English version further down Vi har vært hjemme i tre måneder, hverdagen har eksistert i halvannen. Dagene er akkurat så travle som jeg var redd de ville bli. Ikke noe travlere enn før vi dro, men travle. Sånn travle som alles hverdager med bikkje og barn er, vil jeg tro. Selv om vi bor slik… Read More Starting all over again -it`s gonna be rough….

I imagine the little, insecure girl walking into the school area alone, with no best… Read More Are we doing the right thing?

I remember saying to may absolute favorite yoga teacher Julia sometime in September last year, that as soon as September had passed, I`d be able to join more of her… Read More Who are we fooling?
