Being a bigsister suits Vilja well. Kornelius get kisses and hugs all day long. Today he even got to visit her princess bed and she read him a story.
Things are starting to shape up in the beach house. Heres the new (..well new to us but vintage) bookshelf.
I used to LOVE to eat from these plates as a child at my grandmas place. I found them so so beautiful. My sweet grandma told me I could have them some day when I grew up and mowed away from home :-)… here they are. I still love them. They are from england ‘wood and sons’ called ‘Irish rose’
Kornelius has grown real big real fast. Almost to big to be carried like this.
I had lunch with my fabulous bigbrother today and went back to the beach house. Kornelius and I travel by train. Michael and Vilja by car -it only has two seats. Goullash for dinner and pancakes for dessert. What a good day.
We are going to a christening today. Wrapped present and braided hair… B
The living room is almost done, floors, ceiling, walls, windows and a new terrasse door… Now for the fun (funnier) part. I wallpapered a wall yesterday and hung up a bookshelf.
Left the house for a few days in the city but am already looking very much forward to go back again.
This is Leif. He is Michaels moms husband. And he is one very skilled (retired) carpenter. Among lots of other things Leif has been helping out with the floors and the windows of the beach house. He has taught Michael many things though many years.
A help and knowledge like that is priceless. We are so grateful.
Remember this place I showed you a lifetime time ago? well, it’s a building next to the beach house and once a just a dirty old garage.
I haven’t told you this (maybe because I can’t really believe it’s true) …BUT, Michael has build me a beautiful workplace! -Wooden floors, blue windows, two doors, shelfs, tables and a play-corner for Vilja. More pictures coming up!
Today is a celebration. Floors in the living room is almost done -and it’s Michaels birthday. Hurray.
Cousin April is visiting. Michael made us chicken with leeks and mashed potatoes. Yummy.
Met up with a girlfriend in Copenhagen yesterday. Picked up Vilja and went back to the beach house. Vilja spends half the time at Anders place and the other half with me. 5 days at a time. I really look forward to be with her again when it’s time for me to pick her up. Although I have to admit it’s also nice to have quiet days with only the baby to take care of.
Okay things are a little bit chaotic around here… But they will eventually be fabulous. I’m sure. We had help in the house today. Michaels parents stopped by. They know a whole lot about house building.
I made peanut butter cookies.
Oh, how I’ve missed my camera. Left my battery-charger in the city last week… No camera -no blog posts. I’ve really missed both.
The house Michael and I are renovating is only a 1 minute walk from the most beautiful beach I’ve seen. We call it ‘the beach house’. Kornelius and I went for a walk today while Michael made window frames for the living room.
Ps: Found the recipe for those apple muffins here! (had no blueberries. so I used apples, cinnamon and pearl sugar on top instead)
