Before we go down this morning Ellie took a
shower and I clean her hair. Then she showed Jill how to put make up
on. Jill was very interested.
Ellie had problems to open our bedroom door *S*!
No modern door handles here!
Breakfast together with Daddy, he loves
breakfast!!! And every other meals. In the store testing new clothes
here to meet Ellie and to go with us shopping.
Ellie love to dress up so she tried every hat she
could find. She love to act in front of the camera...maybe she
should start to play theatre, but just now she have so many other
activities..she take lessons with skating to be a skating
Jonnie and Roy came to take Ellie half the way to
Gothenburg tonight where they will meet Jennie. It was silent in the
house when our little sunshine have gone back home.
Thursday 30 October 2008
We bought this on the boat for Jonnie.
Not easy to read the papers with dogs all over,
they LOVE Ellie, especially when she eat *S*! Tired to wait for
Ellie and I went to the toy store in Götene today
and found many funny things. We bought some things that she can read
in and work with and a advent calendar with toys inside that she can
start to open 1 of December...she was so happy for that one all
girls at school have that on top of their list just now.
We saw many nice things there for Christmas, and
now I know a little bit more what to buy then. And I saw sooooo many
things for Eddie that he need next 5 years...but I would like to buy
When Rune was ready with his work today we met
him in a store and bought a large Santa Clause that sing and act
like a real person, fantastic. He will meet our guests in our hall
from the first of Advent.
And we were shopping some food and chips and
lottery...need to win!!!!
And we bought a bicycle that I can sit on an
exercise...my cross trainer is not that good for my heal string.
In the evening Rune and Ellie put it
together and she played with all frigolite that was in the
package...she have a dream to get just frigolite for Christmas
*S*..and now she get it already for free..she build house for her
small toys in the frigolite!?!
Wednesday 29 October 2008
Poor Rune have to go to work early. Ellie woke up
too early and was hungry (poor me) so we had to go up too.
We got a visitor for coffee and he had cakes with
him as usual. We found out that we have had
more visitors in the room, blääääää!
Just look for some TV in the evening and took
care of all necessary things with bills etc before it is new month
Tuesday 28 October 2008
Just a little wind last two hours before we were
in Gothenburg with the boat...but no problem and the night have been
VERY calm. No wind at all that we could feel in the boat. Hurray! I
would like to go again as soon as possible with this boat to
Early morning back in Gothenburg. Here comes the
small boat "Älvsnabben" over the river. My father was going with
that boat every morning for over 40 years when he was on his way to
the Warf Eriksberg.
Ellie and Jennie and Jill was waiting for us in
the harbour. Ellie is free from school this week and are going to
stay with us. Jennie was in a hurry to go back to her work again.
Jill decide to go back home with us today...(she have been on
holiday at Jennies place since before we were going to Åland).
On the way back home we go to our Vet, and met
our favourite and friend Ann Kristine there, she is the best!!
We were very tired this afternoon and Ellie was a
little bit sick with cough and fever so we did not do more things
It was very cold in the house and as we haven't
bought any wood this year yet (the oven need to be repaired for lot
of money first, and we have as You can understand put those money on
"other things" *S*).
Monday 27 October 2008
We woke up to another day in this beautiful
all we would like to stay but we were in a hurry to go back home
because of Runes work. After packing all things together again and
feeding and walking the dogs (they walk their selves in the
fantastic garden) we say goodbye to Diana and drive away.
Devlina ready to go to the car.
There were pheasants on the field. Sometimes in spring tulips all
over this field.
When we came out on the road I saw the sign
to Medemblik and we decide to go there to look for a lamp I saw
there yesterday night in a store. I really would like to take it
with me back home. And we would like to se this small town once
again because it was so picturesque and beautiful.
The store with the lap was closed but we took a
photo of it and Rune say that he could red the prize......1290 Euro
(about 12.000:-)!!!!! Many times to expensive for me just
now.....BUT when we have won a lot of money on Lotto, we will be
We went to another store close to the other and
play some bongs with Lotto *S*, You never know...we told the lady in
the store that we will buy a house here IF we win a lot of money.
