So we won the whole shebang.
So we won the whole shebang yesterday in the Eurovision Song Contest 🙂 yesterday evening. Of course I’m happy but to be honest, my favorite was the Australian song and I know it’s very popular here since they got the maximum twelve points from us and they also gave us their twelve points 🙂 It seems that Australians have loved Swedish music since Abba won it all 1974. It looked like Russia would win for a very long time but suddenly a few countries didn’t give them a single point but gave us plenty so we passed and won with lots more points. (here’s a link to our song on You tube: Heroes) This year also China showed the show live, that means the show had a potential one billion viewers! I guess we’ll know how many it really was in a day or two.
It feels a bit ironic that the Russian songs always are about love and world peace when Russia itself doesn’t have any problems invading a neighbor country. But the Russian artist sure could sing and the song wasn’t that bad. I don’t think the quality of the competing songs have been this good in years. I did have some trouble understanding why the Italian song was so popular though, three young men looking and sounding much the same as Il Divo but with a song that was a bit old-fashioned. They sure could sing great though.
According to weather predictions yesterday today was supposed to be cloudy and grey, they’ve changed that to sunny and fairly warm instead this morning 🙂 still a bit windy though but since I’m going to mow the last part of the grass, the grass outside my garden, I won’t mind. Lots of flies around already but just the slightly irritating kinds so some wind will just be nice. I started to clean out the wood shed from old blankets and rags I’ve had in the dog house so they would have something warm and nice to sleep on if they so wished. They rarely wish that by the looks of it, it is amazing how many small pieces they can make from a small blanket 🙂
After I’ve cleaned the wood shed I started in the garage. I had filled the trash bin though so I just took the worst in the garage and now have three big sacks of trash that I’ll put in the bin as soon as they’ve emptied it on Friday morning. Lots more in there though, Nova and Sune have done their best to spread things around and tear it all up in small pieces 🙂 I’ll do the laundry too today and after that I must take a nap because I didn’t go to sleep until 1:30 am and woke up as always just after 5 am 🙂
It is time for a pot of coffee and after that I’ll better get started.
Have a great day!
