I can now speak norwegian. It's official! I'm not being show-offy but I have decided (Yes, me) that I'm not doing too badly! Yesterday I took two friends to the cabin for a girls day. We swam in the fjord, we bbq'd,drank coffee and gossiped a little.Nothing special there I hear you say but we actually spent 8 (yes, 8) hours speaking non-stop norwegian. We had no choice but to speak norwegian as Antonella (from Croatia) speaks no english at all so it forces Vindhya and I to speak norwegian (we normally speak english to one another cause if we are alone it feels so wrong to speak norsk!) It felt really good to speak so much and be understood (mostly) and I found it hard to switch the norsk off when I arrived home (but soon had to as Henrik was telling me all about how he had accidently blown up his remote control speedboat in the living room on my Ercol coffee table!)

Happy weekend folks!