Nice girl in the store, and all this lovely
bread! Rune would like to buy a kg of carrots ???? He don't like it
at home!!! When I saw the carrots in marzipan I understand because
that is the best thing he can get. And look at the
potatoes.....Ohhhhhh....but we did not buy anything of these, but
Rune talked about carrots all the way back home!!!!
Next to that shop we saw a bakery...and of course
we HAVE TO look what they have to advise/offer. Too much of course.
I bought me some kind of bread that was called "Musliebollen" and
they have to be send by God to Medemblik because they were the best
I ever have tasted. Just some butter on and a slice of
cheese....Mmmmmmmmmmmmm. One more reason for me to come back
was tired to here my Mmmmmmmmm for a long time because he hate
healthy bread...he only eat white!!!
He bought him self a bread with LOT of cheese on
that they put in the oven for him...and he bought something with lot
of vanilla cream in and sugar powder on.
On our way back to our car I FOUND "THE STORE OF
MY DREAMS"!!!! Since I was very little I have dream about to have my
own flower shop, but it have never been time for that. But here it
The quality of all plants and flowers were so
fantastic in this country if I compare with ours at home.
But when I look at the prizes of the flowers I
understand what Andre means when he say that it was sooooo expensive
to buy flowers, and because of that he never buy it for Diana *S*!!
It was probably in this store he have been looking.
We didn't buy anything here either, it was a way
toooooo expensive for us....but soooo fantastic!!! Maybe next time
when we are coming to get our win from the LOTTO, then I might buy
the whole store *S*!
Swans in the town. Close to A and D house there
were about 50 swans in the canal sleeping in the night. Canals all
Everyone want their houses to be built close to
the canal now.
Here is the small harbour in Medemblik.
Many, many fantastic gardens.
Beautiful parks close to the water.
Lots of birds all over.
Back again crossing the 50 km
long dike again.
Strange buildings.....it has to
be much more expensive to build it this way!?!
And Germany, here we come again!
When we were in Europe last month we played Lotto
that we checked in Kiel this evening. As You can see the usual
procedure as every time..NOTHING! We got the perfect parking on the
boat this time we could walk right in front of our car in the white
door there. Up one stair and then we were at the place we can let
our dogs out to pee, then in through a door and we were in the
corridor with our animal cabin.
The meaning tonight was that we
should drive all the way back home, because it is to expensive to
take the boat both ways for us, but we were so tired and was just
longing for some food and a bed just now. Even if it costs 360 Euro
(3500:-) plus 55 Euro (540:-)for the food....just to pay and don't
try to think about it.
talked to some guys that was working on the boat and ask if it was
windy....about 15 sec/m they say...so I was a little bit worried
again..of course better than 20 on our way down but toooo much for
me. I took only ONE pill today because I do not want to sleep all
day tomorrow again *S*!
It was a perfect trip, soooooo funny to take the boat and relax when
You don't need to be afraid for the storm. We eat a lot this time,
and sit in the restaurant for two hours, then we went to the cabin
and our dogs that were sleeping already. Rune took them out 10
meters to the "pee area" and then they fall asleep again. I was
sitting at the computer and worked with all photos..it took some
hours. This is what take most time to do before I can start to write
in my diary every time..that is why I can't update every day..and
even if I do Rune do not have the time to move it over to the
internet...and with our problems now with the computer it takes
hours every time!
Maybe we needed two cabins *S*!
Look what Diana made for Eddie, Thank You so
much, You are the Best. Nathalie and Jimme and Eddie will be so
happy for this. Then a photo of how The Astonishing Dalmatians in
Holland looks like! Very nice and calm....
You can read lot of funny things (for us) in
other countries *S*, and it is allowed to go with "BLACK" taxi here,
it is not allowed at home, where it means that You pay for it with
Sunday 26 October 2008
As You all can see there is something wrong with
our modem so it can't upload all photos to 100%..hopefully it will
be fixed in some time.
Today we have only 5 minutes drive to the show Annemiek told us.....perfect.
A and D and R and I go together because Annemiek have to go there a
bit earlier than us. We followed Andres car as usual. In case of he
put his navigator on the right address...BUT after 30 minutes
sightseeing in Vilvoorde this early morning we all start to be a
little stressed. I suggested that we should call Annemiek and ask WHERE she was *S*. We were at the right
address but can't find the
showplace......BUT just then there came a car and we think it was a
very good idea to follow it....WHY!!!! The car was spotted!!!!! Just
crazy Dalmatian people can have a car like that *S*!
