"Her name is mum"

Today I was at work, there was quite a lot of customers, and at one point I walked by a mum and her boy in the cart. I recognized the boy from one of the places Jonas has been in daycare, and said "Hi Lucas", he said hi, and I walked on. After I could hear him say "Mum, her name is mum", luckily she recognized me as well, and said "yes, that is Jonas' mum, did you recognize her?"

That comment really made me smile, and I'm sure the next customer got just a little bigger smile than usual. So my name is mum, how cute is that? 

Hope you had a great weekend:) I have tomorrow off, and I will spent it Christmas shopping with my mum.

Yet another finished project...

Sorry for have been MIA, but I seem to been way too busy for blogging the last week or so...I have today of, and now Jonas is napping, so I thought I would write a quick post.
So what is easier than snapping a picture with your phone of your last project? Well nothing, since I can't come up with anything else to blog about. So here you have my latest project, a blanket for Jonas.
So now he can cuddle up in his chair in front of the TV on the long winter nights... or should I say afternoons:) Just one problem, he doesn't really watch TV, or sit still for that long, but I'm sure he will like when he is older:)
Have a great day, I will continue mine with a cup of coffee and a few DIY Christmas projects!

10 years ago...

I started my job at the department store... well it was 10 years on Wednesday. So I guess it's about 10 years and a week ago I called my old boss (I had worked there after school, while studying), and asked her if she needed someone to help out at Christmas time, just until I got a real job...

10 years later I'm still there, though not in the same position any longer... I never thought I would be in the same place for that long, but the great colleagues are worth it. And I think the possibility of switching from one department to another, well that is probably why it doesn't feels like I had the same job for 10 years.

I was celebrated with breakfast with my own department and lots of gifts:) Sorry for the poor picture, my cell phone doesn't take that good pictures. I got the 3 books "Fifty Shades" which I have heard a lot about, but I haven't got around to reading yet (they just came out in Danish in the last couple of months). I had planned on putting them on my Christmas wish list, but that isn't necessary now:)

Here is to 10 more years, or should we say 5 years to start with, I do believe they also celebrate 15 years:) Have a great weekend everyone:)

A little annoyed...

The past 5 days have been quite busy... I was working from 8.30 am to 10.00 pm on Friday, Saturday morning Jonas and I had his swimming class, and at noon I went to work until 10 pm and again Sunday from noon till 10 pm. Monday morning the alarm went off at 5 am so I could get the last packing done before I had to leave for my 2 day course. I dropped Jonas of at daycare at 6.45 am and started the long 2½ hour drive...

I arrived at 9.15 am, and when I came down to the conference room where the course should be held there was only 1 other than me... and the 3 people teaching us... at 9.30 where we were suppose to start we were still just 2 people, so our teachers decided to wait a little to see if more people showed up... maybe some was stuck in traffic. A little after 10.00 am 3 people showed up, they had taken a ferry to get there, and one of the 4 motors on the ferry had broken down and caused a delay. This I can accept, I know they did what they could to get there on time, but a break down on the ferry... well you don't expect that. 

Meanwhile our teachers had started calling around, and it turned out a lot of people had forgotten etc. That's were I get annoyed... honestly how can you forget? I got the dates before my summer vacation, a bit early maybe, but I wrote in my calendar. A little over a month ago I received a mail with the assignment we had to do ahead of time, so if I had forgotten this would be a reminder.

The teachers didn't think we were enough people to continue... so we were sent home! That's where I get a bit annoyed, I had driven for 2½ hours after 3 long working days, only to drink 3 cups of coffee and make the 2½ hours drive back....

What a waste of time!

Sweet friends:)

On Tuesday night the girls from my knitting group were at my place, and we really enjoyed ourselves. Every month I look forward to the day we are meeting up.

This time one of the girls had a little surprise for us...

She made each of us a case for our crocheting pins, isn't it really cute? Now I just need fill it... so far I only have 2 crocheting pins, but now I have an excuse to get more:)

Have a great weekend everyone, I probably won't be blogging the next week, since I will be working all weekend, and Monday and Tuesday I will be away on course for work. It's a  bit weird having to be away from Jonas for 2 days, I'm going to miss his hugs and kisses in the morning... well not only in the morning the whole day, he loves to give kisses, but I guess I must fill up on them before leaving early Monday morning.
