life, week 47

Quick evening walk to the local bakery to get pastries to celebrate the decision on which job offer to go for. Plus listening to the new episode of #mariellogsara

A pre bedtime walk (in my pyjamas) to reach my goal of 10.000 daily steps. This is what is has come to, all because of the activity watch I got from Sølve for my birthday. And I love it. 

Walking home from kindergarten in the 4:30 pm November darkness.

5 minutes dinner for hangry mamma and kids

This little one woke me up at 0515 am + nine other things on this Wednesday list

4:30 pm November darkness, part two. Office desk view reflected. 

Thankful for grandmothers who pick up the kids in kindergarten/feed them/put them to bed, so the parents can work and study late. 

Wednesday night exam studies // selskapssjokolade, palatalisering og retrofleks flap

Netflix incentivised

5 minutes with a cup of lukewarm coffee. Just what I needed after getting a very whiny Sverre to kindergarten, plus his big sister of course. Who for the record was not whiny; she was just upset about the sauce we put on her pasta for dinner last night. #momlife

Beyond excited about the new 3191 Miles Apart book! Plus curious toddler photo bomb.

Currently into: Taking a stand, on books. As you do.

Upping the 6 am #hygge factor with candles. Survival strategy numero uno when your toddler wakes you up at 0530 on a pitch dark November Saturday.

Here we go again! Saturday at the University reading room - with the best company @marenlerang

Sunday morning post breakfast reading with Sverre and Little Red Riding Hood. "Den!" (this) he said and came to sit in my lap.


Norwegian dialect localisation // slowly getting the hang of reading phonetics

And so it begins.

Week 47: November 21-27



  1. Ah! I studied phonetics, linguistics and Scandinavian languages back in University. That pic brings back a lot of memories!

  2. Funny that you say "numero uno" while speaking English! I would say "number one" while speaking Italian!
    Also, I like your blog and I'm a journalist turned middle school teacher, too!
