“FOR THE WISE MAN EVERY DAY IS A FESTIVAL!”

Vi så Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds spille på All Points East festivalen i helgen og bildene sier vel alt om hvor gøy jeg synes det var. Høydepunktet var helt klart når Kylie Minogue kom på scenen og sang Where The Wild Roses Grow. Festivaler er rett og slett noe av det beste! En kald øl i solen, på gressplenen. Som Gary Clark sier: “There’s nothing like a music festival. People are ready to have a good time. I don’t think anyone comes to a festival going, ‘I’m gonna be a complete bummer today.'”

We saw Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds play at the All Points East festival this weekend and I guess the photos says it all; it was fun! The highlight was definitely when Kylie Minogue came on stage and sang Where The Wild Roses Grow. Can’t get enough of festivals! A cold beer in the sun, on the grass. As Gary Clark says: “There’s nothing like a music festival. People are ready to have a good time. I don’t think anyone comes to a festival going, ‘I’m gonna be a complete bummer today.'”

Don’t step on the wet paint…

Tenkte jeg skulle vise dere et ekte stykke båtliv. Vi pusser opp det siste rommet, og selv om vi har malt gulvet, så må motoren fremdeles slukkes og tennes. Det store spørsmålet er jo bare hvordan man kommer fra den ene enden av rommet til den andre uten å tråkke på det nymalte sorte gulvet? Hopp fra bjelke til bjelke og lat som du er med i Dirty Dancing eller Sex and The City.

I want to show you a piece of what life is like on the boat at the moment. We’re fixing up the last room and it doesn’t matter if we’ve painted the floor; we still have to turn the engine on and off. So how does one get from one end of the room to the other without stepping on the black, wet paint? Just jump from beam to beam and pretend you’re in Dirty Dancing or Sex and The City.

A classic silk headscarf

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!

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 ; – )

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.

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!
