A weekend with nothing planned other than pure relaxation. Loved it!

It's Sunday evening now, I should probably be getting ready for bed but since I had a nap in the afternoon, I'm not really all that tired. We didn't do anything at all this weekend other than watch tv, play computer, sleep and eat. Last weekend was fun - Anders, Tine and I went out for dinner at the local Thai restaurant and then saw a Danish band - TV2 - play here in Vejle. It was fun. Good music, good food and good company. Tine and I went downtown for a couple of drinks after the concert but nothing major. Met up with some friends and then went home. A nice evening.

I have a killer week next week with work and social activities. I have extra shifts Tuesday, Friday and Saturday evenings plus my usual days and evenings at Jættebo. Plus family stuff on Sunday. Oh well, I like my job so I'm sure it'll be fine. Just a little tough.
Here are some family pictures - my cousin Jesper and his girlfriend Vibeke had twins early December 2007 and here they are!

Jesper and Vibeke

Karin - Jesper's mom with her new grandchildren. Hello Line and Tobias!

I've been busy with my hobbies and I'm becoming friends with my sewing machine. I don't have a name for her yet (Yes, I'm talking about my Queen Deluxe machine...) My coworker at Jættebo is my rock - she's been teaching me how to read the patterns and small tricks of the trade. I have made a shirt from scratch - a "very easy" project... that took me freaking forever! Instead of "very easy", it should have said "Very easy for anyone else other than RIE!!" Argh!! But I finished it and I think it's wearable. I'm not scared off from sewing but I have learned that I have to start from the very beginning. My next project - a skirt... also "very easy"... yeah right, we'll see about that!

Ok, I'm starting to ramble on and on so I should end this post for now. I'll be back.

But it's not like I have interesting news or stories to post. I spend most of my time working so I haven't been on any new and exciting adventures lately.

But life is ok. My jobs are good and I'm still very happy for my career choice. I've been working some extra shifts - school party in Nørup last Thursday and Jelling Halbal tonight... Jelling Halbal is where the kids are allowed to drink so it'll be a long night. Plus we have the diverse activities this month including a skating trip to Herning, Halbal in Vejle etc. But it's all good.

Next weekend, I will finally have a "fun" weekend. My old apartment is finally out of the picture so I don't have to worry about moving or cleaning (although this place could use a good clean!) so Anders, Tine and I are going to have some fun next Saturday. We are going to a TV2 concert - the plan is to eat dinner together before and then just relax and listen to good music. Have a few drinks and then we'll see what happens after the concert. Maybe go downtown to the local pub or not.... we'll find out next weekend.

Things here at home are good too. Anders loves his job and is busy studying for... something. Computer stuff. Our little apartment is coming around - we still need to hang up some shelves and pictures but it's getting there. A little messy at the moment but we'll survive for now. My hobbies have been at a standstill but I'm working on a shirt and a painting at the moment so hopefully I'll have something to show off tomorrow. We'll see what happens.
