Cooking with Elsa

I don't often let Elsa help me in the kitchen.
But lately, she has been quite insistent in trying out some easy recipes on her own.
So, with some trepidation I allowed her full rein of the kitchen (with me watching anxiously from the sidelines).

Kitchen with a View

What I love most about the apartment is the panoramic view of the harbour from my kitchen. Priceless!


While the house was under seiged by boxes, the family moved to a hotel apartment in the Islands Brygge area.
What a change of scenery.
We're no longer surrounded by lush greenery (although at this time most trees are leave-less) and rolling hills.
Instead, our super-modern ultra minimalist apartment overlooks the harbour, scrapyard and a massive power station.


154 m2 modern furnished apartment with 3 bedrooms and 3 spacious balconies.
3 bedrooms. Large bathroom. Modern kitchen with all white goods, sea view. Sitting room with 2 sofas. Dining area with sea view. Lounge area.
Fully equipped kitchen, vacuum cleaner, iron, cable television and radio, washing machine, dishwasher, oven, fridge and freezer

Islands Brygge 79A

Boxed - Final Day

The snow came early this year....
The movers came with 2 20-feet cargo container to store our brand of junks before taking them to our next destination and home.
Wonder when I'll see them again.... missing my stuff already...

Boxed - Day 2

Second day of packing....

The house looked like a war zone. I had a crazy urge to put things in order before quickly realising that it would be kinda pointless.
Spent the morning packing our personal stuff and clothes.
Kept having to ask for more of those wardrobe boxes from the packers. Managed to colour-code everyone's clothes and arrange them in seasons... really Muna, you have much too much time on your hand!!
By the end of the day, the packers managed to pack most of our stuff. The house is now full of neatly stacked boxes.

Boxed - Day 1

The morning started early with the packers arriving at our place at around 8.
I just realised that I have an allergic reaction to the carton boxes.
My nose were blocked and my eyes went all teary, red, puffy and itchy... and the antihistamine didn't seemed to be working either.

Bella Notte

“Warm summer sun, shine kindly here.
Warm southern wind, blow softly here.
Good night, dear Florence
Good night, good night.”

Olive Branch

“His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.”
