When the Man accidentally books twice as many tickets for entry into Tivoli as needed, and tickets are not refundable, you simply visit Tivoli twice in one week. And when Daughter feels totally at ease with high speed and high altitude entertainment, the consequence is that both of her parents go on more rides in one day than the previous four/five decades. And that’s how I ended up in a rollercoaster today. Talking about stepping out of my comfort zone.
Copenhagen will be host for the world Pride week later this month. All shops are making references to this event. Inside Magasin you can buy t-shirts and sweaters stating ‘Love is not a crime’. Luckily not in my country. That’s why my brother will get married to the love of his life next week, my almost brother-in-law.
Our friend H stepped by after work. The Man served snacks and dinner, Daughter showed her new Lego tower and we played Carcassonne Junior together. A lovely way to catch up.
I biked to the city center on my own this morning. I wanted to spend a few hours walking through the city, without the need to keep a five year old happy as well. I grabbed a coffee first, then slowly made my way to Illum and even spent some time in Magasin. Bought some sweaters at a great price and then headed home.
I spent the afternoon in Louisiana, the museum for modern art in Humlebæk. There was a lovely exposition called ‘Mor!’ (Mother). Very appropriate as I became a mother since I was last visiting Louisiana. I also discovered the works of the Swedish artist Mamma Andersson and the Danish artist Asger Jorn. Both the Man and I were very charmed by Andersson’s paintings, as she has a very unique style in her work which feels both realistic and unreal at the same time. Lovely discovery.
