The House Hunt is done – we got it!!

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

It was quite a nerve-wracking day, but with a perfect result: WE’VE GOT THE HOUSE!!

Our bid was upped a tad (pocket money 😉 ) by the owner so that he (or his wife? 😉 ) at least got the feeling that they did well in the negotiations, but the deal was inevitable, and so it was done before the end of the day!

Gjerdrum is the place, the forest with a lake and ski-tracks are literally ’round the corner (50 meter), Oslo center is less than 30 minutes away and the airport just 20 minutes…it’s PERFECT!

Happy Birthday Willem-Jan!

My brother turns 35 today, so Yo Bro, Happy Birthday…Hurra for deg!

The two of us normally don’t make a big thing out of it, I guess we both have been ‘infected’ by the Aboriginal approach; you only celebrate when you reached a next stage in life, having a Birthday is not an accomplishment as such (you just have to keep on breathing 😉 ), still, I hope you have a nice day!
