Summer Christmas

For the  first time, we are celebrating Christmas Day in our own house and the family will come to visit us.
Previous years, we have either travelled and visiting the family for a few weeks so there have been very little decorating earlier (apart from last year when I started decorating in the small).

I have tried to mix New Zealand summer decorations with Norwegian traditional decorations.
As I always say, I never really get used to the summer Christmas. On the other hand it is quite easy to be able to sit outside having a meal from the BBQ with roasted veggies and salads.

Happy Christmas!

Isn't it cute?

Our water cat

It has been a while since I last wrote about our cat, Bella.
She is a funny little cat with special interests I have never seen in a cat before - like water....
She loves the kitchen sink and bath tub, preferably with the water running.

The other day I came home to a running tap in the kitchen. Guess who had been out on her furry paws turning on the water....hm...

Sissel Kyrkjebø & Jose Carreras

Some nights the hours are passing by searching for music on youtube.
This time I found a lovely concert with our own Sissel..

Lovely music, especially as it is getting closer to Christmas.
