Last Christmas

Sitting here trying to find some motivation to work, and whats better than reliving last christmas and looking forward to this years christmas break. Because going home for christmas is really the best award I can get for finishing my work. Looking at it that way I feel I HAVE to work hard to finish.

Oh last christmas was so amazing~! But I am realizing how little pictures I took, and how little I edited. This year I a going to take loads of photo, post like crazy and memorize everything tight into my bone. This year is extra special because I am further away than normally. I am in a situation where I’m not only looking forward to go home, I am also looking forward to get back to Norway. I am also missing a lot of people this year, usually it’s just a few. And I miss someone really really dear to me, M. It makes the going-home-for-christmas-feeling extra strong.

So here's some pictures from last year christmas and new year~!

Cafe Deli Breakfast

On Saturday the 7th of October I overslept a bit and had to get up in a rush. Because I am always the one using longest time to get ready in the morning I had decided to get up a bit early. We had to check out around 11AM, and the staff was kind enough to keep our luggage with them.

Since it was another beautiful morning we decided to walk and find a place to get a simple breakfast. Remembering we walked past two cute looking café’s on out way to the heart of Birmingham on the day before, we settled for Café Deli.

I absolutely adore the interior in here. So friendly.

I think this is the first place that I have been that serves oatmeal with bananas. Don’t even think I have seen that in Norway. And they made us cups of really strong coffee. Perfect in a rushed sunday morning.

I look like I have a blue eye because of the light....

After that we walked the centre and took a taxi to the National Sea-life centre. It was quite a bumpy ride. We had agreed on that we needed to do something tourist-ish when we was there. And I got a crazy amount of pictures from there, which I’ll blog another day when I have more time. I should really be in bed right now. The dissertation proposal has been keeping me awake.

Cake x2

So I just ate two cakes and wanted do rub it right in your face! Okay, I havent really eaten two cakes today, but I ate mums lovely cake at Thursday and H lovely cake at saturday, and just wanted to share the pictures!

This was really a cake for people with a sweet tooth.

But it was really yummy! Mum made it for our evening with pictures from mum & dads trip to France. To Lyon to visit my sister to be exact. It was a lovely afternoon with a tremendous amount of pictures, and a lot of french candies~! Ugh, now that I think about it – Way to much sugar!

Red tread - strawberry cake, strawberry drink!

This weekend I went up to Bodø to spend it at H place and just be with people and relax. We fought to stay awake to watch the opening of the olympic games in London. We just couldn’t go to bed without seeing the fire being lit. Then I shopped some stuff while H made the place ready for dinner with nice folks. I still can’t believe we bought an entire salmon for dinner! But it was a lovely dinner, and of course we had to have cake afterwards!

Sweet weekend pt.2

Saturday was a pretty lazy day, and I guessed we all needed it. I felt pretty content with just watching tv or laying on the floor keeping the bunny with company. Of course some pictures where snapped that day too, so here is some of them :)

Lele with her hair extentions~ Pretty^^

I am in love with this blurry pic, idk why...

Me & Lele wearing our light sunday make-up~

My B-day gift to Lele some years ago~

I love how she has decorated this place in the living room~

This sign fits her so well! Love it~

 

I adore this pic of their super big clock on the wall, it’s so elegant and decorative.

Sweet Weekend pt.1

Here is some pictures from the weekend I spent at my friends Lele&JP’s place. I just came home a few hours ago~ I always hate the feeling I get when a good weekend is over, so I figured I should edit some memories (pics). These are pictures from saturday~ It was a lovely day with pancakes for breakfast, a hard workout on arms, a walk to the store because I forgot my toothbrush, a lovely taco dinner and a few drinks. And always in company of Lele’s cute bunny, Møffin~

Isn't she lovely?

We drank a loooot of coffe~

Cute bunny and owner! :)

What I wore that day

Matching the environment pretty well huh? Anyways, during the weekend I have decided that I want a bunny myself, might be some years too, but I definitely want one~! They are shuch charming and lovely creatures.

07.07-08.07: Last Weekend~

Photos from the last two days M spent here, before he had to leave. As usually I remembered to snap photos sometimes and other times I totally forgot. I guess I was to busy enjoying life right there and then. I still am, because stuff is working out pretty good for me! What stuff that is I’ll update you all on later. Back to the post, these are the last pictures from that weekend. One last sappy post!

