Wednesday February 28th
Today is the
last day of February. It's blowing a very cold, strong wind
here today. But tomorrow starts the first Spring month. Hurray!
Cecilie has been
at the riding course this afternoon. (The second riding
evening, out of 12.)
I went to pick
her up, in the stable, after the course finished. I am a bit
afraid of horses, but I am very facinated too, and I would be
very happy, if I could try to ride a horse myself some time.
But this riding courses are very expencive, so for now, it's
more than enough for my moneybag that Cecilie is riding.
Thuesday February 27th
Now we are well,
the entire family. The kids too. We are just hacking and
hawking a bit, but we are in good form apart from this. I have
been at work both today and yesterday.

about the trip. He had a lovely time.
Now I have got
the results from all the blood test I took last week: Nothing
is wrong with me. The reason I am so tired and have no energy,
is probably that I am exhausted due to our moving and work
with our new house, and all my worries about not selling the
The couple who
came to see our old appartment, did not want to buy it. It's
quite narrow around our old appartment. There are houses, very
close to the appartment, in all directions. But the appartment
is big and nice, with 5 big bedrooms, so we really hope that
someone wants to buy it soon. Or perhaps the woman who rents
it, might want to buy it, some time. We'll just have to wait
Today it seems like Joakim is
better. He has no fever.
It's nice to feel that my
energy is coming back, after my illness. Today I have changed
all our bedclothes. I have also started the washing machine. It
will probably wash clothes all day. It's a lot of laundry, after
I have been ill for 5 days.
Tomorrow Charles is coming
home. He has been on his travel since Thursday. I have been
speaking to him on the phone, several times. He has had a
wonderful trip. He was expecially happy about the stay at the

now. Two days ago, it was freezing (10 degreez below zero and a
very, very cold wind.) Yesterday, it was a nice winter weather,
but today, when I took out the rubbish, I noticed that it's
almost Spring. But it's to early, unfortunately. I belive that
we will have more winter, with cold weather, wind and snow, but
I am enjoying this warm "Spring-like" weather that we have today.
I am not sure if I dare to go out, so soon after my flu. We'll

Cecilies 13th bithday,
which was in December.
At last, the strong and cold wind
is gone. Today we have sunny weather, with no cold wind, and
about 3 degreez below celcius. It's a pity we have to stay
indoors, when we have this wonderful winter weather.
Cecilie and I have no fever
today, but Joakim has a fever of 39,2 celcius. It seems that
Cecilie are getting well quite fast, luckily. We have all had
fever for 5-6 days, but Cecilie only had it for one day. I am
happy to see that at least she seems to get well fast.
Unfortunately Cecilie and
Joakim has gotten ill too, so today we are staying at home, all
3 of us.
I am still warm in one
minute and cold in the next. I am getting tired of being ill. I
don't have the energy to do anything. Not housework, and not
even scrapbooking, which I really love to do. I still have lots
of photos wich are just waiting to come into our albums, but
this will have to wait until I am well.
Our weather is still cold,
with no snow, but lots of strong wind. This morning, at 7.30 AM,
I put my hand out of the kitchen window, and took this picture:
I am still ill, and I am home
from work today too. I still have got fever, and my head and
This morning Charles went for
his third and last trip. In January, he spent a couple of days
in Barcelona, in February he was in another Spanish town for one
day and one night, and now he is on a trip to Sweeden, our
neighbour country. Charles was looking very much forvard to this
trip. They are going to sleep one night at an ice hotel. You can
read about the ice hotel here:
Here are a couple of photos of the ice hotel:
The King of Norway is 70
years today! Happy birthday, dear King.
I have not been at work
yesterday nor today. I have got the flu. I have fever and my
Yesterday I was sleeping almost the entire day, but
today I am better. But I still have got fever and I feel that I
am not able to go to work. Charles has also been ill (for 5 days),
Morten was ill too, the day before me. And he is still ill.
Cecilie and Joakim is well. I hope that we have not given our
flu to them. We'll see during the next days.
It's very cold here now.
Today it's 11 degreez Celcius below zero and a cold wind.
We have still not sold our
old appartment. We are renting it out, but we are loosing a lot
of money each month, so we are hoping to sell the appartment as
soon as possible. Unfortunately it is not the seller's market in
our town right now. Very few houses and appartmens are getting
Yesterday a lady came to see
our old appartment. We are very exited to hear if she and her
husband wishes to buy it.
We really, really hope that
we will succeed this time...
I love to read, and now I
have just finished reading a book written by Mary Higgins Clark:
Girls in Blue
In a riveting
thriller, worldwide bestselling suspense writer Mary Higgins
Clark brilliantly weaves the mystery of twin telepathy into a
mother's search for a kidnapped child, presumed dead.
When Margaret and
Steve Frawley come home to Connecticut from a black-tie dinner
in New York, their three-year-old twins, Kathy and Kelly, are
gone. The police found the babysitter unconscious, and a ransom
note from the "Pied Piper" demands eight million dollars.
Steve's global investment firm puts up the money, but when they
go to retrieve the twins, only Kelly is in the car. The dead
driver's suicide note says he inadvertently killed Kathy.
At the memorial,
Kelly tugs Margaret's arm and says: "Mommy, Kathy is very scared
of that lady. She wants to come home right now." At first, only
Margaret believes that the twins are communicating and that
Kathy is still alive. But as Kelly's warnings become
increasingly specific and alarming, FBI agents set out on a

