Its a Bank holiday here so of course the weather is totally shite again. Henrik is busy working on his portfolio and Im busy finding us a home in Oslo whilst Henrik laughs hysterically each time I pronounce something strangely in Norwegian! (which is often)
Im off work for the rest of the week as it's half term and I've got my mum coming for a visit tomorrow.

This week my school sent me on a Lets get cooking course to teach me how to teach children how to cook. It's all about starting a national network of clubs (usually run as an after school club) across England,helping children,their families and the wider community to learn and develop new cooking skills. I had great fun learning quick and simple recipes including these tasty herb,olive and sundried tomato scones (just a basic scone recipe minus the sugar) Simples!

An early start at a car boot sale,cake making, friends over to eat the cake,Henrik working on updating his portfolio then a Dexter marathon whilst slumped on the sofa- that was our Sunday. This crappy May weather is driving me nuts, please give us a summer this year! We deserve it!
(btw the muffins are bran and cinnamon and the cakes are sticky date cakes and soooooooooo good!)

We got up early to beat the rain and go to a few car boot sales, but apart from that we have had another day pottering around at home, Henrik making a tank model (the soldiers are finished!) and me making jam tarts and cakes to give to the little kiddywinks in my class on my birthday this Tuesday. Almost 37! How did I get there!!?

In the great British tradition this weekends bank holiday weather has been shite! We have spent most of it at home doing little jobs that we can never be bothered doing (all my summer clothes are washed and ready to wear, winter clothes packed away) Henrik was on candy man mode,scoffing as many goodies as he could. I made a big pan of scouse which is a dish I used to eat every Saturday as a kid at my grandmothers house in Liverpool, funnily enough it originates from Norway where it is called Lapskaus and Henrik used to have it as a child too (We also ate it at our wedding as we thought it tied our two cultures together quite nicely!)

I had 2 breakfasts today, one at 7am (when I woke up) and the other at 11.15 (when Henrik woke up!) Its pouring with rain so the car boots sales we planned on visiting are cancelled and we are now having an afternoon of housework,cooking and laundry.Ugh, Stupid weather! (On the upside I do have a very nice piece of lamb slow roasting in the oven...)

After a warm and sunny April,the month of May has arrived bringing stormy looking skies (typical really as it's a Bank Holiday so its to be expected!) After a very hard week at work we
are now relaxing- Henrik playing computer games and me baking ( that fruit tart is for pudding today-yum!)
