Bringing home the bacon…

…on laundry day.

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.

WORK HARD, PLAY HARD…

…IN A COMFY AND COMFORTABLE OUTFIT. 

Vi har fått det travelt her i London. Er det ikke jobb så erre’ party ; ) Også skal jo båten flyttes hver andre uke, eller når vi går tom for vann. Men jeg koser meg som aldri før. Det er akkurat sånn det skal være. Dere vet hva de sier: Work hard, play hard…

It’s busy times here in London. Lots of work and there have even been a few drinks with friends. Let loose, with Footloose ; ) The boat still has to be moved every other week or when we run out of water. Good times. You know what they say: Work hard, play hard…

My favourite tiger quotes…

GO GET ‘EM TIGER!

I’m still not completely sure if this cardigan has a tiger or zebra pattern? What do you think? Anyway, here are some of my favourite tiger quotes: 

“Life is like a wild tiger. You can either lie down and let it lay its paw on your head, or sit on its back and ride it.”  – Ride The Wild Tiger

“There is nothing like the thrill of walking through the jungle looking for a tiger and knowing they could be watching you already.”  – Ashlan Gorse Costeau

“In waking a tiger, use a long stick.” – Mao Zedong

Summer days in Malene Birger…

THESE ARE THE DAYS…

Er ikke helt sikker på om jeg er en zebra eller tiger i denne jakken, men jeg vant den i hvert fall på eBay her om dagen. Lykken er en “ny” mohair jakke, et glass øl på en fridag med gode venner som får en til å le så man griner. Disse dagene hvor man kan gå i shorts fra tidlig morgen til sent på natt, det er ekte sommerdager det.

I’m not completely sure if I’m a zebra or a tiger in this jacket but I won it on eBay the other day. Happiness is a “new” mohair jacket, a glass of beer on a Friday together with good friends that make you laugh until you cry. These days, were you can wear shorts from early morning until late night – this is summer.

Happy Birthday Norway!

Gratulerer med dagen!

The French have The Bastille Day, Americans have 4th of July, the Irish have St.Patricks day and the Norwegians have their 17th of May. I’ve often been asked what’s up with the Norwegians and their flag? And the first things that come to my mind are A: Freedom and B: The party is where the flag is. Wish you all a happy 17th of May! PS: This is a day where you’re allowed to eat as many hot dogs and as much ice cream as your stomach can handle ; )

SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE

HURRY SLOWLY 

For tiden øver jeg meg i kunsten å skyndte seg langsomt. Det ville jo være fantastisk hvis man kunne dele seg i to, tenke med tre hoder, skrive med fire armer og galloppere gjennom gatene som en god arbeidshest, eller som han faunen i Narnia, men det kan jeg ikke. Det jeg kan gjøre er å gå, steg for steg og passe på at jeg ikke snubler på veien.

I’m totally practising the art of hurrying slowly. It would be great to split in half, to think with two heads, write with four arms and gallop through the streets like a good workhorse or like that faun in Narnia, but I can’t, but I can walk, step by step and make sure that I don’t stumble on the way.

THE SUNNY SIDE OF LIFE

For en fantastisk dag vi har hatt! Når man våkner av at solen streifer kinnet og man faktisk har lyst til å stå opp, da er det sommer! (Når man bor i båt hopper man over vår og høst. Det er enten varmt eller kaldt, sommer eller vinter. Resten er bare nyanser av grått ; ) Jeg fant det første og beste på hyllen, som viste seg å være det perfekte antrekket for varmt vær og bleke ben. Et midi-skjørt kan nemlig alltid trekkes litt opp når man vil sole bena, men også skjule dem litt hvis du føler for det. Bare et sånn lite tips, hvis du har lyst til å sole deg men føler at naboen har tatt litt mere solarium enn deg.

What a fantastic day we’ve had! When the sun hits your face and you actually want to wake up in the morning – then you know it’s summer! (When you live on a boat you kind of skip spring and autumn. It’s either hot or cold, summer or winter. The rest are only shades of grey ; ) I found the first and best on the shelf, which turned out to be the perfect outfit for pale legs. A midi-skirt can easily be pulled up when you want to give your legs a bit of sun, but also hide them if that’s what you feel like. Just a little tip if you want to soak up the sun but feel a little too pale compared to the neighbour who’ve already spent months in a solarium, preparing.

A classic silk headscarf

Fashion

scarf 1

BOAT GLAMOUR

Jeg vet ikke helt om det er Dronning Elizabeth eller Brigitte Bardot jeg har latt meg inspirere av i dag, men silkeskjerfet er bundet og jeg er klar for en ny dag med nye utfordringer. Best av alt er det jo at skjerfet dekker øra, så man ikke trenger å ha lue på når man går ut. Skulle jo gjort dette for lenge siden.

I’m not completely sure if it’s Queen Elizabeth or Brigitte Bardot who have inspired me today, but the silk scarf is tied and I’m ready for a new day with new challenges. Best of all is how the scarf covers the ear, so you don’t need a hat when you go outside. Should have done this years ago.
