Winter comforts...

With winter here, it's nice to start looking for things which make us feel comfortable and warm.
I suppose first thing to mind is a candle burning before the door. But, as this picture shows, the new rose which has sneaked into the frame leaves me completely confused. Don't know when this bush is going to stop blooming.
In search of other things warm, we went to the opening of a new shop in Vestnes yesterday (looking for thermal underwear).
Congratulations to Sport1 for creating such a great retail outlet. Let's hope they can keep the opening day prices available all year round,,, wishful thinking,,, but all the best to them.

But, when it comes to winter warmth in Norway, there is really only one way to go. Food !!!
And there is nothing better than what we had for dinner tonight.
Pinnekj√łtt... Served with potatoes, mashed swede, and a weird Norwegian sausage...
For the benefit of Shetlanders reading this, it's a bit like Reestit Mutton, although a little lacking in salt.
For Norwegians reading this, yes I've been converted to this brilliant meal.
And for folk from other places reading this.... You just don't know what you're missing,,, It's heaven on Earth.

The only thing about this traditional Norwegian meal which I've failed to take on board is the idea that it should be accompanied by a glass of Aquavit (a bloody awful spirit drink). I've settled on a small glass of Scotch, as the perfect accompaniment,,, or even a big glass. HIC!!

Yun's aa fir enoo.
Have a good weekend everybody, and remember to set your clocks back and enjoy the extra hour in bed tonight.
