Goodbye Holland! (for a while...)

It was one hell of a week, but we made it. The rats are staying with my friend Kato (any rat vs bunny fights happening yet?? ;), the suitcases are packed & I have scheduled some posts to keep this blog going while I’m off laying on beaches, visiting the White House and standing on the Empire State Building!!!

US, here we come! :) Back on 18/05/10.

Bye Bibi!!

You were a great pet & made us laugh every day! Too bad you couldn't stay longer...

Hello Earthlings!

Apologies for the lack of blogging these past few weeks. With 7 days to go until my 3,5 week trip to the US I’ve been super busy and kind of stressed out. I have so much to do before next Saturday!!! O_o

I could really use a laugh to break the tension…

Yep. That’ll do :) LOL

This guy has the best facial expressions EVER!!! By the time he finished Hero though, I was tricked into thinking his performance was kind of sweet rather than hilarious... until Simon stated it was something out of Star Wars. Then, suddenly, it was funny again.

Thanks, Chewie! You just made my day :)

Hej alla! Hur mår du?


Okay... So I still don't know any Swedish... But I did manage to translate a whole pattern from Virka Amigurumi by Mia Bengtsson!! Yay for me!! :)

The pattern was on page 43. The last page of the book. Svårighetsgrad: utmaning. Which basically means: challenging! Because crocheting a foreign pattern alone would be waaay too easy... ;)

The pattern named Flicka (Girl) was the reason I bought this book. Sooooooo cute!!! I’m really happy with the result as well!!!

So here it goes…

I’m going to make this a scroll-down-ta-daaa-thing, so wait for it…



So what do you think? Is she cute or what?! I love her, erm, huvudbollar!!! :)

And I think the button is just perfect!

And you know what? I want to make another one!!! Or two!!! In different colours!!!


I love crochet :)

Baking time!

Maybe it’s because of Easter, or because of this movie I saw the other day, or maybe it’s just because I CAN...

... but I really felt like baking a pie yesterday!! :)

There were apples...

Mixed with cinnamon & sugar...

There was dough...

And there was a big mess in my kitchen! ;)

But in the end it all worked out!

Not bad if I may say so myself. Not bad at all :)

Goodbye March!

Oh dear! Every year it's the same old story: at the beginning of January I cannot imagine myself going through another few months of winter! Already I’ll be tired and drained of all things light and bright and warm. And I’ll tell myself: just get through January, and get through February. Just get through those two months, and you’ll be fine.

And then it’s like I’m in a crazy time-warp and all of a sudden it’s April!!! APRIL!!! What the hell happened to March?! Or to January and February for that matter?! It’s one big, black hole in my mind!!!

Then I calm down and – every year – have the same thought.


IT’S APRIL, PEOPLE!!! *happy dance*

Goodbye winter!!! And long live the spring!!! :D
