Among the things I really like when I am in the country is to visit the local pub.
We where lucky to have the opportunity to stay in a private house with a lovely couple who are friends with my parents. And of course they took us to "their" pub, the Boat Inn. Lovely place by the canal.
We are back from a very nice and exciting trip to England.
We went to a part of the England that we have never been in before, the lovely Midlands. The train took us through the Peak District with green, rolling hills and pictoresque villages. Later I heard that the englishmen call this mountains but for us Norwegians I guess we still call this hills.......
Husband decided last evening to take the car today and drive to Basel for the watch expo. I doubt he would do that if not his friend had called him last night and more or less "forced" him to Switzerland. Anyway, he will spend the days with his friend and the designer of my watch, Mister Bruvik himself.
I love my ceramic, white watch with 11 diamonds designed by this Norwegian.
Cross fingers that he will come home with a present?!
Since we came home on Monday I have more or less spent my time in the sofa. You might say that my back wasn't to happy doing all the lifting, moving, painting etc last week. But however, I am today back in my normal position and after some grocery shopping I went to the troc in Belgium. I found many things I liked, and some things I even bought, as this terrine from Winterling. Perfect today since the rest of the family voted for soup for dinner tonight :-)
