Let’s start with the pictures.
October 31st, Halloween…we don´t really celebrate Halloween in Denmark, more All Hallows Eve.
But Thea´s kindergarten had a Halloween party that day, and as Thea was to come and stay here for a couple of hours – “Alone Aunty Annette, I come to stay ALONE” (squeezes that only small dogs could hear) – she came in costume as Draculaura ;)
She was so cute…we had popcorn and blue sodas (which brew) and watched “Tom and Jerry’s Halloween story”

Monday 5th November Mum and I went to Mums Diabetics nurse and got Flu shots. If you have a cronic decease you can get the vaccination for free.
She also made an appointment for me the following Monday, with a female doctor, as I am suffering from “female problems”.

Wednesday 7th we delivered a package for Bosnia. The Mum Samira had wrote us and asked for winter boots, socks and underwear. So we had bought a big pile of that, and including some candy, chocolate and cookies ;)
We had a letter for the driver, Faruk, in Bosnian, telling him thank you for delivering our packages on time and seeing him again in January. He was really touched and even kisses us;)

Thursday 8th was a big day for Mum. She got a visit from her pen pal!!
It is a very nice lady called Käthe. She writes a blog here in Denmark about her life and a very special project she has started on her own. She designs and knit dolls clothes and then donates a Baby Doll with clothes and a crib to Children Hospitals around Denmark.
This time it was a donation to a Women’s Crisis Centre here in Aalborg, so she arranged that she and her friend – a woman with a car – could come visit Mum and me.
So we cleaned and cooked and Mum was so happy when her friend showed up. Mum has been reading her blog for years, donating money for the project, and making a personal friend in Käthe.
When they arrived they had coffee and we talked for a while, it was so easy to talk to them and I was so pleased for Mum.
For dinner we had made Grilled Chicken Breast, oven baked potatoes, grilled vegetables, broccoli salad and ruccula leaves with mandarins, peppers and tomatoes. I´ve made a forest berries& muesli cake for dessert.

Mum had such a great time (I did too, but this was not about me). It was so easy for her to talk to Käthe and her friend Tine, and we just talked and ate and enjoyed ourselves.
Mum had two dolls for Käthe, not for the project, but two Danish dolls, that Käthe had looked for the past years. She had then as a kid and had lost them 20 years ago. Mum had the dolls, but they were just in the cupboard so she wanted Käthe to have them…there was a lot of thanks and crying involved.
We had a lovely evening and then they had to leave, going to a hotel in another town, due to Tines work the next day.

Saturday the 10th was “Mortens Aften” (St. Martins evening), here in Denmark. We call him St. Morten.
St Martin was a priest whom was made a bishop.
He did not want to be and tried to hide in a chicken run. But all the ducks and geese, made a lot of noise and Morten was found and made a bishop.
So every year we kill and eat the traitorous ducks and geese for what they did to Morten...

Mum cooked and we had duck, white and green potatoes, red cabbage and gravy.
We had a great evening, just the two of us.

Monday 12th I had an appointment with the doctor. I’ll spare you all the gruesome details here, and just say I have had “female problems” for the past couple of months.
The doctor gave me some nice blue pills to stop the bleeding that has been going on for seven weeks, making me more and more miserable. She also send me to a gynaecologist to have some tests run on my “inner female parts”
That will be the 14th of December.

The rest of that week I spend between sleeping, A LOT, making Christmas lists and presents, and reading books on my Kindle.

Well on Sunday I had a very intellectual conversation with Sarah over the phone, due to her reading “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide” in School. She brought it home for the weekend to finish it and announced it her new favourite book!
I found my copy, a very nice one in green leather binding with gold print, and we compared the books. Mine is more a “grown up” copy, but somehow Sarah managed to sneakily make me turn my copy over to her…She’ll be collecting it on Friday ;)

There is a book that I will recommend for you to read.
I don´t really do that a lot, but this is a book that really deserves to be read by everybody.

It is called “Kismetology” and is written by the lovely Jaimie Admans aka honeyjojames

16001286

It is a really funny book about the 29 year old Mackenzie, that tries to set her Mum up on blind dates, to get her and her irritating little dog of off her back. The twist is that Mac first has to have a date with the older guys she finds, to make sure they are right for her Mum.
That makes for some very laughable situations.
If you like “Bridget Jones” and “Shopaholic” you will love this book to;)

There will be an update on Crazy!Aunt later, but I think this was more important;)

Love you♥

Thea looks lovely. And not at all scary. ;) And where was Sarah?

The book sounds interesting. And I just love the cover, the soft colors especially. I must admit that I am one of those people who do judge books by their covers. It just has to catch my attention. And the girl/lady is only a year older than me. That is... Well, she's got all my respect there.

For seven weeks?! Goodness, I'm dying after the seventh day. Good luck on the 14th. I really hope it's nothing serious.

Hey, I've been sleeping a lot, too. It's the complete lack of sunshine here, I'm exhausted for no reason.

Take care over there, the all of you! :)
*hugs*

Yeah yikes, my periods have been messed up sinse the Chemo, but now it is getting to annoying...
Thanks♥

Take care you too♥

Jeg var så glad for at Kâthe kom og besøgte mor. De har været online venner i flere år, og hjulpet og støttet hinanden...ligesom vi gør her på LJ.

Eeekkkk, jeg troede også mine problemer var ovre, men så kom de tilbage, 10 gange mere irriterende.....
