These days.....

Peace :-DThe weather here has been lovely for the past few days, summer has literally arrived. That fits....I have two essays and four bookreviews to hand in in only three weeks time ;-) Typical, never understood why there are exams in spring, it´s always sunny during revision ;-)

At least I´ve decided upon my essay topics, the one in the materials of folklore is going to be on food as a presentation of cultural identity, taking examples from both Iceland and Scotland it will feature such delicasies as fermented shark, soured rams testicles, hot dogs and a Polish chockolate bar called Prins Polo. For my other paper, the one on literature and folklore, I´ll be looking at Magic as presented in the Harry Potter books, in fan communities and as presented in the variety of other material mainly targeted at adolescents.

In other news, the kids had their first Judo grading the other day and are now the proud bearers of a red and a red striped obi (belt) respectively. :-D And the mum is of course even prouder ;-P

Then the bicycles we bought the other day finally arrived, inducing a great longing for the outdoors in Ragnar and a certain sense of imbalance in Elena ;-) He´s loving every minute of it whereas her stamina is somewhat lessened by the fact that she´s having great difficulty gaining her balance. Hence we´ve had extra excercise of late, trailing alongside her, keeping her balance and running behind her, unobtrusively, of course :-D
I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike... I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike... I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike...
