A BASKET OF EGGS – EASTER DIY

Lifestyle

Processed with VSCO with f3 preset

 TO PUT ALL THE EGGS IN ONE BASKET, OR NOT TO PUT ALL THE EGGS IN ONE BASKET, THAT IS THE QUESTION…

Hvis du er som meg og ikke har fått påskepynten i hus enda så er kanskje dette en ide?  Vi har ikke så mye plass i båten og kjæresten var ikke sååå keen på å fylle båten med påskekyllinger, for jeg har jo allerede fylt den med sko og tøy, MEN en kurv med egg, det går alltids ann. God påske!

If you’re like me and haven’t sorted the Easter Decorations out yet, then this might be an idea? We don’t have that much space on the boat and my boyfriend wasn’t that keen on loading it with chickens, because I’ve kind of already filled it with shoes and clothes, BUT a basket of eggs always works! Happy Easter!

#BOATLIFE

Så var det tid til å flytte huset vårt igjen. Fra Øst- til Vest-London. Det tar noen timer og jeg er rimelig stiv og støl i dag, men sånn er det å være continuous cruisere. Noen nordmenn går på ski i påsken; vi flytter båt i London. Det er ikke så verst det heller. Today’s outfit: Ugg’s, Ray-ban’s and boilersuit ; – )

Then it was time to move our house again. From East – to West-London. It takes a day and  I’m pretty beaten, but that’s life as continuous cruisers. Some Norwegians go skiing in Easter; we’re moving our boat in London. That’s not too bad either. Today’s outfit: Ugg’s, Ray-ban’s and boiler suit ; – )

JUMPING FOR JOY IS GREAT EXERCISE

You cannot always wait for the perfect time, sometimes you must dare to jump.

Today’s outfit: The Survival Suit

A SMOOTH SEA NEVER MADE A SKILLED SAILOR

What do you think about todays outfit? Does my behind look big in this? ; ) If there’s one thing I can’t get enough of on the boat it’s boiler suits. Today’s jumpsuit is one of my favourites; it keeps me warm, dry and it’s got flotation – in case I fall in…

OVERLEVELSESDRESSEN

Hva synes du om dagens outfit? Ser rompa mi stor ut i den eller? : ) Hvis det er noe jeg ikke får nok av ombord så er det en god heldress. Dagens “jumpsuit” er en av favorittene mine; den holder meg varm, tørr også har den oppdrift – kjekt hvis jeg skulle falle i vannet…

Hello Paddington

WE MEET AGAIN

We’re back in Paddington. In the middle of the big city! If boatlife was like this every day, I would never complain, (I think.) Nice docks, security, a fifteen minute walk to Oxford Street. What more could you possibly want. This week will be enjoyed!

LENGE SIDEN

Vi er tilbake i Paddington. Midt i storbyen! Hvis båtlivet var som dette hele tiden, så ville jeg aldri klage, (tror jeg.) Fine brygger, sikkerhetsvakter, femten minutters gåtur til Oxford Street. Hva mer kan man ønske seg? Kan ikke ha det bedre. Denne uken skal nytes!

OLD SCHOOL HAND STITCHING 

Just want to show you these pictures that prove that I’m making the curtains by hand. Swedish roll up curtains are supposed to be the easiest model to make, but it’s taken me a hundred years to get half way. It’s pretty old school, but I have to admit that I find stitching to be incredibly meditative. If I had more time I would learn how to make a dress, but time is money, and who has the time to hand sew curtains these days? Absolutely no one! So sometimes I feel a bit guilty about doing something as ineffective as hand stitching, but then I remind myself that other people do yoga or go for a run, whilst I’m sitting here, sewing.

I GOD GAMMELDAGS STIL 

Her er bildene som beviser at gardinene blir sydd for hånd. Selv om jeg valgte å sy svenske rull opp gardiner, som er den letteste modellen man kan tenke seg, så tar dette hundre år. Det er rimelig old school, men jeg må innrømme at det er noe utrolig meditativt ved å sette sting for sting på rekke og rad. Hvis jeg hadde hatt tid ville jeg lært meg å sy kjoler og jakker og alt mulig. Men det var jo dette med tiden da; man skal bruke den fornuftig, for tid er penger og derfor får jeg faktisk ofte litt dårlig samvittighet når jeg setter meg ned for å gjøre noe så lite effektivt som å sy gardiner for hånd. Men så tenker jeg på at andre går til yoga eller tar seg en løpetur imens jeg sitter her og syr.

 THAT LONDON ROOFTOP 

You know those days when you thought nothing special would happen, you’ve certainly not planned to stand on a London rooftop in the sun, but all of a sudden you’re just there, in your favourite lavender dress, with your man. Well, that happened to me last weekend ; – )

Du vet de dagene når du ikke har planlagt noe spesielt? Du har i hvert fall ikke planlagt å stå på et hustak i Notting Hill i solen, men plutselig er du der bare, i favoritt- lavendelkjolen, med kjæresten. Og du står der og føler deg så heldig at du nesten kunne sprekke! Det finnes ikke noe bedre enn gode sommerdager!
