Danish dictionary

on July 29, 2005

The avatar is a Snitch, only I did the wings white instead of gold, in case you were wondering.

My new Danish dictionary arrived today, and the post office wanted CHF 15.30 (7 pounds) for it, which is kind of weird because when you order something from abroad you expect them to pay all the postage, not just part! Anyway I didn’t have any cash in the house so they took it away again… I’ll go down and collect it when Dan brings me some money this evening. I’m really pleased, now I can sell my old one (to anyone looking for a Gyldendals Danish to English dictionary from 1995: it’ll be on Amazon.co.uk in a couple of days) and I’ll be able to do a much better job of translating things.

Tomorrow we are going to go and buy a baby-carrier. I’m hoping it might be discounted due to July sales, but it seems a bit unlikely. We did get our pram half-price due to it being last year’s model (!), it’s one of those that you can adapt for a newborn or a toddler up to about age 3 so we’re pleased with it. And it has a bell on the handle which makes a really unpleasant “plunk” sort of sound, which I plan to use on unsuspecting smokers who light up in the vicinity of my baby. Probably not what it’s meant for but hey.

When we were in Spain a couple of weeks ago we were queuing for a bus ticket, and some bloke came up, stood right next to me, looked with interest at my bump (quite visibly a pregnancy bump, I might add), and lit up! It’s at times like this where I could see the lure of being a Death Eater… or even just Ginny. You’d think twice about smoking next to a pregnant woman without asking her opinion first, if you thought she might suddenly turn your bits into a family of ravenous flesh-eating slugs. Evil git.
