Enya and Ireland



dette er altså vakre Irland... Can you believe I live in such a beautiful country??
The cutest little hobbit house I've seen, it's right outside Derrinturn...
My new, beautiful, deilige, varme, blue socks.


First pictures from Ireland!!!
No, I haven’t fixed my camera, but guess what, I have a cell phone!
Today have been a lovely day. I was finished working at about half two (2.30) and I have since been on the phone and reading lots of lots of stuff on the ylcf-website. It’s a cold day today, rainy and windy. I can’t remember the last time I had this many thick clothes on, tucked up in bed, drinking hot tea and still were freezing. Well, must have been last winter.. No really, I can’t remember.
.
The kids (and the parents) came home from Germany today. They brought me socks. Blue, fluffy ones. They’re absolutely lovely, and since my feet have been freezing all day I’m very very pleased with the gift.
.
This evening I’ve been talking to Dylan, which now recognizes me when I’m smiling to him (or maybe he just recognizes funny looking face in the same height as his, what do I know..).
Later I watched Bianca falling asleep on her mother’s knee, thinking how on earth can anyone sleep with all this noise? Then I remembered from when I was a child (and still to be honest) and couldn’t think of a better place to fall asleep then snuggeled up against a dear someone, listening to their voices and laughter and all the sounds of home.
.
I had the most lovely meal I’ve had in many many weeks: Ryvita with cheese and orange pepper slices (paprika) and hot Irish tea with milk.
.
L.O.V.E.L.Y.
.
I’m content and oh-so-happy here.
I’m really thriving and if you look at the facts, there’s no reason I should be so:
.
no friends,
no activities,
no people my age,
noone to go for walks with,
a seemingly everlasting cold,
non-familiar food,
no family,
nothing happening,
lots of tasks I don’t feel at all qualified to.
.
Well, to be honest, a completely different world than the one I used to live in. But I am content, and that should prove once and for all (at least for me) that contentment comes from God, and NOT circumstances.
Right now, I’m very very happy for that.
.
I’m listening to Enya today, and it makes me feel well, so I switched blog-music.
Gladiator is my favourite, if you wondered.
.
Good night all my friends,
(Marita, eg håpar du gadd å lesa dette sjølv om det var på engelsk =)
Peace to you,åslaug
