As you all know by now, I had a visitor from Germany all of last week...
And what a week…burned_phoenix AKA Kerstin from now on, is the sweetest house guest…and has the most amazing tattoo;)

Mum and I picked her up at the airport Saturday September 29th, at 11, 20…
She just came out there with her suitcase and big hugs for both of us..and from then on, it was a really blast having her here….

We went home and got her settled in and the cats had a new favourite…From the time she stepped foot in my flat the 29th and until she left on Saturday 6th, Sammy and Jensen had eyes for no one but her.
We went shopping and decided for lasagne for dinner...that is another thing; it is so easy to have her as a guest...She doesn’t crave anything and goes along with what you say or do.
We ate lasagne before I turned into a bad host! There was a Danish TV show on TV I wanted to watch and I asked it that was ok with her..It was!! I think we went to bed rather early after that, reading before sleeping.

Sunday was a fun day…we had breakfast and talked for hours...and suddenly we had to hurry as Mum, Sarah and Thea was arriving.
We made fritters (or Berliners or Æbleskiver) with jam and icing sugar…
At first Thea got really shy and went to hide in my bedroom, and had her treats served there...

But as she found out what a blast the rest of us had, she came and joined us….Kerstin had brought presents for all of us; I got rubber ducks!, a beautiful fairy-drawing that Kerstin made and a lovely scarf and chocolate. The girls got a gorgeous home-drawing each and sweets and a drawing kit. Mum got a beautiful b/w photograph, a scarf and chocolate.
The four of us also got homemade cloth frogs that Kerstin had made. That girl is really talented.

Kerstin with Jensen and the girls

We spend a wonderful afternoon together, and when my BRO picked up the girls we had to say an extra goodbye to Sarah. She was going to Berlin the next day on a class trip for 5 days.
Later we had the left over lasagne and had an early night.

Monday was spend with us spending the morning over breakfast and talking until noon…it was so easy for us, just talking and talking..and then we needed showers.)
After that we started watching a new TV show…well new for me…Teen Wolf! and I so NOT need a new fandom, but I got hooked from the first episode…OMG I love Stiles ;)
We watched a few episodes and then we had to get ready for going out.
That evening the Church had a Light ceremony, for Breast Cancer Victims, organized by our local Cancer Foundation.

It was at seven, so Mum, Kerstin and I took the bus at six and got a nice place to sit in the front of the Church.

Kerstin and Mum at the Church

It started with a few people telling their cancer stories, then the Priest spoke about Belief, Trust and Fight against the cancer and we sang a few hymns. Then we all got a candle to light and place before the Altar.

Lights in front of the Altar

As a closing there was a choir singing a few songs and then it was over. You then could get coffee, but we decided to go home instead.

Tuesday we went for a car trip around the small villages in the vicinity of Aalborg. We went to Egense, where you can see the Limfjord that runs through Aalborg and sort of divides Denmark in two.

Mum treated us to hotdogs and fries and we eat and talked.
We took some pictures and went on.

We went to the beach, Kattegat, making sure that Kerstin got to see some sand and water ;)

On the way home Mum showed us where she lived as a youngster on a rabbit farm, with 3000 rabbits that got sold for food to France and Italy.
It was a nice day and the weather behaved for us.
We made a salad from what I had in the house for dinner, and watched more Teen Wolf;)
