A year

A year has gone since something terrible happened in my country..77 people were murdered, and it should not have happended.

This year has been a bit of everything, but most of all I feel for the parents, siblings and friends of the many people that died.

You will always be remembered.

We had a day out in Glasgow today, went to lots of shops, got most of the school uniform sorted for Princess and I also bought some writing paper, so now I can write for another few months and still have nice paper. Yes, satisfied with the day. Not so satisfied by the fact I have spent a huge amount of money, atleast it feels that way.

But I will be back with my letters, and I will post them tomorrow I believe. I love writing and receiving letters! It is fantastic to be able to meet someone in a letter, and learn about their lives.

Different types of feelings

Through one day I can go through an enourmos ampount of feelings, deep feelings of love for people I have never actually met such as all my penpals, sadness over what some people are going through, such as Mirka the mum of 11 kids..she is just such an unbelieable inspiring woman and when sad things happens to good people, I get sad.

And today I discovered Anais Nin...she has a hugs amount of fabulous quotes, and I am going to read a bit about her. I am happy I found her.

Then, looking at how my diet is going, I get angry with myself for not having more will power so I can resist the biscuits my Princess get s me to make, resist that bagel in the evening, when I am just slightly hungry...and annoyed with myself..and I aldo get determined that I AM GOING to do this.

I was hoping to be at goal around Christmas time, so I better behave.

One thing that makes me happy :I have only 6 letters to reply to, which means I have nearly cought up! Yay
And another thing that makes me happy: I am knitting again and I am almost finished with a new top..just another few days I think, and I will be able tp use it!!  Hurray!

I will finish with Anais Nin..

I have been writing alot of letter, now I really need to post them. I will only take half of them tomorrow, and then the rest on Saturday.

I am so in love with writing letters, it's amazing, but I have to relax slightly about it and make sure I enjoy the writing...I get overexcited and it ends up with me getting very little sleep because I am only thinking about writing..or knitting.

Now, I am taking it easy and enjoying it. I have recently started writing to another few ladies...Almante, Vigdis and Jannicke. Three very different women, and I am super excited.

Great to have so many lovely friends worldwide.

Have a lovely day , my friends!

Jogging or running

Doesn't really matter what you call it, but I ran or jogged 5.2 kilometers today, it took me 50 minutes, but I am amazed that I actually did it in one go. So that just means I CAN do it.

And if I can do it, then anybody can. The point now it do be able to do it a second time, but I will staop at 5k next timed and try to get my time under 47 minutes...hopefully 45 minutes, That would be good. I don't know what it will do to my weight, butI have to start tracking again.

So I better log on to Weight Watchers again, and get started.
C ya later

Yes, it was nice to come home but not so great looking at the weighing scales the next morning. Every time I go to Norway I ALWAYS put on alot of weight..and this time too...but something weird has happened...!

On Saturday (*or was is Sunday) morning, I weighed 80.8 kilos, and over these next few days I have lost alot of that weight...nearly 2 kilos in 3 or 4 days...!

This morning I weighed 78.9 kilos, and my theory is my fathers houxe we get alot of stodgy food..bread for breakfast, hotdogs or burgers when we bbq, and we did that two out of three days before we came home...!

So I think maybe all the weight was just lying around in my gut, waiting to pass (sorry if this was a bit too much info) and now I have only one kilo to lose and I am back to the smallest I have been in a very long time.

I am very happy about this, because this was always my problem, to lose the weight I put on when being in Norway, but this time it seems I have cracked it. Yaay!
