I love surprising people!

Because it was my mum's birthday on Monday I had intended to come to Denmark on that day and surprise her, but then my dad told me they were going to be out of town, so I couldn't do that.

What I did do instead was come over yesterday, before they came back from their wee mini-trip so that I'd be here when they returned. And the look on mym mum's face, when she saw me standing in the doorway, was definitely worth getting up for at 4am. ;-)

In my family it is tradition that you have hot cocoa with homemade buns (and sometimes cake) on your birthday, so I had prepared that for when they came home (although I didn't make the buns, only heated them), so it was like a birthday for my mum. Whipped cream for the cocoa, little Danish flags stuck into the buns and presents that she was very pleased with.

Nice surprises are good.