written by Mary Higgins Clark, I loved this book too. It was

snow this week, and it has been pretty warm weather, so much of
our snow has melted away. Today it's 4 degreez Celcius.
Both Morten and Charles came
home at Thursday, so now the whole family are together again.
At Thursday, I went to see
the doctor. I asked him to take a blood test of me, to check why

went to see her at Thursday too. Later, the same day, I went to

Winter weather. (8 to 9 degreez Celsius below zero, and
sunny weather). But this weekend we have had 3 degreez Celsius
below zero, and some snow.
In Norway, we are used to the
fact that it is dark in the morning, when we go to work and
school. and before we are going home again, it has turned dark
again, (in Wintertime), but now we are very happy to see that
it is beginning to get more light here.
not much going on here nowdays, so I don't have much to write
about in my blog.
We are tired of
working with our new house for over 6 months, and we are
relaxing and enjoying our new home now. But when the snow
dissappeares, and the Spring is coming, we are going to work
more with our house.
At Thursday, I
went danicing again, like I do each Thursday. And at Friday, I
went to a dancing course. I was supposed to do this at
Saturday too, but I had a terrible headace, so I stayed home,
and used the day to tidy our bedroom.
I have posted a
new photos from our bathroom
Today I have
been cleaning, while Charles has been at the
athletic club's skiing cottage. He
has participating in arranging a skiing competition for young
kids. Cecilie, Joakim and I went there too, and
went skiing for a little trip:
I have taken
more photos today too. You can find them
leaving for Spain tomorrow. He is travelling together with
other car salesmen. Another one of their suppliers are paying for
this travel. (He also was in Barcelona in January.) This will
be his second trip this year, payed by one of their suppliers.
They are only going to stay in Spain for one day and one night.
Sunday February 4th
We have had a computercrash, and we have not been able to use
our computer for a few days. But, luckily Charles managed to
save our documents. We don't know if our e-mails are lost, yet.
I went dancing. Thursday is
"dancingday" for me.
But, before I
to dance, I
to the ear aqupunkturer. I use to go to her 3-4 times a year, to
get rid of headace. If I do this 3-4 times a year, I have almost
no headace. I have noticed that I am starting to get headace
often, now. So it
time to go to get ear aqupunkture again.
I will go to her next week too. It's often best to do this twice.
Then it workes better.
At Thursday I bought a plant
which I have wished to buy for a long time, but I belived that
this plant was too expencive. But at Thursdag, the shop sold
this particular plant for half the prize. I was very happy, and
bought it at once! The plants name is
Araucaria heterophylla. It's a mediterranian plant, which are
supposed to get dry betveen each time it's been watered. Here
you can see a photo of the plant:
A few weeks ago, we saw a
training machine on a
TV commercial. We decided to buy it, and it came in the mail on
Thursday. Joakim and Charles put it up, while I was at my dance.
So now I hope that we will be clever and use the machine often,
and that we will see any results, after some weeks...
Today we have had a pretty
nice weather: 2 degreez Celsius, but we have had a couple of
hailstorms in betveen the good weather.
This weekend I have been
I have not done this since we
bought our new house. I have been scrapping all our photos from
2006 (and that was a lot of photos! I love taking photos!) Now I
am finished with Charles and my album, but I have not had time
to write comments to the photos yet. I just got started with
Cecilie's album, but then I had used all of the glue, and had to
stop. I just have to buy new glue, and than I may continue.
