February moments...

February - shortest month, yes, but....
A lot of weather..
Longing for spring....
But at least the mornings are brighter....
Here are the moments...
Not many photos this month.

 
Winter time in Bergen
 
It is early February and I wonder where the brighter mornings are untill I suddenly one morning realise that there is daylight outside the fozen windscreen.
 

 
Mid February sunrise at 8 o'clock in my island paradise.
 



And then there is work and studies...
 

 
And a waffle morning...

 

It is the end of February and winter still very much around. At least we have had a  proper winter this year amidst all the talk of climate change and global warming.

Homelife on a weekend...

The view from my corner this weekend.
 
Lately I have been feelig a bit under the weather healthwise. We have a lot to do at work and I am trying to be a student, but had not even started on my studies last week.



With last weekend approaching I decided to take a weekend alone in my city flat and just stay there, take it easy and try to catch up on my studies. So that is what I did. From Friday afternoon untill Monday morning alone in the flat. Sleeping as much as I wanted to, no housework, waffles for breakfast, comfy clothes. Just chill. I even found the time to start a new knitting. Sunday evening I was really happy because I had done something fruitful, I managed to catch up on my examreading and now feel able to write an assignment I have to finish in a couple of weeks.

I don't often do this. I feel that I have wasted my time if I just sit on the sofa in my comfy clothes all weekend. I wonder how it would have been if I hadn't had the studies to catch up on? I must try that at some point.

Grunge....

From the archvies: Winter 2013


February is the shortest month of the year, but I have always found it to be a heavy month to get through. It is an inbetween month. The long winter is coming to an end but not yet, we have to get through February.

This year I have found February particularly hard. I never really recovered from the illness I had last November. All through the winter I have been coughing and feeling a bit shabby, but not bad enough to stay home from work. Perhaps not a good idea, come to think of it. And it has been so tiring. About a week ago I got really sick - the flu, apparently. According to the experts I have just been unlucky and caught every bug that is around. Now I am slowly regaining my strength, so I hope to be back stronger and fitter than ever soon. Half of February is gone and spring is not to far away, now.

From Rome....

The school that I work in has a friendship school in Rome. Our students write letters to the students in this school and vice versa. They get to practice English and learn about a different European culture. The last weekend of January some of us teachers payed them a visit. It was such a joy. We where recieved with open arms and so much friendliness. They where really, really well prepared.
After the visit we spent the rest of the weekend as tourists in Rome. Beautiful city in a beautiful country.

I will let the random photos speak and not comment to much. Here they are:


 
Visiting Our friendship school in Rome - we just couldn't ask for a warmer welcome.



 They had a "wall of Words": Important words to remember in the schoolsituation (and life). These boards are made by the students in different languages.

 
 Happy ladies....
 
 
 
I like the fact that I needed my sunglasses.
 
 


 
The above photo of Colosseum was in my hotelroom. When I arrived I thought this would be as close as I would get to see it when in Rome. But I got to see it. At least a blurry look from the outside.

 

And then all the history....
 




 
.....the fun and modern...
 




 
 
 
 



And food of course, even if this is not the best thing I ate, but the only thing I photographed.
