My head these days feels a bit like mush. I’m very much looking forward to the holidays. And I have high hopes that summer will finally arrive in Stavanger at some point this year so you don’t have to go out with a big coat and still be a bit cold. This week has been filled with a lot of neglected social duties. Duties might sound like a negative loaded word, but finding the time to see family and friends is hard sometimes. And every time I have to say no to someone who I don’t get a chance to see to often I get a bit guilty. A nice bi product of being social is often nice food.This week, as I said, I decided I needed to take the time to be a yes person. So on Tuesday I went to have cheese and crackers with the women at work. There was abundance of lovely cheeses and crackers and for dessert we had strawberries with vanilla sauce. We went to visit one of the girls and the view from her kitchen and living room was so stunning I had to take a photo.
Wednesday I was invited to my parents for dinner with them, my brother and my granddad. A family friend dropped in for dessert and coffee. Lovely salted cod with bacon-onion-butter sauce and potatoes and berries and a nice raspberry/blueberry cobbler for dessert.
Today I had a job interview and I met my mum in town and she treated me to lunch. I had a nice salad with chicken, tomatoes and avocado. I’m soon off to see some friends for a cup of coffee this evening. That would more than fill my social quota this week, so this weekend I’m spending with my dad at our summer-house. I’m hoping the rain can keep away for one weekend so I can get some much-needed house-painting done.
