Ups and downs

I felt a little down this morning and shared my frustration with Bjørn. So he joined me for a walk. Brought my camera, and had a good time.

Hedge. Snow. Sky.

When we came home, our neighbour-to-be was there with her dog, Buddy.

He came running through the snow as fast as his Corgi legs could carry him.

Quite a little charmer!

Fed the birds, photographed some of them. We have hordes.

After the walk we had lunch and did some things at home. Life was better by the time I went to bed....

A lot of resting

More than I appreciated.

Friday 8 March 2019

Home early

I let my evening pupil go a little early today, and could leave work at 6pm. It has been a long week, and it was good to come home and get some rest.

Just work.

Got a gift from a female pupil today since it is March 8th tomorrow.

Concert

Bjørn came to meet me after work, and we drove together to Kolbotn for the concert "You and me, dad". The children of two of the most famous singer-songwriters in Sweden had teamed up to sing their fathers songs, some of their own songs and some of the songs we all have known forever. And to tell anecdotes. Bjørn and I are old enough to have been fans of their fathers. Jack Vreeswijk og Cajsa-Stina Åkerström were wondeful, and it was well worth the tickets. I did not take any pictures, but the poster for the concert was this:

More work

Work in Askim, work in Kolbotn. Another long day. And a cold and snowy one at that.

Monday 4 March 2019

A long day to start a long week.

This week will mainly be about work. I normally have home office on Mondays, but today I was at my workplace for 11 hours. I was a little behind after having had the flu for so long, and we also had or monthly evening get-together for our online pupils.

Sunday 3 March 2019

A belated the 2nd dinner.

Bjørn away at the seminar, me being home, doing things. And coughing Lots of it. He came home in the evening and we had a good dinner to mak eup for spending the 2nd apart.

Winter still

This weekend Bjørn and I had booked an hotel room at the hotel where the autism seminar was. I had planned to follow the lectures that interested me, and then just enjoy hotel life. But the flu had not quite planned to let me of the hook, so I had a night of coughing, and I felt quite exhausted. Bjørn went alone, I stayed at home. I was quite the busy bee at home and got a lot of things done.

I tried to follow up on my walking resolution also. It snowed and was cold, and even though it was only a short walk in the evening, I coughed endlessly after I came back home. I am giving op and putting walking plans on hold until this winter ends.

Birthday and birds

I tried to make up for Bjørn having to be alone yesterday, by having the birthday celebration today. I got up early and drove down to Ørje to buy some breakfast treats, and then I made us a nice breakfast. I got an SMS that meant I did not have to go into work today, so I stayed at home. My original plan was to go into work quite early, and catch up on all the work I have fallen behind with while I have been ill. But the temptation of just staying at home was too big, so I will have to do that on Monday instead. I already have net pupils on Monday evening, so that means I will both day and evening work five days next week, but that seems to be a prize I am willing to pay.

So, today was about Bjørn. Already 5 minutes after midnight, I told him what his birthday present would be, and I know it is something he has been wanting for a while. Then the breakfast. Then we watched some of his favourite TV-shows together before he went off to Askim to reconnect with an old friend.

While he was gone, I did some housework, and went for a walk. Nice and sunny today.

I also photographed some of the birds at our bird feeding place. There are more birds at the feeding place here than any other place we have lived. And today I even saw the relatively rare Stillits. That was cool.

We have a big delegation of Eurasian Tree Sparrow (Pilfink in Norwegian).

And another big delegation of European Green Finch (Grønnfink)

And quite a few Eurasian Blue Tits (Blåmeis)

And the rare European Goldfinch that I have never seen in real life before (Stillits)

When Bjørn came back, I made us a dinner worthy of a birthday, and we spent the rest of the day in the sofa. We had an early night, since he is arranging a seminar with the autism organisation this weekend, and we need to get up early tomorrow.

Bjørn's birthday.

It was Bjørn's birthday today, but he had to spend it mostly alone. He was at his job, though. I worked double, and was dead tired by the time I got back home. But I did make us a cup of hot chocolate!

Doc and work

Went to see the doc today. She confirmed that I have tendinitis in both arms, which explains the pain. She also confirmed that I have a flu and not a cold, and gave me something for the cough.

Then to work. Only two lessons today, my evening pupil has a a car course. It was good to come home earlier for once. I need some recovery time.

Tuesday 26 February 2019

Work times two

Full work day for me today. All day and all evening. I am getting better, but am still not well. It took a lot of willpower to get through this day, and when I came home, I felt really horrible.

Monday 25 February 2019

Manic Monday

Bjørn was at work. I was buzzing about, getting all sorts of things done here at home.

Sunday 24 February 2019

A low key Sunday

The guests slept over, which made for a long, nice and chatty Sunday breakfast. And some hours later, there was a long, nice and chatty lunch. After lunch, everyone went back home, and the house was suddenly very quiet. I was still quite ill, so I collapsed on the sofa, and did some serious relaxing.
