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 and 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. =)
