I really love living in the countryside, being away from city life. The silence, the sound of birds and frogs (mating season) at night. The free range chickens, the endless jobs in the garden. The family meals. Even the washing up is okay, especially if we end up dancing while doing so. I do love it, but I also love running in a green city park. Grabbing a latte on the go before meeting up with a friend. Looking for bargains in too many second-hand shops. Having more opportunities when going out for a meal or a drink. I do love that too.
I´m planning to go home to Norway in September, just for a couple of weeks, then off to Norwich and then Suffolk. I think that will be really good for me. Meanwhile, the summer at Lalande is going to be so lovely. Lots of work, but lots of fun. Meeting new people, reading books (found some good ones in the attic), more workouts, late nights and lots of blue cheese with honey.
