A Weekend in Oslo

Monday, 24 July 2017
loving the rain!

The day after the general election this year B and I hopped on a plane and flew to (rainy) Oslo for a long weekend, escaping from what we thought would be an inevitable Tory smug-storm.  It was a really fun weekend - Oslo is a cool city with lots to do - so I'd definitely recommend it for a city break.  One thing I would say though is that although flights and accommodation were fairly cheap, it's a pretty bloody expensive city when it comes to food (we rarely found anywhere you could pay under £50 for 2 mains and 2 soft drinks), and especially alcohol.

New House Tour

Saturday, 22 July 2017
We moved into our new house in early February this year.  As it's a new build we were pretty lucky in that we didn't need to do much apart from buy furniture and unpack, so it was a fairly stress free process!  I had a week off work on moving week so was able to get all of the furniture built and about 80% of things unpacked within the first few days.  I felt like a flatpack building machine!  

We've started putting up pictures and things on the walls in the last few weeks, but won't get round to painting until end of this year/early 2018 (technically with new builds you aren't supposed to paint for a year as the walls are still drying out).  So it's white wall city for a good wee while!
