I'm in a fase of my life where I'm into a lot of alternative stuff, after being convinced of the fact, that there's more between heaven and earth than meets the eye. This I will write about in my blog - in addition to every-day-stuff worth sharing.
Have you made similar experiences or just want to comment in any way - please feel free to do so in English, Swedish, Danish or Norwegian.
I hope you will enjoy this blog.

Pink dreams


It’s no secret that I love the color pink! So does my daughters :o)

There is a lot of pink in my house – and a lot of pink clothings to wash every single day!


Maybe my children are colored by me and my taste – or maybe it’s just that most girls somehow feels drawn towards this color? I don’t know – but what I do know is that if I let my fouryearold choose her outfit herself – it most likely have at least one pink spot on it :o)

Since all we buy and a lot we do - costs money - this made me think about just that – money - and about something I read about this resently.

What if nothing about money could be kept a secret anymore? What if everybody knew about every single money-transaction – made in the hole wide world? We would know everything about all companies, countries and private persons economic situations. Why do we keep this a secret at the first place? Why don’t we want others to know about our economic situation? What is this all about??


Anyway – we are getting close to the Easter and another weeks vacation – guess the pink gets competition from another color by then :o)



Lots of love and hugs from Torilpia :o)

Today I got a mail about me being the lucky winner of 750.000 GBP – but it was just a scam. What if it had been true??? :o) How much is that in Norwegian kroner?? About 6.5 million … WOW!!

They didn’t call me from the national lottery this weekend either .. :o/

BUT – we can dream .. anyway :o)

Often it’s almost better to be dreaming about something – than getting it. Someone once said to be “careful what you wish for” – so I guess it’s not for sure getting it, is for the best :o)

I think it was in Conversations with God – that it was written something like; you can always get what you wish for – but you can’t always get what you wish for. Meaning we can always get the wish – but not the thing we wish for. If you understand???

Well – I’ll just keep on dreaming .. every now and again .. :o)


I’ve just finished a couple of bags for my eldest daughter. She needs them for her underwear and socks. Not actually quality-products .. but they’ll have to do for now. I can clearly see that I need a lot of practice on my machine as well .. but as long as my youngest is impressed (and she is - as long as the machine is making some noise) – I’m satisfied .. :o) I’ll just hope my eldest will be as well (satisfied – not impressed .. haha ..)!

This actually made me think about a sewing-story from a couple of years ago. I was about to make some curtains and just had to sew a couple of short seams. I don’t use this machine very often – but I started the project. It was soooo heavy … but I made it – finally. It was kind of weird actually – since I’ve managed to pull the fabrics forward instead of backwards …. meaning the machine was sewing the wrong way … :o/ :o)

Have a great week – big hug from Toril :o)

PS; I am fully aware of  that I owe you a visit or ten .. and I promise I will do so .. eventually :o) HUGS!!

Another weekend!

I’m just posting this to wish you all a great weekend. Due to family-issues – my English blog suffers terribly. I will try to visit my regular readers this weekend – hopefully some new ones as well. For those of you that would like to read bits and pieces from my life in between my posts here – it is possible to go to my Norwegian blog and use the Google-translater. Not always correct translations – but if something seems weird – just ask :o) I feel terrible for not beeing able to update this blog as often as my Norwegian.

But I am here .. and I will be visiting your blog as soon as possible.


Outside it’s snowing – again – and everything is all white – again!

Just to comfort myself – due to this family-issues and all the snow – I’ve been shopping a few things today :o)


For the weekend – flowers and candles – colours and comfort!


So – enjoy the weekend :o)

All the best and lots of love!!

Hugs from Torilpia!!
