laugh with me!!!!!!!!

when someone brings you a ruler and asks you to measure the distance between their pupils.....and all you can do is drop whatever it is you are doing laugh and get on with the know that this person will always make you laugh!!!!!!!

"There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour"
Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

"Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is by far the best ending for one"
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

citizen of the world.....

the world can be such a teeny tiny place....and what fun to come across a real citizen of the world....
there i was happily sitting when the man sitting beside me spilled his champagne all over me....and whatever happy day i was having....i didn't react....he kept thanking me for being so NICE!!!!!! and i said don't worry about must be my lucky day as the broken glass didn't cut me....ANYWAY!!!!!! .......perhaps a strange way to begin chatting....but this lovely man was a happy korean with a danish accent!!!!!!! which i kept smiling about!!!!!!! the danes have a wonderful accent when they speak english and sometimes it doesn't really matter what they are saying it is just so nice to listen to.... and sometimes you might even feel like you are speaking danish although you aren't and can't but the ear can play wonderful tricks on you!!!!!!!
well thanks to me stinking of someone else's champagne....i ended up meeting a cosmopolitan person who was a happy chatterbox!!!!!!!!

i suppose you never know where spills in life will take you........

 there was a time when you could pick up the phone or walk into a restaurant in the winter and happily get a table..........but times have changed!!!!!!!!
 whatever happened to the hibernating swedes in the winter.....a thing of the past!!!!!!!!!! today whatever the weather conditions.....if you try and be spontaneous and last WILL NOT GET A TABLE!!!!!!!!!!
stockholm has become a hip happening, cosmopolitan, party happy city!!!!!!!!! swedes love to go out and the city buzzes with life on the weekends especially!!!!!!!!!!

     and the beauty about this city and its fabulous restaurants is that they wont disappoint!!!!!!!

so last night.......forgetting what a cool city we all live in....we found ourselves.....without a booking....
and instead....on very very short notice.....had a home cooked meal et voilĂ !!!!!!!
it was fabulous!!!!!!!!!! i have already blogged about one of my maestro chef friends and here is the other....some people were just born to throw food together and create masterpieces!!!!!!!!!!

                                                   with laughter and happiness!!!!!!!!!