Saturday + sun = BBQ!

It was an amazing sunny summer day that saturday, but sadly a cold wind made it a bit chilly. But nothing could stop us that day, except rain, we were determined to BBQ before M left. It’s always such a funny and lovely event.

I love this overexposed picture.

Yummy looking bits of fish~!

And it totally was - so tasty~!

From sunday :)

It was a lovely sunny day too, I am happy that M got two days with this weather before he left. On sunday we just enjoyed the sun, talked and M packed while I kept asking if he had remembered everything. Still he managed to forget one shorts and a jacket.

5 mins until it was time to walk to the bus stop..

Lovely view and purple flowers by the stop.

The bus leaving with M on it...

If any one wonders, yes it was pretty sad. But we had such a lovely time! Besides, I get to see him again in August. And oh boy, I am looking so much forward to it. Visiting t-town, seeing friends and people I got to know during this school year again. But yes, what I am looking the most forward to is to spend days with M again~

06.07 – Fish, Strawberries and a cat.

Here's a bunch of pictures from the friday M spent here.

It is basically 3 different shoots of different happenings through the day. The weather was gray and cold, a big contrast to the previous day.

Anyways, we started the morning with frying the sea-trout M got and eating it on slices of bread for breakfast. It is really amazing to eat something that is so fresh out of the sea. It tasted super yummy!

Since the weather was lousy we decided to do some shopping

M had to endure a tiny hour in a local clothing store, which had a 3 for 2 sale. And I found one lovely mint green top, a black t-shirt and a hot pink sweater, after trying some 5-6 pieces of clothing. Afterwards we paid my favorite store a visit  – the local Thai store! I can spend hours there if somebody let me. So after some shopping we got really hungry and decided to eat at the hotel. Which was really nice.

Later that day mum had bought some norwegian strawberries that we ate with cream milk and sugar. Gosh, it was so delicious! Norwegian strawberries taste like heaven.

Then our 3rd and youngest cat decided to cuddle, with M!

It’s funny how these pictures makes it look like she is trying to steal M from me. But the truth was that M was scratching her while I was combing her fur. Right there she was the happiest cat in the world. When she decides to cuddle, she can be really intrusive. Both of us had fur all over our clothes afterwards. Still, it was a funny moment for both of us.

This cat us so strange some times!

05.07 – A day on the Rocks

On Thursday morning we got up and drank coffee with JP and Lele, then JP was so kind that he drove us home. After breakfast we decided to go down to the rocks by the sea and enjoy the weather! I laid down to sunbathe, and M borrowed my dads fishing rod. I’m warning you, there’s many pictures so this update is pretty long! It’s been hard to update while M has been here, because I wanted to spend time with him not with my laptop. But he left a few hours ago to catch his plane home…

anyways, the weather was super lovely!

The wind came from north (for the sea), but it was still warm. Which is super rare! Since it was so hot out in the sun it was pretty nice to have that breeze. It made it quite magical down on the rocks, specially when I had someone to share it with. We both laid down to enjoy the sun a bit before M decided to fish some, and I had to kill a few bees with my shoes. They where annoying!

I fell totally in love with this spot!

I love this pic of the sunglasses on his head/hair~

And I adore this blurry pic of a feather in the grass

and the strange clouds on the sky out there!

Multitasking - fishing and tanning!

A shot of the clouds that came closer, wonder how those was made

After a while I had to cool off~!

Time went by so fast, suddenly we had been there for over 4 hours! I accidentally fell asleep while sunbathing and woke up with M nowhere in sight. He had walked around some rocks without telling. Right there I got a bit lost and confused, untill I found him. After a while I had killed 2 almost 3 bees and M had gotten one sea-trout~! After those 4 hours we decided to walk home because we where really hungry.

Reliving the moment and looking at these pictures I really miss him already! It’s my blog, I’m allowed to be a little sappy.

A night walk

Here’s some pictures from the night walk we took when we visited Lele and JP in Storvika. It was a beautiful and strong light in the sky and it looked promising for taking a lot of pictures on the beach, but after a few min it started pouring down – so we had to turn and leave our cameras at home. Still, it was a lovely walk~!
