Denmark Day 1

30 08 2010

This morning (bright and early at 5:15am) Bernard came over to our house to pick me and mum up, and off we went to the airport to get a 6:30am flight top Billund. We managed to make it on time (got the Emergency Exit Seats…we were some of the first people from the non-priority queue) and off we left on a pretty uneventful flight.

We landed on time (dodorodododo…this is another ontime flight with Ryanair hihi) and met Ann, Michael and his parents at the airport. We left Billund and made our way to Odder, to visit Michael’s sister Majbrit and her newborn baby Mai (it was the first time Michael saw her too 🙂 ). There we had lunch…smørrebrød…the traditional Danish open sandwiches…and chatted. The sandwiches were not too bad, actually quite good.

Once Michael’s other nephew, Magnus, came home from school, we then left (me, Ann, Michael, mum, Michael’s parents and Magnus) to go to the Marselisborg Dyreave (Deer Park). There we fed the deer carrots. They come to eat from your hand and were soooo cute :D. After this we went down to the beach nearby and skipped rocks.

We then made our way back to Odder, where we left Magnus at home, and then started our way to Toftlund…Michael’s parents’ house. We have now arrived, and me and mum chose our room (we have separate rooms….and Ann and Michael get to stay at the neighbours’ haha). We got a tour of the house (VERRRRY NICE) and now are waiting for dinner to be ready.

I will hopefully be able to update you with photos soon…I should be getting a camera tomorrow…Ann brought her old one to give to me…but it has no batteries…so tomorrow will go buy batteries….But Maichael’s father took plenty…

Off to eat

Should be asleep

29 08 2010

It is 11pm here in Malta, and I should be asleep, cos tomorrow I have a 6:30am flight to Billund…however I cannot sleep…so came to surf the net to pass the time, and have decided to post a blog post…I have too many thoughts running through my head at the moment in order for me to manage to sleep…am I taking the right decisions with respect to what my life will bring with it from now on?, am I being fair to everyone involved?…I do not want to screw up what I have till now…Am I capable of getting my PhD?…will I manage to move away from home and live in another country? To put the cherry on the cake, I have not been feeling so grand lately…the fever is still on, and I still have a slight cold…but otherwise I am OK…hope everything works out for the best.

I will try to go back to sleep now. Love you all (especially you reading this post whilst half asleep…Thank you)


Packing ready…and Ready to go!

29 08 2010

Well…the latest spat of illnesses will not put me down…I have just had a good sleep, and woke up to pack for tomorrow’s flight to Billund :D…now packing is ready and all I can do is wait…tomorrow morning we have a 6:30am flight. Bernard is lovingly coming over for me and mum somewhere around 5:15am so that we make our way to the airport…I might not blog as much in the coming week…will see depending upon PC and internet access. We will be staying at my sister’s boyfriend’s parent’s house for the first few days. Then Wednesday we will make our way to Copenhagen, until Saturday, when we fly back (separate flights…cos mum bought the flight tickets before me and it was too expensive to come back with Norwegian Air, so I bought Air Malta tickets, meaning I have a stop over at Munich (only 1.5hours so quite OK))…have blogged about this when I bought the tickets here.

I look forward to meeting my sister weeee…have not seen her in I do not know how many months…and also to see Denmark…hope all goes well!
