As we start our first full week of adventures post summer holidays (we started Tuesday last week), I thought I would share a little something with you.
The problem is that the little something is quite hard to describe in words. But I will give it a go.
It’s Monday morning and I’ve have been hearing the extreme weather warning for Monday and Tuesday for the last few days. My waterproofs are hung up by the door and I ensure that I have plenty of clothes and shoes to change into if I will get truly soaked. (I did)
And yet I am smiling from ear to ear and almost shaking with excitement to get out and start the adventures.
Mondays mean a fresh start to explore and have fun.
The Summer holidays were indeed fun and gave me a chance to recharge my batteries with a slower tempo. Slower by no means is lazy especially when looking after two small children and a border collie.
I was missing my daily group dog walks, but I rediscovered my love of jogging, covering just under 100 km of trail runs during July.
Throughout the summer time-off I tried to discover some new areas and trails in Oslomarka which I will explore this coming Autumn.
These feelings, motivations and ideas are in stark contrast to how my weekends and holidays used to be spent. The closer the time to returning to work and the office, the more I felt in my stomach the feeling that it was not what I wanted to do or where I wanted to be.
And yet it was only by having these previous experiences and gut feelings that I now know that what I am doing is absolutely the right choice.

Have a lovely evening with your doggies and we are back again in the morning for more dogwalking in Oslo nature.
