Lost in translation?

Well. I have not succeeded in disciplining my mind and concentrating completely on handling the practical tasks I have to carry out these days, so in between being a good host to the exchange student (who has now left), planning the party coming up for our oldest son and carrying out some decent season ending arrangements for my swimmers and water workout participants, I couldn't help myself doing some changes on this blog. It seems my morning coffee tastes better when I drink it while using the computer, and today it has spread to the afternoon tea too.

I have given it a lot of thought lately whether to start writing in English, and now I find it a good time to do so. I don't really know how to do it, and maybe something will get lost in the attempt, but I so much would like to learn and hope we can share a good laugh over all the mistakes I'm definitely going to make. Please interfere and educate me (gently) if this gets out of hand and my posts become (even more) impossible to understand and annoying to read.

I also took the opportunity to rewrite the About page. I know I have done this about six million times during the time I have been writing here, but it seems so important to me. I feel it has to change along with the changes going on in my perception and understanding of myself and the world, and it is time for me to move on in regards of the content as well as the language.

If you want to comment, you can do it in any language you like - I'll be consulting Google Translate all the time from now on anyway to carry out this language learning project, haha.

And now I will post this post and go shopping for materials for place cards and other party stuff with peace in mind, knowing that I am both blind to details and poor at English, but excellent at learning.

  1. I love it ! It is an exellent idea. I just had guests from London and I felt how much I miss speaking english - but now I can visit your blog :) Thank you.

    1. Thank YOU, Gitte :-). Let's expand our worlds! I have such an urge to cross borders and see new things, and I suddenly arrived at the point where the time felt right to do so on this blog. I don't know if it will work, but I will give it my best try. It also sharpens my consciousness and reflection towards what I'm writing, and I always liked that challenge.