We followed that car some hundred meters and there we saw the
a nice place for the show ring and they have put tables around the
ring so You can sit and have Your catalogue and things on
the table, so nice.
Mrs Liliane de Ridder the chairman of the Club. The Judge
Mrs Aase Jacobsen from Norway with Mr de Ridder, all at the show was
standing listening to the Belgium Anthem.
We thought for a second that it was change of judge today because
Aase was soooooo elegant with more makeup than normal and so
Today we have entered three
dogs Daddy, Gloria and Devlina (But because I have to go back to
Utrecht in Holland for BIS I did not have the time to show
Gloria....so sorry for that).
BIS Puppy today was from Kennel the Astonishing
(by Bossons daughter ........and a male from Sweden).
Of course Diana was happy for their Best Puppy,
even if he is sold and are leaving to another country next week.
Here You can follow the placements.
Diana with the BIS trophy.
BOS Puppy was from the Astonishing too.
Lot of Cups!
We saw some sweet dogs there. This male beat
Daddy in intermediate, the owner is a puppy buyer to us (They have
Bells sister, but unfortunately she was not entered here). But they
could meet Bosson and Bell for the first time which they enjoyed.
Nr one and Nr two in another
Mr Achtergal and his dog was
the winner in another class. Some nice
things to buy!
I was so happy to meet two
successful children of Devlin here, in Champion class is here Multi
champion Alphadirato Emperor (Luis) that lives in Germany (Donnas
brother), he was beautiful.
Here is Luis from behind.
And here is Neelix from behind.
Multi Champion Dot Com Break Me shake Me
(Neelix), he look gorgeous and I loved the look in his eyes!
I was hoping that some of them would be the
winner of Champion class, but another male from Kennel Gwynmor beat
Neelex, Gwynmor Yamka living in Italy (He was BOS
today) and Luis.
In the middle of the day we have all ordered
lunch at the show.
Rune and Annemiek have both PIGS on their
When we came in the morning we got two envelopes.
One with the show number and one with those small papers in. I
thought it was something that have been given us by a mistake so I
throw them away. Thank You Lilliane that gave us new *S*!
Even the judge have to wait for the lunch (just
as in school).
Lot of visitors.
Guess who have been parking just outside the gate??
Rhys served wine to people from
England. It seams like he is saying -
I swear to God, not to server
more wine this year....except to my selves!!!
If You have space enough in
your car You can buy one of these....we have no room for anything
thank good *S*!
Chantal (in pink) with her
Championbitch (Devlins Daughter) Donna, Rocca al Mare Donatella from
Devlina was Nr 1, a bitch from
Holland at second place and Gwynmor Ysgaven third and at fourth
place a bitch from France.
My sweet little Devlina, and
Andre and I was on our way to Holland and missed all this!
Before they said who won the
CAC and best bitch, it was silent and then the National Anthem from
the winners country started...what a nice thing to do...but Rune
almost didn't recognise the Swedish Anthem.....(maybe he was waiting
for the Norwegian *S*)!!!
Two more bottles of Champagne,
Hurray. We will celebrate with our new champagne glasses we got from
Niina in Finland a while ago...
At New years Eve we will open
those bottles and Celebrate for all our friends in the whole world
for a successful and healthy new Year 2009.
We really needed Gloria in this
breeding class, but Daddy, Seven and Devlina was Nr 2 in the
competition anyway. Well done!
We left two of Devlina's "The
Queens" prices in Belgium, they should be back next year. But the
big one in the middle is now in our home.
Best Bitch was The Queen and
Best male The King, and today the QUEEN became BEST OF BREED/BEST IN
Hurray for Sweden!
Once again thank You Diana that stayed and
showed Seven so Andre could drive me to Utrecht. Without You we have
got really problems.
Seven was Nr 2 in her large
class with EXCELLENT, and Rune took a video of it to show us in the
At the BIS final in Utrecht.
Gloria was placed at BIS 9, but
got a very nice cup and flowers!!!
