Ahhhhhh, May. My birthday month and that lovely month in Norway with so many holidays that you are hardly at work. Bliss. It's also the month that summer decided to make an (better late than never) appearance here.
We took off to Brussels for 4 days for my 40th which was fantastic. We dined on mussels, pomme frite dipped in mayonaise and chugged waaaaaaay too much delicious Kriek beer. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to my thirties :)
We opened up the cottage, gave it a good old clean and enjoyed a 4 day weekend where temps reached 27c. There was much lounging,napping,reading,relaxing,planting,an attempted swim(still too cold) and bbq's.
I love Norway during the summer when winter seems ages away and the days are long and light (and I can forget that we had snow on the ground 5 weeks ago!) Bring it on, summer :)
