Super weekend

Blogger has been acting strangely lately, and my latest post was missing whole day yesterday, and I couldn't sign into my account either. And even the post is now re-published (by blogger), all the wonderful comments are still missing - thank you so much for the stripey-love. Blogger announced the comments should re-appear later, fingers crossed. I wouldn't mind that much normally, but I had a new post in mind for yesterday already, and when I couldn't publish it... Annoyed is a quite lame expression.

This weekend is a real super weekend for us Finns. We made it into Eurovision Song Contest Finals, and the big event is today! If you are interested (and this is a night for pure fun, nothing is too serious here), take a look at our Paradise Oskar, he'll sing bravely as the very first contestant! Da da dam!

But the wonderfulness doesn't stop there! We, meaning our team, made it into Ice-hockey World Championship finals! I can't believe it! And we'll be playing against our beloved enemy Sweden. The game is on Sunday, and my hands are sweating already. If we do take the gold, I mean WHEN we win, this country will go crazy. Like it did 1995 when we last won. Take a look, please.

This is something else, really, and I apologize dearly being super-lame and wish you FINNtastic weekend!

I will definately be watching the Eurovision Song Contest tonight and even though my hubby won't admit it he will be watching too x Can't wait to give my own scores. It's fun to watchx

Have a great weekend! Leah. x :)

Thank you, Kerry!

The blue-white set is by Marimekko (their unikko-series), and it's my "better china" ;) so when and if there will be winning(s) happening this weekend, these will be on!

Happy weekend!


Mia said...

Let's have a wonderful evening, Leah!

I'll be the main watcher here too, but somehow the sofas are always full still even the others are not "that much bothered" ;)

Sunny weekend!

Hello Mia!
Beautiful Finish blue post!
Songs are singing while I write to you! Thanks for telling about the ice hockey - how I didn't hear anything (perhaps too many other things going on now)! I remember so well the last time and we have still t-shirts for the last winning with my hb!
I have the same 'Unikko' cups but red, now they will remind me of you!
Good luck to us!!!
xxx Your Finnish friend Teje
Ps. I couldn't leave a comment last time...all those pouches were so sweet and adorable!

Mia said...

Hello Teje,

Blogger has been having many hiccups lately, and I am sorry you couldn't leave a comment earlier! The older comments from that post are also still missing :(

Oh, ice-hockey tonight! It'll be a thriller! I need a knitting to keep me calm (and that might not help either) - is there a internet-site you could use to see, perhaps somewhere here: http://areena.yle.fi/video/1305123825734 ?

Happy Sunday!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
