A big DD fan here! My first DD record was by Duran Duran, it was their first record that they put out the Duran Duran (1981). Me and my best friend at the time Rosie was the only girls singing Girls on film on the swings! I and Rosie lived for DD. We knew all the songs, videos and all the articles where memorised. I can still name birthdays, old girlfriends, favourite foods and middle names of the band. We lived for the music, movies and posters, posters, posters, posters everywhere!!! We went to several concerts. Rosie and I was inseparable all trough school and then we started to see each other less and less; finally we grow apart and lost touch.
It was my birthday and I had my party at my favourite restaurant with lots of my girl friends.
I got some really cool gifts. And my sister Bella who is my absolute best friend and knows me better than any one gave me a book. She was totally exited about the book, a really old and strange book with coloured pictures. I was like okay; there must be something in this book that made her think of me, and something that she thinks that I can learn from. I looked through the book and thank her; to be honest I didn’t get it. And then she said look at the last page………….and there they were two tickets to an upcoming DD concert, one for her and one for me.
I didn’t believe it and I started to cry. Talking about how much fun we where going to have.
Then I started to think about Rosie. Wonder what happened to her and I was wondering if she would be there. Time passed and I was really looking forward to the concert. Rosie still came in my thoughts time to time. The day of the concert came. I was really exited and was listening to DD while getting ready. My sister said that I hade to come and pick her up at our parents house because her babysitter was late. I went to home to my parent’s house and it was very quiet. I got Goosebumps, something was wrong different in a way I, couldn’t put my finger on it was just a feeling I got. I called her name and she answered- I’m in the kitchen.
I went in to the kitchen an there sitting at the table was Rosie, my mind went totally blank, I didn’t know what year it was, how did she get there, was she a ghost, I got tunnel vision and almost fainted, hade to take a grab on to the zinc so I wouldn’t fall. I asked or rather whispered – are you for real?
She was and Bella had been all PI on the web and found her. Bella said that I knew that the only one that really would love this experience as much as you is Rosie, so the other ticket is for her and not me. Happy birthday!
The concert was great and we had the best time ever!!!
Thank you once again Bella and thank you Rosie. Thank you both for this moment and treasured memory. Love you!!!
After the concert while we where leaving the arena, we where talking franticly and not paying attention to the traffic. I didn’t notice that we where at a crossing Rosie stopped but I kept on going and I almost got run over by the car that the band was in. But the only thing I saw trough the window was a big camera lens. So if you ever se a girl with a red and white striped umbrella in any DD footage looking awfully much like a dear in headlights It’s me!!!!

If you would like to sing-along with Fergie here are the lyrics, trust me I will.
(Don't forget to pause the music on my playlist on the right).
Da Da Da Da
The smell of your skin lingers on me now
You're probably on your flight back to your home town
I need some shelter of my own protection baby
To be with myself and center, clarityPeace, Serenity
I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with youIt's personal, myself and I
We've got some straightenin' out to do
And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I've got to get a move on with my life
It's time to be a big girl now
And big girls don't cry
Don't cryDon't cryDon't cry
The path that I'm walking
I must go alone
I must take the baby steps 'til I'm full grown, full grown
Fairytales don't always have a happy ending, do they?
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay[
Like the little school mate in the school yard
We'll play jacks and uno cards
I'll be your best friend and you'll be my Valentine
Yes you can hold my hand if you want to
'Cause I want to hold yours too
We'll be playmates and lovers and share our secret worlds
But it's time for me to go homeIt's getting late, dark outside
I need to be with myself and center, clarityPeace, Serenity
La Da Da Da Da Da

