MY AUTUMN VACATION WITH SARAH



Mum and I picked Sarah up Tuesday afternoon, we then had the opportunity to see Thea too and give the girls the presents we bought for them in Scotland.

On our way back here we went to the library so Sarah could see my exhibition, she thought it was way cool;)

We brought her bags up and then went shopping. She needed some chokolate milk and candy and I needed some things.
We played all afternoon, baked bread and made noodle soup for dinner and watched “The wizard of Oz” before bed.

Wednesday Sarah invited her grandparents to a Halloween party. We spend most of the day cooking, baking and decorating, but had time to watch “Cinderella” too.
We made a menu card and invented fancy which names for the food and drinks.
We even dressed up before my parents came.
They enjoyed being with Sarah and she enjoyed being with them.





We talked and ate and enjoyed being together and my Dad and Sarah arranged that we should go to the war museum Thursday. My Mum had to work so she could come though.
We had coffee and a cake Sarah had baked and then Mum helped me clean up.
When Sarah walked my parents halfway home I cleaned up the last bits and then Sarah and I played pc games until bed.

Thursday my Dad picked us up after he dropped Mum off at work and we went to the war museum.
Sarah loved it. You were allowed to play in the tanks and planes and there was a lot of things to look at.
After two hours we went to the marine museum, there was a submarine and a big bomber ship we could get into and Sarah just had to see and touch everything;)
My Dad old me that was one of the best days he’d ever had, feeling like a real granddad.











Later that evening Sarah and I had a very serious conversation.
She asked about my illness and I had to answer her truthfully. She had been doing a lot of thinking after she watched a cartoon where someone got cancer, and now she demanded the truth from me. I told her about the checkups and what happens at the hospital and that if I get sick again the tumour will be small this time.
She looked me in the eyes and said: if you get sick again, can they cure you?? And I said, yes….So you don’t die???, I had to say no.
When she was satisfied we had coffee and watched a danish operetta movie.

Friday was cold, rainy and windy.
We went outside to try and fly a kite, but it kept falling down and after 30 minutes we were cold and wet and gave up.



When the weather dried up a bit we went for groceries and home to watch another danish operetta movie.
Sarah loves those movies and musicals.
She even showed me that she could sing some of “The Queen of the Night’s aria from ”The Magic Flute”.
So I found if for her on YouTube and then we sang;)

We read some books and baked some more bread and Sarah made pizza for dinner.
We watched Sherlock Homes on tv, and then we made popcorn and watched ”The wizard of Oz” again, Sarah loved it.


Sarah turned my footstool into a chair;)


Saturday was quite short as her mother picked her up early.

But we had a lovely time and I enjoyed it as much as Sarah did.

Oh sweetie - this was such a lovely post..

I felt quite tearful reading it after you saying that your parent's enjoyed the time with Sarah so much.. This particularly brought a tear:

**My Dad told me that was one of the best days he’d ever had, feeling like a real granddad.**

Sarah made a wonderful witch.. Sounds like you had a magical time together.. cooking and playing and singing together.. And I believe that you should be as truthful as possible with her.. She needs to understand..You sound so close..

So glad you enjoyed your time so much ♥

Hugs
Julie

Sarah is a very thoughtful girl too and the thinks a lot about things that´s going on. Her parents never talk to her about those things, so when she askes me I have to be truthful.

It sounds like a wonderful time, Pippii. She is very bright I think from the questions she asked and she seems to have a serious side as well as liking to have fun. I'm so happy that you - and your parents - enjoyed your time with her. And, she cooks too! :)

btw - if you want me to make you an animated icon, send me the separate icons that you want combined or give me an idea of what you'd like.

Thanks buzzie.
Sarah is a very thoughtful little girl as well and her parents never talks to her about those things, so when she asks me I have to be truthful about it.....
LOL she is a great cook;)

Thanks for the offer I´ll send you some icons soon.

Oh I'm so happy for you you had quite a few happy days with Sarah. The pics are beautiful, and lol, the one with the masks... I almost fell out of my chair!
I bet the conversation with Sarah about cancer was difficult, but as they say, when kids are old enough to ask, you have to answer truefully.
LOVE&HUGS

Thank you sweetheart, we had such a great time.
The masks yeah - ever seen My Bloody Valentine^^
The talk was difficult but nessesary, as her parents never talk to her about stuff like that. She has been worried about my Dad when he was in the hospital and she is worried about me, because she knows that cancer is something you ccan die from. So she needed to know that the hospital looked after me and that I could be saved if it happens again.

♥Love you♥
