moif world update; Vilde one month old

March was a hectic month, with all manner of things happening. Vilde's birth being the most monumentous (though it already feels like it happened several months ago) and the subsequent rearranging of our home to accomidate the family expansion. I have now been moved into the smaller back room to make way for my progeny, and I've spent the last week trying to settle in. This was made all the more difficult by rapid deterioration in my health (I've been bleeding internally now for about five weeks, thanks to the chronic illness I've suffered from since 1993) and Magne contracting chickenpox, and boy did he get it bad!

I actually don't mind moving as the back room is smaller and more 'hyggeligt'. I'm looking forwards to gaming in here, which I hope will be possible despite the fact that the children sleep much closer to where we'll be sitting than they did before.

One thing is for certain, I've now seen all the boxes with my figures, stacked in one great pile and the amount of money represented is not as overwhelming as a lot of people I know from the internet, but its quite an eye opener to me, not least since its about five years since I bothered to take stock and count them all.

Health - never take it for granted (I know I don't now). Hope you get better soon.
Vilde looks as though he has some serious work to do (faces like that usually signal some heavy duty nappy work!!).

Cracking photo - when they're that young they just look like little old people..... very quizzical...

Get well soon... sounds nasty..

She has the wisdom of ages in her face, where as her brother, now 2 has progressed to the stage where he either looks slack jawed at everything, or lets his tongue loll out. Freja, now 5½ is as devious and manipulative as only a little girl can be, but she still hasn't learned the finer art of disseminating her duplicity. I know one day she'll be able to manipulate me easily, but she still has a long way to go.

On the other, I've noted that when ever she has a friend over to play, they manage to combine their devious manipulations in such a way that makes it almost impossible to counter without using the strict parent tactic.