I’m having the mother of all colds with a (slight) fever. Oh man I’m really sick.
I was at home and suddenly became very hungry, looked in to my empty fridge and found old boxes of I don’t know what (will bee sending them to an archaeology lab for a test, will keep you updated on the finds) and some cheese way in the back. I went to the nearest food store at eight pm trying to find something to eat, and then I realized that I was far to sick to kook.. Thought of going to the food court but my poor sick body couldn’t walk that far. So I locked at the frozen food section and didn’t find anything to my fancy. Because I’m very sick the food did not appeal to my poor sick taste buds. And I had TV-dinner the night before. I thought that maybe I should have something more nutritious so that my cold would ease up quicker.
I made the shoos to go to the nearest pizza house and order on to go. To be frank I often end up there on my food shopping routs. When I came in the two pizza guys smiled and said hey and kept on talking in there own languish, nothing strange about that. I was looking at the menu and trying to decide what to have for dinner. I felt the guys looking at me, looked up and they smiled, I smiled back and thought that they seemed to be awfully happy today. They kept on looking at me and smile, talking, smiling, talking and smiling. Okay so they are happy. And then I heard one of the saying “Hawaii” and the other one turned his back to me and laugh really quietly, but I saw how his shoulders go up and down. He couldn’t stop laughing so he went in to the kitchen. They where talking about ME!!! Since they where talking in there own languish I didn’t understand a word except “Hawaii”
So I said - No I will not be having the “Hawaii pizza” today, I'll have the….looked up at the menu board…???
Me- I’ll have the…. (still staring at the board)…a…pizza.
Pizza guy- Yes….what pizza?….Dubai it was Dubai.
Me- I’ll have the…pizza with… (eyes panicking all over the board, diden’t understand a word)…with…hm
Pizza guy- Yes….what pizza?
Me- I’ll have the…pizza with… (my eyes all of a sudden started to recognise words on the board)…with….. .......cheese…olives….salami… tomato sauce …and minced meat. Yes that is what I want to have on my pizza!?
Pizza guy- Yes, what pizza???? That is on the menu?!
Me- No, it is a special pizza….that is what I want on my pizza. Yes that is what I want today….not the Hawaii.
*Miranda moment/Sex and the city = getting laught at while phoning in an foodorder.
*Hawaii = pizza with tomato saus, chease, ham and pinaple.
* Special pizza= tomato sauce, cheasse, olives, salmi and minsed meat. Not to be recommended!!!
BTW I don’t really like pinaple on my pizza, hardly ever eat it but the yellow looks so cute with the red tomatoes and the pink ham.

that collect’s toys! I got this cute vintage toy from my friend U on my birthday back in June.
When I uploaded this picture and the “little girl blue” started playing, I realised that this picture goes very well with that song. It’s a sad song and the picture is quite sad in some way, can’t really put my finger on it but the doll just looks like a miserable little person on that duck. Over and out!!!

I know I’m a major chicken and super easily freaked out but WHAT IF?
I came up with the brilliant plan of the putting my fingers karate style in the eyes of the bear, and then I realized that the eyes where to far apart….how am I going to be able to save the baby????? I took the easy way out; let’s go and ride on the merry-go-round. My excellent plane worked, I saved the day and avoided the serious bear situation!!!
I know I’m a bit crazy but hey I rather be safe than sorry!!!

I went to the post office yesterday and they gave me a really large packet!!!
And looked at it and told the man behind the desk; No that can’t be it, it’s way to BIG!!!
I carried it in my arms like a newborn baby all the way to my mum’s house. Mie was at mum’s house and she was delighted that I won. She was jumping up and down screaming;
You woooooon, you woooooon, hip, hip, hurrah you wooooon, you won a scrap challenge!!!!!!!!!!!
And then she started dancing and swirling around me singing; scrap challenge, scrap challenge, scrap challenge won a scrap challenge!!!!!!!!!!!
She is really super supportive.
I made a quick LO of Mie last night only using the pink wrapping paper and some embellishments, the wrapping paper was super cute and she loved it!
It was the first time for me to win a scrap challenge and it really made me happy!
Thank you Trish/nattansmom for the prize, I really love it, the colours and patterns are great and very inspiring!
