really dont exist! :)

Another piece of advice...

Actually there are two, but blood and meat, they fit well together :)

La bilen stå i morgen!



Tomorrow is Moving Planet day! Let us gå tur!
I couldnt agree more.


We do not own a car, and I am kinda proud of it.. We used to have one Mitsubishi, but we didnt really need it, so its gone, and now we walk a lot. And take buss trikk bane all the time. It works perfectly well in Oslo. I know many people in Norway is dependent on having a car, but at the same time I think there are too many people buying cars that are too big and expensive...Small men in big cars, what to say....We all know what you are trying to compensate for!

This is it!



So this is it! It actually looks better now, and soon we are gonna get the sofa from here and even a new working table! Do you see the little Respatex table, I am sitting there now. It is little, but pretty. And we have 2 blue chairs. I am looking forward to hanging pictures on the walls! Puskhkina loves it too.

Slowly slowly...




Dear blog readers!
I am not gone, just been very busy*...!
But I didnt quit drawing
and I most definitely didnt quit eating,
so I will be back soon and in the meantime enjoy this wonderful yellow season!
Thank God the bikini season is OVER!
See you soon!

*packing, moving, unpacking, buying stuff, camping at Ikea for days, having my italian family visiting us, baptizing Thomine (well not me, a very cool priest did that, in this church)...