She was more interested
in the photographers crazy sound *S* so I didn't get any contact
with her at the photo shout....I just think this is a funny photo,
so I show it anyway!
Andre and I drive back to
Medemblik to let the dogs out and to wait for Diana and Rune. They
were on their way back from Vilvoorde after a lucky day, with the
car full of prices and dog food.
Gloria and I was resting in
"our" room in the barn for a while until Rune called and ask Andre
and me to drive into Medemblik to meet him and Diana at the
restaurant. We have decide yesterday to go out and eat...we were al
to tired to fix food this evening.
Sooo happy that our car still
was going without any problems.
Everything was almost closed at
21.30 so at last we found a very nice Chinese food restaurant that
we could stay and eat even if they were closing (Andre is a regular
guest there, that helped) It was very good but I was almost to tired
to eat..so the dogs get lot of nice food in the evening *S*!
After looking at the movie from
the show we all went to a good nights sleep.
We say goodbye to Andre tonight
because he was going to work early in the morning...poor man. and we
were leaving about 10 o'clock.
Saturday 25 October 2008
After a good nights sleep we entered our car and
follow after André......towards Utrecht south of Amsterdam. The show
was held at the old Veemarkt (The Animal auction hall). We saw the
sun rise while we were driving.
At the showplace we parked and when we were
entering to show our papers there were lot of problems. The yellow
papers we have got means that they haven't got any entry fee from
They were very
helpful and tried to find someone close by that have internet access
so Rune can show them our account for them with our payment.
The clock was ticking and in just a little while
it will start for our breed. I try to be calm but I get more and
more stressed...we decide not to show Daddy even if he was entered
because he will go in to the ring at once when Dalmatians start, and
his coat was even more bad today than yesterday so it was no use to
show him at all. We have Bosson and the girls Bell and Gloria
entered today too, so hopefully we will be at the ring in time for
We leave our
Visacard number and some more things so finally we got our papers.
We don't want to pay 220 Euro once again for this show...but if we
do they will find them later and send them back..ok first of all we
rush to the ring.
now in not that good mood as we were before, but after talking to
all friends and foreign people around the ring we start to look
forward to this day anyway.
And what a hell, we have paid for Daddy so we
decide just to show him anyway. We have never met Oleg Fintora from
Czechoslovakia before and did not know what he was looking for.
Someone told us that he was Ludmila Fintorovas husband....we have
not think about that *S*!
Daddy was happy to enter the ring even if we did
not expect anything more than VERY GOOD today this is still good
training. We were both so happy when he got EXCELLENT, and from the
ringside his coat look very good even if it wasn't. He met Caio
(Elaridge Celtic Warrior) and of course he won the class with Rhys
in the lead.
Bosson was the only Champion male and got
EXCELLENT. In the best winner class for all winning males (only nr 1
in every class is there for the competition) there were Caio from
Holland and Two males from England and Bosson from Sweden. Caio was
nr 1 Best Male and then they will pick just one reserve after him.
As Daddy was nr 2 after Caio he have to come in for the competition
with the three other males that still was standing waiting...I
didn't think about that so I have to run to the bench and take him
out. Then we have to start running again and after some minutes the
judge point his finger on me.......Daddy have been nr 2, the reserve
Best Male after Caio. I was more than happy that we showed him
Who will be Best Male?
It seams like the judge say to Rune.....Hi there,
You can take the same way out as You came in *S*, but of course he
want to see Bosson going and coming!
This nice couple came all the way from
England...*S*....Oh no not this time....England is not that far from
Holland, this time it was us that came all the way from Sweden *S*!
Then the bitches started. Gloria was the winner
in her class with EXCELLENT and the reserve, nr 2 was her sister
Seven also with EXCELLENT Hurray....this was just a perfect day and
all problems were forgotten.
Bell got only VERY GOOD, but was the winner of
junior class in front of another bitch.
Bell did it well but she like outdoor shows
better than indoor. Gloria was placed at first place in her class at
once and when all the other was running for second place Seven
looked at her like she was thinking -: Ok my dear sister You can
stay there this time..but do You remember who was nr 1 in
Running for Best Bitch here.
