Yesterday was Norway's national day (and a day off!)
I'd already waved the flag,hip hip hurrah-ed, eaten hot dogs, ice cream and paraded round the local area on Wednesday at work so I really didn't feel the need to do it again yesterday, so we jumped in the car and drove the 80 minutes it takes to get to the Swedish border instead. We relaxed on lovely deserted beaches and took tiny bridges from island to island and it was a perfect little getaway.
I'm free from work today and shall cut my hair in Norway for the first time -I've been having haircuts in England but my barnet is in such a state right now that I'm going to have to bite the bullet(and empty my bank account!) and visit a norwegian hairdresser!
