Time to read the sunday papers, what bliss!
"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things" Robert Brault
There are a few things that we haven't had time to enjoy since having our son, things like lie ins in the mornings, time to read the papers over breakfast or while drinking tea in a cafe, nights out, time together to do what we'd like at our own pace, time together to talk without interuption. Small things that when they come together in one weekend are really quite huge. Infact it was a really big thing for us to be able to get away together for a whole weekend. It is a first since Theodore was born, partly because we haven't wanted to leave him for so long, partly because it has been so hard to get baby sitting in general and definately for the weekend and in part because Andreas' work has been so crazy that it just hasn't been possible for him to get away. Thankfully everything came together this weekend and we had a blissful weekend away without computers or phones and just saw each other.
Tønsberg's waterfront at night
We went to a small town by the sea called Tønsberg just an hour and a half outside Oslo. It's is reportedly the oldest town in Norway and here they are building a full replica of one of the original viking boats using traditional methods, ready to sail to the UK for the Olympics in 2012. It's a small but pretty town that i imagine comes fully to life in the summer when all the boats pour into the main waterfront to moor up and enjoy the bars and restaurants there, but it is was absolutely perfect for a two day break away from everything.
I love doors if you hadn't noticed!
