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!!

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?

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!

They have just moved to Stavanger.
Daddy came first and settled down with his research work and studying.
The rest of the family have not been here for that long, but are all getting to grips with a new life, new culture and not at least our language. Children are often better than adults at picking up a new language. They will be here for some years, and I hope they will enjoy it and explore the region, also with friends and family visiting.
I have to say that I have a soft spot for dogs, especially Labrador Retrievers, and of course I chatted away with the dog in Norwegian. Seriously, I think she understood what I said.

Last night I went to the Concert House.
Bellini's ROMEO and JULIET, by great opera singers: Vivica Genaux, Valentina Farcas, Francesco Marsiglia, Umberto Chiummo and Ugo Guagliardo.
The Symphony Orchestra and Choir all contributed to making it a great concert!
Yes, I know we are not allowed to take pictures, but this is just a snap shot.... to show you a glimpse before the concert started.

It is unusual to be met by an "Admiral" on the doormat this time of year.
Ephemeral is this months theme. Take a look at other theme day pictures here:
