I am in fact still alive and kicking. But I have been very busy and a bit stressed lately. In addition to being a very busy time of year in general I have been traveling a bit both with work and privately. Hopefully I will have some time to update you more on this soon.
As if things was not busy enough now, I decided that I wanted to buy a bigger place and I have put my beloved little appartment up for sale. Had I fully realize how much work this would be I’m not sure I would have done it. For those who want to see where I live here is a link to the add.
Hope all that all of you are doing well.
Last week I wasn’t feeling too well and had to stay in bed for a couple of days with a fever. So this weekend I did not have much planned a part from relaxing and sleeping. But then came Friday and a friend of mine was going in to town and asked if we could meet up for a curry and a beer. She had a ferry to reach at ten o’clock so I thought I might as well be a little social this weekend even if I was not up for a big party. We had a nice evening but by the time I came home I was very tired and went straight to bed.
On Saturday I actually managed to sleep in a bit and I did some much needed tidying up in the apartment and ran some errands. In the evening another friend asked if I wanted to come to the movies with her and after the film we went out for a couple of drinks at a friends cocktail bar. The movie was good and the company and drinks was excellent. But once again I managed to be sensible and get home quite early so I didn’t ruin the next day.
Sunday was very Sunday-like. I stayed in read some blog posts, participated in #Sundayblogshare. I continued cleaning my apartment and have finally begun some much needed de-cluttering work. Today, Monday I woke up at 03.30, so I imagine this day will end earlier than planned, but I hope I will be a good girl and continue the work I started over the weekend this week.
Hope you all had a weekend as good as mine.
I was a maid of honour at my friends wedding last weekend. The wedding took place at an old hotell in a small place called Sauda. The hotell is located in beautiful suroundings and we were lucky enough to get a room facing the fjord.
View from the hotell
Sauda is a place locateded deep in a fjord and it has quite a beautiful scenary. The town itself is built largely around a big smelting factory of old that is still running today. As you can see from the photos the mountains by the fjord are quite tall and on the night of the wedding the first snow of the year came down on the highest mountains.

It was a beautiful day for the wedding and we there was loads of fun, tears and laughter. Good food and good company. All the guests and the Bride and Groom seemed very happy.

Waterfall from the start of the walk
Last Sunday the weather was lovely and we decided to stop for a little walk on our way down from the wedding.
As we were close to Svandalsfossen, a lovely waterfall, we thought it would be nice to walk up to have a look.
The waterfall is at it’s most impressive when the snow on the mountains are melting, but I thought it was a great slight in autumn as well. It sure was noisy enough!
