Dear Marc, today was a great day. Vanja turned 5.
She got all she wished for and more:
1 big bowl of breakfast porridge
1 glass of juice
1 big books about cats
1 Madicken book
1 soft set of PJ's
1 Russian doll, to be painted by anyone 5 yrs or older
Her politically correct mom had promised to bring organic exotic fruit to pre-school to be hid in the forest as a treasure during an outing. However, the pc mom ran out of time, luck and money and made an apple pie instead. The attempt to convince the pre-school teachers to hide the pie in the forest was highly unsuccessful. The pie seemed to have been treasured no less, not a crumb was left.
Then I threw correctness out the window and opted for indulgence. I picked two cakes from this array and went to pick Vanja up from pre-school.
Meanwhile, she'd been crowned. She's the ruler of my heart and this day, she reigned supreme at pre-school too.
My parents and brother came for dinner. Mom said "Oh no, I'm not wearing make-up. And I'm sure you're going to put me on that world wide web again!". She never wears make up. So I don't know what she was worried about. That world wide web, perhaps.
My brother Björn cut the cake. He's a radio reporter. If you want to listen to him, click here to hear a clip. It features my brother's interviews from NASA, Houston, where he went to find out more about food in space and space toilets. Björn's lovely girlfriend, Frida the judge, couldn't make it to our house. She was in Russia on a research trip.
It was a good b-day. Just like last year's.
When is your birthday?
