Mirell: På sykkeltur med stortingspolitiker Abid Q.Raja

Søndag 21.juni

Stortingspolitiker og tidligere advokat Abid Raja skal sykle fra Lindesnes til Nordkapp den neste måneden. Selvfølgelig måtte vi i Arendal Cykleclub være med på etappen fra Arendal til Tvedestrand.

Det ble en fantastisk tur med følgebil fra Tesla, Specialized, politikere, barn, og andre sykkelentusiaster. Fredrick overakte Abid jubileumstrøyen til Arendal Cykleclub som han hadde på seg hele veien.

Mirell: Markadagen på Bjørnebo med Naturvernforbundet



Naturvernforbundet i Arendal arrangerte sammen med kompetansegruppen Bevar Arendal Bymark befaring av ny regulert E18 trase med tilførselsvei som vil gå igjennom Arendal Bymark. 

Mange, mange strømmet på innover til Bjørnebo i det flotte sommerværet. Turgåere, politikere, barn, syklister og markavenner. Fuglene kvitret og skogen viste seg fra sin flotteste side.

Det ble allikevel en alvorlig dag for mange. Det var rørende appeller, og under befaringen var det svært mange som ble alvorlig tynget da de så hvilke vakre områder som vil gå tapt dersom en slik trase blir vedtatt av Bystyret i Arendal.

Naturvernforbundet støtter forslag om vei, og ser behovet for en utbygging av eksisterende veinett, men ønsker følgende:

 

-E 18 krysset må ut av Bymarka og flyttes til Mørland hvor det orginalt var tenkt.

- Det kreves miljøtunnel fremfor en 23 meter bred bro med firefelts motorvei over Piletjenn

- TIlførselsveien Krøgenes må konsekvensutredes og flyttes slik at inngrepet blir mest skånsomt og hensiktsmessig

- Tilførselsveien Longum må fjernes eller flyttes slik at den kan begrunnes trafikalt.

- Det må ikke etableres et nytt lysløype nett med fire meter brede grusveier i områder som i dag er uberørt natur.

 

Naturvernforbundet mener at dialog og tverrpolitisk samarbeid  vil gjøre dette mulig uten for store økonomiske konsekvenser eller vesentlige forsinkelser.

Bymarka i Arendal er unik i sin utforming  og bruk. Den er i dag i gangavstand for mer enn 10 000 innbygger som nå vil bli berørt av støy, forurensning og lengre avstander dersom trase og forslag som er lagt frem blir akutalisert.



Arendal Kommune har fremmet forslag om nye lysløyper som bl.a. skal gå direkte under en 23 m bred fire felts motorvei ved Piletjenn. I dag er Piletjenn et av de mest brukte badevannene og utfartssteder i Bymarka. Piletjenn er viktig for speideren og er enkel å nå for barn og eldre. Naturvernforbundet mener stillhet og nærhet til naturen uten forurensing og støy fra biler og industri ,er noe av det viktigste ved friluftslivet. Derfor mener man at nye lysløper i dette området ikke er egnet eller utformet riktig.

Mirell: Travle dager hos Naturvernforbundet i Oslo

 

Flotte møter med Lars Haltebrekken og den fantastiske gjengen hos Naturvernforbundet i Oslo. Fokus er Bymarka i Arendal og en forsvarlig miljøprosess i utbyggingen av E 18. Jeg kan ikke understreke nok viktigheten av at et Bystyre og kommuneutvalg følger de juridiske og demokratiske retningslinjer. Man kan ikke fatte vedtak uten at man har et korrekt og grundig utredet grunnlag og følger de lover og regler som skal sikre denne prosessen.

 

Mirell Victoria: Drømme-genseren fra Hackett

Fredrick og jeg la merke til denne genseren med en gang den kom ut. Den er fra den nye racing kolleksjonen til Hackett.
Da vi var i London sist fredag på den nye Hackett flagstore i Regent street måtte vi jo bare kjøpe den. Er den ikke fin : Hackett rowing club

Its been some beautiful winter days, all sunny and clear sky, with a little bit of snow:-) I ve had to exams, and only one more to go next week. We have spent a lot of time with the family, going for beautiful walks, making amazing dinners and spending time with eachother. They say time is a healer, but we miss the two we have lost so much, taking it one day at the time <3

Mirell Victoria : Out in the forest

After all that has happend its like everything is a little out of place these days. We have planned two funerals in one month, its something I never thought could happen.
So spending the day out in the forest with Fredrick, mum and dad was so nice. Fresh and cold, but sunny and so beautiful <3 We talked, laughed and looked for Christmas threes. Coming home we finished the great day with an amazing pre Christmas dinner that mum had prepared. She is so good at cooking <3 Lots of fresh air, rosy cheeks and an amazing meal while listening to Christmas Music :-)

