Last night after the children had been put to sleep, I was out running. I had the most beautiful scenery – the dark forest against a lavender sky, with shiny pink clouds coloured by the setting sun. I wish I could show you pictures, but my description will have to do. I had a wonderful run, though – the best yet.
Last time I was out running, was last Friday. After I posted pictures of my route to my blog that Friday night, I went to bed. And then I fell ill. I won’t go into details, just say that I spent the entire Saturday in my bed. My mother was coming Sunday, and we had so many plans for that Saturday of things that we wanted to get done – instead Mads looked after the girls while he cleaned the house, did the shopping, and patted me on the head once in a while. What an amazing guy I’ve got me!
So when my mother arrived on Sunday, I can’t say I was totally fit, but at least I wasn’t sick anymore. We had some really nice days, going to the ZOO, to Køge (the nearest commercial town), and just relaxing at home. The Copenhagen ZOO is wonderful – they just opened a new enclosure for the elephants, including a house that was designed by Norman Foster and it is quite stunning. The elephants have so much space there – you can actually tell that they are happy!
I have a short note on Frida, who is taking a few leaps at the moment. She can actually crawl now. When she needs to get from A to B in a hurry, her old method (pulling and pushing her way around) is still the quickest, but she’s experimenting a lot with crawling. She also had her two upper front teeth a few days ago, so she’s chewing on everything she can get in her mouth.
Our summer vacation starts today – we haven’t got anything planned, except that we’re going to take a trip to Amsterdam to visit my brother and his wife – other than that we’ll probably start planning today… 😉
