WHEN THINGS ARE PILING UP 

En ting som var så deilig da vi akkurat hadde kjøpt båten var at vi nesten ikke hadde noen ting i den. Det var stort sett bare hvite vegger, to stoler og en sofa og det er jo mange som drømmer om den type simple living. Jeg har selv alltid tenkt at det må være deilig å ha så lite, for da blir man sikkert helt klar i hodet. (Så feil kan man ta.) Det jeg ikke hadde tenkt over er hvor utrolig kjedelig det er å ikke ha noen ting, da er det jo ingenting å gjøre. Spesielt når man har begrenset tilgang på vann, ikke kan lade opp Mac’en og internett ikke finnes. De tre sistnevnte er fikset nå. Men det som skjedde var at vi begynte å fylle opp, som Espen Askeladden, og den ene tingen etter den andre har fått plass i båten. Nå er det snart ikke plass til oss selv lenger, så nu er det noe som skal ut. Spørsmålet er bare hva. Skoene blir det ikke. Tøyet blir det ikke. Hmmm…vanskelig.

One thing that was so great when we’d just bought the boat was that we almost didn’t have a thing in it. It was mostly just white walls, two chairs a sofa and there are many who dream about this kind of simple living. I’ve thought about it myself, that it must wonderful to have so little because your mind will probably be so clear. (Haha, I was wrong.) What I hadn’t thought about is how incredibly boring it is to not have anything – there’s nothing to do. Especially when you have limited access to water, can’t charge your Mac and internet doesn’t exist. We’ve fixed the latter now. But what happened was that we started filling up, like fairy tale figure Espen Askeladden, and one thing after another have come on board. Soon there’s no room for us anymore, so now some things will have to go but the question is what. Not the shoes. Not the clothes. Hmmm…difficult.
