First; Pictures from the Paul Potts concert Mum and I attended on Sunday 15th.

Ok – On Saturday21, I got a new Television. 40 inches and flat screen... Amazing.

The one I had was 20 years old and I could nog get any new channels on it – I had like 13 channels, paying for 40 or something.
The guy that came with the new one, had never seen a TV like mine before ;)
I also got a cash loan along with the TV, so I had some money for Christmas and
other stuff.
I am in debt until 2022, but well…

Monday, Mum and I went to the library with the yearly Christmas presents for the “children without Christmas”. We had two big black sacks with toys, books and dvd`s for them.
We came across a one-week shop that collected money for Africa, so Mum bought a handmade bag and me two necklaces made of paper. Therefore, that was a little help there too.

Tuesday Mum and I went to the annual Cancer Christmas Concert.
This year it was the Danish Trumpet Player, Per Nielsen. (We heard him 3 years ago)
It was amazing. (I know the pictures aren`t great, but they are mine)

Wednesday we did nothing ;)

Thursday 26th was Dads 71 birthday so Mum and I went to the cemetery with flowers and rosemary.

We walked through the cemetery and through the park to the bus station. On the way, I met a former choir member. It was so nice meeting her again. I haven`t been in the choir for 8 years and she remembered me.
It was so nice meeting her.

When I got home, there were a parcel waiting for me.
New clothes, for the first time in years and years. I´ve ordered it from a homepage that had big sizes and all of it fit me ♥

Friday 27 was Christmas Night in Aalborg.
Mum and I took Rebecca and Benedicte for all the Christmas joy.
SIS got the girls` Advent Presents from both Mum and me. The girls got some pocket money from both Mum and me, and they bought presents and sweets.
I bought some Christmas presents too, and Mum treated us all for burgers and fries in Burger King.
It was a great evening.

Yesterday, Saturday, The scouts had the yearly Christmas Market in the Church.
So again, Mum and I went to support them. We bought some presents and bought some “hearts” that earned us a gift for every heart. So helping there too…
In the afternoon, BRO arrived to get us out for coffee and dinner with SIL and the girls too. Mum and I brought the girls` Advents presents.
I spend my time divided between Sarah and Thea; talking to Sarah about love life and books and theatre, and with Thea watching a Monster High movie, where she could curl up in my lap and entwine our fingers and just getting my attention.

It was a nice time.

Today was the first Sunday in Advent: I went to Mums and we had presents for each other.
I got two Christmas gnomes that I had wished for. I gave Mum a blue cardigan and a necklace.
Then we had coffee and watched three episodes of SPN season 9...
A good day…

Lovely pics, as always, sweetie! All the girls are looking so grown up! I love Sarah's fluffy jumper in that last pic! Your new clothes look very pretty! It's great when you find things that fit, I always struggle to find things too! *hugs*

Thank you Hon.
The girls grow up so fast;)
Ohhh, yes it is nice, I´ll let her know.
It is so great finding clothes that fit and are fairly cheep too.
It is a website named Zalando, I don´t know if you can get it in the UK.

You are an amazing human beeing!
I can't believe how often you think of others though you have enough problems for yourself but still: You give and give and it's not to get something in return but just to help.
That makes you very special and I'm proud to know you *hugs*

Is it a Tradition in Denmark to give each other gifts on Advent Sundays? Or is this just something you and Gitte do?

You are way to kind.

I´m really glad that you know it is not to get something back. Some people ask me, what do I get in return, and when I tell them I get the joy of helping others, they look at me as if I am crazy.

Thank you so much for your kind words honey♥

I think it has been tradition in Denmark for about 80 years.
Mum and I give the four girls and eachother, so it we have a budget. € 5-6 a gift, some a little cheeper if you can get it on sale ;)

Big hugs to you♥♥
