We haven't got our new hard disk for the laptop yet, so I'm trying to blog from our old and very slow stationary computer... Just a quick post to wish you all a Happy Easter! In Norway easter is all about skiing in the mountains. Getting away from the city, enjoying the snow and the weather and not to mention getting a tan to show off when back at work are popular things to do during the vacation ;) I just get freckles... Here in Norway, Easter break is longer than in many other European countries. The Easter holidays start Wednesday afternoon before Maundy Thursday, and end on Tuesday morning after Easter Monday. This makes for a nice long Easter weekend!
We've had some great weather this week until today... It's raining, and I really hope it will stop. Because I'm so looking forward to some days at our lean-to, skiing and sledding.
A quite peculiar national trait in Norway is solving crimes during Easter. Publishers churn out series of books known as "Easter-Thrillers" or Påskekrimmen. Even the milk cartons change to have murder stories on their sides! And from Saturday to Monday I'm going to watch Hercule Poirot each night :)
Since I haven't spent time on the net, I really have had time to knit :) I have knitted up a pair of jaywalkers, these socks are soon done and I hope to have these mittens off the needles within the wekend.
