On Thursday the 1st February I went home to Norway again, though only for two days; I returned yesterday, 4th February. Thursday was nightmare-ish, with my flight from Manchester being delayed three times (luckily they changed their mind the third time and went back to the previous delayed departure time), but against all odds I managed to catch my original flight from Oslo to Værnes! At one point I didn't think I was gonna make it home that day at all.
Friday I attended the Spelet Om Heilag Olav concert in Levanger Church (one of two reasons I went home this week-end). It was stunning, and as per usual there were quite a few tears (more like rivers, really) running down my face. Well worth it!
Saturday was audition day for - yes - Spelet om Heilag Olav ("The Saint Olav Drama"). I went to Verdal just before 12am and the auditions lasted to approximately 2pm. Could have gone better, but hey. Me and my dad (who was my driver, I didn't want to drive on the icy roads, haha) went to see his brother afterwards, which was nice.
Two days isn't a lot at all, and yesterday - Sunday - I took the train from Verdal 11.52am to the airport. The flights were quite pleasant, I managed to sleep almost all the way to Copenhagen, had some food and beer (the Liverpool - Tottenham match was on) at the airport there, and then a nice flight over to Manchester. From there I thought I was gonna have a relaxing train journey to Lime Street Station, but no. I had to change trains THREE times, first at Manchester Piccadilly, then at Oxford Road, then finally at Hunts Cross. From Hunts Cross the train took me to Liverpool Central, which made the walk home slightly longer, but fortunately the weather was nice.
Now it's full speed ahead until I finish my course!
