"you look like a filmstar, mummy"
When you come out from the bathroom on a Monday morning.
I nearly asked her what she wanted or needed me to do or what she'd done but decided not to. Maybe she did just mean I looked amazing.
Well, I chose to believe that's what she meant.
It's going to be a lovely day.

We left Denmark in a very heavy fully packed car and drove to Bremen where we stayed overnight. The next day we drove on to the Hook of Holland to catch the overnight ferry to Harwich. We arrived in England at Nana and Papa's on a Sunday morning nearly a month ago. 2pm lots of family members showed up for the big family football game. The daddy had arranged it all from the comfort of the sofa back in Denmark. The little man was the youngst player and the daddy and the little man's team won 9-1. They claim it was fair play....
The day after the family football it was the princess' 10th birthday. She chose her birthday cake and got her biggest wish fullfilled. She finally got a mobile phone. We stayed with Nana and papa for a little over a week, had fun with our little cousin, had yummy food, flew kites and relaxed. We went to London for the day, saw it all (not really but most of the turist bits) and finished of the day going to see The Lion King. It was amazing. After London and Nana's amazing brunch the next day we drove to Nottingham. We spent 3 lovely days there before heading north to Newcastle and a little further north to Walwick where we were staying with friend we haven't seen for many years. Turned out they live on top of part of Hadrians Wall. They took us to a museum where we learned all about Hadrian, his wall and the Romans. We had a great time with them and by far not enough time. We had to get a ferry back to Amsterdam from Newcastle. A little over a week ago we arrived in Amsterdam at 9.30am. We drove home the same day and arrived at our house in Denmark at 9.30pm tired but happy having had an amazing holiday. Prepare for a massive amount of pictures below.

We have now entered the 3rd week of the school holiday and we are still enjoying just being at home and relaxing. The children have had a few playdates and spent a lot of time making these. They look on the internet for ideas.
Tomorrow the little man is off to Legoland with a friend and his family. The princess is off to her friends summerhouse to play for the day.
We are then celebrating the princess' birthday (a bit early as she wont be 10 until Monday) with the Danish side of the family tomorrow night.
Because Friday we're off to England on holiday YEAH!! My mum are staying in our house to look after Muffin the cat and to watch all the tv channels we have and she doesn't. Don't tell her I said that.....
We can't wait to go on holiday and this year we're visiting Nottingham and Newcastle both places we have never been before. First though we're spending 1½ week at Nana and Papa's.
