Tue: stayed home with Olai who has a runny nose. Dinner at Tåsen with Ingrid&HansK. Tåsen is a neighborhood of Oslo, about four 4km/2.5mi north of the city centre. The name origins from the norse name Tásvin.

Wed: heaven is certainly a place on earth. Some quiet playtime and then a yummy cookie with hot chocolate at Starbucks with Olai before sending him off to daycare. He is such good company and I am enjoying every second of it.
