Do ilove horses? My youngest daughter Jil  loves horses sooo much, and ilove her sooo much that we finally gave in. We bought her her own horse. Her love for horses started the day she learned how to talk and hasn't stopped since. We always said we would not buy her a horse so she rode the little wild Shetland ponies my neighbour farmer keeps.

   This is her on one of them. (same hairdo:))

She even took one of them with her, all fancy dressed, to show him off on the school playground. But they did not belong to her.

So when the farmer decided (after being single for a long time and finally meeting a girlfriend) that all the little ponies had to leave, Jil became the saddest girl in the world. That's when  Mummy started a lobby with hubbie to convince him it was time to buy her her own  pony (and believe me it wasn't easy :))  So here's the result of my lobby, Jil  with her own pony called Promiss.

The happiest girl in the Universe

Another lovely monday today, at least it's one for me. I've been working my *** off this last week, weekend included. So today my weekend started. After helping my two girls and hubbie out of the house ( am i a bad mother/wife when i'm glad they actually left for school/work :)  With the house to myself again i sat down with my usual cappucino and  a new interior magazine. Then the sunlight hit my baby birdie hoptimist. I bought her last summer in Denmark and she makes me smile everytime i see her.

She is created by Gustav Ehrenreich a Danish designer. She was wrapped in a great box and it was love at first sight. Her being pink might have something to do with it :) and of course  she immediately connected with my inner child :))
I hung her at our chandelier and now and then i pull her string and she looks very happy, just like me at this beautiful  monday morning.

Have a happy,happy Monday too!

ilove....good packaging

So good to see that my blogfriends have not forgotten me, thanks sweeties for all your lovely comments.
Now back to work.
Don't you all agree that good packaging is at least 50% of the attraction (doesn't this go for men too;)
This is what i mean with good packaging

I would take my vitamins faithfully every day if presented like this. (besides the fact that i would prefer liquid  in stead of those awfull big pills)

Ok, i admit. I would eat this without good packaging................why do you think i make the healthy smoothies in the morning?  (so i can eat junkfood at night)

Let's celebrate this beautiful monday!

ilove....Sophie Dahl's voluptuous delights

Hi darlings, i got back from my cocoon. I needed it I guess.... sometimes i feel like i'm a bit like the main character in my all time favorite movie "into the wild".
 I just get fed up with all material things and see no sense in buying stuff and decorating my house. ( ok a small exception for the new winterboots i bought :0
So i started of by making a new header, this might not be the final one ( i think it's a little big) what do you think about it? Gosh i missed you all!I will try to catch up on some of your posts.

While i was in my cocoon i did do a lot with my other obsession, cooking.
My new heroe is Sophie Dahl and her latest cookbook, "Miss Dahl's voluptuous delights"  . I know it's been on the market for a while, but i just started to appreciate it.
My favorite breakfast in the morning now is the Blueberry strawberry smoothie.
The secret ingredient i looooove is peanut butter.Believe me this smoothie contains everything you need to kick start your day!

                                                                 So here is the recipe

Serves 2
115g/1 cup of frozen blueberries
200g/1 cup of frozen strawberries
1  scoop of protein powder ( i like the vanilla tasted ones)
250ml/1 cup of soya milk
Honey to taste ( i never need it)
Peanut butter (optional)

Just throw everything in a blender and sip it through a straw. Enjoy!
