A dusting of snow..

is what we woke up to this morning! I am so glad to report that is has all gone, vanished!

The lounge still isn't finished, but here is a little peak :

The work is progressing..

..we've just bought 25 metres of oak skirtings for the lounge. They are just a little bit expensive, but look great.

Oskar is back to normal again - continuing to chomp his way through most days too! One of his favourites at the moment is Conference Pear - he's eating one a day for his mid-morning snack!

Still no snow - hurrah!

Trying to finish my Christmas ATC's for the Scrapparazzi swap.

We are well now.....

....and the lounge is Mimosa Yellow!!! I'm still amazed that Nils agreed to the colour;-) I'll add photos when the room is completely finished.

Had to take Oskar to the Dr's a couple of days ago as he had a really sore bottom and rash on his legs and bits & bobs! Diagnosis was a reaction to either:
a) MMR vaccination.
b) Teething.
c) The stomach virus he had recently!
OR a combination of all three! October was a tough month for his little body.
Glad to say that the rash is now lessening and the bottom isn't as sore:-)

There were two Scrapparazzi birthdays last weekend, so managed Janet's card and Lynn's 4x4 CJ pages. Amazingly Posten & Royal Mail worked well and the cards arrived on time:-)

16 months old today!

Time does fly......!

So, I didn't do the update as planned - there was a good reason. Anyway, here's what we've been up to since my last big post.

Mum & Dad came over for a visit laden with Christmas pressies! The 10 days flew past and before we knew it, they were heading home. Oskar and I were intending on taking them to Torp for their flight. However, Oskar came down with a contagious stomache virus on their last day. Poor little mite was quite poorly for a day or so, but took a week before we were clear of extreme nappies. They disappeared as his appetite came back. He is full of life again and eating for Norway - which is good because he lost so much weight. He's lost his "chunky chicken legs"! I fell foul to the virus too and am recovering from my 48 hour extreme detox!

We've got our Brussels trip all sorted too - we will be staying at the SAS Radisson EU Hotel for 3 nights:-)

Tomorrow, Oskar and I will visit Anne Gro & Anette. I am hoping to finish the Scrapparazzi ATC & November birthday swaps whilst there too......already a bit late with the posting. But, it is possible for stuff to cross The North Sea in only two kind to us postal system so that the cards and CJ pages arrive in UK by 10th November.

Update on the DIY - just one more coat of varnish (number 7) and they are done - hurray! can you believe that everything will be completed by Christmas!....
