Can you really blame me…??

Dearest friends all over…

Can you really blame me?? I have been off the blog for a while.. tired and exhausted…..and I am so sorry I have even neglected to visit you!

But you see…

I met up with family members living a six hours drive from my house…. Lucky enough they came here..

My sister and her family…. and I just love them all to bits… especially my sisters new grand-daughter.. she’s the cutest little thing.. both her parents are deaf.. our little sweety can hear, but talks sign language!!


It was so much fun getting to meet them all again.. we haven’t met since last year..

We went for a long walk and saw many old friends and neighbours at our little home town….. it was great fun!!!

Also spotted some sheep and lambs..


Isn’t he cute??


He came closer….  I think lambs are adorable creatures!!

Well… anyway.. hooking up with long “lost” family was alot of fun, and I finnally see things start to fall back to normal, as my co-workers are getting better and coming back to work! So tomorrow I have a full day off …finnally!

the weather has turned back to normal (cold) again.. and the summer temperatures are vanished! But we had great days as long as it lasted…

This coming weekend is May 17th.. and that is our national day since 1814… and May 17th has been celebrated since the end of the 1800s….

And as I told you the “bunad” will come out of peoples closets….. go here to find out more:



I will promise you that there will be photos from this day…

It’s a busy day, so I am starting to think of what to eat that day.. I will have to make it ahead… and have it ready for sunday… and there will be cake of course….

speaking of cake

My husbands eldest daughter turned 18 yesterday.. and I made her a cake

take a look at this:


How did you like that??? It’s not perfect,, but I am happy with the result!

Birthdaygirl and her boyfriend look pretty happy!

These are our kids.. when they were younger.. can you spot my husbands daughter at the top??

She has been in my life since she was one year old…so she’s known me all of her life! It’s great to see her off into her own life as a grown-up… still it’s sad that time has gone by this quickly!


Well you guys.. there’s more to come from me.. but have to stop now .. it’s getting late!!

I have missed you! thanks for your patience!!

Lots of love
