About

“Quintessentially”  – my favourite word! My mother-in-law introduced me to this word and taught me how to pronounce it, luckily she is very patient as it took me a long time but after 30 minutes in the car I did finally get it! And I think it is the most wonderful word!

I am a working mum of a one year old boy,  married to an English man (well, he is half Scottish), and all living together in Norway. The ‘wee lad’ has just turned one, and he will hopefully be bilingual when he eventually starts to speak!

After many years together we have found that all though on the surface Norwegian and English people seem to be quite similar there are in fact many differences, all though not obvious, that can lead to a lot of misunderstandings.

Over time I will try to document those differences and the challenges we face in our every day life (e.g to have tea or coffee…)! 🙂

  1. Hei!
    Our daughter is 3 years old now and she speaks Norwegian to me and English to her father. Well, more like norglish… ” Pappa, yooo koming to fesh me fra det barnehage”.

    It’s interesting being a dual language family – I think the kids get the best of both world.

    My favourite word is ‘metamorphosis’ – it’s just such a pretty word when pronounced in English. But try saying ‘hippopotamus’ fast 10 times in a row – now that’s my challenge!!

    • How cute that your daughter speaks a mix of the two, it’s great for them though, learning two languages for “free”!

      “Metamorphosis” – that is a great word! 🙂

  2. very cool. so funny we chose the same theme for our blogs. may borrow some layout and widget ideas from you!!

  3. thank you for stopping by my blog!
    and I know that in the digital era the digital cameras can be very confusing, or very trappy (when you decide to stick only to “program” or “auto” mode). but actually it’s not that hard to lear the “manual” mode.
    If you need some advices don’t hesitate to ask 🙂 I’ll try to help 🙂
    hugs,
