June was pretty booked with different activities. Here comes a re-cap.....
At the start of June we had our yearly family day with Kristian´s family. It started at Kristian´s brother´s home with breakfast.
Kristian with his mum and siblings. The oldest at the right hand side - Hanne, then Anders, Signe, (Mum) Kristian, Søren and Peter. His mum deserves a medal!! haha
The weather was lovely and we were able to eat our lunch outside - picnic style. We visited the Cold War museum and spent an hour underground seeing the Head Quarters. All very interesting (mostly for the men I think!)
We ended the day with a walk and some ice cream at this beauitful place. It is always lovely to hang out with Kristian´s family.
Another big event in June was our neighbour´s daughter´s Graduation. We were all invited to her Graduation party. Once again the weather was lovely and just as well, as we were holding the party in the garden.
We helped Laura and Mia get things ready. I made a pavlova which tasted great!!!(even if I say so myself!! haha but you just never know with the things I make, they could be good, but they could also be terrible! haha)
The day after the Graduation we were invited to our friend
Pernille´s 50th Birthday. (Strange how I have such old friends!! :-) Once again it was a garden party and the weather was just beautiful.
We had a lovely afternoon there.
The good weather continued and so we had a spontanous evening out with our friend´s Jette and Filip and their two kids. We went and got ice cream at this really popular place. We had to wait in line but it was soooo worth it.
We took the bed out of Andrew´s old room and made it into an office and music room. I am sooo happy with the result.
If Andrew comes to stay we just pop a mattress on the floor:-)
One of my colleagues was retiring and so we who worked closely with him, organised a surprise party for him. We decorated the school bus and went to his home and picked him up. It was then back to school for breakfast, a few speeches and a song written for him.
In the afternoon we had a party for him with all the teachers from the school. I think he had a great day. We certainly did our best to give him a good send of into the life of a pensioner.
The last weekend of June and Kristian was away on a go-kart weekend so I arranged a girls night here. Three of my girlfriends came for dinner and then we watched La La Land. We had a great night together - loads of chatter and laughter!
There was also biking with the old people, a dinner date with my friend´s Genny and Brit and a visit to the hospital to see my friend Audry who was having a hip replaced.
On 4th July we usually hold Independence Day with my friend and neighbour Laura, as she is American. This year we decided to go to a 50´s diner that Kristian had taken me to a while back. We decided though that we wanted to have a bit of fun, so we decided to dress up in 50´s clothes. What fun we had - not so our daughers!! haha
We didn´t think there would be many people at the place on a Tuesday evening at the start of July! How wrong we were!! haha It was packed! Good job we had booked a table.
The Burgers, Milkshakes and Fries were delicious
Laura had invited her Canadian friend and two daughters, and also another one of our Danish friends, we had such a great night together!
So that was pretty much life before our holidays. Work was busy for both Kristian and I and so we were really looking forward to getting away on holiday. But more about that in the next post......
