Shock - Horror....!!!!

I was watching This Morning (well, the Danish equivalent that is) and what do I hear and see?  That the newest mens' spring fashion will be cut off sweatpants, a T-shirt and a suit jacket together!
I'm sorry, WHAT?????????????
I had to call the daddy at work to tell him because I was in such shock. Big cheers at the other end of the phone and him shouting:

"I've been doing that for years"

Which I have to say is partly right.... The suit jacket he has never worn with them but the cutoff sweatpants he's been sporting for years but not with my approval though!!! Now I can't complain.... He has the fashion world on his side and he will not let it go... He'll be wearing these everywhere now come spring/summer, I just know it!!!


I don't know what to do....

"When I'm older I will live in another house"

Stated the little man last night. Okay, where will you live??

"In no 66"

We live in no 77 and as no street name was mentioned, we must assume the little man meant not too far from here... In no 66!!!
The princess and the daddy was playing Guess Who before bedtime.

The daddy: "does yours have hair on the face?"

The princess: "No! Only eyeBROWNS"

She's always said it and we can't bear to correct her.... As we live in Denmark I guess it can take a while before she realizes it's wrong!!

Map of the World.

I wished for one and got one! We love looking at it and when I find the right size pins we'll pin all the places we've been. Each of us have our own colour and as a family we'll have one so we can pin where we've been. Either alone, together, as a family and in years to come I imagine the princess and little man will pin places they've been without mummy and daddy.
The little man loves looking at the little flags at the bottom of the map, one for each country in the world. He knows a lot of them which the Euros and the Olympics this summer helped along.

We have 2 atlases which we do look in every so often but having the whole world hanging on the wall at the childrens height is better. We talk about countries, flags, football teams, people and lots more when we look at it. Being a mixed family of Danish/British maybe the interest is bigger, I don't know!!??

Do you have an atlas or a map in your house??

"What did she have....?"

I asked the princess the other day when I picked her up. One of her teachers had had a baby and she came to show the children the little one. The princess proudly told me she had stroked the baby's cheek very gently. Which led to the question "what did she have?" The princess looked at me liked I was stupid. "Erm... a baby!!" Trying not to laugh too loudly I said "was the baby a boy or a girl" The princess started giggling "a girl"!!!

We've finally found a way the funiture in her room should be placed. It's a small room and she needs floor space to dance in front of her mirror... Or to just have enough space to look at herself! Anyway we managed to make her desk area really cosy and she does love to sit and draw or write her little stories there.

Facts I found because I was bored on sunday night!

Why was I bored..? Absolutely nothing on tv worth watching. I didn't feel like reading so I typed in funny facts on Google. There sure is a lot of facts nobody really need at all but thought I'd share a few with you guys. Here goes:
By raising your legs slowly and laying on your back, you can't sink in quicksand. Right, I'll keep that in mind when I accidently walk into a puddle of quicksand and start sinking!
Flying from London to New York by Concord, due to the time zones crossed, you can arrive 2 hours before you leave. Brilliant, then I have a couple of hours extra to shop!
Starfish don't have brains. That's a bit harsh....
Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backwards. Neither can I so what's the big deal..?
It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. But why would you do that in the first place...?

The List!

I was reading Random Woman's blog post The one with the indiscreet tweet and list weeping with laughter and also feeling very comforted by reading that other people have a "list" too. I was relieved to find Fireman Sam on Random Woman's list because Jessica Rabbit is on my soulmate's list.
Me: "But why honey?" Him: "She's hot" Me: "She's a cartoon....." Him: "She's not a rabbit, she just took his name, she's a woman" Me: "Again... She's a cartoon honey, a drawing"
Back to the list.... another shocker on my soulmate's list, Pamela Anderson. Really honey....?!
Mine is classy with the Pince of Denmark Frederik, David Beckham and ooh... Jesse Metcalfe!

Animal facts!

Denmark has twice as many pigs as there are people. (around 11 million pigs in Denmark then....)

A dog was the first animal in space. (What animal was second choice...??)

A sheep, a duck and a rooster were the first animals to fly in a hot air balloon. (Cos they are the animals that get along the best...??)

Animal accents! The accent of a cow’s mooing depends on the region it belongs to. (Sorry... What??)

You can lead a cow up the stairs, but not down the stairs. (Well maybe if you moo in the right accent you can....)

Is a zebra black with white stripes, or white with black stripes? Any guesses?
Well, it’s white with black stripes. (Is it..???)


The butterfly was originally known as the ‘flutterby’. (Who changed it then...??)

Where does the rain come from.......

My daughter asked the other day at dinner. Her daddy started to explain that it comes from the sea. That when it gets hot then.... That's all he got to say. I know now..... she yelled!

"It's because the earth turns around! It rains when we are upside down! From the sea!" 


Logic innit???
And who won't believe a girl like this....
