Happy Birthday from Lapland!


You know what?  We have lots of snow, almost for a month now. Kids really enjoy it, they build snowmen, castles and ride pulkka down the hill. We have had a quite moderate weather, only few days below -20 deg, but the old men say , this will be cold winter. I really hope that not so cold as we had on 1999 in the end of February for a week below -40 deg and one night -52 deg. Then there were large problems in Lapland. You could not use your car, tires were like cubes, electricity broke.. but luckily, in that cold  no-one did get killed by cold directly.

I have a secret to reveal. I know Santa,  very good, I might say. Here is a photo to prove it.Me and Santa

So he really knows are you good or bad! I’ll be again helping him out, in December.

I love the idea of p/hop. Its so simple, but it can make a difference.  As I told to my eldest daughter once, when the nation wide hunger day- action by Finnish Red Cross was going.  It does not matter how much you donate, it matters that you do donate. Big rivers starts from small becks.   You give what is suitable for you, and this idea comes lovely true in P/Hop.  Some of us donates a pattern, I donate  because I like to use pattern.  Simple but working.

So let me wish to all of you, from all of us.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
