Report from Koh Tao

Oh yes, new images and a new report on what is happening with our house.
Everything is progressing by leaps and bounds much is ready, but much remains. Aon and the construction team working on like crazy. What is finished is the storage-room outside, the stairs are fixed, the railings around the house is painted and finished. We talked to Aon on Koh Tao the day before yesterday and she told me also that the gutter soon is in place, she wants to fix it as soon as possible before the rainy season comes to Koh Tao, so we can start to collect water.
You hear, there is a lot happening now. But the best part is that we have got more digital design pictures of the garden, outdoor terraces, mini bar and especially the pool! The pictures are fabulous, go to Future plans under Dream house and see for yourself!
This is a sample:

Take care!
Love from us! <3

Rapport från Koh Tao

Tjohoo, nya bilder och ny rapport om vad som händer med vårt hus.
Allt går framåt med stormsteg mycket är klart men mycket återstår. Aon och byggteamet jobbar på som bara den. Det som är klart är förrådet ute, trapporna är fixade, räckena runt huset är målade och klara. Vi pratade med Aon på Koh Tao i förgår och hon berättade även att stuprännorna är snart är på plats, hon vill fixa det så fort som möjligt innan regnperioden kommer till Koh Tao så vi kan börja samla vatten.
Ni hör ju, det är massor som händer nu. Men det bästa är att vi har fått fler digitala design bilder på trädgården, utetoaletten, minibaren och framför allt poolen!! Bilderna är helt otroliga, gå in på Framtidsplaner under Drömhuset och se själv!
Här ett smakprov:
Ta hand om er!
Love from us!! <3

Wonderful Summer-week!

Hi there!
Hope you all doing well around the world!
Another week has past and we got some lovely people who has visiting us here in Oslo. Last weekend Tomas mom Gunilla and Anders  was here and during the whole week my mom Gunnel and my grand mom Ingrid was staying with us. We had a couple of fantastic days with beautiful summer weather.
The whole week has been loaded with lots of sun, delicious food, small trips, heat, wine and love. Completely wonderful!
On Tuesday we where on an island called Langøya. On Wednesday we walked around Vigeland Sculpture Park and in the evening we sail out in the Oslo-fjord to do some sightseeing and eating lots of fresh prawns. On Thursday we rent a car and did a road-trip to Norwegians fifth largest lake Tyrifjord and its beautiful landscape. On Friday it was raining so we just did some shopping-hours. On Saturday it was sunny again and we spent the whole day on the island Gressholmen and on Sunday we just relaxed and watch the great movie ”Water for Elephants” and then we took a evening walk to to show Oslo Opera House to mom and grand mom.

And then this lovely week was til its end, they traveled back to Sweden on Monday.
It was so fun to have them here the whole week, we are missing them so much. The next year when they coming back we hope they going to stay for two weeks. 😉
Thank you so much for this wonderful summer-week! More pictures you’ll find here.

But now this summer has come to its end, it has turned below 20 degrees and it rains a lot.
It’s sad, we thought that we should have a few more hot days with sun, but if you look on the weather forecast it will not happened.
But then we long even more to stay in our beautiful new renovated house on Koh Tao. It is only 4 month left now until we’ll see it again!!  We got some new animated pictures from Aon yesterday! Look, isn’t going to be amazing?

Tomas has gone to his job and I’m off work to day, so now I’ll curl up on the sofa with a nice book and a cup of tea while the rain pouring down the window.

Take care,
Peace and Love

Day of sorrow…

It is completely surreal what happened in Oslo yesterday, Friday 22 July!
It’s so hard to take in, but our thoughts go to Norway and Oslo today!

We are safe and sound, me and Tomas. We took a bus to Båstad on Thursday, to spend the weekend in Sweden with Tomas’s mother Gunilla and her man Anders.
And we can say that we feel really lucky! And it also seems that all our friends and colleagues we have in Oslo also has survived and are safe. Feels great!
I know that the restaurants I’m working in, D/S Louise and Lekter’n are closed today…
As said we find no words, as surly many others, just thoughts and questions how and why?