Fantastic.......Even Best Bitch!!! Annemiek and
Andre was first to congratulate. We got CAC and CACIB......So happy!
Gloria and Caio in the last competition.
Elaridge Celtic Warrior BOS and Jilloc's Splendid Choice BOB.
Yeeeeeeeees, she really is a splendid choice!!!
Just a funny photo. It seams
like Mr Fintoro is given the photographers (Diana and Rune) a
finger, but he was a very nice and gentle judge so of course he was
just putting his glasses up on this photo *S*.
Annemiek should show her puppy from Lacrima
Christi in Best Puppy Competition in the afternoon before Gloria
should compete in the group, so we all went to eat and relax for
Everyone eat ONE big meatball in Holland,
strange!!! Seven and Puppy in cage. I changing my underpants *S*!
What You can't see at photos when I was running
in the end was that I wear silky underpants today with tights over
that was slipped down all the time when I was running.....IF we have
had to run just a little more all people would got a great laugh. It
was really critical last minutes running in the ring! So I have to
go out to our car and find some that was in cotton and not in silk
Nice things for the winners!
There were lot of Puppies but Annemieks puppy was placed!
Gloria in high speed in the ring, my poor foot!
Running and waiting.
Best In Group
Gloria was Nr 1 in Group for
Judge Ms G W de Vries-Hoogland from Holland.
Now we really got problems for tomorrow, because
she will be back for BIS tomorrow afternoon, and we are going
directly to Belgium now for the Club show there tomorrow in
Anyway we all
packed our things together and start to drive towards Belgium. We
had to stop after 30 minutes because Andre and Diana's puppy have to
go out for a while. Just when we drove in to the parking place there
came lot of smoke in our car and You can feel that something smell
like it was burning!!!!! I jump out and found some lead for our
dogs, I have to get them out quickly!!!
Rune opened the hood and saw that oil lid have
fall of (he have filled oil yesterday and have probably not put it
on hard enough) it was oil all over.....hopefully it was only this,
so nothing else had happened to the engine or something.
When I walk our dogs Rune was going to fill more
oil on the engine, AND he unfortunately pushed the oil lid so it
fell somewhere under the engine.
We all tried to find it...but it was gone!!???!!
After about an hour when we all was freezing and
it start to be darker Rhys and Andre walk to the gas station close
to us and bought a lamp and a new temporary lid to our car, thank
You what should we have done without You all, and You stayed with us
until we could drive again.
This little thing was not closed hard enough!!!
Rune and André had black stripes in their hair..it looked nice and
we all laugh a lot..what else could we do!!!
Andre though he saw the yellow lid..but it was
probably a hallucination. Annemiek try to find it, but only saw oil.
I thought they have bought a chocolate cake for
Diana, but it was the lid *S*, I start to be hungry on cakes when I
Rhys was afraid
when I start the car, he was waiting for a big bang...but it went
We drove carefully towards Belgium and the Hotel
that Annemiek have booked. Thank You so much for all help!
Very nice and cheap hotel that we can recommend.
We ate a nice dinner together and went to bed, after a loooong but
Friday 24 October 2008
We were in Kiel at 9 o'clock.....so perfect to
walk the dogs in our own "garden" at the boat, then we do not have
to stop immediately to let them out. We drove almost an hour and
then stopped to buy tea...
I am sure it was something wrong with my teabag
but Rune said that it was me that still was so drugged that I can't
drink. He ask to get my tea but I was almost sleeping again and told
him that I have to think about it for 5 minutes first *S*.... then I
was falling a sleep for 3,5 hours....I heard all noise from the
road, but continue to sleep. I have not power to open my eyes...
When I woke up I was "normal" again!!!
We stopped and bought beautiful flowers on our
way to Medemblik.
At three o'clock we met André and Diana at Kennel
Of The Three Turnips close to Medemblik where they all live. Nice to
meet Freak and all his dogs.
We have to meet A and D to find the way to three
Turnips. Freak with one puppy from the smallest litter.
