New Years in pictures

The year 2017 was amazing, it was the year that I finally started my nurses assistant education, the year that I found out how it really felt like to be a nurses assistant and how busy it can be, but also rewarding!

It was the year that my amazing fiancé found work as a tiler and I am so insanely proud of him, he is such a strong man and such a wonderful dad and a fantastic fiancé

This year has been hard work, fun, exciting and down right busy! I found a job as an uneducated carer, so I’m basically working two jobs – one as an intern and one as uneducated, it’s hard, but it’s rewarding, I love helping and caring for people and I can’t wait to go to work again! I wouldn’t have it any other way.. My work is a part of who I am, and I am proud of that!

2017 has been a year of growth for me, a year where I’ve built up my confidence and where I have had so much love and support from my fiancé in almost everything I’ve done! I can’t thank him enough..

It’s also been the year where I’ve finally gotten my drivers license – something I’ve been putting off for forever, because I lived close to everything and never needed to drive. – But now I finally have it, and I’m driving! What’s even better is, I got my moms car to drive in all the time, since she hardly used it, I’m so thankful for that!

My little sister finished her masters degree in IT – I’m such a proud big sis, she is such a brainy girl and I know she will end up becoming someone great, she is just that type of girl. Determined and insanely smart

It’s also been a year of redecorating, where we redid the entire bedroom – newly painted and newly furnitured, now we just want a new bed, and a few bits and bobs, I really love that bedroom now!

2017 has also been all about spending time with my bonus babies, and I miss them dearly right now! They were here the summer of ’17, for three weeks, and I cried horribly when they had to go home! I felt miserable for weeks..

I truly hope that everyone had a wonderful and safe celebration of the new year and that 2018 will be an amazing year, mine can’t be anything but, cause I have them three wonderful bonus babies, my fiancé and my family by my side! I couldn’t wish for anything more from 2017, it’s been the best year I could have imagined!

See you online guys! x

Christmas in pictures

My Christmas was spent with my fiancé, my parents and my little sister

My Christmas was spent with my fiancé, my parents and my little sister – it was a wonderful evening ❤️
The presents this year from my fiancé – he knows me too well! The Glow Kit from ABH, mystery box, MAC long lasting lipstick in the Metallic “Softly Rockin” and MAC lip liner in “Whirl”, these were my four main presents, I’m spoilt lol..
The items in my Mystery Box! A teddy, which is a microbe – The common cold (wasn’t in the box, he bought it separately) bicycle balls – back lights to place under the seat lol! Pizza socks, so cozy! Hyper lips, a gamer mug, a mindless coloring book and edible bubbles! – The Mystery Box is always a hit, I seriously adore it! Quirky is my middle name haha!
My mom and dad bought me a double bedcover, a really nice sweater from Guess and a gorgeous hand soap and bath gel! My little sister got me a lip primer from Golden Rose, and also a gift certificate to Golden Rose – I quite like that store!
All in all it was a wonderful Christmas and I was spoilt more than I ever imagined, I must say I spoilt my fiancé just as much as he spoilt me, although his boss ended up spoiling him even more and got him a PS4… Beat that?! Yep… lol
We had lovely and calm Christmas and after all the food was eaten and the presents opened, my little sister, fiancé and I, ended up playing a game I bought my fiancé – it was a hit! It’s called Joking Hazard, it’s quite insane, it’s from Cyanide and Happiness, I posted a picture below of one of the jokes we made that evening – we were howling with laughter 😂
I hope everyone had a merry Christmas and will have a wonderful New Year, see you online guys! x

Everything’s happening so fast

Hi everyone!

– And sorry for being so out of touch with the blog, but life got in the way..

Right now is the first time in ages that I have a moment to spare, to sit down, be bored, watch a movie, write my blog and so on. The only thing I have been persistent in updating, is my Instagram! So do take a look, there is a lot of new pictures!

Right now I am relaxing, drinking Cuba watermelon mixed with Carlsberg sport (pop basically) – It’s gorgeous, you guys got to try it if you haven’t! It’s so hot outside, it’s finally spring in Denmark, so I thought it was the perfect drink for the evening – not that I drink a lot, but today just called for it! But while I’m drinking this, I am watching a movie on netflix called ”Safe Haven”, a really good movie I might add, watch it sometime, but I gotta warn ya, its a ”girly movie” as my fiancé would put it. 😉


Tomorrow we are spending time with my family, firing up the grill and having some steaks and sausages, yum! I can’t wait, it’s gonna be awesome! 😛

I am happier than ever in life, I love my fiancé and every day, he makes me happy that I’m with him. It’s corny, but I even love cooking for him. I love spoiling him, making him lunches for work, just anything that makes his life a little easier, and why? Because I love him, just because I simply love him. He makes me smile, laugh and just stronger. I would never have dared starting my education as a Care Assistant if it wasn’t for him. He made me who I am in a way, he patched up a part of me that I had no idea was broken. He have been struggling real hard to find a job here in Denmark, not just any job, but a job as a tiler, and he found it! He is now working as a tiler in a small company and have made some great friends too, that just makes me so happy, I’m insanely proud of him!



Life is just so insanely exciting as a Care Assistant intern. I have tried a lot of things, that even some educated Care Assistants haven’t – or so they told me! 😉

I gave B12 intramuscularly – which means ”injection into the muscle”, that was probably the most intense injection I’ve tried so far! 😮 The needle is huge, or so it seems the first time you give the injection, I was calm on the outside, but inside I was shaking a little.. It went perfectly fine, no bleeding or anything and it went into the muscle perfectly, so I was happy and so was the patient! 😀

I have dealt a lot with insulin injections, their fairly easy, and so is the blood sugar measurements, but their a lot of fun, and its a whole new chapter that’s opening up for me, having to study about it and get into the whole ”fast working insulin and slow working insulin”, it’s so exciting!

I have worked with catheter’s too, observing them, inserting them, rinsing them, changing them and so on. That’s pretty cool too, even tho’ inserting them can be a challenge! No ones alike down there, just sayin’ 😀 haha!

Then I have tried to change an Ostomy, which can be really tricky and also messy, but luckily it weren’t – that time! 😛


I have probably done a lot more, but I have honestly forgotten, because I have been allowed to do so many new things, and I love the fact that I have! I have the best mentor, I can only ever say good things about her, I have to be at this place for 6 months, and I’m not wanting to leave the place at all! ❤ Even tho its way out at the country side, where there is farms and files n’ miles of fields! But it’s just beautiful..

So as you all can read, everything seems to just be working out for us (me and my fiancé), we have struggled a bit, but that’s over now, I can’t wait for the summer vacation, having his kids over, just like last year, I miss them very much. ❤

I hope you guys had as good a day as I have, I couldn’t have hoped for a better day, it was very busy, with a hairdressers appointment, grocery shopping, dog sitting, washing clothes and snapping pictures, but I loved today, every second of it!

See you online! x

From 2016 to 2017

I have a lot to tell you guys!

A lot of new and exciting things have happened lately, goals I have reached, all new opportunities and much more.. I hardly know where to begin, so I will try to tell you guys everything and hope I remember everything. I haven’t been writing a lot lately, actually not at all, but I have been insanely busy with my education and just everyday life, my work / internship, my fiancé and my family, so I have neglected the blog, and I am sorry, I hope to have a lot more time from now on, to write, which I really love to do.

Love:

My fiancé and I are doing fantastic, he is truly the love of my life. Everything seems simple with him and I feel stronger and a lot more confident than I ever did before. He changed everything when he came into my life, and I have him to thank for a lot of positive changes in my life. – My education especially, I couldn’t have done it without him and his support, he is nothing but amazing.

We are planning a complete redecoration of our home, and we already did some of it, the kitchen is done all up, and is looking gorgeous! We got a new sofa too, and soon we will get a new TV unit and coffee table. My fiancé have always been amazing at DIY, and our kitchen is made by him completely, the tiling and everything.

We are having a lot of ideas for the future and its so exciting to be able to plan all of this together, I’m a lucky woman.

My education and work:

Well as you all might already know, I started my Care Helper education (SOSU hjælper in Danish), I went to Greve and got an internship, and I started my internship, and I met so many new and amazing people, the colleagues I worked with, have been nothing but amazing, and I felt part of the team instantly. I love working with elderly, and I feel like I’m making a huge difference in people’s life, by just being there and being me – what more could I wish for? – But I got luckier than I ever imagined!

Shortly after my internship, still half a year to go of my education, I got offered another contract by Greve Communes education consultant as an assistant, Nurses Assistant – or Care Assistant if you like. It’s huge to me, I will be skipping my Care Helper education and moving directly on to the Assistant education, the one education that I wished to have, the helper just being a way to reach my main goal.

I will be able to dose pills, do catheter care (flushing them out, insert them and change them), tend wounds – all sorts! I love it, it’s so exciting to me and I can’t wait to begin! I have already started to try different Assistant tasks just before the new year, and now I have a bit of school, I will proceed on the Helper education, until its time to start the Assistant education, which will be Feb the 20th. January I will be doing my internship at the same care center, and there I will be experiencing the work tasks of an Assistant, oh I can’t wait!

I can’t express how grateful and lucky I feel, and how much I appreciate this amazing opportunity, my work means the world to me, and my workplace too, I love my colleagues! I found the one thing that I want to work with, the rest of my life.

Exorcise:

I was the lucky winner of a fitness package from Club Matas, I won a Garmin Smart Scale and a Garmin Vivofit 3 watch!

the weight is Wi-Fi connected, it measures weight, body mass index, body fat, skeletal muscle mass and more, recognizes up to 16 users and have up to 9 months of battery life!

The watch features 1+ year battery life, it shows steps, calories, distance, intensity minutes and time of day on backlit display; monitors sleep, have an auto activity detection classifies activity type on Garmin Connect, it reminds you to stay active with move bar and audible alert and automatically syncs to Garmin Connect to save, plan and share progress.

I love the watch! Am wearing it every day, and It’s amazing, I walk a lot at work, I walk about 6,5 kilometers, for me that’s about 10.500 steps a day, and it shows how many calories I burn doing it, am quite loving this! So in 2017, its time to get fit and watch out for my body, I want to strengthen my back, cause in my line of work, I use my back a lot!

My Coca Cola detox:

I was quite addicted to Cola, I wrote a blog post about the addiction and what it did to me, headaches, dizziness, nausea and tremors when I didn’t drink the stuff, I had pretty much every damn withdraw symptom in the book! It scared me so much, that I quit drinking it, and It’s been a year since I drank the stuff and to be honest, if it wasn’t for my fiancé, I would probably be drinking it still. – I’m thankful, and very proud of myself, I actually stopped drinking that stuff and I quit an addiction! I don’t smoke, I don’t really drink – all I really did was drink Cola, but that was bad enough. Now It’s over and it feels fantastic!

Books:

I started to read a lot again, and I quite adore thriller books, am reading one currently that’s called ”The slaughter man” by Tony Parsons, in English. Have been thinking about writing some book reviews again, I love reading and if I find any good books, I might as well send some reviews your way!

Merry christmas and a happy new year!

Hope you all had a merry Christmas and a happy New Year, I sure did, I was spoilt immensely this Christmas, and my New year was calm and relaxing, just as both my fiancé and I needed. Christmas was spend with my family this year, with duck and a pork roast and all the trimmings us Danes usually have. New years were steaks and salad, cream potatoes and some gorgeous bread. It was highly needed, family around us and some us time, just finally relaxing, we really needed that.

See you guys online x

 

 

 

 

Being someone’s “bonus” 

I told you guys in my last post, that I have had so much going on and have been very busy, that’s the reason I’ve been a bit quiet here! 🙂 

A picture from Tivoli


I finally have a little time now, and I can share with you all what I’ve been up to! 

My fiancé have been blessed earlier in life with three amazing kids and I get along with very well with their mother, she is a good friend of mine I might add and a brilliant mom! Their three kids have been on vacation here in Denmark for two weeks, and I’ve been experiencing how it is to be a “bonus mom”. ❤️

A picture from Copenhagen zoo

 
We went to Tivoli (A Danish amusement park), we went to the Zoo in Copenhagen and we went to Dino Land in our town (a huge indoor playground). We did a lot while they were here, and it was amazing to be a part of their life, I’m really lucky to be able to see them grow up like this. Their truly amazing kids and so well behaved.

A picture from Tivoli

As soon as they left us at the airport, I must admit, I cried. I was getting so used to having them around, the laughs, the hugs and the busy days.. Our home was empty and quiet after they left, it really was. They will always have a home here in Denmark with their dad and I, their brilliant kids, all tree of them.

So this is why I’ve been so madly busy, and I’ve been loving it! I now understand the busy life of a parent / bonus parent, but also the joy that comes with it – it’s truly unique. So to every parent or bonus parent out there, so much love from me to you! It’s hard work, but it must be so rewarding.

See you guys online! x

Thursday evening out

Thursday was spent with my family, or most of my family that is! My mom couldn’t come with us but at least I got to spend some time with my dad, Bigsister, nephew, little sister and my amazing fiancé.

We went to a Chinese restaurant called Jin Jiang, it’s very close to the harbor side in Denmark, a cozy place that serves a great buffet! What I love most about that place is the fruit, it’s fresh and tastes amazing, nothing beats really fresh fruit. 

   
   
They also make some incredible sushi and I adore their deep fried prawns! The pictures above are food from their restaurant. We always chose the buffet and we have never been disappointed, I love eating there and today it was nice, quiet and cozy. Normally it’s mad busy, but luckily not today.

  
A quick picture of me before we were going out, for a change it’s black and white, I normally don’t like that, I think I look ghostly, but this picture is alright I guess. My hair have grown quite a bit since last year, I mostly just let it be and only recently I got my ends trimmed, which wasn’t much, so it’s become pretty long and it’s a bit strange having it this long, but also nice for a change!

I had a pretty good evening today, I am lucky to have a big family to share my life with, even though it can be difficult at times, chaotic and even stressful, but their always there for me and if things go south, I am blessed to have my fiancé who always seems to know what to say or what to do. You don’t chose your family, but I got quite lucky with mine.

I hope you all have spent “little Friday” / Thursday in good company, doing something productive or just a relaxed! 

See you online guys! x

My day in pictures

A day out with my dad, iced coffee at Baresso, with a chocolate scones, Pandora was visited and I got another charm, this one was from my dad, the one I linked below, so now these are the charms that I have on my bracelet.

  
    

   
   

It was nice spending some time alone with my dad, he picked the charm, I think it’s really cute and I am pretty spoiled, I really needed a father / daughter day and I think it was nice to finally spend some real time together just talking. 💕

Am gonna cook a very nice meal for my fiancé tonight, I love cooking actually, I find it relaxing and creative. 

Right now I am waiting for him to come home, so we can enjoy the weekend and Valentine’s Day together this weekend, we are not making a big deal out of it, just a nice meal and candles, I will make sure to spoil him though, he deserves that! 

Hope you all have an amazing day, see you online! xx
