I don’t think I’ve done anything else than reading this week…Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Finished today, and I’m left with a numb feeling…it’s all over, no more Harry and Ron and Hermione and all the rest. I’m not going to give the ending away, so I’ll just leave it with this.

Next week will be quite busy, not often that happens 😉
On Wednesday, I’ll be attending the last Allsang på Grensen (Sing-along-at-the-border) this year. For those of you that don’t know what this is, I’ll try and explain. Swedish television has for several years had a music summer show called Allsång på Skansen, where artists perform while the audience sings along. This year Norwegian television decided to try the same, and they located it at the fortress here in Halden. They record it on Wednesdays and air it on Thursdays, and for 5 weeks the success has been incredible, with about 7000 people as audience (they don’t let any more people in due to safety), and about 50 % of Norwegian telly viewers watching the show. I haven’t had the chance to go there earlier since that would leave Arkas home alone for about 16 hours (first work, then the show), but my mum and her boyfriend is taking care of Arkas Wednesday. The artist I really want to see is Ingrid Bjørnov, she’s a great piano player and writes incredible funny lyrics about every day life. S and I went to see Bjørnov’s show a few years back, it was wonderful. I’ll meet S and her daugter E at the fortress, that’ll be fun.
On Thursday E is turning 4 years old, so I’ll be at her birthday party after work. Can’t believe it’s been 4 years already, time flies by so incredible fast!
On Friday I’m planning on spending a few hours at Down on the Farm (in English: Down on the Farm). I really want to hear Willam Hut and Sivert Høyem, but the price is what’s bugging me, NOK 570,-. I know it’s not much for listening to two artists (and one inbetween that I don’t know who are), but for me that’s a lot of money, especially spent on something “unimportant”. Well, I’ll just have to think about it during the week and see what I decide. I was there last year together with my boyfriend at the time, see the entry Previous entries from my old blog and find the title Festivaltid (in Norwegian).
