There is a food festival in Stavanger, Norway every year. Usually it last for 5 days. This year about 70 stands take part in this festival. Many kinds of food we can find here. Not only Norwegian food but also traditional foods from other countries such as Thailand, Mexico, Egypt, Italy, USA, South Africa and Ethiopia because many immigrants from those countries have been living here for years.
So yesterday I went to this festival together with my husband and my two little daughters for lunch. We walked from home coz we live close to town where this festival held. We need a little exercise anyway besides the weather was very nice. It’s summer, sun shining and the sky is blue. We tried food from Ethiopia. The portion was too little but the food was okay.
On the way back home we stopped at small lake. Some people were relaxing under the sun and some children were swimming. Since we didn’t plan to go there so I didn’t bring swim suit for my daughter. I just let her playing water and sand naked. Fortunately there was a small boy who also naked so at least I didn’t feel bad or embarrassing. Finally at 3.30 we went home. We all tired and my daughters felt a sleep soon we got home. It’s a hard day for me and I realize that it’s not easy being a mother. Needs a lot of energy to look after the children and do house works especially without having a maid. But still I’d rather being a mother and a housewife than having a good career and travel around the world but no children. Maybe others prefer the opposite. So, it’s just a matter of choice.
