I had a good time in Oslo last week. And after I had a lovely meal in a nice sushi resturant I went for a good long walk up to a park called Frognerparken that has a nice sculpture park in it with a lot of sculptures made by Gustav Vigeland. It was quite dark when I was there so I didn’t see as much as I would in daylight. But the walk did what I hoped and cleared my head after a long day in the office. And it was lovely walking in the park that I had not visited since childhood. Even if it was dark this time.
I got home late Thursday evening and did not do much after I got home. This weekend it was time to catch up on some of the chores around the house that had been a bit neglected lately, with not being well and then being busy. So after a chilled Friday evening watching TV, I spent most of the day Saturday in the house tidying, cleaning and grocery shopping. It is amazing what you get done when you are two people working. In the evening we had our “Christmas” party with work. It was a lot of fun and a great surprise for us the entertainment was buy a band started by some of the men in the office. Even if I was careful with the alcohol I was not home till late.
I had made sure that I had no major plans for Sunday morning. I got a good sleep in and chilled before I went for a visit to my mother. She kindly gave me a lift to the airport and then it was time for me to go back to Oslo. I am staying here till Tuesday and I have high hopes that I will learn a lot in this hand over. As it is the last one we will get before taking over the task from the Oslo office. The plan for the rest of the evening is to watch Norway’s boys play handball on tv and relax in my room so that I am ready for an early start tomorrow. Hope the weekend treated you well and that you got to do something nice.
