I almost forgot something. A few weeks ago I sent in picture to a photo competition. The Norwegian interior chain Kremmerhuset would like us to send in a picture they could use as christmas card an to sell them in their shops.
I didn't hear anything from them and I forgot about the whole thing.
So one evening I went in to their blog and there was my picture!
Had a lovely breakfast in town yesterday with a dear friend and her adorable little 6 months old son. After leaving the café we went for a stroll in the streets, and that was a cold experience! Low temperatures and fog is not what I prefer.
So I went home and replaced my summer coats with winter coats, and emptied the basket for summer pillows and filled it with all my warming scarfs.
So now I am a bit more prepared for winter (but just a bit...)
I never start decorating for Christmas before 1st of December, simply because we have some birthdays in the family in the end of November and I like to keep November as an autumn month.
But the other day I saw on the Norwegian morning show that our famous florist blomsterFinn decorated with amaryllis, which is for me a typical christmas flower. I thought: if he can, I can. So when I found these at the shop yesterday I couldn't resist, so they went home with me :-)
Unfortunately our week in Spain did not end up under this palm.
BUT, lucky us received the key for our new holiday home!!!
This week we've been working hard with removing built in wardrobes, shelves and other things that doesn't say 2011. Meeting with different entrepreneurs, making new floor plans in the bathrooms etc made us busy the whole week.
Guess I will keep my fingers busy in the near future.....
