And it is my entire fault.

The past month I think has been so busy with RL and family problems that I haven’t been able to pay you all the attention you deserve….

Family first;

My sister has been acting up again. She talked Mum into come a look after the girls from the 19th to the 20th, as she had to leave for work at six on the 20th…Mum said yes as long as she got picked up and dropped of, and that she could bring the dogs…so Sis agreed….
Mum called Friday at midday. She had woken the girls and gotten them fed and off to school, that was the positive thing…
On Thursday SIS has flipped out and screamed at her three times, because the dogs had peed on the floor (it was easy to clean op with paper towels), so she had to keep the dogs on a leach all the time.
Then Mum had to sleep on an air mattress on the floor. Knowing she is 63 and had major stomach surgery (bowel cancer) a year ago, and has trouble getting up and down, I got sooo angry for that.
Mum was glad she could spend time with Rebecca and Benedicte, but told Sis that the next time she could take the girls out of school for a day and they could sleep over at Mums.

Crazy!Aunt has been acting out too…a couple of weeks ago, Mum and I went to visit her and her boyfriend, - he is amazing and picked us up and drove us home in the afternoon -.
It started out cosy enough, we sat in the garden and had coffee and later went shopping in the small village they live in.
When we came back, we had homemade burgers and talk and then she started…she had a breast cancer operation last year, with a tumour on 3mm…but as far as she knows, it is something to moan and bitch about to Mum every day. She wants the hospital to be there for her 24/7, and bully the hospital staff…..we tried to explain to her that she was fine when the doctor told her there was nothing wrong, but she doesn’t listen at all…..
My head was spinning when we got home….

Mum; she had an appointment for a scan at the hospital last Friday, but it went well and no tumours or anything showed up…so now she has three years before she has to come back. So she is well and great♥

Real Life:

October is coming up and that means Breast Cancer Month….

Lyserød Lørdag 01

That also means Pink Saturday, which is the 5th this year.
Last year was the first time we participated with a sales booth in the middle of Aalborg and we did well, so we decided last year, we wanted to participate this year too.

So we’ve spent the last year making all our jewellery, knitted and croquet things and a lot of other things.

Then when we came to sign on, we got a smack in the face. Turns out, this year you have to pay come to 135Euro for a booth!!!!!
That took the spirit out of us for a couple of weeks…
But Mum and I got an idea. We have two local grocery shops just across from the street from where Mum and I live.

So we went to the one where we know people and found the manager. We explained our situation and that the money would go the Cancer Foundation and what we would sell. And the lovely man told us, that we could have a place in the front of the store, where there are two tables, and is placed just where people are getting in and out.

So we have worked like mad to get our things ready, finding two “Build A Bear” toys for a lottery, making all kind of pink stuff and trying to get a few donations. (I haven’t heard anything from the two I´ve contacted, but I have faith)


So next week will be even busier, but great things will happen; I’ll have some lovely guests next week too.

On Wednesday my wonderful and lovely friend Kerstin burned_phoenix will come to Aalborg and make my life so much better, and she’ll stay until Sunday.

As a bonus in my life, the amazing Sissi dreamers_dh will visit from Thursday to Friday.

So the next week will pretty much be like this:

Monday; Our Cathedral Budolfi, has “the Candle Light Evening” again this year, so there Mum and I will be at 7pm.

1oktober2012 02

Tuesday; Mostly cleaning and freaking about not being able to have guests;)

Wednesday; Kerstin YAYYY….loads of talking and maybe some “Boys With Their Shirts Off”

1oktober2012 01
Mum and Kerstin at Church last year

Thursday; Sissi YAYYY…probably go and see the Church across the street and Dinner at Mums.

Friday; Museum and Mall....and Sissi will leave us

Saturday; Pink Saturday,so Sarah will get here early, we will make a killer sale for “The Breast Cancer Foundation”, fun and dinner and more fun. Sarah will stay until Saturday.

Sunday; Thea will arrive early to spend time with Kerstin, and at some point Kerstin will leave and we will send her off as best we can...

So….I will probably be absent the next week, but I promise to take notes and pictures so you will all get some nice posts about the perfect week that will come

I'm not surprised they are charging for tables because of course THEY have to make money too, but I'm glad you found an alternative.