So good news in the middle of the chaos…
We have finally received the quotation from Aon on Koh Tao Villas!
Now she will go ahead and complete our dream home, everything will be so fantastic! Finally!

This is animated images from our garden., how it will look like when we go there in December.

Isn’t it incredible nice?

It is so much fun when Aon will put her own touch on our dream home, it feels like she wants to realize what we want!
Now we yearn even more to our lovely house on our paradise island, Koh Tao!

Thank again to you who read our blog, it warms our harts!

We light a candle for Oslo and all afflicted with sorrow in their harts…

Big hugs from us, Linda & Tomas
Take care of each other!

Update June!

Hello all of our friends!
A small update for you in the middle of the summer!

It’s almost three weeks since we left our lovely island Koh Tao and our lovely house! Time fly by so fast! And we long there as usual, every day but yesterday we booked tickets to Thailand on 18 December. We will be there for five weeks this time and its going to be wonderful! And hopefully our lovely house will be definitely finished when we arrive. Only one year behind schedule!

We enjoying some warm summer days and nights in Oslo, while we work a lot!
Last week on Wednesday, me, Linda had my birthday. I had an perfect day with my darling Tomas, we had picnic in the grass under a warm and big sun, with some nice food and drinks. Just enjoying summer. After that I had a small dinnerparty with some of my nice colleges from work. We were drinking lots of Rosé-wine with Russhian-water (If you have not tried it yet, you have to try it! Yummy!!) I had baked Broccoli-Blue Cheese pie and a Salmon pie, and for dessert I got an huge Chocolate-mousse cake from a kitchen-chef in the restaurant I working in. It was so mighty that I still have a big piece left in the fridge and It’s almost a week ago since my birthday. Puh!! But we had a great day and evening and it did not end until 5 o’clock in the morning! I was lucky to had a day off from work that day!! =D

This weekend Tomas went home to the North. He spent some nice days in his cabin with family and friends. They had great weather and did some BBQ, drinking beers and played guitar, also to the sun rises again. =P
A funny thing that happened to him when he flew to Stockholm was that he sat 6 rows from Jered Leto, the lead singer in the band 30 seconds to Mars!! We are a huge fan of them!! He spoke to him and took a photo of him! Whiii so exiting!!

That was all for this time!
Ops I almost forgot one thing, one million thanks to you who read our blog!
We have reach 30 000 visitors in a couple of months, that is just amazing! Thanks a lot again!

Check out the new pictures from my birthday!

Have a great summer!
Big hugs from us!

Äntligen här igen!

Nu sitter vi här på terrassen igen och det är så himla underbart! Vi älskar verkligen att vara här! Några kalla pils går ner genom strupen medan vi ser ut över Sairee Beach små lysen.
Vi sitter med Tomas kompisar Arvid och Glenn som är här på några dagars visit för att hälsa på oss och ha några sköna veckor i Thailand.

Om en stund så ska vi hoppa i säng, vi kommer sova som prins och prinsessa i våra sköna sängar. Imorgon kommer bli en ”mycket-att-får gjort-dag” hoppas vi?! Det är söndag och vi vet ju att det mesta i Thailand står stilla när det är söndag. Förmiddagen ska spenderas i telefonen och ringa runt till folk så vi får allt gjort under veckan vi är här. Eftermiddagen ska spenderas i Chalok Harbour och deras pool. Längtar efter sol och bad nu!
Måndagen blir rivstart att får igång allt, köpa växter, bygga till trädgården och påbörja det som ska göra inomhus!

Ja, ni hör att vi har som vanligt fullt upp! Men vi ska försöka hinna med några dyk också på Scuba Junction troligtvis på tisdag!

Ha det gott, nu tar vi en sista kall pils sen god natt!
Vi hörs, puss och kram =D
