Hot news-LOL!

.....the new memory for the PC is not done yet, however Nils re-jigged my laptop so that I could download 447 pictures. I can make the blog a bit more colourful now;-)

So grown up...

Oskar enjoying a dip in a nearby lake with Daddy. As you can see, he loved it!

just to add soon as we have the new memory for the PC, I'll be posting more photos.

What is it today?.


Felt a bit wobbly all day. Don't know why?

Oskar is gaining more courage every day and will probably take his first steps in the coming days. He is clambering around the furniture all the time now....!

Why is it........?

when I try to have an early night, Oskar decides to have a bad one:-( When I stay up late, he sleeps through the night! Is it possible for me to have an early night and Oskar sleep around the clock on the same night? I neeeed more sleep!

So, what have we been up to?

Busy, busy, busy....! We've been having a massive clearout and tidy-up ahead of the next lot of work to be done in the house in July. It is suprising how much stuff we have!

17. mai

Today is Norway's national day. A day when most people don their traditional dress (bunad) and join in parades and celebrations.

I'm not Norwegian, so no national dress for me. Not for my jeans and t-shirt husband either! As for Oskar, he was dressed smartly in his strippy jeans, best shirt and denim jacket! He looked very smart/casual. I just don't like the "little Lord Fauntelroy" look for my little boy.

As for the day, we went to one of the local schools for an hour. In the area we live, the day starts with "toget" (parade). When this finishes, the days festivities start at the school near to the church. By early afternoon, the activities move a few km's away to the other school (where we went). I just wish that in a small community like ours, that there is just one venue and not two. There is a feeling of "them and us", which I think is sad. But these are just my feelings on the matter.

Later in the day, we were invited to a BBQ hosted by friends. We were joined by both their sets of parents and other close relatives. It was great for Oskar, as he had two little friends his own age to play with. Normally these kind of days are the ones you spend with your own family.....not an option for us!
We left just before Oskar's bedtime as a previous trip out told us the hard way that small children can be tricky when their routine gets out of sync! No problem today though:-)

The garden.... alive with the sound of bees. What a racket they are making too. After doing the plum and cherry trees, they are now concentrating their efforts of the apple trees. Mind you, I did my bit to help mother nature. We have a greengage tree, but will only produce the fruit if pollenated with a yellow plum. Our yellow plum tree isn't anywhere near the greengage one, so I did my bit to help;-) Elsewhere, the lily of the valley is in flower and like everything else, is 3-4 weeks early.

Where does the time go, again?

Is it really a week since my update - shocking...!

All things swimmingly here! Oskar is on top form. Crawling everywhere and into everything. He is now over 9kg and 74cms. He loves his food and developing a tummy "like daddy"!

We should hopefully be getting more memory for the PC's next week. We have about 300 photos to doubt more by the time we get organised.

Nils is upto his eyeballs in all things EIAO. EU deadlines to be met.....

I'm fine too;-)

10 months old today.....

That's what Oskar is today - Happy Birthday Cheeky Fella! Also Gratulerer med dagen, Anette. 1 år i dag!

Yesterday Anette and Anne Karine came to play. The weather was good, so we got the garden furniture and the blankets out! Toys came out too;-)

May 1st means HOLIDAY......

....well for Nils. It is May Day, so a holiday here in Norway as well as many other European countries.

The gorgeous weather continues too, so no excuse for staying indoors now that the tax returns are finished with for another year:-)

No photos today as we need to buy new memory for our PC's!!