I'm so sorry to hear about everything going on with your family, but glad the check with your mom went well :-)

Sounds like you are having a lot of fun and keeping busy. Have fun with Kerstin and Sissi (say hi to Sissi for me :-)). Can't wait to see the pictures and hear all about it!

I was surprised, as last year it was free. and we bring our own handemade stuff and our time to support a worthy thing..
But I´m sure standing in the grocery store will be grand...we know a LOT of the people that shop there..so we hope they will support us;)

Mum is glad too..
Ohhhh I´ll be sure to say hi to Sissi from you. I´m really excided to meet her, I don´t even know what she looks like;)

Trust me, there will be loads of pictures and posts from me^^

Well hopefully they aren't keeping the money for themselves but are donating at least some of it. It is a good way for you to support a worthy cause.

I hope they do too, Good LUCK!

I don't know what Sissi looks like either! We've exchanged Christmas cards for a few years but we've never met.

Awesome. I look forward to them!

I am absolutely dead on my feet right now. I can't even see straight anymore, but I just had to come read your entry! :)

I am so very much looking forward to seeing you guys again! *clings*

MEEP... you need to relax, so you don´t sleep the entire vacation..
Mum, Sarah, Thea and I, are so looking forward to get you here and cuddle and love you and spoil you for five days♥

(What kind of youghurt do you eat? I´ve bought some of the cheerios and those chokolate things)

♥Thank you♥

Sorry to hear your family are acting up again! It must be so stressful, for you and your mum! Very glad to hear that her scan was clear though! Please send her my love and tell her I'm so pleased that she's had good news!

It sounds like things will work out with your table too! Best of luck with it, and I hope you have a wonderful time with all your guests! *hugs*

Thank you so much honey, I´ll be sure to tell Mum..she has read six chapters of "Kismeology" and she love it, she asked for more chapters today;)
I hope everything will work out with the guests and the arrangement on Saturday...but I have faith;)
♥ Kisses♥
Sep. 30th, 2013 11:51 pm (UTC)
Aww, tell her thank you so much! I'm really glad she's enjoying it! Have been working on paperbacks this week!
Sep. 30th, 2013 04:45 am (UTC)
That's kinda harsh to charge that much money to rent a table for a charity sale?! I'm glad you got it worked out though - I hope you'll sell loads of stuff, the pics look amazing!
Sep. 30th, 2013 04:22 pm (UTC)
I really was in chok when I heard, but we are lucky our grocery store will support us,
Thanks hon, if we don´t sell anythigng, I will probably make you guys buy it;)
Sep. 30th, 2013 05:03 am (UTC)
Sounds like mostly good things - next week anyway! I'm sorry your sister and aunt had to be a pain, but all the things next week will help make up for it! Enjoy, and all the best with the sales! ;-)

Sounds like you have a lovely week planned. I cant wait to hear how Pink Saturday goes, I'm sure you will sell loys of things as they are all amazing.

Sorry to hear about your family troubles, it sounds like Sis is taking advantage a bit by doing that, plus she knows the condition your mum is in so she shouldn't expect her to do that. I understand how you felt about your mum sleeping on an air mattress, I know how infuriating it can be when you know someone has trouble trying to stand up.

I hope you are all well hun,
love from,
Shaun and family xXx

Hi Hon,
I wish you good luck for your pink saturday and I'm glad you have found a way to sell your lovely stuff. *I cross my fingers for lots of customers*
Yay for Gitte and the good news!!! Give her my best wishes.
I´m sorry that you have trouble with your sis and aunt.
Have lots of fun and enjoy your time with your vacation guests.
But first get some rest and relax so you`re fit and fresh for them. ;)
Big tight hugs!
Oct. 1st, 2013 09:12 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry I couldn't be around myself. I'm so very angry for what your sister did to your mum! This is shameful!!! And there is nothing to say about your aunt, some people just like to be the center of the world.
I'm so happy to know that everything went well for your mum and that you'll be able to sell your items for the Pink color ;) I just can't believe they are asking people to actually pay in order to help for such a great cause!
Enjoy your te with your friends and the girls :))))

Greetings sweetie. I am truly sorry about your real life struggles. *hugs* I am here if you need to talk. You can send me a message on Facebook or on here anytime you want to. I love all your hard work for the awareness. Can I have a button or an angel for supporting please? :D