Mirell Victoria : Love my green flares :-)

Its time to take the flares back from the dust:-) They make you look tall and slim, and I love them:-)

Starting the day with a great smoothie filled with vitamins :-)

I love giving my body a real boost in the morning. And what is better than a smoothie filled with antioxidants and vitamins ?
Its really easy to do and take less than five minutes:-)
Fredrick and I made this one this morning:

1/2 honey melon
2 kiwis
1 orange
100g rasberries
5 ice cubes

Peel all the fruit and mix it in the blender
Add a little at the time
Add the icecubes in the end
Blend it all well
And Voila, a healthy and supertasty smoothie your body will love :-)
Have a beautiful morning :-)

Mirell Victoria: New pajamas from Lindex, perfect for cosy autnum nights :-)

You will always be the star that shines the most strongly, grandma <3

Today everything is so different. Grandmas funeral yesterday was beautiful, but today I feel so empty. I finally start to understand I ll never see her again. And I miss her so much <3
I want to thank each and one of you who was there as a part of her life, and those of you who said good bye to her yesterday <3

I m so happy to have Fredrick so close to me at this time. I cried so much this morning, and its so good to just feel his arms around me <3
We made a really nice breakfast while playing Edith Piaf, Andrea Bochelli and Sara Brightman on the stereo, the sun shining, and everything felt a little bit better <3 Again, I would like to thank each and one of you who has been there for us in this difficult time <3

Inspiration: English Countryside style

I hope you are all wonderful <3
I m out shopping for new items, and my inspiration is English Countryside style.
I ll show you what we have got when we are back:-)
Thinking squares, patherns, earth colours, strong sporty colours and clean cuts....

Mirell Victoria :Outfit: Gardentime in red, blue and white:-)

Its time to do the last preperations in the garden before winter. Its below freezing at nighttime so we have cleared most of the flowers. Today I ll be going out in the forest with my family to look for Christmasthrees that we will have outside in the garden :-) So exaited:-)
Lots of hugs

How to get the look : Find a pair of tight trousers that you like, add a shirt in a contrast colour, and then put a vest over in a colour that matches. A big belt in the same colour as your boots/ shoes will frame the outfit: Sporty and fresh :-)

Here I ve used : Trousers: Vero Moda, Shirt: Zara, Boots Ralph Lauren

Mirell Victoria: SEPTEMBER OUTFITS

Her er noen av antrekkene fra september. Inspirasjonen er countrystyle og preppy. Noen antrekk dere likte?
Klem

Todays outfit: Kopier Gossip Girl stilen

Er det en serie som har gjennomført stil er det Gossip Girl! Elsker klærne og stilen der. Derfor har vi valgt å kle Fredrick likt Chuck Bass i dag. Hva synes dere?
Synes bildene ble sååå bra:-)

Blazer: He by Mango, Bukse:H/M, Skjorte: He by Mango, Sløyfe og sko: Zara

Antrekk med farger: gult og rødt

Gult, rødt, skotskeruter, en spennende hatt, høye hæler og du blir fort lagt merke til. Kanskje ikke et hverdags antrekk, men garantert en som blir lagt merke til og knipset bilder av, noen ganger må man se nyskapende og kreativ ut mens man leker med designerenes trender.
Dont like it or like?

Gul topp: Floyd, Bukser:Vero Moda, Belte: H/M, Veske:Vero Moda

Todays style: Black and white

Thank you, each and one of you for all the warming words for my grandmother. You are so incredible kind <3 I read her all the messages from you today. Maybe all your prayers worked as today she managed to drink water on her own, and even had a little bit of youghurt, I was so happy <3
Every day, step by step staying in the moment <3

Dinnertip : Delisious fresh homemade pesto with wholemel pasta

I love pasta, I am absolutely no low carb person, and I guess I m a living proof that the right carbs wont make you gain weight:-)

Yesterday Fredrick and I made this super easy done it 20 minutes homemade pesto pasta, its so fresh and yummy:-). Have to share itwith you:

Serves two hungry people :
A fresh basil plant
A fresh parsley plant
150 g ruccola
Garlic
40 g Pine nuts
75 ml olive oil
40 g parmesan cheese
Salt, pepper
500 g wholemeal pasta

Cut the garlic in small pieces, add the basil leafs, parsley and ruccola all into a blender together with all the oil. Blend it until its all smooth. Then add the pine nuts and parmesan. Blend it for a few seconds, and let it rest in the fridge for a little while.
Boil the pasta al dente, and pour the water out when done. Add the pesto and stir it in together with the pasta, add salt and pepper as you prefer.
A little bit of parmesan on the top with some basil and maybe a few cashew nuts or pine nuts:-)
Bon apetito:-)

Today I have cried

The six last weeks have been a roller coaster.

