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.

BUT I STILL HAVE THAT VELOUR SUIT

Det var den morgenen da det hadde regnet ti døgn i strekk og vi var gått tom for kaffe, men som kjæresten min sa: “Babe, you’ve been through worse.” Sant det! ;  – )

That was the morning when it had rained for ten days and we were out of coffee, but as my boyfriend said: “Babe, you’ve been through worse.” True! ; – )

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.

GULT ER KULT!

Hello yellow, we meet again! Jeg har ventet tålmodig med å ta på den nye, gule kåpen, for det har regnet og regnet i London. Ryggen slo seg vrang, vi gikk tom for vann og hadde et lite strømproblem på båten, men nå er vi up and running igjen, og i går gikk vi tur på Portobello Road. Jeg flottet meg med en latté fra Snaps + Rye og vi kjøpte noen fine, gule skåler til 2,5 £. De matchet kåpen. Gjett hva min nye favorittfarge er? Forrige gang jeg hadde et “love- relationship” med gult var vel på 90-tallet da mamma farget alle håndklærne gule og vi kjøpte gult sengetøy og gule kopper. Det var glade tider det. Jeg sier bare yellow, here we go again!

Hello yellow, we meet again! I’ve waited patiently with wearing my new, yellow coat, because it’s been raining and raining in London. I threw my back out, we ran out of water and had some trouble with the electricity on the boat, but now we’re up and running again, and yesterday we went for a walk on Portobello Road. I spoiled myself with a latté from Snaps + Rye, and we bought some pretty, yellow bowls for 2.5£. They match my coat. Guess what my new, favourite colour is? Last time I had a “love-relationship” with yellow was in the 90’s I think. When my mum coloured all the towels yellow and we bought yellow linens and yellow cups. Good times! Yellow, here we go again!

PRACTICAL DOESN’T HAVE TO BE BORING

Et liv med tvillinggutter ombord betyr; stå opp, kle på deg og heng på. Jeg fant disse (fake) skinnbuksene på H&M til – hold deg fast – 7£ (før jul) og genseren var i mammas klesskap på Gran Canaria (nå er den i mitt. ) Så da er det bare å løpe rundt etter to gutter som driter i hva man har på seg, men som lurer på hvor man kan kjøpe is.

Life with twin boys on board means; get up, get dressed and hang on. I found these [fake] leather trousers in H&M for – hang on – 7£ (before Christmas) and the sweater was in mum’s closet on Gran Canaria (now it’s in mine.) Totally ready for running around after two boys who couldn’t care less about what I’m wearing, but who want to know where to buy ice cream.

#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 ; – )

OPENED A DOOR TODAY…

Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed. So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road.
