Had my first bath in the sea. It was FREEZING, but I was under up to my neck. I didn't swim for long, as it was so cold it hurt, but it is done! Go me! Hopefully water temps will start rising. I'm crossing all digits the water in the lake up in the mountains is a little bit warmer. *brrr*
I'm waiting for my 3 auntie-kids who are with their uncle and his fiancée at the zoo. I've bought a new board game, some new playdoh++ we should be able to enjoy ourselves. I suspect they'll be over the top tired and hyped up on too much sugar when he's dropping them off. Weather forecast says sun and temps above +20 C. That means we'll be spending hours at the lake tomorrow. Whee! I'll be on my own with them most of the time, seeing both Runar and Simen is working, but Runar has promised he'll stay the nights up there with us, at least. It's kinda funny. He invites them to come on vacation with us, but expects me to do all the work...oh, well, they're great kids and I love them to bits. We'll have fun. Runar's brother and wife will come pick them up on Wednesday.
Too bad the summer heat came so late, because that means there are no ripe wild blueberries, or raspberries up there yet. We can still go searching. Who knows, we might get lucky and find a few bushes in some hidden sunny spot.
I'm not sure whether Georg and I will just spend all the week up there. I guess it depends on whether Runar gets that waterpump taken care of, or not. That car is now sitting at his work, while he's using one of the company cars. I don't know for how long he'll be allowed to use it.
Runar is supposed to start his vacation next week, but he now says that he doubts he'll be able to actually take much time off, as there are still work that needs finished. He'll say he has 3 weeks off to some people, then he'll turn around and say he has no vacation to others. He refuses to give me any straight answers, so I guess time will show.
