Autumn in the garden

That’s the weather we have been having today. Mads and the girls woke me up with a birthday song – they had flowers for me, and they had prepared breakfast. Ronja gave me a beautiful drawing of me wearing a gorgeous, and very colourful dress.

34… wow.

Mads took the day off in order to work on the kitchen, and he had come a long way when I returned home from work. I love seeing the progress he’s making at the moment!

Flowers for my birthday

This evening we all walked to a nearby restaurant – the girls were a bit tired, but we still had a very nice time. Now I just finished a sewing project, and before long it’ll be bedtime.

What a wonderful day!

    Happy Birthday! Sounds like a wonderful day. 34 is not so bad, life just gets better and better when you have a family who loves you.

    Hi Astrid,
    I like to read you had such a good day. Hope the house and kitchen are coming together. (Saw the pictures on Flickr, what a tremendous lot of work!). Miss your stories, hope to hear more of you soon.