He even had another litter of Basset Artésien
Normand now. Desiree' with her favourite puppy. She was extra fond
of this puppies because her male was father to the litter (And he
suddenly died when the puppies was newborn). Desiree' I hope You can
take this puppy home if Your parents allowed it in a while *S*. I
cross my fingers for You. Rune with another bitch from the same
Diana had bought cake for the coffee, I wonder
Rune found an old friend here. Freak had a "head"
from his Rune...Timanka's Almost A Clown in his livingroom *S*, see
how similar they are!
After some hours there we
continue to Kennel Astonishing's House and their fantastic garden. I
had a dream to see it in real for over three years now and I can
tell You that I was not disappointed at all...even bigger than I
could dream about, what a fantastic place!!!
All those beautiful planted trees all over
Holland. And all those cheep everywhere.
But best of it all is Andre and Diana's place.
Diana opened the door to our "hotel". Perfect to drive the car into
Hurray.......Run Wild Run Free!!!!
Daddy pee on all the others.
Seven and Florence in the background at their
side..Daddy happy on his side!
Hi sister Seven........do the grass smell the
same on Your side???
Here comes Daddy!!!
Our dogs loved their "guestgarden"!
After being out with all dogs I took a shower and
we eat together and went to bed while it still was Friday.
This was in our room. Diana thought we maybe need
something sweet during the night *S*!
Thursday 23 October 2008
Soo tired when the doctor called early and tell
that I have to go there today to get my foot taped again...I was
happy for that because I really have lot of pain.
When I was back after an hour. I eat breakfast
and give food to all dogs. We want them to eat many hours before we
enter the boat to Germany tonight.
Rune was home at two o'clock from work and we
took our last thing into the car.
Then we go to the vet to get some papers for our
trip. and our way to Gothenburg I have to go to a shop to leave some
clothes back and we were buying lot of sour milk for our dogs to put
in the cooler we got this summer from Kaj and Sissel and Ericka and
Knut, the best thing we ever have had...thank You!
It was almost storm all the way to Gothenburg and
when we were there in the harbour it was even worse!!!!! Ohhhhhhh, I
hate to go by boats and especially in the night, and when there is
We had an own
corridor together with 8 other dog owners and veranda with a small
dog yard and a sandbox. It was so perfect and some of our dogs love
to pee and shit in these small sandbox. Some of them...as Bell
don't. She is a lady and only some times in the day she allow her
self to pee...
The cabin was small but of course they have not
expect someone to bring 5 big dogs in there *S*. We have two cages
with us there because we were planning to go and eat buffet at 9
o'clock....so in case of that our well behaving dogs try to eat
something up in the cabin..we put our youngest in cages.
Because we heard the captain say that it will be
very windy and 20 second meters and more I decide to take some pills
and to go to the dinner immediately before it start to float up and
down tooo much......
took just a little food to taste and not much dessert at all (not
normal for me), not that I got sea sick but if it is really stormy I
hate to know that I have been eating a lot. Most afraid am I that
the ship will explode or sink and I don't know how to save us and
the dogs..never forget when we go to Estonia 2007.....it was
terrible in really heavy sea and our cabin was placed in the front
and it was lot of loud noise from the waves and the wind. I was
thinking about "Estonia" on the bottom under us and I almost got panic..crying and shaking me during the whole night....I
This cabin was in the end of the ship and this boat was much more
steady so when it start to blow more and more I go to bed then it
was much better..probably I was a bit drugged so I start to get
sleepy. You were not allowed to take more then one pill each 12 hour
but of course I took two at once...
Wednesday 22 October 2008
To the driving school with Jonnie. When he was
ready I picked him up and we were going to Mac D to eat.
Then I drove him back again because he will stay
there for about 3 or 4 hours while I was at my hair dresser and when
I shop. He was really tired of all reading and testing when we
go back home again..it was already dark outside. That make
us all even more tired then we are.
Do You think I bought something? Yeeeeeees!!!
Rune and I continue with bathing dogs and pack
our car before the coming trip tomorrow.
We should try to go to bed not that late...but
Jonnie have lot of problems to go home with his car so I was on
my way to tow him home at 2 o'clock I the night....but just when I
was going out to my car a friend of him came to his help! Good, as
soon as Jonnie called and told me that he was back home I went to
bed...too late of course.
Tuesday 21 October 2008
Today Eddie weighs 3.305 kg...On 18 days he have gain 820
gram.....that is a good boy..just like his grandmother..up up and up!
