Ah, summer vacation. I’ve had my first week, where Anniken and I have spent two days with my family and friends back home and the weekend in Bodø for a wedding. We didn’t see any polar bears and it was too far south for the midnight sun this time of year, but the wedding and the boat trip with Nordlændingen in the wind and the rain was excellent. Plus how can old colleagues from Rubberduck and an open bar possibly fail? It can’t.

Yesterday we moved a car load of Anniken’s stuff to my our apartment. There are more cushions in the living room now than I thought possible. The number of pink objects in the apartment has also increased considerably over the last few months. Thankfully, I’ve been able to negotiate a deal where I will still be master of my own tiny domain; the two tables with my computer gear. Don’t get me wrong, though, I really enjoy both the subtle and not so subtle changes. Now official being two people living in the apartment feels great.
