First of all: congrats on waiting till the 24th! I got you a homemade christmas calendar for your birthday and I know how much you hate waiting so I'm really proud of you if you lasted this long. (I wonder if you opened the last envelope a few weeks ago and came here wondering what the last surprise will be. So here it comes.)
But my 24th surprise didn't go exactly as I planned. I was supposed to make London out of ginger bread and take pictures of it. First I thought I'd make the Reynolds house, Gallery Cafe, The Approach Tavern and Victoria Park. Then I narrowed it down to Victoria Park with the Pavilion Cafe.
I started my project very confident of my success. One of my friends told me it sounded a bit ambitious and I said to her: "Well, my dear friend, ambitious is my middle name."
Jeeze Louise that sounds cocky right about now. The thing is I started baking the ginger bread houses and all of them went to the garbage! It was so hard you can't imagine! (I've made a Muumitalo before so I really do blame the batter...)
So I had to come up with a plan B. I remembered I still had a roll of film in my Diana from the amusement park Linnanmäki. We went there together before you left for London. And I was really excited to get those photos developed and be a part of your birthday/xmas present.
But yesterday when I got the film...it was something totally different!
I do like these although there is nothing too special about them.
But I like the fact that it's a bit hard to tell what it is in the pictures.
All of my days
Watch the sky breaking on the promise that we made
All of this rain
And I've been trying to find
What's been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night--
