stop all the clocks

I met the love of my life when i was 19.

I wasn’t even looking, but there he was. I was at a weird stage in my life, kinda in the middle, between the teens and my twenties. I had just moved. I was lonely. I was stuck in the middle of everything.

He was described as a brat, behavior problems, that just made me want him more. We always want the bad guys, don’t we?
It wasn’t love at first sight at all, actually, he refused to sit next to me on our first car ride together, and I thought he was a bit ugly to look at. But we had patience. I had more patience with him than I’ve had with anyone, and the brat with behavior problems turned in to a spoiled cuddly bear. A ‘well just because I am 40 kilo, doesnt mean I wont sit on your lap’ cuddly bear.

And we did it all, didn’t we? It was you and me. We moved a cross the country together, left family and friends behind. We fell so low, but then we got up again, together. I stumbled, I fell, I got up again, and you were there, always.

I met the love of my life when I was 19, and on Friday, exactly one week before my 30th birthday, on the floor in the vets office, his head in my lap, his paw in my hand, we said goodbye.
It’s like an era has ended, but I have no idea how to start a new era without him.

Sleep tight, Emil. You are terribly missed <3




goodbye easter


vacation pics!


just wanted to share some picture glimps from my vacation, so here goes:

(you can click on the images to make them larger. its magic!)


this is my mothers boyfriends dog. Her name is Sanna, and she is the breed vorsteh. Me being a knitter I of course named her sanna the worsted dog.












this is cava. If you are on vacation you should drink cava in the middle of the day, just because you are on vacation












this is my new polkadot dress that I bought on vacation. You should buy yourself a new dress when you are on vacation!












this is me and my grandmothers feets. My 91 year old grandma also likes polkadots, as she is the one wearing polkadot socks










this is my mother’s moose. You mother dont own a moose? well then my mother is cooler than yours. (not really, my mothers moose creeps me out!)





















this is my addiction (I’m on haribo rehab at the moment, it’s so hard! I really miss the cola flavoured ones :-/ )










this is pretty nature


















This is my mothers dog Nemi. She is a bruise machine who likes to step on my legs










This is the worlds longest car tunnel. (24,5 km, 15.2 miles) It’s not blue all the way, but it’s blue here and there so the driver won’t fall asleep and kids won’t be bored to death.












This, well this is a very stupid person! dont try this at home. (I kept hoping for a tree.. no I didn’t, well maybe I did )

Today I want you to read Allis.

I know her, but I’ve never met her.

She makes origami, really pretty origami. She even made me a origami pig necklace, cause that’s how nice Allis is. If you ask her to fold a paper pig, she will do it.

Her blog is Norwegian, but you dont have to know our language, cause she has pretty pictures.

gardening inside

Let’s talk about gardening!

I used to live in the big city, in the big city I didn’t do much gardening, exept for that one year when my dad and I tried to grow tomatos on our porch on the fifth floor and the tomatos took over our porch and we eventually killed the plants on purpose, cause it was either the tomatos or us.

But then I moved here, and I got this huge garden, and I had to learn how to grow stuff. Our garden is rather challenging, as most of it is hillside /askew, and I also live in the middle of this viking country, wich means it’s not exactly sahara temperatures here, and there can be a lot of rain.

It’s been a lot of learning, a lot of reading (my favourite book is a huge book I have called The Herb bible, i loves it!) and our garden is a neverending project. My project for this year is to have a little salad garden in our back yard, with spinach and rapid salad and such. Last year i tried growing cucumbers, I started a little late, cause they grew, but never got ripe, so I’m trying again this year. Other new things this year: chilli, spinach, and this fall we planted a lot of new tulips. I have a herb garden wich I love, with peppermint, lemon balm, thyme,lavendel and oregano. Might add some basil this yearh, but last year it died on me. We also have two apple trees, raspberry and a cherry trea.

It’s still snow here, but you have to start early, so last week I did some gardening inside

Trying a new type of cherry tomatos this year, it has black stripes, oooh, exciting! I really hope the broccoli will grow this year, been trying and trying.

please grow up to be yummyness!

white outside, hopefully soon green inside

and I have to show you my pride and joy and baby. I actually have two, but the other one has not woken up from its winter sleep yet. Last year I tried to grow bell peppers, the long ones, not the normal round ones, and they grew! We had bell peppers all summer. During the fall it looked like it died, then it suddenly woke up and gave us more peppers, then it went to sleep again, and now it’s awake again. Today I saw that the flower was in bloom, so I have one bell pepper on the way.

I’m so proud of this!

so while I wait for spring to arrive, I water my precious seeds hoping the snow melts and we can start preparing our garden soon.
