It seems I have finally succumbed to the lure of the blogs. You can blame Tina; she suggested it the other day. (",)
I don’t pretend that my (very) random musings are going to be of earth-shattering importance but I thought this could be a nice way to keep in touch with friends and family. A sort of open letter if you will, and updates on anything nice/interesting that’s happening. If you want to comment on anything it would be great, but don’t feel like you have to.
I think since everyone is so spread out it is sometimes difficult to know what’s happening to everyone, we only hear about it if/when something big happens… and sometimes not even then. I would love to get to know everyone again with the more daily things, the small blessings or tribulations that make up life instead of the major ups and downs which seem to be what is usually communicated in daily emails.
The reason for writing in English is that since so many of my friends are English they’ll understand too. Of course you can comment in whatever language you wish, maybe I’ll do some posts in Norwegian if it’s something more for family but for the opening post I thought I’d do it this way.
As you can probably tell I’m not really used to this so I’m rambling a bit. I guess it’ll be a good way of flexing my writing muscles too, as what I seem to be doing mostly these days is emails about work, spreadsheets with numbers and formulas and messaging back and forth with my friends. Not especially conducive to “leisure” writing.
So, here’s to you all. Thank you for being a part of my life, I love you all lots!
