Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

936559_562591450485126_1884283532_nErik just got his first passport and we’re getting ready for our Christmas holiday up north, in cold Norway! Well, the perception of cold or warm is relative, since for my husband the current temperature in his hometown, which is just above 0, is considered “warm” whereas for me, coming from a Mediterranean, mild climate, this is super cold and an extreme winter temperature.

While I was preparing Erik’s suitcase, Roy said that in some of the outfits I chose for him, he’s gonna look like an austronaut. The truth is, I am not sure how much clothes can be enough for such temperatures, which are in the range of just above 0 and can go as low as 15 or 20 below 0. I also wear tons of clothers whenever we go there. Imagine that when the locals wear T-shirts, I wear a winter jacket 🙂 How much clothes can be enough for a 4 1/2 months baby who was born in Malta and is about to go in the middle of winter in one of the coldest countries in Europe?

The good news are that the Norwegian homes are super warm and we are going to spend quite some time indoors. In Malta we tend to wear warm clothes in the house, and not so much different clothes when we go out, whereas in Norway people wear T-shirts in the house and lots of warm clothes, hats and gloves when they go out.

Anyways, I am very much looking forward to our holidays. After almost 7 years with Roy, this is going to be the first time we get to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s together with his family in Norway. The time has arrived for Erik to get to see the second out of his three home countries. Greece will be the last one to visit, in the summer 2014.

Most probably I won’t update my blog until we’re back to Malta, so I’d like to take whis opportunity and wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you in 2014!
Take care.
