Wet And Grey Days

7 Sep 2017 – Calm Before The Storm

Mon: Happy Bday M and good luck to her last year in her 30s! This glass-painting from her godfather is absolutely and beautifully delicate. The question is – where to hang it? M is home with a cough and B with a flu, not a good start for the week and not a good day to have to get things done for a class-party! C’est la vie and things have to be done as life goes on.

Tue: Happy 6Bday to #6, youngest grandchild Olai. How can 6yrs have gone by so quickly?? And how true with life in this proverb – Time & Tide wait for none. 

Now the MagniFicent 6 are all in school with #1 driving (pix credits to L) and #6 in 1stGrade.

The day started with gifts and a doughnut before school. Tkx to Clem, Sue & Aileen for all the Pokémon stuff and nightlights from me brought over from SIN. Bday or no bday, it is still a school-day today and off to school he must.

Tkx to Kris&Mette for taking time to meet. Always fun to catch up with a cuppa@Bicks.

Mette tells me that they want to close down Feiringklinikken – the hospital where I had my heart ablation, hope not as it is a good hospital.

Have signed the petition, hope and pray that it will remain open.

Got all the stuff and set-up into the school before 1700hrs and looks like 20kids from Class1A had a blast. Thank you to all for your well wishes. After organizing, setting up and cleaning his class-party at the school, both parents, including myself are completely wiped out. But all worth it to hear him say – this is the best Bday ever.

Not being used to such a big group of kids, was overwhelmed with them+gifts and a minor incident. Had to take a short stroll around the hood at Damplassen. How did I ever manage to raise 2kids??

Lovely evening and no doubt that Fall is in the air with some of the birches turning yellow. It is a blessing to be able to feel at ease and secure in all these places I have lived and still enjoying them.

Wed: grey wet day, and the forecast will be such for the rest of the week – good days to mend O jeans (2down, 1more to go) and cook. The basil-plants by the kitchen window are perfect for today’s spaghetti-sauce dinner.

Thu: have been on a go since my arrival. Need to calm down for a few days before shopping and packing back for SIN. Be safe, especially to those who are in the areas where Hurricane Irma is heading – thoughts are with all my friends in FL. Pix credits CNN: parts of the Caribbean island of St. Martin are left flooded after Irma hit.
