Winter time in Asker
It’s winter holiday time. I bought hubby a ticket and sent him back to South Africa for a month.
He was miserable!
It can only be compared to that last big hill before you finally see the finishing line – in this case spring. Some people need a little nudge to make it up the hill.
I had to think about it for a while before I suggested it. What if he didn’t come back? After all – there’s a lot to be said for the African sun and the juicy red grapes of the Constantia wine route.
Ironically the opposite happened. He is homesick for Norway and missing us terribly. Well, that was until I took a picture of our driveway (which is in desperate need of a good snow plough session). I haven’t heard from him since.
Nothing like a snapshot of reality to bring a person down to earth….
The worst is actually over and it’s getting lighter by the day now. The skiing conditions are fantastic. I know this because there was an article about it in the local newspaper!
With the winter holidays coming up next week I’ll have plenty time to go and find out for myself.
In the meantime I share with you – beautiful “Semsvannet”:
