driving home


We finally left home at around 1:30 pm and after 14 hours we arrived at my parents house tired, but happy. I was worried about the mountain pass, but it was no problem at all. And because of the winter holidays starting this weekend it was a lot of cars everywhere. I took a few (blurry) photos, but sadly all our driving time in the snow was after dark… So I just tell you: it was a winter wonderland :mrgreen:

I took some photos, though:

Now we’re enjoying time with our family and MT is outside having fun in the snow with his cousins.

I guess this week will be less updates, sorry, but my parent do not have any broadband and the dial up is sooooo slow!!

Take care ๐Ÿ˜€

Go or stay

DSCF8097 We’re supposed to drive back home to my my parents today. But it’s snowy and windy outside AND, more importantly, up in the mountain. I’m sitting here looking at the weather forecast and road reports trying to figure out what to do(!!) We have about 8 or 9 hours of driving (within this short stops are included), but if the weather is bad we’re looking at at least 11 or 12 hours – and that is a long time to be driving all by my self and a long time for MT to sit in his seat….. But then we would be there in the morning tomorrow and not late afternoon.

Right now it seems like the best thing is to wait a bit more to see if it clears a bit and then dive right into it and use the time necessary to get there….. OR NOT ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I need a cup of coffee, and after that I’ll pack the car and then we’ll see!

Update: It’s still a bit more snow and wind than I like and we might have to spend the night i Lรฆrdal before we cross the mountain. But we’re off!!! :mrgreen: Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!ย 

Ouch and snow…

Can you believe it?! We got snow again ๐Ÿ˜€ Thought the white winter was about finished by now, but I was wrong. A good thing to be about this matter if you ask MT ๐Ÿ˜‰ He screamed of joy this morning when he discovered it, soon we’re off to kindergarten and hopefully a day outside in the snow for his part.

bubble up close I only wish I could say it was the snow that caused my fall on Monday…..
I was in a hurry and on my way to the store, on the way to my car I was to drop some garbage in the garbage tin outside so I had to turn a bit to the right while going down the stairs. I’m not quite sure what caused it, maybe my shoes or a rock in the wrong place, but suddenly I found myself crashing to the ground!!! As I fell I heard a soft snapping sound (can such sounds be soft? well, it was…) from my right foot and was half expecting to find it broken when I tried to get up again. It was not, I kind of knew that but the humbling thought of managing to break my leg right outside my door kept me from thinking straight – adding to that I was going to the store mostly for my friend who’s jumping around on crouches after an operation a few weeks ago; she was watching MT while I was in a hurry falling…. But the leg was sore and swollen. And I felt like an idiot falling like that and hoped no one saw me (it was dark, thank you very much ;)). It’s not the first time I’ve done this, but it’s been good for a while now…

Anyhow I’m trying to slow down, put the leg up high whenever I can and to concentrate on not falling again!! Right now I’m loving the automatic gear in my car. :mrgreen:
