Birthday week with BBQ

This week was Emil's birthday. He turned 26 and is my youngest!! How can I have a son of 26 and he's the youngest? It's quite hard to take in that it was 26 years ago.

He was my easiest one to deliver :-) It took just over 4 hours from the first contraction until he was out. It was the day of the Eurovision Final and I remember Johnny Logan won. Amongst others were Gente di Mare and Israel's Huppa Hulle Hulle hulle.

The day was just beautiful with sunshine (although they had predicted rain) and a temperature around + 25 :-) Long time since that happened.
Anyway we had BBQ and each of us did our own skewer. We had fillet of pig and beef, sausages spicy and not so spicy, corn, tomatoes, red onions, mushroms and meatballs. To that I served fresh dill boiled potatoes and a wonderful sallat with avocado, feta cheese, sallat, cucumbers, tomatoes and onions. It was truly a feast. Jonas and Mandy also came and we had a great time together :-)

I have also been on a board meeting with the Rheumatic association as we have a chairmen conference next weekend so we needed to prepare and decide the program for the days.

After that it's only one week until Prague :-)

I also visited my Mom today. She was very tired when I came and she never really snap out of that. I don't know but she almost looked as she was on some medication. Even when we sat drinking coffe and talking she almost feel asleep and that is not something she usually does. She usually will be happy and likes to talk (although we don't understand what she's saying) but not today. I hope she's more alert next time. One thing is that they have changed all personal where she lives and to do that with people with Alzheimers is not a good idea. They get confused and worried when their routines are changed.

I hope you all have a good week and take care!
