Ronja made this little lantern at kindergarten last week, and I love it like that with a lit candle hanging from a tree. It’s really nice when the stuff she brings home from the kindergarten is actually something that you like to use and look at. This is certainly one of those things!
Sunday we had one of my old friends Fie and her boyfriend Kevin down for a visit. Mads made a wonderful dinner, and to top it off we had picked the ripe strawberries from the garden – or Mads had, that is, while Ronja and I went to pick up Fie and Kevin at the station in Køge. He actually picked an entire bowl full of strawberries from our tiny strawberry bed – and there are many to come. So we had strawberries with cream. And milk too, just to freshen the cream a bit. The strawberries are fantastic this year, they are not very big and they taste so sweet!
Yesterday, I went to visit my workplace and say hi to my colleagues. It’s in the centre of Copenhagen, and getting Frida and myself ready to go, packing the pram and all the babystuff, food for her and what ever else we need, makes it quite a hike to go there. We did have a really nice time there, and it was nice to see everybody. However, it takes 45 minutes each way by car, and yesterday it took a bit longer because there had been an accident on the motorway when we were going home, so the short visit basically took most of the day. I picked up Ronja on the way home, and a bit later Rikke from my mothers group came by to borrow the computer and have a chat and a cup of tea! They’re having a problem with their internet, so to make sure she doesn’t drop out of the internet society completely, I’m happy to have her use mine!
Last night Ronja slept terribly, and complained about having a very sore throat. I have it too, so I know what she’s talking about. I wanted to keep her home from kindergarten today, but when she got up, she said her throat wasn’t sore anymore, and she really wanted to go. And because it actually seemed to be true, I finally gave in. Frida has a cold and is dreadfully snotty. We should have been to psalm singing for mothers and babies at Køge Church today for the first time – I have had it recommended, and I thought I’d give it a go. But with Frida the way she is, we’ll have to wait till next week. (Sorry – the links are in Danish. To have the psalm singing elaborated a bit, go to the comments and see my answer to Sarah.)
