Crown Princess Mette-Marit and the Queen on Norway at the ceremonial welcome for the President of Ireland, Mary McAleese, in the grounds of the royal palace, Tuesday.
It has been just another normal week in my nomadic life: hanging out with the Irish president, and the Norwegian king and queen, goofing about with the press pack over from Dublin, and completely neglecting my children. Oh and I got to wear clothes other than jeans, and I wore high heels, although not my bondage pair mentioned in previous posts. Didn't think they were royal diplomatic material.
But back to the relatively stress-free life of mommydom today with Erin's 6th birthday and my father's arrival tonight. The adrenaline is still flowing though which is why I've been awake since four.
By the way, to any Irish reading, President McAleese really is a credit to our country and I can't imagine a better ambassador to represent it. Majorly impressed.
