Juleaften / Christmas Eve
Bortset fra at jeg ikke kan synge lige nu, hvilket er lidt traumatisk for mig. Der kommer bare ingen lyd når jeg når op i visse (ikke alt for høje) toner!
What a lovely Christmas Eve! The tree was as beautiful as ever, and the company was great. We were 5 people, old enough to wait a bit for the gifts, so we had a few extra songs around the tree.
Except that I can't sing right now, which is kind of traumatic. No sound comes out when I try singing certain (not too high) notes!
My brother got chickens this year, so I bought a chicken for their tree. It was on the tree! Those hens also lead to my very first time of eating someone I met. A hen had been slaughtered, but it tasted real good!
I got SO many presents! Really great yarn for a sweater for me. I'm looking forward to that! Just need to find out which pattern the yarn goes with.
Beautiful, hand-dyed yarn! Enough for a shawl in the most pretty colors.
Yummy Manos del Urugay yarn, also hand-dyed!
I got several knitting books. I wished for "Kærlighed på pinde", which I'll really get to use a lot! The other two were surprises, but both look really interesting with a lot of beautiful patterns.
There were magazines, too!
I got films!
And a lovely box of good, delicious American stuff. I seriously need to by a Christmas tree next year and get all the new decorations on it!
Last, but not least, I got golden cutlery! My niece wrote as a comment "You can be a little royal", the slogan of a Danish gossip magazine that I read every week. So true!
