Just the way it is....
Monday, 28 December 2015
If this is Nina's bike outside her place, I hope she will be careful using it. Many roads are icy.
Some of us are going back to work today.... but it is quieter now, unless you work at a place with one of the big SALES starting today. It is also the day to change that "not so perfect Christmas present".
Have a nice day wherever you are.

Flying home for Christmas......
They looked so cute and ready for their Christmas holiday.
I met them at the airport an hour ago, waiting for the plane to Oslo.
Then they will fly to Frankfurt and continue home to Bucharest / Romania.
From the left, the two sisters, Elisa and Alexandra, cousin Olivia and her boyfriend Victor.
I wish you all a HAPPY HOLIDAY!
We have rain, hail and a bit of lightning.
I am still dreaming about a white x-mas.

Congratulations to SANDNES
This year I seriously think SANDNES (the first town south of Stavanger, and in many ways our neighbour) have managed to create a fantastic and real Christmasy feel. Well done!
I think Sandnes did better than Stavanger. (In some ways I am sorry to admit it.)
Sandnes is only 20-30 minutes drive from the city centre of Stavanger.

The annual exhibition.
The annual exhibition of Children´s Christmas drawings / paintings, can be seen at Stavanger Aftenblad. ( Our biggest newspaper.)
It is so colourful and nice. This is just one out of many, and one I really liked.
The artist is Emilie Marie Trædal, who must be 9 or 10 years old, according to the info. that was written next to the artistic work.
Look at all the details.

This weekend we will have some "extreme weather" with lots of rain, but anyway, I guess there will still be plenty of people out shopping.
I will have a relaxed weekend.
If it is not too bad tomorrow morning..... I might head off to a Christmas market.
Do you have plans for the weekend?

Only India is cheaper...
Not many things are cheap in Norway.
Most tourists realise that fairly quickly.
Anyway, the diapers are subsidised by the state, but again and again, the diapers are very often sold out to foreigners who buy here and re-sell them back home.
If cars filled up with diapers are stopped by customs the fine is huge.
You can only buy for N. kr. 5000
Only India is cheaper than Norway when it comes to diapers.

New in town.
I suddenly found myself sitting next to a talented young Greek woman, who spoke excellent English and had been studying in London.
She had a book filled with drawings and ideas, and had been living in Norway for a month with her Norwegian boyfriend.
I 'm sure she will continue to do very well with the fashion and design business she has started.
Find inspiring people and a workplace where you can use your many talents.
The best of luck, CHRYSA!!

Lace dresses this year.
The Duchess of Camebridge nailed this trend last month....and Norwegian women look like they copy the plum-hued lace dress.
They are shown in most fashion shops (like here in Breigaten).
Yesterday evening it looked like this is "THE" dress for X-mas parties in 2015.
I went to a hotel and seriously, I have never ever seen so many lace dresses in my life.
Perhaps the style and colour is common in many other countries?

Sola Strand Hotel.
This is the fireplace at the reception area at Sola Strand Hotel, an old hotel, dating back to 1914. Renovated and decorated, and also today a popular place for weddings, business meetings, Sunday lunches as well as a place to meet friends for just a coffee or a drink. It is close to the airport and only 15 min. by car from the centre of Stavanger.
They have a popular spa area, and the best location with the beaches just on the doorstep.
We have strong wind, perhaps even storm this weekend (?)
Well, wherever you are: HAPPY WEEKEND!
