Charles har lenge ønsket seg Kystdrakten. For et par år siden, fant jeg ut at dette kunne være en fin gave fra meg til han, på hans 50 årsdag. Jeg begynte da å spare et fast beløp i måneden, og bestilte Kystdrakten til han. Charles blir 50 år den 31. mai, men han fikk Kystdrakten sin til 17. mai, så han kunne bruke den da. Fra alle sine søsken, fikk han Kasjettlua, kniven og et treskrin til å oppbevare sølvet i.

 

17. mai 2007 (May 17th 2007)

For a long time, Charles has been wishing to have a kind of "bunad" called "Kystdrakten". A couple of years ago, I started to save money, to buy this outfit for his 50th birthday. (This outfit is handmade. Both the bunad and the emroidery on the bunad. There is only one company in Norway which makes this special bunad.)

Charles' birthday is at May 31st, but I gave him his gift early in May, so that he would be able to use this "bunad" at Norway's birthday, at May 17th. From all of his brothers and sisters, and their families, he got the hat, a knife and a wooden box to keep the silver that belongs to the bunad, in.
