We took a trip out to see Laila, Anders and Lisa. Lisa opened a few of her presents, and made an outfit out of the wrapping paper. Also, Grid was a bit of a monkey. She kept stealing presents and decided to unwrap them herself!!
It was Odd's Birthday, and after opening his presents we headed out to Marie's for the annual Xmas get-together. A day earlier this year, as it fitted in better with some people's work schedules. But a good time had by all as usual, this time with an impromptu sing song. It was a bit tricky singing songs in Norwegian, especially when you don't know the tune to some of them!
Siv and I travelled to Norway for Xmas....and managed to catch up briefly (we thought) with the family in Oslo. However due to freezing fog (minus 14c), all planes from Gardermoen were heavily delayed. We boarded our flight eventually at 1.30 am....but had no Captain! He arrived at 2.30am, so we eventually arrived in Molde at 3.10am, and got to the house around 4.00am!!
At least we had the family in Oslo to keep us company...though it turned out to be a late night for them!! As you can see Markus was in his usual high spirits.
Siv met a lot of the girlies up town for a general pre-Xmas get together, starting at The Crusting Pipe, and then onto The Marquess of Anglesey. Sadly Sarah couldn't make it as she was a bit poorly, but there was a 'virtual Katy' there! Trood and Woodsy had impressively made the journey down....everyone seemed to have a good time!
