Placed between highways, my home town Herning is a centre for industrial and commercial fairs. Someone was kind to give me tickets for “Formland”, where retailers find the news trends and designs. For the first time in the twenty-seven years I have lived here, was I able to go and have a look. The result will appear in two blog […]
Last Friday was a moving and memorable time for me. I met with my fellow nursing students for the first time since we graduated in 1975 at an old hospital in Copenhagen.

#WeekendCoffeeShare 29 May If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have been very occupied finding old catalogues on former days’ prams or baby carriers.
