Christmas days in our home has been truly wonderful but not quite as quiet and relaxed as I had hoped for. Many unfortunate bumps on the way like; a winter flu, a computer breakdown, unexpected shifts in the shop, oh and a dishwasher breakdown including a mild flood in our kitchen.
Things don’t always work out the way you want them to huh?
Anyway, we had a perfect Christmas ewe party, Vilja is just happy happy happy and we still have a visit to my parents place at Samsø to come, YAY.
One of my absolute favourite things is my job, even though Anders always tells me not to bring work home, and I try not to (I have a problem, I just cant stop) it sometimes happens anyway. Last weekend a bunch of new Brinja dresses arrived which meant a whole lot of organising.
Combined with a brilliant red wine and some cheese/sausage/olive-snacks, it was a perfect way to spend a Saturday night!
Ps: The dresses are for this winter and in my humble opinion they are pretty darn good. I’ll get back to you on that!
Anders made a pie yesterday. Broccoli, salmon, asparaguses and garlic. Uhm!
…and a really colourful meal. Mashed potatoes, parmesan cheese, corn, peas and shrimps.
April right, Vilja left.
Vilja is at her grandparents and Anders and I are adjusting to the rare quietness of being home with no plans and no Vilja around. Next up; a Woody Allan movie!
…a visit to the zoo, lots of book reading, radio listening, colourful snacks and reorganising the wardrobe.
Thank you for your sweet comments in my previous post (and in general)
At aunt Sigga, uncle Mikkel and Cousin Aprils place.
Oh and just to stay in the wedding-mode for a little bit longer; Anders and I have been married for 4 years today!!!
From my parents garden: tomatoes, beetroot, parsley, thyme, salvia, squash, tarragon and 12 freshly laid eggs.
From the local dairy : cheese and cream.
And fanallly: two beautiful hand knitted (by ‘Granny O’) wool jackets, a green dress and a vest for Vilja and cousin April.
I should really go to Samsø more often don’t you think?
Vilja sure likes her hats. Here she is eating breakfast wearing a silver rain hat…
