I do feel stress by being online most of the day. I use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram , mail and blog almost every day. I have education with Information Technology and I enjoy using it in different ways. But sometimes I feel that my social networks have control over my doings during my day. I often feel that I have to check out Facebook immediately after eating my dinner. In the weekends I “need” to check it out after breakfast. I feel that I miss out something if I don’t do it, but I seldom missed out something important by waiting. I still feel for checking every day and that is a feeling I don’t like. Another way the to turn on even more stress in life , is to use your smartphone for being online. You can get notified about movements your ”friends” do all the time. If your friends are as active as yourself ,you probably never get time off during a day . The youngsters in my house are using the Internet a lot more than I . In the beginning I laughed over their dependency. Now I`m sometimes rather frustrated. They are online most of the day, and sometimes they are online when they are using the toilet, makes dinner, eats dinner and in the break on TV. Watch them doing this is frustrating me. They don`t see or talk to other people who are physical around them and they often miss information we are giving to them. Grownups also use their mobile phones a lot when they are waiting for something. For example in the waiting room for the dentist or doctor, sitting in the car waiting for someone, on ferries, busses and other places we used to sit down and look at other people passing through, we meditated over things in life or read a magazine or a newspaper. The most of the population in the rich part of the world don’t do this anymore. We are sitting next to each other staring at our phone. Even at restaurants and cafes people are using their phone lot of the time. I find this rather rude and always ask my children to put it away when we are doing social things together. Rude because you don’t give attention to the persons sitting next to you ,and who might enjoy being with you. I think we all should be more offline and rather organize the online time to a few times during the day. Availability is often great but not 24/7.

We have always been an active family, but we realized after some years with teenagers in the house, that they spend more time being social with their friends on social networks , and less time being together physically . During a day they often talk with their friends on different social networks . Is this making them more social with their friends than we were? They “need to” talk to their friends daily and sometimes several times a day. We used to visit our friends , and stayed in their home for some hours and the next time we spoke was the next day. Now they are “online together “ several times a day instead of visiting each other physically. Children who don’t have friends in the neighborhood have more opportunities now for being social . They will always have someone to talk to by using social networks. With someone they might know from school ,but also other kids around the world .They probably don’t feel as lonely as some children did when we grow up without these opportunities.
How will the memories from their childhood be like? Memories from my childhood is often related to outdoor activities . When they become teenagers they don’t play outside as much as we did in the same age. My children have been doing most of the things I was doing as a child, because we have told them to . Until they are 10-11 years old they are playing outside almost like us. Climbing trees, go skating, skiing, bicycling, bath in the sea or in the river, picking flowers to parents and neighbors , building cottage in trees, making snow caves, have snowball fights and a lot of other things. We used our creativity and we got lot of fresh air. When they are getting older their friends become more and more important. They don’t find the same pleasure in playing outside. But can we say that were we more social with our friends, than our children are now ? Do we physical need to be together for being social? Who can decide that our childhood was better than our children`s childhood is too day?
Hopefully we have learn them to appreciate the nature and being with friends and family enjoying using the sea, the forest, the mountains , the garden and the river. When they are teenagers I like them to do both. Being with their online friends and being with family and friend in the real life. By doing both I hope they will continue having a good health also as grownups . A world without ICT too day is probably a world without development. And a world with too much ICT is a world without reality.

Dette måtte vi prøve ut etter å ha fått et tips om det av Renate Alice :) Selvsagt ble det alt for lite frost etter at vi ordnet dem, men selv om de ikke frøs som forventet så ble vi fornøyde med resultatet. Vi fylte konditorfarge i noen av dem , men jeg synes de blanke ble like så fine :)

Fikk fullstendig dilla på disse. Bestiller låsen på Etsy for de er kjempdyre her i landet.
De må syes på for hånd så litt "tjon" er det med dem, men det er verdt det. Jeg har brukt mønster
fra Bente Malm og forstørret det på de største.

Når jeg sitter foran PC skjermen så er jeg så heldig å ha en flott utsikt å hvile øynene på innimellom slagene. At man får veldig lyst til å gå ut er nå en annen sak.....for det er deilig å la seg friste til en luftetur. Frisk luft er ikke oppskrytt, iallefall ikke sjølufta på Vikna :)

Lissmor ble veldig fornøyd med denne. Hun er i utgangspunktet midtpunktet ,men ekstra stas når man glitrer selvsagt. Kunne tenkt meg en topp av slikt stoff i sølv selv. Så da må jeg vel rote frem Stoff og Stil katalogen igjen da...
