it’s been a decade since i was last here – muchos agua under the bridge thats for sure!
It is fair to say that the scandies – they have it right. Ok, things are a little more expensive here than in mainland europe but in general, they have got it right. On the side of the fjords and lakes you see Lido’s. these are just about extinct from the UK now i reckon. It doesn’t stop there! at the Lido’s they also have diving boards on the first floor so that you can dive into the water.
Imagine that ?? the HSE in england would be shitting themselves if they saw this stuff. Not because they are dangerous places, but simply because they are there! the nanny state simply doesn’t exist here, if you want to do it, you can. If you are stupid enough to get hurt doing it – then thats your own stupid fault.
Everybody – please say hello to Monica. she is a little bit mental, but she is a norgy after all. Young – 21 years old, a little cute thing who is an ex girlfriend of the Viscount. I am not sure why the Viscount would leave Norway and leave her behind – but he did – the dumb ass !! In my honest opinion – she is a keeper and The Viscount needs to correct his error immediately and without delay.
On a lighter note – more infact , a note on my previous matchmaking skills – on sunday, i am meeting with Carl and Benedikte and no doubt the family too. Longer term readers of this blog thingy will remember these people from many years ago – i know for sure that a certain Ms. Cannon from Canada will undoubtably remember – she remembers everything. Carl and Benedikte married some years ago now, i am guessing around 2000 but my memory escapes me. I am wondering how many children i will be introduced to on sunday. Probably many.
It would be easy to find a stunner here and never leave – so i will be guarding myself closely and making sure that we do infact leave and head south again in search of warmer climates and limitless sunshine. We still hope to ‘yard’ in Pendennis in September – and after that – who knows……….wherever the boss decides he wants to be.
well – i really should be thinking about going to bed now – it is 04.30am here in Oslo. it never really got dark, and it never really got offensive.
i like it here.
Authors fotnote – i would just like to add that my new touch screen phone is completely fucking shite – please, do not waste your money on this crap. I cannot forward text messages on, save a number contained in a text message, nor can i edit or delete existing contacts. things have no reason to be this hard to work out.
Have a moan - the beers are on me !!
