Hello – Hello – Hello !!! Always when saying hello 3 times, I remember English lessons in TV. When I was young, we had in TV in Finland English lessons and in the beginning there were a policeman saying Hello, hello, hello! So welcome everyone and thank you so so much for your loving comments on Nero’s quilt! It has been so exiting to see so much beautiful quilts in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival!
Last days Finland has been in our minds! Even we are small country far away in North – we did it! Okey – they did it! Finland won World Champinships in Ice-hockey!!! 6-1 against Sweden!!! Congratulations Finland!!! Last time they won 1995 and again the last game was with Sweden. Then my dear friend brought to us t-shirts – hope to get new ones for our collection – my hb still wears the old one!
“Hey, Nero! What’s this now – we haven’t finished our room yet and here you are sleeping! Come to help me, I can’t do everything alone!”
I think spring-cleaning is boooooooring! Do we really need to do it this year? And may I ask: what cleaning – all the house is upsidedown – every room is a mess – is this a spring-cleaning? Anyway it’s summer. Or at least it should be, but today it is raining …
… at least I don’t need to water the flowers!
By the way, I went to see Mr. Stavors last week. Not that I wanted, but didn’t have any choise. My ear was bad and the vet needed to empty the blood which was under the skin – yagh. I’m glad I was sleeping … all the day … and even the next day I felt tired. Now I’m again ‘myself’ and happy and want to play – but with whom – everyone is running around and fixing things. I hope this is soon over and they calm down!
Hanna tries to help but she can’t, so I said to her, it’s better we go outside and not to disturb their cleaning. Hanna knows that Violetta is often hiding next to the wall – so here she is waiting her to show up!
Hanna is always searching something. I think she has a little bit hunting dog in her, because she loves to smell and find around. Perhaps I could go to collect my balls and toys … but first I’ll go to find Nelli, don’t you think she should help a little bit …
… haaa found you, I knew you try to avoid the spring cleaning!
Now I have to go. I send you lots of sunshine and big warm hugs! I give you a very good advice: don’t start spring cleaning! It’s much better and more fun to sew, knit or plant flowers or PLAY BALL!!!
Hope to see you soon after we have finished all this mess!
Funny you mentioned the Ice Hockey Championship T-shirts! I just looked at mine this morning (on top of the ironing basket) and wished I had a new one. That old one has paint all over it now as we have both (!) used it while renovating the house. I remember I wore it in Japan when I went running, so it certainly isn’t the prettiest t-shirt anymore.
Congratulations Finland!! Dad told us they won…as we don’t see/watch ice-hockey here.
Lots of Hugs!!
That TV programme was Dixon of Dock Green Teje and I also remember it when I was a little girl! It’s good to get the spring cleaning out the way and then you can enjoy the summer outdoors. Well done Finland! We are still waiting for some rain, my garden is SO dry, it’s nearly 2 months with no real rain, so rare here in the UK.
Take care, Jane x
That picture of the roses with the water beading on them are just beautiful. I am glad Nero’s ear is better. That visit to the vet does not sound fun. Nelli is silly hiding out in that box! Congrats to Finland on the Ice Hockey World Championship!
What a cute post. I use the vacuum cleaner so infrequently that my animals are all afraid ot the thing. So, I am putting off spring cleaning so I don’t scare the animals. That’s nice of me, right? I took my Mercy dog to school yesterday. Keep watching for a post on my blog about her visit.
Thank you Nero for making me laugh about the spring cleaning. I will take your advice and do sewing instead :o). I hope your ear is better now and you don’t have to see Mr Stavos again. I have been reading your blog for a month or so now and it always makes me smile and feel happier, so I wanted to say thank you. And please say thank you to Teje when she has finished the spring cleaning!
What a great story; you have a talent for telling a story about something quite boring, like spring cleaning in a way it makes it look like the most exciting experience on earth. I hope Nero’s ear is better now.
Thank you Dorien! When I saw Nero sleeping in the sun I thought that I need to write few words about our busy week! It’s not fun to clean but it’s great to have everything cleaned and in order again! Nero’ ears are much better now and he is happy! Xxx Teje & Nero
Congratulations to Finland! And well done on getting on with the spring cleaning – I am doing some here this weekend too. I hope poor Nero’s ear is better now. Have a lovely weekend, Teje, and I hope you have time to enjoy those beautiful flowers – such lovely colours!
Hi hi. Thanks for your message to me. I did email you about your win, but when there was no reply I blogged so you would see it, but then your comment to me comes as ‘no reply’ for you, so I though this was the best way to be sure to get to you!
WELCOME AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISIT!
I am a Finnish woman living in Greece! My days are filled with sewing, quilting and other crafts.
