I never win anything *stamps my feet*

How little did I know?

Happiest Place in the World

Earlier in the week we were at an event hosted by VisitDenmark, encouraging tourism to Denmark.  To be honest, I’ve been to Copenhagen years ago and it wouldn’t take a lot to get me to go back.  It’s full of happy gorgeous people who know how to sit back and enjoy life, there is so much to see and do and the public transport system is incredibly efficient.

It was at the Home of Danish Design Fritz Hansen (est. 1872) in Central London.  They’d slaughter me for saying this but it’s like a very posh IKEA, but you won’t find any dreaded flat packing and the quality is incomparable.  I’m fully aware that one is Danish and one is Swedish.  As soon as I walked in I wanted to move in.  The place was just oozing with style; simple and elegant!

No, I’m not competitive!

Throughout the evening there was a twitter quiz and they were encouraging creative answers.  I blatantly cheated, retweeting other people’s correct answers, getting my twitter followers to send me the answers and when I couldn’t find the answer I just submitted ridiculous ones in hope of getting a laugh.  For example:

 Question 4:  What does Denmark mean to you?

 Me:  Tall gorgeous blonde men! Easy peasy!

 At the end of the evening, when they were announcing the winners, I was only paying half attention, messing about on my phone, as I really didn’t think I would win!  But, then I heard them call my name.  I went up to collect my prize red faced and then returned to where I’d been standing and had to ask the gentleman beside me what I’d actually won.

Thanks to Scandinavian Airlines and Tivoli Hotel we won a weekend break in Copenhagen inclusive of flights and hotel.

Now the big question….

Do we take our daughter?  Copenhagen is very child friendly, being the birthplace of Lego and the home of Fairytales, I don’t want to spend the weekend walking around feeling guilty thinking how much she would have enjoyed it.  But on the other hand my hubby and I haven’t had a weekend away together since she was born and could really use the time together?  Hmmmm….

Thanks to at travelllll.com for the invite and well done on organizing a great event!




When are you having another baby?

From the day that my daughter was born people have been asking me when I’m having another.  During the first year, when people asked, I would get the overwhelming urge to punch them in the chops! My husband was never coming near me again!  However, as time went on I warmed to the idea but now that she’s 4 and I’m nearly 40 I’m not convinced.

I know people don’t mean malice, but I do think they need a friendly reminder to think before they speak.  There may be two really good reasons that people haven’t had any more children.

a)      They’ve made a conscious decision not to have any more due to age, finances, concerns for the environment, emotional state; they don’t like kids and/or they don’t need anyone to look after them in their old age and are blissfully happy with one.

b)      Or they haven’t been able to!

Just think next time!  A little frontal screening goes a long way!
