my favourite dresses from the Oscars

Apparently Sky TV had the rights for the Oscar's yesterday - I really wanted to see it but I guess I will have to wait until ITV or BBC decide to send it during the week. But pictures are of course already all over out here on the internet - here are my favourite dresses.

Natalie Portman - she must be the most beautiful pregnant woman I have ever seen.

Scarlett Johansson - she always looks great on the red carpet.

... I guess I like purple dresses.

Cate Blanchett - this was interesting


I realised I haven't told you about Åre - our skiing trip.

I can summarise it for you: It was AMAZING!

View from our cabin

I had to ski, and usually I don't like learning things - I prefer being good at it from the start, because that way you normally don't make any mistakes (another thing I don't like). Anyway, Andreas has taught me to be more patient with myself and let myself learn - and now I think I'm almost at the stage where I enjoy learning. Skiing was amazing and although I wasn't very good at it I enjoyed the beautiful moments on the mountain. he speed, the sunshine, the glistening snow, feeling really hungry and eating with a good conscious, hot chocolate up on the mountain side and so on. It is idyllic and lovely.

It was a bit windy one evening :)

We are definitely going again next year! And it will probably be even better then because then I can ski with my husband.

back on track

GOSH! The past two weeks have been absolutely crazy for me. I have started a new job, passed my practical driving test (I NOW DRIVE ON MY OWN!), traveled to Sweden and Denmark (one day each place so I barely had time to buy Lösgodis) and Friday I got locked out of our house because I forgot my key and Andreas was at the gym... waited 1h45min... not so great because I had grocery in the car.

Anyway, tomorrow a new week starts with new opportunities. Oh, and Andreas has promised that I will get a new phone this time. First he said that if I get a distinction on my Masters I could get a new phone, then I got a distinction but no phone. Then he said that if I get the job I will get a new phone... I got the job but no new phone, and the last promise was that if I pass my test I can get a new phone... haha. I still don't have a new phone but I have my eye on me iPhone and the htc Desire. Not sure which one I will chose yet but either of them will make it much easier for me to blog on a more regular basis.

Now I'm going to dye my hair whilst watching the latest episode of Solsidan - it's our little "fix" over here in the UK :)

I'm feeling exhausted today. Didn't get to bed until mdinight yesterday because we were chasing whipping cream all over Bracknell. We managed to finish our semlor and they tasted delicious. YUM! I am planning to eat one for dinner tonight - just before my session with PT - HAHA! I hope he doesn't ask what I've eaten today. :S

I'm at work and I'm counting the days. Just Thursday and Friday and then in the evening we are off! Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh - it's going to be great and hopefully I will finally learn to ski properly!
