It's only one month left for
Christmas! In our town, we don't have any snow, yet. It's nice
and warm (5-6 degreez Celcius). It doesn't seem to be winter.
Actually I am very happy about this warm and nice weather, but
when the snow is missing, I don't get a Christmas spirit. I
hope that we will be able to move into our new house soon.
Then we will be able to relax and enjoy the evenings, light
candles and just do nothing. I beleve that the Christmas
spirit will come, when we do this.
This week I have been very

I have started to pack more
stuff from our old appartment, and moved it to our new house.
This takes a lot of time. Much more than I beleved that it
would. I also have put up curtains in Cecilie and Joakims new
I can't belive that we have
been working with our new house for 6 months now! No wonder we
Charles is still working with
our new bathroom. Now the floor is finished. But we must wait
for about a week for some glue to get dry, before we put up
the wall boards. When the wall boards are up, we are going to
put up the dusch and move the bathroom furnishins into our new
bathroom. I have put up the bathroom furnishings, several
weeks ago. This furnishings are now placed in different rooms
in the house.
Charles and I had a day
off from our works yesterday. We put up more of the new roof in the
new part of our house.
Today, Charles and a
friend, put up more of the new roof. But, they did not get enough roof
boards. We must order new roof boards, and wait to get them, until we
finish the roof of the new part of our house. We are going to change
the roof of the old part of the new house, next year.

After working with our
new house the entire day, we went home to eat homemade pizza.
I was practising one
hour after work today.
Charles went to our new
house, when he finished work. After my practising, eating dinner and
doing some housework, I went to our new house, too. Cecilie and I
started putting up her new desk today. After 3 hours, we went home. I
am going to try to finish putting up the desk at Friday. Tomorrow I am
going to dance, and Cecilie is going to swim.
If the weather is okey
at Friday, Charles and I are going to take a day off from our works.
We are going to put up more of the new roof in the new part of our
house. Charles and his two friends put up half the roof of the new
part of our house at Sunday. I will not be able to help Charles as
good as his two friends, but it's better for him that I will be there.
At least he will not be alone, working.
Thuesday November 7th
Both Charles and I are
getting tired, after working with our new house for half a year, now.
Today we have been expecially tired, both at work, and after work,
when we were supposed to work with our new house. I have bought a new
desk for Cecilie today, but we did not put it up today. We just
carried it indoors and put it on Cecilies floor. (It's in "thousand
parts" and must be put up by us.) When we had used all our moulding,
today, we did not have the energy to start working with something
else. We just wrote down on a piece of paper, what we need, to finish
with the moulding. Then we went home. We'll hope that we will have
more energy tomorrow.
We did not finish with the roof of the new part of our new
house, yesterday, but we were not able to work with this today,
because of the strong wind and rain.
Cecilie and Joakim went to the Cinema today, together with a
friend of Joakim. They watched the movie "Over the hedge". They
loved the movie!
Because of the bad weather, we have been working indoors in our
new house today. Charles has put up some moulding. (Until it was
empty. We have to buy some more moulding.)
I have been painting the corner moulding at Joakim's room today.
After the movie, Cecilie and Joakim brought their schoolbooks to
the new house, and did some homework there, while Charles and I
Sunday November 5th
Today we have been at our new house. We have been working
outdoors the entire day. Charles and two friends have been
putting up the new roof on halv the new part of the house. I
have been painting a wall, outdoors, on the house. We have been
working since breakfast (at 9 AM), until it started to get dark
(at 4.30 PM).
We have not been cold, even if we have been outdoors the whole
day. But when it was dark, it started to blow a cold wind. It
was freezing cold. It was very cozy to go home to our
and light a fire in the stove.

I have also updated the

updated. I am sorry, but my aquarium blog is only in Norwegian.
Saturday November 4th
It has been raining a lot, and all the snow has gone. It's a
pity the snow did not last one more day. Today I had planned to
take photos of Cecilie and Joakim in the snow, to see if I could
make a Christmas card out of one of the photos. But, it's
possible that we will try to take some photos anyway. We'll se.
We are going to our new house today too. Charles is out in some
shops now, to look for some moulding.
We have also planned to put up the curtains at the livingroom in
our new house, today. Even if we have not moved in yet, it's
nice to have curtains there. We are going to put up the "winter
curtains" that we used in our appartement last winter. In our
appartement, were we still live, we still have the pale colours,
diffuse curtains that we use in Summertime. I have not bothered
to change into winter curtains in our appartement. We are going
to move soon, so I just have the Summer curtains up, until we
We were working in our new house all day. Charles put up all the
moulding at Joakim's rom today, and was almost finished at
Cecilie's room too. We also put up the curtains in the
It was almost impossible to take a photo in the livingroom,
without getting all our stuff on the photo. Since we have not
moved in to our new house yet, we have lots of boxes, furnitures
and tools over the whole livingroom. It's quite messy there just
Thursday November 2nd
Even if the snow we got, a couple of days ago, melted again, we
have, during today, got more snow. Not very much (about 10
centimetres). Enough to let us get a bit into Christmas spirit.
Today is Thursday, and I am going to dance.
