Return of the family!!!
Poor friend Dag, he had to rent Sjøbad this Easter. The
holiday house on Hvaler is owned by Fellesforbundet, and available
to members only. The place is lovely, literally placed only a stone's
throw (does the English speaking use that phrase?) from the sea. There
no close neighbours. Another way to phrase it: PERFECT.
In the olden days, when I worked at Fellesforbundet,
the employees could rent the place, if NO members had reserved it. My
family found that a clever arrangement. We made use of cancellations,
unpopular seasons etc. and really enjoyed the place. Later we have
visited once in a while, just looking around and longed for it and the
Easter and Sjøbad implies, luckily, the blue common
hepitica. And almost always a lot of it to. This time I found a few
lilac ones, oh yes, they exist too.
On the left the whole family are gathered by the shore. The
house is excellent equipped, has a fine terrace and marvelous touring
ground nearby. You can walk by the sea or in the forest or up on one of
the wind-swept hills.
Addition to being lazy, we read, play cards and other games,
make good food and walk. The telly was not on for a minute.
The members of Fellesforbundet should use the place even more.
It's a wonderful leisure place, not only in summer, but in spring and
autumn as well.
We find it natural, that when you have a job, you also become
a member of a appropriate workers union. When employed, we benefit from
work the unions have done, giving us regulated working conditions etc.
Of course we also have to pull our weight, that is, being member of one
of the Trade
Unions in LO.
We try to convince our oldest daughter to find a part time
work at a restaurant's kitchen or something similar. Then we
could go to Sjøbad without Dag.
We came home Tuesday before Maundy Thursday. Wednesday the
girls left for Hamar to enjoy the wonderful weather in Easter
(moahahaha). Or sleeping with the head in the keyboard and get the back
rubbed with soap. Also called The
