Wednesday May 31st
Today is my husbands 49th
We have had a lot of boxes
standing on our floor. Today I have carried all the boxes
outdoors, and Charles transported them to our new house. We
have not got the key to the house yet, but we have put the
boxes in the garage. I also have been baking a cookie for my
husbands birthday party today. Luckily I have been baking some
other cookies earlier, and put them in the freezer, so I only
have to bake one cookie today.
Today I have bought new curtains for
my kids. I let them deside which kind of curtains ther are going to
have in their new rooms at our new house.
choose to have horses on her curtain, and Joakim wanted the curtain
with the Chinise signs:
This weekend I have
been participating in arranging a great dance arrangement. People from
different places in Norway has come to dance here. I have been working
a lot (in the kitchen, serving, cleaning, washing and so on), and I
have been dancing a lot. So now I am exhausted. But happy. I have had
a very fun weekend. -Dancing a lot!
So, now, when the
big "dance weekend" is over, I can, again, continue planning and
working with packing, sorting and throwing stuff, until we gets our
Monday May 22nd
I have not had much time to
write in my blog, or work with my web site lately. Since we
have bought a "new" house, all my spare time, after work,
goes to packing og sorting our things.
We are going to get our new
house at June 15th, so until then, we must just store our
boxes and cases here in our flat, when we are packing.
Monday May 15th
Morten (Charles' son) was 20 years. We were celebrating his
birthday with Morten and his girlfriend, with taco for
Today, we have had several
guests for coffee and cookies. But, I beleve that I am very
stressed nowdays. I am thinking a lot about our new house,
and about packing and moving. I had made a delicious cream,
with lots of good stuff in. I had been looking forward to
serve, and eat this cream, but I forgot to put it on the
table. We found the cream in the refridgerator when the
guests had left!
After the guest had left, I
started to pack for our moving. I have only been packing 1
box, yet. (With crystal glasses.) But, it's a start. I will
continue packing today.
The man that we are going
to buy the house from, has told us that he will move out
from the house at June 15th. -In just a mont! And, next
Thuesday, we are getting a man, here, to check our house, to
find out what price we can get for our house. -So, now
things are happening very fast!
Today, I have been at the post
office, buying tickets for a theatre at
Dyreparken, where we
are going to wisit at our Summer holiday.
I have also
been baking a cake for a friend of mine, who has a son who is
going to be confirmated tomorrow. They will have a big party,
and needs a lot of cakes. It's two years left until we are
having a confirmation. Cecilie is 12 years old, now. The kids
use to be confirmated when they are 14 years old.
Later today, I
went out into our garden, to divide some of my plants. I am
planning to have some of the plants in our new garden, by our
new house. And, by dividing them, I will not ruin our garden
by our old house
went to take another look at the house that we have bought. We
did not take a proper look, the first time. There were a lot
of people there, that day. Other people who also were
considering to buy the house were there too.
Now we have
taken some pictures, and measured the kitchen and livingroom.
This will make it easier to plan what to do, when we get the
After seeing the house, I went
to dance swingdance.
Today, Joakim went with his
friend, and his friends family, to their cottage, a 2 hours
car ride from where we live. I am sure that thay will have a
nice weekend, even if it's a bit cold. He has warm clothes
have been looking for a house to buy. We have a very small
house plot, where we live now. Our garden is very small. We
even don't have a lown. Our kids, and our dog, don't have much
space to play on. Today we have bought an old house. It was
built in the year 1969. The people who lived in the house,
have not been re-decorating or putting the house in order,
since they built the house, almost 40 years ago.
We have a huge job to do, with
the house. We must change all of the windows, change the roof,
change the boarding, and paint the new boarding (not in the
ugly brown color that the house have, now), we must change and
paint all of the walls and floors, indoors, both the kitchen
and the bathroom must be changed everything (both the
furnishings, the floors and the walls). All of the bedrooms
have old closets that we must remove.
Even if we must do a huge amount
of things, I am looking forward to move to this house. Our
kids, our dog, and my husband and myself are looking forward
to having this great garden, and playing space.
Here you can see a photo of the
house that we have bought:
I am looking foreward to getting started
with changing both the house and the garden.
Monday May 8th
We have now
started on our third week with lovely Spring weather. It's a
pity that some of the days are cold, because of the wind, like
today, but I suppose we are not allowed to complaint. We are not
having any rain, though.
we have been doing some work outdoors. Charles has been doing
some carpentry, and I have been painting some more of my flower
cases og some other stuff. Now all of our flower cases are
having the same nice brown color called "Mocca".)
Here you can see a photo of our house, and some of my new brown
went to by I "new" bed for Cecilie and a chest of drawers for
Joakim. A lady I know, and her husband are going to move, and
they are selling some 1 year old furnitures very cheap.
We also went
for a nice boat ride.
If you wish to see photos, they are here.
Saturday May 6th
been a wonderful week. We have had warm and sunny weather each
and every day. Some days it has been some wind, and some other
days there were no wind at all. Today we had 19 degreez Celsius
at 9 AM!
The last few
days, all of the trees has started to get leaves on. It's lovely
to see that all the plants are turning green now.
after work, we have been outdoors, enjoying the wonderful
weather. But at Thursday I went to dance swingdanse. In spite of
the lovely weather, lots of people were at the dance. (In Norway,
we are not spoiled with nice weather very often, so people often
choose to be outdoors, the few times that the weather is nice,
but it seems that we all love to dance, so we choose dancing
indoors for two hours, than spending the two hours outdoors.)
Monday May 1st
we have done lots of stuff:
been formatting our computer, and as usual, when we do this,
something is going wrong. I lost all of my e-mails and documents.
But fortunately, I had a copy of all my documents from April
22nd, so I did not loose that much. But I know that I had got
some new adoptions, which I only had in my documents, and that
were not at my copy CD, but I am not able to remember which
adoptions there were.
it was World's Day of Dance, and I was dancing for 4 hours, from
12.00 to 16.00.
While I was
dancing, Charles made 3 big flower cases.
Now I have
put soil and plants into the cases, and I have painted them in a
beautyful brown color, called "Mocca". We also have bought a new
bench to have in our garden:
two of Charles' sisters came to our house and had dinner with
us. After dinner, we went to a birthday party, to another one of
Charles' sisters. (He has 4 sisters and 2 brothers). Later this
evening, we went to see a camping ground, where we possible are
going to have our caravan, which we bought at Fall 2005.
We also have
washed down our garden stones, in front of our house, and cut
our hedge and some rose bushes.
May 1st, Cecilie and Joakim exchaged their rooms. We had quite a
job, moving all the furnitures, toys and clothes from one room
We are not
totally finished yet.
kids were both happy about it. Cecilie and Joakim has
their rooms a couple of years ago too, so now they got their
original rooms back.
We have had a
terrible wind the last days, except Saturday, which was a lovely
day, so in spite of the sunny weather, it has not been very nice
to be outdoors. But, we still have been lots outdoors, anyway.
