I have never been more busy! Summer in Denmark this year beautiful and sunny. Couldn’t have wished for better conditions to open our ice cream shop.
We have a good staff helping out. but still Michael and I have to run fast… and so we do :) the kids just tag along, Kornelius is crawling around like a tiny tornado and Vilja has great fun making new friends among our local costumers. She was once very shy. but that seems to be in the past.
There was a pj-party going on in our living room. When I woke up early this morning.
lots of mouths to feed in this house at the moment. Michaels son Mathias is here with a friend, Vilja is here and of course our staff in the circus plus Michael and I.
We’ve mowed the inside out. I need to be close to the shops all the time and able to hear the staff or Michael call me when something is up. So the kids and I have ‘mowed’ into and old carport behind the circus. We have had no time at all to sit still the last couple of days though. People want ice cream!
Viljas princess fascination is still going strong. She refuses to wear pants. Only skirts and dresses will do!
We eat most of our meals on a picnic blanket behind the circus. No time for homemade baking goods or time-consuming-cooking-experiments at the moment. I practice turbo cooking!
Kornelius keeps me up at night. doesn’t need much sleep that boy. It makes my head all woozy and sentimental. Thank you so much for all your kind words!
Thank you for your hellos in my previous post. I’m glad you are there :)
The first floor of the beach house still looks like this. At the moment we sleep in a room that will someday become part of a kitchen.
How are you out there. Away on vacation? …so quiet….
Linus (my brothers boy), Kornelius and my sisters two girls April and Penny. Vilja is camping with Anders at the moment. But hopefully this crazy bunch will be back visiting soon and she’ll join in on the fun.
Kornelius is afraid of NOTHING. And he is faster than the speed of sound… I wonder how things will be when he starts walking….
I finished up the sign for the shops yesterday. It’s a reuse of the good old ‘Brinja-sign’ from my shop in Copenhagen. The iron bars holding the awning in front of the circus van is a reuse as well. They used to function as clothes racks in the shop. I love to reuse and give old things new life. and I love that many of the materials we’ve used building the whole circus already has a history.
My favorite brother in the whole wide world is here. He (and family) has rented a vacation house near by the beach house for a while. I don’t know who is more ecstatic about it Vilja or I. She can’t wait for cousin Linus to come back and play tomorrow.
We have had two rainy days. Spend them refilling the refrigerators. Hanging up laps and today we’ve bought a popcorn machine.
Our new business has a facebook page now! -and a name! ‘CIRKUS IS’ join us if you want. we love company :) .
The picture is from a local newspaper (30 years old) a thoughtful costumer of ours brought it by the shop yesterday for us to see… Isn’t it great? A floating café by ‘Stilinge Strand’ I love it. Maybe a relaunch next year? hmmm :)
