Today my friend and her three kids came to see me to celebrate my birthday (which is tomorrow). They brought me some awesome little gifts, like this calendar. It’s obvious that my friend has heard about my evil cat! I think the calendar might have been my favourite gift.

Quote from inside: “Does your cat bring you dead animals? It’s not a gift. It’s a warning.”

The kids also got me some awesome refrigerator magnets that were loads of letters that looked as if cut out of a paper. So I can now put ransom notes on my fridge! I also got an ice-cube form in the shape of brains, for a proper brain freeze.

It was fun having them over, and we had something I suspect might be typically Swedish (please tell me if I’m wrong!). We call it Meringue Suisse (or marängsviss in our Swedishified version), and it’s basically ice cream with whipped cream, bananas, meringues and chocolate sauce. Unhealthy like you don’t want to know, but oh so yummy!

    I’ve never had that, but I would like to. How much are plane tickets to Sweden? :D

    • Tania says:

      They are a lot, apparently (curiousity got the better of me). And yet, oddly, still cheaper than flying to certain places within my own country (for real). o.O

      I think the cheaper option would be to make one yourself :D It’s really just having all the things, and putting them together in a bowl *lol* It’s about as easy as it gets :P (and why I chose it over cake, since most kids will eat it!)

    I didn’t know it was Swedish or anything, but I’ve created something similar after having a load of egg whites that needed using and googleing ‘things to make with meringue, this came up!
    It was SOSOSOSOSOOSOSO good, I need to do it again, mine was like yours, but I also baked some chewie brownies and mixed them in too mmmmmmmm :D

    Happy belated birthday Em :) here’s something for you…

    So you were born on 13th Aug 1980 so according to numerology…

    Your Life Path Number is => 3 and it means,
    You are all about performance! Number 3′s are entertainers
    of the world and most of them are truly gifted musicians,
    writers, actors, dancers, public speakers and politicians.
    The number 3 life path is one that is characterized by
    beauty, excitement, eccentricity and fame. Number 3′s
    stray off their life path by giving up their dreams and
    talents. Many escape into drug abuse or promiscuity to
    avoid hearing the nagging voice of their true calling to
    express their talents.
    :P (does it match with you)
