gift from 'svigermor'

my moms gift to my husband was a sweather she had knitted. She had almost finshed it before leaving Norway and plan to do the rest on the 30 hour flight down here. But because of flight security the flight attendants needed to take the knitting needles away from my mom, something they did with lots of apologices.

She manage to finish it here though doing a little bit everytime my husband went out and errand. The finish result look pretty good.

Originally uploaded by dynamitt.

photo of the week

this weeks photo is of my little sister and myself playing two headed monster in my dads huge new jacket. At least we didn't feel cold anymore..

its raining its pooring

we had 3 hours to kill today before my family was due to go to the airport to go back to Norway. I suggested that we walked to a icecream place my little sister and I had been to earlier. It was a bit further to walk then I thought (we had biked last time we went) but we got there pretty hot and tired after about 1 hour walk.

The icecream was grand and well worth the long walk. When we left the shop and started to go home we noticed that the sky had become very dark, and soon enough it started to rain. First just a couple of drops but then it really started to poor down and we were totally wet within seconds. The rain came so fast it was flooding in the streets. Most other people out had taken covers in stores, cafes or bus shelters so we were the only ones walking in the rain and we got some stares because of that and also how wet we were. The rain was pretty warm and as it seem to rain heavier and heavier it actually became a bit funny. My mum got the giggels and then all of us had to laugh...

my parents and little sister came to visit us all the way from Norway. It is pretty nice actually. Weird to talk so much norwegian but also good to see my family again. They also brought a big shopping bag full of real chocolate - yum! I was sitting on our bed just now and surfing the net while eating some chocolate and ended up spilling chocolate all over the bed... Oh well we do have a washing machine. My mom made dinner today aswell, nice to eat something she had cooked again too. But the best is that my husband and my parents are getting along very very well.
