So here is an update on my life;)

Last Friday was Common Prayer Day and a holiday here. I felt really good and spend most day with Mum. We had some buns called “hveder” and coffee, and got to talk a lot. Then we watched a movie and I made dinner; pork chops with potatoes and vegetables in a sauce and made in the oven (apart from that the ovenproof dish I put it into broke into three pieces and put sauce all over the oven) it tasted delicious.
We had more coffee and talked some more so it was a nice day.

Sunday my Bro came by with the girls. He had managed to save some more from my dead harddisk, so I got my Bosnian files, letters and podfics back, and he found the sound file too, so now I can watch SPN;)
The girls stayed for five hours, and we had a lot of fun. Thea decided that my new nickname for her would be “monkey face”..she changes them once in a while, the last one was “baby girl”. We watched “Alvin 3”, then they called Mum and she came by with Nanna. We all had coffee and biscuits and played until my Bro picked them up. It gave me a chance to post “100 Things Challenge 011/100”


More Swooning

Monday I had the package to Bosnia to make. As I had gotten all my Bosnia files back the custom lists was a lot easier to make;) We have lost one of our families..The boys have not been reachable for almost a year now..they got a house and moved there to live with their Aunt and her son, but then they stopped writing. Without an address or a letter to say that they need our help, we are not able to help them…so now we pour all our love, money and energy into our little family, Mum, Dad and the two girls.
Mum delivered the package herself as she had to go babysit Rebecca and Benedicte right after, as my Sis as usual was not able to be there for her kids…A lot of the time I just think she wanted the girls to show off...well….

Tuesday Mum and I went on the hunt for a birthday present for Thea. It is here 5 years birthday on May 22nd , and she wants a Monster High boy doll (so he can kiss the girl that she have^^). There are not many Monster High doll available, but in the end we found a box with a boy and a girl, so we bought her that.
We went grocery shopping after.

Wednesday I spend at home betaing a chapter of an amazing story, and writing letters.

Thursday and Friday I was sick so I didn´t do that much….Mum had Nanna to the vet for a vaccination, it went well, but Nanna was sooo tired when they got back.

Yesterday Mum and I visited Crazy!Aunt and her boy-friend for coffee and dinner. That was really nice actually.

Today its “Mothers Day”, my Bro, SIL and the girls come to visit Mum, so I´ll be there for a couple of hours.


Probably a picture post later..

Hedder store bededag common prayers day, jeg har moret mig med at kalde den Big praying day ;)

Dejligt at din bror fik reddet noget mere fra din computer, og skønne billeder af tøserne :)

LOL jeg ved det faktisk ikke, jeg brugte Google oversæt;)
Tak, jeg håber du har en god "Mors dag" idag, tillykke.

Oh the swooning... good to see none of the girls are drama-queens! LOL

I am so glad that your brother managed to save some of your files!

I had never heard of store bededag until a couple of years ago - I think - when I saw it on a calendar you had made for me, and I could inform a danish neigbour of mine that "today is store bededag"... which he didn't know. :-) Hehe - Apparently, we had that in Norway too... once upon a time (I assume because we were in union with Denmark)... but it was moved to sunday before all saints day (allehelgensdag) in 1950, and is called "bots- og bededag" in the norwegian church year. Which, you know, is a day no one in Norway know about unless you happen to be in chuch that day.... I guess it is much more noticable in Denmark when it still is an extra day off work :-)

Drama-queens here? Nooooo;)
Me too, I would cry if I had lost it all.

Ohh..well I don´t know if the Church days are more pronounced in Denmark..but the publulation here takes the days off very cerious. Glad you could inlighten your neighbour;)

Next Thursday is Ascension Day, so that means a four day weekend for a lot of people as Friday is a natural day of too in shops, schools, offices and such.
I don´t thing we go to Church more, but we honour the old traditions, not just celebrate the days off.

1987 I was au pair in Norway, and I and the au pair next door celebrated Common Prayer Day and baked "hveder". The families we worked for, asked if they could celebrate with us, and have some of the baked goods;)

That's right - Thusrday is Kristi himmelfart..... Which means we lose a day off this year, since it falls on our national day. I have decided to skip that day all together this year. I don't have Amaya 17 mai this year, and I am just too exhausted after JIB still, so I have declined the offer to celebrate with by brother and his family.

Ohh I remember the lovely pictures of Amaya from last year, she was beautiful.
Take it easy get some rest, make yourself a treat for dinner and have a nice day on the 17th.
(I will probably put up a Happy 17th May here, hope you don´t mind getting it from a Dane;)

A few years ago, when Sarah was 8,she asked me to marry Jared,(as she knew I liked him back them too) and then she would move in with us and be our daughter...If I didn´t have those girls, I´ve had nothing.
Ohh I´m sorry if I missed that day, but anyhow; You are such an amazing Mother Susan, so you decerve to be celebrated both then and today.
