So much snow here and even as I type now it's still coming down. Enough!
It did look beautiful yesterday though so I can't complain too much. I'm now learning to tell the time in Norwegian and it's difficult as they tell the time very differently to the English way! Also at my class yesterday I had to stand in front of everyone and make a conversation and I totally choked! I could not remember anything and a lovely Croatian girl had to take over from me. I wanted to cry! I have a ton of homework to do this weekend but first we need to go outside and have some fun in all this snow!
The dummy tree picture is from my local library where kids go to hang up their dummies with a little note once they have grown out of them!


  1. My goodness that snow just keeps coming over there! I can only imagine how hard it is learning Norwegian! I learnt Japanese for a while and that was extremely tricky but some it has stuck with me! I went to a place in Sweden called Skansen zoo and in one of the enclosures which had no animals, there were just loads of dummies, everywhere!

  2. Hi! Just came across your lovely blog. Can definitely sympathize re: learning the language - but it'll come with time, absolutely. Gorgeous photos as well - thanks for sharing :-)

  3. Hello from Finland! I'm a Finn married to an American, so cross-cultural life here also.

    I found you thru Kay loves vintage. Nice to read your stories from Norwayl.

  4. You can do it! i admire anyone learning another language.
    and that photo of the 'dummies' is awesome. i didn't know what it was, i just thought it looked pretty interesting. then i had to laugh when i read what they were - cute idea for the kids.

  5. Hello, from Turkey.Very very good blog.

  6. Oh you will learn soon enough - and afterwards you can understand swedish and danish - so actually you will have three new languages - only studying for one :-)
    Hey thats an upside, right?
