Hey my lovelies…I haven’t been around for a looooong time, but here you will have a long post with pictures and everything…

On September 28th, SIL and the girls dropped of their 2 dogs for me to watch the next 8 days when they went on vacation on Mallorca. When I had agreed to take care of the dogs, BRO had promised that Mum could get his car to use the week they were gone…..then he went back on his promise, saying that his car would be damaged staying on the parking  place we have here….so I go two doge and no car……..UGH
That turned out to be a hard week with those two dogs….Them peeing inside 11 times the first night and then 9 times the next night and such.

The nice stuff starts on Wednesday October 1st.
My amazingly lovely  Kerstin (burned-phoenix) arrived in the airport at around 11.00
Mum and I picked her up on time and took the bus back home….
We had a great afternoon, and in the evening we went to The Light Ceremony in Budolfi Church,
There were speeches, hymns and the lightning of the lights….
So special and wonderful…

Thursday Mum had a doctor’s appointment and Kerstin and I, after taking our time with breakfast and a lot of talking, went shopping….

We bought Nadia’s sandwiches for dinner and bought one for Mum too, we delivered when we got home.
In the evening we made pink ribbons to give out on Saturday…

Friday we spend at home…..taking our time, tending to the dogs, having breakfast and watching “Midsomer Murders” on TV… we had pulled pork sandwiches for dinner and Kerstin made the most beautiful cards to sell on Saturday

Saturday was really busy…getting up early, walking dogs, getting breakfast and being in Euro Spar at 10.00. We sat up our booth with all our Breast cancer stuff and it turned out perfect.

The first two hours was a bit slow….some of the elderly women that know us came and bought something from us…..
We were giving out free pink ribbons outside and free breast cancer charms from the booth.
After 12.00 the sale got smoother…we sold pretty good, and all the lottery numbers for winning a Build a Bear got sold too.

In the end we made 1467 kr, and donated 1250 to the Breast Cancer Foundation...150kr more than last year…
We took a nap when we got home and had pizza for dinner, early time for bed with various stories to read.

Sunday the girls came around and we had the most amazing time with chocolate, drawings a lot of laughs and just being happy.
Thea was being shy in the beginning, but after they started playing, she was like a spider-monkey, never wanting to let Kerstin go again.

The dogs went home that day too and we were SO pleased about that (The dogs were the most untrained and horny dogs – not that my BRO or SIL had ever mentioned that!!)

Mum had asked us over for dinner and we got roasted potatoes, cauliflower and Hawaii roast pork, and liquorice ice-cream.
We had a great time, talking and laughing and enjoying ourselves

Monday was the day where Kerstin would leave to go home again….
We had a nice morning with breakfast and then watching a movie.
“The shelter” is an amazing and wonderful movie, highly recommended.

We then went shopping for some stuff Kerstin needed to bring home and around 4.00 we needed to catch the bus with Mum so we could get to the airport in time…

Hi sweetie! Thank you so much for the little package that just came in the post! That was such a lovely surprise! You are so sweet and kind to me!
The jewellery is gorgeous - as your jewellery always is! I love the earrings! The turquoise flower ones are so unusual! I'm wearing them right now! And the coins are really different too - I love them! I love the dangly ones and all the phone charms too! Thank you so so so so so much! You are so lovely to send me things like this! It really made my day!
*massive extra squishy tight hugs*

You´re welcome Honey.
Glad you like the earrings, it is my pleasure manking them to you.
The flowers, I think there are only two pairs in the world. The one you got and I made a pair for Mum too, but they are a bit diffrent, so yours are unique ;)
Hugs and kisses ♥♥

Thank you again for having me, darling! I had such a good time again :)

My mom was very happy to get more of the Knäckebrot :D And she said she'd make more of the small glas stuff to sell next year. Maybe some Christmas related things, too. I really liked her trees last year.

I hope you're all doing well! Did I say thank you for the pic you sent me already? I think i did, but I'm not sure right now.

I miss you!!!

Hehe, I will *G*

Yes, we did! We do every time I come up! :)

She still has a bunch left, maybe it'll be better when I tell you when it's gone *g*
But I'll take pictures, if we have one. There's a possibility that we'll be somewhere warm instead of here ;)

Lovely pics! It looks like you had a wonderful time. I hope you don't mind me stopping by and commenting - Kerstin linked to this post from her journal and as I've been bugging her to post pics of the trip I figured I should come and check these out. :)

Such a nice chance to get together and visit and do something special for cancer awareness too. I'm glad you guys do this every year. It's a lovely tradition. ♥

Hi there, no you are welcome anytime. I am so happy that you liked my pictures.
It is a great tradition and Kerstin is the sweetest girl you will ever meet. She means the world to me, my Mum and my two nieces.
I am so happy that she is taking part in Pink Saturday, she is so kind.
Welcome back anytime

Thank you! I shall visit again sometime. :)

Kerstin is amazing. I love her death and I'm envious that you two live close enough to visit. I've never met her in person, as I live in Canada. I hope someday we will meet. :)

I finally got to look at these (fixed internet connection, yay!) and aww, that is so awesome! The girls and Kerstin really make a good combo!
Hm, and those dogs are cute, but if they are untrained? Urgh no! *lol*
Yay for the money, that is awesome, I'm glad it went so well!
