PINK SATURDAY ON OCTOBER 3 2015

The last three years Mum, Kerstin, Sarah and I have been part of that day.
Selling homemade things and sending the money to The Breast cancer Foundation.

The past two years we`ve had our booth in Euro Spar, and that went well.
Then Euro Spar closed on December 27 2014, and I almost panicked right there.

We have been looking for another place to be, thinking maybe the Church or something.

Then the house magazine came out here in April, going out to 18.000 flats here in Aalborg.
With a note on the back, that said you could ask to use company premises for a social activity.

Mum and I talked it over, and I send an email to the chairperson of the housing.
Told about our course, the work we put into it, and what the money is for.



Two days later, I got a mail from her, that she would look into it, and a week ago, I got a note saying, we had the room from Friday to Sunday that weekend.

In addition, it is free, normally you pay €65 in rent for the place, but we get it rent free…. YAY.



We now have a big room, with lot of space, a coffee maker, lot of tables and a day extra to set everything up. We`ve talked with other people that make lovely things and they can get a table and sell their things, they just have to give 10% of their earnings to the Breast cancer Foundation through us.



Therefore, we are now expanding with books, handbags, more homemade things, stuffed animals, dolls, and nice secondhand donations.

Sometimes good things happens to you ♥

Wow! That is amazing! Is that the place at the corner, behind the bus station?

We should think about flyers or something to put up/give out so people know what's going on.

Will Sarah be back with us this year?

ohh, we could make cookies *mhmmm* :D

Yes it is, just across from Mums flat.
We think we´ll put everything up Friday, so we don´t have to stress Saturday.
I´ve thought about putting up flyers in the stairwells here and write about it in the House Magazine, tell people about the buses so they can come and look.
I´m afraid they are going to Spain again this year, in that week... but NO DOGS HERE !!!!!! EVER AGAIN!!!!!
Yay pink cupcakes and cookies ;) Great idea..

Aww, that's too bad :( But yay for no dogs :D I liked them during the day, but all the nightly activities they were up to... :D

We should check what turns out to be cheaper, printing flyers ourselves or ordering them. I just saw an ad for 1,000 flyers for about 20 euro, but other places do smaller quantities too.

Bake sale! :D I guess I should arrive a few days early? *g*

To bad, but maybe I can get her to make something.

About flyers, I was thinking we get all these brochures from the foundation along with balloons and scarfs. I would write time and date on them and put them up...

By all means arrive soon. I´m buying a new bed for you ^^

I'm sure she'll want to :)

Good idea :)
If we know if other people join us and what they offer, we can make a few extra flyers that give people an idea about what to find, maybe. :)

:D why are you buying a new bed!? I was fine with the one you had, unless it broke down while I was gone :D I could always take the floor with a mattress, now that there's no one running around trying to bite my face off :D

Me too.

Good idea, see how many will join us too.

The bed is because I have to borrow it from BRO and I don´t want that anymore.
I can get the same one and it is 45 Euro, and then Mum and I have a spare bed when we need one. Mom uses one when Rebecca and Benedicte spends the night, on on the couch and one on the bed.

You will probably share the living room with Stiles and Derek, or we can put them in the kitchen ;)

WAIT! YOU GOT THEM!? WHY HAVEN'T I SEEN THEM YET?!?!? :o

I thought that was your bed, then it makes sense to get your own. Between you and your mom, I'm sure you can put it to use :)

No no, I just get them in May, sorry..... But I´ll get you a pic as soon as they are at home ;)

Having out own, is the smartest thing.

Ah, well then :D I was afraid I missed the babies' arrival :D
Do you know a date yet?


Yeah, you'll be a lot more independent :)

I'll check for flights the week after next, okay? Then we can figure out when you want me there :D

Thank you sweetheart.
It is hard work, but I have a lot of wonderful friends and my Mum to help and get money for a good course.

Love you♥

Love you, too, darling!!

He did! We finally got to the post and gave it to him. I was confused at first, then when I got the mail (the day after you sent this comment) I found your lovely prezzie in the box!! He was thrilled to bits (and he is sharing one per day with his brother like a good boy!) Bless you, sweetie. And thank you! You will spoil him to death at this rate (but he is loving it :D!)

*Snuggles you happily*

Sorry I didn't get a chance to thank you proper the other day...life has been ten times more insane around here than usual!

*Loves you*

Thanks darling, we will all do our best and I have faith in this one.
A big room, we can serve coffee and invite other people to sell their stuff for only 10% of their sale for us.

Hugs