More or less every day has been spent with grandma who is very very ill. It started with her breaking her hip six weeks ago. Since then we have been running between the hospital, the rehab center and then back to the hospital.

Since Sunday she cant eat, can hardly speak or sit up.

Every day for these six last weeks we have been trying to feed her, I have cleaned her dentures as the nurses had not done so, and she was in pain, and when I took them out they where filled with old food and denture glue,
they overdozed her on valium, giving her twice of what is recommanded as the highest doze for elderly and weak people.

When she was able to use the bathroom I ve been with her, helping her because again she would call the nurses but they woulnt come, sometimes she waited half an hour before they would help her to the bathroom. I ve cried, watching her get weaker and weaker.

Finally we managed to get her off the medication they wrongly gave her. That helped.
Sunday my mum insisted they moved her from rehab to the hospital, and they found that she had two clots, one in each lunge.

Yesterday I was there almost all day, and she opened up her eyes and whispered
" promise me to remember all the things I have tought you, and always be a good girl."
Then she continued, " I feel like its going the other way now, I cant fight this much longer".

Its so hard to not be able to do anything, she is the person who has always been there for me.

I grew up spending a lot of my childhood and teens living with her, as my stepdad made it pretty clear he did not want a step daughter.

My real dad, I have not seen him for many years or heard from him, even though he only lives ten minutes away.

Grandma, She was always there, and I felt so safe in her place. We went every where together, I would go with her to her work, we went to the parks, she would come with me to go horseriding, cook food for me, and we always walked as she never learnt how to drive.

We walked so many places. She loved to sing all these funny songs she had learnt during the war, and would teach them to me as we walked, and she always dressed me up and took pictures of me.
I guess she was my safe heaven, and I ve always said she is my best friend.

I m so blessed, today I have the best mum, a new wonderful stepdad, my amazing family, Fredrick, a life few could ever dream of, and with grandma living with my mum and stepdad for the last three years, we have been so close as few.

So even though she is 90 years old now, its so hard to watch her getting weaker and weaker, I love her so much. At the same time I m so grateful for having spent so much time together, its always been us <3

She is still here, and we all try our best to keep everything going. Trying my best to smile, keep studying for my exam, working out, writing my blog, and being there here for eachother and her. I guess that is the best thing to do <3
..however I am not someone who gives up, its incredible what you can do with will, and I ve told her to hold on, and fight, because neither of us are quitters... So we ll hold on as long as we can <3

This picture is from this Saturday, she managed to sit up then....

Mirell Victoria: Hvordan kle rødt?

Jeg har alltid tenkt at rødt er en farge jeg ikke kler. Faktisk kjøpte jeg mitt første røde plagg da jeg var i Milano i desember. Men nå, har jeg oppdatert garderoben ennå mer. Denne røde jakken fra Mango er jeg blitt så glad i :-)
Føler meg liksom litt freshere med en knallfarge uansett hvor trøtt jeg er.
Hadde på meg dette i dag; Jakke: Mango, Bukse:Mango, Sko:Mango, Veske: Mango

Noen tips:
Begynn med en liten rød detalj
F.eks en rød leppestift, et rødt skjerf, rød neglelakk

En rød bukse kan du lett dysse ned med en ensfarget genser eller skjorte

En rød veske, lover at du føler deg knall og får selvtillit

Prøv gjerne en litt mørkere rødnyanse første gang du skal ha en rød topp

Lykke til:-)

Todays superyammy proteinrich dinneridea: Red thai curry with wholemeal nudles

This dish is soooo tasty and good for you :-) Fredrick and I created it yesterday. We where starving after running for two hours, and wanted something healthy, filling, proteinrich and delisious. Here s the receipe :(serves two hungry atlets:-)

1 lime

Klart DU også kan få drømmekroppen!

Fredrick og jeg har hatt en fantastisk to timer lang løpetur i skogen ved Skagerrak løypa. Puuuh, kjente at vi hadde trent intervaller i går, men utrolig hvor motivert man blir av sol, høstfarger og verdens beste kjæreste. Ble naturlige intervaller, var noen ordentlige kneiker inne i mellom, men så herlig å kjenne kroppen jobbe!
1200 kalorier brent, og ordentlig god følelse:-) Så nå har vi kost oss med en kjempe god rød thai curry med fullkornsnudler, den ble så god at jeg må legge ut oppskrift til dere:-)
Hvordan har tirsdagen deres vært?
Kjempe klem fra oss
