So apparently Summer is over for now. I was heartbroken when I was told it was going to rain so I soaked up as much sun as I could during my lunch break on deck. That’s also when I found a cure against wrinkles… Drum role: Get the app Snapseed and use the filter called ‘Smooth’ and voilà..:
Wrinkles are gone 😉
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.” ; )
YES OR NO?
Can I live without it?
Is it more than 10£?
Can I wear it in the wintertime?
Is it me?
Is it worth it?
Am I worth it?
Yeah, I’m worth it.
Is there enough space for it on the boat? (I frequently forget to ask myself that last question in the heat of the moment but hey, nobody’s perfect!)
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THAT GANNI SKIRT
Dear Law Of Attraction,
I’ve visualised wearing this skirt all summer. I’ve walked the streets as if I already own it. There’s space for it in my closet and I’m sending it one positive thought after another, because it would look really good with my blue bathing suit. (Please, see attached photo.)
Please, dear Law Of Attraction, my patience is about to run out. What more do I have to do? (Except paying for it of course, which is totally out of the question since we’re trying to save up for solar panels.)
Waiting in anticipation for your response dear Law Of Attraction.
ADD A HINT OF PINK ON A GREY DAY…
I guess the best description of today’s outfit is: “You only have the fun you make yourself!”
Vi har skrevet mange manus, Mac’en min og jeg, og flere skal det bli. Når kjærestens barn snorksover om morgenen, så lister jeg meg stille ut på dekk, med kaffen min, og tar i et tak. Sommermorgenene skal nytes! Ser dere forresten toget som kjører forbi på broen?
We’ve written a lot of scripts, my Mac and I, and more will come… When my boyfriend’s kids are snoring in the morning, I tip toe out on deck, with a cup of fresh coffee, and start writing. Trying to get the most out of the summer mornings. BTW, do you see the train passing on the bridge?
SUNNY DAYS ON THE GRAND UNION CANAL
Life is full of surprises…. I used to have a six-pack, now I have a family on a boat in London ; )
ON EVERY BEAT
Jeg har ventet på dette. En dag i solen. Hatten, bikinien, solbrillene… en kald øl og godt selskap. En sånn dag som blir til gode minner.
I’ve been waiting for this. A day in the sun. The hat, the bikini, the sun glasses… a cold beer and great company. One of those days that turn into great memories.

Glem diskusjonen om man skal være husmor eller karriere kvinne. I dag gikk det opp for meg at de fleste er begge deler, og vet dere hva? Jeg skal aldri kalle meg en dårlig husmor igjen.
Forget the discussion about being a housewife or a career woman. Today I realised that most of us are both, and you know what? I will never ever call myself a bad housewife again.