Photo from Eddies first minutes on this
world....Jimmie is going to cut the navel here. Photo from
Nathalie's camera, and I got her permission to put it here in my
Between 9-11 there will come a man to help us
with get rid off some rats
that irritate us now. Of course he didn't come until 12.30
after we have been calling him up many times......I got crazy when
they think that You have all day to just go and wait for them when
they please to visit us. I had a time at the doctor that I have to
change now and I can't get any new until in the end of next
was going back to her home again today.
After work Rune drive to Lidköping to cut his
hair, so he look nice
when we are going for dog shows. I will colour and cut my hair
Jennie and Ellie
was visiting Jimmie, Nathalie and Eddie tonight.
Photo from Nathalie.
Monday 20 October 2008
Today Jonnie and I drive to the car school to work on
theory at the
computer. I was just with him for a while and then I was back three
hours later so we could drive back home again.
Now I have sold three of my caravans...only one left that we will
keep forever *S*!
Photo from yesterday. Rune cut the hair of the bushes at the front
side. We bought a electric saw for 199 NOK at the opening of JULA in
Norway....it was perfect for this kind of work.
At five o'clock in the afternoon it is almost dark outside...then I
have some hours that I am very tired...my brain probably think it is

Hello, I am Your Mummy!
I am Your Daddy!
Just some minutes old, 3 October 2008. Poor little, his head was huge
after all hours on the way out *S*, but two days later it was
He got his own "vanity plate" for his
All weekend Jimmie have played with the machine he bought for Eddie,
and are now planning to buy Eddie a dumper so he can show him how to
load on it *S*. Funny for who???
In the evening our own HANDYMAN JENS came to try to help us with
some things....the computer first of all is crazy again, as you
probably have seen in my diary. the photos can not be uploaded more
than just a little bit and 1-15 September is totally gone!!
Rune have put in photos there again...but all that I wrote we can't
find again...sometimes maybe I have time to repair it. And we can't
close the freezer in the caravan and another door...but handyman
Jens fixed it in just a moment....
Hanna and Jens was so fond of our bed, that they
immediately start to
look at internet for a better caravan than they have at home.
We all look forward to next summer with all travelling to dogshows
We have realized
this week that it is impossible for us to go to Zagreb because of
Runes work. Otherwise we have loved to go there for 3 shows the same
weekend and to stay for some weeks with our new caravan....buuuuuuuu!!
But we are both very happy for his new work.

Look what we got from Hanna yesterday!!!
The left one with a thinner nose if for me, and the fat nose to the
right is Runes.
Thank You darling Hanna for these
protecting teddy bear angels that is in our bedroom now!
We love them!
Rune "love" to work in the garden!!!
Even Jonnie was out to help for 15 minutes *S*. Someone have broken
the fence at the backyard....can it be the one that always put cakes
on our table?
Our dogs love when someone is eating.....
Can't we get anything more if we wait......?

Still continue to clean the house..in some rooms You can start to
see a little improvement..but there is still much more work to do.
The phone was calling and it was knocking on the door at the same
time in the afternoon. Someone had taken care of a dog on E20 and
they ask if it was ours. We know the dog she is 11 year old and
live a bit behind our house, so we kept her here until the owner
came to get her.
Thank You in the
background in the white car..that You saved her...we are so grateful when people stop
and take care of dogs they see on the road..even if they not are
We were invited to a "Candlelight
dinner" in the evening at Ms Buckets residence.....ohhhhh I mean at
Anita's home *S*!
And I can
tell You that we get sooo much delicious things to eat that we almost
roll around home. Rune fall asleep in Anita's couch so she and I have
to carry him into the car.
Rune was really afraid to eat the lobster soup...but he loved it. He
was not afraid of the grilled potatoes with meat and lot of sauce,
but he jump over the vegetables!!
Rune was not that afraid of the wine and liqueur. I was freezing
as always under a blanket.
They end with a blue drink from Africa.....but what was it in it
William and Harry are two very nice and easy boys!

They will order new things and we have to be back again in some
week! Very funny! We have to buy a new car soooooo.

furniture and more
things close to the garage.
