Migraines and Burgers

So, today? Not a good day.

Yesterday I had a migraine, so I went to bed early. At 3 am I woke up so dizzy I thought I was on a ship. You know when you just drink WAY too much and everything is spinning and spinning when you’re trying to sleep? Well, it was exactly like that. I was extremely nauseated and couldn’t even close my eyes without making it worse. So off we went to the bathroom. TMI time: green bile is really, really disgusting to throw up. In case anyone wanted to know.

This morning I was supposed to get up at 6.45 to make it to school, which sadly didn’t happen. I still can’t even stand up without my legs giving up under me so it’s going to be a very boring day.

But except for the migraine, school is AWESOME! I have never in my life been this excited about school; the class is amazing, people are super nice, and even though we’ve only been in the kitchen once so far, it was amazing. We made burgers, individually, and homemade mayo. Mine was a tiny bit too sour because we used a different mustard than what we do at home, but completely edible. The beef was a-m-a-z-i-n-g and I was sooo sad that I wasn’t hungry enough to eat it all because it was delicious!

My delicious burger!

The potatoes were actually good, too, even though I did forget about them for too long while I was trying to explain to the others how to make mayonnaise. Still, they were completely fine and just the way I like them 😉

I’m over halfway through my Wreck This Journal and have bought a box-set of 4 Keri Smith books – Wreck This Journal, Mess, The Scavenger, and This Is Not A Book – and I’m hoping to show you some of the pages soon. We’ve also finally bought our son a play-kitchen which I started spray painting the other day. You know, 5 minutes before it started raining for the first time in a month. Because such is my luck.

What have you guys been up to? Have you started school yet?

WIN prices for over 15.000 kr (and help 29 kids while you’re at it)

Today I was going to write about the awesome burger I made during yesterday’s evaluation (aka. first day in kitchen) and about Zenji (because they’re actually extremely awesome) but instead I’ll push that post a few days to tell you this.

DINNødhjælp (in English YourAID) is a Danish organisation (no, don’t run away, please just stay for 5 minutes, I’ll make it quick) who helps children in Afrika who have been shunned from their families and villages for various reasons – most of these include the child being accused of being a witch (!) and blaming them for random sh*t like “the corn didn’t grow, you’re a witch, you must die”. Stupidity at its highest, really.

DNCopyright belongs to DINNødhjælp

But the people behind DINNødhjælp actually help these kids. They make sure to fix all the paperwork while the kid is transferred to the children’s home where 29 kids currently reside. Some of these kids aren’t older than 2-3 years. I can’t imagine my son (who’s currently 14 months) be out on the streets, alone, beaten up, hungry… And I seriously hope people who do this and people who think it’s okay get their balls chopped off.

The prices

But I promised a 15.000 kr price you could win, right? If you head over to Andentilhøjre.dk, you can be part of the competition/giveaway as well as read a lot more about the organisation and what they do. A lot of different companies have donated very awesome things in order to create this giveaway and raise awareness. You can also find them on facebook where they post a lot of useful information as well as pictures so you can see where the money is spent.

Should you wish to donate, you can do so here, but it’s in no way mandatory in order to be part of the giveaway.

And please do share on facebook, twitter and your blog! Thank you! (:
