Lovely Winter weather today. Cold, (about -7
degreez Celsius), and partly sunny.
Unfortunately we have not been outdoors much
today. We have been tidying Morten's bedroom (Charles' 20 years
old son). He has been on a course for almost 3 months, and we
have not been doing anything with his bedroom since we moved in
to our new house. But he are coming home in a couple of weeks,
so today we have been putting his furnitures and other stuff in
to his bedroom.

Some of my collegues and I uses to practise
once a week. We have had a long break, since Christmas, but at
Wednesday, we started to practise again.
At Wednesday, I went to the doctor with
Cecilie. Her foot has been hurting for a week, and we had to
find our why. The doctor told us that he beleved that she had
inflammation of a tendon, under her foot. He gave us a
prescription for medicine.
At Thursday I went to dance again.
Tonight Charles and I are going to the annual
meeting for the board of the athletic
club, together with the other board members and their wives. We
are going to stay at the athletic club's skiing cottage, and
have bacalao for dinner.

Yesterday I bought
tow kinds of fished to my little aquarium: (Ancistrus)
new ski equipment, which came in the mail yesterday, was of
course wrong. The shoes were two sizes smaller than we ordered,
and the skies were wrong type too. We must send it back, and
wait to get the correct ski equipment.
Cecilie and Joakim
went to the skiing cottage early this morning. Charles is going to help the athletic club to sell food and coffee from this cottage. Cecilie and Joakim thinks it's fun to help Charles

Tonight it has
been snowing, so now we have gotten real winter weather again.
Joakim went out early this morning, to shovel snow. We have a
small motorized lawn mower, which you are supposed to sit on.
This lawn mower, we have put on something to shovel snow with,
and Joakim thinks it's very fun to use this. During Summer time,
he uses it as a lawn mower, and in Winter time he uses it to

Charles and Joakim

tomorrow. People may come to the cottage and go skiing, and than
buy a cup of coffee, food and other stuff.
Cecilie and I are
at home. I am going to do some housework. Later today, we are
going to take Chico for a long walk in the nice Winter weather.
We are also going
to get to the mail office to get a package. We have ordered a
complete set for skiing for Cecilie. She has grown, and needed
new ski equipment.

Now, almost all of
the snow that we got during the weekend, is gone.
Joakim and I went
to see the doctor yesterday. The doctor checked Joakim and said
that he did not belive that Joakim have had

weekend, and I have managed to do something in our house again.
Now I have emptyed and washed a cabinet which I have sold. I
also have washed our new bathroom furnishings, and put all the
stuff that we will have in the bathroom, into the furnishings.
Our new bath is quite large.
Charles came home
from Barcelona at Friday afternoon. He has had a very nice trip.

I sold my largest aquarium. I have been speaking to the buyers
today, and they told me that all the fishes had survived the
move, and everything went well!
Charles went to
Barcelona yesterday morning. He is travelling together with
other car salesmen. One of their suppliers are paying for the
travel. I have been talking to Charles, in the telephone, both
yesterday and today. He is having a wonderful time in Barcelona!
Joakim went to get
for the second time, yesterday. The therapist told us that we
might go to the doctor at Monday, to see if Joakim is well. I am exited to see if
the ear acupuncture has worked.
I went to the
dentist with Cecilie today. Luckily all her teeth was fine, so
we don't have to come back until next year! We both were very
happy, when we left the dentist.
During today, we
have got about 10 centimetres of snow. I am not very happy about
it. (When we did not get snow for Christmas, I don't need it
now.) But the kids are very happy, of course.
I have decided to
sell my largest aquarium. It's an aquarium made to be placed in
a corner, and it's 105 litres. Our livingroom in our new house,
it a bit smaller than our livingroom in our old appartment, so
we could use some more space. In addition to that, I feel that I
don't have time to do what I have to do, with the aquarium.
(Change water weekly and stuff like that).
I have already
been talking to several people who are interested in buying it,
so I hope that I will be able to sell it soon.
Now I will only
have my small aquarium (it's only 17 litres, but I think it's

I have been working the entire afternoon, to put water, plants

plumber came today too,
so now our new bathroom is almost finished. We may use the
shower, but not the toilet.
It'a a lovely weather
today, but we have not been outdoors. We have been working a lot to
get in order in our new house. I have also been doing some housework.
plumber came today, so
no I belive that it will not be long until we may use our new bathroom.
We are all looking forward to that.
I have taken a photo of

It was very nice to have
Cecilie and Joakim home again.
Joakim is still a bit ill, of his
pneumonia, but he is
better now. He has been at school.
Later today, I am
going to let him get ear acupuncture. The therapist belives that
she may get Joakim well. I am exited to see if it works.
We have bought
ourselves a new coach. First we were considering to buy a wery
expensive one, which was very nice and wery good to sit in. But
we decided to buy another one, instead, which was much cheaper.
We were worried that this cheaper coach would not we good to sit
in, but it was! It was both nice and very good to sit in. We
love our new coach!
We still have not
gotten in order in our new house. We are trying to do something
every day, after work. We still have some boxes and furnitures
that we don't know where to put. And our new bathroom are not
quite finished yet. We are waiting for the plumber.
Yesterday I took
down all the Christmas decorations and our Christmas tree. I was
doing this for several hours. I did not finish until 00.30 AM at
night. But I had a large brake, while I watched
"Ugly Betty" and "Ghost Whisperer"
at the TV.

Today I am going to drive for 3 hours, to get Cecilie og Joakim.
They have been celebrating their Christmas and New Year together
with their father. He lives a 6 hours car ride from us. We are
both going to drive for about 3 hours, and meet. Then Cecilie,
Joakim and I will drive home.
I am looking forward to getting Cecilie and Joakim home again,
but I know they have had a nice Christmas holiday with their
father. I have been talking to them on the phone each day.
