It is time for Easter Holidays again and it is lovely to have a few days off work. In Norway the Wednesday in the Easter week we have a half day at work, so I used a few of my saved hours and took the day off. I went to the skip in the morning to get rid of some of the old paint that was in the apartment that we are moving out of. I got rid of some bottles and went to get a few things I needed from town before I went up to do a few little jobs at the new house.
Except from last year we have spent the last Easters in Ireland, and I must say that I have not missed traveling to see family this much since last Easter. I wish I could be over there now, but that is sadly not the case. All I can do is to hope for next year (or maybe a little bit before). Ireland sure is a lovely place to be in spring and I long to go back to see the lovely people and scenery.
So this Easter we have decided to take the opportunity to get a few things done in the new house even if the use of power tools are not allowed in the holy week. But we have quite a few jobs that does not require us making too much noise. Among those is painting the stairs, and that sure is a very fiddly job indeed.
We are not just working. We have found the time to go for a few small walks while the weather is quite nice and on Sunday I will travel for an overnight at our summer-house with my mother. We also enjoy some good meals and making sure that we make something lovely out of this time when we were supposed to be somewhere else.
How is Easter treating you so far?
