Election Day

On Sunday the 25th of May we have an election for the Europe Parliament in Denmark, and for the first time in the nearly 17 years that I have been allowed to vote I'm going to miss an election.

We will be in Turkey, but if I wanted I could have requested to vote ahead of time. Well I haven't, and I honestly don't care. I haven't looked into what we are voting about, and I don't care to look up information. That's a first for me, because I have always felt that you are not allowed to complain about any politics if you didn't do your duty and vote. 

I'm not political active, and I doubt I ever will be, but I feel it's my right to vote. But I guess this time around I won't be voting, so hopefully you won't hear me complaining about it down the road.

Well enough politics, I should be packing.

5 more days...

In just 5 short days we will leave for a week in Turkey:)

I'm quite excited, and it feel like it is very much needed to get away from work for a bit.

We will be in Alanya for a week, probably spending most of the time in the pool with Jonas, so hopefully I will get back with a tan!

I have been counting down on out board in the kitchen for the last month or so, and now it seems really close. The only obstacle left is packing, I hate packing, almost as much as I hate unpacking...

Have a great week everyone:)

Happy Mothers Day and the Eurovison

So almost 2 weeks away from blogging, can you believe one third of May has all ready gone! 
Well happy mothers day to all mothers out there. Jonas had made a mothers day gift for me at daycare, it was all wrapped when Frank picked him up on Friday, but since I was closing and not home until after bedtime, well I guess the wait was too long, and he unwrapped it for me:)
A little candlelight holder, and I love the card, which I think I will use as a bookmark. Today Jonas and I spent the day in Legoland.

 Frank had some work to catch up on, and Jonas and I needed to go to Legoland once more before our vacation, because if you come 3 times before June 1st you will get a free ticket for a friend. 

Last night we were watching the Eurovision, it was a bit exciting, since Denmark was hosting the show. Last time we hosted it was in 2001, back then the hosts kept rhyming, which was a bit embarrassing. This year... well they weren't rhyming, but they tried to be funny, making a song etc. and well again they failed. I honestly don't think we are capable of hosting such a big event.

My favorite song was the Netherlands, but unfortunately it only got 2nd place. I'm not sure what to think about the winner Conchita Wurst, the bearded lady. She/he sang very well, it was a good song, but I can't help thinking if she/he would have won if she didn't have a beard, and if it had "just" been a beautiful lady singing. Anyways congratulations to Conchita, and I hope Austria will be a better job hosting the Eurovision next year.
We ended up watching the Eurovision on a smaller channel, the main channel was showing it as usual, but their sister channel was showing it as well, and the commentators were 2 guys who has their own radio show. They are hilarious, and all their comments just made us laugh. They had been given a set of rules where they weren't allowed to talk politics, they weren't allowed to talk about their favorite etc. Well they broke a few rules, but hey they said what we all were thinking... who wouldn't comment on Ukraine and Russia given each other point?

Well hope you all had a great weekend.
