Norway's national day!

T oday's the Norweg ian consti tuti on day ...but we usually don't call it that. It's just simply the 17th of may. ^^ We celebrate it by putting on our finest clothes, hoisting the norwegian flag to the top, parading around in the streets singing & celebrating. Nice ey? :) O ur constitution was signed at Eidsvoll on this day, nearly 200 years ago. Almost a hundred of those were spent in a union with Sweden... & why on earth we managed to stay in a danish union for a "400 years long night" before that, I really don't know? We've basically been someone else's bitch for the good part of a millennium.  o.O Sooo, I kinda see why the celebrations wasn't as big as it is today until the end of the 1800s...cause who would wanna wave around flags that looks like this one? ;P This flag's ours.  Been in my mums family for a loooong time. It's almost 2 x 3 meters. So it's huge!  Probably  been at a  public place somewhere...

Then kinda took over some of the other displays with different knick knacks to make it a bit more homely. They took pictures of it...so think/hope they liked it. ;P A lso been at my youngest niece's birthday party. :) 10 years!!! She got some spending money & flowers. :D I know the gift might've been a bit dull... But I do think that a young lady should get used to receiving bouquets of flowers. ;)  I 've also been at a shoe fitting. :D Weird plastic shoes...but I do envision the end result! Actually, I really wouldn't mind walking around in them as is. Cause the sole itself made me feel l
