In the Jordbærpikene café, again. No waffles this time so I'm having a baked cheesecake.

The reason for being out is to buy some token birthday presents for my sons. I forgot one, and I'll be out of the country for another so I've decided to combine them into one un-birthday on Sunday.

Got some presents and cards, next stop is the Vinmonopol to get a few bottles of booze.

The forecast was for snow today but it hasn't materialised. I decided to wear a fake fur partly because of the forecast.

It's very warm and cosy but I'm beginning to think that it would suit someone taller

@ninalanyon I think you're inspired by french something something

@elafina I haven't got many white items. Perhaps I should take a look today and see what i can find for tomorrow's outing. Should be able to find a white jumper at least. And I have a long Icelandic wool skirt somewhere.

Not sure what I'm inspired by but I don't think it's French, not consciously at least.

My intent is to be more colourful or at least more interestingly dressed than average. One inspiration is the late great Vivienne Westwood and her dictum "When in doubt, dress up!".

Some people always leave changing to winter tyres to that last possible moment. This year the bad weather came early so those who did so have had to scramble to get them changed.

This picture is from someone who queued for five hours to get his changed!

That's an amazing amount of time to wait for tires to get changed
ninalanyon · 61-69, T
@turbineman40 Yes. That's what happens when people put of doing it until they realize that they have to get the wheels swapped today or not drive tomorrow.

Looks like a good meal
ninalanyon · 61-69, T
@turbineman40 It's a bit small for a meal! Still that's a good thing, I want to stay slim.

@ninalanyon I have lost about eleven pounds since my wife passed away a long year ago now.. it feels good to be smaller and with very little belly

That's a strong incentive to get the tires changed
