A cute gift from a pen pal.

Yesterday I got a very nice gift from my friend and pen pal in Canada. I love the socks with the cute dogs on! =) Thank you very much J. I wish you a Happy New year for yourself and your's as well. =)

I am currently up in the mountain area at my in-law's for the weekend. It's so relaxing, no house work waiting for me and I can do everything else that I like. I have some lettersets with me so I can answer the letters I have waiting. I also brought the book I am reading.

There is no fireworks in this area on New Years Eve so it will be a family dinner night - we'll have moose fondue. =)

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY!!!! Have a nice celebration and we'll catch up in 2011.

Some of the gifts.

Here are some of the nice presentes I got for Yule (Christmas) this year. =) Above is a Lavender candle and a lavender soap.

Some nice stickers and post-its from my dear pen pal M. in The Netherlands. Thank you M!

I agreed to exchange gifts with my Norwegian pen pal R. and she gave me all these nice things. =) Thank you R!


This alien looking thingie is an automatic stirrer. You just place it into the kettle with the sauce and turn it on (battery driven), and it stirs for me! Yey! =D This is one of the hottest gifts this year in these parts, I was going to buy one for someone and they were all sold out. =( The girl told me the boss had flown to England herself to pick someone up, still they had a waiting lits of 50!!

Frode's brother gave us two super cool snowmobiling films.

My boss' gave me two sets of these designer cutlery (12 persons).


My little sister gave us this super cool holder for our Dolce Gusto coffee tablets. =)


My parents gave both me and Frode a lap top pillow (we wished for it), but this was a little more fancy than we were hoping for! LOL! It's got a fan underneat and loud speakers on each sides. I love Logitec gadgets and this does not disappoint for sure. Soooo comfertable to sit with the lap top in the sofa (like I'm doing right now). =)

Wish you all a wonderful holdiday still!

Stationary and pads

Got some lovely stationary and pads in the mail today! =D Lovely!

Got it from www.janetstore.url.tw and www.lettersets.com. I love both shops very much and they always give me good service. =)

Now I'm gonna pack for our trip to my in-laws this weekend. I can hardly wait because she picked up her puppy today! =D A German Shepherd.

I am surounded by puppies these days as my boss has an Australian Kelpie at 8 months and my coworker just picked up her baby English staffordshire Bull Terrier a week ago. He is only 9 weeks old and such a cutie!! =)

Yule tradition

Decorating a ginger bread house is a tradition we have for Yule. This year I so cheated as I bought one at the food store, and attatched it myself... I know! It's not the same... But at least it feels like Yule and it sure smells like Yule. =)


I attatched it with home made caramell (melted sugar) from the oven pan.


I didn't like the tiles so I made some bigger ones. From a distance it looks great.


Honestly, I'm a disaster in the kitchen... I guess I'm just clumsy and it shows in this decoration, but I am happy anyway. It could have been worse... Right? =P


Frode is satisfied and as long as it tastes as good as it seem it'll be Yule this year as well. =)

My Christmas gift!

I've already got my X-mas gift from Frode! A sowing machine! I sooo wanted one for years, but the prices have been a little too much. Then here the other day we went into this Coop store and I saw this one on a discount for the members.

It so happened that I had my mom's membership card beacuse she wishes for a woolen blanket for X-mas. Unfortunatly they were sold out of blankets that very day. =( But the trip wasn't wasteful when I got me this one. =)

I've already used it on two of my clothes to fix them. =)

* Good night, sleep thight, don't let the bed bugs bite. *

and of course loads of candy. =)

Do you have any Halloween decoration tips for me? I would love to hear from you. Also do you celebrate All Hollows Eve? =)

Working out!




Yes, your read correct!=D
I have even bought new training shoes for the first time in 13(!) years! LOL! I have already worn them 3 times, two times Frode and I have been out walking and one time I've been at this gym nearby my job.

I usually hate gyms as people often come there to check out men/ women, but this gym I go to now seems different and more like a regular gym. =) It pretty small and the people there seems nice,
not the crazy work out people or the newly divorced ones that are desperate to meet somebody new. ;o) So, I joined the gym and will try go there as often as I can. =P

Hillarious dancing!


Women are strange and scientists will try to figure out the weirdest things sometimes...

This is a case where the scientists have done some research on how we women like dancing, meaning dacing guys in this case. Well, you have some good dancers out there, but most of them are like the first one up on this animation video, take a looksee:

http://www.vg.no/nyheter/innenriks/artikkel.php?artid=10044760

The research team is from the US and this is some of the conclusive facts about the perfect dance:

- The size of the dance movements in the neck, upper body, left shoulder and wrist. (Why the left shoulder...? Is it like if they have bigger dance movements on the right shoulder we women will go "uh-uh, not you."?)

- variation in the dance movements in the neck area, upper body, left wrist and the most funny fact, the speed of the movement on the right knee! HAHA!

I didn't know I was looking for all THIS! LOL! =D

This song has made me weep more than once...



Today we are up for a trip to Oslo to go book shopping and then see the new Warg Veum movie in the theatre. =) It'll be a nice day indeed.

Tomorrow is Frode's 32nd birthday (ssshhh...that is top secret) and his brother will come with girlfriend and baby.

Have a super weekend everyone!

My new shoes...

They are not comfortable, but I think they are sexy with the right outfit. =P


Tonight I've been to a stand-up show, which was really funny. I had to walk one kilometer to the train station...


I guess Oslo is't built for women in high heels, i can not belive all the places my heal tries to trip me over!! Hahaha!=D Vanity kills for sure.;-)

What cute fellas!

I have bought a new compact camera a Casio H-10 with 10x optical zoom, as I have so many times wished I could take closer shots. I am happy I got it when we visited the zoo, I got some good shots I think. =)

(The bird is actually laying on it's side with the wing out, to get as much as it can from the sun. Never seen anything like it, it was rather funny!)



Haha, this must be the boss of monkey island!
