The Birthday Party

We celebrated my daughter's birthday this weekend, with eight little friends. Arctic Dad stayed up to midnight the night before to make this cheese cake with strawberries. And Hello Kitty muffins is always a hit.

The next ten weeks will be hard for our country. The trial against the man who killed 77 people, mostly teenagers, has started. We'll all be taken back to the dark days in July again. You can follow the trial on CNN

On the lighter note: Within a week we'll have 24 hour daylight in the Arctic. My favourite time - I get so much done! You can clean the windows at 2 am if you want, and no one will shake their head.

Should I do a 24/7 daylight crash course perhaps, like polar night?

I wish you a good week!

Very impressed with Arctic Dad's cheesecake! Lucky Lilli - yum! :-) And a 24/7 daylight crash course is a must, I agree. More soon my dear!

Wow! What a cute cake! 24 hour daylight sounds crazy to me. How long does it last? I, like you would get SO much done!!!

Ok, folks, 24 hour dayliht crash course will come! Kristen, it lasts to around august, so plenty of time to get things done in the middle of the night (we have plans of redecorating..). Midnight sun will arrive in the middle of May.

Artic Dad make a perfect cheesecake...yum!

24 hour daylight will you still have snow too!

What a stunning cake! Hats off to Arctic Dad, and a belated happy birthday to Lilli.

I've been thinking about you as we've watched the incredible trial unfurl. Friends of ours in Stavanger say their local newspaper offers an internet setting that will block all mentions of the trial, and that many people are using it. I can understand why.

Enjoy your light and sun, and I look forward to your crash course! Some of it may be applicable to us in Aberdeen.
