Gaver mm. / Gifts and more
En kagekone bliver jeg dog aldrig for gammel til, og vi huskede at skrige, da vi skar halsen over!
It was a really lovely birthday this Sunday, although I do think the new number in my age was more fun as a kid......
I never grow too old for a cake-lady, though, and we remembered to scream when cutting the throat! (No idea were this tradition comes from, but it's very Danish. Maybe the vikings?)
Lille Frk. T1 er gammel nok til at synes fødselsdage er virkelig sjove, og DET er jo herligt! Hun sov da de kom, og da hun vågnede nede i baggården gik jeg ned til hende. Da hun så vågnede rigtigt, var hendes første ord "Er det din fødselsdag?" Så pyt med at jeg bliver ældre, når nogen så nuttet kommer!
This girl came, and 8 more persons, all quite bigger than her, so my place got filled up.
Little Miss T1 is old enough to find birthdays very funny, and THAT is just great! She was asleep when arriving and slept in her pram in the backyard (another Danish tradition dated back to the 1950's). When she woke up, I went to pick her up. When really waking up, her first words were "Is it your birthday?" Who cares if I'm getting older, then, when someone this cute attends my party?
Tine (gad virkelig godt se hendes butik!) af min ældste niece. Tak!
Mums, det bliver nogle fantastiske strømper, det her!
There were gifts, too! This arrived the next day, though, but is pure luxury! Bought at Tine's place (I really would like to visit her shop!) by my oldest niece. Thank you!
This will turn into some amazing socks!
Der var også lovning på en gave som jeg så kan glæde mig til! Ikke dårligt!
Jeg fik også den nye Harry Potter bog, som jeg glæder mig meget til at læse.
I got beautiful, handmade earrings in great colors. I already started using them.
I also got a promise of a gift that I can look forward to! Not bad!
I also got the new Harry Potter book, which I'm looking forward to reading.
Mandag aften gik så med strikkebio! Det var lige så hyggeligt som altid, og "Bridget Jones' baby" var virkelig, virkelig sjov. Faktisk var der tidspunkter så sjove at man ikke kunne strikke af bare grin.
Men det gør vel ikke noget......
Finally, my nephew had been to a yarn shop! So I got yarn in the basic colors. A bit nerdy, perhaps. Looking forward to knitting in this yarn.
Monday evening was knitting at the movies. As much fun as always, and "Bridget Jones' baby" was really, really hilarious. Actually, some scenes were so much fun it was impossible to knit for laughing.
But that's okay, I guess........
