This bag is from the pound shop and will help me use less plastic bags. We’re going to carry a lot of groceries together; this bag that isn’t Chanel and I.

HOW GIRLS CAN HELP BUILD THE EMPIRE

Yesterday I heard about this 18-year old girl who’s training to become a captain on the Thames. Someday she wants to be the captain of an ocean liner. How cool is that! It made me think of this book called HOW GIRLS CAN HELP BUILD THE EMPIRE. It’s from 1912 and asks questions like, “Perhaps you don’t see how a mere girl can be of use to the Great British Empire?” Great question, right? But we can all rest assured because, “Girls can even be brave enough to shoot tigers, if they can keep cool.”  ; )

A NICE LITTLE BREAK

Today’s morning coffee in Little Venice… Our “dog” King, have faithfully guarded the door for about five years now. And I decided it was about time to wear that orange dress because you only live once…

THESE ARE THE DAYS…

There I am, in the middle of the meadow pulling our boat in, and one day when I’m old and grey, I’m going to look back on this and think, «I had the time of my life.»

SUMMER O’HOY

Ser du sølvskoene jeg har på meg? Kjæresten lurte på hvorfor jeg gikk sånn og snublet litt. – Det er fordi skoene er ett nummer for store, svarte jeg. Det var bare ett par igjen, og de kostet bare 5€ på Gran Canaria, så da er det verd å snuble litt. – Ja, jeg ser den, svarte kjæresten. – Du får løfte bena da, forslo han, så gikk vi videre og kikket på båter og hilste på et annet pensjonert par.

See the silver shoes I’m wearing? My boyfriend wondered why I kept stumbling. – It’s because the shoes are a size too big, I explained. They were only 5€ on Gran Canaria, and there was only one pair left, so it’s worth a little stumbling. – I see, he said and suggested, – Maybe lift your legs when strolling? Then we walked on, admired the boats and said hello to another retired couple.  

 

When the sun shines in London everyone smiles…

NO FILTER

Har du sett de nye skoa og ryggsekken jeg har med hjem fra Gran Canaria? Praktisk og forberedt er ord som står høyt på listen for tiden når det gjelder påkledning. Men ellers dreier det seg om solen; for er det noe som skal prioriteres over alt denne våren, så er det en gåtur når solen endelig skinner, og når man kan gå en tur langs Themsen, da er det bare en ting som gjelder: Gå fort, gå langt!

Have you seen the new shoes and the backpack I brought home with me from Gran Canaria? Practical and prepared are words that are on top of the list these days, but other than that it’s all about the sun; because if there’s one thing that is going to have top priority this spring, it’s a walk when the sun’s finally shining, and when you can walk along the Thames, there’s only one thing that counts: Walk fast, walk far!
