      Do they do any celebrating there today,such as fireworks, a day off school/work Parades ?

      Thank you guys! :) We do have a day off from school/work. Otherwise it's a peaceful sort of celebration. We still remember the war and think of all the soldiers who died. It's also winter in here, so that puts a damper on things as well. It's certainly nothing like the fourth of July in America, for example. Mostly we visit cemeteries, light candles, eat well and watch the presidential gala on TV :) I like it that way. It's a day of peace in the otherwise hectic December...

  2. Yes, could you please book us a hotel room? :P

  3. Yes, but I already think about myself 24/7! :D

  4. Wouldn't it be wonderful if I played secret Santa and bought the whole set for you so you could think of me more often? :P

  5. Ah, thanks for the notice, I might not have discovered your post on the thread for a while, not having had that much time to spend on the forum lately. I'll be posting on the thread now :)

  6. First snow! :o

      Hi Frankie

      I hope you don't mind me dropping by . I noticed your post on the main page about the snow . I don't know much about your weather over that way .Is it cold most of the time,and do you have snow a big part of the year ? We usually get our first snowflakes late Otober, but the first snow that really sticks to the ground is usually later in November .

      I detest snow, and the cold and I dread getting big snowfalls, luckily in the south of England we don't get it too often, but once is too much for me, brrrr!!!!

       

  7. Hello Laura, how are you?

    I'm so sorry, I've forgotten to post the Kampusch book! I was visiting my parents last week and forgot to post the book before going to Nurmes, and the week before that I had a guest with me for a whole week and we spent the time studying like mad men. I'll try and get the book in the post this week, I swear! *embarrassed* :)

  8. Oh boy, I missed your Birthday, sorry! Happy belated Birthday! *huggles* :)

    Just came in here to say, in case you meant it when you said you'd not come back to the girly thread: go back and see Weave's and my post :) Please :)

  9. I was so shocked to hear the news about Oslo, I'm so sorry! I hope you and your family and friends are okay and safe *hugs*

      What do you mean, does he have a rep? :D He was very nice, in fact it was the other dude who ripped his shirt into shreads :D An excellent gig.

      Okay, I've arrived and I'm safe so far :P It's 10 PM over here, I think the sun's just set down but it's still as light as by day. I think I'm off the sleepy land now. Nighty night! :)

  12. Hi Charm, it feels like I haven't seen you around in ages! How are you, and what's up? <3

  13. Thanks Pixie, I couldn't listen to the song in full, I became too sad, but I read the lyrics and that was so nice of you! <3

  14. Frankie spent a lovely day in Helsinki, shopping for secondhand books! :)

  15. Frankie had a blast in Estonia, it was very pretty, the language is beautiful (and amusing to us Finns), and I had very good company. Spent a bit too much money... Tomorrow Frankie goes to see Korn!!!

  17. Thanks Pixie! I had noticed that your member's thread was on the first page and I did think whether you'd been writing about the meeting over there. I'll now go and have a look! :)

  18. Goody! And of course you are entitled to your privacy, you don't need to fill us in on the details :) Good luck!! :)

  19. Hi Pixie, thanks for adding me! :) I read in the What's up in June -thread that your meeting with a certain person is in two days, I hope you don't think I'm too nosey but I'd love to hear how it went! :)

  20. Don't worry, I'm as lazy as you! :/ One of these days one of us will snap out of it and write the other one, and then it's chatterbox like we've never seen it :D

  21. Good job reaching the 7,000 posts milestone, you chatterbox you! :D <3

  22. Hello Sara, how are you? :) I was going through my books for my book swap thread, and I have some Finnish novels to offer, but I realised you're most likely the only other person besides me on here who lives in Finland, and since you are a Swedish speaker, there's probably no reason for me to offer any Finnish titles because I assume you don't read anything in Finnish?

  23. 6,000 posts wohoo!

  25. Hi Kate, I'm alright, how are you? Haven't seen you in ages! I hope everything is going well :)
