My dad says there are rumours in my home town that the fab new shopping centre isn’t doing very well, allegedly. So, as a selfless gesture, I’ve decided to pack my high heels (well a few pairs of them at least), call ahead for a hair appointment (and most probably a much needed manicure as my nails have not recovered from the self-administered acrylics I received complements on at many a shop counter over Christmas) and take my entourage home in a bid to support the local economy.
So while the rest of Norway will be skiing at their cabins or lounging on their package holiday poolside loungers, I’ll be sacrificing my children’s winterferie break in the name of helping the people back home. God knows how I'll manage the resulting luggage but this is a burden my credit card and I are prepared to bear.
Don’t ever say that I neglect my roots – actually to look at me right now you’d think that that’s exactly what I have been doing but just YOU try and get an appointment at Toni & Guy with Jelena within pre-school hours in the next two weeks!
