Wow, it's 16th July already! Time flies! So far July has been a pretty busy month, enjoying the nice weather and seeing friends. Think I can count on one hand the amount of nights we've just had at home in front of the computer.
The last week has been the busiest. We were pretty active climbing and doing outdoor stuff. Last Tuesday we went indoor climbing, which we have consistently done on Tuesdays now.
Thursday was time for our first outdoor climbing session of the year. Russ, Torkjel, MO and I set off from Storo to Grefsenåsen to find the crag. It was easier said than done. You can read the full story on Russ' blog www.eatmymonkeydust.com. Well worth the read! We had a BBQ on a lovely viewpoint before we finally found the crag and did three routes before the sun set.
Friday I went to the cinema to see Sex and the City with Irene, which was a good laugh. We spent most of the film laughing at the people around us though. They were really engaging their lives in the film.
On Saturday me and Torkjel set off to Sværsvann to go walking in Østmarka. We had a great sunny walk on Saturday afternoon, passing Sandbakken and saying hello to the tame sheep at Vangen before finding a nice deserted "odde" by a lake in the middle of the forrest. We enjoyed a quiet evening watching the animal life and even getting to see a Beaver swimming in the water! We spent the night in our little tunnel tent, before setting off again on Sunday morning. Unfortunately it started to rain, but that didn't stop us. We walked from the lake to Mønevann and Losby, before ending the trip in Finstadlia having to run to catch the bus! We made it though. When we got home, we were knackered, but had a great trip!
Another week has now started, and it's still as busy as it has been. Monday I met Katrin and MO for a meal at Lompa (Olympen). That was the first time the three of us have done anything together since 2002! Can't believe it's been that long!
Yesterday was climbing time again, and today I'm working late. We've been thrown out of our kitchen this week, as all the water pipes in there are being changed. Means eating out every day, but I'm not complaining about that :) It's interesting being able to look all the way down to the basement through a hole in the floor though... Specially since the basement is 5 floors down...
